XmlHttpRequest Libraries (JavaScript)

JavaScript libraries for working with XmlHttpRequest (i.e. getting information from a server after a page has loaded without loading a new page in your browser). Only three that I know of and they are cross browser compliant.

  • Sarissa. Powerful with many features.
  • XHConn. Very lightweight library and simple to use. Basically supply the page to request and then use a function to deal with that request (i.e. replace contents of a textarea), can be done in just four lines of code.
  • DataRequester. Another lightweight library (added Apr 29th, 2005)
