This 75 minute podcast covers web remoting concepts and the following specific patterns:

  • XMLHttpRequest Call Use XMLHttpRequest objects for browser-server communication. (05:00)
  • IFrame Call Use IFrames for browser-server communication. (31:45)
  • HTTP Streaming Stream server data in the response of a long-lived HTTP connection. (47:00)

  2. Just wanted to say that I love your show. Very informative for someone like me who doesn’t have enough hours in the day to keep up with all the latest re: AJAX and similar things. I’m on the road an hour every day and with your show I can fill that time doing something productive and interesting. Keep up the great work.

    P.S. Those “earcons” were pretty loud compared to the volume level of the rest of the podcast. Every time the Pole Position one played it scared the bejeesus outta me because I wasn’t expecting it. 😉

  3. Thanks for these – it has been really helpful in getting started. One question if I may (possibly very dumb), you mention a “gottcha” in this podcast (about the 24 minute mark to be exact) whereby when remoting using web services, you may need to change the Content-Type to text/html. Any idea how you actually do this (change this setting), with a .Net web service (or in Visual Studio 2005)?
