Cross-domain Ajax

I just gave a talk on Ajax at the Flash On The Beach conference. I was talking to some guys afterwards and I wanted to just post some links here that are relevant to what we were talking about—mostly trying to do cross-domain Ajax.

This is all quite different to the model employed by Flash which requires a cross-domain policy file on the requested server.

Douglas Crockford outlines a solution that he’d like to see implemented in future browsers called JSONRequest.

I played with a script that does this too. Might be of interest.

Just thought i’d say thanks for remembering our conversation and posting the links. Oh, and once again, loved the speech - i’ll be adopting and recommending the HIJAX approach from now on. I’ve also realised that at least 3 of our product names at work are "bacronyms" …

I added another cross domain technique to Dojo, XHR IFrame Proxy:

It uses some cross-domain iframes that communicate by changing each other’s fragment identifiers. The XHR request is serialized into fragment identifers, and the remote IFrame deserializes the identifiers, makes the XHR request, then serializes the response into fragment identifiers, and gives that back to the other frame.
