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.
- The Script Tag Hack is one option if you can use JSON as your data format. Douglas Crockford also talks about this.
- Cameron Adams talks specifically about APIs and mentions an ingenious use of .htaccess.
- Jonathon Snook has a round-up of the various techniques you use.
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.
