   RE: [xml-dev] What Does SOAP/WS Do that A REST System Can't?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

At the risk of spawning a subthread, I find myself 
using a combination of asp and asmx, meaning, I am 
using Javascript AND the web forms.  Why?  It made 
simple dialogs easier.  Is that some kind of heresy?
Maybe, but I find I quite like Javascript for light 
tasks doing mundane things like working with simple 
select/option dialogs.  I am probably missing 
the point because I am used to Javascript and accept 
it as a convenience.  My asmx pages with their 
combinations of HTML, web form controls, C# and Javascript 
would likely make an MS engineer chuck, but I'm 
not certified so I'm ok, and well, it works and 
the browser isn't complaining. Certifiable, maybe.
JavaScript isn't evil; it's just twisted.

The AJAX hype is in direct contrast to your above statement. I wasn't
making a value judgement about Javascript, I was pointing out that
developers have begun to sing its praises now that it is widely
supported in their favorite browsers and companies they look up to are
using it. This does nothing to change the numerous problems that have
been documented ad nauseum about the problems with building websites
primarily with Javascript for site navigation and interaction.
