AJAX has proven itself useful in a variety of web applications. In this three-part article series, you will learn how to use AJAX to display commercial banners dynamically on your web site. This first article will show you how to develop the basic script.
Creating a Dynamic Banner System with AJAX (Page 1 of 5 )
The reason behind this stage in the development of AJAX-based applications is clear. Any web developer with an average background in the principal methods and properties exposed by the so-called HTTP requester objects can build all sorts of clever programs. This fact undoubtedly contributes to an even greater expansion of the creation of client-side scripts that fetch different server files in the background.
Does this mean that the terrain of AJAX has already reached its limit? Absolutely not! This series of articles is intended to demonstrate humbly the veracity of this concept by walking you through the process of building a dynamic banner system. The system will be easy to customize, so it can be incorporated into any existing or future web site.
However, let me take some time to explain to you more clearly how this banner mechanism is going to work. This will give you a better idea of the functionality that will be provided by the application that I plan to build in the next few lines.
Hopefully, this AJAX-driven banner mechanism will be useful to you and other readers, particularly if you're considering the development of a web site that will be entirely supported by commercial ads.
Therefore, I believe it's time to leap forward and learn together how to create a truly dynamic banner system with AJAX. Let's begin this educational journey now!
