Five Ajax Anti Patterns

Catching up on the Ajaxian Blog I found a post covering Jack D Herrington’s article on 5 Ajax anti patterns. The article covers 5 pitfalls of coding Ajax and reasons to avoid or at the very leats think carefully before implementing.

It’s a very well written article (IMHO) and worth a read.

Topics covered include:

  • Invalid use of timers.
  • Not inspecting return results in the callback.
  • Passing Complex XML when HTML would be better.
  • Passing XML when you should pass JavaScript Code.
  • Doing too much on the server.
