Dojo Goodness, Part 5 (Simple Network I/O)

by Matthew Russell

The last column introduced some of Dojo's AJAX machinery where we fetched content from a server using the dojo.xhrGet function. One thing that wasn't mentioned, however, is that there is an underlying abstraction called a Deferred at play. Since the entire Dojo I/O subsystem uses this abstraction, it's important to understand exactly what it buys you.

Thanks Matthew for your column, it is easy to read and follow. It would be nice if you could show an example of using the Grid widget that gets its data from a servlet.
