    "send it back to the client asynchronously"…

    I don’t really understand this statement and it is something I hear a lot when people talk about AJAX. As far as I know request and response via http is a synchronous operation and a web server can never send a response that is not initiated by a client request.

    A proxy object on the client that initiates a request can route the responses appropriately, but that’s as far as my imagination can take me.

    Hi Ashley,

    The XmlHttpRequest implemented in all of the major browsers has the ability to make a call over HTTP asynchronously.  Asynchronous is the "A" in AJAX.  The confusing part may be the use of the XmlHttpRequest object.

    The browser may have changed but the web server and http never did. The XmlHttpRequest object may be able to be called asynchronously by your script but it still uses http synchronously. The XmlHttpRequest object is still waiting on the response from the web server to the request it issued on behalf of your script and your UI is continuing on with its own business.
