VB.NET/client side and server side communication
Hello, Syed Rizwan Muhammad Rizvi
I want to build a system where the user will fetch data from
the server and display it in a browser, using html5.
I am using Visual Studio to write my client side code, but what technology should I use to communicate between client and server?
I was thinking about using Ajax, or html's data-binding, can you explain me what are the advantages and disadvantages of both and which one should I use?
This should help you decide: http://www.jsinsa.com/jsinsa/2012/content/knockout.pdf
I personally would prefer using HTML5 Databinding and let the browser manage all complexity rather worrying about data display myself. I personally think HTML5 bindings will be an Ajax killer.
Do check for browser compatibility though, many browsers support ajax but not all HTML5 features are supported by all browsers.
