Ajax survey 2009: jQuery and MS Ajax are almost tied among .NET developers

Almost one month ago I created a survey in order to try and understand how .NET developers are using Ajax. And also to compare it with the results I collected at the end of 2007. I left the survey running a few weeks and once I received around 2500 responses I closed it: but without further ado let’s have a look at the results, and later I’ll do a more in depth analysis of the data collected. The results The most used Ajax/JS library among .NET developers is jQuery, which is used by the 71,4% of...

Survey on Ajax adoption: some quick stats

UPDATE: The survey is closed. The results are published: Ajax survey 2009: jQuery and MS Ajax are almost tied. After 3 days and a half, with a weekend and a public holiday in between, the survey about Ajax adoption among .NET developers already received 1047 responses. Here some quick stats: an incredible (in my eyes) 5% claims he is not doing Ajax development at all; the most used web frameworks is pretty obviously WebForms (89%) followed by ASP.NET MVC (38%); the most used JavaScript library is jQuery...

Beware the $(...) in jQuery: $("#elementId") != document.getElementById("elementId")

Lately I've been playing a bit with jQuery, one of the raising javascript frameworks and I found out something I was not expecting to find. But let's step back a bit: in jQuery the dollar sign function $ is a shortcut for the main function of the framework which is used to select html elements in the page. This $ method accepts a css-like selector as argument, so if you want to select a specific element by its id you have to use the hash: $("#myElementId") returns a reference to the DOM element boosted by jQuery. We can say it's...

.NET Ajax Survey results

A few days ago Ajaxian published the results of a survey about the usage of Ajax among web developers, but since it was too generic for my taste I decided to make one targeted only to .NET developers.I got a bit more than 1000 responses in less that 2 days, and since the results were starting to stabilize (and the response rate was very low compared to the 50 responses per hour of the first day), this morning I decided to close the survey and then analyze the data and publish the results. The results But let's have...

ASP.NET Ajax usage floats around 35%

UPDATE: I setup a survey focused only on .NET development here. Ajaxian, blog focused on everything related to Ajax development and JS libraries, last week announced a survey about the state of Ajax usage among developers and in the enterprise. The questions were simple: Are you currently using Ajax? Which programming language/web framework are you using Ajax in conjunction with? Which Ajax toolkit, framework or JS library are you using? Yesterday they published the results of the survey, which has been answered by 2618...

UseHttpGet needs you to enable HttpGet in the web.config

If you want to access a web service from an ASP.NET Ajax page or from a Silverlight 2.0 app, you have to decorate it with the ScriptService attribute. This will enable the creation of a JavaScript proxy to call the web service using the JSON notation. The generated proxy will call the web service using the HTTP POST method. But what if you want to use the GET method? There is another attribute that you can specify to fine tune the response of a single method: ScriptMethod. Among the possible tuning, you can specify that you want to use GET...
