Google Maps! AJAX-Style Web Development Using ASP.NET

Taking asynchronous Web forms to the next level

The most recent announcement from Microsoft about the Atlas Project promises to address some of these difficulties. It is an attempt to greatly simplify AJAX-style development by providing, over time, a Javascript framework that includes (note - the following is based on a preliminary announcement from Microsoft and is subject to change): UI Toolkit - commonly used controls with support for features such as drag and drop and databinding; SOAP stack for invoking Web services; browser compatibility layer that hides the differences between browser types; and client building blocks such as local cache. Further, the ASP.NET team plans to make some of the building blocks for ASP.NET such as profiles, membership, etc. available as Web service endpoints, to make them accessible from Javascript directly. For example, personalization information can be easily accessible on the client. Finally, the Atlas project plans to extend the Javascript syntax to include interfaces, lifetime management, and multicast events.

The next few months promise to be very exciting for those interested in building AJAX-style Web applications. I hope this article has peaked your interest in AJAX enough for you to consider it for the next Web application you build.

The title of the article is misleading. I see no mention of Google Maps in the content of the article in regards to ASP.NET.

I applaud the editors for coming up with such innovatively misleading bait to entice them to read the entire article, and all the embedded ads. Bravo!

In the past few months, the design pattern of combining Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) to develop highly interactive Web applications has been growing in popularity. High-profile Web applications such as Google Maps and A9 are currently leveraging the combination of these technologies to produce rich client-side user experiences. The individual technologies that compose AJAX are not recent developments; they have been around for some time and have been continuously updated and improved. However, it is the recent confluence of these technologies that is leading to interesting possibilities.

I am interested in Geo fencing...would any of the above technologies enable the development of a Google map which has geo fencing capabilities?

Thanks for any input,

The AJAX.NET URL is not correct.

I believe what you are looking for is:
http://ajax.schwarz-interactive.de/csharpsample/default.aspx

This library works in ASP.NET 1.1 as well.
