At the Forge - Incremental Form Submission
Web services are a wonderful way for servers to share data. But, when a Web service becomes a bottleneck, and when we lack control over the size of the bottleneck, we must try to find creative solutions. This month, we looked at something that I call incremental posting, designed to spread the burden over time, as a user is typing. Even if this solution isn't quite right for you, perhaps you'll be inspired in some way to incorporate this, or other Ajax techniques, into your own sites.
Programs this month were written in Ruby, a popular general-purpose programming language. You can read more about Ruby, and download or browse through the documentation, at ruby-lang.org.
