Re: My First Ajax App

I think (no benchmarking) that jsonrpc with jsolait is quicker then xmlrpc.

I was using it on project that fall through :(. To get results from a db and give them back to user.

approx size of db 10,000 and results where like 300. It could fetch them in less then 1 second, plus page do not have to be regened.

When I use xmlrpc it was slower 1.5 sec.

I have crappy virtual server.

I was thinking of making a debugger, with same idea, but the client browser would have to poll the server. (I do not think with javascript there is a way to send result to client, without client initiating the request).

I do not understand why in your case jsonrpc slow
