History of XMLHTTP-Alex Hopmann speaks

Today if you talk about AJAX then it means you are using xmlHTTP object. Though there are non-xmlHTTP methods as well to achieve same or I say better results.

Alex Hopmann, the father of xmlHTTP object who wrote this control as a part of Microsoft, shares his story with public. Alex writes:

That weekend I startup up Visual Studio and whipped up the first version of what would become XMLHTTP. The first verison didn't have async support hooked up and was pretty crude, but it was enough to help Jim and Bob talk to some of the WebDAV/XML support we had already built for Exchange 2000 and make some really rapid progress with their DHTML OWA implementation.
