What is XMLHTTP

XMLHTTP is Extensible Markup Language Hypertext Transfer Protocol. It is a set ofAPIs that enables XML, HTML or binary data to be transmitted to and fromWeb servers over the Internet using HTTP.
An advantage of XMLHTTP is that when files that are User Interface programs (e.g. JSPs, ASPs or CGI programs) are queried from the server, theXMLHTTP object continuously queries the server transparently to retrievethe latest information without the user having to repeatedly refresh thebrowser. XMLHTTP enables streamed content through DHMTL rather than ActiveXcontrols or Java applets.
