New Web 2.0 Tools Powered by Currency Server 5
code (also known as ECMAScript or JScript) that not only
contains a programming interface (the Currency System Script
Library), but also embeds in the code file itself the
up-to-date currency properties required for operation. This
offers several advantages, because as long as the
Currency Server as part of regular currency data updates, no
further online accesses are required by clients at runtime,
cacheable, simpler, more compatible and less affected by network
latencies or errors. This approach offers Ajax benefits
without the traditional Ajax communications overhead (e.g.
to load external XML or JSON data) and browser requirements.
The code generated by Currency Server was designed to be
browsers released since 1997-1998 (Netscape Navigator 4,
Internet Explorer 4, and higher).
While we are working on a new generation of web tools
based on Currency Server 5 and the Currency System Script
Library, feel free to try out the
software and documentation, which has already been
released, and makes it possible for anyone to easily build
the same kind of client applications.
