Hi all,
at present i am working on a web project where the request is send from java script using http and the sample code is as following

var request_o; 
var browser = navigator.appName; //find the browser name
if(browser == "Microsoft Internet Explorer")
	/* Create the object using MSIE's method */
	request_o = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
	/* Create the object using other browser's method */
	request_o = new XMLHttpRequest();
return request_o; //return the object
http.onreadystatechange = getAjaxResponse;
boal = "";

if we want any new methods to be implemented we are using webservices to call the methods

i need to know which gives the better performance is the old http or the webservices

thanks in advance

Hi a.pkumar, this is a tricky one as always it depends on what you are sending and receiving. You could try using a tool like 'Fiddler' and see the total ms for both approaches. Personally the web service route is cleaner. Have you considered MVC as a solution instead of separate web services?

Yahoo also offers a page perfomance YSlow which would also show you some numbers. FireBug also shows request / response times.

Hope this helps a bit...
