This section is going to be replaced by data as you click on the demo links.
The first link fetches an HTML table (from a Delphi WebBroker app), the second and third fecth an XML ClientDataSet that is further processed in the browser with Google's XSLT engine. More info in the demo documentation, which will become avaialble soon. For now you can have a look at the session slides here. You can also download the program code and the ajaxmd.com demo site in an earlier versions than those on display here.
The key feature is the master/details display (the last link): here the master data is fetched once, while the details are accessed one by one on request, producing an efficient web site with a nice UI.
