XMLHTTP

Short for Extensible Markup Language Hypertext Transfer Protocol, a set of APIs that enables XML, HTML or binary data to be transmitted to and from Web servers over the Internet using HTTP. An advantage of XMLHTTP is that when files that are ASPs or CGI programs are queried from the server, the XMLHTTP object continuously queries the server transparently to retrieve the latest information without the user having to repeatedly refresh the browser. XMLHTTP enables streamed content through DHMTL rather than ActiveX controls or Java applets.
