General J2EE: Ajax returning java object
Is it possible that ajax call returns an object from the server side resource? If yes, Can anyone give an example? Thanks in advance, Subhash

Ajax can return text/html. On the other hand, you may receive the java object in XML format. For instance: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 1257731352722 The Jt framework provide Jt/Ajax components to do this: http://freedom.lunarpages.com/Jt/Jt.htm
Ajax can return text/XML. Sorry. This is what I meant to say. There are several XML/Bean conversion tools/APIs/libaries. The Jt component is self-contained. It can be easily integrated with any Java application. It takes a couple of lines do the Bean/XML conversion.
You can either use xml based model or JSON based, I personally favor the JSON as it is used in many of the AJAX based apps, also it is much closer to what you need. Hope it helps.
