Summary

This chapter showed how to use Atlas from PHP, using the Microsoft Ajax framework from another server-side technology (and also from another operating system, if desired). The client-side components of Atlas can be easily used with other languages since it is all JavaScript (which is system-agnostic); the server-side components on the other hand have to be emulated. This emulation is of course language-agnostic, so the example in this book could have also been written in JSP, Perl, ColdFusion, even in classic ASP.

All you have to do is to write server-side code that generates the JavaScript proxy for the web service, and to write code that handles the autocomplete web service calls coming from the browser.
