Using XML Data with the Spry Framework for Ajax in Dreamweaver CS3It's not as hard--or as boring--as it may sound
Regardless of what you may specifically think of the CS3 iteration of the venerable Dreamweaver visual Web editor, even the most hardened skeptics would probably be forced to (grudgingly) agree that the integration of Adobe's Spry framework for Ajax into Dreamweaver CS3 is, to put it very technically, pretty freaking cool.
Now, we've all heard about Web 2.0 this and Web 2.0 that, but the technology at the heart of the movement/craze/fad/whatever?Ajax?is quite difficult to get started with if you happen to fall on the designer end of the Web creation spectrum. But never fear: DWCS3 is here to help. In this screencast, we're going to take some XML data, import it into a HTML-based page, and have Dreamweaver work its Spry magic to go all Ajax-like on our data set. Ohhhh yeah...
So, without further ado, here's a handy QuickTime to walk you through the process. Enjoy!
