AJAX Progrraming

Ajax, shorthand for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications. The intent is to make web pages feel more responsive by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes, so that the entire web page does not have to be reloaded each time the user requests a change. This is meant to increase the web page's interactivity, speed, and usability.

The Ajax technique uses a combination of:

  • XHTML (or HTML) and CSS, for marking up and styling information.
  • The DOM accessed with a client-side scripting language, especially JavaScript and JScript, to dynamically display and interact with the information presented.
  • The XMLHttpRequest object is used to exchange data asynchronously with the web server. In some Ajax frameworks and in certain situations, an IFrame object is used instead of the XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data with the web server, and in other implementations, dynamically added tags may be used.
  • XML is sometimes used as the format for transferring data between the server and client, although any format will work, including preformatted HTML, plain text, JSON and even EBML. These files may be created dynamically by some form of server-side scripting.

Sitecore - Moving items from web to master

In most of the cases, generally you create items in master database and publish to web/production data. However, sometimes few items are in web database and not in master. Reason can be anything, like you might have deleted it in master but did not publish the parent item or due to some other reason.

If you are thinking, you will create package from web and deploy it in master, that will not work. :-) When you create package from master, it installs the items in master only and same is the case with web.

Right and easy way to do is Transfer the item. Yes, you read it right. There is a provision in Sitecore to transfer the items from one database to another.

Select the item which you want to transfer from one database to another. Right click on it and then select Copying. Click on Transfer. see screenshot



Once you click on Transfer, it opens up a popup box. Click 'Next'. see screenshot

After clicking on next, you have to choose the database where you would like to transfer the…
