BUT in javascript any external connections like AJAX XMLHttpRequest() or the newer WebSocket( )  WILL NOT WORK in a browser, because the XMLHttpRequest() requests a connection to the ajax URL which does not exist in a "File System" environment. So to have ANY javascript with the XMLHttpRequest() you MUST get a windows operating system server "SET UP" to handle web connection request that are use in the XMLHttpRequest() operation.


i was reading as above.

any good end to end examples, links on this?(prefrably using java web servers like tomcat etc rather than .Net engines(actually either is fine)

please advise

Without knowing the context of this comment, I'd have to say it is utterly false. However, in the context of a localhost-only, non-internet, non-intranet situation, it might be true.

Where did you find this statement?

AJAX makes an HTTP connection to a web server to get a response.  The normal file system does not have a way to respond to an HTTP request so you can't use AJAX to open local files.  A web server is necessary but it can be Linux or even Mac OSX instead of Windows.
