Subject Re: [v2] AJAX in views?
Date Fri, 21 Oct 2005 09:22:23 GMT

http://svn.apache.org/viewcvs?rev=327135&view=rev

"Added a new class of contracts 'hellper-...' this contracts offering
helper classesbut not adding any functionality nor content directly to
the page. Added prototype.js which is a jscript framework offering not
only ajax support."
