    HTML5 with Dynamism in Web Applications

    Hi
    Could anybody could tell me what "dynamism in web applications" means to them? I'm trying to develop a web application for my 4th year thesis that will incorporate dynamism and interactivity. I was hoping to develop something using HTML5 and CSS3 with HTML5 APIs showcasing interactivity. But does HTML5 play any other major role in dynamism than the front end.
    When I think of dynamism I think of techniques such as AJAX & JSON and their implementation within a 3 tier client/server architecture but I'm not sure whether or not I'm missing something.

    Any help with this would be greatly received

    Thanx
    Ger

    Haven't got an answer here yet or in webdeveloper.com either, huh? I'll tell you why...there's a problem with your question. It's too intelligent for most forum users to even comprehend, while simultaneously being too vague and generalist in its nature for most people to provide a solid answer. It's a good question, but you're probably going to find limited responses as a result, since most people will be too scared to touch it with a 10-foot pole for fear of sounding stupid.

    Fortunately for you, I think I understand the question and I'm a masochistic bastard who doesn't mind sounding stupid once in a while, so I'll give it a shot. Dynamism to me simply means "content that changes". It can be through Javascript, it can be through server-side generation of dynamic content, or it can be some hybrid of the two (and this is where AJAX and to some extent JSON comes into play...more commonly the former). This forum is an example of dynamic content. You posted your question, and a page was generated on the fly containing your post. I post my answer to it, The page gets updated. Someone will post a reply in turn. The page is updated again. And so on and so on.

    HTML5 to me really doesn't enter the equation as such, although I suppose it could to a limited extent with CSS3 transformations and effects depending on one's interpretation of "dynamic" Something like these effects, for example. I've only just started playing with HTML5 this year, however, so there may be stuff it can do that I don't necessarily know about

    What I would suggest is to approach your thesis from a slightly different point of view. "Interactivity and dynamism" is too broad of a focus. Think of a simple application that you could build that utilizes those concepts, and then study the technologies you'd need to build it. For example, if you wanted to build an HTML5 game of chess, you'd look at something that would calculate the best move or strategy (server-side), something that would pass the move onto the board and animate it (likely Javascript, but possibly HTML5 could as well), and finally something to render the board (HTML5,+ CSS3).
