Display Dot Net web application without using IFrame

We would like to display web application forms that have been developed in C# in confluence pages. We can do it using IFrames but we are limited in what functionality we use. Are there any plugins that would allow us to do this?

You could use AJAX to communicate with a C# .NET web app. Confluence has jQuery included, so it's pretty easy to use JSONP with it. I've done this is a number of places with our install.

Hi David,

I am not familiar with JSONP. Do you have an example of this?

Thanks,

Paul

JSONP is used for getting around the same origin policy with xml http requests. It's built into jQuery, whic is included with Confluence. Basically, jquery will generate a callback function on-the-fly and pass the function name in a querystring parameter called callback. Your webservice just needs to take what is passed in callback and wrap your JSON with it. So, if callback in the querystring was foo. Then your JSON returned by the webservice should look like this ...

foo(JSON);

jQuery will then be able to execute the callback function. Inessence JSONP doesn't actually do xml-http reqwuests. What it realy does is create script elements on the fly and then the data in the script element gets executed immediatly.
