Denis Sureau:

The ping example seems not the best example of what a POST request usually is.
I suggest a more useful request as following, instead:

var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.onreadystatechange=function()
{
if(xhr.readyState == 4)
{
alert("sent " + data);
}
};

xhr.open("POST", "test.php", true);
xhr.setRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");
xhr.send("data=" + data);

Diego La Monica:
What you write is completelly right Mr. Sureau, but in example 2 of
paragraph 1.1 the working draft cites exactly:
***
If you just want to ping the server with a message you could do something like:

function ping(message) {
 var client = new XMLHttpRequest();
 client.open("POST", "/ping");
 client.send(message);
}
***
The above script is intended ( I suppose) as a System command but
maybe i'm in wrong and is a simple POST message that does not wait for
a respnse. In this case the word ping is not the right one is better
(IMHO): "If you just  want to make stay-up request to the server you
could do something like: .... ".

Dont you think so?
