That's the whole point of Seam remoting, it abstracts away the underlying AJAX mechanics so that you can just work with your server side business methods and the values they return.
2 - detect if its seam, take that string thats returned and convert it to an xmlhttprequest object. but im not sure thats possible yet.
That won't work, the
stringthat's returned is the result of your method invocation. Can you explain why you need the XMLHttpRequest object? Perhaps I can then suggest a solution.
