- Before that comes the page-generation logic that happens on the server side.
- Preceding both these phases is the generation of the static content (the "quoted" part of an ASP or JSP page).
But now reconsider the above assumption. Real web applications involve multiple round trips, and Ajax is popularizing the further complication of allowing semi-secret (let's never forget the back button, though!) round trips to occur within hidden frames. How does this cycle between the server and client sides change the multi-stage architecture?
