Synchronous requests deprecated

SaraBFeb 18 2015 — edited Apr 15 2015


I apologise if this has been raised elsewhere. I've searched the forum, the requested features and the release notes for APEX 5.0 and can see no mention of this. I've also tested in APEX 5.0.

Dynamic actions using the Wait For Result option to guarantee execution order use synchronous XMLHttpRequest. Synchronous XMLHttpRequest on the main thread is now deprecated and support will be removed from browsers at some point in the future:

Browsers are already issuing warnings about this: [Chrome] Synchronous XMLHttpRequest on the main thread is deprecated because of its detrimental effects to the end user's experience.

If browsers drop support for synchronous XMLHttpRequest before APEX stops using it APEX developers will face big problems.

How does the APEX team intend to handle this? Is this something that is being considered for APEX 5.0 or even an update to 4.x?

Many thanks
