please enlighten me

Posted on March 29 2004 by Albert Ip in reponse to Cross-domain is a non-issue

I don't understand how cross-domain scripting is a non issue.

SCORM interoperability depends on all SCO be developed to us the same mechanism in order to communicate with the LMS. The mechanism is to use Javascript API provided by the LMS. When content and LMS are from two different domains, the browser sandbox will block.... [my old thinking..] I would be enlightened if you can show me how to overcome this.

BTW, I have done some work in this area (see the second paper "Single Instance Reuse of Sharable Content Objects" at and this work has been referenced by ADL in their discussion paper.
