Rename Dojo namespace


This sample shows how to rename the dojo namespaces (dojo,dijit,dojox) to avoid conflicts. This technique is useful when you need to include more than one version of dojo in the same page, for example perhaps you want to take advantage of features in a different version of dojo than the one included with the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API.

      // Dojo library from the Google Hosted Libraries is built in such a way that
      // it depends on the dojoConfig global object when loading modules. 
      // But we override it later when loading the JSAPI.
      // Reset it here so that modules from the Google Hosted Libraries are loaded
      // properly. 
      // For example: after the page loads, try loading the following
      // module:
      // dojo.require("dijit.layout.ContentPane");
      // and observe firebug net tab. You should see bunch of modules
      // loaded from the Google Hosted Libraries. Without the reset below, the first module
      // loaded will be from the Google Hosted Libraries and its dependencies loaded from 
      // the dojo instance embedded within JSAPI.
