    Arrow What is Ajax

    Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX): it describes a new type of Web page design for the updating of certain data of a page without reloading the total of this page.

    This design method based on combining existing technologies: HTML / CSS, Javascript / DOM, XML and HTTP requests.

    For example, we can make LiveSearch (Live Search). That is to say, at the same time as you type keywords for search, one sees the results or suggestions list (without having to reload a page). It is just one example, the applications of this type of design of a website are innumerable and mostly yet to be invented...

    Among the applications using AJAX include Gmail, Windows Live...

    Specifically, a Javascript object (XMLHttpRequest object) can send an HTTP request (POST, GET ...) to the server and retrieve the result. The direct consequence is that one can overcome the reloading of a page to retrieve information from the server.

    Today, all modern browsers allow you to use AJAX (Internet Explorer versions 5 and higher, Mozilla Firefox ...).

    AJAX = Asynchronous JavaScript and XML.

    AJAX is not a new programming language, but a new way to use existing standards.

    AJAX is the art of exchanging data with a server, and update parts of a web page - without reloading the whole page.

    Hi..AJAX is defined as “Asynchronous JavaScript and XML”.
    • Ajax isn’t something that you can download
    • It is not a technology, not a product, not a language
    • It’s an approach — a way of thinking about the architecture of web applications using certain technologies.
    • Ajax is a set of technologies being used together in a particular way.


    • Asynchronous: The client program communicates with the server asynchronously; that is, it talks to the server when it needs to read or write data, and it doesn't have to wait for the user to click on a link to do it.
    • JavaScript: The client program isn't content-specified through markup. It's a program written in a client-side language such as JavaScript.
    • XML: The client and the server communicate through some kind of structured protocol, such as XML.

    Hello!the most popular email gmail is also based on Ajax.gmail users may note that it comes on screen a bit slower than other mails like yahoo.but once it comes in further actions are quite fast.the initial delay is due to the reason that it uses Ajax.In other words if you dont have javascript on your PC you cant open attachments in Gmail.This is the usefulness of Ajax.

    I had thought Ajax was M$ version of Java Script for client side (ASP for server side, Ajax for Client). But it seems this is not the case. VS/M$ does not have an IDE for JS (unless I need to turn it on somewhere, or pick a different base project).

    The reason I bring this up is that I am getting more and more into web coding, and I am working on a project (still just on paper) that I want to have both a computer app and a "mobile" app. I have been using PHP and JS but I just feel more comfortable with M$ products yet.

    Since I have not done a mobile app yet (I have start reading Ged's how to's) I want to keep the pain on the brain low.

    AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. AJAX is a new technique for creating better, faster, and more interactive web applications with the help of XML, HTML, CSS and Java Script. Ajax uses XHTML for content and CSS for presentation, as well as the Document Object Model and JavaScript for dynamic content display.
