While surfing the web I found this article and thought that it might be of help to the readers of this site. I have taken a liking to AJAX and we have developed many sites and modules using it. This is a simple introduction that may be of use to you.
AJAX is about better Internet-applications
Internet-applications have many benefits over desktop applications; they can reach a larger audience, they are easier to install and support, and easier to develop. However, Internet-applications are not always as “rich” and user-friendly as traditional desktop applications and most Web applications are slow and tedious. In the traditional Web application, the interaction between the customer and the server goes like this:
1. Customer accesses Web application
2. Server processes request and sends data to the browser while the customer waits
3.Customer clicks on a link or interacts with the application
4.Server processes request and sends data back to the browser
while the customer waits
5. etc…. There is a lot of customer waiting. It’s a model adapted from the Web’s original use as a hypertext medium.
How Ajax is Different
Ajax Acts as an Intermediary
