Abstract

Ajax is a term coined by Jesse James Garrett of Adaptive Path to describe the asynchronous client-to-server communication that is made possible using the XMLHttpRequest object, which is provided by all modern browsers. An acronym for A synchronous JavaScript and XML, Ajax has evolved into a term used to encapsulate the techniques necessary to create a dynamic web application. Additionally, the individual components of the Ajax technique are completely interchangeable—using JSON instead of XML (for example) is perfectly valid.
