Creating AJAX functionality needs JavaScript?


Hello Karla.

AJAX is an acronym for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It is a group of technologies for accessing the server from the background (i. e., asynchronously) so that it does not interfere with page loading. With AJAX, it is possible to load certain parts of a web page resulting to significant performance improvements. The technologies that a web developer must know prior to learning AJAX are HTML / XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript / DOM. Since JavaScript is an integral part of AJAX, you really have to learn it first before you can do AJAX.

Here is a good place to get you started on learning all about AJAX:

Hope this helps!
