I have often seen the term “AJAX” in connection with web-development. I think it looks fairly intimidating (but perhaps it just reminds you of a cleaning product!)
Well, if it’s so simple, why is it so powerful? Well this is what I’ve found out so far:
- You can get the XML file “asynchronously”, without reloading the page
- The XML file can represent anything you like, and can be generated by any method you like! You can use a static XML file or use PHP, ASP, etc.
But I’m obviously not an expert. So go check it out at: http://www.w3schools.com/ajax/default.asp
I can’t say whether the w3schools people are experts, but they certainly have the best web-development tutorials and references I’ve ever seen. Enjoy!
