JavaRanch Journal - January 2006 Volume 5 Issue 1: "Ajax: A New Approach to Web Applications
by Eric Pascarello

The buzz that has been swarming the Internet is the term Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML). To my surprise, many developers still are not sure what this Ajax thing is. Hopefully I can educate those Ranchers that are still in the dark about this hot topic in the world of programming. Why is this Ajax thing so hot? Well the magic of it all is it spans every server side language out there. A PHP developer, a Java developer, and a .NET developer can all use this! This Ajax technology is not server side language specific so that is why there is great 'hype.' I can personally say that Ajax is not just hype. Judging by the responses I have gotten from here on the JavaRanch or out on my talks promoting Ajax in Action, it looks like Ajax is not going away, as some old timer programmers are wishing! I use it in production, and it's part of many applications that you may use on a daily basis.

It may be a surprise to some, but Ajax has been around for a long time; it's just that no one put a cleaning name to it until of late. And yes, Microsoft did implement it and others copied it (others copy Microsoft?) I am glad they did so this could take off. Ajax is supported by all of the major Web browsers now available.
