Using Java for Developing Ajax-Enabled Web Applications

Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XMLHttpRequest) is a relatively new technology that allows client-side JavaScript to establish asynchronous socket communications with the web server. Ajax isn't a language; it's essentially a method of utilizing existing technologies: (a) JavaScript, (b) the HTML Document Object Model, and (c), the XMLHttpRequest object that has been supported by most browsers for the past few years. This presentation will introduce Ajax, and demonstrate how to use it along with some help from Java to enhance your own web pages.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
