I've learned sooo much from this site and everyone helping. I'm making lame attempts to help people now when i think i know the answer. Anyways, as i was about to upgrade my status from newb to amature, until i saw the word "AJAX" float around. I tried to Google it and got alot of hits like Adobe saying to use there FLEX program that builds on AJAX, and SAJAX (not sure who references that)...

But i can't find the difinititve definition of what "AJAX" is or how to use it. A recent post (poll) mentioned that it uses javascript?

While i demote myself back to newb status... can someone please "tell me"/"show me" what this AJAX is all about?

Edit:
i found this page: [a href=\"http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2EE/AJAX/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2EE/AJAX/[/a]
(wish i had found that before i made this post)

AJAX uses Javascript to make backend calls to a server side script and return the results to update the page without refreshing the page. It allows you to update content on the page without reloading all the surrounding information.
