Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) with Java 2 Enterprise Edition

AJAX uses JavaScript in an HTML page to make asynchronous calls to the server from which the page loaded and fetch an XML document from a server-side component asynchronously. Upon completion of a request JavaScript may update or modify the Document Object Model (DOM) of the HTML page based on the resulting XML document. Only the affected portions of the HTML DOM are are re-rendered in the HTML page. The term Asynchronous JavaScript and XML has emerged recently to describe this interaction model.
