What is JQuery?

What is AJAX?
AJAX is not a programming language. AJAX just uses a combination of:
- A browser built-in XMLHttpRequest object (to request data from a web server)
AJAX allows web pages to be updated asynchronously by exchanging data with a web server behind the scenes. This means that it is possible to update parts of a web page, without reloading the whole page.
- Cross-browser support
- Simple methods to use
- Ability to send GET and POST requests
- Ability to Load JSON, XML, HTML or Scripts
- Schema Support
- Server Parsing
- Tool for sharing data
- Detect and respond to user actions.
- Alter, show, hide and move objects on a web page.
- Check information inputted into a form.
- jQuery also simplifies complicated tasks like AJAX calls and DOM manipulation.
- jQuery will run exactly the same and produce same output in all major browsers.
- jQuery is free and very easy to include in your projects: just download its latest version from the jQuery website, or use an online Content Delivery Network.
- jQuery is continuously upgraded, maintained and documented by a dedicated community of great developers. This ensures high quality and support on the internet.
