What Is Jquery AJAX

Hey, coders, today I continued with learning about jquery, but this time I practiced with using AJAX. 

AJAX = Asynchronous JavaScript And XML. 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. Because of how powerful jquery is with changing the DOM and creating events AJAX allows this to happen on the world wide web. 

I practiced using GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE, which are the most common scenarios of using AJAX. In short here is what each function does.

  • GET: retrieve resources
  • POST: create resources
  • PUT: update resources
  • DELETE: delete resources
