tutorial #5: Construction, Ajax, & Interactivity


So far we have been focusing on both basic and advanced jQuery techniques. However, there is another form of jQuery called Ajax. Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax) can dynamically display and/or change content without altering the HTML structure or the user reloading the webpage. Moreover, Ajax can help simplify coding by keeping the construction cleaner.

The first demonstration is a basic online shopping cart that uses Client-Side Templating. The second demonstration is Hijax Links. When the user clicks on a hyperlink with Hijax Links, the user will see the external content being displayed on the current webpage. The third and final demonstration is an Online Profile that is produced by the use of Ajax and JSON.
