AJAX - Javascript on Steroids

Today I experimented with AJAX embedded in PHP.

After working with Javascript for the past decade, I was surprised to see the simalarities.  The power behind  Javascript is the code can run on the client which allows for field validation.  Now you can have Javascript reference the AJAX calls from the Client to the Server.  You can basically update portions of your web page without having to make a full round trip back to the server.

This concept is quite amazing!  And it runs in PHP, .net, JSP, Cold Fusion.

Good stuff.
