Introduction to ASP.NET Ajax

This entry is part 1 of 13 in the series ASP.NET Ajax

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, it is a mechanism to interact with server using XMLHttpRequest object in JavaScript.

ASP.NET Ajax is the .NET version of Ajax implementation especially for ASP.NET applications. ASP.NET Ajax enables us to send partial post back request and receive response that helps the application runs faster and become more responsive.

The partial post back means that if we need to update a certain part of the entire page, we send only partial requests (data that is needed to get the response for that part) and get the response only to update that specific part of the page as against the entire page.
