Uses of Ajax

I haven't used ajax much but from what I read its uses seem pretty limited. The only benefit is that it saves you a full page refresh and thus the time associated with it. Am i missing something ?

"javabean",

The one thing you are missing is following the one rule we have here at the Ranch. We don't have many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. "javabean" is obviously not your real name, so it fails the policy test.

Do not underestimate the power of this seemingly minute detail. The ability make discrete requests back to the server without a page reload opens a world of possibilities.

P.S. Be aware that accounts within invalid display names are not eligible for the book promotion.

"Sona S", you have previously been warned regarding adjusting your display name to meet JavaRanch standards. This is not optional. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it prior to your next post.

Your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. Initials for a last name are not acceptable.

Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are removed.
