Hi kumar,

Jesse James Garrett at Adaptive Path defined Ajax as follows:

Ajax isn't a technology. It's really several technologies, each flourishing in its own right, coming together in powerful new ways. Ajax incorporates:

1. Standards-based presentation using XHTML and CSS
2. Dynamic display and interaction using the Document Object Model
3. Asynchronous server communication using XMLHttpRequest
4. JavaScript binding everything together
