They are not competing technologies. I use Ajax to great advatnage in all my J2EE projects. Remember, Ajax is a client-side technology, while servlets and JSP are server-side. They work well together.

The book's focus is on AJAX as a technology and I'm confident that it can introduce you to the world of AJAX showing you some real world examples.

You can take a look at the free downloadable chapters from the book to make a first impression about what you can expect from this book http://ajaxphp.packtpub.com/

The programming language chosen for this book is PHP but you can easily migrate the examples to Java(Servlets/JSP).

After you understand AJAX, the language used for the server side is completely your choice. I recommand PHP as it is very easy to start AJAX with PHP.
