Hi,

I'm a graduate student at the end of my curriculum, and looking to start my career as a java developer. I wanted to know about my chances best for web development.
I have to either choose javascript or AJAX for web development, and was wondering if someone could guide me about learning which would be better, to be used for web design and development.

Thanks in advance.

Let's move this topic to the html and javascript forum.... I'll let someone else explain the difference between Javascript and Ajax -- or more correctly, how those two are related.

Ajax is JavaScript so there is no choice.

It is like saying Omelet or an Egg for breakfast.

Thanks guys.. I will start studying Javascript and play around with it. I found out that Ajax just makes javascript code more dynamic, as in parts of webpages updated in background. But javascript is still needed to make the whole page do what it does in a website. Hopefully.. i am right..

Ajax doesn't make JavaScript code more dynamic, it makes the UI more user friendly (assuming it is done right).
If you are considering web development then JavaScript + Ajax isn't sufficient.
You have to pick a platform like Ruby, Python, PHP, Java, etc ...
JavaScript and Ajax are just are just actors in big play.
