I am completely new to programming the browser based front-end though I've written many traditional GUI applications.
Being a server-side Java engineer, I'd like to learn - using a tutorial - how to write Ajax code for (say) BEA WebLogic application server. I looked at BEA's website and couldn't find a tutorial-like section that gives me a step-by-step introduction to Ajax coding with their app server. Hence I am looking for a website that could help me build a simple "Hello World" style form with Ajax that takes (say) the name of a person as a String from the user, passes it to the back-end that returns the reversed name back to the browser.
Any pointers on this will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
