What is the question?  Do you need to have an example of AJAX so you can build upon it for your app?  Or have you got something that is giving you an error?

This code should do it
    <form>
      Your Name: <input type="text" name="name" value="fred" readonly/> <br/>
      File #1 <input type="file" name="file1" /> <br/>
      File #2 <input type="file" name="file2" /> <br/>
      <input type="submit" />
    </form>
    <div id="result"></div>

Open in new window

jQuery
$(function() {
  $('form').submit(function() {
    var formData = new FormData($(this)[0]);
    $.ajax({
      url: 'reflect.php',
      type: 'POST',
      data: formData,
      cache: false,
      contentType: false,
      processData: false
    }).then(function(data) {
      $('#result').html(data);
    });    
    return false;
  });
});

Open in new window

FormData gets all the data from a Form and makes it available for use in an AJAX request. You can read more about it here
https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/API/FormData
EDIT
This differs from the jQuery serialize() method which does not serialize file data. FormData will serialize any files included in the form.
