You will create an application first in Ajax, then in Sajax to show the benefits of usingthis tool kit. The application is a section of a previously written tutorial with sectionlinks. It will be used as an example to show you the advantages of using Ajax.Because as you click through the sections, they load asynchronously without havingto wait for the rest of the page to load again. This sample application will also serveas an example to show you how to create your own Ajax applications.
In this tutorial, the author uses the creation of a developerWorks Webpage as an illustration of Sajax's capabilities, not as a preview for any capabilityplanned for developerWorks. If you are writing a developerWorks tutorial, pleasefollow the author guidelines discussed in another article (seeResources).
Say you want to create an Ajax application without having to worry about theintricate details of Ajax. Sajax is the answer.

However,the technical details of Ajax can be ignored through the use of higher-level functionsprovided in the Sajax library.
