Nothing without  AJAX! jQuery offers a powerful package of  AJAX possibilities.
Main method for connection with AJAX. Parameters that forward can be:
  The from where the request is sent. If you want a cross-domain request (request sent to a different domain), you have to enable that with  crossDomain parameters.
It is used for sending requests on pages that are on different domains, using JSONPs request. Options are true and  false.
Represents the type of data transfer (the same as in the HTML form). Can be GET and POST
Data that is passed to a given page. So basically, it is like you sending some data via HTML forms from some input element. Example: name = Peter & Year = 1980
Determines the type of returned data.Supports: jsonxmlscript and html
Will the request be executed  synchronously or asynchronously. Possible options are true and false.
With this parameter you forward some function that will be executed after the AJAX request is finished.
Calls a certain function if there is an error in the request.
Time of  delay from the start of the execution of the request in milliseconds.
Executing given functions on certain HTTP conditions. For example, if the return status is 404 (the page doesn’t exist), a certain function is executed.
User name that will be forwarded in the case of  HTTP authentication.
The password that will be forwarded in the case of  HTTP authentication.
1 /*as it is mentioned above, 
2 it doesn’t matter if you are using $ or  jQuery object */
4  $.ajax({  
5     url: "test.html",
6     data: "ID=182&location=Chicago",
7     type: "GET",
8     async: false,
9     statusCode: {404: function() {
10         alert('Page is not found');
11     },
12     error: function() {
13         alert("error");
14     },
15     success: function(){
16         $(this).addClass("done");
17     }
18 });

Loads the information from the server using  HTTP GET request  (shortened and purpose-specific version of jQuery.ajax () method). Accepts  4 parameters: url to the
page (mandatory), the info that is being sent with the request  (data),function for execution after the ajax request, and the dataType that defines how will the returned info look like.
1 $.get("test.php");
3 $.get("test.php", { name: "Peter", age: "26" } );
5 $.get(
6     "test.php",
7     { name: "Peter", age: "26" },
8     function(){ alert('Over')},
9     "json"
10 );

Same as  jQuery.get() method,but the type of request demands  HTTP POST
Same as  jQuery.ajax() method that would return  JSON type of data. The parameters are: urldata and function for calling after the request is executed.
1 $.getJSON("test.php",
2     {name:"Peter"},
3     function() {
4         //code for execution
5     }
6 );
Loads the script from the server and executes it. The parameters are: url and callback function
1 $.getScript('ajax/test.js', function() {
2     alert('Script is loaded.');
3 });
Loads information from the server and places them in a certain element. The parameters are: urldata and callback function
1 $('#my-div').load("page.html",
2     function() {
3         //code for execution after finishing
4     }
5 );
Very useful function. Reads data from HTML form.
1 function takeData() {
2     return $('#my-forma').serialize();
3 }
5 $('#button).click(
6     function(){
7         var data = takeData ();
8         alert(data);
9     }
10 );

The example will execute the takeData() function on the click of a button, that by the help of .serialize() loads the values from all elements in a form  (inputselecttextarea), and
places them in the variable  data. Then, those data will show up on the screen. The returned data will look like this, for example :name=Peter & surename=Willson & married=no...
