Hi all.. AJAX is famous for its dynamic displaying feature(forgive me if the desc. aint right, i just wanted you all to get the point). I want to do a non-web based project which will implement this feature. I've read that AJAX can be used only for web applications. Is there is any method to implement this feature for a non web based application using Java, especially in Linux?

Yea, simply change what's being displayed.

It might help to know exactly what you want to do, but just so you know, "AJAX" essentially imitates for browser client actions what is essentially native to standalone applications, so don't start out by thinking about what you can do in AJAX (or any other language for that matter) or you are simply limiting yourself.

Think about what you want to do and then try implementing it.
