FJAX is a programming language for the implementation of asynchronous web applications. This functional language was developed at the University of Maryland, and facilitates server-generated content that can be updated without requiring page reloads. FJAX incorporates familiar web technologies including HTML, JavaScript and XML to create interactive interfaces with enhanced user experiences. Its syntax has been described as similar to OCaml in its handling of types and pattern matching capabilities, which aids in writing robust code that can handle complex asynchronous operations efficiently.
