    Hello Guys

    Ajax known as Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. Ajax based web applications used to send data and retrieve from a server in the background without refreshing complete web page. When we send http request to server from client side using ajax call then server also responded to client with data or confirmation message.

    Here, we are sending JSON data from server side with http response to client.

    See below example to better understand :

    Create resource URL

    <portlet:resourceURL var="ajaxResourceURL" />

    Write ajax script

    <script type="text/javascript">
    function _callAjax(val1, val2){
        var url = '<%=ajaxResourceURL %>';    // pass resource URL you created using scriplet / EL.
        type : "POST",
        url : url,
        dataType: "json",
        data: {
          value1: val1,    // extra parameters if you want to pass
          value2: val2
        success : function(data){
            // do whatever you want with your response data
        error : function(XMLHttpRequest, textStatus, errorThrown){

    Create button in html

    <input type="button" onclick="_callAjax('val1', 'val2')" value="Send" /> 

    Create resource method in controller as below :

    public void serveResource(ResourceRequest request, ResourceResponse response) throws PortletException,IOException {
    String value1 = ParamUtil.getString(request , "value1", "default");    // request parameters
    String value2 = ParamUtil.getString(request , "value2", "");
    PrintWriter writer = response.getWriter();
    JSONObject jsonObject = new JSONObject();
    jsonObject.put(String key, boolean/long/Collection/double/Map/Object value);
