Terms and definitions in messaging

Multichannel messaging service is based on a variety of telecommunication and Internet technologies. In the description of services, we often use abbreviations that may not always be known to you. Here we have compiled a glossary of terms and definitions used in the industry.

AJAX

This programming term is short for “asynchronous JavaScript and XML.” It allows multiple Web applications to send and retrieve data from a server in the background without interfering with the current display of the page (i.e. without having to reload). AJAX is not its own programming language but a way of using existing languages (HTML, XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript) together.
