This tutorial shows how to check username availability using Servlet, AJAX and MySQL. So after finishing this example you will be able to apply the same logic to any Servlet based web framework or any server side technologies such as PHP, Codeigniter etc. Continue reading “Username availability check using Servlet, AJAX and MySQL”
