Java is unrelated to AJAX - the J in AJAX stands for Javascript, which is a completely different language to Java (they are in no way related except for the first 4 letters of their name).

I'd suggest going to w3schools.com and reading their javascript and DHTML (i.e. HTML + javascript) tutorials.

AJAX isn't a language, but a technique that you can employ within javascript to update a HTML page without reloading the entire thing.

Once you're comfortable with HTML+javascript, then you're ready to download prototype, which will make AJAX dead simple to add in to your web pages.

On top of learning javascript (and how it applies to DHTML), you'll also want to learn a server side language to get the full benefit of AJAX. PHP would probably be the fastest and easiest to get set up, but there is also ASP, ASP.NET, JSP, Java Servlets, Perl, and any number of other server side techniques you can employ with AJAX.
