I have few blog posts regarding working with Ajax on Magento.  And I see many people visiting those pages to get the information on working with Ajax in Magento. Sensing the need of developer I came up with an idea of making the whole process into a module in an effort to give back to the Magento community. I’ve tried to make the module simple for now, which of course can be extended a lot to incorporate all kinds of needs. But for now, if I may say, there are roughly these two things you might want to do (Purely in Magento terms).

  2. Next, perform all the actions as #1 and in addition to that refresh the content of certain HTML elements.

All you have to do is set the settings of your external database connection in your Magento Settings and extend your model/collection class with the class of this module and use other codes as you have been using in Magento to select/update/delete records.
