The beauty with AJAX is that you don't need any additional components 
server-side. You send the client a HTML page with JavaScript and the 
client does (harder) asynchronous JavaScript part by sending you 
requests for URLs to which you answer with HTML snippets.

All the web-server/ethernut needs to do is respond to the requests from 
the client (which is more-or-less the only thing a web-server does anyway.)
