This issue occurs on "Overview of Ajax" page at http://docs.oracle.com/javaee/6/tutorial/doc/gkigr.html. The second paragraph describes JavaScript as object oriented. JavaScript does have objects, but it is prototype oriented. It does not have object oriented features like inheritance. Objects inherit from objects set as their prototype. There are no classes.

Thank you again for catching this error in terminology.

Checked in fix that removes the claim that Ajax is object-oriented.
