    Ajax request

    HI, I am a beginner in Ajax, so please excuse my ignorance.
    Could anyone explain the snippet of code below. Its part of a js page that uses a form on another page to register a new user. But how does it insert username, email and password into a database? Is there a file entitled 'registerNewUser' somewhere that inserts values into a database table?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Regards

    Lee

    Utils.Request({
    parameters: {
    action: 'registerNewUser',
    username: username,
    email: email,
    password: password
    },
    asynchronous: false,
    onSuccess: function(response) {
    $('signupButton').enable();

    JavaScript can not access the database on the server. It makes a request to some page/service on the server that handles the http request.
