    OO ajax requests in Prototype?

    In my app I wanted to make ajax requests object oriented to make the code better. When I encountered a problem I found a framework called Prototype. My question is: Is what I'm doing in the code below covered in Prototype? Is it about making ajax requests OO? I guess there are a lot of other things as well since it's a framework. If it is I will try to use it instead of making my own...

    I just need a short answer...

    var u = "http://localhost:8080/Appname/autoGetCities.do?city=b";
    var reqObj = new AjaxRequest(u);
    var r = reqObj.getRequest();
    function AjaxRequest(urlStr){
      var req; 
      var url = urlStr;
      this.initRequest = initRequest;
      this.getRequest = getRequest;
      function getRequest(){
        req = this.initRequest();
        req.open("GET", url, false);
        req.onreadystatechange = this.onreadystate;
        return req;
      function initRequest() { 
        if (window.XMLHttpRequest) {
          return new XMLHttpRequest();
        } else if (window.ActiveXObject) {
          return new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
