Using JQuery and Prototype in same application

Hello Friends,

While developing my project in Zend Framework, i came across a scenario whereย  it was needed to use both Prototype and Jquery in same application. Though it was seeming okay to use both in same application but my Firebug alarmed me with some Error messages. These error messages were about JQeury functions that were working fine before i addedd Prototype in my code.

After some Error tracking and Googling i found the solution so i am sharing with you ๐Ÿ™‚

Reason of problem: Both frameworks use $()-function declaration so it causes problems when both JQuery and Prototype are used in same application.

Solution of Problem: I solved this problem by using jQuery alias function jQuery()

Example Code:
Following was my code before problem fixation:

<script type=”text/JavaScript”>
$(“#msg”).val(“Hello world”);
return true;

I modifed to fix the problem:

<script type=”text/JavaScript”>
$(“#msg”).val(“Hello world”);
return true;

Thats It!

Though it was more then eassy but was new for me, hopefully be helpfull for you too ๐Ÿ™‚

    very usefull and simple stuff to use when prototype.js is linked after jquery.
    jQuery.noConflict works only if jquery is linked after prototype.js
