Web developer can use the Application object to execute some code when the page is loaded in ASP.NET Ajax. In jQuery, Web developer can write a method and then pass it to the $ method:

C# 8.0 and .NET Core 3.0 – Modern Cross-Platform Development: Build applications with C#, .NET Core, Entity Framework Core, ASP.NET Core, and ML.NET using Visual Studio Code, 4th Edition
ASP.NET Core 3 and Angular 9: Full stack web development with .NET Core 3.1 and Angular 9, 3rd Edition
C# in Depth, 4th Edition

$( func() {
alert (“Page loaded”);

Web developer can put any logic inside the method. By using jQuery Web developer gets the same result with less code than ASP.NET Ajax.
