How to resolve conflicts between prototype and jQuery?


To resolve a conflict between jQuery and prototype,
is there any way other than asking jQuery to resolve via


and using jQuery instead of $('code').code;

Cant we ask prototype $ to step down and resolve.

PrototypeJS adds a bit more to the global JavaScript namespace than jQuery does. For example, it adds meanings for: Ajax, $, $$, $F, Abstract, Form, $A, $H, $R, $w. You can look at a complete list of classes and utilities at

So the advice you've gotten is correct, There's no simple equivalent to jQuery.noConflict() for PrototypeJS.
