Is Ajax a new combination of technologies, or the same old stuff web developers have been using for years? Both, actually. Ajax builds on older technologies and techniques but reaches a tipping point where the results are new.Ajax: The Definitive Guidegives you a leg up on this new stage of web development by teaching you how tried-and-true web standards -- like JavaScript, XML, CSS, DOM, and XHTML -- not only make Ajax possible, but why developing with them is faster, easier and cheaper. Ajax: The Definitive Guidedemonstrates how to build browser-based applications that function like desktop programs, using sophisticated server-aware approaches that give users information when they need it. You'll explore what can be done with Ajax to enhance sites and give them a Web 2.0 feel, and how additional JavaScript enhancements can turn a web browser and web site into a true application. The book also explains: Server-side backend components and how to connect them to user interfaces in the browser Web application frameworks such as Struts, Django, Ruby on Rails, and Zend Loading and manipulating XML documents, and how to replace XML with JSON within JavaScript code Manipulating the Document Object Model (DOM) Designing Ajax interfaces for usability, functionality, visualization, and accessibility Site navigation layout, including issues with Ajax and the browser's back button Adding life to tables & lists, navigation boxes and windows Animation creation, interactive forms, and data validation The new frontiers of Search, Web Services and Mash-Ups Applying Ajax to business communications, and creating Internet games without plug-ins The advantages of modular coding, ways to optimize Ajax applications, and much more You will also find references to XML and XSLT, the JavaScript Library, and various Web Service APIs. By offering web developers a much broader set of tools and options, Ajax is giving developers a new way of creating content on the Web, while throwing off the constraints of the past.Ajax: The Definitive Guidedescribes the contents of this unique toolbox in exhaustive detail, and explains how to get the most out of it.
