Descrizione prodotto

Dalla quarta di copertina

Combining tried–and–true CSS, XML, and JavaScript technologies, Ajax provides web developers with the ability to create more sophisticated and responsive user interfaces and break free from the "click–and–wait" standard that has dominated the web since its introduction.

This book discusses the range of request brokers (including the hidden frame technique, iframes, and XMLHttp) and explains when one should be used over another. You will also learn different Ajax techniques and patterns for executing client–server communication on your web site and in web applications. Each chapter builds on information in the previous chapters so that by the end of the book, you will have gained the practical knowledge necessary to implement your own Ajax solutions.

What you will learn from this book

  • Different methods for achieving Ajax communication and when to use each
  • A variety of Ajax design patterns to use in specific data retrieval circumstances
  • Techniques for using Ajax with RSS and Atom to produce a web–based news aggregator
  • How to use JavaScript Object Notation as an alternate data transmission format for Ajax communications
  • How to create Ajax widgets, such as a weather display and news ticker, that can be included in your web site

Who this book is for

This book is for web developers who want to enhance the usability of their sites and applications. Familiarity with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS is necessary, as is experience with a server–side language such as PHP or a .NET language.

This is a great book -- from chapter 3 onward. :-) Otherwise, I would give it only one star.

Unfortunately, the first 2 chapters are mostly CIPU (clear if previously understood). And, if you don't get a clear understanding of AJAX basics (which you will not get with this book) then the rest of the book is not on topic.

The part of chapter 2 that deals with hidden frames and iFrames was interesting, but obsolete. (Does anybody use frames anymore?) After laboring thru 15 tedious pages you finally find out that this is not the way to do things (as though anybody would these days!). You are then hit with the fact that you must use the authors' zXml library from here on to get things to work. That's just great! Nothing like introducing some 3rd party proprietary confusion to add to an already confusing topic.

As with another AJAX book I have reviewed ("AJAX In Action") these guys really know their stuff. But they forgot that the average reader who buys their book wants to know about AJAX first, not about Comet, mashups and JSON. The blurb on the back cover is misleading. In answer to the topic, "Who this book is for" it states:

"This book is for web developers who want to enhance the usability of their [web] sites and applications. Familiarity with JavaScript, HTML and CSS is necessary, as is experience with a server-side language such as PHP or a .NET language."

Well, I am quite experienced with most of the above topics, but still got very little in the way of how AJAX actually works from this book. This book should be re-titled, "Professional AJAX For The EXPERIENCED AJAX Developer."

I found this book to be extremely informative. It is written in a clear, engaging style that makes it a pleasure to read. The examples are well constructed, relevant to real world applications, and thoroughly explained. The essential bits of code are highlighted for quick reading. The most irritating thing about web development is cross-browser support, and authors do a great job to making this less intimidating and point readers to libraries to abstract away the differences. Also covered are related JavaScript XML, XPath, XSLT support, web services, RSS/Atom.

PHP is the primary server side language used, though they chose .NET/C# for creating a web service. Microsoft's .NET web service tools are excellent, but I would have liked it if the authors had rounded this out with giving the basics of creating a web service using open source solutions.

If you want to learn Ajax techniques and related technologies, this book is well worth your time and money.

This is a great book but entirely irrelevant in todays world. The libraries and methods outlined here are outdated. With modern javascript frameworks like jQuery and Prototype there is, in my humble opinion, certainly no need to delve into the techniques of this book.
