Ground Zero of Ajax
Ajax is a jungle now. When yourAjax , myAjax , net/Ajax etc, are trying to give you a run around in the name of simplicity; this book reminds you that if you are good with keeping track of your codes, it will be a bypass or double bypass of these meshes. This book will render a confidence that Ajax is not an invisible GHOST, simply a block that can autonomously apprehended without reloading a whole webpage. My choices of programming are C++ and Java, like to see a complete layout without any gimicks. This book is one that kind; although it was published in 2006, worth of staying in your library. You may like to read other book like " Building Dynamic Ajax Applications Using WebShere for Web 2.0" and " Advance Ajax" by Shawn M. Lauriat.Was this review helpful?

easier coding style
With all the recent buzz (hype) about Ajax, Hadlock goes back to first principles. He shows that it all centres about the XMLHttpRequest object, which he thankfully elides to XHR. This lets a web page get data from the web server, or post data to it, in the form of a background command. Crucially, it does not need the browser to be refreshed. Basically, it can be seen as a loophole, through which the entire Ajax methodology has emerged. The book explains that XHR gives rise to a programming 'style' that is quite different from traditional http coding. As though you are writing a standard application that runs locally. For many programmers, this may have been how you started programming anyway. Plus, http coding has always had a certain stilted awkwardness about it. The coding narrative of the book might seem more natural and easier. One benefit to the programmer is increased productivity. You should be able to code more functionality, and have fewer bugs.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
