Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
We've read plenty of Ajax guides by now. Beginning Ajax is one of the most sensible, patient, coherent, and comprehensible we've seen. It's not just well written and well presented: It reflects the growing maturity of Ajax development that has followed the early, hype-driven race to Ajax.

Chris Ullman and Lucinda Dykes open with a thoughtful discussion of what's new (and old) in Ajax, when it makes sense to use it, and when to avoid it. For example: Could your application benefit from constant, automatic updating, or partial page updates? Will Ajax cause problems for you in mobile applications or offline viewing? How do you know whether using Ajax will improve application responsiveness or worsen it? (Incidentally, if you're worried about broken bookmarks and Back buttons, the authors point you to a solution.)

Next, Ullman and Dykes offer a concise refresher on JavaScript and DOM. (If you're completely new to JavaScript, consider checking out the complementary Beginning JavaScript, 2nd Edition, or JavaScript Bible, 6th Edition. But if you've used JavaScript before, this is probably all you'll need.)

You'll learn how Ajax integrates with server-side technology (the authors' techniques will work with any platform you choose). Now you're ready to dive into the heart of Ajax. You'll find clear and thorough coverage of using XMLHttpRequest (and its alternatives); extracting XML data, element, and attribute values; debugging and error handling; using XSLT and XPath; integrating external data and web services, and even using the JSON lightweight data-interchange format to streamline and accelerate your Ajax code. There's also a very welcome chapter on Ajax programming patterns. In short, this is all you need to go from Ajax beginner to Ajax pro. Bill Camarda, from the April 2007 Read Only

Meet the Author

Chris Ullman is a freelance Web developer and technical author who has spent many years working with ASP/ASP.NET. Coming from a computer science background, he started initially as a UNIX/Linux guru, who gravitated toward Microsoft technologies during the summer of ASP (1997). He cut his teeth on Wrox Press ASP guides, and since then he has written and contributed to more than 25 books, mostnotably as lead author for Wrox’s bestselling Beginning ASP/ASP.NET 1.x series. He has contributed chapters to books on PHP, ColdFusion, JavaScript, Web Services, C#, XML, and other Internet-related technologies. After he left Wrox as a full-time employee in August 2001, he branched out into VB.NET/C# programming and ASP.NET development, and he started his own business, CUASP Consulting Ltd, in April 2003. He maintains a variety of Web sites from http://www.cuasp.co.co.uk (his “work” site) to http://www.atomicwise.com (a selection of his writings on music and art). He now divides his time between his family and composing electronic sounds for his music project, Open E.

Lucinda Dykes is a freelance Web developer, teacher, and technical author who has been writing code and developing Web sites since 1994. She started her career in a high-tech area of medicine but left medicine to pursue her interests in technology and the Web. She has been involved in client-side development with JavaScript for many years through her company, Zero G Web, and teaches JavaScript courses online for an international group of students at eclasses.org. She has also authored numerous technical books about XML, XHTML, and Web application development with Dreamweaver.
