The first part, chapters one and two, deals with best practices proper, to ease both initial development and subsequent maintenance. These deal with such things as naming conventions, folder structures, coding styles and documentation support, with specific recommendations on tools that aid these activities. The importance of this project organization is emphasized several times throughout the book. So, too are reminders the business side will certainly welcome, while the designers and developers all too often overlook: Build to accomplish the task at hand, as simply as possible, nothing more and nothing less.
The third and last part, chapters six through twelve, deal with presentation, multimedia, UI and accessibility issues, as well as interactivity and several third party components that extend RIA possibilities. It also looks at advanced subjects based on the next versions of the several open standards currently undergoing revision.
Finally, the book has a deep and well organized index that makes for a very good desk reference.
