JavaScript: The Definitive Guide Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This Fifth Edition is completely revised and expanded to cover JavaScript as it is used in today's Web 2.0 applications. This book is both an example-driven programmer's guide and a keep-on-your-desk reference, with new chapters that explain everything you need to know to get the most out of JavaScript, including:



  • Scripted HTTP and Ajax
  • XML processing
  • Client-side graphics using the canvas tag
  • Namespaces in JavaScript--essential when writing complex programs
  • Classes, closures, persistence, Flash, and JavaScript embedded in Java applications


Part I explains the core JavaScript language in detail. If you are new to JavaScript, it will teach you the language. If you are already a JavaScript programmer, Part I will sharpen your skills and deepen your understanding of the language.

Part II explains the scripting environment provided by web browsers, with a focus on DOM scripting with unobtrusive JavaScript. The broad and deep coverage of client-side JavaScript is illustrated with many sophisticated examples that demonstrate how to:

  • Generate a table of contents for an HTML document
  • Display DHTML animations
  • Automate form validation
  • Draw dynamic pie charts
  • Make HTML elements draggable
  • Define keyboard shortcuts for web applications
  • Create Ajax-enabled tool tips
  • Use XPath and XSLT on XML documents loaded with Ajax
  • And much more


Part III is a complete reference for core JavaScript. It documents every class, object, constructor, method, function, property, and constant defined by JavaScript 1.5 and ECMAScript Version 3.

Part IV is a reference for client-side JavaScript, covering legacy web browser APIs, the standard Level 2 DOM API, and emerging standards such as the XMLHttpRequest object and the canvas tag.

More than 300,000 JavaScript programmers around the world have madethis their indispensable reference book for building JavaScript applications.

"A must-have reference for expert JavaScript programmers...well-organized and detailed."
-- Brendan Eich, creator of JavaScript

Book News Annotation:

Intended for experienced programmers, this guide explains JavaScript as it is implemented in web browsers, and introduces a variety of scriptable objects that represent the web browser and the contents of HTML and XML documents. A reference section lists relevant object, methods, and properties alphabetically. The fifth edition adds chapters on scripted HTTP and XML manipulation.

Synopsis:

Part tutorial and part reference, this book not only helps you develop new JavaScript skills by building on your basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and the Web in general, it also serves as a detailed reference for the more experienced web developers among you. Furthermore, the fifth edition now includes advanced material on the latest developer topics, such as scripting Flash with JavaScript, HTTP and Ajax, DOM, SVG, XML, web services, and remote scripting. Like all O'Reilly Definitive Guides, this book provides the most comprehensive reference section on the market, documenting every object, property, method, event handler, function and constructor used by client-side JavaScript. The new edition has also been revamped to cover the latest browsers, language updates, extensions, and JavaScript standards. No wonder it's the top-selling JavaScript book of all time. No other book comes close.
