Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is a new approach for developing web applications. It essentially permits users to interact with a Webpage without forcing a slow & tedious reload of the entire page after every action. This means web applications become more responsive, easier to use, and more intuitive.Build Your Own Ajax Web Applications uses a step-by-step tutorial format that's so easy to follow, you'll be able to build sophisticated and intuitive Ajax web interfaces in no time!

Read this book, and you'll:

  • Get an overview of the basic technologies you'll need to use to build Ajax applications.
  • Understand the XMLHttpRequest object, the core of Ajax applications.
  • Build a cross-browser XMLHttpRequest wrapper that you can use in all of your Ajax projects.
  • Build an Ajax application monitor that works in real time.
  • Learn how to use Ajax without breaking older browsers or causing accessibility issues.
  • Get your Ajax application working with screen readers.
  • Use dynamic animations to improve usability.
  • Build edit-in-place functionality.
  • Create an Ajax search application that pulls data from Amazon, del.icio.us, and Google.
  • Fix the "Back button" problem.
  • Use JSON, YAML, and XML to communicate with the server.
  • Build an Ajax drag 'n' drop chess game.
  • And a whole lot more!

    Throughout the text, the author stresses usability, accessibility, and graceful degradation for older, less-capable web browsers.

  • Book News Annotation:

    This resource for Web developers explains how to use AJAX to build Web applications that will not disrupt browser navigation tools (such as bookmarks) or create barriers for users of assistive technologies (like screen readers). Features such as instant feedback and drag- and-drop capabilities have been implemented in a way that addresses concerns of backwards compatibility and accessibility. All of the code given has been tested across all major browsers and platforms by a third party. Eernisse builds Web UIs for the Open Source Applications Foundation in Houston.
