Ajax on Java

Ajax on Java Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This practical guide shows you how to make your Java web applications more responsive and dynamic by incorporating new Ajaxian features, including suggestion lists, drag-and-drop, and more. Java developers can choose between many different ways of incorporating Ajax, from building JavaScript into your applications "by hand" to using the new Google Web Toolkit (GWT).

Ajax on Java starts with an introduction to Ajax, showing you how to write some basic applications that use client-side JavaScript to request information from a Java servlet and display it without doing a full page reload. It also presents several strategies for communicating between the client and the server, including sending raw data, and using XML or JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) for sending more complex collections of data.

The book then branches out into different approaches for incorporating Ajax, which include:

  • The Prototype and script.aculo.us Javascript libraries, the Dojo and Rico libraries, and DWR
  • Integrating Ajax into Java ServerPages (JSP) applications
  • Using Ajax with Struts
  • Integrating Ajax into Java ServerFaces (JSF) applications
  • Using Google's GWT, which offers a pure Java approach to developing web applications: your client-side components are written in Java, and compiled into HTML and JavaScript

Ajax gives web developers the ability to build applications that are more interactive, more dynamic, more exciting and enjoyable for your users. If you're a Java developer and haven't tried Ajax, but would like to get started, this book is essential. Your users will be grateful.

Book News Annotation:

Developers are charged with building applications that are dynamic, interactive and exciting, but they also must eat and sleep. Ajax allows a request from a web page to go to the server, get data and display it without bothering the user. The results are web applications that have the responsiveness of sophisticated applications. Consultant and practitioner Olson offers those new to Java the basics and moves up to advanced ideas at a brisk pace. He begins with setup, then advances to creating the application, building and deploying it, setting up XML documents and passing data with ISON, getting useful data (as in forms and suggestion fields), using libraries and toolkits, using DWR, building drag-and-drop functions, creating Ajax tags and libraries, using Struts, combining JavaServer Faces and Ajax, and getting past "handmade" with the Google Web Toolkit. Examples abound, as do illustrations. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This hands-on book covers everything a Java developer needs to know to start building Ajax applications on Java. With plenty of hands-on labs, this book teaches Java developers how to get up and running with Ajax for building efficient and responsive web applications, using examples that take advantage of Java servlets and XML.
