Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For undergraduate students who have completed a course in object-oriented programming

 

Programming the World Wide Web 2010 provides a comprehensive introduction to the tools and skills required for both client- and server-side programming, teaching students how to develop platform-independent sites using the most current Web development technology. Essential programming exercises are presented using a manageable progression: students begin with a foundational XHTML Web site and employ new languages and technologies to add features as they are discussed in the course. Readers with previous experience programming with an object-oriented language are guided through concepts relating to client-side and server-side programming, including ASP.NET using C#, JavaScript™, Java™ servlets, Ajax, JSP™, XHTML, XML, PHP, Ruby, and Rails.

 

 

Book News Annotation:

Sebesta (computer science, U. of Colorado) includes updates and new material in this fifth edition of his introductory textbook on programming tools and skills for building and maintaining server sites on the Web. Some new elements of this edition are: the Flash chapter includes examples of drawing graphic figures and animation, new sections in the Ajax chapter on document return forms and Ajax toolkits and security, and significant revisions in the Rails chapter to accommodate Rails 2.0. Students using this text are expected to have a solid background in programming in a language that supports object-oriented programming and some knowledge of a second programming language.
