Book News Annotation:

Powell, who is CEO of PINT and an instructor at U. of California-San Diego, explains how to shorten the response time of web applications using Ajax (asynchronous JavaScript and XML). Assuming familiarity with CSS and JavaScript, the guide walks through the process of making requests with the XMLHttpRequest (XHR) object, developing an Ajax wrapper library, designing a user interface, securing web applications, and planning the website architecture. Appendices provide JavaScript, HTTP, and AjaxTCR library references. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
