Publisher Comments:

Learn how to deliver richer, more interactive web experiences to your users using ASP.NET Atlas, Microsoft's new framework for building Ajax-savvy web sites. Web developers of all persuasions have embraced the Ajax suite of technologies (JavaScript, HTTP, XML and more) as a way to implement pages that are faster, livelier and more desktop-like in their behavior. Now Atlas brings the power of Ajax to ASP.NET 2.0 developers with controls, script libraries and server support that delivers engaging results without the pain that writing complex JavaScript can entail. Better yet, Atlas web pages are standards based and even run cross-browser.



Programming Atlas is not just another "drag and drop" ASP.NET 2.0 book, but dives into the technologies that make it work. You'll begin with a tour of the technologies most often associated with Ajax, from JavaScript and XMLHttpRequest to JSON and the DOM. With the fundamentals in place, author JavaScript expert Christian Wenz unpacks the Atlas framework and shows you how to put its tools to work. You'll learn to:

  • Understand the architecture of Atlas and the role played by serverconrols, such as ScriptManager and UpdatePanel
  • Use core Atlas controls and extenders to build more interactive pages with text fields that autocomplete, user input that is validated, controls that can be dragged and dropped, and much more
  • Bind, display, and update data without causing the entire page to refresh and use the Atlas web services bridge to consume third-party services beyond the domain of your application
  • Incorporate Microsoft Virtual Earth into an application, use Atlas with Web Parts, and create a Windows Live Gadget
  • Use Atlas with PHP and explore other non-Microsoft Ajax tools for ASP.NET

Book News Annotation:

"Christian Wentz takes pride in the fact that he wrote about using JavaScript to exchange data with the server long before it was named "Ajax." This is a guide for Web developers building Ajax- style applications with ASP.NET Atlas, Microsoft's latest framework for more interactive Web sites. The author reviews what one needs to know about JavaScript to master Atlas, Ajax's structure, and its client-side controls and components. Chapters include examples and further reading. Method documentation references are appended. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Use Atlas with PHP and explore other non-Microsoft Ajax tools for ASP.NET

Synopsis:

In the past year, developers worldwide have embraced the Ajax combination of technologies (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) as a way to build web applications that deliver users a more desktop-like experience. Now, in an effort to simplify Ajax development, especially for ASP.NET 2.0 developers, Microsoft has introduced a new framework, code-named Atlas, that is loaded with tools, templates and controls that simplify the creation of Ajax savvy web pages that are richer, more interactive, and more personalized, as well as standards-based and able to run cross browser.

Programming Atlas provides experienced web developers with an exciting hands-on tour of Atlas, beginning with an introduction to the Ajax technologies behind it all, from JavaScript, and XMLHttpRequest to JSON. Author Christian Wenz then unpacks the Atlas framework and shows how to use it to create Ajax-enabled web sites. Dozens of examples demonstrate how to use core Atlas controls and extenders, how to bind and display data, and how to draw on the power of Microsoft Web 2.0 services such as Microsoft Virtual Earth and Windows Live. The book is especially useful to web developers who are new to Ajax, regardless of their current platform, and its combination of well-explained examples and reference material, concisely presented, makes the concepts of this new framework accessible to developers of various technical levels.
