Ajax on Rails

Learn to build dynamic, interactive web applications using the two most important approaches to web development today: Ajax and the phenomenally efficient Ruby on Rails platform. This book teaches intermediate to advanced web developers how to use both Ajax and Rails to quickly build high-performance, scalable applications without being overwhelmed with thousands of lines of JavaScript code. More than just recipes, you also get a thorough, low-level understanding of what’s happening under the hood


Head First Ajax

This book offers a big picture overview to introduce Ajax, and then explores the use of individual Ajax components — including the JavaScript event model, DOM, XML, JSON, and more — as it progresses. You’ll find plenty of sample applications that illustrate the concepts, along with exercises, quizzes, and other interactive features to help you retain what you’ve learned.

Head First Ajax covers:
• The JavaScript event model
• Making Ajax requests with XMLHTTPREQUEST objects
• The asynchronous application model
• The Document Object Model (DOM)
• Manipulating the DOM in JavaScript
• Controlling the browser with the Browser Object Model
• XHTML Forms
• POST Requests
• XML Syntax and the XML DOM tree
• XML Requests & Responses
• JSON — an alternative to XML
• Ajax architecture & patterns
• The Prototype Library

ajax for dummies

This book gives you the whole Ajax story, from soup to nuts. It starts with a tour of how Ajax is used today, taking a look at some cutting-edge applications (as well as some games). Then, because Ajax is based on using JavaScript in the browser, there’s a chapter on how to use JavaScript (if you already know JavaScript, feel free to skip that material). Then the book plunges into Ajax itself, creating Ajax applications from scratch, from the beginning level to the most advanced. And you’ll see how to put many of the free Ajax frameworks, which do the programming for you, to work. Because Ajax also often involves using XML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and server-side programming (using PHP in this book), there’s also a chapter on each of these topics

foundations of ajax

Book Description
Much of the early hype surrounding Ajax centered on its use by Internet powerhouses such as Google and Amazon. However, just because the initial forays into Ajax were pioneered by leading software development firms doesn’t mean your application wouldn’t also benefit from these techniques. You already know how to develop Web applications, so this book uses specific, focused examples to teach the Ajax tools and techniques you’ll need to bring your applications to life. Armed with this book and your existing development expertise, you too will be able to apply Ajax techniques to your application to enrich the end users experience.

ajax in action

Web users are getting tired of the traditional web experience. They get frustrated losing their scroll position; they get annoyed waiting for refresh; they struggle to reorient themselves on every new page. And the list goes on. With asynchronous JavaScript and XML, known as “Ajax,” you can give them a better experience. Once users have experienced an Ajax interface, they hate to go back. Ajax is new way of thinking that can result in a flowing and intuitive interaction with the user.
Ajax in Action helps you implement that thinking–it explains how to distribute the application between the client and the server (hint: use a “nested MVC” design) while retaining the integrity of the system. You will learn how to ensure your app is flexible and maintainable, and how good, structured design can help avoid problems like browser incompatibilities. Along the way it helps you unlearn many old coding habits. Above all, it opens your mind to the many advantages gained by placing much of the processing in the browser. If you are a web developer who has prior experience with web technologies, this book is for you.

Ajax and REST Recipes

The book mainly focuses on illustrating and explaining how to build applications that use JavaScript, Ajax, and REST Web Services, along with some user interface issues. Specifically, the following topics are covered: implementing JavaScript unit tests; explaining the intent of Dynamic Languages, Web Services and SOA; defining and implementing contracts using REST; understanding why JavaScript Functions have state; implementing JavaScript “Generics”, which are a mixture between real Generics and a replacement algorithm; using code blocks; using functions to make decisions; understanding the difference of JavaScript code that behaves like a value type or a reference type; implementing proxies, delegates, mixins, and overloaded functions; implementing a complete Ajax and Web Service architecture; defining a Web Service using REST; handling large or slow or real-time data sets; implementing shopping cart type architectures; and solving the back button problem using Ajax.

The patterns outlined in the book fall into four categories:

* Foundational technology: Examines the raw technologies required for Ajax development

* Programming: Exposes techniques that developers have discovered to ensure their Ajax applications are maintainable

* Functionality and usability: Describes the types of user interfaces you’ll come across in Ajax applications, as well as the new types of functionality that Ajax makes possible

* Development: Explains the process being used to monitor, debug, and test Ajax applications.

Ajax Design Patterns will also get you up to speed with core Ajax technologies, such as XMLHttpRequest, the DOM, and JSON. Technical discussions are followed by code examples so you can see for yourself just what is-and isn’t-possible with Ajax. This handy reference will help you to produce high-quality Ajax architectures, streamline web application performance, and improve the user experience.
