Hi Kris,

I'm interested in Ajax because I heared from all the people around me and I read on the net articles about Ajax. So I want to learn and use Ajax in my work.

As Ajax beginner programmer would I find easy to understand?
Does your book lead me from A-to-Z in Ajax world?

Best Regards,

Directly from the book description:


This detailed guide covers the creation of connections to a MySQL database with PHP 5 via a custom Ajax engine and shows how to gracefully format the response with CSS, JavaScript, and XHTML while keeping the data tightly secure. It also covers the use of four custom Ajax-enabled components in an application and how to create each of them from scratch.


So, while it talks about Ajax, in general, the specific examples appear to be covered in PHP.

Whether you use PHP or Java Servlets or even just a .jsp page, it really doesn't matter

Does this book contain tutorials? because I find tutorials easier to understand than long context and explanations...

Hi,

I am also interested in learning Ajax. Does this book comes along with CD? Is this book for the people who don't know ajax at all or it requires some basic knowledge?

In one of the threads, Kris mentioned:

The book is not a beginner book, but I do briefly cover the basic concepts in the first couple chapters. If you are familiar with other programming languages it should be an easy transition.

OK,,,, that is fine with me as long as it gives us a small introduction and basic knowledge in Ajax, because I'm Java programmer I assume it will be easy to understand.....


Thank you,,,,,

Hi Guys,

I'm confused!!! I read an article about Ajax frameworks, so why I need to learn Ajax if I can use Ajax framwrok (which is simpler in programming and implementing).

I need your advice,

Frameworks make life easier for developers. However if you want to know what actually goes behind the scenes then you should have some knowledge of AJAX. Infact this is true for any framework that you use. Also having a sound knowledge of the technology will also help you in selecting the right framework for your application.

Not only that, but if you don't understand the technology underlying a framework, you have little hope of diagnosing problems when the framework doesn't do what you expect. Frameworks are there to save you time (supposedly, doesn't always happen) not to let you stay uninformed.

Yes Bear Kinda .

Though it was not very much related to the jQuery's post, but my interest! Also the way you have told about the 'fact' . Now it somehow coincidentally happened to match up!
