What the purpose behind using libraries (prototype... etc) with Ajax? What libraries do effects on Ajax web application? Is this better to apply instead of without using it? (If it is then why) I am expecting that your book covers these concepts with clear depiction. I believe (Graphical illustration gives you better and quick understanding instead of words)
If you create a library properly you can reuse it in other Ajax applications. This is the same concept of creating object libraries in other languages. My book covers the creation of components in depth and includes graphics of the finished products in most cases. There are many effects libraries out there, http://script.aculo.us is one of the more popular ones.

I have read about it a bit and it looks very useful, but I have never actually used the library. I'm sure you could find some information on it with a simple Google search. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
But I am a beginner to using prototype in Ajax could you please provide me some resources(example) of implementation of it.
The book Prototype and Scriptaculous Quickly, which I wrote in conjunction with Dave Crane (of Ajax in Action fame) is due to be out in the beginning of 2007, and is currently available from the Manning Early Access Program.
Ajax in Practice
Thanks for your information bear,
