Hello book authors,

What is the server side technology illustrated in this book? Is it Java or .NET.

Does this book require the use of a certain IDE or tool.

Regards,
Khaled Mahmoud.

From what I've read from the forum, Ajax in Practice's server-side code is Java focused.

hello,
I dont know whether the book AJAX IN PRACTICE is java or .net focused. But i feel it hardly matters. If the book is focused on any particular server side language it makes little difference. I think, the syntactical difference between Java and .net in the sever side wont be a trouble. You have to use the same logic(same in .net), which matters. If you find any difficulty in reading Java Syntax then go through that word in JAVA API provided by the sun.
Moreover, the authors will never give more emaphasis on the server side language in the book. They will provide the server part just for the illustration of the AJAX application.

Thanks & Regards

Hi Khaled,

The server-side examples in the book are Java / JSP - based, but as Prithiraj said, the focus is on client-side techniques in all cases, and the server-side code is simply there to fill in the gaps. Certainly, in the chapters that I wrote, I made sure the server-side logic was as generic and straightforward as possible, to make sure that everyone can understand it, and I know that Bear and Jord did the same.

And, no particular IDE is needed.
