For Immediate Release

Manning Publications Releases Ajax in Action


Noted Ajax developers team up to write authoritative book on Ajax


Greenwich, CT. October 19, 2005 -- Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, known as Ajax, has exploded on the Web development scene, introducing a new breed of applications, such innovations as Google Maps, imbued with the rich expressiveness of desktop applications. Up to now, there has been no authoritative guide to this complex set of technologies. Manning Publications has today released the most comprehensive book to date, Ajax in Action.

Ajax in Action re-orients the reader�s conceptual framework away from traditional Web app development to richer, more useable interactions. The authors, noted Ajax developers Dave Crane, Eric Pascarello, and Darren James, use their extensive experience to cover core techniques, demonstrate how to manage the Ajax code base and teach design patterns and best practices. Their techniques emphasize optimal security and performance. A highlight of the book is the collection of five real-world examples that provide readers with ready-to-use Ajax components for use in their own Web applications.


�Ajax in Action will open the minds of programmers to the many advantages gained by using Ajax,� said Manning publisher Marjan Bace.

Ajax in Action is written for developers who have prior experience with Web technologies but who approach from such diverse paths as software development, graphic design, Web design, or desktop application development. Server-side code is presented in a mixture of languages including PHP, Java, C#, and Visual Basic .NET. Three appendices cover Ajax tools and tricks, a JavaScript primer, and a roundup of Ajax frameworks and toolkits.


About the Authors �

Dave Crane has pushed the boundaries of DHTML, and latterly Ajax, on digital TV set-top boxes, in home automation and banking and financial systems. He lives in Stroud, Gloucester, UK. Eric Pascarello is an ASP.NET developer and a moderator of the HTML and JavaScript forum at JavaRanch. He lives in Laurel, MD. Darren James is the architect of the open source Rico project and lives in Sunnyvale, CA.
