Re-enter the BlackBox

OK, so after finishing jQuery in Action rel="nofollow"> I've finally gotten around to updating my BlackBox™ implementation to use it.



What a joy it was to write the client-side code this time around. Not only did jQuery make it easier to manipulate the UI, it allowed me to jettison a lot of the server-side assist that the previous web versions used.

So, the server-side code got a complete make-over (as in rewritten-from-scratch) as well.

Those familiar with previous versions won;t notice too much of a difference in the user interface, but anyone digging into the client-side code will notice marked changes.

The book (hint, hint) describes how jQuery works and can help you do "more with less" as this web application shows.

Seriously, this isn't a thinly-veiled attempt to try and sell my book — it's really more about the game. But if you are intrigued regarding jQuery you are invited to give it a look-over.
