AJAX Patterns and Best Practices
Ajax is unique because it combines technologies to make traditional web pages interactive. Ajax Patterns and Best Practices enables you to quickly write applications that work properly. This book is not just about the technical, low-level details of the APIs, but about making things happen on both the client and server sides. This book addresses the server side with the REST protocol. REST and Ajax blend elegantly together, but REST can also be used alone, with just a computer-to-computer solution. Like Ajax, REST can be used with today's existing technologies. Millions of client computers are now Ajax-ready, and millions of servers are REST-ready. This is an ideal book whether or not you have already created an Ajax application. Because the book outlines various patterns and best practices, you can quickly check and verify that you're building an efficient Ajax application.
