Hi, I'm just interested in learning something new. AJAX seems to be well worth my time... I've read an article on

http://dhtmlnirvana.com/ajax/ajax_tutorial/#

Although I was able to grasp the idea... I'm not able to absorb everything. Please give me some recommended readings about AJAX. It would be great if it provided example on how I can use it on real world projects. Thanks!

You could always get my book Ajax In Action which is the "big book" on Ajax as people are putting it.

There are sites like Ajaxian and Ajax Developer that have articles on it.

There is my blog on http://www.radio.javaranch.com/pascarello .

The article here is what people like: http://developer.apple.com/internet/webcontent/xmlhttpreq.html

If you read through this forum, we have book promotopns on Ajax and a lot of questions were asked.

That is some places for you to start.

Well, as long as you asked for a reference, I'll give you my favorite

"Foundations of Ajax" is tightly focused on Ajax and its related technologies. All of the examples in "Foundations of Ajax" are specificially designed to demonstrate one or two core Ajax examples, easing the learning curve.

In fact, we've had several readers tell us this is the first tech book they've ever managed to read cover-to-cover!
