Hi Prabakhar,

I'm new to AJAX but have some experience in Java/JSP/Servlets. How good will this book suit me in getting to know about AJAX? How good after I study the book will I be able to practically use AJAX in my projects??

This book introduces you to gwt, but assumes familiarity with Java, HTML and css.

I copied the syntax from book details page..

Who this book is written for

Readers will need experience writing non-trivial applications using Java. Experience with developing web interfaces is useful, but knowledge of JavaScript and DHTML is not required� GWT takes care of that!

Anyone know any book for working with ajax, in a jsp/servlet system?

Some of my questions are:1) does the ajax call talk to the servlet exactly the same as the ordinary http call to the servlet, i.e., in the same session, with the same session context available to that servlet, etc.?

Next week's book promotion in this forum (this forum's been busy lately!) will be for Ajax in Practice which I co-authored. The backend components for most of the examples in the book is Java.

Yes. From the point of view of a serlvet or JSP, the request is the same as any other request. The browser takes care of setting all the appropriate headers just as if the request were initiated by a link or a form submisssion.

The difference comes in what your code does with those requests.
