Does this book covers Ajax on Ruby GEMs? or Is this book explain the Ajax usage using RubyGems?

RubyGems is just a package management system, a bit like apt-get for Debian Linux or Port/Fink for OSX.

Having said that, you can get a pretty good idea of what kind of gems does the book cover by reading the table of contents.

To me, it doesn't seem like any Ajax-related gem is covered.

There arent any AJAX related gems, as far as I am aware. If you are referring to AJAX calls in Rails, they are usually done via helpers, which are ruby methods, like link_to_remote, etc.

As far as I remember, I didn't cover any AJAX in the book. In fact, I don't think there's even any Javascript, but I'd have to check. (There's a decent amount of HTML, though, both static and dynamic - rails, camping, and markaby, have chapters of their own as well as being used in a number of other gem chapters.)

Take it easy,

Dave
