Hi Ranchers,
I am planning to learn ajax and in this regards, i am planning to purchase "Ajax in Action". But when i went to the shop they confused me that it was for the people from DotNet background. Is that true, because i glanced through the book and dint figure it out. But just wanted to confirm the same i am posting this. Also i have purchased "Javascript The Definitive guide" from orielly publication which covers Ajax too. But my question is shall i purchase Ajax in Action additionally.

hi Pradeep,
There is no need to purchase special book for Ajax. By searching on net you can get very good useful material. I dont think you should buy book for ajax. you can also take help of this forum whenever you are geting problem.

Ajax in Action is a great book on Ajax. One of our Moderators is one of the authors. I am moving this thread to the JavaScript/AJAX forum. This forum is about Application Frameworks.

Thanks

Pradeep,
There are two books out with similar titles: "AJAX in Action" and "ASP.NET AJAX in Action". Please do double check you are buying the former! It focuses on the client side, so is pretty language neutral.

I recommend buying the book rather than piecing together things from elsewhere. It will give you a better conceptual understanding for architecture design. The book also focuses on how to write AJAX/JavaScript that will not be a nightmare to maintain and tools support.

Ajax in Action is a good book. And even though its server-side examples are not Java-focused, that's not all that important for learning Ajax, which is all client-side technology and is independent of what's being used on the server.

If you want more Java focused examples, the follow-on book, Ajax in Practice, exclusively uses Java for its back-end examples (disclaimer: I am an author of this book). While you can start with Ajax in Practice, as it has introductory chapters that teach the basics of Ajax, I'd recommend working through both books if you want a thorough treatment of the subject.
