Hi Mark ,

I am theja, currently working as dot net trainee . I am planning to learn java too, how important is it to learn javascript for a java developer . Because it is completely a client side programming language whereas java is server side. Can we integrate javascript with java or frameworks like hibernate /Spring ?? How does your book vary from other javascript books , Is the explanation in depth with screen shots ??

Thanks & Regards,
ttheja

Theja, any language you learn helps you learn another language, but JS no more than others.

Integration issues are beyond the scope of my knowledge.

What distinguishes my book is the 1,750 interactive exercises that reinforce the knowledge.

There are screenshots, but not many.

Despite their unfortunately similarity in names, Java and JavaScript have very little to do with each other. A Java programmer does not need to know any JavaScript, and vice versa to be effective in either language. (In fact, I'd say that knowing Java is a fairly big impediment to learning JavaScript -- too many assumptions get carried over. But that's another show.)

That all said, the more you know, the better you are off.
