Is the jQuery UI In Action reference focused in the best practices when you consider jQuery your favorite tool or is is only an exposure of the most jQuery functions and their aim?
Does it expose also a way to integrate well with other javascript libraries (such as Backbone and Ember...) to get the power of both?

Hi Marwen,

The primary goal of the book is to thoroughly explain how the jQuery UI widgets work. An important goal of the jQuery UI project in general is to make integration with other frameworks easy. Therefore it should be easy to drop jQuery UI widgets in regardless of what other frameworks you happen to be using.

That being said some of the book is explicitly devoted to showing how jQuery UI integrates with other popular tools and frameworks. Chapter 10 is devoted to working with jQuery UI in an AMD environment and showing how it works with Require.js. I have an appendix designed to show how you can integrate jQuery UI with Backbone.

I'm afraid then that I will skip the whole way to chapter 10 since I'm an AMD fan. I will be also curious to see how the jQuery UI would intergrate with since I have always complained about the source files size (I know it is of few KB, but sounds big to me compared to other libraries).
What gets me excited about this or that reference is how it is powerful in exposing multi framework integration, since those tutorials and how to are the one I usually can't find.

Thanks TJ for your feedback and I will consider reading your book inmys schedule (It will be the whole one not only chapter 10 :p)
