Hi All,
I am currently working with web technologies and very much new to JQuery. SO would like to know the following:
1. As far as I understand JQuery replaces the conventional Ajax and Java script concept. Does this book covers how AJAX call can be made via JQuery?
2. Is JQuery used for Mobile technologies as well?
3. Now a days I heard lots about Angular JS. How Jquery is different than Angular JS?

If you please help me to understand above answers that will be really appriciated.

1. jQuery doesn't really "replace" anything in Javascript -- it uses JavaScript, but it provides higher levels of abstraction via methods that make doing things that are usually complicated, like Ajax and event handling, a lot easier. And yes, jQuery's Ajax methods are covered in great depth.

2. jQuery runs perfectly well in mobile browsers. There is also a project called jQuery Mobile which layers on jQuery to provide a mobile framework. It is not part of core jQuery.

3. See this topic from earlier today.
