Description - Ajax Patterns and Best Practices by Christian Gross
Ajax is taking us into the next generation of web applications. Ajax has broken the client-server barrier by decoupling the client from the server, but an Ajax application still needs a server to extract content from. The most effective use of Ajax and the server requires an understanding of REST, an architectural style used to define Web services. Ajax Patterns and Best Practices explores dynamic web applications that combine Ajax and REST as a single solution. A major advantage of REST is that, like Ajax, it can be used with today's existing technologies. This is an ideal book whether or not you have already created an Ajax application. Because the book outlines various patterns and best practices, you can quickly check and verify that you're building an efficient Ajax application. Inside the book, the patterns will answer the following questions: * What is Ajax, and REST, and why do you even care? And if I should care what are some examples of websites that make effective use of Ajax and REST? * What are the absolute basics of Ajax and REST and what parts of those basics should I use? * How should deal with large amounts of data? Should I cache the data?
