Is Ajax a new technology, or the same old stuff web developers have been using for years? Both, actually. This book demonstrates not only how tried-and-true web standards make Ajax possible, but how these older technologies allow you to give sites a decidedly modern Web 2.0 feel. Ajax: The Definitive Guide explains how to use standards like JavaScript, XML, CSS, and XHTML, along with the XMLHttpRequest object, to build browser-based web applications that function like desktop programs. You get a complete background on what goes into today's web sites and applications, and learn to leverage these tools along with Ajax for advanced browser searching, web services, mashups, and more. You discover how to turn a web browser and web site into a true application, and why developing with Ajax is faster, easier and cheaper.The book also explains:

How to connect server-side backend components to user interfaces in the browserLoading and manipulating XML documents, and how to replace XML with JSONManipulating the Document Object Model (DOM)Designing Ajax interfaces for usability, functionality, visualization, and accessibilitySite navigation layout, including issues with Ajax and the browser's back buttonAdding life to tables & lists, navigation boxes and windowsAnimation creation, interactive forms, and data validationSearch, web services and mash-upsApplying Ajax to business communications, and creating Internet games without plug-insThe advantages of modular coding, ways to optimize Ajax applications, and moreThis book also provides references to XML and XSLT, popular JavaScript Frameworks, Libraries, and Toolkits, and various Web Service APIs. By offering web developers a much broader set of tools and options, Ajax gives developers a new way to create content on the Web, while throwing off the constraints of the past. Ajax: The Definitive Guide describes the contents of this unique toolbox in exhaustive detail, and explains how to get the most out of it.

Yup this is my favorite book on Ajax. I love Head First books but this one far exceeded my expectations.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am a Java programmer with little bit of experience in web technologies. Before reading this book I had used JavaScript libraries such as [...] So Ajax was not a totally brand new technology for me.

I bought this book because for upcoming project, I wanted a deeper understanding of Ajax. Also sometimes, while using Scriptaculous, debugging was not easy, because I didn't know what was really going on behind the scenes.

After reading this book, I have better understanding of Ajax. This doesn't mean I am Ajax expert now and ready to write my own library. I will stick with existing libraries. But I feel this book has given me enough basic concepts of Ajax (and also some general web design concepts) that I can use Ajax libraries without breaking anything unintentionally.

I don't think I will read another book on Ajax unless I am doing some custom Ajax coding.

This book is not for the person learning on their own, or not in a class. Yes, I agree, Head First presentation is humorous, easy to read, etc., but there are many errors in syntax and code in this book. One needs to set up a server on their computer to run the code. In chapter 1 it says there is info in the Appendix "i", "the top ten topics we didn't cover", but there are only five, and the missing five are not online. I thought the problems were with the server I set up, but other code ran fine. The problem was the code itself. I could fix the syntax and typo errors, but being the student, I am not able to correct the code. It took me two days to figure out the code was the problem. When I saw there were errors in the second chapter also, I quit, and went looking for a better text. Maybe it was rushed to press, and not type read, but after a year, you'd expect that at least the files one downloads for the lessons would have been corrected. Head First was Head Dropped on this one.

It is very discouraging to have a problem with the first code that doesn't work. In the first Chapter there is no information that you should create "script" folder in the downloaded "HeadFirstAjax_Ch01_Initial" and then place created "thumbnails.js" in it. For the html page to work you have to do this or change the script src to " script src="thumbnails.js".

I got this book to learn a little AJAX; I'm often curiuos how stuff works behind the scenes. I've been a fan of this series for years and loved JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, but I found this really hard to get through. It's sort of like reading the phone book, full of information, but dry as a bone. If you don't have a pretty good knowledge of XML, CSS, and XHTML already you won't learn enough here to help you.

Let me be clear, this is not a book that will teach you some AJAX tricks for your website. I find that a better way to learn, by seeing the little bits and then building to bigger and better things. I made it about half way through before I just lost interest and it's been sitting on the table ever since gathering dust ever since. If you're a devloper or really know what you're doing already and want to gain some better knowledge or some new ideas, then this is a good book. If you're just starting out or a casual user then you should definitely start with a different book.

For CSS, CSS: The Missing Manual was a well written and easy read. If that series ever does an AJAX book or just for learning the supporting pieces of AJAX bit by bit, you might try those books.

While the concept of the book is good and appeals to the nerd/comic book lover in me, it was a bit overly complicated. It seemed like they tried to make everything easy with lots of pix, in point of fact the concepts are STILL very difficult and having the candy coating actually was more confusing to me.

Maybe it was just me. But I got a lot more out of other references.

the head first style is great, in that it really takes the time explain the details. it never assumes you know anything, and as a result, you learn a lot. i think they did a really good job of this. with that said, the "head first style" grows old the further you go along in the book with a strong want for real code examples without all the goofy stuff. and with that, it's well documented at this point, the book has code errors.

This book is terribly outdated now. The advent of jQuery makes much of the authors code seem overly complex these days. For anyone new to JavaScript based web design, the first few hundred pages are a good introduction to working with ajax, but after that much of the technology outlined in this book can be achieved via much easier methods with the frameworks available today.
