From the reviews:
"It offers an overview of all of the options available for adding Ajax to an application developed with JDeveloper. … The summary tables of the key methods and properties would prove very useful to new developers. … For any JDeveloper user wishing to add Ajax to their application and unsure about which approach to take, this book would make an excellent resource, providing a very useful high-level overview." (Stephen Smith, Library & Information Update, July/August, 2009)
"This book will provide you with new knowledge concerning the binding of AJAX parts and the creation of a functional web AJAX application. … The examples are detailed enough for beginners to easily understand and implement them in their own web application. … This book is an ideal one for librarians who create and maintain web sites … . I would also recommend the book to students who learn AJAX. … All in all, the book is very useful, not too hard to read." (Tomislav Jakopec, International Cataloguing and Bibliographic Control, Vol. 38 (2), April/June, 2009)
