His use of a series of small applications to explain different themes, the addition of panels and highlighting of information, tips for obtaining and displaying user information, etc. provides enough introductory knowledge to easily work with jQTouch. I especially liked the way, the sample Book Store web application is created step by step.
The creation of server side and client side database tables is nicely covered and accompanied with running PHP scripts. The use of these scripts for every step is quite helpful in understanding the topic(s).
Additionally, the list of different functions for accessing MySQL from PHP is very informative and greatly assists in understanding the code of the application.
AJAX technique is used for accessing information from server side database table to make the web application quite responsive.
Thanks to Introduction to jQTouch, I am now confident enough to create my own web application for Smartphones.
On the Ajax topic this book suffers (like many others) in that it presents ajax examples that assume the call works, i.e. there is no error trapping to handle failed call. Which can happen during learning/development of an application.
Sorry for my last review, i was really upset.
BUY THE BOOK IS THE ONLY ONE THAT GROUP ALL THIS TECHNOLOGIES FOR APPS OF THE REAL WORLD, BUT GET PATIENCE :)
