By Robert S. Robbins on December 9, 2007
Format: Paperback
This is good book to get if you want to use a JavaScript library for AJAX which is designed to be similar to the .NET Framework in its use of namespaces and classes. The Microsoft AJAX Library is the best choice for ASP.NET developers and this book is an excellect reference guide to using it. In addition, it provides an overview of advanced JavaScript OOP language features and concepts.

I appreciated the extensive listing of online resources for advanced JavaScript tutorials, reference guides, and debugging tools. I learned about many that I did not know about and it included some obscure resources that I was familiar with. In other words, the authors clearly did their homework and were very thorough.

The sample code included detailed explanations of what the code does so you can easily follow it. They even used class diagrams to document the JavaScript classes which qualifies as extra effort since you cannot produce these diagrams using any JavaScript tools. They had to recreate them in C#. I was quite impressed by the authors' technical expertise.

A practical tutorial to enhancing the user experience of your ASP.NET web applications with the final release of the Microsoft AJAX Library. What is Microsoft Ajax Library? Microsoft Ajax Library or otherwise known as Asynchronous JavaScript and XML is a unique compilation of standards-based JavaScript classes included in ASP.NET Ajax. The library is supported by most of today's most popular browsers and is used to build client-centric web applications that are used to integrate with backend data providers. In short Ajax is a web development technique for creating interactive applications.

This book features eight chapters. Each chapter holds a wealth of information. The book as a whole is essential to the understanding of the new Microsoft Ajax Library, it provides a detail look into how each aspect works, how each application or tool can be used, and how the reader can use each to their full advantage. The authors provide a greater understanding of what was once a closed topic, understood only by those who spent year dabbling in it.

Microsoft Ajax Library Essentials is a book designed to serve as a practical tutorial to enhance a user's experience of the ASP.NET web applications with the latest release of the Microsoft Ajax Library. It serves to teach practical development strategies and techniques. The first chapter covers topics such as Ajax and its relationship with Web 2.0, HTTP and HTML, Server Side Technologies, Client Side technologies, What makes Ajax, Uses and Misuses, an introduction to ASP.NET, resources and tools, installing IIS, installing visual web developers, and a section on how to quick start Ajax.

This is a book that should be in your library if you are going to be doing development with ASP.NET AJAX.

Typically when you start learning ASP.NET Ajax all of the material centers around UpdatePanels and leaves out anything to do with the client-side scripts. This book will make you realize how much functionality you are missing by only using UpdatePanels.

Also, this book not only covers learning the ASP.NET AJAX client scripts but how to do object oriented javascript development.
