Developers are hungry for a concise, easy-to-use reference that puts essential code "phrases" at their fingertips. JavaScript, and the related AJAX, is hot and there is little to no information on how to use JavaScript to develop AJAX-based applications. While there are many JavaScript books on the market, most of them are dated and few cover the most recent developments, such as AJAX. JavaScript Phrasebook is the guide to JavaScript and AJAX that you can and will take with you everywhere. Skipping the usual tutorial on JavaScript and introducing AJAX as one of the first published works on the topic, the JavaScript Phrasebook goes straight to practical JavaScript and AJAX tools, providing immediately applicable solutions for frequent tasks and code so flexible that it is easily adapted to the your individual needs.
