[Book] "Profession al Ajax" - is it ok if I prefer Open Source ???

Hi,

I'm going to create applications PHP + AJAX + Linux + Apache + Postgres.
- Other Open Source technologies / Frameworks, etc. also :)

Is this book http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0471777781
suitable for my "case"? I'm asking persons who read this book :)

I wouldn't like to buy something unuseless, which for example
is completely concentrated on .NET, C#, ASP.NET, m$something etc...
- I'm not going to use/learn those technologies.

On the other hand, maybe someon of you will tell me: "AJAX is AJAX
- and you use it independently from the platform".
So maybe (?) those examples would be usefull anyway? after modifications
So maybe I should buy this book also for my future open source
applications.
I would also appreciate indications like this - and buy this book :)

Thank you in advance,
Best regards~~Piotre k~~pe3no.

P.S. Sorry for my unperfect English :)

Dear Piotrek,

personally, I liked this one:

FWIW.. I haven't read that book.. but...

The real conceived use of Ajax is to avoid unnecessary data
retrieval (and so JSON); but that is proved to be wrong in many
applications.

Many applications prefer "degrades gracefully" architecture and
unobtrusive JavaScript. The idea is:

1. You construct the web application in standard compliance manner
2. Then you Ajaxify the application--usually "degrades gracefully"
manner

SEO and easy interation is major advantage. My <spam>BehaviorS .js</
spamand JQuery libs could be mentioned here.

I have some javascript in a standard HTML page that uses the ubiquitous "XMLHttpRequest" to send data to a remote ASP page. If that page "answers back" by sending a string using a simple Response.Write, which I then use in the original HTML page to dynamically update stuff, is this "AJAX"? Specifically, is there anything "wrong" with sending back info from classic ASP pages using simple Response.Writes? (Is there usually something...

Probably a lot of you here are already old hands at Ajax, but I haven't started doing this yet. Part of the reason was that I really didn't understand where Ajax would be useful to my own site, and also that my experiences with early Javascript put me off on that a bit. "Understanding Ajax" by Joshua Eichorn helped me with both of those impediments. Complete review at http://aplawrence.com/Books/understanding_ajax.html --

Which should I use: 1. "ASP.NET AJAX-Enabled Web Site" or 2. "AJAX Control Toolkit Web Site"? In the first, controls from the control toolkit start as: <cc1:SomeControl></cc1> In the 2nd, those controls are: <ajaxToolkit:SomeControl></ ajaxToolkit>

It took me some time to find out when and why this happens. When the window of Internet Explorer is closed with an AJAX call still pending, something funny happens. Do it twice, and you will have to restart the browser. Here a little sample: http://truefriendz.de/iedos The script on this site will open 5 test-windows one at a time.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
