This is a very good introduction to Asp.net Ajax.In the first chapter itself the author shows you how to implement a rudimentary homegrown Ajax framework that helps explain what happens under the hood.Part 2 of the book is focussed on explaining partial page rendering, and the author also takes you on a quick tour of control extenders (control extenders essentially allow existing server side controls to express Ajax behavior). The "Pulsating heart of Asp.net Ajax" explains the plumbing that helps build the Asp.net Ajax framework.Part 3 of the book is devoted to remote method calls to web services and page methods, and also speaks about implementing client side authentication services.This book is a true gem, buy it ...
Dino's a great author, and this book shows it. The book was small, but absolutely packed with great information ranging from how-to's to best practices.I started working with ASP.Net Ajax Extensions back when it was the second CTP under the "Atlas" moniker, and I still learned a ton from this book. If you're looking for *the* one book that will help you start writing solid, ajax-enabled web applications, look no further.
A very good description of how to write good ASP.NET Ajax code, following Microsofts intentions with the framework. Each of the three books I have read, the other two are Professional ASP.NET 2.0 AJAX (Programmer to Programmer) and ASP.NET AJAX in Action, are missing small parts but together the are really good, a 5 star collection.
Programming ASP.NET AJAX by Wenz is much better because it has good writing and organization while the Esposito book is poorly written and too much like a reference book. I read two other Esposito books with the same problem. Both were on ASP.NET, but I cannot remember which version. Probably ASP.NET 2.0.
I am using this book a lot. Even though I am a newbie to AJAX I foud this book and the examples easy to follow and implement into my own apps. If you are new to AJAX add this book to your library.Charles
