About The BookYour essential guide to developing Web applications with AJAX, JavaScript, and XML

Make your rich Internet applications easier to write, manage, and update by leveraging ASP.NET AJAX, the Microsoft AJAX Library, and the Windows® mmunication Foundation Web programming model. With extensive code samples and guidance from an AJAX expert, you’ll learn to separate the Web services API layer and user interface—a service-oriented approach that allows you to easily add features and integrate components as your application evolves.

Discover how to:

  • Employ an architecture pattern that highlights the Web services API

  • Tap the AJAX Library framework, extensions, namespaces, and runtime controls

  • Enable authentication, profiles, and authorization using AJAX application services

  • Apply JavaScript models for object-oriented development and XSLT for client-side rendering

  • Use the AJAX Library event-based programming model and component-based JavaScript architecture

  • Deploy Web services and AJAX controls to Windows SharePoint Services® 3.0 and Microsoft Office SharePoint® Server 2007
