Ajax on Java shows you how to make your Java web applications more responsive and dynamic by incorporating new Ajaxian features, including suggestion lists, drag-and-drop, and more. This book demonstrates many different ways of incorporating Ajax, from building JavaScript into your applications “by hand” to using the new Google Web Toolkit (GWT). And, of course, you’ll learn how to use Ajax in your Struts, JSP, and JSF applications.

Ajax on Java starts with an introduction to Ajax, teaching you how to write some basic applications that use client-side JavaScript to request information from a Java servlet and display it without doing a full page reload. It also presents several strategies for communicating between the client and the server, including sending raw data and using XML or JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) for sending more complex collections of data.

The book then branches out into different approaches for incorporating Ajax.

These approaches include:

  • The Prototype and JavaScript libraries, the Dojo and Rico libraries, and DWR
  • Using Ajax to build entry forms and suggestion fields
  • Creating an Ajax tag library and third-party tag libraries
  • Integrating Ajax into JavaServer Pages (JSP) applications
  • Using Ajax with Struts
  • Integrating Ajax into JavaServer Faces (JSF) applications
  • Using Google’s GWT, which offers a pure Java approach to developing web applications: your client-side components are written in Java and compiled into HTML and JavaScript

Ajax on Java teaches you how to build applications that are more interactive, dynamic, exciting, and enjoyable for your users. If you’re a Java developer and haven’t tried Ajax but would like to get started, this book is essential. Your users will be grateful.

Is Ajax a new technology, or the same old stuff web developers have been using for years? Both, actually. This book demonstrates not only how tried-and-true web standards make Ajax possible, but how these older technologies allow you to give sites a decidedly modern Web 2.0 feel.

Ajax: The Definitive Guide explains how to use standards like JavaScript, XML, CSS, and XHTML, along with the XMLHttpRequest object, to build browser-based web applications that function like desktop programs. You get a complete background on what goes into today's web sites and applications, and learn to leverage these tools along with Ajax for advanced browser searching, web services, mashups, and more. You discover how to turn a web browser and web site into a true application, and why developing with Ajax is faster, easier and cheaper.

The book also explains:

  • How to connect server-side backend components to user interfaces in the browser
  • Loading and manipulating XML documents, and how to replace XML with JSON
  • Manipulating the Document Object Model (DOM)
  • Designing Ajax interfaces for usability, functionality, visualization, and accessibility
  • Site navigation layout, including issues with Ajax and the browser's back button
  • Adding life to tables & lists, navigation boxes and windows
  • Animation creation, interactive forms, and data validation
  • Search, web services and mash-ups
  • Applying Ajax to business communications, and creating Internet games without plug-ins
  • The advantages of modular coding, ways to optimize Ajax applications, and more
This book also provides references to XML and XSLT, popular JavaScript Frameworks, Libraries, and Toolkits, and various Web Service APIs. By offering web developers a much broader set of tools and options, Ajax gives developers a new way to create content on the Web, while throwing off the constraints of the past. Ajax: The Definitive Guide describes the contents of this unique toolbox in exhaustive detail, and explains how to get the most out of it.

Creating robust software requires the use of efficient algorithms, but programmers seldom think about them until a problem occurs. This updated edition of Algorithms in a Nutshell describes a large number of existing algorithms for solving a variety of problems, and helps you select and implement the right algorithm for your needs—with just enough math to let you understand and analyze algorithm performance.

With its focus on application, rather than theory, this book provides efficient code solutions in several programming languages that you can easily adapt to a specific project. Each major algorithm is presented in the style of a design pattern that includes information to help you understand why and when the algorithm is appropriate.

With this book, you will:

  • Solve a particular coding problem or improve on the performance of an existing solution
  • Quickly locate algorithms that relate to the problems you want to solve, and determine why a particular algorithm is the right one to use
  • Get algorithmic solutions in C, C++, Java, and Ruby with implementation tips
  • Learn the expected performance of an algorithm, and the conditions it needs to perform at its best
  • Discover the impact that similar design decisions have on different algorithms
  • Learn advanced data structures to improve the efficiency of algorithms

International trade and International trade logistics happens to be one of the most talked about topics of the day. Like everything on earth this area of business has undergone mountains of changes over the last few decades. Starting from the barter economy and reaching today’s world of International trade is not only a very interesting phenomenon but is also of use to all people namely students, working professionals, businessmen or any other person directly or indirectly related to the world of International trade. The sole purpose of this work is to make the basic concepts on international trade understandable to each and every person related or wishes to be related to the world of international trade, as to how the trade is practiced in INDIA, its contractual methods, operational procedures, the obvious role of statutory bodies like customs, director general of foreign trade etc-----. Throughout this work I have taken all possible means to make the explanations as simple as possible so that any person who is even not related to this field of work can take reference of the same and I believe that this will at least enable him to understand the basics of the trade. Participation in International trade happens to be an indicator of a countries economic health. Starting from manufacturing of main stream and auxiliary as well as the service industry reflects the country’s performance in the global business hemisphere. International trade and its effects on a country’s economy does not restricts itself to the external economy but also affects the domestic economy by raising the standard of local enterprises to a competitive global platform . International trade of a country and its effects can be felt upon a long chain starting from the balance of payment situation of a country to raising the standard of local living and live hood as well. Keeping the fundamentals of “trade” constant the periphery of International trade crosses international borders. Unlike domestic trade which is limited to national boundaries international trade aims at reaching every corner of the world making the globe a common market platform. Owing to its very nature it is needless to say that International trade makes it necessary for all its participants to know and understand the fundamental principles, the nature of the trade, the operational and documentation procedures, specially the legal framework of the exporting and importing country as well. India has been a significant participant in International business amongst the developing nations over the last few decades. India’s emerging strengths and developments have led her to become a significant player in the arena of global business. The Government of India has also taken several steps over the years to boost up the country’s exports. Many liberalization schemes have also been undertaken from time to time over the last few decades. The core objective of this work is a purely normative approach to define international trade and to make all its readers understand the very basic meaning of the subject. At a glance we go through the process of exports and imports, the overall sketch of the documentation framework which is perhaps the most important of all understandings. Taking into consideration that the trade necessarily demands the presence of an authentic documentation system to ensure safety of transactions, we also proceed to understand the different types of contracts between contracting parties to the trade. Logistics playing a vital role in today’s world of international trade, the changing world of International trade, with the advent and implementation of changing transport systems have also been touched in the course of this work. Taking into consideration that understanding international trade would just remain incomplete without understanding the different transport systems and the co – relation of transportation to the documentation framework. Briefly touching the evolution of world trade we take a glance at how the trade is practiced across the globe, the inevitable role of statutory bodies like customs, trade councils and chamber of commerce in the process of practicing this trade. It is also evident and understood that the ever changing world of International trade provides a significant scope of self employment across the world and the same is true in India as well , be it in the form of exporters , importers , freight forwarders or custom brokers or consultants. With deep regards and sincere belief that this world of “ International Trade” is one of the finest forms of commercial business I express my sincere regards and humble tribute to the trade at large. Somraj Kundu About the Author Mr. Somraj Kundu, after graduating in commerce from St Xavier's College, Kolkata completed his post graduation in Transportation and Logistics Management from the Indian Institute of Social Welfare and business management, (IISWBM) Kolkata.
