Originally, web pages were static and each change required the page to be reloaded from the server. This was slow and inefficient. The jQuery JavaScript library is now the standard way for a webpage to update only those parts that need to change, often without even querying the server. Ralph Steyer is a career computer programmer who starts the web developer with the basics of the library and then moves onto to the use of JavaScript within webpages to alter the DOM (document object model), on the fly with no server interaction. The first things covered are the ways to get access, from JavaScript scripts running in the page, to the nodes in the DOM so that they can be inspected and modified. After that the use of style sheets and event handling is discussed. There is also a chapter on how to use jQuery to create animations and visual effects. For the developer needing to pull data from the remote server there is a chapter on AJAX (asynchronous JavaScript and XML) that describes how to format and receive AJAX queries from the web server and use the data to alter the page without reloading it. The use of jQuery UI, essentially a widget library, is covered as is the creation and use of plug-ins. Mobile users are not neglected either with a chapter devoted to jQuery Mobile. There is no bibliography. The book comes with 45 days of free access to the online version. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com) Read More
