Mastering Ajax - 5 Part Tutorial from IBM

Here are 5 excellent Ajax tutorials from IBM that will teach you how to code using this important web development technology.


Mastering Ajax, Part 1: Introduction to Ajax
Ajax, which consists of HTML, JavaScript, DHTML, and DOM, is an outstanding approach that helps you transform clunky Web interfaces into interactive Ajax applications. The author, an Ajax expert, demonstrates how these technologies work together -- from an overview to a detailed look -- to make extremely efficient Web development an easy reality. He also unveils the central concepts of Ajax, including the XMLHttpRequest object.

Mastering Ajax, Part 2: Make asynchronous requests with JavaScript and Ajax
Most Web applications use a request/response model that gets an entire HTML page from the server. The result is a back-and-forth that usually involves clicking a button, waiting for the server, clicking another button, and then waiting some more. With Ajax and the XMLHttpRequest object, you can use a request/response model that never leaves users waiting for a server to respond. In this article, Brett McLaughlin shows you how to create XMLHttpRequest instances in a cross-browser way, construct and send requests, and respond to the server.

Mastering Ajax, Part 3: Advanced requests and responses in Ajax
For many Web developers, making simple requests and receiving simple responses is all they'll ever need, but for developers who want to master Ajax, a complete understanding of HTTP status codes, ready states, and the XMLHttpRequest object is required. In this article, Brett McLaughlin will show you the different status codes and demonstrate how browsers handle each and he will showcase the lesser-used HTTP requests that you can make with Ajax.

Mastering Ajax, Part 4: Exploiting DOM for Web response
The great divide between programmers (who work with back-end applications) and Web programmers (who spend their time writing HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) is long standing. However, the Document Object Model (DOM) bridges the chasm and makes working with both XML on the back end and HTML on the front end possible and an effective tool. In this article, Brett McLaughlin introduces the Document Object Model, explains its use in Web pages, and starts to explore its usage from JavaScript.

Mastering Ajax, Part 5: Manipulate the DOM
Last month Brett introduced the Document Object Model, whose elements work behind the scenes to define your Web pages. This month he dives even deeper into the DOM. Learn how to create, remove, and change the parts of a DOM tree, and take the next step toward updating your Web pages on the fly!

 



J2EE Learning Guide

This guide gives you a well presented detailed overview of J2EE and includes articles, tutorials, examples, tips, tools, and expert advice to increase your J2EE knowledge and understanding quickly. J2EE is an abbreviation for Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition, which is the Java platform designed for the mainframe-scale computing typical of large enterprises. Sun Microsystems (together with industry partners such as IBM) designed J2EE to simplify application development in a thin client tiered environment. J2EE simplifies application development and decreases the need for programming and programmer training by creating standardized, reusable modular components and by enabling the tier to handle many aspects of programming automatically.

 



Web Development Tutorials from the Shadow Fox Network

The Shadow Fox Network provides quality articles and tutorials covering php, xhtml, css, xml, rss, javascript, and ruby on rails, along with tutorials on being a webmaster. These will help you make a better and more attractive web site.

 



XML Learning Guide

This guide explains what XML is, how it's used, and where it fits into the world of Web services. Here you will find XML articles, tutorials, examples, tips, tools, white papers, expert advice and more to increase your XML knowledge and understanding. XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a flexible way to create common information formats and then consistenly share both the format and the data on the WWW, intranets, and elsewhere. Using a standard way of describing data, as XML allows, enables users to send an intelligent agent (a program) to a target, such as a web site, gather data, make a comparison of the data, and then send back results to the user..

 



67 Beginning and Advanced PHP Tutorials

PHP is an open-source, reflective programming language. Originally designed as a high-level tool for producing dynamic web content, PHP is used mainly in server-side applications. PHP 5 is the latest version and includes new features such as PHP Data Objects and more performance enhancements. PHP generally runs on a web server, using PHP code as its input and creating Web pages as output.

Good PHP Tutorials provides a wide selection of 67 well written PHP tutorials, covering PHP training from Beginner to Advanced to Object Oriented.

Fast Guide to PL/SQL

PL/SQL is the procedural language extension to the structured query language (SQL) for the Oracle database. It combines a database language with a procedural programming language, which is built on a basic unit called a block. By compiling and storing executable blocks, Oracle can process the PL/SQL quickly and easily. PL/SQL supports variables, conditions, arrays, and exceptions. Implementations from version 8 of the Oracle RDBMS onwards have included features associated with object-orientation.

This fast guide from SearchOracle.com provides PL/SQL tips, expert explanations, and web resources and will help both newbies and veterans become better acquainted with this database language and hone their developer skills.

Writing Regular Expressions

A Regular Expression (abbreviated as regexp or regex, with plural forms regexps, regexes, or regexen) is a string that describes or matches a set of strings, according to certain syntax rules.  This blog post of mine reviews what regular expressions are, describes what patterns are and details the syntax that is used when writing regular expressions.
