Mission-Critical Ajax: Maximizing Scalability, Performance, Security, Reliability, and Maintainability
Advanced Ajax: Architecture and Best Practices is the definitive guide to building business-critical, production-quality Web applications with Ajax. Shawn M. Lauriat systematically addresses the design, architecture, and development issues associated with Ajax, offering proven patterns and robust code examples available in no other book. You’ll find best practices for addressing the full spectrum of issues enterprise Ajax developers face: scalability, performance, security, reliability, flexibility, maintainability, and reusability.
* Planning Ajax interfaces for simplicity, clarity, and intuitiveness
* Using the latest tools to profile, validate, and debug client-side code
* Architecting the server side for security and functionality, while restricting loaded data, objects, and actions to current requests
* Protecting against the most widespread and significant Ajax security risks
* Optimizing every component of an Ajax application, from server-side scripts to database interactions
* Introducing cutting-edge Ajax: game development, Ajax with canvas, and Ajax for enterprise applications
