Understanding AJAX: Consuming the Sent Data with XML and JSON

Book Description

Consuming the Sent Data with XML and JSON (Digital Short Cut)

Joshua Eichorn

ISBN 0132337932

There are two main ways that AJAX programmers can process the data received from an XMLHttpRequest object or one of the alternative fallback methods. One is known as the document-centric approach and involves parsing a Document Object Model (DOM) document. The other involves remote scripting using a subset of JavaScript called JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), which is the literal syntax for JavaScript objects. This Short Cut is a detailed examination of both techniques.
