Chapter 9. Libraries Used in Part II: HTML_AJAX

In this chapter


9.2 Summary

The libraries shown in Chapter 8, “Libraries Used in Part II: Sarissa, Scriptaculous,” consisted solely of JavaScript and so could be used with any server-side language; in this chapter, we’re taking a look at a library that takes a language-specific approach. HTML_AJAX contains JavaScript code and PHP code; both are tightly integrated, making the process of communicating between the two sides easier. If PHP isn’t your language of choice, but you still want to look at tightly integrated libraries, look in Appendix B, “AJAX Libraries with Server Ties”), which contains a list of AJAX libraries with tight server-side integration.
