    Forget JAVA, it's AJAX on the throne.
    Did you just see that? A bright light crossing your monitor screen. Yes, another flash back post by me. By the way, the bright light was suppose to be the flash back.

    Java was promoted as the best language back in the early days of internet. Developed by James Gosling at Sun Microsystem, Java is compiled to a bytecode which is then rn by Java Virtual Machine. Borrowing syntax from C and C++, Java is much simpler object model.
    The Java platform and language began as an internal project at Sun Microsystems in December of 1990. Engineer Patrick Naughton had become increasingly frustrated with the state of Sun's C++ and C APIs (application programming interfaces) and tools. While considering moving to NeXT, Naughton was offered a chance to work on new technology and thus the Stealth Project was started. - via Wikipedia.

    Everybody was eager to learn Java and so many 'instant guru' teaching java for a fee. Suddenly, Java is booming all over the world of programmers. So many books about Java selling like hot cakes. That was in the early years but now AJAX is the king.

    AJAX ( Asynchronous JavaScript And XML ) can speed up your website and give it more interactivity. AJAX is a mixture of uhmm...almost everything; from Javascript to DOM.

    AJAX also assocites to the latest frenzzy of Web2.0. You know, those big fonts and bright colours website. AJAX is great to get things done without maximum usage of bandwidth.

    I'm still learning AJAX from internet and samples. I'm not a programmer but i just love learning new things. Yes, i got F+ for CSS and DOM in my own imagery class. One step at a time cowboy.

    Talk about learning AJAX, more and more books and tutorial offering readers from making fancy menu right up to making simple Sudoku game. Another marketing boom for computer language. Last week as i was in a bookstore, i saw AJAX books on the "latest arivals" stands. So i decided to read the books randomly.

    Most are ok but some, just too complex for a newbie like me. Okay, i do have basic on programming ( VB, C, C++, Delphi, Java etc ) but still the book was to hard to understand. If i, who has some basic programming knowledge; i can't imagine the 'real' newbies out there. The funny thing about the book is the title. Want to know what was the title?

    "The Basic handbook for AJAX for beginners" was the title. They should drop the word basic and beginners for a start.
