Product Description

From the Back Cover

Now you can provide users with the same rich experience and functionality on the web that they've become accustomed to on the desktop computer. This book will show you how to take AJAX and Ruby on Rails to the next level by combining numerous cutting-edge technologies in order to develop full-fledged web applications. It explores a number of frameworks and in-browser APIs while providing code for your own implementations.

You'll gain a thorough understanding of the underlying design principles behind professional Rich Internet Application (RIA) development and the various tools that are available to accomplish your design goals. You'll break down an application into client-side and server-side technologies, and you'll take advantage of key concepts such as mashups, auto-completion, and tagging for social sites.

What you will learn from this book

  • How to develop RIAs in Java®, Ruby, and Python®
  • Tips for enhancing your productivity and debugging your application

  • Techniques for solving common issues in web applications when building a RIA

  • All about the higher-level themes and development packages that build on top of RIA technologies

  • How to develop, deploy, and control third-party access to your RIA
