Book excerpt: Using the Ajax.NET Pro Library

This chapter looks at the Ajax.NET Professional Library, an open-source framework that saves .NET developers from rewriting code to make it available for JavaScript.

As Ajax continues to gain traction as a formidable framework for Web application development, many ASP.NET developers are looking to leverage their existing programming skills while learning a thing or two about Ajax.

Beginning Ajax with ASP.NET caters to these developers. It introduces them to the JavaScript Object Model, the XmlHttpRequest and Microsoft's ASP.NET AJAX framework.

Chapter 7, Ajax.NET Professional Library, discusses the open-source Ajax framework of the same name. The authors explain how to set up an application so it Ajax.NET Pro-enabled, how to register a page class with Ajax.NET Pro -- which ensures that your code does not have to be rewritten to be made available for JavaScript -- and how to execute Ajax on the client. This last task is accomplished with the help of a JavaScript proxy object, which Ajax.NET Pro creates thanks to a .NET Framework property called reflection.
