This unique book will show how to use emerging Asynchronous Javascript and XML (AJAX) technology to make web applications lightning fast for your users. We will examine the use of AJAX in submitting forms and retrieving data, both as single fields and even in complex reports.

The Internet has always operated on a click-refresh-click basis, but those days are now in the past. With AJAX, we can dynamically select, insert, and update our database without refreshing a single page. This allows seamless applications for your end user that are robust and very user friendly, not to mention lightning fast.

There are a few AJAX books currently on the market, but none that deal specifically with using AJAX powered code against an Oracle database. PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, and Application Express can all be grouped with AJAX to provide exciting functionality against and Oracle database, yet no books on the market go over all the possibilities.

In addition, this book will show how to use AJAX and Oracle to make a full monitoring suite; the example the book uses will be a DBA Monitor in order to both teach AJAX and provide a unique application of it that will be good for developers and DBAs.

Lastly, this book is being written by an author with a unique perspective. As a developer, DBA, instructor, and public speaker the book is going to have all possible angles for effectiveness which many books lack.
