"Ajax with PHP 5" is a detailed overview of how to use PHP technologies to create interactive, fault-tolerant, and responsive web applications.
This Short Cut first concentrates on the fundamentals of Ajax. Then it covers serving (or providing) content formatted in both XML and JSON.
Finally, we completely immerse ourselves in the Ajax world and write two PHP applications that use each markup language on both the client and server.
We encourage you to use the classes and examples given to produce your own rich Web 2.0-style applications.
