Description

The dramatic emergence of Ajax over the past year was a first step in the transition

from page-oriented HTML web applications towards more full-featured

rich internet applications. OpenLaszlo provides another important step in this

continuing evolutionary process. It provides developers with the tools to create

web-based applications offering the usability and interactivity associated with

desktop applications, and the low costs associated with web-based deployment.

Written to address the needs of a wide spectrum of developers, ranging from

client-side HTML and JavaScript developers all the way to enterprise-class Java

or Rails engineers,

Laszlo in Action provides a very hands-on approach towards

building applications that solve real-world problems across both the Flash and

DHTML platforms. The construction of the Laszlo Market proceeds over the

course of the book illustrating topics starting with an initial wireframe and storyboard

design to optimization issues dealing with the application's deployment

across the Flash and DHTML platforms.
