With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

How do you make your enterprise applications available on an assortment of mobile devices as well as the desktop? This hands-on guide shows you how to build HTML5 applications that will satisfy both requirements. You’ll start by learning how to use HTML, JavaScript, CSS, and related technologies to build a sample website for the desktop, and then you’ll discover how to adapt the code for the mobile web.

In the process, you’ll explore options for building a single codebase for both desktop and mobile, using recursive design, or developing two separate codebases. You’ll also compare solutions offered by popular JavaScript frameworks, including jQuery, Ext JS, JQuery Mobile, and Sencha Touch.

  • Learn how develop applications with HTML, JavaScript, CSS, Ajax, and JSON
  • Discover how WebSockets is much more efficient than HTTP for data exchange
  • Select the JavaScript framework that best fits your needs
  • Learn options for moving your application to the mobile space
  • Get code samples from GitHub, and view the sample application on the Web

Comments about oreilly Enterprise Web Development:

This book has been great to open my eyes to new possibilities. I didn't knew a single thing about web development but this book managed to get me interested and working on it. Only reason I rated it 4 stars was because of some redaction issues that may confuse you.

      i read 150 pages of this book. i am satisfied with what i learn and i am sure in the end i ll not be disappointed as well. Peter, that code that you gave as an example is not wrong. author explains how much is the weight of 2 objects in kb with prototype and without it.

          Comments about oreilly Enterprise Web Development:

          I can forgive the strange grammar if English is not the authors' first language.

          But I cannot forgive incorrect advice
          Employee.prototype = new Person();
          emp1 = new Employee();
          emp2 = new Employee();
          Both employees will have the same person as their prototype.
          The book clearly expects each employee to have a different person as their prototype
