    Comments about oreilly Dynamic Apache with Ajax and JSON:

    In response to Akira - the code was written, verified, and tested by both the author during development and O'Reilly Media technical staff. I suspect that Akira's development environment was not adequately configured for his or her project and the author doesn't appreciate the unfair review highlighting inadequacies in his or her skill.

    Author had a big idea, tried writing a first draft. Failed.

    Comments about oreilly Dynamic Apache with Ajax and JSON:

    Wretched. Simply wretched. The code sample requires much editing of obvious errors before it will compile. Then during debugging I found I was still fixing every second line (of hundreds) to get the test to run.

    This "shortcut" seems to just be a test chapter to see if a full-size book could be written on the subject. Lots of vital connecting information left out, presumably to be added in the second draft. Put it out of it's misery.
