JavaScript Pocket Reference
Publisher: O'Reilly Media

Pages: 95

JavaScript is a powerful, object-based scripting language that can be embedded directly in HTML pages. It allows you to create dynamic, interactive Web-based applications that run completely within a Web browser -- JavaScript is the language of choice for developing Dynamic HTML (DHTML) content. JavaScript can be integrated effectively with CGI and Java to produce sophisticated Web applications, although, in many cases, JavaScript eliminates the need for complex CGI scripts and Java applets altogether.The JavaScript Pocket Reference is a companion volume to JavaScript: The Definitive Guide. This small book, covering JavaScript 1.2, is a handy reference guide to this popular language for Web development. It provides a complete overview of the core JavaScript language and contains summaries of both core and client-side objects, methods, and properties.

Comments about oreilly JavaScript Pocket Reference:

Another excellent O'Reilly pocket reference. I use this all the time. Own both the 1st and 2nd edition. Only regret is that the 2nd ed lack a couple of the diagrams contained in the first edition.


JavaScript Pocket Reference Review

Comments about oreilly JavaScript Pocket Reference:

Excellent, concise...everything that a pocket reference should be. I would like to see a more detailed approach to developing for both IE and Netscape, and a Document Object Model breakdown for quick referencing.
