Annotation Backbase is a very powerful and complex JavaScript library, with many user interface components to help make web development easier. It allows the development of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) that run within all major browsers but its powers and complexity mean that the choice of component can be overwhelming. Understanding when and how to use the right component might not always be straightforward. This book makes that easier.<br /><br />This is a practical book that teaches you how to use the Backbase Client Framework effectively, with a complete overview and many examples.

With this book in hand, it is easy to enable AJAX within your web application.
