Training Ajax with ColdFusion – 3 days

Class overview :

In this Ajax training course, students learn to make calls to the server with JavaScript and to manipulate XML content returned from the server. Ajax opens the door to creating sophisticated web-based applications with much more of the logic (and therefore code) is handled on the client. While Ajax allows for more dynamic and responsive applications, it changes the traditional role of JavaScript dramatically and forces developers to rethink how they write and manage JavaScript code.

Class goals :

Learn how Ajax works.
Learn to write cross-browser Ajax code.
Learn to use Ajax to make a call to the server without a page refresh.
Learn to modify content blocks on a page without refreshing the whole page.
Learn to use server-side form validation with Ajax.
Learn to move elements around the page with Dynamic HTML.
Learn to show and hide elements.
Learn to manipulate XML documents with JavaScript using the DOM.
Learn to manipulate XML documents with JavaScript using XSLT.
Learn to program in JavaScript using Object-Oriented techniques.
Learn to work with various JavaScript/Ajax libraries, such as Prototype, Scriptaculous, and Sarissa.
