Working with Ajax and Ruby on Rails
Besides the client-side Ajax frameworks you’ve seen in the previous two chapters, there are a number of server-side Ajax frameworks as well, and this chapter is about them.
Server-side Ajax frameworks are available in many different languages. Perhaps the most popular is the server-side scripting language PHP, so this chapter starts with a discussion of PHP-based server-side frameworks. You’ll also see Java-based server-side frameworks as well as Ruby on Rails frameworks in this chapter.
