Free Excerpt: Nicholas Zakas on YUI Connection Manager, from Professional Ajax 2nd Edition
In this new edition, Nicholas spends part of Chapter 4 exploring the YUI Connection Manager. He dives into its usage and steps through the implementation of asynchronous XMLHttp requests including the passing of arguments, form handling, callbacks, scope, timeouts and more. This chapter also includes a look at Connection Manager's file upload feature. With his cogent style and clear examples, Nicholas provides a wonderful introduction to the Connection Manager and how to use it as the basis of your ajax-driven workflow.
We asked Wrox Sr. Acquisitions Editor Jim Minatel, Nicholas's editor, if we could share a PDF version of this content on YUIBlog, and he graciously agreed. Thanks to Jim (and to Nicholas) for letting us make this available:
