Books on Ajax Design

Hi all

I was wondering if anyone could recommend good books or other resources on designing AJAX applications ? I am looking primarily for the principles behind designing and modelling the AJAX interactions rather than specifically how to perform a particular technical function.

Naturally, if these resources use RoR or even another MVC framework for illustration, then that will be just dandy :wink: - but it's not a requirement. I have found that there are plenty of good resources from a technical Rails POV that give detailed guidance on how to implement AJAX-type behaviour, but few give a comprehensive overall view of the design principles.

Thanks for any help

There's many books about ajax, maybe you should try googling or visit
some blog sites here like {^M_E^}

"Object Oriented Antioxide"

Ajax Design Patterns (O'Rielly): http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/ajaxdp/
Ajax on Rails (O'Rielly): http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/9780596527440/

I have the latter and it has several good insights that are
independent of Rails.

I enjoyed Pragmatic Ajax.
