Example text

JavaScript is, in fact, a standardized language, whereas jQuery simply provides a collection of utility methods that aim to make solving common problems with JavaScript easier and more elegant across a wide range of browsers. jQuery is nothing more than a collection of web API wrapper methods. js, JavaScript is now a viable option on the server as well. In the following sections, I explain the significance of JavaScript, as a language, in the context of web development. Beyond jQuery does not have an explicit goal to dive deep into language syntax and core concepts such as inheritance and scope, though these forms of language details may appear at times throughout the book if there is a clear tie-in to the layer of abstraction offered by jQuery.

Js world, many of the pure JavaScript areas do transcend the browser. If you’re not quite sure about the differences between browser-specific JavaScript and JavaScript that is codified in the language specification (and useable outside of the browser), this will be discussed a bit more later on when I compare, contrast, and define the web API and the language of JavaScript. The important takeaway here is simply to understand that some of this book’s content will in fact apply to server-based JavaScript development.

Both interface definitions are available on the window object. Another well-known API specification with bindings to the Window interface is XMLHttpRequest,20 which defines a set of methods and properties used to communicate with a server asynchronously over HTTP. And in addition to new DOM API features, the HTML5 standard defines a large swath of the properties attached to window. One example is the History interface,21 which provides programmatic access to the browser’s history. This is exposed as a history object on window.
