Abstract

Using mobile JavaScript and Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) can increase the interactivity of a dynamic Mobile Web site, mitigate its impact on a mobile network, and improve usability on smartphones and other devices with advanced mobile browsers. This chapter introduces client-side scripting using JavaScript and AJAX on supported mobile devices, providing development tips, code samples, and suggestions for avoiding common pitfalls. Of course, scripting functionality should be conditionally included in a Mobile Web page, allowing the page to maintain compatibility with older mobile browsers that do not support these advanced features.
