If you’re like most programmers today, you’re expected to write modern looking, quick responding web apps with cross-browser (and cross-platform) capabilities. For this reason, client-side programming often accounts for a significant portion of coding time. Tools and technologies that help speed it up – while giving end users web apps that look and behave the way they expect – can be invaluable.
If you’re interested in learning more about jQuery, I recommend reading “Dive into jQuery, Part 1: A Refresher” by Duncan Kenzie, president of ExcelSystems, the company responsible for the product development and technical support of BCD products. This technical article is the first in a two-part instructional series that shows IBM i programmers how to use jQuery to build rich web apps for client access.
