Mastering JavaScript serves both as a tutorial that will introduce you to JavaScript and as a resource that demonstrates how to use JavaScript in a variety of practical applications. With so many books about JavaScript available, what distinguishes Mastering JavaScript is primarily its scope. It covers not just language fundamentals but advanced topics such as using JavaScript to invoke Java methods or manipulate the behavior of Netscape plug-ins; taking advantage of JavaScript 1.2 capabilities introduced in Netscape Communicator and Navigator 4.0, including the ability to manipulate overlapping layers of content and to specify JavaScript-accessible style sheets; and using server-side JavaScript and interfacing JavaScript with CGI. James Jaworski writes more for moderately experienced programmers than for HTML coders who want to expand their skills, but his writing is clear and enjoyable.
