jQuery a great tool for any ServerSide Scripting Language


One of the most used framework for making your web application more live, interactive. There is been a while since I run into it, but recently I decided to use it. Main reason is when i saw the sits that actually use the jQuery framework. Take a look here and you ll be suprised by the big company names.

The are limitations using it. Some of these are, the old LightBox2, now its called Thickbox (a pluggin for jQuery framework). But there is a workaround to bypass working with multiple frameworks here. If you decide that you could use some of its DHTML goodies also forget your page CSS style, in most cases the pluggins require *{margin:0;padding:0} to work correctly. If you are one of those CSS gurus that already use this in your web page it no issue.

Dont forget to check out “15 days of jQuery”. Nice demonstrations using jQuery framework.Also see some more advanced jQuery pluggins here.
