    learn both VS 2005 and ASP.NET 2

    Microsoft continues to refine its Active Server Pages. Now, under .NET, we have ASP.NET 2.0. Designed to handle large scale commercial websites. In tandem with this, Mueller demonstrates how Microsoft offers Visual Studio in its 2005 version, as the preferred front end to ASP.NET. The book is perhaps best read as a complementary exposition of Visual Studio and ASP. Hence, it goes into the important ideas of a master page and themes, which are new features of ASP 2. Since you are inherently dealing with dynamic HTML pages, then a master page is a very logical factoring out of a common look for a set of pages. Mueller points out that the emphasis is on your bottom line. Use of these can save you development time. As well as producing more robust code, because by centralising, there is less chance of error when manually maintaining many pages. The chapter on client side scripting can be useful. Though unlike master pages or themes, the scripting is mostly unchanged from earlier versions of ASP, since it pertains to JavaScript. If you are planning a large website, chances are you will need a back end database. In the context of this book, the preferred choice is supplied by Microsoft - SQL Server. So Mueller furnishes a good tutorial on using Visual Studio to connect your ASP pages to an instance of SQL Server. Also, with the continued danger of attacks, the book shows how to sterilise data that a user would type into one of your pages. Vital in stopping SQL injections or any attempt to access the operating system. Here, the use of Validators in ASP is a great help, in reducing what you have to write. The only quibble is that Mueller could have used the term SQL injection, as that is the common description of many of these attacks. The heft of the book reflects Mueller's coverage of these and other topics. All of which are nowadays necessary to developing a website.
