Overview

ASP in a Nutshell provides the high-quality reference documentation that web application developers really need to create effective Active Server Pages. It focuses on how features are used in a real application and highlights little-known or undocumented features.
This book also includes an overview of the interaction between the latest release of Internet Information Server (version 5) and ASP 3.0, with an introduction to the IIS object model and the objects it comprises. The examples shown in this section and throughout the book are illustrated in VBScript.
The main components of this book are:
Active Server Pages Introduction. Brief overview of the ASP application paradigm with examples in VBScript. Also included is an introduction to Microsoft's Internet Information Server 5.0, the IIS object model, and the objects that it comprises.
Object Reference. Each object is discussed in the following manner: descriptions, properties, collections, methods, events, accessory files/required DLLs, and remarks, including real-world uses, tips and tricks, and author's experience (where applicable). The objects--Application, Response, Request, Server, Session, ObjectContext, and ASPError, as well as ASP Directives, Global.ASA, and Server-Side Includes--all follow this paradigm.
Component Reference. This section follows the same paradigm found in Object Reference. The discussion covers all of the additional components included with IIS, such as ActiveX Data Objects, the Ad Rotator, the Browser capabilities component, the File System Object, and more.
Appendixes. Gives examples in one or two objects and components using Perl, REXX, and Python in ASP.
Like other books in the "In a Nutshell" series this book offers the facts, including critical background information, in a no-nonsense manner that users will refer to again and again. It is a detailed reference that enables even experienced web developers to advance their ASP applications to new levels.

    The only ASP 'classic' title you'll ever need

    This is truly an excellent book. I have read both editions and loved them. This is the only ASP 'classic' title that you will ever need and I can assure you from experience that the examples definitely work. The Wrox books dwell on trivial subjects ad nauseum. If you have experience with programming, you can plough through this and start writing good ASP code in no time. If you pick up VBScript in a Nutshell, you will be unstoppable in your ASP coding.

    requires more reading

    this book is good for people who already have some knowledge about asp. i wouldn't recommend it for beginners. it requires a lot of reading and there is so much text written to actually extract some meaningful iformation.

    A Good Start

    I never saw asp code before and with this book I understand and was able to make a family tree site for my family.

    Excellent reference book on ASP

    This is a good starting point. All you need is PWS and have some understanding of HTML with VB scripting and this will put in right path. Good examples as well. This book has been sitting on my shelves for a year. I just have been waiting for the right time to apply ASP. And in no time I was supporting DB server for our dept's web page.

    Better books available

    I have purchased three other ASP programming books before reading this one. After reviewing the code samples in this book, I can not recommend this book be used by anyone serious about programming. The sample code does not work and the advice is either outdated or simply wrong. It is painfully obvious that this coder has very little time actually using the code.
