Overview

ASP.NET 2.0 Programming: Problem Design Solution is aimed at describing, designing, and implementing a site much like the ones you’re probably working on or will be soon, while taking the opportunity to introduce and explain many of the new features that the new great ASP.NET 2.0 framework offers. Difficult problems are addressed head-on so you'll be ready for most of the problems you’ll typically face when writing a modern website, and have one or more solutions ready for them.

Unlike many other ASP.NET books that show examples for individual pages or features, the example in this book is an integrated end-to-end site (written in C#). The entire book and site has been written specifically for ASP.NET 2.0, to use the ASP.NET 2.0 features wherever they make sense.

The end-result is a website which features a layout with user-selectable themes, a membership system, a content management system for publishing and syndicating articles and photos, polls, mailing lists, forums, an e-commerce store with support for real-time credit card processing, homepage personalization, and localization. The book leads the reader through development of a site with:

  • Account registration, personalization and theming
  • News and events, organized into categories
  • Opinion polls
  • Newsletter
  • Forums
  • E-commerce store with shopping cart and order management
  • Localization
Administration of a site will be covered including:
  • Full online back-end administrative section, to manage practically all data from an intuitive user interface
  • Site deployment
In building these site features, you'll learn these new ASP.NET 2.0 features:
  • Master pages
  • Theming
  • Personalization & Web parts
  • Membership & Profile modules
  • Personalization
  • The new server-side UI controls such as GridView, DetailsView, FormView, Wizard, MultiView, the new xxxDataSource and navigation controls, among others.
  • The new compilation mode and deployment modes
  • The new framework for instrumenting the site, as well as handling & logging exceptions
  • The new ADO.NET 2.0 features (e.g. caching with database dependency)
  • The new classes for easy distributed transactions Management

This book is also available as part of the 5-book ASP.NET 2.0 Wrox Box (ISBN: 0-470-11757-5). This 5-book set includes:

  • Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition (ISBN: 0-470-04178-1)

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
This book is different from most others you can find in bookstores. Most offerings in this area are mainly reference books that dissect every little detail of version 2.0 of ASP.NET or the .NET Framework and that – in the best cases – provide a short listing to illustrate each feature. Marco’s book has a radically different approach: he explains how you can assemble all ASP.NET 2.0’s features and leverage its power to design, develop, and deploy a full-featured Web site. Don’t be fooled by the TheBeerHouse being a fictitious site for a fictitious customer: if the main differences between a sample application and a real-world Web site are the performance, security, robustness, scalability, and care for details that you expect from a commercial site, then Marco’s TheBeerHouse is more real-world than most real-world sites I have seen recently.

In fact, unlike most real site authors, Marco was able to take all the time he needed to implement an impressive list of features and fix all the bugs he bumped into. And unlike most sample application authors, he never took a shortcut and never ignored the problems that developers have to solve every day in the real world. For sure, the overall quality exceeds what you might expect from a mere “book sample” and, as of this writing, it’s the best demonstration of ASP.NET 2.0’s new features, including Microsoft’s own starter kits.

From a teaching perspective, the great value of this book is the rationale underlying all the design and implementation decisions taken in the development phase. Marco does more than just describing what he did: he lists the pros and cons of all the alternatives he tried out and explains how he found the perfect solution (or the best compromise) to each problem. It’s like having an expert sitting besides you, able to read your mind, and ready to fix your mistakes before you have a chance to make them. Can you ask for more?— Francesco Balena, author of widely popular Microsoft Press books.

    A reviewer

    I have to echo another reviewers point, Reading the title and table of contents I found nowhere that it said it was only C# What happened to VB. I am a VB programmer and I feel we are a dying breed, No one writes books with VB everything is C# which I can use but I am not as familiar with the syntax. It would be great if they could write the book like sitepoints 'Build your own Asp.Net Website using VB and C#' by Zak Ruvalcaba I find that to be very helpful if not only to show both languages so the reader can see the differences or use the language they are most comfortable with

    USES C# - NOT VB!

    Nowhere in the description of the book above does it state this, but this book uses C# and not VB. Since I was looking specifically for a VB book, this wasn't that helpful. It looked like a very helpful book and I do wish it was available using VB examples.
