From Barnes & NobleThis is a comprehensive tutorial and guide for programmers and developers. Active Server Pages 3.0 (ASP) is a powerful server-based technology and an integrated component in Windows 2000. Along with XML, ASP is Microsoft's web development future, geared for the development of dynamic, interactive and scalable web-based applications. This publication follows the same style and format as its popular predecessor Beginning Active Server Pages 2.0, but includes the latest features and enhancements incorporated in version 3.0 of ASP. Please be familiar with object-oriented concepts, web document development and HTML. It will help to know VBScript, but the book does contain a quick VBScript tutorial.
- Introduces dynamic web page concepts, shows how to write your first ASP example, then dives into basic ASP techniques and server and client side scripting concepts.
- Shows to create and declare variables and use ASP control structures.
- Details objects, properties, methods and events.
- Explains how to handle request and response objects, errors, applications, sessions and cookies.
- Covers scripting objects, ASP components and data store access, recordsets and advanced data handling techniques.
- Introduces the Wrox Classifieds Application, shows how to build script components, and explains transactions as part of the COM+ framework.
- Presents the Extensible Markup Language and shows how to create documents.
- Make no mistake, this thorough and comprehensive ASP tutorial is for web programmers and developers, not casual coders. Just like its predecessor, it is packed with solid information, diagrams and code needed by developers.
- The thirteen appendices contain additional information, ASP & ADO object models, forms, error codes and references.
- Information and support is available on the associated web site.
Once you master beginning ASP programming concepts, you will be ready for Professional Active Server Pages 3.0. You may also be interested in ASP guides and references for specific technologies such as Beginning ASP Databases, the sequel Professional ASP Databases, or the excellent supplement Beginning Components for ASP. Sooner or later you will also need to use XML. Any number of beginning tutorials are available, but there are a number of good advanced guides and references for programmers. Two excellent examples are Microsoft XML 2.0 Programmer's Guide and Software Development Kit and Designing Distributed Applications with XML, ASP, IE5, LDAP and MSMQ.
