If you've been around the block with Active Server Pages, the odds are pretty good that you're welcoming ASP.NET. Yes, you'll have a lot to learn, but you may be chafing at the limitations of "classic" ASP. And it sure would be great to leverage your hard-won ASP skills in more sophisticated web applications and web services. In Inside ASP.NET, Scott Worley focuses on helping you do just that.
Writing for experienced ASP developers, he covers every significant aspect of ASP.NET development. You'll find detailed coverage of ADO.NET, which presents a new data access programming model that will be the foundation of all the data-aware applications you develop with .NET. There's in-depth coverage of ASP.NET's cool Web Forms, which finally bring the "Visual"-whatever forms-based paradigm to web software development.
The book's nuts-and-bolts coverage includes state management, XML support, component services, messaging and directory services, application localization and globalization, the creation of custom controls, and even development for mobile devices. There's plenty of source code -- and the book ends with a complete "online task management" case study application designed to drive home all of the book's key concepts. (Bill Camarda)
