Overview

Learn by doing! Follow along, step-by-step, as you upgrade a static HTML site that uses obsolete code to an XML standard-compliant, CSS-formatted dynamic site using Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP), Macromedia ColdFusion, or the open source PHP.

In this official Macromedia guide, you’ll learn how to:
  • Use a relational database—Microsoft Access or MySQL—as the driving force behind a site
  • Use Dreamweaver’s built-in server behaviors and application objects to assist in the rapid development of dynamic Web applications
  • Read and hand-code ASP VBScript, ColdFusion Markup Language, and PHP scripts well enough to understand how dynamic Web pages work, troubleshoot errors, and customize scripts
  • Collect and manipulate user-entered data, performing calculations on the fly
  • Use SQL to pass information between your pages and the database
  • Validate forms using client-side and server-side scripts

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
It’s not enough to be a web designer anymore: You must be comfortable around technologies like ASP, ColdFusion, or PHP. Fortunately, Dreamweaver isn’t just a web design tool anymore: nowadays, it’s a complete dynamic site development environment. Learn to use it that way. Read Macromedia Dreamweaver 8 with ASP, ColdFusion, and PHP: Training from the Source.

Straight from Macromedia Press, this well-crafted course will serve even beginners who’ve never programmed, built sites that access databases, or worked with dynamic sites. Here’s how it works: You’re handed a traditional static web site for a fictional travel tour operator. It’s your job to transform it into an interactive, easy-to-maintain, fully standards-compliant site that gives your visitors quicker access to the content they’re looking for. You’ll do everything from identifying your client’s needs through implementing an ongoing content management system.

You’ll start by importing and reviewing the existing site, gaining insight into the challenges static sites present, and the business/workflow issues a site redesign can resolve. You’ll prepare your existing HTML; create and apply CSS; build a reusable template for new pages; enhance accessibility with a hidden navigation layer; and define a dynamic site in Dreamweaver.

Then, step by step, you’ll learn the core skills of dynamic site development: passing data between pages; retrieving data from URLs; setting and retrieving cookies; sending email from web forms; and more. You’ll build a simple tour price calculator; then install, run, and use MySQL to provide secure database data. From filtering data to building search interfaces, authenticating users to building update pages, this book gives you the skills you need -- and the confidence to use them. Bill Camarda, from the December 2005 Read Only

    Highly recommended for starting out..

    This book is highly recommended for those webmasters who want to learn about writing asp, php or coldfusion dynamic pages. It is a very hands-on book, though it gives you just enough details- when necessary. I am flying through it simply because it is so well-written!
