    no BPEL

    In pre-dot NET, ASP was a clever way to make dynamic web pages on a Microsoft web server. This book shows that under .NET, ASP has built on and extended that idea. As for instance, being able to do state management. A powerful idea that can be vital in building a complex web application and minimising the coding and debugging time. The book also covers XML usage. You can integrate this deeply into your application. Plus, XML is the basis of Web Services. The entire last section of the book (3 chapters) is devoted to this. On a forward looking note, Web Services offer exciting future innovations that can span many machines run by different companies. ASP is explained in the context of furnishing and using these Web Services. You also get an explanation of Web Service Description Language. The only failing of the book is that in going over WSDL, it omits to mention Business Process Execution Language. This has been out for over a year. It is far more expressive than WSDL in providing a declarative format for an aggregation of Web Services. Surely ASP can use BPEL?
