Overview

Since its release in 1998, Visual Basic 6 has become one of the world's most popular programming languages, with over 3 million programmers having used it to build Windows based applications. Its success in the programming world can be ascribed to a combination of its accessibility, productivity, and power; VB6 comes with a robust, intuitive development environment that provides an ideal entry point for the novice, yet supports features that the more experienced developer needs to build sophisticated enterprise level applications. Wrox has, since our inception, striven to build an understanding of the programmer community and deliver books that give the professional the knowledge they need to succeed in the workplace. This is particularly true in VB6 where a stream of respected titles have established our credibility.

So, to support today's VB6 practitioner who knows that they need to get the most from VB6 (while appreciating that they need to be aware of the potential of VB.NET), this book takes the collected Wrox knowledge in 4 major areas (data access, component development, server side programming, and XML), distills it and brings it bang up to date to deliver a VB6 programmer's resource. Completely new content in the areas of VB6 application architecture, SOAP and Web Services, and how to develop VB6 applications in the light of .NET ensures this title places VB6 programming in a contemporary context. Furthermore, the book comes with a CD of hand picked case studies selected from previous books, access to the original books via the online WroxBase technology, along with novel appendices on VB6 Tips and Tricks and application packaging and deployment tools.

This book is for the intermediate VB6 programmer looking for the essential pieces of information that will help them to deliver powerful VB6 solutions today. Not only does this compendium address such important topics as ADO, COM+, ASP, and SOAP it will also provide an insight into what you need to do to equip your VB6 applications for the .NET wave.
