About the book:

A revolution in developing software is coming and it's called the .NET Framework. This broad Microsoft strategy opens doors to exciting new concepts such as Web services, which deliver the software you create as services that dish out data via XML over the Net. ASP.NET and ADO.NET are very key elements to this new approach, improving the efficiency of Web page coding and database access respectively. Programming Data-Driven Web Applications with ASP.NET provides an excellent introduction to this brave new world of database-driven Web development for seasoned and novice programmers alike.

The book dives into ASP.NET with a breakdown of its new features such as server side controls and event handling, Web services and session state management. It then clearly points out the advantages of ADO.NET--interoperability, a strong-typed programming model, higher disconnected performance and better scalability. Readers will learn about managed providers, get a tutorial on ANSI SQL and the nitty gritty of database access. Plenty of example code is presented in both Visual Basic.NET and C#.

The book explains how XML and SOAP--the protocol for exchanging XML data--work together as the transmission mechanism behind the scenes of .NET applications. The centrepiece of this new architecture is the Web services feature and this text covers this powerful Web-callable interface well. ASP.NET and ADO.NET require somewhat of a new programming mindset from previous coding platforms but this easy to read tutorial provides an easy entry point. --Stephen W. Plain
