› Find signed collectible books: 'ASP, ADO, and XML Complete'
For those using Microsoft tools ASP, ADO and XML Complete covers just about everything you need to create a dynamic Web site: server software, VBScript scripting, ActiveX Data Objects and the data metalanguage XML. Along the way you'll also learn about JScript, the basics of SQL, using VB to access databases, client-side scripting and a little about actually building a real world e-commerce site.
Considering how ASP, ADO and XML Complete has been created it all works surprisingly well. What Sybex has done is create a Franken-book from the salvaged parts of 10 or so existing titles. This helps to keep the price down, as does printing the book on cheaper, acid paper. Unfortunately, it also ensures the information in ASP, ADO and XML Complete is a little dated and despite the efforts of the editors you can all too often see the joins. Nevertheless, you will learn how to script ASP, how to design a suitable relational database structure to support your site and how to make it all work with ADO and SQL Server.
ASP, ADO and XML Complete is a good, information-rich and practically oriented introduction to building e-commerce and other dynamic sites with Microsoft tools. And, as most companies are reluctant to live on the bleeding edge of software technology, it could well be all you'll need. --Steve Patient [via]
