ASP .NET plays a core role in the .NET architecture and strategy, including providing the underlying support for Web Services, and allows developers to exploit many of their current skills and experience, but gives them a brand new programming model to work with. It is streamlined, robust, flexible, and powerful - all of the things needed for real-world applications. "Moving to ASP .NET" provides focused and thorough guidance on creating Web applications using ASP .NET, including both Web Form applications and Web Services. Steve Harris and Rob Macdonald have worked extensively with .NET throughout the Beta program, and have gained real-world experience of creating and implementing ASP .NET applications. This book is targeted at current developers rather than novices, and assumes that readers will gain an understanding of companion technologies (such as VB .NET and ADO .NET) from other sources. However, appendices have been included that provide a brief review or introduction to each of these. "Moving to ASP .NET" provides in-depth discussion and examination of the topics that are of interest to current developers, and shows them how to make immediate use of ASP .NET.
Topics covered include Web Forms, server-side controls, mobile controls, data access and data binding, XML integration, .NET architecture and configuration, security, state and session management, designing for scalability, and Web Services. Extensive examples are shown throughout the book, and are also available via the Web for readers to access and download.
