Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional | ISBN: 0321257278 | Edition 2004 | CHM | 672 pages | 9.43 MB
This is not just a reference book but also a feature-packed exploration of version 2.0 of ASP.NET. It covers the changes between ASP.NET 1.x and ASP.NET 2.0 that make it even easier to build efficient, attractive, and interactive Web sites and Web applications using the new features in ASP.NET, while considerably reducing developer effort and code requirements.
The first chapter presents an overview of the new version and also lays out the roadmap for the remainder of the book. The following chapters discuss how the common requirements of developers have been addressed, starting with the ubiquitous need to access data from your pages and then progressing through to a detailed look at the new configuration and management features that version 2.0 provides.
Along with the final release of ASP.NET 2.0 we will, of course, see a new version of Visual Studio and other tools. While we do include some details of the new version of Visual Studio, called Visual Studio 2005, the book does not concentrate on this area. Many developers will be writing ASP.NET pages using other tools (including, we suspect, a text editor) while Visual Studio 2005 is still under development.
