Product Description

From the Back Cover

ASP.NET is Microsoft's popular technology for creating dynamic web sites that pull unique information for each visitor rather than showing everyone the same static HTML pages. The introduction of the exciting 2.0 version allows for a far easier relationship between data and ASP.NET than ever before. In this book, bestselling author John Kauffman and Microsoft ASP.NET data insider Bradley Millington guide you through the most important uses of ASP.NET—working with databases in your ASP.NET web sites.

As you progress from simple to more complex topics, you'll be introduced to the many additional ASP.NET and data connectivity tools that Microsoft's Web Platform and Tools team has released. Kauffman and Millington take you beyond the basics to discuss the permutations, pitfalls, and best practices that occur in real business scenarios.

What you will learn from this book

  • Fundamentals of connecting web pages to databases
  • The connections to Access, SQL Server, Oracle®, XML, and other data sources
  • Various tricks and traps for displaying data in grids, lists, and trees
  • How to allow users to change, add, and delete data
  • Techniques for creating data objects and events
  • Ways to handle data errors

Who this book is for

This book is for anyone who needs a web front-end or is looking to add data to a site. A comfortable level of understanding with ASP.NET version 1.x or ASP version 3.0 is recommended. Readers should also have some familiarity with databases.

Wrox Beginning guides are crafted to make learning programming languages and technologies easier than you think, providing a structured, tutorial format that will guide you through all the techniques involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete and Well Written Aug. 26 2006
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
ASP.NET 2.0 is Microsoft's latest version of the software to connect between the web and a database. The previous version of ASP.NET has been greatly simplified to produce the same results with much less code required.

This book presumes some experience with ASP and some experience with databases. Several different databases are covered in the book including Microsoft Access, SQL Server and SQL Server Express. The author recommends that you not use Access (and I agree). He points out that Access was not designed to scale to large applications. I'll point out that the SQL used in Access is quite different than that used in either version SQL Server. Switching from Access to SQL Server at a later time is a pain. (It took me several days to find out about all the differences and then a couple of weeks to change over a web site of about a hundred pages.)

This book is as complete an introduction to ASP.NET 2.0 as you're going to get. It's well written and complete. But don't get to thinking that you're going to have a full fledged dynamic web site up and running tomorrow. This is a programming language like any other. You'll have to learn how it works.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 and Databases (Wrox Beginning Guides) Nov. 4 2006
By Grady N. Mcghee - Published on Amazon.com
If you are absolute beginner then this is the book for you. Everything is primarily done with the wizards. If you are just beyond the beginner stage then I would suggest getting one of the WROX's ASP.NET 1.1 database books and this one. I found that most of the material in this book I could have easily found on the web. I wished they had combined the ASP.NET 1.1 books with this book which would have made it an all in one solution book.
