Book Description

June 15 2002 Programmer to Programmer
What is this book about?

For a web site to offer its users an experience that improves on that of newspapers or textbooks, it needs a way to change the information it contains dynamically - and that means it needs access to a data source. Through the combination of ASP.NET and ADO.NET, Microsoft provides everything necessary to access, read from, and write to a database, and then allow web users to view and manipulate that data from a web browser. In this book, we'll show you how it's done.

What does this book cover?

Packed with clear explanations and hands-on examples, Beginning ASP.NET Databases contains everything you'll need on your journey to becoming a confident, successful programmer of data-driven web sites. In particular, we'll look at:

  • Connecting to common data sources, including SQL Server and MS Access
  • Reading data with data reader and dataset objects
  • Creating and deleting records, and editing data
  • Displaying data with ASP.NET's web server controls
  • Writing and using stored procedures from VB.NET code
  • Placing your data access code in reusable class libraries

The book closes with a real-world case study that consolidates the tutorials throughout the book into a practical result.

Who is this book for?

To use this book, you need a computer running either Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional Edition. The examples it contains will not run on Windows XP Home Edition.

This book is for people who have some experience of programming ASP.NET with Visual Basic .NET, are familiar with the operation of the .NET Framework, and want to learn how to use ASP.NET to make data-centric web applications. No prior knowledge of database programming is necessary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating Experience June 16 2004
Format:Paperback
I've been reading some of the other reviews on this page, and I can't believe they are reading the same book. I have had problems running the code in several of these exercises, particularly with any code that has the DataGrid control. I've also noticed I'm not the only with this problem, since I have browsed the Wrox website forums and found others who were having the same problems with the code. I even submitted code from Chapter 3, page 67 to Microsoft Support, after receiving nothing but a blank page when I ran it. Microsoft noticed that the code was MISSING a required clause! The exercise in question is the FIRST exercise in the book. If the first exercise you attempt fails even though you made no typos, it's frustrating. I can easily see a novice programmer getting discouraged and giving up. I'm an experienced ASP programmer and even I was getting fed up!
I've been a big fan of other books by Wrox, but this one leaves a lot to be desired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow June 14 2004
Format:Paperback
I have enough programming books that if weighed would weigh as much as a car.
I love this book.
The best part is that I can read it and follow the examples without having to sit at my computer.
The key word in the title is beginning. I have found it to be a great foundation book on its subject matter.
The authors should get an atta boy for this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginers... Good reference May 13 2004
Format:Paperback
This was my first book on .NET and I think it was a great tool to help me learn the basics of database programming. After building on the basic concepts it goes on into deeper knowledge and real world examples. This book was the only resource I used to not only get started but to continue using as my desktop reference. The book has lots of examples and it's very detailed on the explanations. The authors have a clear and concise style that does not overwhelm the reader with extremely complex details. I recommend this book if you are a beginer on ASP.NET and I also think it serves as a good refenrece.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly ADO.NET, very little ASP.NET March 19 2004
Format:Paperback
I was very disappointed with this book. Yes, it's useful for understanding the new ADO.NET objects, but then keeps it's focus on RDBMS design instead of relating how to usefully implement ADO within an ASP.NET application, which is what I wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Nov. 25 2003
Format:Paperback
The book is superb. It is filled with WORKING examples. I am currently on page 121 and every example so far has worked flawlessly. The book has one "voice", even though it is written by several authors.
The examples are standalone. Within the first several pages I was up and running with a straightforward, well-explained aspx file. I had absolutely no problems connecting to any of the databases. The book starts out with a couple primer chapters and then the connection object, and shows you how to connect to an Access database, and Excel spreadsheet, a SQL Server (MSDE) database and an XML file. From then on it primarily works with MSDE and the Northwind database.
There are NO surprises here. Every example has obviously been combed through and there is a welcome amount of reinforcement.
Just to reiterate, the examples are standalone. The is one of the absolute best aspects of a beginner's book.
I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be able to try out some code and on the first try get it to work. I would estimate that 75% of all computer books screw up that concept.
I've been scouring bookstores for months looking for a good beginner's ASP.Net book, and have bought a couple of stinkers. Luckily, I happened to browse the bookstore and found this, scanned some of the very-well-written first couple of chapters actually thought there must have been some "catch" because it was so well written. So I decided to buy it and try it out, kind of planning to return it to the bookstore because of my past bad experience with asp.net books.
The book quality is excellent. It is a smallish tech book (459 pages) and the paper is very light and easy to flip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginning! Feb. 2 2003
Format:Paperback
I found this book very useful just like any other Wrox book. It has everything one needs to start learning .Net database applications. I have not tried the code but the explanations are helpful. The thing I like the most was list of sequential steps needed to perform a task before any example. It really breaks down the whole exercise into some meaningful steps and helps one follow the example clearly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Full of tips and best-practice methodologies Oct. 4 2002
Format:Paperback
Accessing databases and datastores via the internet is becoming commonplace today. This book gives developers the fundamentals of what databases are, how to connect to them with ADO.NET, how to access/manipulate the database information and, especially, how to present it in meaningful ways using ASP.NET controls and VB.NET. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to grow beyond static-content web pages and begin development of data-driven web applications.
Written by a team of 10 professionals with different areas of expertise, this book provides a solid foundation for creating web applications that rely on creating, modifying, and displaying information accessed from an SQL database, although the source can be any data repository that has an OLEDB or ODBC driver written for it. Filled with many rich examples, both in the text and in the hands-on exercises, the authors go beyond the "this is the code you need to insert" paradigm and explain what each section of code is doing, reinforcing lessons learned from earlier examples as necessary. The exercises can either be typed in or run from source downloaded from the WROX Press website, both are error-free. The book is full of tips and best-practice methodologies, with an entire chapter devoted to performance considerations. The exercises were tested on students in a school lab and common mistakes are presented in a section of each chapter. WROX Press also has multiple levels of support available to those who need it. The book finally culminates in a "real world" online-auction application that covers all the bases and gives comprehensive substance to the theory and examples previously presented. ---Reveiwed by William S.
