Product Description

From Amazon

Microsoft has a whole collection of Web technologies that together enable you to create sites involving attractively formatted text and graphics, animation, user interaction, and remote database connectivity. Visual InterDev serves as the workbench at which developers tie these technologies together, and Mastering Web Application Development Using Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 does a fine job of introducing its readers to the power of that development environment.

The authors structure their content as a self-paced class, in which they present lots of raw documentation of Visual InterDev and its capabilities in the form of detailed procedures, lists of options, code samples, and screen shots. They manage to avoid the droning style that characterizes many books about development environments, however, by interspersing their descriptive information with lab activities. The activities would be better if they allowed more variation--sometimes they're just explicit recipes that must be followed exactly--but they do provide readers with a hands-on introduction to features that might otherwise prove baffling.

The description-and-exercise approach extends beyond the authors' coverage of the Visual InterDev environment itself. Readers learn how to use VBScript--both for client-side scripting tasks and for creating Active Server Pages (ASP)--in the same manner. Coverage of the language isn't comprehensive, and neither is coverage of Component Object Model (COM) component creation, but it's enough to introduce readers to Visual InterDev's advanced features. More advanced references can build on the knowledge readers acquire from this book. --David Wall

Topics covered: Visual InterDev 6, VBScript on the client and server sides, Active Server Pages (ASP), Microsoft data-access technologies, Component Object Model (COM) components, and Microsoft Transaction Server.

3.0 out of 5 stars Have you taken the Mastering Course? Sept. 8 1999
By A Customer - Published on
If you have taken the Microsoft course #1017 "Mastering Web Application Development Using VI6" DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! It is EXACTLY the same material. I gave it three stars because the material is good but if you are looking for a reference in addition to the Mastering course, this is not it. I am extremely dissapointed that they do not tell you this before you order the book so I am here to warn you all.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Outline Style Book April 4 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This book gives only outline rathen than details. And the sentence appears most is "For more information on XXXX, see XXXX in Visual InterDev Help". A beginner should not buy it for its lack of details and examples. A advanced developer should not buy it either for its lack of reference value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs a technical editor April 13 2000
By A Customer - Published on
This book is terrible. The Labs are fraught with errors. I am very dissapointed that Microsoft Press would put out such a book about a product (VI) that they sell. They must not have had a technical editor go through the book. Don't waste your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tutorial on Web Development March 18 2001
By ClassicalMusicLover - Published on
I found this book to be just what it's title says, how to develop a web application using Visual InterDev 6.0. This book takes you one step at a time developing a sample web application which uses an SQL server database and server side COM components. Along the way you learn how to use Visual InterDev, Active Server Pages, integrate VBScript into your web pages, connect to a server database using ADO, creating COM objects that access the server database, calling the COM components from an Active Server Page. Yes, this book uses Microsoft technologies as I would have expect since it is published by Microsoft Press. If you are going to use Microsoft's IIS as your web server than this book is an excellent one to learn overall web application development. Otherwise, this book is not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for filling in the blanks Nov. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on
As an ASP developer that has moved from developing in notepad to Visual Interdev, this book helps answer some of the questions about the different toolbars. I believe the exercises and labs are well written and thought out. If you read this book without doing the labs you might as well be reading a Harry Potter book.
