HASH(0xa20a9660) out of 5 stars Good reference in explaining XML Specific features of ASP.NET Jan. 29 2006
By David Neilsen - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was written with an emphasis on the new features built into ASP.NET 2.0 and XML. The book assumes experience with previous versions of ASP.NET 2.0 and XML but if you understand the basics of Web programming you shouldn't have any trouble.

It would be better if this book provides examples on VB.NET as well since the book completely focuses only on C#. And also it would be great to have some information on the below:

1. Instructions on solving the most common SQL access errors.

2. How to replace SQLExpress with SQL Server

HASH(0xa20d2630) out of 5 stars Good Book to understand xml 2.0 features Feb. 2 2006
By Anil - Published on
Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to anyone working on ASP.NET 2.0. XML is the integral part of .NET framework and used widely on all projects.

Book explains XML classes, Data Validation, XML transformation, XML and ADO.NET, Web Services and use of XML in Web.Config and Configuration files.

HASH(0xa20a9480) out of 5 stars ASP.NET 2.0 XML explained Feb. 28 2006
By Nicholas Cipollina - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book was very useful. It covered a wide variety of topics and explained most topics very well. I would have liked the book to get into some more subjects a little more in depth, but when you are covering so many topics that is a little difficult to do. This book did cover a lot of the new XML classes in the 2.0 framework. I would have liked some more info on the sql server 2005 xml stuff, particulary xquery. The book talked about OPENXML and even made the statement that you should use .nodes for these types of queries now. But it made no mention of how to do so. Overall, this was a very useful text.

HASH(0xa20d08f4) out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic book - well worth the money! Jan. 23 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Thiru Thangarathinam is one of the few authors out there who truly know how to teach and convey the knowledge they are presenting. The manner in which he approaches and expounds a topic should be formulated and used in all books. Most books these days simply show how to do the simplest of tasks and never provide real world scenarios. But guess what, in the real world your tasks are never that simple.

Thiru does a great job in not only showing "how to" but also provides best practice tips so that you know "when to", "when not to", "when you do be sure to". These are the things I need to know in the real world. Without a doubt this was one of the best technical books I have read in a while. I will definitely buy any future books that he authors. Glad to see he's a fellow Phoenician also!

HASH(0xa20d0f84) out of 5 stars Great For ASP.NET and its XML Features June 19 2006
By Tim Robinson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book covering the XML features of ASP.NET. It is very professional but, not for any beginner. It has the first 2 chapters which pretty much cover the basics but, throughout the rest of the book you need to know what you are doing. It is very detailed but is not really "step-by-step" like 1-2-3...It will walk you through how to do something through reading; so if your not one of those people who don't like to read, I wouldnt fully recommend this book to you. It shows a many screenshots in there so it makes it fairly simple to follow along. The book has almost 500 pages that are completely dedicated to the XML features of ASP.NET. If you are willing to take out the reading glasses and read a little bit. Overall, its an outstanding book!
