Developing Asp Components 1ST Editionby Shelley Powers
Synopses & Reviews
The popularity of Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology is growing rapidly. Part of the reason is ASP's flexibility: the output of ASP scripts is most commonly HTML, which is included in the text stream returned to the client, making it a convenient way of creating browser-independent web content. But an additional reason--and one that will become more and more important over time, as web applications replace web pages--is its extensibility. And the most effective way to extend ASP is to develop custom ASP components.
However, the techniques for developing custom ASP components, along with the snags and pitfalls of developing custom components, are not well documented. In addition, to successfully develop ASP components one must be a jack-of-all-trades: programming requires some knowledge of COM, of threading models, and of the ASP object model, as well as a mastery of one or more language tools and development environments.
That's where Developing ASP Components comes in. The first section of the book explores the topics all developers need to know to develop components for ASP effectively:
Because more and more developers find themselves using more than a single language tool, the remaining three sections of the book each focus on ASP component development using any of the three major development tools: Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft Visual C++ and the ActiveX Template Library (ATL), and Microsoft J++. Each section carefully focuses on the issues that concern the ASP component developer who is using that particular development environment. These include:
This thorough coverage of the background information needed for developing ASP components, as well as its focus on the component development in each of three major development environments, makes Developing ASP Components the definitive resource for the ASP application and component developer.
Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) is rapidly gaining in popularity because of its extensibility. And the most effective way to extend ASP is to develop custom ASP components. Bridging the documentation gap, this book covers techniques for developing ASP components, including the inevitable snags and pitfalls. It explores: The configuration of the ASP development environmentASP components and the Component Object Model (COM)ASP components and threading modelsASP components and the Microsoft Transaction ServerThe objects, properties, methods, and events in the ASP object model This book focuses on ASP component development using any of the three major development tools: Visual Basic, Visual C++ (and the ATL), and J++. It covers accessing ASP's intrinsic objects, accessing data using OLE DB or ADO, creating n-tier web applications with VB, handling persistence using MFC with Visual C++/ATL, and accessing native code from J++. "Developing ASP Components is the definitive resource for the ASP application and component developer.
Designing Active Server Pages is for developers who have already mastered the basics of ASP application development and are ready to take the next logical step. It shows how to create powerful, reusable ASP pages. It also covers various Microsoft and third-party components that can enhance the power and versatility of ASP pages. This book is sure to become an indispensable part of every web developer's library.
