Debugging ASP.Net (Landmark)by Jonathan Goodyear
Synopses & Reviews
Debugging ASP.NET focuses on the various tools, techniques, and best practices associated with debugging ASP.NET web applications under Microsoft's new .NET platform. Brief descriptions of the problems with debugging previous versions of ASP are covered, as well as how the new features of ASP.NET can be exploited to their fullest to find and eliminate bugs quickly and easily. The book introduces changes to the code structure paradigm as implemented in the .NET platform, and how to structure ASP.NET code in this new paradigm to enable faster web application debugging.
Book News Annotation:
Directed toward experienced developers and project managers, this useful volume provides a resource for figuring out the bugs in your code. Readers should be familiar with developing ASP.NET web applications; all code examples are given in both Visual Basic.NET and C#. Among the skills taught here are the debugging tools available in ASP.NET, how to write code less susceptible to bugs, methods to remove bugs from large web applications, issues found in migrating traditional ASP web applications to ASP.NET, and locating bugs associated with specific parts of ASP.NET, including user controls, caching, ADO.NET, and web services.

Goodyear brings considerable expertise from his web site consulting work for such notable clients as Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Arthur Andersen, and the Home Shopping Network. He fills an information void by covering debugging for either ASP or ASP.NET. By relating numerous examples of real-world problems encountered and their coding solutions, this content will save programmers many hours and dollars.
