Pro Asp.net 1.1 Web Forms Techniques 2ND Editionby Alex Homer
Synopses & Reviews
This book aims to examine the possibilities for developing user interfaces that are driven by ASP.NET. It attempts to discuss and explore a range of techniques and approaches predominantly for creating Web sites and Web pages. This edition has been completely updated for ASP .NET 1.1 and Visual Studio 2003.
Homer shows readers how to build a site that allows the user to choose, customize and purchase a new car or truck from the world-famous Xrox Car Company. To do so, he focuses on the steps of requirements-analysis and design (though not in extreme detail), followed by planning and mapping out the site.
Once the basic design in its place, Pro ASP.NET Web Forms Techniques, Second Edition will take a look at the development of the various resources that make up the complete site. It wona (TM)t concentrate on the backend data processing tasks in any more detail than needed in order to get the site running. This book concentrates on the user interfaces, and using fairly simple data access techniques. You won't see detailed discussions of the workings of all of the .NET data access classes, or the long diatribes on catching and reporting concurrency errors.
ASP.NET makes it easy to create interactive and intuitive interfaces for Web applications, and attractive and exciting Web pages. The server-based post-back architecture, combined with the comprehensive array of server controls that are provided as part of the .NET Framework, allow developers to quickly build browser-based interfaces for Web sites and Web applications - using much the same event-driven approach as in traditional executable programs developed in languages like Visual Basic, Delphi and C++.
You will discover the possibilities for developing user interfaces driven by ASP.NET. Author Alex Homer explores techniques and approaches to create attractive, full-featured, and easy-to-use websites and web pages. Further, these web pages will be interactive where appropriate, loosely based on real-world scenarios, and able to fulfill predefined requirements.
This book provides what other books often skimp on: Homer concentrates on site requirement analysis, and design. Then he supports this by discussing site planning and mapping. This well-organized book prevents you from developing your site in a haphazard, unpredictable mannerwhich makes site development and maintenance so much more difficult Even the most simplistic starting plan can reduce development and maintenance time, and help you dodge the frustrations resulting from the ?no plan? approach.
