From the Back Cover

Now you can uncover the secrets behind accessing and retrieving data from a wide range of data sources such as SQL Server and XML sources. This book walks you through the array of ADO.NET 2.0 features and clearly shows you how they can be used to develop database-driven web applications in ASP.NET.

You'll first gain an in-depth understanding of the data source controls that enable data binding in the ASP.NET platform. Next you'll uncover the advanced features of ASP.NET, including site navigation, implementing sorting and paging, and editing data in templates. You'll then focus on designing transactions in ADO.NET 2.0, displaying data, and utilizing SQL Server 2005 XML.

Throughout the chapters, you'll find examples and source code that you can integrate into your applications. This will enable you to leverage ADO.NET and ASP.NET features so you can easily create a scalable N-Tier web site.

24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Frank Stepanski on February 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
There are many ASP.NET 2.0 books on the market now, but they either come in two categories: The beginner who knows another server-side technology (ASP or PHP or even Java) or the advanced who wants to knows about web services or XML implementations or advanced web architecture. I have not found a book that is a solid intermediate ASP.NET 2.0 book on teaching the reader solid, real-life database applications, until now. This book fills in the gaps of so many other books out there on ASP.NET that it really should be the 2nd ASP.NET book you get. If you're already familiar with ASP.NET then this should be your first book. Because pretty much after you know how to use the basic controls and create some master pages and maybe some web parts you really know as much as the majority of the basic ASP.NET developer. This book by Thiru Thangarathinam really gives you a great understanding of "real-world" implementations of ASP.NET applications using any type of database.

Like any book, there always will be an introduction on the technology taught, so basically the first three chapters caters to refresh the reader on this technology. Chapter 1 introduces the ASP.NET 2.0 technology and terminology, the new data controls, how master pages work, and web parts framework. Chapter 2 is a very important chapter because it sets the stage for later chapters focusing on ADO.NET. You do not know how many books I have gone through trying to find a book with anything more than 20 pages on ADO.NET. It amazes me that no book (other than this one), really takes the time and explains this corroborating technology in detail when talking about ASP.NET. Yes, I have seen the pure ADO.NET books out there, but they put most of the explanation towards Windows forms, not web forms.

Nice book, it covers everything I expected, there is already a 4.0 version of Asp but as long as I use 2.0 this book has everything about gridviews,formviews and other asp 2.0 data-base related controls.
Buying this used was very good deal :)
