Amazon.com Review

A revolution in developing software is coming and it's called the .NET Framework. This broad Microsoft strategy opens doors to exciting new concepts such as Web services, which deliver the software you create as services that dish out data via XML over the Net. ASP.NET and ADO.NET are key elements to this new approach, improving the efficiency of Web page coding and database access respectively. Programming Data-Driven Web Applications with ASP.NET provides an excellent introduction to this brave new world of database-driven Web development for seasoned and novice programmers alike.

The book dives into ASP.NET with a breakdown of its new features such as server side controls and event handling, Web services and session state management. It then clearly points out the advantages of ADO.NET--interoperability, a strong-typed programming model, higher disconnected performance, and better scalability. Readers will learn about managed providers and get a tutorial on ANSI SQL and the nitty gritty of database access. Plenty of example code is presented in both Visual Basic.NET and C#.

The book explains how XML and SOAP--the protocol for exchanging XML data--work together as the transmission mechanism behind the scenes of .NET applications. The centerpiece of this new architecture is the Web services feature, and this text covers this powerful Web-callable interface well. ASP.NET and ADO.NET require somewhat of a new programming mindset from previous coding platforms, but this easy-to-read tutorial provides an easy entry point. --Stephen W. Plain

Topics covered: .NET overview, ADO.NET managed providers, data binding, DataGrid control, templates, Web form server controls, validation controls, editing and filtering data, XML and SOAP, BLOB uploading and displaying, Web services, authentication, data caching, ASP.NET reference, and ADO.NET reference.

From the Back Cover

Programming Data-Driven Web Applications with ASP.NET provides readers with a solid understanding of ASP.NET and how to effectively integrate databases with their Web sites. The key to making information instantly available on the Web is integrating the Web site and the database to work as one piece. The authors teach this using ASP.NET, server-side controls, ADO+, XML, and SOAP. The authors will teach readers how to manage data by using ASP.NET forms, exposing data through ASP+ Web Services, working with BLOBs, and using cookies and other features to secure their data.

Doug and Donny are the most plainclothes writers out there on the market today???and I mean this with the most sincere of praise. Each possesses an uncanny knack for explaining the most complex of technical topics in an easy-to-follow manner, appealing to the newbie or otherwise non-expert reader. And they consistently manage to do this while not alienating the advanced developer audience at the same time. Throughout this book, their genius is on display.
I???m President of an ASP.NET User Group, and this title is on my ???Must Have??? list for books to get.
This should be THE book you buy after going through an initial title for an introduction into .NET programming, as it will pay for itself many times over in your usage. I???ve heard people discount the book???s concept because they unfairly felt it was just literary regurgitation of every other .NET title???s chapter(s) on using ADO.NET to perform data access, stretched out into an entire book. Nothing could be further from the truth. The book offers so much more into getting past simple code constructs and really optimizing the management of your data. Through this concept, the reader gains a greater understanding of the .NET Framework.
Doug and Donny???s use of product knowledge, humor, and real-world applicability is equally enticing, educational, and entertaining. While the book is by its nature top-heavy in ASP.NET data access concepts, it also tackles some of other common concerns, like working with BLOBs, XML, data caching, authentication, and validation. Such is not commonly found in many traditional data access texts, and is a very welcome value-added change.

First off, I have to say, this book is great! I am a devloper with a VB and ASP backgroud, and this is the first book I have bought on ASP.NET. I was very surprised to find that all of the code samples in the book are given in both C# and Visual Basic.Net. As a VB person interested in learning C#, seeing the code samples in both made it very easy for me to learn ASP.NET with databases and C# at the same time.
The authors did a great job introducing each topic, and then jumping right into a code demonstration. This made it very easy for me to pick up the concepts quickly. This is 700+ pages of technical material on ASP.NET, ADO.NET, DataGrids, Authentication, Web Serviece, etc., that read very quickly...and it was fun! I'd definitely buy any book by these authors.

This book covers most of the basic techniques an ASP.NET data access application would utilize. There are a few more advanced techniques, but if you are at that level this book may be a bit simple for you. I especially like the way the authors take a basic example and keep expanding on it with new techniques. This learning pattern mirrors the way a lot of developers learn.
I wish I would have had access to a book like this in the spring of 2001 as I had to learn a lot of this stuff by trial and error. If you are just getting started, this book will save you a lot of time in getting up to speed. Plus it is nice that all examples are given in both VB.NET and C#, especially at this stage in the adoption of the .NET platform where developers are still trying to determine which language to learn.

Format: Paperback
Although a good book, most of what is provided is not anything that is going to TEACH a seasoned programmer anything. Most of the code is written in the HTML page with very little code-behind examples. Yes, I know when it works in one, it works in the other, but one of the most important things about ASP.NET and the .NET initiative is the separation of the code from the user interface. Promotes reusability, readability, yadda, yadda, yadda. Some credit must be given to the book however, in that it does cover VERY important topics of ASP.NET and it does give the code in VB.NET and in C#. The code and the samples are very simple though, so be aware that if you're looking to do more than get an overview, you'll miss the mark on this one.

To a serious developer, nothing is more valuable than nicely annotated code examples. This 704-page book is packed with code, with each example in both C# and VB. I bought this book together with ASP.NET: Tips, Tutorials, and Code (also by Mack and Seven plus others). Between the two I have a nice library to draw on for help on my current .NET development project. For example this book had nice examples for storing and handling images as blobs in SQL Server. I built an application to store, display, and edit several thousand construction photos very quickly relying on chapter 13 from this book.
I have found the SAMS Teach Yourself series very useful in spite of their beginner level content. This book is part of a newer series from SAMS (blue spines with glossy photos of the galaxy) that are intended as in-depth resources for professionals. So far the six that I have in my library rank with the very best professional series from Apress and seem a bit beyond the always timely and usually useful WROX books.
