Microsoft ASP.NET 4 Step by Step

Microsoft ASP.NET 4 Step by Step By George Shepherd
Publisher: Microsoft Press 2010 | 640 Pages | ISBN: 0735627010 | PDF | 10 MB

This book shows you how to write Web applications using Microsoft ASP.NET 4, the most current version of the Microsoft HTTP request processing framework. Web development has come a long way since the earliest sites began popping up on the Internet in the early 1990s. The world of Web development offers several choices of development tools. During the past few years, ASP.NET has evolved to become one of the most consistent, stable, and feature rich frameworks available for managing HTTP requests.

ASP.NET, together with Microsoft Visual Studio, includes a number of features to make your life as a Web developer easier. For example, Visual Studio offers several project templates that you can use to develop your site. Visual Studio also supports a number of development modes, including using Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) directly to test your site during development, using a built-in Web server, and developing your site over an FTP connection. With the debugger in Visual Studio, you can run the site and step through the critical areas of your code to find problems. With the Visual Studio Designer, you can develop effective user interfaces by dropping control elements onto a canvas to see how they appear visually. And when you are ready to deploy your application, Visual Studio makes it easy to create a deployment package. These are but a few of the features built into the ASP.NET framework when paired with Visual Studio.

The purpose of this book is to tell the story of ASP.NET development. Each section presents a specific ASP.NET feature in a digestible format with examples. The stepwise instructions yield immediate working results. Most of the main features of ASP.NET are illustrated here using succinct, easily duplicated examples. The examples are rich to illustrate features without being overbearing. In addition to showing off ASP.NET features by example, this book contains practical applications of each feature so that you can apply these techniques in the real world. After reading this book and applying the exercises you’ll have a great head start into building real Web sites that include such modern features as AJAX, WCF services, custom controls, and master pages.

This book is organized so that you can read each chapter independently for the most part. With the exception of Chapter 1, “Web Application Basics,” and the three chapters on server-side controls (Chapters 3 to 5), which make sense to tackle together, each chapter serves as a self-contained block of information about a particular ASP.NET feature. In addition, for the sake of completeness, Chapter 1 also includes information about how IIS and ASP.NET interact together.

Who This Book Is For
This book is targeted at several types of developers:

* Those starting out completely new to ASP.NET The text includes enough back story to explain the Web development saga even if you’ve developed only desktop applications.
* Those migrating from either ASP.NET 1.x, 2.0, 3.x, or even classic ASP The text explains how ASP.NET 4 is different from earlier versions of ASP.NET. It also includes references explaining differences between ASP.NET and classic ASP.
* Those who want to consume ASP.NET how-to knowledge in digestible pieces You don’t have to read the chapters in any particular order to find the book valuable. Each chapter stands more or less on its own (with the exception of the first chapter, which details the fundamentals of Web applications—you might want to read it first if you’ve never ventured beyond desktop application development). You might find it useful to study the chapters about server-side controls (Chapters 3 to 5) together, but it’s not completely necessary to do so.
