A condensed introduction to the Microsoft .NET Framework, this book aims to help
programmers make the transition from traditional Windows programming into the world of
.NET programming. The Microsoft .NET Framework includes the Common Language
Runtime (CLR) and a set of base classes that radically simplify the development of
large-scale applications and services. This book examines the CLR in detail, so that you can
put its new features to good use. The book also illustrates how language integration really
works and guides you through component and enterprise development using the .
The purpose of this book is to provide experienced software developers with the means to quickly
become productive in Microsoft's Visual Basic .NET development environment. The only
assumption I make about you as a programmer is that you're comfortable with the concepts and
processes of software development. This book will not teach you how to program. However, if
you're currently a working Visual Basic, C++, or Java developer, this book will help you transfer
your existing skills to this new environment....

When Microsoft created .NET, it wasn’t just dreaming about the future—it was also worrying
about the headaches and limitations of the current generation of web development technologies.
Before you get started with ASP.NET 2.0, it helps to take a step back and consider these problems.
You’ll then understand the solution that .NET offers.
In this chapter you’ll consider the history of web development leading up to ASP.NET, take a
whirlwind tour of the most significant features of .NET, and preview the core changes in ASP.NET 2.0.
If you’re new to ASP.
Trước hết, họ tên của ASP.NET là Active Server Pages .NET (.NET ở đây là .NET framework). Nói đơn giản, ngắn và gọn thì
ASP.NET là một công nghệ có tính cách mạng dùng để phát triển các ứng dụng về mạng hiện nay cũng như trong tương lai
(ASP.NET is a revolutionary technology for developing web applications).
Since 1996, ASP programmers have faced one upgrade after another, often with no
extremely visible advantages until version 3.x—it’s been quite a wild ride. Now we
have the first significant improvement in ASP programming within our grasp—
ASP.NET.Our reliance on a watered-down version of Visual Basic has been alleviated
now that ASP.NET pages may be programmed in both Microsoft’s new and
more powerful version of Visual Basic or the latest version of C++: C#, which is
more Web friendly.ASP.NET allows programmers and developers to work with both
ASP (Active Server Pages) is a web development technology that's leapt through several
stages of evolution. It was first introduced as an easy way to add dynamic content to ordinary
web pages. Since then, it’s grown into something much more ambitious: a platformfor
creating advanced web applications, including e-commerce shops, data-driven portal sites,
and just about anything else you can find on the Internet.
ASP.NET 2.0 is the latest version of ASP, and it represents the most dramatic change yet.
The Microsoft .NET Framework introduces many new concepts, technologies, and terms. My goal in
this chapter is to give you an overview of how the .NET Framework is architected, introduce you to
some of the new technologies the framework includes, and define many of the terms you’ll be
seeing when you start using it. I’ll also take you through the process of building your source code
into an application or a set of redistributable components (types) and then explain how these
ASP.NET Step By Step is designed to provide a comprehensive introduction and
overview of developing Web applications with ASP.NET. The goal of this book is to help
you become competent at the basic skills necessary for creating and using ASP.NET
applications. To help you get there as quickly and easily as possible, this book has been
divided into six parts, each composed of one or more chapters related to a specific topic.
Over the course of these parts and chapters, you’ll learn about the new .NET
development platform and the part ASP.NET plays in it.
Microsoft Visual Basic developers have long clamored for complete objectoriented language support. Microsoft Visual Basic .NET supports all the features of an objectoriented language. In addition, the entire Microsoft .NET Framework, which includes the development support for Microsoft Windows applications, Web applications, Web services, graphics, and data access, is designed according to object-oriented principles.
Developers who have a firm grasp of object-oriented principles will be the strongest .NET
With the release of the .NET Framework, Microsoft is taking the most significant risk
in its history. Microsoft has spent billions of dollars, representing over 80 percent
its R&D budget, on designing and constructing this fundamental shift in its development
tools in order to build a framework for the future of application development. Microsoft
has effectively realized its vision of Windows in every PC and a PC on every desktop.

This training kit is designed for developers who plan to take the Microsoft Certified IT
Professional (MCITP) Exam 70-502, as well as for developers who need to know how
to develop Microsoft Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)–based applications
using Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. We assume that before using this training kit,
you already have a working knowledge of Windows, Microsoft Visual Basic or C# (or
both), and Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML).
ASP.NET makes application development much easier than it was with classic ASP, and hence it has dramatically improved developers' productivity. ASP.NET enables you to provide richer functionality to your Web applications by writing the least amount of code. The best part is that ASP.NET enables you to select any of the available .NET
programming languages. So, unlike classic ASP, in which you had to depend on interpreted VBScript and JScript languages, ASP.NET provides a wide choice of programming languages....
In the spring of 2006, I had the privilege of taking a very early look at what would eventually
become ASP.NET MVC. Scott Guthrie of Microsoft arranged a personal demo just for me backstage at the DevConnections conference in balmy Nice, France. At the time, I had just started playing with ASP.NET Web Forms and the Model-View-Presenter (MVP) pattern.
to see the usual great set of designers to automatically define models, controllers,
and views. Instead, I was surprised to see a brand-new application model being
worked out on top of the same ASP.NET runtime.
Welcome to the XML.NET Developer’s Guide! We have taken great care to create a
quality reference book for XML programmers who want to enhance their coding
skills to include applications for the .NET platform.This book assumes that you do
have previous exposure to XML and are familiar with VB.NET, C#, and ASP.NET.
In other words, this book is not for a novice or beginner.
Since its inception in February of 1998, XML has been moving forward through
the continued efforts of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
