The foundation for most Web services, XML can also be used with ASP.NET to display data from an infinite variety of sources in a Web site
After covering the basics, the book explores the many ways that XML documents can be created, transformed, and transmitted to other systems using ASP.NET 2.0
Two major case studies address issues such as reading and writing XML data, XML data validation, transforming XML Data with XSLT, SQL Server XML integration, XML support in ADO.NET, and XML Web Services
There are many different technologies available today for developing complex web sites and web applications,
and with so many to choose from, it’s great that there’s one technology in particular that stands
out from the crowd and is such a joy to use. ASP.NET 2.0 is a fantastic technology that enables you to
develop web sites and applications with very little hassle. Developing web applications was never this

it to host even the most complex applications available today....
Welcome to ASP.NET 2.0 Everyday Apps For Dummies, the book that
teaches ASP.NET 2.0 Web programming by example. In this book,
you’ll find eight complete ASP.NET applications. We’re not talking trivial
Hello-World-type applications here. Instead, they’re real-world applications
like shopping carts and discussion forums. You can use any of them as-is, or
modify them as you see fit. So you’ve got workable stuff already included.
(What a concept.)
Web Parts are reusable components that extract data from existing Microsoft or non-Microsoft applications for use in ASP.NET Web pages; they can also be used to build user controls
Presents developers with an understanding of how Web Parts work and how they can be developed
Examines how to secure and integrate Web Parts into other Windows systems (SQL Server, Office, ASP.NET, Content Manager)
TO BUILD EFFECTIVE AND ATTRACTIVE database-driven websites, you need two things: a solid and
fast framework to run your web pages on and a rich and extensive environment to create and program
these web pages. With ASP.NET 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012 you get both. Together they form
the platform to create dynamic and interactive websites.
ASP.NET 4.5 builds on top of its popular predecessors ASP.NET 2.0, 3.5, and 4.0. While maintaining
backward compatibility with sites built using these older versions, ASP.NET 4.
Web 2.0 Ajax portals are among the most successful web applications of the Web
2.0 generation. iGoogle and Pageflakes are the pioneers in this market and were

well as dashboards that deliver powerful content aggregation for enterprises. A Web
2.0 portal can be used as a content repository just like a SharePoint or DotNetNuke
site. Because they draw on Ajax to deliver rich, client-side interactivity, Web 2.
Custom controls and Web Parts can make you more productive by enabling you to create re-usable components
for your WebForms. You can package up a piece of your user interface and re-use it within your
Web site or across many Web sites. But that’s only one way that these controls make you more productive.
If you’ve ever had an ASP.NET control that you wished worked slightly differently, you can now
create the control that you want. When you build your own custom controls and Web Parts, you can
have the control do as much (or as little) as you want....
Yes, finally, Microsoft has figured it out. ASP.NET MVC 2.0 lets you test drive your code, control the output of your HTML, and leverage C# and .NET in an easy-to-use web framework. This book shows you all you need to know to get started developing web applications using test-driven development (TDD). You'll learn how to do everything from creating your first test, to building REST web services, to deploying your finished ASP.NET MVC applications.
When it comes to creating dynamic web sites, the open source PHP language is red-hot property: used on more than 20 million web sites today, PHP is now more popular than Microsoft’s ASP.NET technology. PHP is an ideal server-side scripting language that connects HTML-based web pages to a backend database for dynamic content. It allows you to create anything from a simple form-to-email script to a web forum application, a blogging platform, or a content management system.
