Product description

Amazon Review

ASP in a Nutshell gives Microsoft Active Server Pages' developers a quick reference guide for looking up object usage. This guide is geared towards working ASP programmers who need to get their answers quickly, without wading through long examples.

The book is organised in three parts: an introduction to ASP, a language reference, and appendices. This second edition has been updated for IIS 5.0 and ASP 3.0--the latest flavours of Microsoft's flagship Web server and scripting engines. The ASP introduction is very brief but adequately explains the basic concepts behind ASP and server-side scripting.

The heart of the title is the language reference that covers the intrinsic ASP objects plus ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) 2.6, Collaboration Data Objects, file access, and more. Each section is tagged with staggered page markers that usually make it unnecessary to resort to the book's index to find a topic.

While there are no full-blown code examples, the small code fragments that are included for most objects are valuable in illustrating usage. The information is accurate and to the point throughout, and that's exactly what busy programmers really need in a desktop reference. --Stephen W. Plain,

  • ASP overview
  • Application of ASP objects
  • ASPError
  • ObjectContext

"…the author clearly explains how ASP works and how server-side components can work with ASP code to further extend server-side functionality. Five stars. --
