Product Description

From the Back Cover

What you need to know

This book is for people who:

  • Have some experience of programming ASP.NET with Visual Basic® .NET
  • Are familiar with the operation of the .NET Framework
  • Want to learn how to use ASP.NET to make data–centric web applications

What you will learn from this book

For a web site to offer its users an experience that improves on that of newspapers or textbooks, it needs a way to change the information it contains dynamically and that means it needs access to a data source. Through the combination of ASP.NET and ADO.NET, Microsoft provides everything you need to access, read from, and write to a database so that your web users can view and manipulate that data from a web browser. In this book, we’ll show you how it’s done.

Packed with clear explanations and hands–on examples, Beginning ASP.NET Databases Using VB.NET contains everything you’ll need on your journey to becoming a confident, successful programmer of data–driven web sites. In particular, we’ll look at:

  • Connecting to common data sources, including SQL Server® and MS Access
  • Reading data with data reader and dataset objects
  • Creating and deleting records, and editing data
  • Displaying data with ASP.NET’s web server controls
  • Writing and using stored procedures from VB.NET code
  • Placing your data access code in reusable class libraries

The book closes with a real–world case study that consolidates the tutorials throughout the book into a practical result.

"This book is based on my experience teaching hundreds of developers over the last 12 years. In it, you’ll find everything you need to begin using databases from your ASP.NET applications."
John Kauffman

Format: Paperback
It is not until you read a book that is dedicated to using databases in ASP.NET that you realize just how much there is to learn. This is a very readable & well structured book with excellent 'Try It Out' examples that provide easy to follow step-by-step guides.
Obviously understanding data readers, datasets, command objects and web server controls is vital but there are some rare and extremely useful chapters: componentization - leveraging class libraries for data access, performance, and a chapter that discusses Data-Driven ASP.NET application in the Real World that raises some very interesting issues; for example security tips, raising your own database errors & organizing your code.
The authors not only provide information that you would expect but they offer every encouragement to raise the bar by discussing ways to do things even better; for example 'A Better Connection String', creating Data Access classes, and fine tuning dataset & datareaders.

I must say I used to be a fan of Wrox publications,but This particular book is full of errors. As I worked through the book, I noticed that in some cases, The name of the object passed into parameters is wrong which made me read chapter 9, 3 times befor I could figure out what went wrong. This is not fair to beginners as you shouldnt be guessing what goes where when the book is meant to ease you into developing .net
I wouldnt say no to a refund as I have had to buy another ASP .NET book.
