Product description

Amazon Review

Lots of people who set out to deploy Microsoft Site Server aren't really big on network and Web site administration. Rather, they just want to get a good-looking, reliable site up and running as quickly as possible. Beginning Site Server 3.0 is the perfect companion for such Web entrepreneurs. It's easy to follow but hardly dumbed down. The authors (consultants and programmers of various stripes) know that the purpose of Internet commerce is to please customers and make money, not fool with technology for its own sake.

A large part of this book takes the form of storyboard-style procedures, in which the authors explain (with many screen shots) the steps to follow in order to install Site Server and use its (rather powerful) site-construction wizards to build a business-to-consumer Web store. It's an effective presentation strategy, leaving little to the imagination during the critical set-up stages. The authors then make up for the limited flexibility of the storyboard approach by presenting detail-rich chapters on the databases that back up Site Server, as well as Pipelines, search facilities and various extensions. The programming information here is good but you'll probably want to supplement this book with one dedicated to Active Server Pages (ASP) if you have lots of custom work in mind. --David Wall,

Topics covered: Site Server Commerce Edition 3.0, including its installation, relationship to Microsoft SQL Server 6.5 and 7.0 and design principles. Detailed coverage goes to the Commerce Site Foundation Wizard and Commerce Site Builder Wizard, the database infrastructure of Site Server sites, Pipelines, content searches and membership databases. On the programming site, there's interesting information on calling ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) from Active Server Pages (ASP).


It's not hard to see that in today's world, increased Internet access, user confidence, better payment systems, and rapidly improving web security are fueling the massive growth in what has become known as e-commerce. There are increasing opportunities in this fast changing world, and most businesses know that they need to get onto the Internet to stay in the game. Setting up an e-commerce site can be a daunting prospect, but there is help at hand - this book will show you the way. Site Server 3.0 from Microsoft can be viewed as an architectural platform for your Internet, intranet, extranet and e-commerce sites. But Site Server Version 3.0 can also be viewed as a set of applications, a suite of tools, utilities and services, that provide you with everything you need for content management, knowledge management, access control, web site traffic analysis and more. In addition, Site Server 3.0 Commerce Edition enables you to build a transactional e-commerce web site, and provides you with all the tools you need for managing it. Microsoft Site Server 3.0 is a large product, but in this book, we're going to show you how to tame it, and how to unleash the power of Site Server Version 3.
