The all-new approach for experienced ASP.NET professionals! ASP.NET is Microsoft's technology for building dynamically generated web pages from database content. Originally introduced in 2002, ASP.NET has undergone many changes in multiple versions and iterations as developers have gained a decade of experience with this popular technology. With that decade of experience, this edition of the book presents a fresh, new overhauled approach. A new focus on how to build ASP.NET sites and applications relying on field-tested reliable methods Integration of "One ASP.NET" philosophy treating ASP.NET Web Forms and ASP.NET MVC as equal tools each with their proper time and place Coverage of hot new ASP.NET 4.5 additions such as the Web API, Websockets and HTML5 & CSS3 use in layout but only to the extent that the tools themselves are practical and useful for working ASP.NET developers Professional ASP.NET 4.5 in C# and VB is an essential tool for programmers who need to be productive and build reliably performing sites with the latest ASP.NET Framework and Visual Studio.
Experienced developers who are looking to create reliably secure sites with ASP.NET 2.0 will find that Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership, and Role Management covers a broad range of security features including developing in partial trust, forms authentication, and securing configuration. The book offers detailed information on every major area of ASP.NET security you’ll encounter when developing Web applications. You’ll see how ASP.NET 2.0 version contains many new built-in security functions compared to ASP.NET 1.x such as Membership and Role Manager, and you’ll learn how you can extend or modify various features. The book begins with two chapters that walk you through the processing ASP.NET 2.0 performs during a web request and the security processing for each request, followed by a detailed explanation of ASP.NET Trust Levels. With this understanding of security in place, you can then begin working through the following chapters on configuring system security, forms authentication, and integrating ASP.NET security with classic ASP including integrating Membership and Role Manager with classic ASP. The chapter on session state looks at the limitations of cookieless session identifiers, methods for heading off session denial of service attacks, and how session state is affected by trust level. After the chapter explaining the provider model architecture in ASP.NET 2.0 and how it is useful for writing custom security providers you go to the MembershipProvider class and configuring the two default providers in the Membership feature, SqlMembershipProvider and ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider. You'll see how to use RoleManager to make it easy to associate users with roles and perform checks declaratively and in code and wrap up working with three providers for RoleProvider – WindowsTokenRoleProvider, SqlRoleProvider, and AuthorizationStoreRoleProvider (to work with Authorization Manager or AzMan).

In this book, you’ll be introduced to the features and capabilities of ASP.NET 3.5, as well as the foundation that ASP.NET provides. Updated for the latest release of Visual Studio, this new edition adds five hundred pages of great new content compared to the original 2.0 version of the book. Including both printed and downloadable VB and C# code examples, this edition focuses even more on experienced programmers and advanced web development. New coverage includes new chapters on IIS 7 development, LINQ, ASP.NET, Silverlight, and many others.
This book begins with you working along as Scott Guthrie builds a complete ASP.NET MVC reference application. He begins NerdDinner by using the File->New Project menu command within Visual Studio to create a new ASP.NET MVC Application. You'll then incrementally add functionality and features. Along the way you’ll cover how to create a database, build a model layer with business rule validations, implement listing/details data browsing, provide CRUD (Create, Update, Delete) data form entry support, implement efficient data paging, reuse UI using master pages and partials, secure the application using authentication and authorization, use AJAX to deliver dynamic updates and interactive map support, and implement automated unit testing. From there, the bulk of the rest of the book begins with the basic concepts around the model view controller pattern, including the little history and the state of the MVC on the web today. We'll then go into the ways that MVC is different from ASP.NET Web Forms. We'll explore the structure of a standard MVC application and see what you get out of the box. Next we dig deep into routing and see the role URLs play in your application. We'll deep dive into controllers and views and see what role the Ajax plays in your applications. The last third of the book focuses entirely on advanced techniques and extending the framework. In some places, we assume that you're somewhat familiar with ASP.NET WebForms, at least peripherally. There are a lot of ASP.NET WebForms developers out there who are interested in ASP.NET MVC so there are a number of places in this book where we contrast the two technologies. Even if you're not already an ASP.NET developer, you might still find these sections interesting for context, as well as for your own edification as ASP.NET MVC may not be the web technology that you're looking for.

What is this book about? ASP.NET 1.0 is the final release of Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP). It is a powerful server-based technology designed to create dynamic, interactive, HTML pages for web sites and corporate intranets. ASP.NET is a core element of Microsoft's exciting .NET vision, building on the strengths of the .NET Framework to provide many new features not seen in previous versions of ASP. This book, entirely revised and updated for the final release, will provide you with a step-by-step introduction to ASP.NET using VB.NET, with plenty of worked examples to help you to gain a deep understanding of what ASP.NET is all about, and how you can harness it to build powerful web applications. What does this book cover? In this book, you will learn how to Create basic ASP.NET pages with VB .NET Understand the concepts of Object Oriented Programming Work with data and XML Debug and handling errors in your code Use ASP.NET Server Controls Create user controls and components Explore the world of Web services Optimize performance Secure your application Who is this book for? This book is aimed at relatively inexperienced web builders who are looking to enrich their sites with dynamically-generated content, and want to learn how to start building web applications using ASP.NET. Developers who have a little experience with previous versions of ASP (and are looking to move over to ASP.NET), may also find this book helpful in getting a simple grasp on what ASP.NET is, what it does, and how it can be used. Experience of basic HTML is required, but previous experience of ASP or VBScript is not essential. We'll be teaching the basics of VB .NET in this book, so prior experience of the language is not required.
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)
