This book is divided into the following parts :
Part I: What Is .NET?
This section will provide a brief overview of the .NET Framework and ADO.NET. Although it will go into some detail, this section is intended only to provide an overview of the technology.
Part II: Reading and Displaying Data
In this section, you'll begin working with ASP.NET and ADO.NET. You'll learn about the DataGrid server control first, and then you'll apply what you've learned to the DataList and Repeater server controls. As the title implies, this section is all about retrieving data from a data source and displaying it for a user . This includes using the new ADO.NET objects, reviewing SQL syntax, and building functional and attractive data display pages.
Part III: Updating and Inputting Data
In Part III, you'll build on your knowledge of ADO.NET by inserting new data and updating existing data in your data store. You'll learn about validation controls, editing functionality, and additional ADO.NET objects for inputting and updating data.
Part IV: Advanced Data Concepts
In Part IV, you'll learn about a handful of additional ASP.NET and data access functions, such as Web services, XML, and SOAP, as well as how to work with Binary Large Objects (BLOBs). You'll learn how to enable various types of authentication in your Web applications, and how to use data caching to improve the performance of your Web site by reducing the traffic to your data store.
Appendix A is a table of ASP.NET intrinsic server controls and their properties and methods .
Appendix B is an ADO.NET reference that includes the charts and diagrams found throughout this book.
Northwind Sample Application
On the companion Web site for this book (http://www.samspublishing.com), you'll find a sample application that demonstrates most of the technology covered in the book. For technical reasons, it's impossible for this sample application to cover everything in this book (such as Passport authentication, which requires a paid subscription). As with all the code samples in the book, the sample application is given in both Visual Basic.NET and C#.
