Chapter 10. ASP.NET Applications

I l @ ve RuBoard

This chapter provides a general understanding of some of the main ASP.NET application configuration components you'll need to become familiar with as you develop and deploy your own applications. If you have developed any "Web applications" in Classic ASP, you probably felt like it was kind of an application, but it was really more like a bunch of Web pages simulating a real software application. ASP.NET is no longer a server-side scripting language, and your applications are not a bunch of dynamic Web pages. ASP.NET borrows from the success of ASP and will look familiar to ASP pros, but it is radically different.

In this chapter, you will

  • Review some HTTP basics to understand how your ASP.NET application manages a remote client's session.

  • Examine the key files and events in ASP.NET that help manage resources for client sessions.

  • Look at some of the critical settings and requirements you'll need to know to deploy an ASP.NET application; with or without VS.NET.

  • Code, configure, and compile an ASP.NET application that authenticates client access.

The source code for this chapter is a sample application that highlights this chapter's key concepts: Storing data at Application and Session object levels, Authentication with web.config, and setting cookies.

An ASP.NET application is composed of many different objects. Those objects might be Web pages, application services, security services, Web Services (detailed in Chapter 11, "ASP.NET and Web Services"), global application files, configuration files, resources such as DLLs and EXEs, and data stores like XML files. This chapter examines ASP's most critical application files, the scope of their control, the things they manage, what they look like, and how and when they are used.
