ASP (Active Server Pages, now known as ASP.NET) is a server-side include technology from Microsoft that allows programmers to create dynamic and adaptive websites. ASP.NET can be used to create anything from small, personal websites through to large, enterprise-class web applications.



Active Server Page (ASP) Tutorial

Introduced in 1996, Active Server Pages (ASP) are just like normal x/html pages except they are processed on the server before being sent to the client's machine. ASP itself is not a programming language, but a platform on which any scripting language that your web-server understands can run. The most popular languages used with ASP are VBScript (a subset of Visual Basic), JScript (Microsoft's version of JavaScript) and Perl Script. This tutorial only covers VBScript.

Applying XSLT to XML Using ASP.NET

This article explains the basics of XSL to transform XML documents using simple examples. We will gradually focus on using ASP.NET to implement XSLT for any XML document and even to database queries. It introduces different ways of implementing XSL from browser's perspective and server's perspective. We will also discuss some tips to generate automated XML from database queries and then transform them to HTML using XSL transformations.

ASP Tutorial

Unlike JavaScript the use of ASP doesn't depend on someone's browser supporting it) is very difficult to learn, and this has come from the early languages like Perl, which are difficult to write and even more difficult to debug. Over the past few years two new languages have emerged, PHP and ASP. These are easy enough for even the novice webmaser to learn.

Creating a Web Service with Web Matrix

The Web Matrix project appears to have served as a test bed in the development of ASP.NET. This freebie attracted a lot of attention since it did not require an installation of IIS. It had its own http server whenever needed. Of course, one could use it also in the presence of an installed IIS. This tutorial is about creating a web service on Web Matrix and testing the service on the built in mini web server, as well as testing a second example on the IIS 5.1 on the local machine.

Dealing with Images in Content Management Systems, Part 1

Most web-based content management systems offer a variety of tools to help contributors enter text. When it comes to graphics, content contributors are usually expected to provide web-ready images to the system. This means that either editorial users needs to know about image optimisation and web image formats, or additional staff are required to make web-ready images out of raw materials. This article demonstrates a technical solution to this problem.

ENTER and Event-Driven Programming

The event driven programming model in ASP.NET made possible by HTML and WEB controls 'runat server' is a great idea but not without problems. It is a usability disaster that the use of ENTER in forms no longer works as expected.

A New Approach to Designing Web Applications

What we need is a new way to build our applications. Instead of scattering the manual work and items requiring decision making across the development process, we need to do the 'thinky' things first then automate the rest. Why don't we just stop doing things the hard way?

Page Inheritance In ASP.NET

Use object inheritance with System.Web.UI.Page to apply a common paradigm for user authentication, and extending the base web form feature set in your web application. Apply common security, specify per-page user access levels, and enforce common functionality, with only one line of code per page.

Practical .NET Unit Testing   (PDF)

When the concept of unit testing is presented to a manager or a client managing a project, their reaction is often formed from a naïve understanding of the process. They assume that it has about the same ROI as traditional system testing. Unit tests are absolutely critical to writing complex, reliable software. Try to avoid comparing unit tests with traditional software testing. They are NOT the same thing, and they have dramatically different purposes.
