XML and ASP.NET
New Riders, April, 2002.
Trade Paperback, 822 pages.
This book helps ASP developers learn how to use XML and ASP in Microsoft .NET web applications. Some of the .NET technologies covered include Xpath, XSLT, XML Schemas and the Microsoft XML Parsers. Other concepts covered in the text include using XML with ADO.NET, the .NET Framework classes, whitespace handling in XML, validating XML documents, using Visual Studio .NET, XML serialization, creating XML Web Services, SQL Server 2000 and WAP and WML programming. The appendixes in the book provide handy reference sections on ASP.NET objects, MSXML and XSLT.
Users that prefer to learn by studying the code will be pleased, because the book includes a great deal of sample code. Unfortunately, there is not a CD-ROM included with the book so readers will need to copy code from the book. Some prior experience with XML and ASP is recommended before reading XML and ASP.NET. Programmers already using XML and ASP will get the most benefit from this book as they learn how to transfer their knowledge to .NET applications.
XML and ASP.NET is available for purchase on Amazon.com
