Beginning ASP 3.0
Whether you're completely new to programming, or you have some experience with other languages and you’re looking to pick up ASP for the first time, Beginning ASP 3.0 will give you a good introduction to the essentials. With a friendly and supportive tone, the introductory chapters of the book walk you through the basics of the VBScript language, which is most often used to write ASP scripts. Unfortunately, while these were some of the most approachable chapters in the book, I found that, in places, they were also the weakest, technically speaking. Certain sections are unnecessarily confusing (notably the early section on variants, for which I had to seek a more cogent description in the online documentation); meanwhile, others contained some fairly basic inaccuracies (e.g. the list of arithmetic operators on p.140 incorrectly identifies the integer division operator (\) as an alternate form of the modulus operator (MOD)).
ASP 3.0 Programmer's Reference
have to admit that the unhelpful reference materials that made up the last quarter of Beginning ASP 3.0 left me with the distinct impression that the best place to go for a good ASP reference was the online documentation that accompanies ASP itself. Professional ASP 3.0 did little to change that opinion, as its reference section was all but nonexistent. As soon as I looked at WROX's ASP 3.0 Programmer's Reference, the reason for this apparent omission became clear.

Get an expert, developer-focused introduction to the next big innovation in ASP.NET Web programming. Programming authority Dino Esposito takes you inside the ASP.NET 2.0 technology, explaining how its updated, more powerful infrastructure allows you to create rich and dynamic Web applications quickly and with less code. Esposito examines how developer best practices with ASP.NET 1.x and classic ASP helped drive the architectural changes in ASP.NET 2.0, and he offers prerelease insights into its final architecture. With concise concept and feature explanations and more than 70 fully functional examples, this comprehensive introduction gives you everything you need to dig into ASP.NET 2.0 right now.
ASP.NET 2.0 Beta Preview
The Microsoft Book Club is proud to present ASP.NET 2.0 Beta Preview live with author Bill Evjen. This webcast event is comprised of an author interview followed by a presentation and question and answer session pertaining to the topics of the book.
ASP.NET 2.0 Beta Preview is timed to coincide with the first widespread beta release of Microsoft ASP.NET 'Whidbey', the new version of Microsoft's popular technology for creating dynamic Web sites. The book gets developers up to speed with the new features and capabilities that ASP.NET 2.0 provides. ASP.NET 2.0 Beta Preview focuses on both Microsoft Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# developers. Examples throughout the book are provided in both languages.

Instant ASP Scripts
Active Server Pages (ASP) technology represents, in most cases, the best server-side scripting choice for intranets, extranets, and public Web sites served by Windows NT and Internet Information Server (IIS). Instant ASP Scripts provides network administrators with a crash course in ASP work along with a considerable library of ready-to-use scripts.
An initial ASP tutorial explains the basics of the language, but the really interesting educational material accompanies the scripts in the library. With each program, the author comments on whatever interesting tricks he's used, excerpting the code as needed. The book touches on pretty much everything ASP can do (including its considerable power to interact with databases).
The library includes a script that runs a suggestion box, another that runs a vote counter, one that files requests for purchase orders, and a whole bunch of calculators. You'll also find scripts for rotating banner ads, a script that walks the surfer through a troubleshooting tree, and a script that tracks vacation time. Rather than pad his book with gee-whiz scripts having little practical value, Greg Buczek has built a collection of scripts that are useful just as they are and can be modified to fit other situations. (All the code appears on the companion CD-ROM.) --David Wall

Beginning Active Server Pages 3.0
Filling an important spot in the Wrox Programmer to Programmer series, Beginning Active Server Pages 3.0 is an introduction to the new version of ASP released for the Windows 2000 platform. This guide expects no previous ASP knowledge or even previous Web development experience.
A Preview of Active Server Pages+
Microsoft's Active Server Pages technology is still a relatively new way to create dynamic Web sites and Web-based distributed applications. However, during its short life span, it has evolved to become the foremost tool in the Windows-oriented Web programmer's toolbox. This is probably due to the ease with which complex pages and applications can be created, combined with the ability to use home-grown custom components, and existing Microsoft and 3rd party commercial components, through the Component Object Model (COM/COM+) architecture. Microsoft is currently working on the next generation of ASP, provisionally called ASP+. While it still supports existing ASP pages and applications, ASP+ is actually a complete rewrite of the existing versions. It changes the way that you need to think about ASP and your Web-based applications and Web sites. 'A Preview of ASP+' is the first book to outline the changes and the new ways that you can use ASP in your applications.
Web Programming with ASP and COM
Active Server Pages (ASP) and the Component Object Model (COM) are two exciting technologies that are quickly making the development of mission-critical Web applications easier than ever. ASP, with its simple scripting languages and well-designed Web object model, is easy to learn. COM is a bit more complex, but is the most widely used standard for distributed reusable software components. Together, ASP and COM provide programmers with the tools necessary to develop applications for e-commerce, messaging, and database front ends.
Web Programming with ASP and COM emphasizes the importance of both technologies in an easy-to-read tutorial format. This book covers the fundamental concepts of ASP and COM, and quickly gets the programmer up to speed building Web applications.
Designing Active Server Pages
Developers of Active Server Pages often reinvent the wheel. Their background in web design, with its separate HTML page for each viewable web page on a site, leads many ASP developers to create a distinct ASP page each time they think they need one. Often times, these pages are functionally similar. With intelligent planning, an ASP developer stands to save a great deal of time by creating reusable ASP pages. Designing Active Server Pages is tailor-made for these developers. There is currently a plethora of Active Server Pages books. However, the vast majority of these books are either technical references or how-to books for beginners. Designing Active Server Pages is written for the intermediate to advanced user. Furthermore, nearly every other book on ASP focuses on using VBScript, even though ASP supports an array of scripting languages, including JScript and PerlScript. Designing Active Server Pages shows how to start using these other languages. The latest version of the scripting engines (Version 5.1 for VBScript) adds new features not available before the 5.0 release. These features include class support for VBScript, and Regular Expression searching through the use of a COM object. Designing Active Server Pages explains why using classes in VBScript is beneficial, and demonstrates the power of regular expression searching. This book shows how to simplify the process by only requiring one ASP page to handle ALL of the Forms throughout a web site, thus reducing the amount of code one has to write. Topics include:
* Using various Microsoft and third-party components to enhance ASP pages
* Creating components using VB and/or VC++
* Sample code for performing routine ASP tasks
* Techniques to allow for reusable database scripts on the database system and on ASP pages
* How to obtain and register third-party components, thus saving massive amounts of time by reusing someone else's code
