Microsoft .NET includes a set of new technologies in building Web applications for the Internet and is a good match for the emerging paradigm of Web Based services as opposed to proprietary applications. Learning these new technologies is critical for programmers who want to function effectively in the new Paradigm of Web based services. This is a practical guide to the fundamentals of the new Web technologies for the .NET platform. The case study shows the .NET Web and XML technologies create a new model of business.The Prentice Hall/the Oberg's .NET series is a unique series of introductory and intermediate books on Microsoft's new important .NET technology. These books are based on proven development experience. The authors are expert practitioners, teachers and writers who combine subject matter expertise with years of experience in complex programming technologies such as C++, MFC, OLE, and COM/COM+. These books teach in a systematic, step-by-step manner and are not merely summaries of the documentation. All the books come with a rich set of programming examples. The ACME Travel Agency is used across the Oberg's .NET series as a unifying theme example. Different books in the series will elaborate on different parts of this case study or provide implementations in different languages. These books have been conceived as an integrated whole and not as independent efforts by a diverse group of authors. The initial set of books consists of three introductory books on .NET languages and four intermediate books on the .NET Framework. Each book is targeted at a specific part of the important .NET technology. Bob Oberg is the series editor for this .NET series.Reviews the basics ofcurrent Web technologies and the key languages of .NETShows the migration path from current technologies to ASP.NET, ADO.NET and VB.NET.Introduces .NET architectureCovers all of .NET Web building through the range of subject matter included such as the .NET framework, the Common Language Runtime, XML, ASP.NET, ADO.NET and VB.NET, Web Service, XML, SOAP and UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and Integration)Includes a case study that runs throughout the Oberg's .NET series
