Professional ASP.NET 2.0 XML by Thiru Thangarathinam
This book will cover the intersection between two great technologies: ASP.NET and XML.
XML has been a hot topic for some time. The massive industry acceptance of this W3C Recommendation, which allows data communication and information storage in a platform independent manner, has been astounding. XML is seen and used everywhere—from the display of data on various browsers using the transformation language XSLT, to the transport of messages between Web services using SOAP.
.NET is Microsoft’s evolutionary and much vaunted new vision. It allows programming of applications in a language independent manner, the sharing of code between languages, self-describing classes, and self-documenting program code to name but a few of its capabilities. .NET, in particular ASP.NET, has been specifically designed with Web services and ease of development in mind. With the release of .NET 2.0 Framework, .NET includes significant enhancements to all areas of ASP.NET. For Web page development, new XML data controls like XmlDataSource, and TreeView make it possible to display and edit data on an ASP.NET Web page without writing code reducing the required amount of code by as much as 70% in some cases. ADO.NET 2.0 includes many new features that allow you to leverage the new XML features introduced with SQL Server 2005 (the next major release of SQL Server).
To achieve this exciting new Web programming environment, Microsoft has made extensive use of XML. In fact, no other technology is so tightly bound with ASP.NET as XML. It is used as the universal data format for everything from configuration files to metadata, Web Services communication, and object
serialization. All the XML capabilities in the System.Xml namespace were significantly enhanced for added performance and standards support. The new model for processing in-memory XML data, editable XPathNavigator, new XSLT processor, strong typed support for XmlReader, and XmlWriter classes, are some of the key XML related improvements. Connected to this is the new support for XML that ADO.NET 2.0 has. Because of the new ADO.NET 2.0 features, the programmer now has the ability to access and update data in both hierarchical XML and relational database form at the same time.
This book is aimed at intermediate or experienced programmers who have started on their journey toward ASP.NET development and who are already familiar with XML. While I do introduce the reader
to many new ASP.NET 2.0 concepts in Chapter 2, this book is not intended as a first port of call for the developer looking at ASP.NET, since there are already many books and articles covering this area.
Instead, I cut straight to the heart of using XML within ASP.NET Web applications. To get the most out
of the book, you will have some basic knowledge of C#. All the code examples will be explained in C#.
