Developing ASP Components
The popularity of Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) technology is growing rapidly. Part of the reason is ASP's flexibility: the output of ASP scripts is most commonly HTML, which is included in the text stream returned to the client, making it a convenient way of creating browser-independent web content. But an additional reason--and one that will become more and more important over time, as webapplications replace web pages--is its extensibility. And the most effective way to extend ASP is to develop custom ASP components.
However, the techniques for developing custom ASP components, along with the snags and pitfalls of developing custom components, are not well documented. In addition, to successfully develop ASP components one must be a jack-of-all-trades: programming requires some knowledge of COM, of threading models, and of the ASP object model, as well as a mastery of one or more language tools and development environments.
That's where Developing ASP Components comes in. The first section of the book explores the topics all developers need to know to develop components for ASP effectively:
Because more and more developers find themselves using more than a single language tool, the remaining three sections of the book each focus on ASP component development using any of the three major development tools: Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft Visual C++ and the ActiveX Template Library (ATL), and Microsoft J++. Each section carefully focuses on the issues that concern the ASP component developer who is using that particular development environment. These include:
This thorough coverage of the background information needed for developing ASP components, as well as its focus on the component development in each of three major development environments, makes Developing ASP Components the definitive resource for the ASP application and component developer.
