The .Net Framework is a software framework that runs primarily on Microsoft Windows. It includes a large library and provides language interoperability (meaning that each language can use code written in other languages) across several programming languages. Programs written for the .Net Framework execute in a software environment known as the Common Language Runtime (CLR), an application virtual machine that provides important services such as security, memory management, and exception handling. The class library and the CLR together constitute the .Net Framework.
The .NET Framework’s Base Class Library provides user interface, data access, database connectivity, cryptography, web application development, numeric algorithms, and network communications. Programmers produce software by combining their own source code with the .NET Framework and other libraries. The .NET Framework is intended to be used by most new applications created for the Windows platform. Microsoft also produces a popular integrated development environment largely for .NET software called Visual Studio.
Students will learn the benefits of using ASP technology to create dynamic, data-driven Web sites. The course introduces the ASP Object Model, several built-in ASP Components, Scripting Objects, and the ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) Model.
Students will learn how to create dynamic,database-driven Websites. Hands-on tasks follow programming concepts, so that students can immediately implement what they learn. Students needing to transform their static HTML-only Web site into a dynamic, data-driven Web site that accesses databases, uses COM components, dynamically serves information from a variety of sources, and much more.
- Define what ASP is what platforms and applications support it, and the role of scripting languages, objects and components in ASP programming.
- Implement the use of Server-Side includes to improve web programming efficiency through modularization.
- Define the role of the ASP Response Object and use its Write, Redirect and Output control properties and methods.
- Define the role of the ASP Response Object and use its Form, Query String and Server Variables collections to obtain user-supplied information and environment details.
- Determine the value of cookies in maintaining user state and use the Cookie collections of the Request and Response objects.
- Define what ASP components are and the use of the Server Object Instantiate ASP components.
- Use the Ad Rotator, Browser Capabilities, and Content Linking components.
- Describe the difference between ASP applications and sessions and use the Global.asa file to launch application and session events.
- Describe what Scripting Objects are and use the Dictionary File System Object, and Text Stream Objects to further enable your ASP web sites.
- Describe the relationship between ASP and ADO and create a database connection from a web site.
- Use the Record set object to display database records, create on-the-fly combo boxes and option groups, and filter records based on user input.
- Add, update, and delete records in a database using both ADO and SQL query methods. Use stored procedures and parameter queries to improve database access on the web.
- Create a data browser that allows forward and backward record set browsing and a paged record set display system.
