About this book

From seasoned developer Budi Kurniawan comes Internet Programming with Visual Basic, which teaches experienced Visual Basic programmers how to successfully combine two key Microsoft technologies used to drive the Web: Visual Basic and Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS). This book covers what you as a professional developer needs to know to use VB to write WebClasses that combine all the elements of a robust, scalable Internet application.

This book guides you through the process of building a browser-independent Internet application using VB. Along the way, Kurniawan provides real-world code examples and detailed explanations of exactly what is occurring at each step in the development process. He also offers thorough coverage of IIS objects and concepts used by both WebClasses and ASP applications. You'll learn how IIS applications compare with other technologies, such as ASP, and why IIS applications are much faster and more scalable.

The first part of the book begins by reviewing and comparing the performance of the major Microsoft Internet technologies, including IIS applications. Kurniawan introduces the concept of IIS applications, shows how they're built, and provides related coverage of WebClasses, WebItems, and virtual directories. He also explains the role of ASP objects in IIS, the concept of ODBC and how to set up a Data Source Name connection, and the bases of Microsoft's Universal Data Access and MDAC strategies. In the second part of the book, Kurniawan discusses database optimization techniques, client-side processing, and how to manage state using the URLData property, Session object, database, cookies, and hidden fields. Finally, he addresses the crucial issues of security and successful deployment.
