O'Reilly Updates Active Server Pages in a Nutshell

Sebastopol, CA--O'Reilly's just-released second edition of the popular ASP in a Nutshell offers the high-quality documentation that developers need to create effective Active Server Page (ASP) applications. ASP's language independence and simplicity of use have made it one of the leading technologies for developing web applications. Updated to thoroughly cover the latest version, ASP 3.0 as included with Windows 2000, ASP in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition focuses on how features are used in a real application and highlights little-known or undocumented aspects.

O'Reilly & Associates' renowned In a Nutshell series is the perfect format for ASP developers who want in-depth, no-fluff information in a concise and easy-to-use desktop reference. ASP in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition begins with overviews of ASP and Microsoft's Internet Information Server 5.0, followed by a complete Object Reference. Each object listing includes descriptions, properties, collections, methods, events, accessory files/required DLLs, and troubleshooting-including real-world uses, tips and tricks, and author experiences. Also included is a Component Reference, covering ActiveX Data Objects, the Ad Rotator, the Browser capabilities component, the File System Object, and many more.

ASP in a Nutshell, 2nd Editionenables even experienced web developers to create more powerful and elegant ASP applications.

What some critics said about the previous edition:

"A good reference guide that will help both neophyte and more experienced ASP web developers... packed with solid information that will undoubtedly find a premium spot on the bookshelves of experienced ASP programmers."
-Keith Schengili-Roberts, Computer Paper, Jan 2000

"An in-depth resource that provides web developers with all the essential information for creating effective Active Server Pages (ASP) applications and shows experienced developers how to take their ASP applications to greater heights."
-Forecast, June 1999

"Continuing the enormous success of the O'Reilly 'In a Nutshell' series of reference works, ASP in a Nutshell rolls up its sleeves and delves deep into the inner workings of this handy technology. Not intended as a catch-all guide, the book is nonetheless an invaluable work, taking time to spell out in succinct terms the various commands together with their associated switches and parameters. This is a must have for anyone who's serious about getting the most from ASP and NT servers."
