The deep integration of IIS7 and ASP.NET provides both IIS7 administrators and ASP.NET developers with new and exciting programming tools, techniques, and approaches that were not possible with earlier versions of IIS. With this book, Dr. Shahram Khosravi presents you with the only resource to focus exclusively on the key features of this exciting integration.
You'll get in-depth coverage of all the major systems that make up the IIS7 and ASP.NET integrated infrastructure, detailed explanations on how they work, guidance on how to use them in your own applications, and techniques for extending them to meet your application requirements.
Packed with detailed code walkthroughs and in-depth analyses of numerous real-world examples - all written and tested with Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, ASP.NET 2.0, and ASP.NET 3.5 (Visual Studio 2008), this book helps you gain the skills, knowledge, and experience you need to use and to extend the major systems that make up the IIS7 and ASP.NET integrated infrastructure.
