Press Release: May 10, 1999
Developing ASP Components Increasingly ImportantSEBASTOPOL, CA--ASP (Active Server Pages) is becoming increasingly important as a tool to create browser-independent Web content. It's also being used for an additional reason-- and one that will become more and more important over time, as Web applications replace Web pages-its extensibility. And the most effective way to extend ASP is to develop custom ASP components.
Developing add-on controls and components is emerging as a multibillion dollar industry that is increasingly attracting the attention of developers. Powers' new book provides developers with information and real-world examples they need to create custom ASP components using any of the three major development tools: Visual Basic, Visual C++, and J++. "I think we are going to see a lot more integration of web server applications with other non-web based applications," says Powers. "For instance, we might have C++ ASP components accessing a CORBA server, with transactions managed by MTS. I think ASP is one of the best Web server development techniques-ever."
