Welcome to
Beginning ASP.NET 1.1 E-Commerce!


Dear Reader,

Welcome to the 2nd edition of Beginning ASP.NET E-Commerce! We really hope you'll enjoy reading this book, and that it will effectively help you build your own websites with ASP.NET, VB.NET and SQL Server!

This archive contains three folders:

ImageFolders: contains the Images and ProductImages folders which you'll need for testing the sample website we create in this book.

Code: contains the ASP.NET projects for JokePoint, for every chapter of the book. In order to run the code provided, you will need IIS, which is not installed by default on your Windows set-up. Issues relating to IIS are discussed in Appendix A, but as far as this code goes, all that is necessary to run it is to create a virtual directory corresponding to the absolute path in the code, as explained in Chapter 02.

Database: contains the database creation scripts for the tables, stored procedures, and functions.

If you have any questions or suggestions about the book, don't hesitate to contact Cristian through his personal website at http://www.CristianDarie.ro. We love hearing from you! Also, please don't hesitate to post an Amazon review if you happen to like the book, or have any suggestions that might help other potential readers decide if the book would be useful for them.

Thank you!

Cristian Darie and Karli Watson.
