ASP.NET 2.0 is the new version of Microsoft's groundbreaking server-side scripting language. There is currently a huge demand to integrate dynamic content into Flash websites and applications and, as a solid competitor to technologies such as JSP, PHP, and ColdFusion, ASP.NET is one of the most popular choices to achieve this.
Used in conjunction with Flash, ASP.NET can process, store, and create new data, and work as a bridge between the Flash movie and external data sources, enabling web designers to build dynamic, interactive web applications, incorporating information from a host of databases.
Whether you're a Flash designer or an ASP.NET developer, this highly readable Foundation book will provide a a thorough grounding to integrating Flash , ActionScript 2.0, ASP.NET, and databases. Along the way you’ll study features such as email integration, saving visitor information, dynamic updating, and much more. Foundation ASP.NET 2.0 for Flash will take you through the essentials of ASP.NET/C#, setting up your development environment, sending data to and from Flash, database integration, and then on to advanced topics such as web services, Flash Remoting, XML data, and securing your applications.
