In this Wrox Blox, you'll see the code and layers used to add an ASP.NET blog to your site. After working through the blog design and installation, you'll also get a chance to modify the blog application further using a three-layer n-tier design. The three layers are the presentation layer, business layer, and data access layer. A blog is a great addition to any ASP.NET content site. Thanks to ASP.NET 2.0, it’s easy to make the data access layer work with either Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft Access as your database. You’ll also see how to make use of the factories pattern in .NET 2.0 and ADO.NET 2.0, which gives you the power to have a class that creates instances of other classes.

In addition, the blog will incorporate the FCKeditor as the tool for bloggers to enter the post content into their blogs. The modifications to the base blog discuss different page views and adding user comments.

 This Wrox Blox is a modified chapter from the Wrox book ASP.NET 2.0 Instant Results.
