Dreamweaver MX 2004 is a great tool, and a great teacher. Its finely tuned support for ASP.NET makes it the fastest way to build serious data-driven web applications. And its transparent interface and the ultra-clean code it generates gives you ample opportunity to learn ASP.NET in its purest form.

For those who aren't yet adept with ASP.NET, Developing Killer Web Apps with Dreamweaver MX and C# gives you the help you need interpreting what you see as Dreamweaver does its thing. This book provides a succinct and incisive tutorial on the C# syntax and classes that Dreamweaver uses to generate code for dynamic web applications.

This is just the start, however. Once you've gotten your head around ASP.NET--or if it already is—you'll find this book to be a highly efficient guide to the business of saving time and solving difficult development problems with Dreamweaver as an integrated development environment. This includes help with some of Dreamweaver's most important, and yet most poorly documented, capabilities, such as working with stored procedures and generating web services. Here's more of what you'll find covered inside:

  • Building ASP.NET web controls
  • Writing ASP.NET scripts
  • Putting together web services using Dreamweaver
  • Using SQL inside Dreamweaver
  • Getting the most out of Dreamweaver's custom user control for .NET
  • Working with DataGrids and other databound controls
  • Validating pages

Detailed examples address the real runtime problems that can adversely affect your applications, showing you how to avoid them, fix the ones that slip through, and make coding tweaks that measurably boost performance.
