There's a lot of new ground to cover in ASP.NET 2.0, from master pages and Web parts to new data access models. Murach's ASP.NET 2.0 Web Programming with C# 2005 addresses these new features as well as the basics of working with ASP.NET. It caters to a range of developers, from beginners to those with ASP or JSP experience to those familiar with ASP.NET 1.x.
The book begins with the basics of building an ASP.NET app within Visual Studio 2005. Chapter 4, How to test and debug an ASP.NET application, outlines the sometimes painstaking -- yet crucial -- steps of testing and debugging. First, there's code testing, which can be done with the new Development Server or through IIS. Then, there's browser testing, which can be done inside or outside Visual Studio. Finally, there's debugging, which occurs in VS 2005's integrated debugger.
