Visual Studio 6.0

There you have it. You have just written an Internet client server system. And we learned about the PWS in the process. To accomplish this task, we discovered and wrote a few Active Server Pages. We wrote forms that took information from a web surfer, saw how to store and retrieve the data in a database using ADO, and how to display it to the user. We learned how to write cookies to the client browser so we can easily identify repeat visitors, and we covered posting data from one form to another. Finally, we built an in-process DLL file that managed all of the data access for us. Now if we need to tweak the DLL file, we can simply update it and recompile it – and not have to change any of the .asp files. Not too bad for a single chapter. We hope that this has whetted your appetite for using ASP with ADO.
