Editorial Reviews

From Book News, Inc.
Directed toward experienced developers and project managers, this useful volume provides a resource for figuring out the bugs in your code. Readers should be familiar with developing ASP.NET web applications; all code examples are given in both Visual Basic.NET and C#. Among the skills taught here are the debugging tools available in ASP.NET, how to write code less susceptible to bugs, methods to remove bugs from large web applications, issues found in migrating traditional ASP web applications to ASP.NET, and locating bugs associated with specific parts of ASP.NET, including user controls, caching, ADO.NET, and web services.Copyright © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Book Description
Debugging ASP.NET focuses on the various tools, techniques, and best practices associated with debugging ASP.NET web applications under Microsoft's new .NET platform. Brief descriptions of the problems with debugging previous versions of ASP are covered, as well as how the new features of ASP.NET can be exploited to their fullest to find and eliminate bugs quickly and easily. The book introduces changes to the code structure paradigm as implemented in the .NET platform, and how to structure ASP.NET code in this new paradigm to enable faster web application debugging.

1 out of 5 stars Do not buy this book, January 17, 2003

Reviewer:   A reader (Boston, MA USA)
This book has a great name but the book does not contain any substantial information related to debugging. Most of the information in the book are not for serious programmers.
My strong suggestion is do not buy this book for ASP.NET debugging or for ASP.NET as some of the reviewers have mentioned.

1 out of 5 stars Please do not waste time reading this book., January 10, 2003

Reviewer:   A reader (Boston, MA USA)
Title of the book is great and that's what I expected in the book. Unfortunately the book is below standards and if you are serious ASP.NET programmer this book is not for you. I have done extensive ASP and ASP.NET programming and so I am aware of most of the problems that occur nearly everyday when developing large enterprise level applications and I tried to finding these issues and best ways to detect them in this book , sadly it has no mention of the problems nor best suggestion for debugging ASP.NET. Additionally in order to make it a book they have topics highly irrelevant to the actual title which should have been the first chapters of some beginner books

5 out of 5 stars Overall good book, April 29, 2002

Reviewer:   A reader (Phoenix, AZ USA)
There are good chapter about Tracing, code structures, and debugging, and lot more. A must have for .Net Web developers. Code examples are in both VB and C#. I wish Author have included more code for COM based debugging.

4 out of 5 stars Decent focused book, January 31, 2002

Reviewer:   [email protected] (Nashville, TN USA) - See all my reviews
To a certain extent, I find this title a bit of a misnomer, as this particular tome contains more than simply debugging. It is well structured to relate these additional topics to debugging, but it is a pleasure to go through a book that both covers its subject and many of the peripheral issues that can help you debug, as well.

While this book is not heavy on OO, which would make a nice additional topic, debugging OO or procedural is largely the same.

There is a good mixture of both C# and VB.NET code, which I applaud. It is important to know that debugging is the same, regardless of language.

I do have a slight beef with the amount of code that resides in the ASPX file. This comes from my belief that the separation of code and UI, via a CodeBehind file, is an important part of .NET. You may disagree with this assessment.

There are some good examples of using tracing in your applications. Tracing is a great tool to find where you are having problems. There is also a nice section on logging your application exceptions.

The material on caching, although not completely related to debugging, is a nice addition.

The book, overall, is aimed for more advanced readers. I think a beginner might be able to tackle some of the material, and probably should, but understand that you might get a bit lost if this is your first ASP.NET book.
