I'm fairly new to ASP, and I found an O'Reilly book on ASP Components for cheap, hoping to learn how to do industrial strength ASP sites. My questions are: 1) Is that book okay? 2)Is COM the same as ASP Components?
You can read a sample chapter of that book at:<BR>http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/devaspcom2/chapter/ch10.html<BR><BR>I usually find it helps to read a sample chapter before buying the book to see if the writing style meshes with my taste. Also, another book whose sample chapter you may wish to take a look at is Wrox's Beginning ASP Components:<BR>http://www.asp101.com/articles/wrox/2882/contents.asp<BR><BR>FYI, there is a list of free, online sample chapters at:<BR>http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/chapters/<BR><BR>To answer your second question: COM components are the same thing as ASP components. In fact, there really are no such things as "ASP components." ASP can utilize COM components. I guess a COM component that is being used by an ASP page and was designed to be used by an ASP page could be termed an ASP component, but now I am just being pedantic. :-)<BR><BR>Happy Programming!
