This manuscript is an abridged version of a chapter from the Wrox Press book
Beginning Components for ASP.
This book will teach you how to create components for use with Active Server Pages. Components allow us to do things that aren't possible with script, and they bring other benefits to our code too - things like code reuse, easier maintenance, and safer, simpler distribution. Components allow us to build stronger, more robust web applications - with better design, performance, scalability, and so on. With at least one new component in every chapter, and with case studies in Visual Basic and C++, you will learn by example how to create your own components.
In this chapter, we're going to convince you that you already know quite a bit about programming with components; we'll look at some typical scenarios in which components are used; and we'll begin to investigate the impact that component programming has on application design. By the end of the chapter, you should understand that componentization isn't just about code reuse—it implies a new way of creating applications, opening the door to techniques and technologies that aren't available in'traditional' programming.
