Course details
Course OutlineModule 1: Unit 1: Building Dynamic Web Applications
This unit introduces many different aspects of dynamic Web applications. It includes discussions on creating and configuring controls at run time. It then explains how to build dynamic globalization features into a Web application to ensure that it is localizable, including using localized resources and applying different master page layouts in response to culture and language settings. It concludes with explanations about how to enable dynamic configuration for site administrators.
  • Dynamic Control Creation
  • Localization and Globalization
  • Dynamic Master Pages
  • Dynamic Web Configuration
Lab : Building Dynamic Web Applications
After completing this unit, students will be able to:
  • Explain dynamic control creation in ASP.NET 2.0.
  • Add and configure controls dynamically.
  • Explain how to incorporate globalization and localization features into Web applications.
  • Add localization features to a Web application.
  • Describe when and how to implement dynamic master pages.
  • Apply master pages dynamically.
  • Describe dynamic Web configuration scenarios.
  • Dynamically configure Web applications.
Module 2: Unit 2: Creating Controls for Web Applications
This unit explains how developers create different types of controls for different scenarios. The different types of controls include user controls, custom Web server controls, composite Web server controls, and templated controls.
  • User Controls
  • Custom Web Server Controls
  • Composite Web Server Controls
  • Templated Controls
Lab : Creating Controls for Web Applications
After completing this unit, students will be able to:
  • Describe user controls and the underlying enabling technologies.
  • Create user controls.
  • Describe custom Web server controls and the underlying enabling technologies.
  • Create Web server controls.
  • Describe composite controls and how composite controls are created.
  • Create composite Web server controls.
  • Describe templated controls and the interfaces that enable their implementation.
  • Create templated controls.
Module 3: Unit 3: Optimizing Web Application Performance
This unit introduces topics that will help you improve the performance of Web applications. It describes how the Page Scripting Object Model can help reduce the number of round trips for communication between the server and the browser, and then explains how tracing and instrumentation can be used to monitor and, therefore, improve the performance of a Web application. The unit discusses how caching and asynchronous processing can help increase Web application performance; it then highlights some considerations that developers must address if the Web application is to be deployed in a Web farm environment.
  • The Page Scripting Object Model
  • Tracing and Instrumentation in Web Applications
  • ASP.NET 2.0 Caching Techniques
  • Asynchronous Processing in Web Applications
  • Web Farm Development Considerations
Lab : Optimizing Web Application Performance
After completing this unit, students will be able to:
  • Describe the Page Scripting Object Model.
  • Access Page Scripting Object Model functionality.
  • Explain how to use tracing and instrumentation to monitor and improve the performance of a Web application.
  • Implement tracing and instrumentation in Web applications.
  • Describe ASP.NET 2.0 caching techniques.
  • Implement ASP.NET 2.0 caching techniques.
  • Explain how asynchronous processing can lead to improved performance for Web applications.
  • Implement asynchronous processing in Web applications.
  • Describe strategies for dealing with session state management issues when deploying Web applications in a Web farm environment.
  • Develop Web applications for Web farm environments.
Module 4: Unit 4: Implementing Personalization and Themes in Web Applications
This unit introduces building customizable functionality into a Web application by adding personalization support. It discusses using the personalization features of ASP.NET 2.0 to provide this functionality. In addition, it discusses applying themes to Web applications and allowing users to choose color schemes to personalize their experience in using the Web application. It concludes by explaining how to include features that enable users to personalize themes.
  • ASP.NET 2.0 Personalization Features
  • Theme Support in ASP.NET 2.0
Lab : Implementing Personalization and Themes in Web Applications
After completing this unit, students will be able to:
  • Describe the personalization features provided by ASP.NET 2.0.
  • Describe ASP.NET 2.0 theme support.
  • Configure personalization for a Web application.
  • Implement personalization features.
  • Add themes to a Web application.
  • Implement customizable themes.
Module 5: Building Web Part Pages and Web Parts
This unit introduces the concept of a Web part, and describes how it is used in portal pages and other scenarios. It introduces the concept of a Web part page, and discusses how a Web part page contains some Web parts that provide the user interface, along with other controls that manage the Web part infrastructure. Additionally, it introduces the advanced features of connected Web parts and discusses scenarios where they are typically used.
  • What Is a Web Part?
  • What Is a Web Part Page?
  • Connected Web Parts
Lab : Building Web Part Pages and Web Parts
After completing this unit, students will be able to:
  • Describe what a Web Part is and the purpose of Web Parts.
  • Describe the components of a Web Part page and identify scenarios when Web Part pages are useful features of Web applications.
  • Describe the more advanced features of Web Parts, including connections between Web Parts.
  • Create Web Part pages.
  • Create Web Parts.
  • Create connected Web Parts.
