Microsoft .Net XML Web Services
|By Robert Taylor
This book will therefore serve as both an introductory title and an in-depth
reference that will grow with the reader as they begin to create their own Web
Services. They will come to understand what Web Services are, where they fit
into the 'big picture' and will have many coding examples to choose from within
the first five chapters. As they begin to 'get serious' about developing
enterprise level Web Services, they will be able to refer back to the detailed
information about the classes that implement Web Services and come to a deeper
understanding of what is happening behind the scenes.
Teach Yourself .Net In 21 Days.
|By Dan Fox
ADO.NET refers to a set of classes that ship with Visual Studio .NET that
allow developers to access data typically stored in relational databases. The
purpose of this book is to explain the important features of ADO.NET to

guidance and Best Practices for using ADO.NET in corporate applications.

Perl Developers Dictionary
|By Clinton Pierce
Perl Developer's Dictionary is a complete, well-organized
reference to the Perl language and environment, including core syntax as well as
Perl modules. Designed specifically for the experienced developer who needs a
reference readily available on his or her desk to refer to on a daily basis, the
book is extensively cross-referenced and indexed for optimal usability. In
addition to providing a complete syntax reference for all core Perl functions,
the book also provides quick access to language syntax, constructs, and other
language issues. Each major section of the book is prefaced with a short
introduction to provide background material on the subject at hand, and then is
followed by a series of 'dictionary' entries that cover exactly one topic,
carefully cross-referenced and indexed with the rest of the book.
Teach Yourself Perl In 21 Days
|By Laura Lemay and Richard Colburn
Sams Teach Yourself Perl in 21 Days covers the basics of Perl in
the first few chapters, and then moves on to practical issues of Perl and
in-depth discussions of more advanced topics. Later chapters also delve into
software engineering topics, with discussions of modular code and
object-oriented programming. CGI is covered in one chapter, but it is not the
focus on the book. The book relies heavily on longer working examples and code,
as opposed to small snippets and code fragments, and each chapter includes two
to three smaller complete examples and one major one that illustrates most of
the concepts for that chapter and builds on the chapters before it. Written by
Laura Lemay, this is her third major book after Sams Teach Yourself Web
Publishing with HTML in 21 Days and Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days.
