Course Description

Expand essential skills building web applications using Microsoft .NET technology acquired in the prerequisite course, ICT 713, into the areas of incorporating ADO.NET database programming into ASP.NET, programming and using web services, and exploring modern approaches to web programming with Ajax applications and ASP.NET MVC.

Course Details

Any web application of practical use requires access to a database. This course explores in depth the use of SQL data sources, object data sources, and a variety of server controls (including GridView, DetailsView, FormView, ListView, and DataPager) to retrieve and manipulate data from a database.

ASP.NET 4.5 allows building rich Internet applications (RIA) that provide enhanced user interface, advanced functionality and quick response times. One way to build RIA is to use Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (Ajax).

The second part of this course introduces ASP.NET Ajax applications and two ways ASP.NET 4.5 supports building web services: the WCF and Web API.

This course concludes with introductory exploration of the alternative approach to developing ASP.NET web applications with Model-View-Controller (MVC) design pattern.

Course-Level Learning Outcomes

By completion of this course, successful students will be able to:

  • Develop an ASP.NET application that accesses and modifies data from a relational database like SQL Server using SQL data sources and/or object data sources and appropriate web server controls
  • Create a web service and a website that consumes it
  • Create a simple web application that follows the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern
