|.NET Enterprise Design with VB.NET and SQL Server 2000|
Chapter 3: Testing
Although most system architecture books include a chapter on testing toward the end of the book, I believe that testing should be considered in the beginning of every project and at every step along the way. Therefore, I am including a chapter dedicated to testing early on in this book, in the hope that you will plan and design your projects with testing in mind.

Chapter 13: Internet Information Server
Historically (meaning, in web terms, within the last two years), the job of World Wide Web servers was simply to offer up HTML files as requested by Web
|Advanced Microsoft Visual Basic 5|
Chapter 9: Year 2000
What, you might ask, is the Year 2000 topic doing in a Visual Basic book? Isn't the Year 2000 problem (or the Millennium Bug, as the media like to call it--even though the new millennium doesn't actually begin until 2001) a mainframe problem for COBOL programmers to fix? I'll answer both these questions in this chapter.

Chapter 6: Common Object Operations
In this chapter, I'll describe how to properly implement the operations that all objects must exhibit. Specifically, I'll talk about object equality, identity, hash codes, and cloning.
|ASP Programmer's Reference |
Sample Chapter: What is ASP?
It wouldn't be any use to you if we just wrote down what's in ASP. We could just sell you a cheat sheet. Syntax is nothing if you don't know what surrounds that code, how the code fits into the environment it's built for and how to fix the code when it's broken. So in this chapter, before we hit the specifics, we'll cover the generalities.
|ATL COM Programmer's Reference|
Sample Chapter: Creating Objects
In the last chapter, you saw how to create a new ATL project. The chapter glossed over how objects are actually created, because that’s the very purpose of this chapter! As you'll see, there are several ways to create objects.
|C# Design and Development Expert One on One|
Chapter 1 - Defining the Language Environment
Most professional programmers use more than one programming language. A programmer who relies on a single language for every task is like a carpenter who treats everything as a nail. Just as carpenters use a particular fastener for a specifi c need, programmers rely on programming languages that suit an individual development need. This chapter approaches the use of a particular programming language to meet a specifi c need in a development environment. Throughout the chapter, you discover how the language environment determines not only which language will work best but also how you interact with the language you select.
|CyberRookies 3D Game Creation, W/CD|
Chapter 1: Your Game Studio
In short, a game development system is a computer system adequate for developing your game and all of its components. A game development system can range from a low-end, inexpensive machine for simple game productions to a high-end machine that costs thousands of dollars.

A message to mapmakers: highways are not painted red, rivers don't have county lines running down the middle, and you can't see contour lines on a mountain. For some time now my work has concerned the representation of information in computers.
|Early Adopter VoiceXML|
Chapter 7: VoiceXML with XSLT (HTML and WML)
This chapter examines the use of the Extensible Stylesheet Language for Transformations (XSLT) as a tool for the generation of VoiceXML. I intend to illustrate a complete, end-to-end example of implementing a voice interface for a client-server database via XML and XSL.
|Effective Awk Programming, Third Edition|
Chapter 9 : Internationalization with gawk
Until recently, the ability to provide internationalization was largely restricted to programs written in C and C++. This chapter describes the underlying library gawk uses for internationalization, as well as how gawk makes internationalization features available at the awk program level. Having internationalization available at the awk level gives software developers additional flexibility -- they are no longer required to write in C when internationalization is a requirement.
|Effective Awk Programming, Third Edition|
Chapter 10 : Advanced Features of gawk
This chapter discusses advanced features in gawk. It's a bit of a "grab bag" of items that are otherwise unrelated to each other. First, a command-line option allows gawk to recognize nondecimal numbers in input data, not just in awk programs. Next, two-way I/O, discussed briefly in earlier parts of this book, is described in full detail, along with the basics of TCP/IP networking and BSD portal files. Finally, gawk can profile an awk program, making it possible to tune it for performance.

|HTML The Definitive Guide, Third Edition|
Chapter 5: Rules, Images, and Multimedia
While the body of most HTML documents is text, an appropriate seasoning of horizontal rules, images, and other multimedia elements make for a much more inviting and attractive document. In this chapter, we describe in detail how you can insert special multimedia elements into your documents, when their use is appropriate, and how to avoid overdoing it.

|Java for COBOL Programmers|
Chapter 2: Introducing the Java Development Environment
Java’s designers had a number of primary design objectives. As we have seen, object orientation is one of them. Another is the premise that a program can be compiled on any machine and the output of the compiler simply moved to another machine, where it will execute without changes. This concept is captured in the Java mantra “Write once, run anywhere.”
Chapter 13: Windows and Frames
We begin this chapter with an overview of some of the most commonly used properties and methods of the Window object. Later sections of the chapter explain this material in more detail. As usual, the reference section contains complete coverage of Window object properties and methods.

|Professional XML Design and Implementation|
Chapter 2 Excerpt: XML Overview
Imagine a world where all information is stored in a way that enables it to be indexed, found and combined in a common format. Where, when you want to trade electronically with a new company, you can be sure you are using compatible systems. Where links between web sites are never broken. Where complex web sites are easy to maintain. Utopia? Perhaps, but this is the promise of XML.
|Programming C#, Second Edition|
Chapter 18: Attributes and Reflection
Throughout this book, I have emphasized that a .NET application contains code, data, and metadata. Metadata is information about the data--that is, information about the types, code, assembly, and so forth--stored along with your program. This chapter explores how some of that metadata is created and used.
