Designing Distributed Applications (Published by Apress on 5/1/1999)
Using Stephen's 5 Principles of Cooperative Network Application Development, you can create applications that can promote themselves on the network, sharing data and logic with clients of varying levels of sophistication. Using XML to define data exchange in such a way that future applications will also be able to negotiate an exchange format - even in the face of minor programming errors or evolving data definitions. Using LDAP this can take place on a network where we query for the services without knowing their location. The result is a distributed computing environment that will remain robust while users and resources are in flux.

Professional ASP Techniques for Web Masters (Published by Apress on 8/1/1998)
This book is aimed at anybody who is building a Web site using Windows NT Server, and especially those that use SQL Server as the data source (though the techniques can equally well be implemented with other data sources instead). The bulk of the book is about Active Server Pages, with some Active Server Components thrown in. Readers will need to be reasonably familiar with ASP and the way that it works, and with the syntax of SQL-the language. It isn't designed to teach newcomers to ASP or SQL about these languages. Because it is based solidly around real-world situations and working examples, it is ideal for the busy webmaster, Web site administrator, plus the budding designers and implementers that are just getting started building their first site.
