Converting a Web Design into a Web Application

Just as the Web designer is responsible for specifying the overall appearance of and interaction among the pages of a Web site, the programmer is responsible for the server-side implementation of that design. The implementation covers a lot of ground, including the following details:

  • ASP.NET Web pages (ASPX files)
  • user controls (ASCX files)
  • custom controls (DLL files)
  • code, including reusable classes (VB files)
  • database queries (SQL or stored procedures)
  • resources (RESX files)
  • configuration (CONFIG files)
  • deployment (DLL files and SETUP.EXE)

For a successful Web application, all of these pieces must work together flawlessly, must be scalable, and must be easy to maintain. Our aim with this book has been to show you how to use Visual Studio .NET and Visual Basic .NET to accomplish exactly that. The VB Snippets case study puts these tools to work to convert a Web design into an ASP.NET application.

When collaborating with a professional Web designer, you will already have created many of these pieces in prototype form before you ever receive the finished design. Once the design has been delivered, you need to complete the development of the Web application.
