Chapter 16. Putting It All Together

In this chapter, you will use many of the skills acquired so far to build a set of integrated applications. The goal of these applications is to track the relative sales standings of my books on C#, ASP.NET, and VB.NET (and to make the architecture extensible so that as new books arrive, you can add them at will).

When the work is done, you will be able to display the results in a web application, not unlike the one shown in Figure 16-1. To see how various technologies work, you'll build this first as a "screen-scraper" application, and then again as a Web Services client.
