Web Development in Visual Studio 2010
In this lab, you'll look at several of the new web development features in Visual Studio 2010. You'll see how HTML code snippets speeds up the development of web applications. Visual Studio 2010 also makes it easier to manage multiple Web.config files for the various deployment environments of your web application. Finally, you'll see how Visual Studio 2010 integrates with the Microsoft Web Deployment tool to automate the packaging and deployment of your application and its dependencies.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 offers many new features for development of ASP.NET web applications. The goal of these new features is to aid developers in creating and deploying high quality and fully featured web applications quickly and easily.
Visual Studio 2010 now supports HTML code snippets. Snippets are a great way to generate high-quality code. There are many snippets that come with Visual Studio, and developers have the ability to create their own.
Another new feature which Visual Studio 2010 provides is the ability to transform the Web.config file for deployment. Visual Studio 2010 supports a rich configuration transformation language that allows developers to change elements in the Web.config file including connection string, file path locations, and service addresses.
Deployment of ASP.NET web applications is now easier due to new packaging and deployment features in Visual Studio 2010. Now web applications can be easily published to a specific location on the build machine (or even to a ZIP file) and easily deploy to either the Visual Studio Web Server or Windows Internet Information Server (IIS).
