Data-driven site navigation is among the niftiest and most useful features in ASP. NET 2. 0. To get it working, all you do is create an XML site map file (or a SQL site map if you're using the MSDNÃÂ®Magazine SqlSiteMapProvider), add a SiteMapDataSource, and bind a TreeView or Menu to the SiteMapDataSource.

Reliability requires the capacity to execute a sequence of operations in a deterministic way, even under exceptional conditions. This allows you to ensure that resources are not leaked and that you can maintain state consistency without relying on application domain unloading (or worse, process restarts) to fix any corrupted state. Unfortunately, in the.NET Framework, not all exceptions are deterministic and synchronous, which makes it difficult to write code that is always deterministic in its ability to execute a predetermined sequence of operations. In this article Stephen Toub will show you why, and explore features of the .NET Framework 2.0 that help you to mitigate these situations and write more reliable code.

In the February 2005 issue, I introduced five lesser-known features of ASP. NET 2. 0 that have the potential to make a significant impact on the security, performance, and robustness of your code (see Wicked Code: Five Undiscovered Features on ASP.
If you want to schedule ASP.NET tasks, one solution is to use a Web service to provide an interface to your ASP.NET application and build a Windows service that calls to it at scheduled intervals. Thus the ASP.NET application doesn't have to own the scheduling logic. Here the author shows how to schedule your ASP.NET tasks using a Windows service to initiate the Web service call because Windows services can start themselves when Windows boots up.
