Chapter 11. ASP.NET Deployment
To end Part I of the book, we've saved the best for last. Why do we call it the best? Because compared to classic ASP, deploying an ASP.NET application is extremely simple. In fact, in many cases, you can deploy an application by copying the entire application structure to a new IIS application folder on the target server.
This chapter discusses both simple deployment scenarios, for which the DOS XCOPY command or Windows Explorer are all you'll need. It also discusses more involved scenarios, such as using the Visual Studio Web Setup project type to deploy your application.
