Welcome to the exciting world of e-business and e-commerce. This book is by an old guy and two young guys. The old guy (HMD; Massachusetts Institute of Technology 1967) has been programming and/or teaching programming for 40 years. The two young guys (PJD; MIT 1991 and TRN; MIT 1992) have each been programming and/or teaching programming for 19 years. The old guy programs and teaches from experience; the young guys do so from an inexhaustible reserve of energy. The old guy wants clarity; the young guys want performance. The old guy seeks elegance and beauty; the young guys want results. We got together to produce a book we hope you will find informative, challenging and entertaining.
E-business and e-commerce are evolving rapidly, if not explosively. This creates tremendous challenges for us as authors, for our publisher—Prentice Hall, for instructors, and for students and professional people. Why We Wrote e-Business and e-Commerce: How to Program
e-Business and e-Commerce How to Program is the seventh book in the Deitel/Prentice Hall How to Program series. It is distinguished by its focus on Web-based application development (emphasized in our server-side treatment) and using it to create effective online businesses.
We have emphasized color throughout the book. The World Wide Web is a colorful, multimedia-intensive medium. It appeals to our visual and audio senses. Someday it may even appeal to our senses of touch, taste and smell as well! We suggested to our publisher, Prentice Hall, that they should publish this book in color. The use of color in this book is crucial to understanding and appreciating scores of the book's programs. From the start, the Web has been a color-intensive medium. We hope it helps you develop more appealing Web-based applications.
Many books about the Web concentrate on developing attractive Web pages. We certainly discuss that subject intensely. But more important, the key focus of this book is really Web-based applications development focused on building e-businesses. Our audiences want to build real-world, industrial-strength, Web-based e-businesses. These audiences care about good looking Web pages. But they also care about client/server systems, databases, distributed computing, etc. In the world of business, success depends on both marketing and reliability.
Many books about the Web are reference manuals with exhaustive listings of features. That is not our style. We concentrate on creating real applications. We provide the live-code examples on the CD accompanying this book so that you can run the applications and see and hear for yourself the multimedia outputs. One of the most exciting features of this text is an introduction to Macromedia's Flash—a cutting-edge multimedia technology for developing Web-based applications. It allows the user to develop interactive animated movies at a fraction of the size of traditional media file types. A Flash movie can be embedded into a Web site or run as a stand-alone program. You will learn how to make Flash movies with sound and interactive features that can be incorporated into your e-business Web sites.
The Web is an artist's paradise. Your creativity is your only limitation, but the Web contains so many tools and mechanisms to leverage your abilities that even if you are not artistically inclined, you can still create stunning outputs. Our goal is to help you master these tools and mechanisms so that you can maximize your creativity and development capabilities.
We are excited about the enormous range of possibilities the Internet and the Web offer. We performed extensive research for this book and located hundreds of Internet and Web resources (which we provide as live links on the CD-ROM that accompanies this book) to help you learn about building e-businesses. These links include general information, tutorials and demonstrations. Many of the demos are fun to try such as the E*TRADE investing game in which you can win cash prizes for participating in the demo. The resources also point you to lots of free stuff on the Internet.
This book is appropriate for students and professional people who wish to start their own ebusinesses. Many of the Internet and Web resources we include point you to turnkey solutions (some for a fee and some free) for creating e-businesses. You will also be able to use the programming technologies presented here to create e-businesses yourself (you will also need to connect with a bank and use an industrial-strength database system). Please read the tour of the book in Chapter 1 to familiarize yourself with the technologies we present for building real e-business and e; commerce applications.
We have worked hard to create hundreds of useful live-code examples to help you master Internet and Web programming quickly and effectively. All of the code examples are on the accompanying disk and are available for free download from our Web sites:
We cover in depth Microsoft's Dynamic HTML as a means of adding "dynamic content" to World-Wide-Web pages. Instead of creating Web pages with only text and static graphics, we use Dynamic HTML to make Web pages "come alive" with audios, videos, animations, interactivity and three-dimensional imaging. Dynamic HTML's features are precisely what businesses and organizations need to meet today's information processing requirements. Teaching Approach
E-Business and e-Commerce How to Program contains a rich collection of examples, exercises, and projects drawn from many fields to provide the student with a chance to solve interesting real-world problems. The book concentrates on the principles of good software engineering and stresses program clarity. We avoid arcane terminology and syntax specifications in favor of teaching by example. The book is written by educators who spend most of their time writing about, and teaching, edge-of-the-practice programming topics in industry classrooms worldwide for Deitel & Associates, Inc. The text emphasizes good pedagogy.
Live-Code Teaching Approach
The book is loaded with hundreds of live-code examples. This is the focus of the way we teach and write about programming, and the focus of each of our multimedia Cyber Classrooms as well. Each new concept is presented in the context of a complete, working program immediately followed by one or more windows showing the program's input/output dialog. We call this style of teaching and writing our live-code approach. We use programming languages to teach programming languages. Reading these programs is much like entering and running them on a computer.

"I'm an adult student currently in an OO/C++ class (earning my bachelor's in Computer Info. Systems). Our instructor is great in C and Java but has never taught OO/C++. But, today, I've been blessed. I found your C++ Interactive Training Course with CD. I also plan on learning Java as well, and now, thanks to your Interactive Training Course, I can fulfill my dream."
—Broxi Thomas, university student
"I wanted to offer kudos for your product. If every training CD utilized the same format, then learning new products would be easy. The format, resources and layout of the classroom is refreshing and useful. It is clean, quick and effective. I began with Chapter One and took notes and tried every exercise; reviewed and listened to every example. I understand the material so much better now that I am amazed. PLEASE produce cyber classrooms for EVERY software package and technology that is in existence today. You would be doing a "beyond the call of duty" service to the computer industry. Of course, you would be a little busy for the next millennium.... :) "
