This section describes design overview of a simple ASP application, hyBook, a guest book application.
After I published by tutorial notes on my Web site, I wanted to provide a guestbook tool
to allow visitors to share their comments with other visitors and myself. So I started
to put together a simple guestbook application in ASP with MS Access database.
While doing this, I have collected many interesting notes that might be useful to you.
Let me first provide you some design highlights before going into any details.
- hyBook should allow visitors to view all existing comments collected in the guestbook.
- hyBook should allow visitors to enter new comments anonymously.
- hyBook should organize comments by topics.
- hyBook should allow Webmasters to manage topics and comments.
- Two tables will be used in hyBook: "Topic" stores topics, and "Comment" stores comments.
Both tables will be stored in a MS Access database file.
- A single ASP page will be used for visitors to enter new comment and view existing comments.
- Two ASP page will be used for Webmaster to manage topics and comments.
- All ASP pages should be as secure as possible.
- All ASP pages should be configurable to allow Webmaster to merge into existing Website layout
