ASP.NET-based Web applications provide a means of promulgating graduate research and disseminating student information. Integrated with MS SQL Server databases, they provide on-demand, near-instantaneous access to information without the need for special user training, directly to users. As a server-side technology, this platform takes advantage of Common Language Runtime, compiled code, Object Oriented Programming, and multiple programming languages. Using actual, functioning university systems, this study discusses the problems of and solutions for security, login mechanisms, data collection, data validation, data storage, search engines, user interfaces, user authentication and authorization, and data distribution.
