There are a few Java/Hibernate books out there, a couple chapters here and there on .NET/NHibernate, but a glaring vacuum for published material concerning the development of ASP.NET/NHibernate applications, specifically. ASP.NET certainly has plenty of special cases when it comes to integrating NHibernate and a book dedicated to the subject seems warranted.
I'm not implying anything by this post's title...but just assume, for a moment, hypothetically of course, that a book were in the works for using NHibernate with ASP.NET... A short sampling of topics would include getting started with NHibernate (including the 80% of NHibernate that you use regularly), unit testing with NUnit and FitNesse, generics, open-session-in-view, passive view & supervising controller (model-view-presenter), multiple databases, usage of interceptors, web services, advanced topics, many others...and most importantly...putting it all together.
1) Would this interest you? Would you, instead, be more interested in a book concerning NHibernate with .NET 3.0?
2) What other ASP.NET/NHibernate topics, or areas of difficulty, would you want covered? Personalization, membership, web parts, etc?
3) Finally, what type of book flow works best for you? An assortment of design ideas such as Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture or Domain Driven Design; a start to finish application-building book such as Agile Web Development with Rails or ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming; or somewhere in between like Applying Domain-Driven Design and Patterns?
Thanks for any feedback you can provide!
