VB.NET and VBScript

I would like to know if VB.Net is enough  to build Web applications or do I have to know VBScript also.

I mean web applications where clients use web browser and send queries to the server and get answers.

Thanks

Yes.  You would build your web apps using ASP.NET but the language is VB.NET. VBScript is not required.  In the olden days of classic ASP, you would need a combination of VB, VBScript and JavaScript to create useful web pages.

Hope this helps.

Do I need to learn both vb.net and asp.net  or just one?

Web development is different than windows development because you are developing using different tools and objects.  The programming language is the same so anything you learn in ASP.NET, for the most part, can be used in VB.NET (i.e., database connectivity code would be the same).

If you want to develop web applications, I would concentrate on learning the ASP.NET toolset and object model.  The beauty of .NET is that anything you learn studying ASP.NET will help you to develop anything in the .NET framework.

is the software used for ASP.net  in the visual studio.net 2003 CD? in the same CD where VB.net is installed from? or do we have to buy ASP.net CD separately?

JRossi1Commented:
All .net project types, including ASP.NET and VB.NET, are included in the Visual Studio installation.  So you don't have separate CD's for ASP.NET or VB.NET.  They come together.

Take a look at this:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/
