asp.net Application Design Help

P: n/a
I'm creating a data-centric asp.net application that will be using SQL
Server 2000. I'm looking for some articles, design tips, etc. to help me
decide how I should design my application. I realize this is an obtuse
request, but I just want to follow some best practices. Most of the
examples I see have a micro focus on one particular aspect or another of
technologies used in an asp.net application.

If I simply aggragate all of those types of examples and take a brute force
approach to my application, I'd end up with a ton of code directly in my
code-behind files that connect to the db, perform business logic, etc. This
doesn't appear to be a good approach. I'd like to see a simple example of a
well designed asp.net app. In particular, I want to see a high level
architectual view that would show what logical and physical layers typically
exist (i.e. asp.net presentation layer, business objects layer, data layer).
I'd also then like to see a couple of concrete round-trip examples using
that architecture so I could see how the various layers interact.

Most of the architecture articles I have seen really revolve around
constructing highly decoupled, generic data layers. I know I will be using
SQL Server 2000, so those seem to be a little overkill for my purposes. I'm
not sure if it would be best to have a simple class that was only
responsible for connection pooling, leasing out data connections, etc. Or
is it a best practice in asp.net/ado.net to create object wrappers (i.e.
classes that encapsulate the logical schema for the db) and the architecture
to support those wrapper classes.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
