Overview

Packed with expert guidelines and advice, this is the advanced reference you need to customize common language runtime (CLR) applications now—and as you move to Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Microsoft program manager Steven Pratschner takes you inside the workings of the CLR, showing you how it functions, and how to tailor its features for the unique requirements of your application. You’ll go from configuring basic startup parameters to controlling critical runtime notations—including how code is loaded into the process, how memory is managed, and when code is scheduled to run. Find the detailed information and insights you need—and take full advantage of the increased flexibility and programmability of the CLR.

Discover how to:

  • Write your own CLR host—or customize the default host—to control startup and shutdown
  • Use application domains and domain managers to effectively isolate groups of assemblies
  • Learn key strategies for loading and customizing assemblies in extensible applications
  • Extend and customize the Code Access Security (CAS) system to help protect your extensible application
  • Unload a domain without leaking resources—and make code more reliable—using safe handles, critical finalizers, and constrained execution regions
  • Use the host protection feature for application-specific programming model constraints
  • Create and manage tasks with custom schedulers and thread pools

Covers Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0
