Overview

Fully updated for version 1.1 of the .NET Framework, .NET Framework Essentials, 3rd Edition is an objective, concise, no-nonsense overview of the Microsoft .NET Framework for developing web applications and services. Written for intermediate to advanced VB, C/C++, Java, and Delphi developers, .NET Framework Essentials, 3rd Edition is also useful to system architects and leaders who are assessing tools for future projects.

.NET Framework Essentials touches all the bases—from the Common Language Run-Time (CLR) and key class libraries to the specialized packages for ASP.NET, Windows Forms, XML Web Services, and data access (ADO.NET). The authors survey each major .NET language, including VB.NET, C#, J#, and Managed C++, as well as MSIL, clearing away the noise and hype, and presenting a clear, practical look at the underlying technologies. .NET Framework Essentials also provides a handy reference to the most commonly used features of .NET Framework.

Written by two veteran web applications developers, .NET Framework Essentials, 3rd Edition is one of the most complete, concise, and ultimately useful books to describe the breadth of technology represented by .NET.

Compact and free of fluff or proprietary hype, .NET Framework Essentials is an outstanding value for experienced programmers and architects who need to get up to speed quickly.

Meet the Author

Thuan L. Thai started computer programming 15 years ago but has never been tired with this hobby—one that he truly considers an art. He is currently a senior systems engineer at SAIC where he has led the architecture and development of several successful distributed and COM-based imaging systems. He also teaches Win32, MFC, and COM programming courses for Learning Tree International. Prior to all this, Thuan worked for AMS where he developed multi-tiered, object frameworks using C++ and RPC. He received his bachelor of science in computer science from the University of Virginia.

When not developing software, Thuan enjoys strumming his six strings and writing songs every now and then. He often plays 9-ball with the same buddies with whom he has played the game for over eight years. Thuan hopes to play more tennis, the only sport that he has ever played for more than eight hours in a single day.

Hoang Lam is a senior developer at CrossTier.com and an instructor in web development at George Washington University through DevXpert. At CrossTier.com, he specializes in developing B2B web sites using Microsoft tools.

    Thorough Look at .NET

    This book is based on a course that its authors have put together for those wishing to learn more about this new technology from Microsoft. Created as Microsoft's 'answer' to Java, it's designed to provide web apps and services. .NET is made up of many components, including the most important Common Language Runtime, and also shared components, distributed components, transactions, and object pooling. All of these are described in great detail. Discussion is also given to how XML plays a part in .NET technology and the end of the book contains related reference material. This book contains a thorough overview of .NET.
