Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Advanced Visual Basic needn't be hard. Professional VB 2005 with .NET 3.0 takes you into some pretty sophisticated territory without ever leaving you lost in the weeds.

The authors start with an intelligent primer on the core of the language, highlighting what's new and important, and making sure you're thoroughly comfortable with VB object-oriented development using abstraction, encapsulation, polymorphism and inheritance. (If you're finally migrating from less object-centric versions of VB, this coverage will be especially helpful.)

By Chapter 5 of this hefty 1,200-plus-page book, you're moving far beyond the basics. How do you make the most of generic types and methods? Namespaces? What are today's best practices for error handling (and how do VB 2005 exceptions differ from VB's old Err object)? What's new and important in ADO.NET 2.0 data access, and in ASP.NET 2.0's XML support? How can the .NET framework help you build more secure software?

After a practical introduction to Visual Studio 2005, you'll find expert guidance on building advanced Windows Forms applications, including software that integrates custom controls and leverages the powerful new Windows Presentation Foundation. There are thorough chapters on deploying VB 2005 applications and utilizing your legacy COM code. The authors then turn to building new workflow applications and web services, offering concise but effective discussions of topics such as Workflow Foundation and web service architecture.

When you're ready, this book will guide you through complex topics such as transactions and enterprise services; network programming with the System.Net namespace; even the Windows Communication Foundation, Microsoft's brand-spanking-new infrastructure for service-oriented programming. This book is impressively thorough: whatever your challenges in writing production code, you're likely to find the answers and techniques you're searching for. Bill Camarda, from the July 2007 Read Only
