  • Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional; 3 edition (April 30, 2007)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 020189551X

Object-Oriented Design with Applications has long been the essential reference to object-oriented technology, which, in turn, has evolved to join the mainstream of industrial-strength software development. In this third edition–the first revision in 13 years–readers can learn to apply object-oriented methods using new paradigms such as Java, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.0, and .NET.

The authors draw upon their rich and varied experience to offer improved methods for object development and numerous examples that tackle the complex problems faced by software engineers, including systems architecture, data acquisition, cryptoanalysis, control systems, and Web development. They illustrate essential concepts, explain the method, and show successful applications in a variety of fields. You’ll also find pragmatic advice on a host of issues, including classification, implementation strategies, and cost-effective project management.

New to this new edition are

  • An introduction to the new UML 2.0, from the notation’s most fundamental and advanced elements with an emphasis on key changes
  • New domains and contexts
  • A greatly enhanced focus on modeling–as eagerly requested by readers–with five chapters that each delve into one phase of the overall development lifecycle.
  • Fresh approaches to reasoning about complex systems
  • An examination of the conceptual foundation of the widely misunderstood fundamental elements of the object model, such as abstraction, encapsulation, modularity, and hierarchy

  • Hardcover: 448 pages
  • Publisher: Apress (April 28, 2008)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 159059973X

The Microsoft .NET Micro Framework is a small and efficient .NET runtime environment used to run managed code on devices that are too small and resource constrained for Windows CE and the Compact Framework.

Expert .NET Micro Framework will teach you everything you need to know in order to use the .NET Micro Framework to create effective embedded applications. It begins with the basics of accessing hardware and networking before delving deep into the less well–known areas such as cryptography and globalization, and how to use technologies such as wireless communication that are not directly supported by the .NET Micro Framework.

This book is a must if you want to get as much as possible out of the .NET Micro Framework to write powerful embedded applications.

Expert .NET Micro Framework also describes how to use resources, and write globalized and multilingual embedded applications. You will learn how to effectively use binary serialization to store data permanently in flash memory or exchange data with a PDA or PC. Topics like cryptography and encrypted data exchange with a .NET or Compact Framework application are covered.

What you’ll learn

  • Describes and compares wireless communication technologies and how to use them even if they are not directly supported by the .NET Micro Framework
  • Describes the whole class library and features of the .NET Micro Framework, illustrated by working examples
  • Demonstrates how to access hardware components with managed drivers and write applications with a graphical user interface
  • Includes a detailed description of how to effectively extend or write hardware emulators using undocumented features of the configuration engine and emulator components
    • Pro C# 2008 and the .NET 3.5 Platform, Fourth Edition
  • Who is this book for?

    This book is for anyone with an interest in creating embedded systems. Primarily, it is written for the benefit of .NET developers with a background in C#, but it will equally appeal to hardware developers with a background in Assembler, C, or C++ who will be impressed by the benefits that managed code can bring to their devices.

Professional .NET 2.0 Generics


  • Paperback: 408 pages
  • Publisher: WROX (October 17, 2005)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 0764559885

The power and elegance of generic types have long been acknowledged. Generics allow developers to parameterize data types much like you would parameterize a method. This brings a new dimension of reusability to your types without compromising expressiveness, type-safety, or efficiency. Now .NET generics makes this power available to all .NET developers. By introducing generic concepts directly into the Common Language Runtime (CLR), Microsoft has also created the first language-independent generics implementation. The result is a solution that allows generic types to be leveraged by all the languages of the .NET platform.

This book explores all aspects of the .NET generics implementation, covering everything from fundamental generic concepts, to the elements of generic syntax, to a broader view of how and when you might apply generics. It digs into the details associated with creating and consuming your own generic classes, structures, methods, delegates, and interfaces, examining all the nuances associated with leveraging each of these language constructs. The book also looks at guidelines for working with generic types, the performance gains achieved with generics, the new generic container libraries (BCL and third party), and key aspects of the underlying .NET implementation.

For those transitioning from C++, the book provides an in-depth look at the similarities and differences between templates and.NET generics. It also explores the syntactic variations associated with using generics with each of the .NET languages, including C#, Visual Basic, J#, and C++.

Foundations of ASP.NET AJAX


  • Paperback: 268 pages
  • Publisher: Apress; 2Rev Ed edition (November 12, 2007)
  • Language: English
  • ISBN-10: 1590598288

Since the emergence of Google Maps 12 months ago, Ajax programming techniques have become one of the hottest topics in the programming arena. To date, the frameworks available for creating these applications have been complex and have separated the development of the client–side Ajax (on the user’s machine) from the server–side supporting technology (on the company’s machines). This separation has made development slow and difficult.

ASP.NET AJAX is Microsoft’s solution to this problem. ASP.NET AJAX (formerly code–named Atlas) is a set of extensions to the existing ASP.NET 2.0 technology that provides you with a fast-and-simple environment to create Ajax applications. Microsoft has combined Ajax with ASP.NET technology and provided a unified set of development tools within Visual Studio 2005. For the first time, Ajax applications can be developed seamlessly in conjunction with a supporting technology.

Foundations of ASP.NET AJAX (written by Laurence Moroney the author of Apress successful Foundations of Atlas) gives you a detailed grounding in how ASP.NET AJAX works. It takes you swiftly through the basic principles of Ajax, then deep into the heart of the technology, where every namespace is discussed and every function considered. By the end of the book, you’ll know all the essentials to confidently produce cutting-edge ASP.NET AJAX applications swiftly and professionally. You will not need any reference beyond this book.

    Effective Use of Microsoft Enterprise Library: Building Blocks for Creating Enterprise Applications and Services


    • Paperback: 736 pages
    • Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional; 1 edition (June 9, 2006)
    • Language: English
    • ISBN-10: 0321334213

    Writing robust enterprise applications presents a special challenge for developers, but Microsoft has addressed that challenge with the free, downloadable Enterprise Library for the .NET Framework.

    Enterprise Library is a collection of application blocks and guidance documents that together provide functionality common to enterprise applications; each application block includes full source code. Lacking in the guidance provided by Microsoft is an overall roadmap to the process of using the application blocks. Effective Use of Microsoft Enterprise Library is that roadmap.

    Microsoft application development lead architect Len Fenster explains exactly how to build applications using Enterprise Library application blocks. Fenster covers all seven application blocks as implemented for .NET Framework 1.1, shows how to develop and use a new application block, and explains how Enterprise Library is changing for .NET Framework 2.0.

    Readers will learn

    • How the Configuration Application Block is designed and can be used at runtime to easily read and write configuration data
    • How the Configuration Application Block works at design time for all blocks
    • How to use the Data Access Block to create a portable data layer
    • How to use the Exception Handling Application Block to implement a policy-driven, application-wide exception handling system
    • How to use the Logging and Instrumentation Application Block to log and instrument messages independent of the message destination
    • How to add authentication, authorization, role membership, security cache, and profile membership features to an application with the Security Application Block
    • How to use the Cryptography Application Block to add functionality to encrypt and decrypt data and create and compare hashes
    • How to build your own application block and providers that “snap” right into Enterprise Library

    Whether you plan to extend Enterprise Library for your organization, or just use the existing application blocks to add functionality to your architecture in a consistent, extensible, integrated way, this book will guide you through the complexities and help you find a clear path to success.

    About the Author
    Len Fenster is the lead architect for .NET Development for Microsoft Consulting Service’s U.S. East Region. During his last eight years at Microsoft, he has focused on helping many enterprises create robust applications based on Microsoft technology. Most recently, Len has been working with the Microsoft patterns & practices team on the next version of Enterprise Library. Even before his career with Microsoft, Len led a global team of developers and architects that built distributed applications based on Microsoft technologies. Since the advent of .NET, Len has served as an enterprise architect for Microsoft Consulting Services and has leveraged his considerable experience to help many enterprises incorporate .NET into their own technology strategies. Len speaks on a regular basis to companies and at architecture forums about architecting solutions based on .NET and service oriented architecture.

    .NET 2.0 Interoperability Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach


    • Hardcover: 632 pages

    .NET represents a new and improved way of developing software for the Windows platform. Given the chance, you’d probably rewrite all of your existing code in the newer managed code environment that .NET provides. But it is difficult or impossible to throw out all existing legacy code and start over when a new technology arrives. Instead, you need to find a way to move forward with new .NET development while reusing existing pieces of tested, working code. You need a way to interoperate with the existing code until you have a chance to finally rewrite all of it in .NET.

    The only recipe-style book on the subject, .NET 2.0 Interoperability Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach guides Windows developers who are transitioning from native Windows code to .NET managed code. The book

    • Explains new interop features in .NET 2.0 and VS .NET 2005
    • Covers PInvoke, COM, and COM+ (other books don’t cover all three areas)
    • Features most of its example code in C# and VB .NET, and also includes some managed C++/CLI
    • Is written by a working developer with first-hand experience

    .NET tools will allow you to interoperate with existing code. But finding the appropriate tool for the task at hand can sometimes be a frustrating experience. So this book will guide you past myriad infrequently used interop options to focus on those you’ll use most often.
