.NET 3.5 is Microsoft’s largest development software launch since .NET 2.0 and (unlike .NET 3.0) completely replaces all previous .NET versions. A new version of Visual Studio – Visual Studio ‘Orcas’ is being created for the new Framework together with new versions of both the C# and Visual Basic languages. This book deals with this new C# language and provides developers with a complete treatise on the new technology – explaining the importance of all the new features (lambda expressions, LINQ, ASP.NET AJAX, WPF everywhere) and how they integrate into the framework of the previous .NET versions. It is a comprehensively revised and updated version of the author’s previous award-winning titles.
ASP.NET 2.0 Programming: Problem Design Solution is aimed at describing, designing, and implementing a site much like the ones you’re probably working on or will be soon, while taking the opportunity to introduce and explain many of the new features that the new great ASP.NET 2.0 framework offers. Difficult problems are addressed head-on so you'll be ready for most of the problems you’ll typically face when writing a modern website, and have one or more solutions ready for them. Unlike many other ASP.NET books that show examples for individual pages or features, the example in this book is an integrated end-to-end site (written in C#). The entire book and site has been written specifically for ASP.NET 2.0, to use the ASP.NET 2.0 features wherever they make sense. The end-result is a website which features a layout with user-selectable themes, a membership system, a content management system for publishing and syndicating articles and photos, polls, mailing lists, forums, an e-commerce store with support for real-time credit card processing, homepage personalization, and localization. The book leads the reader through development of a site with: Account registration, personalization and theming News and events, organized into categories Opinion polls Newsletter Forums E-commerce store with shopping cart and order management Localization Administration of a site will be covered including: Full online back-end administrative section, to manage practically all data from an intuitive user interface Site deployment In building these site features, you'll learn these new ASP.NET 2.0 features: Master pages Theming Personalization & Web parts Membership & Profile modules Personalization The new server-side UI controls such as GridView, DetailsView, FormView, Wizard, MultiView, the new xxxDataSource and navigation controls, among others. The new compilation mode and deployment modes The new framework for instrumenting the site, as well as handling & logging exceptions The new ADO.NET 2.0 features (e.g. caching with database dependency) The new classes for easy distributed transactions Management This book is also available as part of the 5-book ASP.NET 2.0 Wrox Box (ISBN: 0-470-11757-5). This 5-book set includes: Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Special Edition (ISBN: 0-470-04178-1) ASP.NET 2.0 Website Programming: Problem - Design - Solution (ISBN: 0764584642 ) Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Security, Membership, and Role Management (ISBN: 0764596985) Professional ASP.NET 2.0 Server Control and Component Development (ISBN: 0471793507) ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips (ISBN: 0764597663) CD-ROM with more than 1000 pages of bonus chapters from 15 other .NET 2.0 and SQL Server(TM) 2005 Wrox books DVD with 180-day trial version of Microsoft(r) Visual Studio(r) 2005 Professional Edition
