This book gives experienced programmers the practical insight they need to build enterprise applications for Microsoft's .NET platform using Visual Basic. Using a running case study and extensive code examples, the authors illuminate essential .NET concepts, and introduce powerful new .NET technologies such as ADO.NET and ASP.NET. The book begins with a self-contained review of basic Visual Basic.NET syntax and technique; then rapidly moves on to in-depth coverage of VB.NET development with the .NET Framework. The authors begin their case study by developing a simple .NET console application, then add a Windows Forms interface, isolate functionality within components, provide database access via ADO.NET, secure the code, and finally, make its functionality accessible as a Web Service via ASP.NET. Along the way, they introduce each of .NET's most powerful features for developers, including interfaces, attributes, collections, file I/O and streams, debugging classes, threading, appdomains, context, remoting, security, component deployment and versioning, assemblies, the global assembly cache, and interoperability. All books in the Integrated .NET Series by Object Innovations and Prentice Hall PTR teach in a systematic, step-by-step manner, using rich examples and a shared case study that explains how .NET's features interact in the context of a real application. The books integrate perfectly: developers who want an even stronger understanding of the basics of Visual Basic can find it in the companion introductory title, Introduction to Visual Basic Using .NET.
