This hands-on, example-rich guide to .NET has two goals: to help you gain an in-depth understanding of .NET's architecture, and to use .NET's services to start building enterprise-class applications as quickly as possible. Pradeep Tapadiya begins by establishing a solid foundation for enterprise .NET programming. He reviews Microsoft's short and long-term goals for .NET, illuminates .NET's programming model and infrastructure, and walks through the entire process of building a .NET application, from development through deployment and maintenance. Next, he presents in-depth coverage of .NET's support for distributed computing and Web services; and its approach to interoperability with COM and non-COM-based legacy applications. Detailed chapters address concurrency and multithreading; new .NET server and client security issues; transaction processing; .NET mechanisms for optimizing scalability; and the effective use of reflection and assemblies. An accompanying CD-ROM contains all of the book's extensive source code. For all developers and project managers working with Microsoft technologies, and for every IT professional who wants a practical understanding of .NET.

Back cover copy

Enterprise-class .NET programming in C#--from a developer's perspective.

Internals of the .NET Framework--learn to get the most from its servicesBuild professional applications using C#--quickly and efficientlyHands-on approach covering the Base Class Library, Remoting, ASP .NET Web Services, concurrency, security, enterprise services, dealing with legacy code, and much more

.NET developers need more than buzzwords to get the job done. To tackle enterprise-class projects, they need both a real understanding of the .NET architecture and a working knowledge of how to put its services to work. In .NET Programming: A Practical Guide Using C#, .NET authority Pradeep Tapadiya takes a straightforward, hands-on approach to explain everything you need to know from development to deployment and maintenance for this platform--all from a developer's perspective. Using C# as the primary language, and with plenty of code examples throughout, this book is an excellent way to learn:

The .NET infrastructure--packaging and deployment, the common language runtime and its services, and the .NET Framework class libraries Distributed computing--develop object-remoting applications for intranets and Web services for the InternetHow to develop thread-safe code using the .NET synchronization infrastructure and learn asynchronous programmingInteroperability with native DLLs and COM applicationsHow to develop secure applications using role-based security and enforce security for third-party applications using code access permissionsEnterprise services--develop scalable applications, support transactions, and more.

Appropriate for experienced developers, .NET Programming will help you get the most from the .NET architecture--today.
