Part of the Integrated .NET Series, this book fills the need for an efficient methodology for migrating applications to .NET. The methodology presented not only provides technical guidance during migration, but it also provides increased productivity in the migration process it self. The book gives a brief introduction to the Microsoft .NET platform and covers the basic concepts of migration. It includes a detailed look at VB.NET, Managed VC++, and ASP.NET, outlining key differences as well as advantages over their predecessors. The book includes detailed steps on what is involved in migration. It also has a rich set of examples and case studies to cover important aspects of migration, including pre-migration and post-migration. The last section covers issues related to component migration and interoperability. Many companies would like to capitalize on the new features of .NET. These companies have already developed applications using earlier Microsoft technologies like Visual Basic 6.0, Visual C++ and ASP. In order for these companies to take advantage of the productivity gains as well as the new features offered by .N ET, it is imperative that they migrate their applications to Microsoft .NET technology.
