Gain an expert, high-level understanding of Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0-including prerelease insights on the next version of Microsoft Visual Studio. What problems can .NET solve? What architectural approaches does it take to solve them? How do the major technologies-including Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0, Web Services Enhancements (WSE), and the .NET Compact Framework-fit the bigger picture? Author David Platt tackles these questions and more in his customary style-concise, witty, and ultimately pragmatic. He presents topics and examples from the top down, illuminating simpler concepts first then progressing to greater technical detail-meeting the needs of managers, architects, and code-hungry programmers all in a single, eminently readable guide. Get the insights and examples you need to work with: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 * Parameterize classes with the new "generics" mechanism * Recover unmanaged resources with enhanced garbage collector methods * Use ClickOnce deployment for easy software installation and updates Web Services Enhancements/WSE 2.0 * Facilitate user authentication and packet signing-without writing code * Control WSE administratively ASP.NET 2.0 * Use new Web Forms controls for a consistent, personalized user experience * Take advantage of built-in authentication and authorization capabilities * Run and debug projects on the desktop-without Internet Information Services (IIS) .NET Compact Framework * Exploit streamlined classes for fast, lightweight development and fewer bugs * Write resource-efficient code for the Pocket PC and other smart devices * Deliver maps and directions from a Smartphone Visual Studio 2005 * Download code samples in Microsoft Visual Basic and C# Includes two bonus chapters.
