Scalable Vector Graphics. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.

Scalable Vector Graphics

The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviors are defined in XML text files. This means that they can be searched, indexed, scripted, and compressed. As XML files, SVG images can be created and edited with any text editor, but are more often created with drawing software. Overview[edit] This image illustrates the difference between bitmap and vector images. SVG has been in development since 1999 by a group of companies within the W3C after the competing standards Precision Graphics Markup Language (PGML, developed from Adobe's PostScript) and Vector Markup Language (VML, developed from Microsoft's RTF) were submitted to W3C in 1998.

Hibernate Best Practices. IDictionary Options - Performance Test - SortedList vs. SortedDictionary vs. Dictionary vs. Hashtable. Please note that the advantage of Hashtable over generic Dictionary for insert and search operations demonstrated here is actually because the tests are based on NON generic IDictionary interface, so each insert or search action is accompanied with check for the key type.

IDictionary Options - Performance Test - SortedList vs. SortedDictionary vs. Dictionary vs. Hashtable

For more information see the Sean's comment below. (Thanks Sean!) Without that Dictionary seem to perform better than the Hashtable. The rest of the test conclusions will not be affected. So to summarize, generic Dictionary is the absolute winner for insert and search operations if used with generic dictionary interface or directly. This is a sequence of tests comparing the performance results for four different implementations of IDictionary and in particular generic Dictionary, generic SortedDictionary, the old non-generic Hashtable and generic SortedList. I performed the tests in five stages, to observe the relationship between the number of entries and the performance. This is the chart of the memory usage: C# Reference.

XAML Overview (WPF)

As applied to the .NET Framework programming model, XAML simplifies creating a UI for a .NET Framework application. You can create visible UI elements in the declarative XAML markup, and then separate the UI definition from the run-time logic by using code-behind files, joined to the markup through partial class definitions. XAML directly represents the instantiation of objects in a specific set of backing types defined in assemblies. This is unlike most other markup languages, which are typically an interpreted language without such a direct tie to a backing type system. XAML enables a workflow where separate parties can work on the UI and the logic of an application, using potentially different tools.

When represented as text, XAML files are XML files that generally have the .xaml extension. The following example shows how you might create a button as part of a UI. An object element typically declares an instance of a type. Enterprise Integration Patterns - Messaging Bridge. Windows Workflow Foundation Overview. Windows Workflow Foundation is a framework that enables users to create system or human workflows in their applications written for Windows Vista, Windows XP, and the Windows Server 2003 operating systems.

Windows Workflow Foundation Overview

It consists of a namespace, an in-process workflow engine, and designers for Visual Studio 2005. Windows Workflow Foundation can be used to solve simple scenarios, such as showing UI controls based on user input, or complex scenarios encountered by large enterprises, such as order processing and inventory control. Windows Workflow Foundation comes with a programming model, a rehostable and customizable workflow engine, and tools for quickly building workflow-enabled applications on Windows. Scenarios that Windows Workflow Foundation addresses include:

Demos - APE (Ajax Push Engine) Build a Google IG like AJAX Start Page in 7 days using ASP.NET AJAX and .NET 3.0. Update: There's a new article which explains the latest development of this project.

Build a Google IG like AJAX Start Page in 7 days using ASP.NET AJAX and .NET 3.0

Read here. Introduction I will show you how I built a start page similar to Google IG in 7 nights using ASP.NET AJAX, .NET 3.0, LINQ, DLinq and XLinq. I have logged my day to day development experience in this article, and documented all the technical challenges, interesting discoveries and important design and architectural decisions. You will find the implementation quite close to the actual Google IG. Updates. Chapter 1. Using Spring AMQP. Chapter 1.

Chapter 1. Using Spring AMQP

Using Spring AMQP In this chapter, we will explore interface and classes that are the essential components for developing applications with Spring AMQP. The Spring AMQP project consists of a few assemblies. The assembly Spring.Messaging.Amqp contains the classes that represent the core AMQP "model". Our intention is to provide generic abstractions that do not rely on any particular AMQP broker implementation or client library. The overview here assumes that you are already familiar with the basics of the AMQP specification already. Chapter 1: Authentication Patterns.
