Web Service Software Factory 2010

These resources consist of patterns and architecture topics in the form of written guidance and models with code generation in the form of tools integrated with Visual Studio 2010. Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Studio 2005 users should use the Web Service Software Factory: Modeling Edition. On This Page. Solution Development Fundamentals. Solution development fundamentals cover the cross-cutting aspects of solution development, such as security, caching, data access, validation, exception management, and so on.

Solution Development Fundamentals

It also includes application architecture, development process, the software development life cycle (SDLC), and application life cycle guidance. You will find guidance and patterns that are generally applicable to solution development regardless of the specific architecture or scenario. Enterprise Library. Enterprise Library is a collection of application blocks that address common cross-cutting concerns that developers face when developing applications. The latest version of Enterprise Library (version 5.0) was released in April 2010 and includes support for Visual Studio 2010, as well as many performance and functionality improvements.

Snoop. Snoop (a WPF utility) The latest & greatest on Snoop including x64 support can now be found at the Snoop project on CodePlex.


Download SourceInstaller News Updated (after a long hiatus) to include .NET 3.5 support and a couple of extra tweaks and styling. There is a remaining issue where I broke the property value editing (sorry!) What A random utility made to simplify visual debugging of WPF applications at runtime. This is not an official tool, just a utility that was found useful and added to when functionality was needed.

Usage Run Snoop.exe. Once the application to be snooped is selected, click the Snoop icon ( )to launch Snoop. Building Snoop.csproj can be built using VS Express, but the complete solution requires the C++ compiler found in full VS. Primary View Graph of the visual tree on the left, list of properties on the selected element in the center, common events & preview area on the right The selected element will highlight with a red adorner in the target application.

SharePoint. Patterns & practices - Unity. Introduction to Unity. By using dependency injection frameworks and inversion of control mechanisms, developers can generate and assemble instances of custom classes and objects that can contain dependent object instances and settings.

Introduction to Unity

The Unity Application Block supports this functionality, allowing developers to use techniques such as container-configured injection, constructor injection, property injection, and method call injection to generate and assemble instances of objects complete with all dependent objects and settings. The Unity Application Block exposes two methods for registering types and mappings with the container: RegisterType. This method registers a type with the container.

Many also include a reference implementation. Exploring the Observer Design Pattern. Doug Purdy, Microsoft Corporation Jeffrey Richter, Wintellect January 2002 Summary: This article discusses the use of design patterns in the Microsoft .NET Framework. An extremely powerful tool for developers or architects in development projects, design patterns ensure that common problems are addressed via well-known and accepted solutions, and that correct code is developed more rapidly, reducing the chance that a mistake will occur in design or implementation. (21 printed pages) Contents. Enterprise Library. Patterns & practices Developer Center April 2013 The Microsoft Enterprise Library is a collection of reusable software components (application blocks) designed to assist software developers with common enterprise development cross-cutting concerns (such as logging, validation, data access, exception handling, and many others). Application blocks are a type of guidance; they are provided as source code, test cases, and documentation that can be used "as is," extended, or modified by developers to use on complex, enterprise-level line-of-business development projects.

Patterns & practices – Enterprise Library. This guide explains the opportunities open to you for migrating applications built using Enterprise Library versions 3.1, 4.0, and 4.1, and versions 1.0 and 1.1 of Unity to use version 5.0 or Enterprise Library and version 2.0 of Unity. Patterns & practices - GAX Extensions Library. Visual Studio Application Lifecycle Management. By using the suite of client-server tools in Visual Studio Team Foundation Server 2013, you can apply proven practices to manage your application's lifecycle. You can manage source code across your team; develop, build, and test your application; plan projects, track work, and report progress. TFS provides version control, a build system, and Agile planning tools and metrics for managing software development projects. Once you’ve got your project up and running, you can use these additional tools to support the design, code quality, and deployment of your applications.

Developers, architects, and testers typically connect to TFS through Visual Studio. WPF Hands-On Lab: Get Started with the Prism Library. In this lab, you will learn the basic concepts of the Composite Application Guidance for WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) and apply them to create a Composite Application Library solution that you can use as the starting point for building a composite WPF application. After completing this lab, you will be able to do the following: You will understand the basic concepts of the Composite Application Guidance for WPF. Developer's Guide to Microsoft Prism.

Unity Application Block. Patterns & practices Developer Center August 2013 The Unity Container (Unity) is a lightweight, extensible dependency injection container with optional support for instance and type interception. The Unity Container (Unity) is a lightweight, extensible dependency injection container. It facilitates building loosely coupled applications and provides developers with the following advantages: Simplified object creation, especially for hierarchical object structures and dependencies Abstraction of requirements; this allows developers to specify dependencies at run time or in configuration and simplify management of crosscutting concerns Increased flexibility by deferring component configuration to the container Service location capability; this allows clients to store or cache the container Instance and type interception Registration by convention The Unity Application Block, like many patterns & practices deliverables, is associated with a community site.
