Description : As business becomes more and more global, software developers increasingly need to make applications multi-lingual and culturally aware. The .NET Framework may well have the most comprehensive support for internationalization and globalization of any development platform to date, and .NET Internationalization teaches developers how to unlock and utilize that support. Experienced international application developer Guy Smith-Ferrier covers the internationalization of both Windows Forms and ASP.NET applications, using both Versions 1.1 and 2.0 of the .NET Framework. Smith-Ferrier not only teaches you the best ways to take advantage of the globalization and internationalization features built in to the .NET Framework and Visual Studio, he also provides original code to take globalized applications to the next level of international utility and maintainability. Key topics include • An introduction to the internationalization process and how localization and globalization are supported in Windows and the .NET Framework • The use of resource managers, cultures, resource DLLs, and localized strings, images, and files—including strongly typed resources • Detailed coverage of form localization in Windows Forms and Web Forms • Dealing with regional cultures and their casing, collation, and calendars • Managing right-to-left Middle-Eastern text and pictographic East Asian languages • How to use the book’s original resource administration utilities • How to translate resources with machine translation • How to create custom cultures and integrate them with the .NET Framework 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005 • How resource managers work and how to write custom resource managers, including a resource manager that uses a database • How to test your internationalization with FxCop using new and existing globalization rules • How to effectively include the translator in the internationalization process Whether you are a developer, architect, or manager, if you are involved in international applications with the .NET Framework, this is the one book you need to read and understand before you start development. Guy Smith-Ferrier is an author, developer, trainer, and speaker with more than 20 years of software engineering experience. He has internationalized applications in four development platforms, including the .NET Framework. A frequent conference speaker, Guy is the author of C# and .NET courseware and has written numerous articles. You can read his blog at www.guysmithferrier.com.
Description : “Whether this is the first time or the fifty-first time you’re using WCF, you’ll learn something new by reading this book.” --Nicholas Allen, Program Manager, Web Services, Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is the easiest way to produce and consume Web services on the Microsoft platform. With .NET 3.5, WCF has been extensively revamped--and Visual Studio 2008 gives developers powerful new tools for utilizing it. Essential Windows Communication Foundation shows developers exactly how to make the most of WCF with .NET 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008. Drawing on extensive experience working with early adopters, three Microsoft insiders systematically address the topics developers ask about WCF. The authors approach each subject with practical advice and present best practices, tips, and tricks for solving problems. Throughout, you’ll find detailed explanations, solutions for the “pain points” of WCF development, and an extensive collection of reusable code examples. Coverage includes Using WCF contracts to define complex structures and interfaces Understanding WCF’s channel stacks and channel model architecture Configuring the WCF communication stack to use only the protocols you need Using standard and custom service behaviors to manage concurrency, instances, transactions, and more Serializing data from .NET types to XML Infosets and representing Infosets “on the wire” Hosting WCF services via IIS, managed .NET applications, and Windows Activation Services WCF security, in depth: authentication; transport and message-level security; and Internet and intranet scenarios Improving reliability: exception handling, diagnostics, and more Workflow services: new integration points between WCF 3.5 and Windows Workflow Foundation Building client-to-client, peer network-based applications Utilizing WCF for non-SOAP Web services: AJAX and JSON examples and .NET 3.5 hosting classes Microsoft’s Steve Resnick, Richard Crane, and Chris Bowen are technology experts at the Microsoft Technology Center in Boston. They specialize in helping customers improve their technical agility by applying WCF and related technologies. Resnick has specialized in Internet technologies and distributed computing at Microsoft since 1995. He is a frequent speaker at Microsoft events and is now technology director for the U.S. Microsoft Technology Centers. Crane has more than 15 years of experience in senior software development roles. He specializes in large-scale Web sites, distributed computing, transactional systems, and performance analysis. Bowen has been an architect and developer for more than 15 years at companies such as Monster.com and Staples and is co-author of Professional Visual Studio 2005 Team System.

Description : Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs)--languages geared to specific vertical or horizontal areas of interest--are generating growing excitement from software engineers and architects. DSLs bring new agility to the creation and evolution of software, allowing selected design aspects to be expressed in terms much closer to the system requirements than standard program code, significantly reducing development costs in large-scale projects and product lines. In this breakthrough book, four leading experts reveal exactly how DSLs work, and how you can make the most of them in your environment. With Domain-Specific Development with Visual Studio DSL Tools , you'll begin by mastering DSL concepts and techniques that apply to all platforms. Next, you'll discover how to create and use DSLs with the powerful new Microsoft DSL Tools--a toolset designed by this book's authors. Learn how the DSL Tools integrate into Visual Studio--and how to define DSLs and generate Visual Designers using Visual Studio's built-in modeling technology. In-depth coverage includes Determining whether DSLs will work for you Comparing DSLs with other approaches to model-driven development Defining, tuning, and evolving DSLs: models, presentation, creation, updates, serialization, constraints, validation, and more Creating Visual Designers for new DSLs with little or no coding Multiplying productivity by generating application code from your models with easy-to-use text templates Automatically generating configuration files, resources, and other artifacts Deploying Visual Designers across the organization, quickly and easily Customizing Visual Designers for specialized process needs List of Figures List of Tables Foreword Preface About the Authors Chapter 1 Domain-Specific Development Chapter 2 Creating and Using DSLs Chapter 3 Domain Model Definition Chapter 4 Presentation Chapter 5 Creation, Deletion, and Update Behavior Chapter 6 Serialization Chapter 7 Constraints and Validation Chapter 8 Generating Artifacts Chapter 9 Deploying a DSL Chapter 10 Advanced DSL Customization Chapter 11 Designing a DSL Index
