About the book:

Microsoft's .NET Framework borrows many concepts from Java but is currently only available on Windows. In .NET Framework Essential s the authors begin by describing .NET's architectural underpinnings, starting with the CLR--Common Language Runtime which underlies the Framework Base Classes--and the Common Language Specification.

The authors explain how the CLR supports PE--Portable Executable--files programmed in C#, Managed C++ and VB.NET. .NET Asemblies contain Intermediate Language and Metadata, which underlies PE file interoperability. .NET Framework tools extend interoperability to existing COM object s. Also covered are the joys of no more DLL hell or object registration.

.NET includes the Common Programming Model, which means once you know how to do something in one language you can do it in others. Suddenly, your programming skills are highly transferable. But most of the book is about the CLM services: I/O, Web, networking and so on; and how to use them. Naturally, ADO.NET and XML integration feature in all this and you'll learn it's place in Web Services, Windows Forms and We b Forms.

The concise example code neatly demonstrates the points the authors make as well as providing starting points for your own experiments with . NET programming.

.NET Framework Essentials leverages the knowledge of working Windows programmers to put the .NET Framework in context. Think of it as a springboard high enough to give you an overall view of the technology and enable you to dive in. A clear and lucid introduction to a complex new set of technologies. --Steve Patient
