Book: Expert VB 2005 Business Objects, Second Edition
This book is about application architecture, design, and development in .NET using objectorientedconcepts. The focus is on business-focused objects called business objects, and how toimplement them to work in various distributed environments, including web and client/serverconfigurations. The book makes use of a great many .NET technologies, object-oriented designand programming concepts, and distributed architectures.The first half of the book walks through the process of creating a framework to supportobject-oriented application development in .NET. This will include a lot of architectural conceptsand ideas. It will also involve some in-depth use of advanced .NET techniques to createthe framework.The second half of the book makes use of the framework to build a sample application withseveral different interfaces. If you wish, it’s perfectly possible to skip the first half of the book andsimply make use of the framework to build object-oriented applications.One of my primary goals in creating the CSLA .NET framework was to simplify .NET development.Developers using the framework in this book don’t need to worry about the details ofunderlying technologies such as remoting, serialization, or reflection. All of these are embeddedin the framework so that a developer using it can focus almost entirely on business logic andapplication design, rather than getting caught up in “plumbing” issues.
