Book: Microsoft Visual C++ .NET Professional Projects
Publisher: Premier Press
Use Visual C++ .NET to accomplish real-world, professional tasks. Incorporating ten hands-on projects, this book is your key to unlocking the power of Visual C++ .NET. Each project focuses on a specific concept and is based on a real-world situation. You will be able to use the skills that you develop throughout the book to modify the projects to fit your professional needs.This book provides a hands-on approach to learning Visual C++ .NET. The book is aimed at readers with programming knowledge of earlier versions of Visual C++. These readers are assumed to be experienced application developers who have knowledge of developing applications using any of the earlier versions of Visual C++.The book starts with a few overview chapters that cover the key concepts of MFC programming that remain unchanged in the new version of Visual C++ — VC++.NET. These chapters basically revisit the concepts of MFC programming with adequate sample applications.A major part of the book revolves around professional projects. These multiple projects are based on real-life situations. These projects follow a simple to complex approach to cover specific subject areas and guide the readers in implementing their learning in practical scenarios. The projects range from simple projects, such as creating an MFC-based database-centric application and a GDI+ application using Managed C++, to complex projects, such as creating COM components, an ATL Server, class libraries, Web services, and projects illustrating the implementation of COM interoperability with .NET components, XML, networking, and remoting. These projects help readers to accomplish their goals by understanding the practical and real-life applications of Visual C++ .NET.
