This guide helps you to quickly grasp what Enterprise Library can do for you, presents examples, and makes it easier for you to start experimenting with Enterprise Library. Enterprise Library is made up of a series of application blocks, each aimed at managing specific cross-cutting concerns.
The guide will walk you through the most common usage scenarios for each of the functional application blocks, including:
The guide also demonstrates various ways of configuring Enterprise Library blocks. Let Enterprise Library do the heavy lifting for you and spend more time focusing on your business logic and less on application plumbing.
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.
Use this set of Hands-on Labs as a guide to learn about the application blocks included with Enterprise Library 4.1 and practice how to leverage their capabilities in various application contexts.
It includes Caching, Cryptography, Data Access, Exception Handling, Interception, Logging, Security, Validation, and Unity Hands-on Labs.
A book that introduces .NET programmers to patterns for including parallelism in their applications. Examples of these patterns are parallel loops, parallel tasks and data aggregation with map-reduce. Each pattern has its own chapter. Each chapter includes a description of the problem, an example of where the pattern is applicable, and code that implements the solution. On this site you will find; a preliminary draft of the book, the accompanying code samples and answers to the end of chapter questions.
