Designed specifically for developing applications on Microsoft's NET platform, the innovative C# programming language is simple, type-safe, object- and component-oriented and Internet-savvy. In Programming C#, Third Edition, noted author Jesse Liberty gives experienced professionals the information they need to become productive quickly. Beginning with a rapid tour of basic C# language syntax, Part I introduces the keywords and concepts that make C# and NET an effective environment for building desktop and web-based applications, including: Classes and objects; Inheritance and polymorphism; Operator overloading; Structs and interfaces; Arrays, indexers, and collections; String handling and regular expressions; Exceptions and bug handling; Delegates and events. Part II teaches you how to use C# with three core application frameworks-ASP.NET, NET Windows Forms, and ADO.NET-to build typical desktop and Internet applications, including browser-oriented web applications and standards-based web services. Finally, in Part III, you'll learn how to tap the rich functionality of the NET Framework to manage deployment with assemblies, work with metadata, marshal objects across process and machine boundaries, work with threads, handle data streams, and integrate with legacy Windows APIs and COM objects.
All text and examples have been updated for Visual Studio NET 2003 and the NET Framework 1.1 SDK. Also new are extensive tips for java, C++, and VB6 programmers; revised chapters on delegates and events; and web applications and services.
