|What is Mircosoft .NET?
An overview of what .NET is and how and why it is significant.
This module introduces the big picture for .NET and how it was created.
It Introduces the Microsoft .NET Framework and its major features: the
Common Language Runtime (CLR), and multiple language support. Learn
the concepts of .NET Framework, the Uniform Class Libraries, and the major
classes it provides. Discuss what assemblies are and how they fit into the picture.
Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
Explores major features of Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET and its
the integrated development environment, the modelers, automation and
run-time features, such as forms and wizards. Learn how to use the major
features, such as creating an application and using the toolbox, server explorer,
and other features from a high level
Microsoft .NET-based Languages
This includes Microsoft Visual Basic®, Microsoft Visual C++®, and
Microsoft Visual C#T development systems and more. Developers can
use the correct language for the job they need because the .NET
Framework is language neutral and all code modules are reusable. The
module focuses on the new features provided by the .NET Framework,
such as namespaces and attributes, interoperability, and changes that
make coding easier in .NET. Examples are given in Visual Basic .NET to
show that it is still Visual Basic and that developer skills are upwardly
mobile into .NET
Building ASP .NET-based Applications
Introduces Microsoft ASP .NET and Web forms and shows how to create and build the initial part of the Web-based application. The module also shows what user controls are and provides a demo of how they are built
Using Data Access in .NET Applications
Learn what Microsoft ADO .NET is and how it works in this module. There will be implicit comparisons to Microsoft ActiveX® Data Objects (ADO), and developers will learn how to accomplish the same tasks they did in ADO with ADO .NET
Object Oriented Concepts in .NET
With this module, developers learn how to create middle tier components to use in their applications. The module also demonstrates a common data layer component that can be used in any application. Developers will learn how to create a business layer component that uses the data component. They also learn how to use the rapid application development (RAD) server features to create data parts of middle tier and layer component in business logic.
Creating Microsoft Windows-based Applications
Learn how to create Microsoft Windows®-based applications in this module. The Windows-based applications rely on Windows forms and are connected to the database used in other parts of the sample application
An Overview of Using XML in .NET
Extensible Markup Language (XML) designer features, XML, and ADO .NET-data access, and XML in remoting and System.XML
Creating XML Web Services
This module shows what XML Web services are and how to create and consume them. It also addresses how Web services integrate with Universal Descriptions, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI).
Code Instrumentation & Middle Tier Technologies
Explains how to use server RAD features and incorporate those into applications. This module also shows how .NET Framework provides these features and makes it easy to add them to applications with little or no coding
Security in .NET
With this module, developers are introduced to the new security features in .NET. The developers see practical examples of how those security features are woven into an application as it goes through the development process.
Lifecycle Tools in .NET
An overview of the lifecycle tools available in the Visual Studio .NET Enterprise editions. Learn about the Enterprise Templates, data modeling, software modeling, testing, and source control tools provided to enhance and improve the development experience of developers using the Enterprise Developer and Enterprise Architect versions of Visual Studio .NET
Configuring and Deploying .NET Applications
This module covers configuring and deploying options for a .NET application. Developers learn how to configure the application and learn about various ways of deploying it
Explains how to integrate legacy Component Object Model (COM) components into a .NET application and discusses interoperability with legacy applications
Migrating Applications to .NET
This module discusses how to migrate legacy applications to .NET. Topics include a strategy for selecting applications that are good candidates for migration, a discussion of the tasks, potential problems, and benefits of migrating existing applications to .NET
Building Applications for Mobile Devices (optional)
This module describes what mobile devices are and discusses what mobile standards are, such as Compact Flash (CF), Mobile Internet Toolkit (MIT), and Wireless Markup Language (WML). This module also shows how these standards are part of .NET.
