About this book


Do you want to create .NET applications that provide high performance and scalability? Do you want to employ object–oriented programming techniques in a distributed environment? Do you want to maximize the reuse and maintainability of your code? Then this book is for you.

In Rockford Lhotka's Expert VB 2008 Business Objects, you'll learn how to use advanced .NET Framework capabilities alongside object-oriented design and programming to create scalable, maintainable object–oriented applications. Better still, this book includes Component-based Scalable Logical Architecture (CSLA) .NET 3.6, a widely-used framework on which you can base your application development. By using the concepts and framework in the book, you can focus more on your business issues, and less on technology.

Having updated this third edition using Visual Studio 2008 and Visual Basic 2008, Rockford Lhotka shows you how CSLA .NET 3.6 allows great flexibility in object persistence, so business objects can use virtually any data sources available. The CSLA framework supports 1–, 2–, and n–tier models through the concept of mobile objects. This provides the flexibility to optimize performance, scalability, security, and fault tolerance with no changes to code in the user interface or business objects.

Business objects based on CSLA .NET 3.6 automatically gain many advanced features that simplify the creation of Windows forms, web forms, WPF, WCF, WF and Web Services interfaces, and LINQ.
