C# 3.0 Design Patterns

by Judith Bishop

This resource for programmers provides an introduction to the classic object-oriented design patterns, and explains how to use the latest features of C#3.0 to code them. The book draws on new C# 3.0 language and .NET framework features to implement 23 core programming design patterns that were originally proposed in Gamma, Helm, Johnson, and Vlisside's Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software (1994). Discussion of each pattern touches on role, design, implementation, and real-world use, with examples and exercises. Special features of the book include pictorial representations of patterns, quizzes that relate the illustrations to UML diagrams, tables on choosing specific patterns, and comparison tables for patterns that are similar. C# 3. 0 features are introduced by example and summarized in sidebars for easy reference. B&W screenshots are included. The book is for programmers who are familiar with C#1.0 or Java 1.4. Although not written as a textbook, the book could be used in a mid-degree course on design patterns or advanced programming. Bishop is a computer scientist.

C-47/R4D Skytrain Units of the Pacific and CBI

by Chris Davey David Isby

C-47 is an aircraft that remains a popular favourite and an acknowledged classic design, carrying out missions every bit as strategically important and as dramatic for the aircrew as those of the fighters and bombers. The C-47's wartime operations paved the way for post-war military air transport. It also demonstrated how the USAAF was able to invest in and carry out a mission that it had not devoted much time to preparing for in terms of pre-war doctrine (in contrast to strategic bombing). In addition to linking theatres (by flying across 'the Hump'), it showed how vital it was to operations within a theatre like New Guinea. Even if massed airborne invasions were not carried out in the PTO/CBI, all air arms need transports like the C-47.

C# for Java Developers

by Adam Freeman Allen Jones

This title shows developers how to build Internet-based, distributed applications using Microsoft® .NET Remoting, which enables powerful remote interaction among objects. A fundamental understanding of .NET Remoting is crucial as developers shift to developing distributed, Internet-based applications. Until recently, DCOM was the preferred method for developing distributed applications on Microsoft platforms. But as this book demonstrates, the .NET Remoting architecture is much easier to use and extend than DCOM. The book covers all aspects of .NET Remoting, including in-depth coverage of the .NET Remoting architecture plus concrete examples, best practices, and performance tips to show how to extend and customize the framework. Provides developers with deep design and implementation guidance to help them build better distributed applications on the Microsoft .NET Framework One third of the book introduces readers to the basics of using .NET Remoting to develop distributed application Two-thirds of the book covers advanced features of .NET Remoting plus details on how to extend and customize the Although Java and C# share many similarities, there are fundamental differences between them. What's more, C#--the language designed from the ground up for programming the Microsoft .NET Framework--offers a wealth of new features that enable programmers to tap the full power of.NET. This is the ideal guide to help any Java developer master .NET programming with C#. The authors--two Java and C# experts--reveal the similarities and differences between the two platforms these languages support. Then they show you how to leverage your Java experience to get up to speed in C# development with a minimum of difficulty. It's the definitive programming resource as you tackle the .NET class libraries and learn to write applications for .NET with C#. Topics covered include: OVERVIEW Introduction to Microsoft .NET Comparing Java and .NET technologies THE C# LANGUAGE Creating assemblies Language syntax and features Data types Advanced language features PROGRAMMING .NET WITH C# Strings and regular expressions Numbers and dates Collections Streams, files, and I/O XML processing ADVANCED TOPICS Reflection Threading and synchronization Networking Remoting Database connectivity Security and cryptography Graphics and UI Introduction to XML Web services PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK FROM THE MICROSOFT VISUAL C#® .NET TEAM: "The two tech veterans who wrote this book can help you master C# quickly. They do an admirable job of describing the basics of the .NET initiative: its goals, structure, and capabilities. Then they help you leap the biggest hurdle of all--understanding the structure and purpose of the .NET class libraries. Their book presents the underlying concepts, explains the challenges you'll face, and guides you past the pitfalls with ease." --Prashant Sridharan, Product Manager, Microsoft Visual C# .NET team

C# Graphics Programming

by Rod Stephens

This Wrox Blox teaches you how to add graphics to C# 2008 applications, explaining fundamental graphics techniques such as: drawing shapes with different colors and line styles; filling areas with colors, gradients, and patterns; drawing text that is properly aligned, sized, and clipped exactly where you want it; manipulating images and saving results in bitmap, JPEG, and other types of files. Also covered are instructions for how to greatly increase your graphics capabilities using transformations. Transformations allow you to move, stretch, or rotate graphics. They also let you work in coordinate systems that make sense for your application. You will also learn how to use all of these techniques in printouts. The author describes the sequence of events that produce a printout and shows how to generate and preview printouts.The final sections describe two powerful new graphic tools that were introduced with .NET Framework 3.0: WPF graphics and FlowDocuments. WPF applications can use XAML graphic commands to declaratively draw and fill the same kinds of shapes that a program can draw by using graphics objects.Finally, a discussion on the FlowDocument object shows you how to define items that should be flowed across multiple pages as space permits. This lets you display text, graphics, controls, and other items that automatically flow across page breaks. FlowDocument viewers make displaying these documents easy for you, and simplifies the user's reading of the documents.This Wrox Blox also contains 35 example programs written in C# 2008, although most of the code works in previous versions of C# as well. The most notable exceptions are WPF graphics and FlowDocuments, both of which require WPF provided in .NET Framework 3.0 and later.
