Article: Intro to .NET 3.0 for Architects

| by James Vastbinder on Jul 03, 2007. Estimated reading time: less than one minute |

Mohammad Akif introduces the concepts behind .NET 3.0 that architects need to understand.  With this latest release of the .NET Framework the Common Language Runtime itself did not change.  What did change was the inclusion of a large set of new libraries meant to reduce coding complexity and reduce the number of lines of code a developer would need to write. 

Akif begins with a little history behind .NET 3.0 and quickly jumps into the basics of the .NET 3.0 architecture.  Topics covered are 

  • Windows Communication Foundation
  • Windows Presentation Foundation
  • Workflow Foundation
  • Windows Card Spaces

To find other great .NET Framework content like Mohammad's article on InfoQ.com simply append the dotnet tag to the end of the base InfoQ URL.  To find content on WCF, simply append wcf to the end of the Infoq URL like thus, www.infoq.com/wcf.

.NET 3.5 and CLR 2.0 by Willian Leite

As they did with .net 3.0 and all its features, .net 3.5 (linq, etc) will be in CRL 2.0?

I thought that CLR 3.0 will have this.

Re: .NET 3.5 and CLR 2.0 by Jonathan Allen

.NET 3.5 has three components.

1. New compilers for C# and VB
2. New libaries that run on CLR 2.0.
3. A new version of Visual Studio that can build 2.0/3.0/3.5 applications.

Technically speaking, both .NET 3.0 and 3.5 applications 'run' on the 2.0 framework.

Actually, .net3.5 integrate .net framework2.0, WPF,WCF and WF into one framework.And did not like that vs2005 needs these extensions such as extension for WPF.
