The Visual Studio .NET Black Book covers the .NET architecture, libraries, and services, and how to use them from the programming languages supported by VS.NET. This unique book explores the .NET architecture in a non-language specific way. It covers the new Web and database access technologies in WebForms, WinForms, ADO.NET, and ASP.NET. It also includes an emphasis on XML, including the SOAP protocol, as it will be used extensively for passing data around components within distributed applications.
