Create rich, flexible, and maintainable line-of-business applications with the MVVM design pattern Simplify and improve business application development by applying the MVVM pattern to Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft(R) Silverlight(R) 4. With this hands-on guide, you'll use MVVM with data binding, commands, and behaviors to create user interfaces loosely coupled to business logic. MVVM is ideal for .NET developers working with WPF and Silverlight--whether or not you have experience building enterprise applications. Discover how to: Dive deep into MVVM--and learn how it differs from other UI design patterns Build a simple Customer Relationship Management application you can adapt for your own projects Implement MVVM to maintain separation between UI declarative syntax and presentation logic code Create a Domain Model to define your application's business context Write dynamic code for the data access layer with the Microsoft Entity Framework and NHibernate Enforce complex data-validation scenarios using Windows Workflow Foundation 4 Implement MVVM using frameworks and toolkits such as Microsoft Prism Get code samples on the web For system requirements, see the Introduction.

Your expert guide to designing and building dynamic user interfaces Sharpen your application design and development skills using XAML—the declarative markup language used in Microsoft Silverlight and Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF). Led by two XAML experts, you’ll learn practical ways to build rich, interactive user interfaces with data integration capabilities and support for multimedia, graphics, and animation. This hands-on guide is ideal for Microsoft .NET developers and web designers alike. Discover how to: Control UI behavior and implement business logic with code-behind solutions Manage UI element positioning with the XAML layout system Use templates to customize UI elements—without affecting their functionality Apply different types of property and event systems in WPF and Silverlight Bind various kinds of data to your UI, and display them in the format you want Implement 2D and 3D vector graphics and animations Reuse control styles and properties to maintain consistency throughout your application

Pro .NET Best Practices is a practical reference to the best practices that you can apply to your .NET projects today. You will learn standards, techniques, and conventions that are sharply focused, realistic and helpful for achieving results, steering clear of unproven, idealistic, and impractical recommendations. Pro .NET Best Practices covers a broad range of practices and principles that development experts agree are the right ways to develop software, which includes continuous integration, automated testing, automated deployment, and code analysis. Whether the solution is from a free and open source or a commercial offering, you will learn how to get a continuous integration server running and executing builds every time code changes. You will write clearer and more maintainable automated testing code that focuses on prevention and helping your .NET project succeed. By learning and following the .NET best practices in this book, you will avoid making the same mistakes once. With this book at your side, you'll get: Real-world, no-nonsense approaches to continuous integration, automated testing, automated deployment, and code analysis Tips and tricks you'll need to clear hurdles that keep others from putting these common sense ideas into common practice Guidance from the minimal, essential approach all the way to what's necessary to deliver at the highest levels of quality and effectiveness Benefit immediately, even before finishing it, from the knowledge, workable advice, and experience found in Pro .NET Best Practices.

This guide provides everything you need to get started with Prism and to use it to create flexible, maintainable Windows® Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Microsoft Silverlight® 4.0 applications. It can be challenging to design and build WPF or Silverlight client applications that are flexible, maintainable, and that can evolve over time based on changing requirements. These kinds of applications require a loosely coupled modular architecture that allows individual parts of the application to be independently developed and tested, allowing the application to be modified or extended later on. Additionally, the architecture should promote testability, code re-use, and flexibility. Prism helps you to design and build flexible and maintainable WPF and Silverlight applications by using design patterns that support important architectural design principles, such as separation of concerns and loose coupling. This guide helps you understand these design patterns and describes how you can use Prism to implement them in your WPF or Silverlight applications. This guide will show you how to use Prism to implement the Model-View-View-Model (MVVM) pattern in your application, and how to use it along with commands and interaction requests to encapsulate application logic and make it testable. It will show you how to split an application into separate functional modules that can communicate through loosely coupled events, and how to integrate those modules into the overall application. It will show you how to dynamically construct a flexible user interface by using regions, and how to implement rich navigation across a modular application. Prism allows you to use these design patterns together or in isolation, depending on your particular application requirements.

Lesbare, wartbare und zuverlässige Tests entwickelnStubs, Mock-Objekte und automatisierte FrameworksEinsatz von .NET-Tools inkl. NUnit, Rhino Mocks und Typemock Isolator Unit Testing, richtig durchgeführt, kann den Unterschied ausmachen zwischen einem fehlgeschlagenen Projekt und einem erfolgreichen, zwischen einer wartbaren Code-Basis und einer, die niemand freiwillig anpackt, zwischen dem Nach-Hause-Kommen um 2 Uhr nachts oder zum Abendessen, selbst noch kurz vor dem Release-Termin. Roy Osherove führt Sie Schritt für Schritt von einfachen Tests zu Tests, die wartbar, lesbar und zuverlässig sind. Er geht danach auf die Grundlagen des Interaction Testings ein und stellt schließlich bewährte Vorgehensweisen für das Schreiben, das Verwalten und das Warten der Unit Tests in echten Projekten vor. Darüber hinaus werden auch fortgeschrittene Themen behandelt wie Mocks, Stubs und Frameworks wie etwa Typemock Isolator und Rhino Mocks. Sie werden eine Menge zu fortgeschrittenen Testmustern und zur Testorganisation, zum Arbeiten mit Legacy Code und auch zu untestbarem Code erfahren. Und Sie lernen Werkzeuge kennen, die Sie beim Testen von Datenbanken und anderen Technologien brauchen werden. Alle Beispiele sind mit Visual Studio in C# geschrieben, so dass die Beispiele insbesondere für .NET-Entwickler nützlich sind. Aber auch für Programmierer anderer Sprachen wird das Buch von großem Nutzen sein, da die Prinzipien des Unit Testings für andere Sprachen dieselben sind. Roys Blog finden Sie auf ISerializable.com.

Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) ist ein Framework fur Benutzerschnittstellen in Applikationen, die unter Windows ausgefuhrt werden konnen. Dabei werden neue Benutzerschnittstellen eingefuhrt: Layouts, Bewegungen und 3D-Grafiken werden unterstutzt. Auerdem werden die Elemente der Benutzerschnittstelle durch eine XML-basierende Sprache definiert (XAML), so dass Entwickler und Designer ihre Arbeiten besser koordinieren konnen. Sowohl fur den Softwareentwickler als auch fur den Grafik-Designer bietet Windows Presentation Foundation neue Moglichkeiten in der Darstellung und der Funktionalitat. Dieses Buch gibt dem Softwareentwickler einen Einstieg in die Moglichkeiten von Windows Presentation Foundation und erlautert mit Hilfe vieler Beispiele sowohl die einfachen Grundelemente, wie auch komplexe Anwendungen, wie Animation und 3D-Darstellungen. Das Zusammenwirken von XAML und Programmcode wird ausfuhrlich erlautert. In weiteren Kapiteln werden die Themen Steuerelemente, Layout, Dialoge, Datenbindung, Vorlagen und Multimedia behandelt.
