C# for Java Developers (Pro-Developer)

C# for Java Developers (Pro-Developer) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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:

PRAISE FOR THIS BOOK FROM THE MICROSOFT VISUAL C#(R) .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

Book News Annotation:

This guide will help Java developers master .NET programming with C#. It reveals similarities and differences between the two platforms these languages support, and shows how to draw on knowledge of Java to get up to speed in C# development. After a brief overview of the .NET platform, the book explains the syntax and features of the C# language, discusses how to use C# and the .NET Framework to accomplish common programming tasks, and introduces advanced programming areas such as threading and networking. Jones has experience developing e- commerce and security systems with Java. Freeman has written several books on Java.

Synopsis:

This book provides Java developers with all the information they need to embrace Microsoft "RM" Visual C# "TM" .NET and develop for the Microsoft .NET Framework — all from two experienced authors with deep knowledge of Java and Microsoft development tools.<P>The similarities between C# and Java are immediate and obvious, but Java programmers need to overcome many challenges before they can get up to speed with C#. The expert authors of this title have written the perfect guide to help Java developers past pitfalls and learn to make use of all the power of the more advanced language with the Microsoft "RM" Visual C# "TM" .NET development system. The authors demonstrate the syntactical and architectural similarities between the two languages — and what's different in C# — to transform Java developers into proficient C# developers as quickly and painlessly as possible.
