Is anyone using .NET 3.0?

P: n/a
jm
It is production, so I wondered why more people aren't using it. Is
there any advantage to 2.0 developers to use 3.0?

..net 3.0 is just the work flow components added to 2.0. while you can
host a wf component in an asp.net application, deciding how manage its
event model with disconnected browsers will be a fun. if you need a
workflow rules engine look at 3.0.

note: 3.0 is not the new version of the clr with the new compilers, linq
and llamda functions.

None of any appreciable benefit to ASP.NET...

Maybe I don't get what .Net 3.0 make available for web developers.
Can you explain a bit what .Net 3.0 offers for web developers ?

..Net 3.0 probably would have been better called.

..Net 2.1 or 2.x or something. Because its not teh same jump as 1.0 to 1.1
or 1.1 to 2.0.

The WFC are one of the biggest "add ins".

I believe:

There are four components. Windows Presentation Foundation is neat,
but is for desktop apps. Windows Communication Foundation seems like
Biztalk. Windows Workflow Foundation - looks like a good idea but I
don't even know if it's for asp or desktop, maybe both?

Cardspace is the fourth part and is sort of a single place to register
your identity so websites can authenticate you with a token instead of
all the logon stuff. I don't know how that works either but doesn't
appear to be proprietary to MS.

It isn't like it extended the languages or anything. More in the way
of new project types.

Not even that, given that it introduces zilch for web applications.

It should have been named something else, not .Net-something.
Maybe Windows FX, or something similar.

re:

Which does zilch for web applications.

what about xaml and all that "stuff." Doesn't that affect designing at
least the presentation layer of asp.net applications? I'm asking
because I have a projects that I thought might be ideal to start
learning 3.0 with. They're small, but useful, but if 3.0 isn't linq
and all the other items I keep reading about, then perhaps I should
wait. I'd like to use xaml and the "flash killer," but I'm not sure
it's all ready for prime time.

If you want to investigate the next "true" version of the .NET Framework and
Visual Studio.NET, then you need to download Orcas from Microsoft:

It's besides the point, but they shouldn't have renamed it then, IMHO.
It's confusing. They should have just released new components for 2.0.

re:

Anything that is created or implemented in XAML can be expressed
using a more traditional .net language, such as C# or Visual Basic .NET.

Maybe this site can clear up some of the doubts about xaml:

Hi,
I believe:

There are four components. Windows Presentation Foundation is neat,
but is for desktop apps.
<snip>

Don't forget XBAPs. They are interesting because they are somewhere in
between web applications and desktop applications. It's not really a RIA
either, since it's hosted in IE and deployed dynamically. I find XBAPs a
very interesting concept, actually, and they may be of interest for web
developers too.

HTH,
Laurent

While none of these technologies apply to each and every web app, in general
all of the .NET 3.0 frameworks are relevant for web development: WF can be
used to orchestrate your page flow (see the Web Client Software Factory for
an implementation) or business logic. WCF can be used to access or provide
remote or local services for distributed applications or integration scenarios.
CardSpace is the Windows solution to manage digital identities for web applications.
And WPF(/E) adds new capabilities to your user experience toolbox.

Also note that WCF is way more powerful than ASP.NET Web Services.

I agree on CardSpace, but reserve my judgment regarding
the usability on the web of the other .Net 3.0 technologies.

Sure, neither WF nor WCF affect ASP.NET UI development, but once we talk
about implementing or reusing existing business logic (that probably already
runs on some other server), it starts to get interesting.

I actually saw the first course several months ago, which is why I
wrote my original post. I wondered why more folks were doing THAT
(like the video in the class.)
