Visual Basic 2005 Jumpstart

Download ebook

Okay, all you VB6 developers--time's up. As of March 2005, Microsoft no
longer supports this version of Visual Basic. And you can't blame them.
Three years ago, they introduced the .NET Framework--an elegant,
powerful platform--along with the new component-based VB.NET language.
But roughly five million of you decided to stick with VB6, mostly to
maintain legacy Windows and COM projects. Now, with the upcoming
release of VB 2005, Microsoft has several attractive reasons to upgrade
that you'll find hard to resist, including the return of some VB6
features. And we have the perfect book to help you make the conversion:
Visual Basic 2005 Jumpstart. Now, you can test-drive the beta version
of VB 2005 with three hands-on projects that enable you to learn the
syntax of this new language quickly. VB 2005 not only lets you convert
the bulk of your existing VB6 code, but offers several familiar
features, such as compile-and-run debugging, new MyClasses that
simplify use of .NET libraries and frameworks, lots of IDE support for
Windows, web and mobile GUI development, and data access controls that
closely resemble what you use now. The real plus is that you'll be
using these features with the .NET platform, which is more secure, less
complex than COM, and offers OneClick deployment. Visual Basic 2005
Jumpstart lets you get the feel of this platform for building
smart/rich Windows Forms clients, ASP.NET web applications, and web
services. Author Wei-Meng Lee, a Microsoft .NET MVP, veteran O'Reilly
author and frequent contributor to the O'Reilly Network, has put
together three useful test-drive projects, complete with code samples,
that let you develop: A personal library Windows application A
Web-based shopping cart application A stock enquiry Web Service Our
jumpstart guide is the quick, painless way to migrate from VB6 to VB
2005, and the perfect training manual for moving your organization to
the more robust, dynamic and secure world of .NET.
