Books On VB.NET 2005

P: n/a
Hello all,

Since we are converting from a language called Clarion to VB.NET 2005 what
are some books one would recommend with the following technologies in mind:

1. Data access and manipulation (MS-SQL Server)
2. TCP and UDP communications
3. COM/Serial communications (persistent, dial up, FTP)
4. USB communications
5. Imaging (Capture and Manipulation)
6. Mapping Integration (non-internet based)
7. Distributed processing and data sharing (cross company data sharing such
as Web Services, print and job spooling)

Also what are some add-on tools / .NET components that you find useful in
this area? IE: Code Generators, CASE Management tools, etc. We are looking
to create an n-tiered system with two front ends (Win and Web Form based).

Any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated.

Take care,

Ben Kim

Does this mean there are hardly any 2005 books available?

Personally i would start with the core reference

it is just availlable for a few days ( my copy is shipped 3 days ago to
me )

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/073...Fencoding=UTF8

it might not cover all your specific needs but it is sure a good start

:-)

I agree... The Core Reference is the place to start. Then you can move on to
the more specific references
(ADO.NET, ASP.NET, Distributed Applications (nTier))

Also, if you know another (more common) language (VB.Classic? C/C++? Java?)
there might be books that are specifically written for the "migrators" to
..NET in mind. Not sure about Clarion. Clarion is one of those ofshoot
specialized like language platforms that intimiately mix
language-and-framework (like PowerBuilder, Ruby or ROR, etc) that sorta go
against (in some ways) the freewheeling world of (C/C++, Java, C#, even VB).
I'm no expert though.
