Developing Desktop Applications
This chapter dives into the world of building enterprise desktop applications using the .NET Framework. Building desktop applications is quite different from building Web applications, but the implementation of both is nearly identical within the Visual Studio .NET environment. This chapter begins by answering the question “When should I build a desktop application?” The chapter then presents a classical application design pattern that is formulated into a structured application framework to enable you to quickly build a scalable enterprise application. Next, the chapter shows examples that implement data binding and extend application usability. Finally, the chapter presents an approach to application internalization as well as a method for packaging system resources into a shared assembly.
