- Up to the minute with Visual Studio 2005, C# 2.0 and .NET 2.0.
- Updated and enhanced coverage of XML, ADO.NET, ASP.NET and Web services.
- Extensive use of Visual Studio 2005's new visual programming tools that
tremendously reduce the amount of code programmers need to write in ADO.NET
and ASP.NET applications. These tools enable programmers to develop powerful
ADO.NET and ASP.NET applications quickly and easily.
Major pedagogic enhancements:
- Strong coverage of topics for both computer science students and
- Early classes and objects approach. This was widely reviewed and carefully
developed under the guidance of a large team of distinguished academic and
- Integrated GradeBook case study. We use this case study throughout
Chapters 4-8 as part of our early classes and objects approach.
- Integrated ATM case study. Professionals will appreciate this 90+ page
case study that teaches object-oriented design (OOD) with the Unified
Modeling Language (UML) 2.0.
The complete, authoritative Deitel® Live-Code introduction to object-oriented programming with C# 2.0, Visual C#® 2005, ADO.NET 2.0, ASP.NET 2.0 and Web Services! C# is one of the world’s most powerful object-oriented languages. This new edition, which is completely updated to C# 2.0 and Visual C#® 2005, uses a carefully paced early classes and objects approach.
This book is a must have for any C# student because of its thorough explanations, its carefully developed and commented examples, and its numerous and interesting exercises. The idea of introducing a bit of UML in each chapter through a case study is great and should be in every book! It’s the book I’ll recommend to my students! —José Antonio González Seco, Andalucia’s Parlamient
I’m glad to see the early treatment of objects done so well. The UML material is well explained and will help students better understand OOP. A comprehensive introduction to XML, and one of the clearest tutorials on Web services I’ve read, with great examples. An excellent chapter on generics. Explains data structures with a clarity that is hard to come by. —Gavin Osborne, Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology
Overall fantasic coverage of inheritance.—Dharmesh Chauhan, Microsoft
The [optional] ATM OOD/UML case study is excellent! The implementation of the design developed in the early chapters gives the reader a fantastic model of a real world problem. You hit a home run with this one! —Catherine Wyman, Devry-Phoenix
Deitel has a real knack for presenting technical material with accuracy, clarity and brevity. —Harlan Brewer, University of Cincinnati
Excellent coverage of developing ASP.NET 2.0 applications, with plenty of sample code. The chapter on exception handling is one of, if not the best such chapters I have seen in the 50+ .NET related books I’ve read and reviewed. The chapter on Networking is one of the best I have seen. —Peter Bromberg, Merrill Lynch, C# MVP
A beautiful presentation of threads —Pavel Tsekov, Caesar BSC
A superb job of clearly integrating the theory of relational databases and SQL with the application of ADO.NET.—Harlan Brewer, University of Cincinnati
Visual C# 2005 How to Program, 2/e, includes comprehensive coverage of object-oriented programming in C#, and several major integrated case studies: the Grade Book class (Chapters 4—6, 8), the Time class (three sections of Chapter 9), the Employee class (Chapters 10—11), the optional OOD/UML™ 2 ATM system (Chapters 1, 3—9 and Appendix J), and three multi-tier, database driven Web applications–a guest book (Chapter 21), a secure book database (Chapter 21) and an airline reservation system (Chapter 22).
