"Application architecture is an essential skill for ASP.NET developers. It is always tempting to jump in and start coding, but planning your architecture early in the project will leave you with a solid application that scales well, is easy to modify and extend, and saves you time and effort later on. As businesses struggle to control their costs, writing solid code that can be extended easily is becoming even more important.
This book takes a pragmatic approach to Application Architecture in ASP.NET 3.5. It presents a series of common architectural models, and shows how to select the best ones for your project and apply them.
The book begins by showing you how to use the main architectural models in your applications. You will see how to implement n-tier architectures, MVC, design patterns, and more. But this is no software engineering theory book it is a practical, hands-on guide that shows you how to use these techniques in your software straight away. We then go on to build SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) applications with the Windows Communication Framework (WCF). Finally the book contains some essential guidance on effective database design, and a chapter on localizing your applications.
This book is a great way to learn ASP.NET Architecture in a practical, hands-on way. It will also serve as a quick reference for improving your application design.
What you will learn from this bookExplore different architectural options while creating web solutions tiers, layers, and logical structuring
Master the concept of n-tier architecture and used design patterns in ASP.NET

Implement the new ASP.NET MVC design in your applications

Build an SOA application and see how WCF compliments it

Design scalable and maintainable applications

Deploy your localized applications and learn the best practices for your localization framework

Learn better database design that can go with your application

Explore best practices on how to globalize your commercial web applicationsApproach
This is a practical hands-on book with clear instructions and lot of code examples. It takes a simple approach, guiding you through different architectural topics using realistic sample projects.
A single project is implemented using different architectural styles to make the reader understand the details of each style. There are also many small independent code samples to explain design patterns, WCF, and localization.
Who this book is written for
This book is for people familiar with the ASP.NET framework using either C# or VB.NET. You don t need to be an ASP.NET guru the book is ideal for novice and intermediate developers.
If reading about application architecture usually confuses you or sends you to sleep, then this book will be perfect for you! In short, any ASP.NET programmer who is confused or disoriented reading different books or materials on architectures wondering how and what to implement in their application, will definitely benefit from this book!
