Visual Basic 2005 adds new features to Visual Basic (VB) that make it a more powerful programming language than ever before. This combined tutorial and reference describes VB 2005 from scratch, while also offering in-depth content for more advanced developers. Whether you're looking to learn the latest features of VB 2005 or you want a refresher of easily forgotten details, this book is an ideal resource.
Visual Studio 2005 Team System (VSTS) features a robust, integrated suite of test tools that work seamlessly in the Visual Studio development environment
Covering all phases of the development lifecycle, this book shows readers how to implement best practices for software testing using the appropriate components of VSTS
Readers will learn how to use the tools effectively, directly from those who helped design and develop the software
So you want to get a proper start in programming but don’t know quite where to begin? You couldn’t
have chosen a better tool to get you on the ground running than Microsoft’s new programming application,
Visual Basic 2005 Express Edition. Of course, you’ll now need to learn how to use it, maximizing
your education while minimizing the impact on your busy life.
First, Barker explains how to install Visual C# 2005 Express Edition, which is included on the accompanying CD-ROM, and walks you through programming basics. You'll then learn how to build user interface elements in order to develop applications using Windows Forms. And you'll find out how to use data in your applications as you examine database concepts, data controls, SQL Server Express Edition features, and ADO.NET
This book especially targets SQL Server Express (SSE), Visual Basic Express (VBE), and Visual Web
Developer Express (VWDE), all of which offer traditional fans of Microsoft technology an inexpen-
sive and easy route for adapting, learning, and growing professionally. As their names suggest, these
products are all compact versions of the full-blown products, and as such are easily downloaded
from the Microsoft website, allowing you to try them out without any major investment of time or
ASP (Active Server Pages) is a web development technology that's leapt through several
stages of evolution. It was first introduced as an easy way to add dynamic content to ordinary
web pages. Since then, it’s grown into something much more ambitious: a platformfor
creating advanced web applications, including e-commerce shops, data-driven portal sites,
and just about anything else you can find on the Internet.
ASP.NET 2.0 is the latest version of ASP, and it represents the most dramatic change yet.
Beginning Object-Oriented Programming with VB 2005 is a comprehensive resource of correct coding procedures. Author Daniel Clark takes you through all the stages of a programming project, including analysis, modeling, and development, all using object-oriented programming techniques and Visual Basic .NET.
Clark explores the structure of classes and their hierarchies, as well as inheritance and interfaces. He also introduces the .NET Framework and the Visual Studio integrated development environment, or IDE. A real-world case study walks you through the design of a solution.
This is a practical guide for developers working with the Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) using VB.NET. From introducing ODP.NET and programming with ODP.NET to application development using ODP.NET and on to discussing Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2005, this book covers the important aspects of ODP.NET. The book is written for professional .NET developers who need to work with and take full advantage of Oracle Database 10g using Visual Studio 2005. Developers are expected to be familiar with Visual Basic.NET 2005 and have minimum knowledge of Oracle SQL and PL/SQL....
When you write stored procedures, triggers, and user-defined functions, you need to
decide whether to use traditional Transact-SQL or a programming language that is
compatible with the .NET Framework, such as Visual Basic .NET or C#. Transact-
SQL is best for situations in which the code primarily performs data access with little
or no procedural logic. Programming languages that are compatible with the
.NET Framework are best-suited for computationally-intensive functions and
procedures that feature complex logic or for situations where you want to take
advantage of the .

Creating a Windows Forms Application So far you have used Visual Studio 2005 to create and run a basic Console application. The Visual Studio 2005 programming environment also contains everything you'll need to create graphical Windows applications.
Integration Services (SSIS), the next generation of the Extract, Transport, and Load (ETL) feature included with
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 has befuddled Database Administrators. This is due to the new programming paradigm
and the complexity of the development environment. SSIS includes many new capabilities bundled with a
Visual Studio front end. This paper explores the creation of sample development data featuring the use of the
most basic features in this new interface.
