Book Description

28 Jun 2010 1590594525 978-1590594520
Three powerful technologies--Remoting, Reflection, and Threading--are combined in a single book! And when these technologies come together, you are faced with a powerful range of tools that allow you to run code faster, more securely, and more flexibly. (And performance gains are critical in todays industry!) So you'll be able to code applications across the spectrum--from a single machine to an entire network. This book begins by discussing the most fundamental of the three techniques: .NET Remoting in Visual Basic .NET, which allows you to customize your application communication processes. The next portion of the book covers reflection, which allows you to examine code at run time, regardless of prior knowledge of its structure. Finally, the book explores threading, which helps break up your application into multiple, independent threads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, misleading title 20 Oct 2005
The book is excellent and covers the material well. I was having some problems with an architecture that involved both remoting and reflection and it helped me to solve them.
The Major issue i have with this book is that it calls itself 'Pro .NET' when it is in fact a pure VB Title. While i accept that most c# / c++ developers can read VB code, it could to do more to include the whole .Net community and not just the VB developers. Having VB used in all the examples makes the code samples much less readable than they could otherwise have been.
Compared to the quality of the explanations of the subject matter, that is a minor gripe, however annoying and this book will probably become part of my armoury until an equivalent v2.0 title is released.

4.0 out of 5 stars explains difficult concepts quite well 27 Aug 2008
By Techie Evan - Published on Amazon.com
this is actually a well-written book that explains difficult concepts quite well, and despite being authored by many different people, the book reads cohesively. the lack of downloadable source code was not a big problem for me because the code samples are short and straight to the point. some readers, however, may not like the fact that all code samples are in visual basic only.

2.0 out of 5 stars NO SOURCE CODE 16 Dec 2005
By Kelin - Published on Amazon.com
The author seems to know a lot about remoting(the only part I have read so far) and the theory sounds great, but when you type in the code, a lot of time it doesn't work (especially on multiple machines). Apress has a lot of books like that. This book itself is not bad; however, if there's no code that's runnable, you tend to think: Does he really preach what he practiced? I would really like to see publisher go this extra miles to provide workable code for this type of books.

1.0 out of 5 stars Its a pity that there is no sample source code to be downloaded ! 17 Nov 2005
By jasper - Published on Amazon.com
I've bought it for several weeks, it's a good book, but there is no source code for downloading ....

And I've contacted with APRESS customer service personel, but he said that it is due to the author not upload their source code to APRESS web site, I believe that "a good book must provid not only the content, but also the good using environment (ex: source code for downloading, or CD )"

I wish that APRESS or the authors can see the comment, and provid source code as soon as possible, not just provide "Table of Content", its too poor ...
