If you've ever wondered whether you might be able to use a web service to cache data—or whether it would be fast enough to be useful—wonder no more.
This last installment of a three-article series discusses how to apply centrally imposed Windows Group Policy settings using the Manageable Configuration Provider.
The second installment of this three-article series discusses how to set Windows Group Policy at both the machine and domain levels to control application configuration settings from a central location.
This three-article series shows how to create and use custom configuration sections in ASP.NET application configuration files, and how to set Windows Group Policy at both the machine and domain level to control configuration settings from a central location.
Using custom policy injection, you can configure and apply policies exactly the way you wantbut doing it right requires a little effort.
Learn how to use AOP injection techniques to add, remove, and modify logging, validation, caching, exception handling, authorization, and performance measurements in your ASP.NET applicationswithout having to recompile your code.
Find out how to use Factory, Builder, and Injection Patterns in ASP.NET to construct different representations of complex objects.
If any part of your ASP.NET applications display pages based on user interaction, browser type, security permissions, or other factors, you'll find these Controller patterns useful.
Most Design Pattern documentation targets desktop applications or discusses pattern theory, but in this series you'll find a discussion and examples of patterns specifically targeted at ASP.NET.
By adding configuration design support, you can make your custom providers look and feel just like the built-in providers, letting users select them and provide settings through the Configuration Console.
When the providers installed with Enterprise Library don't meet your needs, take advantage of the library's pluggable architecture and roll your own.
The Enterprise Library Application Blocks aren't useful only in Windows Forms applications; you can use them in ASP.NET too by downloading a set of patch files and configuring the security settings appropriately. Find out how.
The second half of this two-part article looks at ASP.NET 2.0's new SQL cache invalidation support, and shows you how to use the Caching API to speed up your ASP.NET applications.
This two-part article shows you how to take advantage of the many ways that you can boost the performance of ASP.NET applications by caching the data they use. Although some of the techniques apply to both ASP.NET 1.0 and 2.0, the new capabilities in ASP.NET 2.0 make caching even more attractive for busy Web sites.
When you need to write an application that allows users to select the database provider, the application code itself needs to be completely provider-independent. ADO.NET 2.0 helps you create and deliver database applications even when you don't know what database your clients are using.
