    Feature comparison: EWS vs. EWS Managed API


    Are you a .Net Developer who develop custom application using Exchange Web Services (EWS) Managed API or EWS (Auto-generated proxies)? Then this is for you. The EWS Managed API provides an intuitive interface for developing client applications that use EWS. The API enables unified access to Exchange resources, while using Outlook–compatible business logic. In short, you can use the EWS Managed API to access EWS in versions of Exchange starting with Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1), including Exchange Online. However, do you know that not all features that are available in EWS are implemented in the EWS Managed API?

    EWS vs EWS Managed API

    You can refer the above snapshot or related documentation identifies the EWS Managed API feature implementations that target different versions of Exchange. If the EWS Managed API does not implement a feature that you want to use, you might consider an auto-generated proxy object model.

    Download: .Net Universe 2013 Poster


    You can download the .Net Universe 2013 poster. This Poster showing the main .NET SDKs, libraries and packages classified by application type and package type (NuGet, official support, etc.).
    .Net Universe 2013 Poster
    This poster shows how the trends are changing in .NET as we´re moving from a single large .NET Framework to a more loosely coupled and autonomous libraries and sub-frameworks, many of them even published as NuGet packages and evolving continuously. The number of those libs and packages is evolving and growing, so having a visual photo of it can be helpful. The main idea of the poster is to show that you can create any kind of application with .NET, from the largest applications to the smaller apps: in the cloud, on the web, on desktops, tablets, phones, and in embedded environments (even watches!). Any of those application types is shown as category/bucket in the poster and within each bucket we´re tossing the main libraries/SDKs/packages out. Then we´re also showing cross-cutting concerns buckets like Security, Data Access, and .NET Extension libs. The main categories are the following: - Emerging application patterns (Mobile, Web & Cloud) - Established application patterns (Desktop and Embedded) - Cross-Cutting concerns Finally, the poster is putting a check/mark on every lib/SDK bullet depending if they are or not complaint with the following: - NuGet package - Open Source - Microsoft Official Supported You can print it out or use it as in electronic format (.PDF). Using the electronic format (.PDF) allows you to access each content URL/page related.
