And so it releases. This has been a great project and team to work with. I feel privileged to have been able to work with all the folks who made it possible, and to have made such a step forward implementing a close customer connection throughout the project.
So what is CAB? It's an application block that provides common infrastructure components and a programming model for smart client applications that are composed out of views and business logic that might come from different teams or need to evolve independently. It has been architected considering many a convergence of many patterns observed in large successful customer applications and whre the platform and tools are going in the future in this space.
This is a 'large' app block - you will probably want to do the hands-on-labs and see the webcasts to understand the key concepts in depth. But you can get going with little effort by looking at the quicktstarts and included how-to documentation.
When the time comes around, we'll be working on showing how WinFX technologies such as Windows Workflow and WPF (Avalon) can be used in CAB applications. As always, the goal of these p&p assets is to help you build your applications in that make the best use of the existing platform and sets you up for simplified adoption of the next generation.
I hope you enjoy it. To all the customers who participated in our expert advisory board, on-site visits, workshops, webcasts and gotDotNet community - THANK YOU.
