Microsoft patterns & practices is excited to announce the release of:
Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight v2.0 (PRISM)
The Composite Client Application Guidance is designed to help you more easily build modular Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight client line of business applications.
These types of applications typically feature multiple screens, rich, flexible user interaction and data visualization, and role-determined behavior. They are built to last and built for change. This means that the application's expected lifetime is measured in years and that it will change in response to new, unforeseen requirements. This application may start small and over time evolve into a composite client—composite applications use loosely coupled, independently evolvable pieces that work together in the overall application.
Included in this release:
· Composite Application Library
· Reference Implementation (Stock Traders application in WPF and Silverlight)
· Quick starts (9)
· How-Tos (26) and
· Lots of documentation for everything you want to know about UI patterns and client architectures
