The September 2007 issue of MSDN Magazine is now available online at http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/07/09/default.aspx.

In this issue you'll find a variety of different takes on current Web development technologies from Microsoft. We explain how the ScriptManager control unleashes ASP.NET AJAX in your Web apps, creating and integrating search providers into your site, and using a new IIS feature called the Windows Process Activation Service (WAS). Plus, Dino Esposito continues his coverage of ASP.NET AJAX.

You'll also find useful information about new networking features in the .NET Framework 3.5, and how to use mock component servers, or "test doubles," to simplify unit testing.

Plus, learn about COM and the CLR, lambda expressions in Visual Basic, customizing Visual Studio Team System, the Windows Workflow Foundation communication architecture, claims-based identity, .NET cryptography, and Windows Presentation Foundation at the British Library.

Don't forget to check out Toolbox for inside information on useful development tools.

As usual, the issue is available online in a bunch of languages: English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, and Japanese.

Enjoy!
