Do you need to build a big old WPF or Silverlight line-of-business application? Is it so big that you need to partition the work among several dev teams? Then you need Composite Application Guidance (CAG) for WPF.

The Patterns and Practices folks have rebuilt the popular CAB package into Composite Application Guidance for WPF, formerly known as "Prism".

Download Drop 3 of the CAG package from here. Visual Studio integration is in the house -- be sure to check out Max Knor's post on Using the VS Templates for Composite-WPF-Guidance.

The new drop includes:

  • The Project Linker tool installer
  • The Multi-Targeting QuickStart
  • The Multi-Targeting Visual Studio templates
  • The Modularity QuickStart (Static and Remote module-loading versions)
  • Composite Application Library for WPF
  • Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight Work-in-progress documentation
  • Initial port of Modularity namespace for Composite Application Library for Silverlight
  • Initial port of Composite.UnityExtensions for Silverlight
  • Added the Remote version of the Modularity QuickStart
  • Composite.UnityExtensions ported to Silverlight
  • Composite Application Guidance for WPF and Silverlight Work-in-progress documentation (CHM format)
