patterns & practices: Enterprise Library: Home

Written on July 29, 2004

Abstract: "Enterprise Library is a major new release of the patterns & practices Application Blocks, which are reusable software components designed to assist developers with common enterprise development challenges. Enterprise Library 1.0 will include blocks for Data Access, Exception Handling, Caching, Configuration, Logging & Instrumentation, Security and Cryptography, in a single integrated download. The Library will feature improved consistency, extensibility, integration and ease of use, and will include a GUI-based configuration editing tool, generally eliminating the need to hand-edit XML configuration files for the blocks. This workspace provides a forum for the community to discuss Enterprise Library, review prerelease materials and provide suggestions for upcoming versions."patterns & practices: Enterprise Library: Home
