C#?
Assuming C# is intended to compete with Java, I wonder why Microsoft didn't just focus on VB. Now that VB has implementation inheritance it is a viable option for OOP.

Hungarian notation in code has always presented a readability issue. Yes, Microsoft was very gung-ho about Hungarian notation back in the era preceeding object oriented programming, but the change of heart really has to do more with standard practices of object oriented programming, rather than readability., , , In C#, as with all current OO languages, the use of global variables is almost non-existent. Instead, you're dealing with objects that...

Attributes
Am I to understand correctly that Attributes can omit the word Attribute when they are referenced? I.E. Although WebMethod is used all the time the correct name of the class really is WebMethodAttribute? This seems a little useless.

Dropping the 'Attribute' part of the is just a convention that is commonly practiced.  You can use the full class name WebMethodAttribute as well without any trouble. If the class name minus the 'Attribute' substring is some sort of keyword or reserved word or something like that, you'll of course have to use the full name in that case.

Code decides on what class/component to use
I am developing an application in C#. A feature I want to insert is to have the code choose what objects to use., , The following scenario should make the question more clearer:, Lets say I was developing a kiosk application for software retailers that would allow instore shoppers to browse and find products faster. We will assume this application will be a boxed package. Since its a prepackaged program, it has to be set up with no customization to the program itself. There will be only one release. (I understand that with the new model of distributed programming, this wouldn't be appropriate, but just to get the point across, lets take everything as face value)., , The point is, the software can't be customized by me every time a new client makes a purchase., , The retail industry is diverse in data storage models.

so let me see if I understand. You front end application wont change from client to client but you intend for it to persist or read from their existing datastore? If this is the case you will need to write a mapping program for the client to use. Ideally this app would take the connection information from them. You would have them specify the db name, the db type and user information. The app would them retrieve the schema from the db. Then the u...

Delphi Programmers Take Heart
The father of Turbo Pascal and Delphi, Anders Hejlsberg, is also the architect of Microsoft's new language C#. The similarities of C# to Delphi are just uncanny. While COM was always a chore in C++ and unbelievably limiting in VB, Delphi really put MS to shame with its built-in language support for interfaces and rich hierarchy of classes you could descend from to create any type of COM object you wanted., , Delphi has always been the answer to the question, "how to I get the power of C++ with the ease of VB?" Now C# also falls into this category. This probably will make staunch Delphi supporters critical of C#, offering the "only now are they catching up" attitude. However, Delphi has long been a difficult sell to uneducated managers. While it would seem noble to "not give up the fight" and constantly strive to use Delphi wherever possible, this strategy can be be very limiting. Tools are tools. Its the ingenuity of people that make a project work. Delphi is a wonderful tool, yes. How...

Visual Studio .NET Introduction
Visual Studio .NET includes exciting features, some of which are enhancements to previous versions and some of which are brand new. A few of the most significant additions are the new Microsoft programming language called C#; a new, smarter integrated development environment; new object-oriented features in Visual Basic .NET; and development lifecycle tools., This article provides an overview of these features, as well as a look at Web Services, Web Forms, and new versions of ADO and ASP. It takes a first look at dozens of important new Visual Studio features that aid in the design, development, testing, and deployment of solutions built with Visual Basic, C++, Visual FoxPro, and C#., , [URL=http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/0900/VSNET/VSNET.asp]Click Here for the Full Article[/URL], , , ------------------, David Prothero, Owner / Consultant, [URL=http://www.prothero.com]Prothero Consulting[/URL], (209) 956-9180

Common Language Runtime (CLR)
The Common Language Runtime (CLR) is part of the Microsoft .NET initiative. CLR provides the common foundation necessary for language interoperability. Through CLR any development tool can be made .NET compatible. This is the really cool part of .NET that will "require" Visual Studio .NET. The other really neat features of .NET are open standard features and are implemented just as well or perhaps even better on other tools (like Borland Delphi)., , For Delphi to fully support .NET Borland will need to implement CLR compatible compiler. Once done, then you could write CLR applications with CLR-capable Delphi. This would include all target platforms including Windows CE / PocketPC applications., , [URL=http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpguidnf/html/cpconcross-languageinteroperability.asp]Click here[/URL] to read an article on this subject from the Microsoft web site.

C# Introduction and Overview
For the past two decades, C and C++ have been the most widely used languages for developing commercial and business software. While both languages provide the programmer with a tremendous amount of fine-grained control, this flexibility comes at a cost to productivity. Compared with a language such as Microsoft« Visual Basic«, equivalent C and C++ applications often take longer to develop. Due to the complexity and long cycle times associated with these languages, many C and C++ programmers have been searching for a language offering better balance between power and productivity., , There are languages today that raise productivity by sacrificing the flexibility that C and C++ programmers often require. Such solutions constrain the developer too much (for example, by omitting a mechanism for low-level code control) and provide least-common-denominator capabilities. They don't easily interoperate with preexisting systems, and they don't always mesh well with current Web programming prac...
