Explore advanced .NET APIs and create a basic .NET core library with dynamic code generation and metadata inspection to be used by other libraries or client applications. This book starts with the benefits of .NET including its fundamental tasks and tools where you will learn .NET SDK tools and the ILDasm tool. This is followed by a detailed discussion on code generation in .NET API programming. Along the way, you will learn how to build a programming model through a code-generator tool and metadata inspector tool using .NET version information for .NET assembly and binary code. Exploring the .NET Core 3.0 Runtime covers the features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 using a tutorial and shows you how to create a .NET Core 3.0 application. Here you will configure and deploy your .NET projects along with meta packages and see some do´s and don´ts. Finally, you will compare the features of .NET Core 3.0 with the .NET Framework library and its GUI frameworks. After reading this book, you will be able to work in a .NET 3.0 environment and program for its two advanced features: code generation and metadata inspection. What You Will Learn Understand the inner workings of an assembly´s structural organization Work with reflection through the .NET Core platform Carry out dynamic code generation using the .NET Core API´s code document model (CodeDOM) Use the metadata mechanism of the .NET Core platform Who This Book Is For Software developers and engineers using .NET and/or the .NET Core platform and tools.
Migrate your existing microservice cluster from ASP .NET to ASP .NET Core. While improved performance and cross-platform support are evident, this book helps you cut through the noise to determine how, when, and to what extent a migration is needed. Microsoft´s introduction of .NET Core has created a lot of excitement, but also a lot of confusion for developers accustomed to ASP applications and services. This book gives you specific steps to embark on a partial or full SaaS microservices system migration, factoring in limited resources, time, and finances. In addition to practical advice and real-world examples, many mishaps will be shared, providing you with a complete 360-degree view of a migration. As a developer intimately familiar with the migration process, author Iris Classon shares prescriptive guidance on every part of the system-from code, dependencies, editors, integration, and the deployment pipeline to a distribution model. You will come away with all the information you need to plan and prepare your migration to ASP.NET Core. What You´ll Learn Conduct an in-depth, pre-migration analysis of your system Know the differences between ASP .NET and ASP .NET Core Plan for and execute a full or partial migration to ASP .NET Core Understand the continuous integration and deployment process Gain insight on tools and templates that will accelerate and facilitate the migration process Leverage a real-world migration example, complete with genuine challenges Migrate specific components such as logging, authentication, data access, and more Who This Book Is For Developers who are considering or are tasked with migrating an existing microservice cluster from ASP.NET to ASP.NET Core. Experience with C#, Web API, ASP.NET, Visual Studio, and PowerShell is helpful.
