Patterns and Practice Application Blocks now part of the Enterprise Library


Now may be I’m the only one to miss this but the
Application Blocks that were from the Patterns and Practices group are now all
rolled up in to the Enterprise Library.  Check out
http://msdn.microsoft.com/sql/default.aspx?pull=/library/en-us/dnpag2/html/entlib.asp

The application blocks that comprise the Enterprise
Library are the following:

  • Caching Application Block. This application block allows developers to incorporate a local cache
    in their applications.

  • Configuration Application Block. This application block allows applications to read and
    write configuration information.

  • Data Access Application Block. This application block allows developers to incorporate standard
    database functionality in their applications.

  • Cryptography Application Block. This application block allows developers to include
    encryption and hashing functionality in their applications.

  • Exception Handling Application Block. This application block allows developers and policy
    makers to create a consistent strategy for processing exceptions that occur
    throughout the architectural layers of enterprise applications.

  • Logging and Instrumentation Application
    Block
    . This application block allows
    developers to incorporate standard logging and instrumentation functionality
    in their applications.

  • Security Application Block. This application block allows developers to incorporate security
    functionality in their applications. Applications can use the application
    block in a variety of situations, such as authenticating and authorizing users
    against a database, retrieving role and profile information, and caching user
    profile information.
