Generative Programming: Modern Techniques to Automate Repetitive Programming Tasks

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Even when developers have recurring computer-readable metadata to process and a clear idea of how code should be structured, they can still find themselves in need of a technique to automatically generate the code to avoid the drudge work of repeatedly writing and tweaking it. Generative programming is a technique that addresses this problem. Using generative programming techniques, you can solve software engineering problems in families, rather than individually, saving time and coding effort. This article describes these techniques, and builds a sample template-driven code generator. The article also lists existing utilities that have been built with generative programming techniques, as well as actual code generators.

Windows Forms: A Modern-Day Programming Model for Writing GUI Applications


To write GUI applications for Microsoft .NET you'll use Windows Forms. Windows Forms are a new style of application built around classes in the .NET Framework class library's System.WinForms namespace. They have a programming model all their own that is cleaner, more robust, and more consistent than models based on the Win32 API or MFC, and they run in the managed environment of the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR). This article details what Windows Forms are all about, from the programming model to Microsoft Intermediate Language and the JIT compiler. Two applications using forms, event handlers, anchors and persistence are built step by step.

C# Object Oriented Programming

So far in C# Essentials we have looked at the basics of programming in C# such as variable types and flow control. Although it would be possible to write a functional program using these techniques, there is much more to becoming a proficient C# programmer. C# is, above all, an object oriented programming language and as such any C# programmer will be expected to create object-oriented applications using this language.

Object Oriented Programming

Four core concept of OOP Object Oriented Programming. 1.Inheritance, 2.Polymorphism, 3.Abstraction and 4.Encapsulation

Object-Oriented Programming Concepts

This is the first in a series of articles describing the use of object-oriented programming techniques as implemented by the C# programming language. This series follows the C# Fundamentals tutorial that beginners are advised to read first.
