Pro Visual C++/CLI and the .NET 3.5 Platform is about writing .NET applications using C++/CLI. While readers are learning the ins and outs of .NET application development, they will also be learning the syntax of C++, both old and new to .NET. Readers will also gain a good understanding of the .NET architecture. This is truly a .NET book applying C++ as its development language—not another C++ syntax book that happens to cover .NET.

What you’ll learn
  • Learn the syntax and semantics of C++/CLI
  • Program Windows graphical user interface applications
  • Write web applications and web services in C++/CLI
  • Work with data in a database or XML documents
  • Create multi-threaded and network–aware applications
  • See how to use C++/CLI unmanaged code properly and safely

Very good book.
Well presented. Quite useful for people who were working in VC++6.0 and migrating stuff to .NET , like me. it gave me clues on how one can leverage the .NET framework classes while still retaining the code in the native VC6.0.
Thanks for presenting this to programmers !
