I appears the samples for CLSA 4.0 Beta 1 are still based on the older version. I'm looking specifically at the ProjectTracker Library and the Authorization & Validation Rules. When will the samples be updated to the new manner of doing things?
I believe I updated ProjectTracker for Beta 1 - at least the C# code. I was using it to demo some of the MVC functionality.
I've been waiting a long time for an opportunity to implement the CSLA framework into an application and the opportunity has come knocking. Since I primaily work in VB.Net I'll have a lot of C# conversion work to do without a VB.net sample app to work off of. Is there any chance that the VB version will be upgraded to at least compile even if it doesn't take advantage of all the latest features? The application I will be working on is more of a suite consisting of a windows client data entry system, web access, reporting service, data processing services, etc. I could use the current version of the framework but with a project plan spanning the next 12-18 months I would rather implement the newest version right off the bat as I have plenty of time for the bugs to be worked out.
Yes, the VB samples will get updated as well. Not the VB framework though, just the samples.
The VB framework project was a community effort, and Sean Rhone (in particular) put in an amazing amount of work to build the VB 3.7 version. But in my mind that was a bridge effort, to give people relying on the VB framework time to come up with a strategy to move to the core framework. And of course it was a powerful learnng tool that went along with the Expert VB 2008 Business Objects book. With CSLA 4 I don't think there's any plan to carry the VB framework code forward.
But I absolutely intend to carry the primary VB samples forward. Perhaps not all of them will exist in both languages, as there are numerous conceptual samples that I'm not sure are worth porting. But ProjectTracker is one that will exist in both languages.
