By Mario Hewardt

“Mario Hewardt’s Advanced .NET Debugging is an exceptional source for either newbie and skilled builders operating with .NET. The e-book is usually filled with many debugging suggestions and discussions of CLR internals, as a way to gain builders architecting software.”

–Jeffrey Richter, advisor, coach, and writer at Wintellect


“Mario has performed it back. His Advanced home windows Debugging (coauthored with Daniel Pravat) is a useful source for local code debugging, and Advanced .NET Debugging achieves an analogous caliber, readability, and breadth to make it simply as necessary for .NET debugging.”

–Mark Russinovich, Technical Fellow, Microsoft Corporation

The basically whole, sensible consultant to solving the hardest .NET Bugs


Advanced .NET Debugging is the 1st centred, pragmatic consultant to monitoring down today’s most complicated and not easy .NET software insects. it's the in simple terms publication to concentration solely on utilizing robust local debugging instruments, together with WinDBG, NTSD, and CDB, to debug .NET purposes. utilizing those instruments, writer Mario Hewardt explains easy methods to establish the true root reasons of problems—far extra quick than you ever may with different debuggers.


Hewardt first introduces the main ideas had to effectively use .NET’s local debuggers. subsequent, he turns to stylish debugging concepts, utilizing real-world examples that exhibit many universal C# programming errors.


This publication allows you to

  • Make sensible use of postmortem debugging, together with PowerDBG and different “power tools”
  • Understand the debugging information and implications of the recent .NET CLR 4.0
  • Master and effectively use Debugging instruments for home windows, in addition to SOS, SOSEX, CLR Profiler, and different strong tools
  • Gain a deeper, simpler realizing of CLR internals, akin to reading thread-specific facts, controlled heap and rubbish collector, interoperability layer, and .NET exceptions
  • Solve tricky synchronization difficulties, controlled heap difficulties, interoperability difficulties, and masses more

Professional DotNetNuke Module Programming

Sure, there's a few scope for development right here. however it is ridiculous to criticize the writer for no longer making the ebook longer. My cabinets are groaning less than the burden of big laptop books, bloated with details that's available in different places.

Instead of padding out his ebook, Mitchel tells you the place to get the data you need.

What Mitchel does provide, that i have not visible anyplace else (except his site), is an entire remedy of the internet program tasks (WAP) path to module improvement. WAP vs WSP is a type of silly non secular wars.

What Mitchel does not say (but most likely may still) is that the choice website tasks (WSP)route would possibly not get you the place you must cross. He simply observes that "there are how you can create compiled assemblies from WSP initiatives yet they're very advanced to complete". yet, when you have a posh module or suite of modules, you could easily be not able to assemble them as a WSP. i've got learnt that the demanding way.

His e-book is not only the simplest therapy of WAP improvement in DotNetNuke, however the just one. For that on my own it really is well worth the dollars.

It was developed by Steve Johnson and is available as a free download. SOSEX, not surprisingly, stands for SOS Extended. SOSEX adds a set of powerful debugging commands to your arsenal. Examples of such commands include deadlock detection, generational garbage collection commands, and more powerful breakpoint commands.

Rather, it takes a one-time hit of translating a chunk of intermediate code into machine code and then reuses the translated machine code in all subsequent invocations. Using a virtual execution 23 High-Level Overview 25 applications. NET framework can be considered a superset of the BCL and includes frameworks such as the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF), Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), and much more. NET framework but not the BCL are considered outside of the standards realm, and any applications that make use of them may or may not work on other CLI implementations besides the CLR.

NET applications. Summary If history has taught us anything, it is that software is, without a doubt, gaining in complexity. To make life easier for developers, this complexity is partially mitigated by the introduction of new abstraction layers, unifying the underlying low-level mechanics through a consistent framework and associated runtime. NET is a great example of an abstraction that provides tremendous benefits to developers. NET touts this simplicity, you must not forget that the fundamental building blocks should still be understood.
