You’ve probably heard me talk about the forthcoming UIP Application Block. You can expect to see a number of new Application Blocks arrive this year, of which UIP, Updater and Configuration have specific interest for me. Three others were released today:
Service Aggregation Block
The Aggregation Application Block is a .NET Framework extension that allows you to easily manage and coalesce information from various service providers and other systems and present that information to users.
Asynchronous Invocation Application Block
The Microsoft Asynchronous Invocation Application Block manages asynchronous communication between a Web client and one or more foreign service providers (FSP).
Caching Application Block
The Caching Application Block has been designed to encapsulate Microsoft’s recommended best practices for caching in .NET applications
I haven’t played with any of these yet, so I can’t say good or bad things about them. I’ve been beta testing the UIP block, though and I’ll have a lot more to say about that soon.
