` `What are the main features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition?


` `Language Integrated Query (LINQ)


` `One of the main features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition is Language Integrated Query (LINQ), which is a set of extensions to the .NET languages that enable you to query data from various sources using a common syntax. With LINQ, you can write queries that work with data from:



  • Relational databases (LINQ to SQL)



  • XML documents (LINQ to XML)



  • In-memory collections (LINQ to Objects)



  • Data services (LINQ to Entities)



  • Any other data source that implements the IQueryable interface (LINQ to Anything)



LINQ makes it easier and faster to connect to data sources and manipulate data in your applications. You can write queries in your preferred .NET language without having to learn different query languages for different data sources. You can also take advantage of the IntelliSense, code completion, debugging, and refactoring features of the Visual Studio IDE when writing LINQ queries.` `What are the main features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition?


` `Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)


` `Another main feature of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition is Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), which is a framework that allows you to create rich user interfaces for Windows applications. With WPF, you can:



  • Use XAML, a declarative markup language, to define the layout, appearance, and behavior of your user interface elements.



  • Use data binding, templates, styles, and resources to separate the presentation logic from the business logic and make your user interface reusable and maintainable.



  • Use graphics, animation, media, and 3D effects to enhance the visual appeal and interactivity of your user interface.



  • Use controls, panels, menus, toolbars, dialogs, and other common user interface components to provide a consistent and familiar user experience.



  • Use documents, text, fonts, and printing features to create rich document-based applications.



WPF makes it easier and faster to create user interfaces for Windows applications that are scalable, responsive, and adaptable to different devices and resolutions. You can use the Visual Studio IDE to design, edit, debug, and test your WPF applications. You can also use the Expression Blend tool to create and modify your XAML code in a graphical way.` `What are the main features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition?

  • Use messages, channels, and behaviors to control the communication between your services and clients.



  • Use hosting, activation, and discovery to manage the lifecycle and availability of your services.



  • Use security, reliability, and transactions to ensure the quality and integrity of your communication.



  • Use metadata, diagnostics, and tracing to monitor and troubleshoot your communication.



WCF makes it easier and faster to create service-oriented applications that are interoperable, scalable, and extensible. You can use the Visual Studio IDE to create, edit, debug, and test your WCF applications. You can also use the WCF Test Client tool to invoke and test your services without writing any code.` `What are the main features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition?


` `Windows Workflow Foundation (WF)


` `A fourth main feature of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition is Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), which is a framework that allows you to create workflow-based applications that automate business processes and logic. With WF, you can:



  • Use activities, workflows, and services to model the steps, rules, and data of your business processes.



  • Use designers, editors, and validators to create and modify your workflows in a graphical or textual way.



  • Use runtime, persistence, tracking, and scheduling to execute and manage your workflows.



  • Use hosting, communication, and integration to run your workflows in different environments and scenarios.



  • Use rules, policies, and conditions to define the logic and behavior of your workflows.



WF makes it easier and faster to create workflow-based applications that are flexible, reusable, and maintainable. You can use the Visual Studio IDE to create, edit, debug, and test your WF applications. You can also use the Workflow Monitor tool to view the status and history of your workflows.` `What are the main features of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition?

  • Use Silverlight, a plugin that enables you to use XAML and .NET to create rich media and interactive content for your web page.



  • Use the ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit, a collection of controls and extenders that enhance the functionality and appearance of your web page.



  • Use the Silverlight Toolkit, a collection of controls and components that provide additional features and capabilities for your Silverlight applications.



  • Use the ASP.NET AJAX Library, a client-side library that provides a set of classes and methods for working with data, events, DOM, and more.



ASP.NET AJAX and Silverlight make it easier and faster to create web applications that are responsive, engaging, and cross-platform. You can use the Visual Studio IDE to create, edit, debug, and test your ASP.NET AJAX and Silverlight applications. You can also use the ASP.NET Development Server and the Silverlight Development Runtime to run your applications locally without deploying them to a web server.` `What are the benefits of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Professional Edition?
