Enterprise Library

Author: Microsoft

Latest version: 5.0 - April 2010
Added 2005-02-10Updated 2010-05-06

Library of application blocks designed to assist developers with common enterprise development challenges. Application blocks are a type of guidance, provided as source code that can be used "as is," extended, or modified by developers to use on enterprise development projects.
Application blocks help address the common problems that developers face from one project to the next. They are designed to encapsulate the Microsoft recommended best practices for .NET-based applications. They also address scenarios not directly supported by the underlying class libraries.

Contains the following general purpose application blocks:
- Caching Application Block: incorporate a local cache in applications.
- Cryptography Application Block: incorporate hashing and symmetric encryption in applications.
- Data Access Application Block: incorporate standard database functionality in applications.
- Exception Handling Application Block: developers and policy makers can create a consistent strategy for processing exceptions that occur throughout the architectural layers of enterprise applications.
- Logging Application Block: include standard logging functionality in applications.
- Security Application Block: incorporate authorization and security caching functionality in applications.
- Validation Application Block: allows you to centrally define validation rules using configuration or attributes, and validate data from anywhere in your application, including integration with Windows Forms, ASP.NET and WCF.
- Policy Injection Application Block: provides an approach for separating cross-cutting concerns from business logic using declarative policies that are attached at runtime to methods on your objects.
- Unity: dependency injection container

Also includes:
- The Application Block Software Factory: simplifies the process of building application blocks and providers through guidance automation.
- Visual Studio-integrated configuration editor: edit Enterprise Library configuration files directly within Visual Studio.

Enterprise Library also includes a set of core functions, including configuration, instrumentation, and object builder services. These functions are used by all other application blocks.

Shared Cache

Categories: Caching

Author: Roni Schuetz

Latest version: 3.0.5.0
Added 2008-02-09Updated 2009-01-28

Distributed and replicated memory object caching system.

Shared Cache provides distributed replicated cache to minimize the load factor. It consists in using two or more servers in a farm. It replicates all data within the cluster. All your cache nodes are all on different servers. In case one of your servers get restarted, it will receive all nodes automatically from its parent.
All data is available locally which minimizes the way and any Get operation is faster than to call a third system.

Features include:
- based on byte[] array
- Supports cache-wide or element based expiry policies
- Cache eviction policies / purge / cleanup strategies: CACHEITEMPRIORITY, LRU, LFU, TIMEBASED, SIZE, LLF, HYBRID.
- Distribution caching topology
- Replicated caching topology
- 100% managed code written in C#
