Visual Basic.NET extends the reach of VB by incorporating protocols such as XML, SOAP and HTTP that provide the ability to easily create Web enabled applications and embrace the Internet as a platform for application development. Intended for intermediate to advanced corporate developers, this text provides techniques that make it easy to build distributed Web applications, details techniques used with .NET and the classes of the services framework that provide a simplified and unified programming model, and instructs how to use the power of object-orientated programming to relieve the burden of complicated versioning and deployment.PART I Value types also have several behaviors that you might expect including ac Default initialization to zero ac Copy by value. in which ... can be treated as an object and passed by reference since by definition. a value type is simply a sequence of bits. ... you refer to the boxed type versus the unboxed type such as VC++. in VB .NET you dona#39;t have to worry about explicitly boxing and unboxing your code.
