7. Conclusion

Both languages have something in common, the Conversion Wizard, which is more complete than previous editions and does the best to migrate code written in Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual J++ 6.0.  Visual Basic "Whidbey" provides new features for rapid application development that aims to improve productivity and ease of use while delivering power. As regards Visual J# I have no experience and no interest on it so I just created a project and captured some screens.

Visual C++ Projects


Finally Visual C++ targets the whole spectrum of applications from managed code to unmanaged code, from the server to the thin-client and smart-client. It provides a dynamic development environment for creating Windows–based applications, .NET–based applications, dynamic Web applications, XML Web services and smart device applications using the C++ development language.

Distributed Service Solution


This solution is connected to the Dynamic Systems Initiative, which looks to automate how businesses design, deploy, and operate distributed systems. When a new distributed solution is created Visual Studio introduces the Application Connection Designer, which helps you to model all of the information necessary to deploy and operate a distributed system, including required resources, configuration, operational features, policies, and so on. Once finished modeling the designer can implement the distributed solution by creating new projects based on the model. This build lacks of the Logical Datacenter Designer whose function is to enable to specify settings for the operating system, network topology, security, and so on, all the way through to the hardware standards supported in the deployment environment.
