PRO: Designing and Developing Web Applications Using Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0


Designing the Application Architecture
• Plan the division of application logic. Choosing between client-side and server side processing, planning separation of concern, (for example, partitioning functionality between controllers and evaluating business and data service consumption), planning for long-running processes (for example, synchronous vs. asynchronous)
• Analyze requirements and recommend a system topology. Designing interaction between applications, mapping logical design to physical implementation, validating nonfunctional requirements and cross-cutting concerns (for example, communications, operations management, and security), evaluating baseline needs (for example, scale and quality of service)
• Choose appropriate client-side technologies, JavaScript, ASP.NET AJAX, jQuery, Microsoft Silverlight
• Choose appropriate server-side technologies, User controls, server controls, partials, custom HtmlHelper extensions, Web parts, inheriting controls, dynamic data controls

Design state management, Designing an application for the proper use of application state, session state, and request state, Designing the User Experience
• Design the site structure. Designing application segmentation for manageability and security (for example, using areas, shared views, master pages, and nested master pages), appropriate use of style sheets, client-side scripting, themes, client ID generation, rendering element modes, routing engine
• Plan for cross-browser and/or form factors, Evaluating the impact on client side behaviors, themes, bandwidth, style sheets (including application design – task based or scaled rendering of existing page), when to apply Browsers file, structural approaches, user agents, different platforms (mobile vs. desktop)
• Plan for globalization, designing to support local, regional, language, or cultural preferences, including UI vs. data localization (for example, implementing at database level or resource level), when to use CurrentCulture vs. CurrentUICulture, globalization rollout plan (for example, setting base default language, planning localization), handling Unicode data (for example, what fields to include, request encoding), right-to-left support, vertical text and non-Latin topographies, calendars, data formatting, sorting

Designing Data Strategies and Structures
• Design data access, choosing data access technologies such as ADO.NET Data Services, Entity Framework, Windows Communications Foundation (WCF), and ASP.NET Web Services
• Design data presentation and interaction.
pulling data from data layer and binding into views, pages, and controls, and pulling data back to data layer by using ModelBinders, data source controls, and HtmlHelper extensions, or programmatically
• Plan for data validation, Contextual validation vs. data integrity, where to validate data, synchronization between UI and data layer, data annotations

Designing Security Architecture and Implementation
• Plan for operational security, Approaches for process- and resource-level security, including local and remote resources, Code Access Security (CAS), including trust level, process identity, application pool, and identity tag
• Design an authentication and authorization model, Authentication providers, including WindowsForms, and custom user identity flowthrough (for example, trusted subsystem), role management, membership providers, URL authorization (for example, AuthorizationAttribute), file authorization, Authorization Manager (AzMan)
• Plan for minimizing attack surfaces, Input validation, throttling inputs, request filtering, where to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

Preparing For and Investigating Application Issues
• Choose a testing methodology, Black box, white box, integration, regression, coverage, API testing, performance testing, security testing, load testing, Web testing, unit testing
• Design an exception handling strategy, HandleError attribute in MVC, common error pages, post-error processing, global vs. page level
• Recommend an approach to debugging, tools and approaches for a given scenario (for example, memory dumps, DebuggingAttributes, crashes vs. hangs, deadlocks, assembly binding), when to attach to process (Visual Studio Development Server vs. IIS vs. Internet Explorer), root cause analysis
• Recommend an approach to performance issues, which instrumentation to watch or create (including performance counters and event tracing) to analyze performance issues, page and fragment caching

Designing a Deployment Strategy
• Design a deployment process, Windows Installer (MSI) vs. xcopy vs. Web Deployment Tool, scaling, rolling deployments
• Design configuration management, using the ConfigSource attribute (for example, connection strings), staging vs. production vs. development, topologies, machine.config vs. web.config, using IIS vs. Visual Studio Development Server during development, application pools, configuration inheritance
• Plan for scalability and reliability, scaling up, scaling out, at physical level and at architectural level, impact of offloading technologies on load balancing, including state, synchronizing machine and encryption keys
