VB.NET Version of the Code for the N-Layer Design Articles Now Available

My on-line friend Peter has been so kind to translate the code for the Contact Manager Application from my articles about N-Layer Design to Visual Basic.NET.

He used an on-line code translator to do most of the translation and then manually fixed some open issues. I briefly looked at it and tested the code, and everything seems to work fine.

There's one small issue though. My original C# code used using blocks in all data access methods. Apparently, the converter had problems with that so now all using blocks have been replaced with standard Try Catch blocks. I think the "issue" makes sense, as using is just a language trick that eventually compiles to a standard Try / Catch block so when you look at the MSIL, you probably just get a Try / Catch block.

Anyway, I am very happy with Peter's efforts. Peter: thanks a lot for doing this.

I haven't tested this VB version as thoroughly as I tested the C# edition, so if you find an issue with the VB version: please let me know.

Have fun with the VB version which you can find here and at the end of the each article.

Where to Next?
