VB.NET Support


The Company I work for only use VB.NET, I wonder if Web Client Software Factory can be used to develop Visual Basic ASP.NET Web Site? I understand that Web Client Software Factory is currently developed using C#, but in Visual Studio 2005, it allows VB and C# to be co-exist in a same web application. Can someone has more expertises give me some hit.

The recipes in Web Client Software Factory June 2007 include both C# and VB.

Any possible RoadMap or Release Date for supporting VB.NET version of the Factory?

Learn C#!!!, anyway, checkout dotnetnuke - http://www.dotnetnuke.com/

You can use it to develop web sites in VB.NET now, just without the use of the templates and recipes. This isn't really a big deal after you become familiar with the patterns and concepts of the WCSF. Having said that, I'm voting for the VB.NET template and recipe support too. :o)

Although C# is great and I personally prefer it, many of our clients are VB.Net and don't have the option nor the time to have the team learn C#. I vote for having VB support in the templates and recipes.

I'm in the same boat - company I work for has mandated the use of VB.NET.

I am definitely looking forward to seeing WCSF generate projects in VB.NET - Soon? Please?

We are working on creating VB.NET version of the recipes. We will have the recipes available before the end of April.

Since April is going to end, any updates on the VB version of WCSF

We released the recipes on codeplex. The VB.NET recipes will be part of the WCSF R 1.1 release that will come out in may.

Could you please provide a link?

I dont thinks this issue should be put fixed without a link to download the new recipes for VB

I have to agree with the previous poster. To show that the item is fixed and not released is kind of a misnomer. There should be a option for pending, or something other than fixed. I know I'm checking daily for the release.

I too agree that marking this "fixed" without explaining where we can/will be able to find the recipes is slightly infuriating! (by the way, I like many others appreciate all the work that is going into this project, don't mean to sound negative, just really desperate to get using this on my projects)
