CODE.Framework - MVC/MVVM Framework from EPS/CODE/Markus Egger

CODE Framework (CodePlex), CODE Framework (Visual Studio Gallery) (Markus Egger)

"Development framework from the makers of CODE Magazine, Markus Egger, and EPS Software Corp.

CODE Framework consists of various components and tools that help developers with common aspects of business application development, such as simplified SOA development with various clients, or WPF development, data access, and much more. The main focus of this framework is to enable productive, flexible, and highly maintainable business application development.

Note: Most of the CODE Framework originates in our much larger (and not free or open source) Milos Solution Platform product. This means that while the latest build is currently flagged as "beta", it actually contains mostly very mature and time-tested code that has been migrated from the Milos product. We are still in this migration process. Expect new builds with more and more components on an ongoing basis.

Documentation and articles will also be forthcoming over the next months and weeks and will be published in CODE Magazine (in print and online) and be linked to from here. We are also working on some videos and some tools and project/item templates which will make it much easier to use this framework. Please check back in a few days. We are hoping to release some of these very shortly.


There's no articles, details, examples, etc yet (as noted above), but this framework, from a long time "Friend of .Net," looks pretty cool. CODE Magazine is one of my favorite magazines and one of few I still pony up the funds for every year (well, actually I re-up for 3 years at a time, but you know what I mean ;)


The TestBench project (as well as the rest of the Solution) does compile and run and it shows off some very early Metro UI work...



(Remember this is a Dev PoC/Test harness/play with this a little and see if it works" little app... So don't jump up and down if it's now complete yet. That's where YOU come in!  :)

Anyway, keep your eyes open from more that I'm sure will come on/from/about this.

Actually, ignore the test bench and instead download the CODE Framework Tools through the Visual Studio extensions manager, which gives you a template for WPF apps and if you use that, out pops a complete WPF app. Even working Metro style, if you want :-)
