Over the next few weeks, I will be building a WPF application using the WPF Composite Application Library (CAL). With each screencast, I will be introducing a new concept from the CAL and showing how it is used in our application. Over the course of the series, we will be creating the Northwind Business Center application which will expose a customer information, order information, inventory, etc. The application will use modules, views, and application services using the CAL.
Part 1 introduces the CAL and shows the steps to get the application foundation set up in Visual Studio. To get started, you will need to have downloaded and installed the WPF Composite Application Library and the Northwind Sample Database. The sample application will use SQL Server but you can change the connection strings to work against SQL Express if that is the route you want to go.
