Play Open Up Your Applications with the Managed Extensibility Framework
Today, it is difficult for applications and frameworks to meet an open-ended set of needs. Building in extensibility allows third-party customization, however there are many challenges in doing so. The Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF) is a new extensibility model in the Microsoft .NET Framework that addresses many of these problems. It provides as simple declarative model for application developers and extenders. Come to this session and learn about our Composition model and the APIs that work with it. Learn about composable parts, exports, imports, and the composition container that brings them all together. See how using the model you can develop open-ended applications that can easily be extended both internally and by third-parties.
