Developing with Managed Code


Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 provides the option of developing applications in managed code using Visual C# or Visual Basic .NET. Managed code makes use of the rich set of classes that .NET Compact Framework, provides. The Windows Mobile Professional SDK and the Windows Mobile Standard SDK supplement these classes with Windows Mobile-specific classes. These Windows Mobile-specific classes provide support for features such as the Pocket Outlook Object Model (POOM), and the ability to access the onboard camera of a Windows Mobile device.


Windows Mobile 6.5 includes the .NET Compact Framework version 2 SP2 in ROM.
