Microsoft Enterprise Library


The Enterprise Library is a collection of integrated application blocks created by the Patterns and Practices group at Microsoft.  This library contains useful block such as logging, security, encryption/hashing, and other components of a good application implemented in drop-in packages or, at least, ones that can be extended.

 We use our own logging, encryption, security and data access infrastructure and it would have been good to have been be able to use a library implementing best practices in these areas rather than re-inventing our own wheel.  Still the library wasn’t there when we started but for next time…

The most up-to-date downloads and discussions seem to be on Codeplex.
