From that things micro soft has started a new group called Microsoft patterns and practices. This group help to achieve goals in best ways.

This group has build some libraries for plate form called Microsoft application blocks to deliver highly efficient,robust solutions.

Typically, each application block includes the complete source code for the subsystem in both C# and VB, and sample applications called Quick Starts to get you started.

Following application blocks are created.

1) Data Access Application Blocks.
2) Exception Management Application Blocks.
3) Cryptography application blocks
4) Caching application blocks
