Windows Azure application development and deployment

After playing with Windows  Azure Application development SDK  I decided to show what are the steps involved to complete a simple Windows Azure application in local Fabric development  and moving the sample application to MS  Windows Azure portal  that is  CLOUD environment.

First let us look at the local development environment setup.

To setup Azure local environment you need to install the following tools in your local machine.

1) .NET Framework 3.5 with SP1.

2)  IIS 7.0 (with ASP.NET and WCF HTTP Activation).

3) VS.NET 2008 with SP1 ( development IDE).

4) Windows Azure Software Development Kit (January 2009 CTP)

5) SQL Server 2005 0r 2008 Express

6) Windows Azure Tools for Microsoft Visual Studio January 2009 CTP
