|DRV204: Windows Driver Development for User Mode Driver Frameworks (UMDF)|
This seminar describes the how to write, package, install, and debug drivers using User Mode Driver Frameworks.
Developers of drivers using User Mode Driver Frameworks. These will typically be functional and filter drivers for lower speed devices on USB.
In this seminar you will learn the common principles and interfaces used by all WDF device drivers, and the details of User Mode Driver Frameworks.
We start with a very simple "null device" driver, and then fill in deeper and deeper layers of details and possibilities, ensuring that you understand each new idea in its proper context. This approach also provides needed repetition, so that you see the important points more than once and from different points of view.
Key operating system and Windows I/O subsystem principles
WDF and UMDF concepts
Introduction to COM
Introduction to UMDF data structures (objects) and interfaces
A "starter" UMDF driver
Device driver development environment
Plug and play basics; .INF files; driver installation
UMDF driver debugging
Handling simple I/O requests
Implementing I/O requests on USB devices
Serialization and synchronization issues
Advanced I/O request queueing
DRV150, Windows Internals for Driver Developers, or equivalent knowledge and experience. (This may also be provided by any of our other Windows internals seminars.) Attendees should understand the basic principles of demand-paged, virtual memory, multitasking operating systems. Attendees must have at least a reading knowledge of the C programming language. Familiarity with device driver development on other platforms will be helpful, but is not essential.
Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows 2000
Duration and formats
5 days with labs
This seminar is only offered with hands-on labs. As with our other driver seminars, a lab exercise allowing you to immediately apply the material follows each key point or principle in the lecture presentation. Each exercise builds on the ones preceding. A simple USB device is used as the "target" device for most of the example code and lab problems. All seminar attendees (both in the labs and lecture-only versions) will of course receive an electronic copy of complete, debugged and commented solutions for all of the lab problems.
