My team is using the June 2008 release for a WPF desktop application.

Is there a published set of steps to help us to understand the changes we will need to make to update?  I see even the core set of namespaces have been expanded.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi Tracy,


The following article from the Prism-v2 documentation contains the breaking changes between Prism-v1 and Prism-v2

·         Upgrading from the Composite Application Guidance for WPF - June 2008


If you do not mind, I will briefly share my own experience migrating from Prism-v1 to Prism-v2. Most of the changes we performed to the code were pretty quick, and we were able to get the application running really fast.

However, we spent some time with the Unit Tests with some considerable changes in the Region/Region manager mocks, which might have been faster if we’d have used a mocking framework in the first place.


I hope this helps.
