I got much support from the community with the SharpBox project on codeplex. To reducing the effort and increasing the simplicity for contributors I decided to move the main repository of SharpBox into the codeplex infrastructure. All developers can check in into main branch without the delay of my shadow copy sync from the internal SVN server. The continuous integration server (CCNET) will perform a full build after every check-in.

have fun and thanks for contribution

I've spent time the last few month checking out much of the latest in code generation tools. Again one of the most complete and comprehensive is Iron Speed Designer - now in version 7.1. I had the good fortune to talk for about a half hour with Alan Fisher of Iron Speed and I will be adding content here in the next weeks. Hopefully I can also present some examples. Here's the lastest from their press release. For Immediate Release Iron Speed,Inc. Sephorah Green 408.228.3429 sgreen@ironspeed.com http://www.ironspeed.com ...
Chris Nicola left this excellent comment on Justin Etheredge’s blog: Even with a competitive way to do SSJS [(server-side JavaScript)] on the Windows platform, I just have to ask... why would anyone? Server-side JavaScript means that the server portion of a web application is written in JavaScript. Personally, I believe that server-side JavaScript will be the next big advance in web development. If I were Microsoft I would be looking to hit a touchdown out of the ball park with server-side JavaScript, ...
Sometimes it seems implementing functionality in ‘standard’ asp.net takes several times longer than with MVC. In my case, I wanted to do the following when changing a checkbox on a form page (page uses partial page update). Note that I needed to use both client side and server side functionality, and the page updates only part of the page. On checkbox changed, display an “are you sure” popupup. On ‘Ok’, call server method to modify data on the backend, re-bind part of the page. On ‘Cancel’, close ...
Metrics and Analytics around Video, Social Media, Broadband and Mobile My notes from this session at Digital Hollywood. Speakers: William Lederer – CEO Kantar Video Eric Forst – Head of West Coast Business Dev – MEC Interaction Charlie Rahilly - Pres of National Advertiser Platforms for Clear Channel Radio Craig Macdonald – SVP Covario Kenneth Papagan – Pres Rentrak Corp Business problem is that 96 percent say that we need good metrics – right now it is not clear and not transparent on what companies ...
I've encountered a LOT of posts on this--some of them represent a LOT of unnecessary work. Here's the simple way: 1. Navigate to Administrative Tools. 2. Go to Internet Information Services (IIS) 3. If you last looked at something, Navigate to ABOVE your server name -- where it says "Internet Information Services" 4. Look to the right. You should see something that looks like this: computer local version -------------------------- ------- ------------- YourComputerName yes IIS V6.0 You're DONE ...
IMPORTANT: Before reading this post open this link and let it play. This is my response to the 2nd Developer Blog Banter. The question asked is How do you organise your tests. Do you separate your unit tests, integration tests and UI tests into separate projects? Do you do anything specific to keep track of your tests? What naming conventions do you use? Do you run them before a check in or is that what the build server is for? The first developer blog banter was about technology stack. I organise ...

This post is written for those systems where a central MSMQ server sends messages to a large number of MSMQ clients. "Large" here could mean hundreds, maybe thousands. MSMQ is not designed to be a real-time system - although you can use it as such, that wasn't the main focus. Instead MSMQ will ensure messages get delivered, no matter how long it takes. This means that you can send messages to thousands of destinations but not necessarily instantly or concurrently. To understand why this is, we need ...
Entity Framework 4 Code First CTP4 was released in July and the API for developing without any edmx continues to mature and get better. Code First allows you to define your entity framework configuration with a Fluent API similar to Fluent NHibernate. Although the API for EF Code First is very user friendly, you should still have integration tests to verify that you’ve configured your entities correctly. This post will walk through configuring EF4 Code First optimistic concurrency. Suppose I have ...
MSMQ is a very robust product and people expect it to be able to look after data no matter what. To test that it does, customers can perform scary tests like hitting the power switch while the server is running. Obviously a power cut is a real-world event and customers should not expect to lose messages (which usually also means losing money) when one occurs. Surprisingly messages DO disappear and customers rise up to condemn MSMQ's transactional robustness. But you need to dig deeper to find out ...
Here is a collection of approaches I've pulled together from my archives for telling if MSMQ is installed without being able to physically go and bring up Computer Management to check yourself. Please feel free to let me know if you have developed any of your own tricks to do this. Points 5.12 and 5.13 are from the MSMQ FAQ: 5.12 Is there a programmatic way to know if Message Queuing is installed on a computer? Yes. Try to load Mqrt.dll (using the LoadLibrary API). · For MSMQ 1.0 and 2.0, the DLL ...
The objects that help you find this info in SQL Server are in sys.tables and sys.columns SELECT tbl.name AS table_name, SCHEMA_NAME(schema_id) AS schema_name, col.name AS column_name FROM sys.tables AS tbl INNER JOIN sys.columns col ON tbl.OBJECT_ID = col.OBJECT_ID WHERE col.name LIKE '%YourColumnNameHere%' ORDER BY schema_name, table_name; This will bring back every table that has a reference to '%YourColumnNameHere%' ...

It has been over a year since the last time I updated my list of Florida technical communities and a lot has changed since then. Joe Healy, our Florida Microsoft Developer Evangelist, maintains a list for each of the main areas in Florida, but this only covers the .NET-focused groups. Taking what he has started, I have put together a similar list (based on the information Joe maintains) that covers the other technical communities that I know of. If you are part of a technical user group community ...
I was looking for a simple way to schedule a job to perform a nightly backup of the production system and restore it to a dev system. I know there are many ways of achieving my goal and I am sure my solution will be frowned upon by some (if not all J) but it works for me so I thought I would share my experience with others. For my scenario the requirement was quite straightforward. Backup a single 5GB database then restore to an existing dev system (over writing the existing dev system). This article ...
With most of our systems pre-configured with SQL server, it was only today that I ran into this issue with my fresh installation instance of SQL Server 2008 R2. I had just created a new SandBox DB to experiment with some aspects of Entity Framework 4.0, but as I was saving foreign key changes to tables I had already created I got the following error: Figure 1 - Unable to save table schema changes error With some research, I found my answer in SQL Books Online: Any Schema changes made to a table would ...
The thing to realize is that the destination is never the most important part of the journey. It’s the journey itself. When you start a journey, you are never fully sure where it is going to end up. We started the journey down package management for .NET three times with Nu[bular] (we in this context means the nu team, not me in particular, I was only involved in the last reboot) before we decided to try an existing infrastructure with Ruby Gems. I have always said that I would use the best tool ...
In today’s world, agility and flexibility are two vital assets that every company must have in order to stay on course. Organizations that can adjust to market trends and rise to meet new challenges are the ones that will come out on top. Having the technology to communicate on an ad-hoc basis and meet in real-time collaboration with co-workers and decision-makers allows for many businesses to do just that. However, many companies are still stuck on old communications technologies that cause for ...
La mensajería es ya una aplicación crítica para cualquier empresa, pero disponer de una solución adecuada no es sencillo. Los requisitos regulatorios cada vez son más complejos. La fusión y diversificación de actividades requiere de un ajuste rápido de la capacidad. Cada vez es necesario tener mayor conocimiento y experiencia en la tecnología y el balance entre el comprar o construir está cambiando. Una solución atractiva a este reto es el Microsoft® Exchange Online, un servicio de mensajería de ...
As you can see, creating users only takes a minute or two, so creating a handful of accounts during a trial is no big deal. But when the time comes to start bringing dozens or hundreds of accounts over, you’re going to want a more automated approach. In the Users / Overview subtab, you’ll find an “Import users from a file” link under Actions. The file in question must be in CSV format. There’s no need to reinvent the wheel here. Simply download Microsoft’s offered .csv file template or file (or both) ...
La primera tarea en la preparación para un despliegue BPOS es garantizar la compatibilidad de la plataforma con todos los dispositivos cliente. En cuanto al software, el sistema operativo es bastante simple: Windows XP (Professional o Tablet Edition, tanto SP2), Windows Vista (Business, Enterprise, Ultimate o Home, todos los Service Pack 1), o MacOS X 10.5. Para aquellos curiosos sobre el manejo de dominio utilizando Vista Home, BPOS no sincroniza sus credenciales con el Dominio de Windows, conservando ...
Recently I have been reading about how some companies offer services that would provide you with Team Foundation Server capabilities in the cloud. When we talk about cloud (and it seems everybody is doing it), we need to differentiate between the services running and also the type of service we (as a company or individual) will be running. We can talk about 2 potential possibilities for TFS that would be effective, but each is different in its own way: SaaS: Software as a service, ideal scenario ...
For companies that are Microsoft partners, there has been change in the wind for some time. Ever since last year’s Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in New Orleans, Microsoft has made it clear it thinks that it has has too many partners that those partners are too small. Since WPC ‘09, the Enterprise and Partner Group (EPG) has focused strongly on Global Systems Integrators (SIs) like HP and CapGemini, and much less on smaller or regional SIs. From WPC ‘09 onwards, Microsoft said smaller ...
Recently I was working on a BizTalk project that included a secured (SSL) SOAP connection using a WCF-Custom send port that was pointing to the partner’s endpoint. Our send port raised an interesting exception when sending a test message to our partner: A message sent to adapter "WCF-Custom" on send port "<SEND PORT NAME>" with URI "<PARTNER’S URL>" is suspended. Error details: System.ServiceModel.Communi... An error occurred while making the HTTP request to <PARTNER’S ...
Back in April I began to work with Oracle again after a multiple year absence from doing so. So naturally I decided I would install Oracle on my home system so I could reacquaint myself with it. That proved to be more difficult than I expected. I was able to get Oracle 10g Express downloaded and installed but could not connect to it. So, to save someone else some of the grief I went through let me go through the final sequence of steps that resulted in a solid working Oracle development environment. ...
[Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/E... * This post is pure speculation, not based on any special insider knowledge, so don't get too excited * BizTalk 2010 has RTM'd, and the Developer Edition is now free. It seems an unusual move to give it away, with the price point of other BizTalk licences. Enterprises who actively use BizTalk will have an IT budget that will probably stretch to MSDN subscriptions for their dev team; conversely, SMBs who aren't prepared to spend £500-odd on a Developer ...
ShaprBox version 1.0.1 is out and contains some requested community features and a bunch of bugfixes as well. Many thanks to all people who reported issues and feature requests from their projects.

Here’s how we migrated our TFS 2008 to TFS 2010. This is not an in-place migration. What is generally recommended as upgrade path is to backup the TFS 2008 DBs, restore them in the new TFS data tier and then install TFS 2010. This will migrate all the projects at once. However, we wanted to keep the TFS 2008 environment running for a while, so this path did not do. We first set up a new machine (and a new domain, but that is a whole other story) with TFS 2010 and WSS 3.0. The database tier was on ...
I was lucky enough to be nominated to receive the Windows Phone 7 from a representative at Microsoft. The phone that was given to me was the LG GW910. Please note that this phone is not mine, it’s going back in a couple of weeks. The review of the phone below is my personal opinion. Keep reading to find out if I’m actually going to buy one and to see other screen shots. Back to the phone, the first thing that I did was remove the sim card from my iPhone 3G and drop it into the WP7. It immediately ...
My last project had me do some SharePoint 2010 Ribbon customizations. I though I would blog about some of the things I learned! There are many ways to create a Ribbon component. You could use a custom action to a tab to an existing Ribbon or in the case that I will be discussing/demonstrating is creating a complete new tab for a SharePoint Application page. The steps developer should take : Work through the Hand-On Lab provided by Microsoft on Customizing the Ribbon. This is part of The SharePoint ...
[Source: http://geekswithblogs.net/E... I've had a need on a couple of projects for a monitoring system to record progress of a long-running transaction. Enter Heartbeat - a library which does just that. It's a project of mine on github: Heartbeat progress monitor. The typical use-case is for monitoring a lengthy batch load, where Heartbeat will record progress at set intervals. The intervals can be time-based, or progress-based or both - so you can have an overnight process which writes ...
Has it ever happened to you that you are sitting with your laptop and need to do something with a computer on your local network and it turns out that computer is in a sleep mode and you have to walk to it and move the mouse or press some key to wake it up and then come back to your laptop to do what you initially wanted to do with it? Indeed, if you have to walk to a computer rather than remotely access it than the benefit of having local network is already somewhat undermined. My particular situation ...
I've never seen this before, a BT update on Windows Update: Update for BizTalk Server 2009 (KB2252691) This update fixes an issue that prevents the ENTSSO service from starting, after installing .NET Framework 4. The registration of an assembly used by the Enterprise Single Sign-On Service to access SQL Server does not specify the correct version of the .NET Framework. When .NET Framework 4 is installed, the assembly will try to use the newer framework and then fail to load ...
Often we want to have more than one form in the web page, just like in HTML or in classic ASP - except ASP.Net throws an error saying 'Only one <Form> tag can exists in Body'. The error message thrown by ASP.Net runtime compiler is not comprehensive, it should say that there can be only one <Form> tag with runat=server attribute. This means we can have more than one form tags in our ASP.Net HTML but only one of them can be server side. Rest of the forms have to be client side HTML forms. ...

By default, SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) will not let you save changes to the designs of your tables. When you attempt to do so, it wants you to drop and re-create the table. You will typically see a dialog similar to the following: However, SSMS will actually let you perform such a change without have to drop the table and re-create it. To enable this feature, you need to select Tools / Options from the Menu. Then, navigate to Designers / Table and Database Designers and uncheck the option ...
This past week BizTalk 2010 RTM’d. BizTalk Server 2010 Developer Edition is Free. More details on that here: http://www.microsoft.com/bi...

I installed the new BizTalk Server 2010 Developer Edition, released a couple of days ago, on a Windows Server 2008 R2 virtual image. The installation went very smoothly, but I did notice one problem. Initially I attempted to upgrade the beta version of BizTalk Server. Brian Loesgen reports that this worked OK for him. However, I couldn't do this. The installer reported that upgrade from the Enterprise Edition to the Developer Edition is not supported. I attempted to uninstall the beta, but got an ...
I am hanging recently around a lot in the MS SQL Server Forums where I have a lot of fun. One of the interesting questions that popped up today was about how to execute several operating system commands that span multiple lines. Besides, even though the job step editor presents you with a text box, this is not the same as writing a batch file. All the editor does it sees the first command statement. What to do? Some people resorted to writing subsequent commands in the next job step, but this sounded ...
I returned just last night from a short trip to Redmond. While I was there, I learned some news that I wanted to share, but I wasn’t permitted to. But today the news was made public: Oslo, once destined to be a full fledged-wave of Microsoft technologies that would facilitate and promote model driven-development, is dead. The Oslo name summons Shakespearean images of King Hamlet slaying his Norwegian foe. But even without such literary context, the fall of Oslo is quite dramatic And it’s important ...
The BizTalk Server team announced today that BizTalk Server 2010 has RTMd. That's a relief, as my reputation was on the line regarding RTM before the end of the month. Just this Tuesday I confidently told a prospective customer to expect an imminent announcement. I've been playing with BTS 2010 for a little while now. It has been my constant companion while writing several chapters for the forthcoming BizTalk Server 2010 Unleashed. It looks great. As well as bringing BTS up to date with Visual Studio ...
Just read this post announcing that Biztalk server 2010 will be available from October 1st 2010. Yeah that s my best news of the day. I m worried, they dont say anything about the ESB toolkit 2.1 which was provided with the Beta version. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/biz... Enjoy ...
So it's official. Don Box has blogged an update on SQL Server Modelling. As widely rumoured, he has confirmed that Quadrant is dead. The shock is that the model repository has expired as well. M is still hanging on in there, but we don't know anything more about what the future holds. For some time, the official word has been that it would arrive in conjunction with a future SQL Server release. I detect a possible change here, in that Don simply says 'We are continuing our investment in this technology ...
