I was checking my emails and I saw this posting in LinkedIn
Having in mind that WPF was released as part of .NET 3.0 with Windows Vista release, I doubt that even WPF group founders/architects has 7+ years with XAML and WPF :)
| ||Today I’ve installed System Center Operations Manager 2007 and run into an issue with WebConsole. When started it gave me error 402. Access Denied – the yellow screen of death for ASP.NET applications. Luckily it was very easy to fix – with a single option change in IIS Manager:|
Just Windows Authentication should be enabled.
| ||Note: In order to install Operations Manager 2007 WebConsole and pass prerequisites check IIS 6 Management compatibility should be installed:|
Hope this helps
This is not very wide known feature in Visual Studio that has been there even in version 2005 but still there are not many articles on it.
When you try to get code coverage from functional tests then the default UI features in VS won’t help. This is because code coverage is measured only on referenced assemblies (from what I was able to understand). The steps below actually describe the process of collecting code coverage data.
In order collect code coverage information on service – could be remotely hosted WCF service, or local WCF service but hit through endpoint – following steps should be executed:
1. Instrument the assemblies – did you think that code coverage is that simple :). VsInstr.exe is the tool for that.
1: VsInstr.exe /coverage wcfService.dll
2. Deploy assemblies – This step means actually installing deployed instrumented assemblies on the IIS. On other side default WcfSvcHost.exe also can be used:
WcfSvcHost.exe" /service:%cd%\WcfService.dll /config:%cd%\WcfService.dll.config
3. Start VS monitor that collects data -this is separate tool - VSPerfCmd.exe. Sample usage is
VSPerfCmd.exe /start:coverage /output:”C:\CoverageData.coverage” /cs
4. Run your tests that hit the service.
5. Stop the monitor.
6. Open c:\CodeCoverageData.coverage in VS
Hope this helps…
Ops. Almost forgot. I wasn’t able to make it work on x64 bit machine. For this purpose I had to use x86 version of .. Windows, of course :) !
Here are some useful links:
“Office 2010” will be official name of Office 14 and will be ready in “the first half of next year”.
Office 2010 — previously known by the code name "Office 14" — will include slimmed-down versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote that let people create and edit documents in a Web browser. Consumers will have access to a free, ad-supported version, and Capossela said the company is still hammering out what to charge businesses that want a version without ads.
There are too many acronyms in today’s worlds so let me help you understand these two:
- WCF –Windows Communication Foundation
- UFC - Ultimate Fighting Championship
You might started to think how these two are related?!
Well they are not :). But I find some analogy between the martial arts events and the new initiative to popularize .NET platform for enterprise programming – WCF called WCF Champ Web Campaign.
Flickr). This is the pretty face of UFC.
Developing web services old-fashioned way could be as cruel. Evidence can be seen on official website of WCF Champ Web Campaign as well as on YouTube in Hi Definition format.
WCF Champ Web Campaign website offers great links to resources for jumpstart with this great framework. The resources are grouped in several categories describing why WCF can be of great use for:
- Individual Developer
- and what the future look
Take a look at WCF Champ Web Campaign website. It’s fun and useful.
Note: The analogy between WCF and UFC is done only for fun and shouldn’t be considered in any other way.
