Technorati Tags: Silverlight In this article Tim Heuer concentrates his attention on RIA Services deployment. "So you’ve been playing around with Silverlight and WCF RIA Services (the artist formerly known as .NET RIA Services) and you are ready to deploy.

All has been well, you’ve done your testing and you are ready to publish to your server. ...

This podcast was recorded at TechEd Europe in November 2009. I get a chance to sit down with Mike Flasko, Program Manager in the Data Services team.

Mainly going to use this as notes and such of what were discovering by overlaying WCF on an existing application. So the set up... In existence is... 1) a working web application 2) a server back end to support the web app (that we get to use for our needs) 3) a relatively complex hierarchy of classes (e.g. a inherits from b inherits from c, some interfaces are also referenced by c, as well as complex types.) Our app will be a client/server application where the client will be in various offices ...

Soo… Long time no write… A quick project was assigned to me and two other guys at work the other week – one of those quick 2-3 day projects, the ones were speed is paramount. Quality can be worked on after release… Sooo.. 3 parts, 3 of us, we split it 3 ways and all was good – one on database duty (using LINQ to SQL), one on UI (Adobe Flash 10) and me, on WCF service… All was going well, the database was up and running, I was using the libraries to interact it with it without any problems, then we ...

WCF Service Testing: A challenge for a WCF service developer is to know whether the service developed by him is interoperable with other applications made in different technologies. Often People will write sample windows applications to check whether WCF service else we tend to use dynamic Web service invocation tools which can put up a request to a WCF service and show you the result set. One such tool is SOAP UI. I had a requirement where my WCF service should communicate with Java clients. Once ...

Let's face it, it needed a rename. Mitch.Web just lacks everything in terms of marketing, so I've re-branded my (currently error logging :P) framework to "The Evil Little Developer's Toolbox" in game with my EvilDev theme. I've also made advancements (not guaranteed to work yet) on my error logging framework, mostly in terms of a new Services Project, and the Logging Service. The logging service, is a WCF Service, designed to log errors to a database. The idea behind it, well, I generally focus my ...

We used MsTest framework for a project that mainly had integration tests for Wcf Services, and found particularly useful to use AssemblyInitialise method to start the services hosts before all the tests are run and AssemblyCleanup to stop all the hosts after all the tests in the assembly have run. At some point, the company decided they would like to change this project to use NUnit instead of MsTest (for sake of uniformity, as all thi other project were using NUnit). The only problem that I saw ...

All these days I was trying out with ADO.Net Dataservices in my local Visual Studio 2008 express which used to run in the Cassini WebServer which comes along with that.

Had a short training on VMWare on Tuesday, the software development department finally got the official permission (read: get a license) to use VMWare Workstation. I’m no stranger to Virtual Machines (VMs) – started playing with Virtual PC 2005 a fwe years back and I understood the general concepts of hardware virtualization. The biggest problem I have with VMs in general is the slowness; I’d rather develop directly on my PC, which is faster. Can’t say I’ve delved deep into it, but I know enough ...

I haven’t written a post in a while, and this has shown up in my Twitter feed a few times. So if you care, here you go. I decided to take a break from all of the social networking stuff and see how life is/was before all of that. It kept me from “noodling” with my phone which seem to make my wife think I was working. She likes it better when she believes I’m working less, and actually so do I. One plus. On Twitter I picked up on cool conference that was happening and I attended, and many other bits ...

Have been reading about WCF lately. And to my understanding it’s a very extensible framework. I have had the opportunity to attend quite a few training on WCF as well as to read through some great documentation about WCF. Intrigued by the same, I thought of giving it a try myself. Let me just briefly give you a pictorial representation of the same as best I could comprehend. Hope the above diagram is self explanatory. Unless it is not let me just try and make things a bit clearer. Rather than going ...
Lets today talk about the ABC's of WCF. Before we look deeper into WCF, these parts are essential to very concept of any communication framework. Essentially its just a way to get to a resource outside. How do you best describe a reachable resource. If you try and find a analogy, let's say, you are staying in Roswell, GA. You are a good developer. And you are currently working on some task, that requires a deep knowledge of MAPI. And the only book, who has a treatment of the subject that you are ...

I thought it would be useful (at least to me!) to summarise the new stuff in Entity Framework 4 given it actually comes in 2 parts. The list is a simplified and categorised version of this and this. General Foreign Keys now added: EF 4 now includes a new type of associations (Foreign Key Associations) that allow you to have Foreign Key properties on your entities. They are the default although the EF v1 Independent Associations remain. Lazy Loading on by Default in new Models: Also name change from ...
I thought twice before actually posting this. It was mostly because, of a guilt, that I might be recommending a wrong way of doing things. But then I did realize, that, even if it seems to wrong, it does provide some benefits. Anything that is beneficial, is not necessarily wrong. The problem at hand is, we want to enable ASMX style Authentication in WCF. Its not that WCF does not do a good job when it comes to Security, but because people are more inclined to send the credentials in clear text. ...

Looks like I’m heading to LA.  I’m really excited to be attending the PDC this year.  I went to the PDC in 03 (where they announced WCF, WF, WPF) and it turned my brain to mush by the middle of day two.  ANyone else going?  Anyone like to share a RSVP promo code to save me some $$$?  I’ll buy you a drink or two!

 

Hope to see you all there!

I’ve taught a number of classes recently to people who are just getting started as software developers either as a way to change careers and move into our profession or just to people who love computers and want to learn more about how to program.

In an introduction type ...
