Can’t see the AppFabric Directory on x64 systems…
This is one I have to jot down. If you’re using tools like Reflector, or just want to open up any of the files in the c:\windows\system32\AppFabric directory, you’ll run into some issues – like, the tool that you’re using complaining that “can’t find c:\windows\system32\appfabr... errors. On x64 systems, you need to replace the path with: C:\Windows\SysNative\AppFabric This is the FileSystem redirector virtual path as described here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/e... ......

The “Jersey Doesn't Stink” website – does it really need a site?

I have to admit, been in Jersey all my life – and yes, it does stink – but probably no more than any other state.  Grass isn’t always greener – and yes, we do have grass in NJ.

Spaces in type attribute for Behavior Extension Configuration Issues
If you’ve deployed your WCF Behavior Extension, and you get a Configuration Error, it might just be you’re lacking a space between your “Type” name and the “Assembly” name. You'll get the following error message: Verify that the extension is registered in the extension collection at system.serviceModel/extensi... So, if you’ve entered as below without <system.serviceModel> <extensions> <behaviorExtensions> <add name="appFabricE2E" type="Fabrikam.Services.App... ......

Using a WCF Message Inspector to extend AppFabric Monitoring
I read through Ron Jacobs post on Monitoring WCF Data Services with AppFabric http://blogs.msdn.com/b/end... What is immediately striking are 2 things – it’s so easy to get monitoring data into a viewer (AppFabric Dashboard) w/ very little work. And the 2nd thing is, why can’t this be a WCF message inspector on the dispatch side. So, I took the base class WCFUserEventProvider that’s located in the WCF/WF samples [1] ......

AppFabric – where are all the monitoring events?
When you’ve just gone through a setup of AppFabric and you’ve got some WF/WCF things happening, if you start looking at the Dashboard and you see nothing, it might be as simple as restarting SQL Agent. I generally don’t reboot my system for several days and after installing AppFabric the SQL Agent jobs didn’t start firing right away. Yes, even running a boot to VHD, you can still put the machine to sleep (just logoff and click on Sleep)… So, after spending time looking through the SQL monitoring ......

App_offline.htm and SharePoint and wholly contained images…
The question came up today if we could use an “app_offline.htm” file along with HTML in that file that would reference images. First, I wasn’t 100% sure if the app_offline.htm would work, but it sure did. Since it’s just the Asp.net hosting process that detects the file, it circumvents loading any HttpApplications (SharePoint) beyond just serving up the HTML content. The second question was about having something more than text, specifically <img> tags. So, since the HttpHandlers are taking ......

BizTalk 2009 Orchestration Fails to Find References on External Assemblies
If you’re developing BizTalk 2009 solutions (Orchestrations) and you’ve split your schemas out into alternative assemblies (projects) – sometimes you’ll get odd not found issues with some (if not all) of the types in those referenced assemblies. You can try everything – recompile, de-gac, re-gac, – doesn’t matter. Well there’s a hotfix for this: http://support.microsoft.co... FIX: You experience various problems when you develop a BizTalk project that references another BizTalk project ......
