When you need to startup WCF service conditionally - depending on your application configuration it is quite easy to achieve it by checking the ServiceHost.BaseAddresses collection. If your app.config file does not contain your service configured the collection will be empty. Here is the snippet: ServiceHost host = new ServiceHost(typeof(MyServic... ......

I ve been recently creating few reports that required dates as parameters. It is quite common to have a report that must be provided range of dates (from and to). I investigated few reports that was created by my colleagues and I found those reports are not intuitive. Let me explain: When I see two dates that must be provided to a report I believe that ......

I thought all I need to do is to publish the libraries (I need WCF only) with my application in the bin folder - xcopy it. Unfortunatelly it occurs it's ......

Many times in my development live I had to plug-in some code into an existing application that should be xeceuted during startup / cleanup / ... . If you own the application you can always hardcode another line of code that invokes your static initialization class. But: What to do if a circular dependency occurs? Is the hardcoding clean? In such case ......

When you want to do something weekly do it daily - this is one of principles that I find very useful. Small steps allow you to achieve a snow ball effect - do something slowly step by step.
