I recently had the not-so-great-or-fun pleasure of a pure .Net to Oracle application show-down :) And yes, I say that with some pun. In summary, keeping to proper form, I developed a DataProviderFactory that provided the following: SQL Server native client API Oracle BDC to SQL Server BDC to Oracle Now, BDC = Business Data Catalog - a new service provider native to MOSS (Micrsoft Office SharePoint Server) 2007. And trust me - the BDC ROCKS!!! Back to providers. My provider factory basically provided ......

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 - Configuration / Setup - Login failed for user ''. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server configuration.
After installing MOSS and launching the SharePoint Configuration Wizard (psconfig.exe) - you are ready to begin the last leg of your MOSS installation/setup. Here you provide the setup with the particualars for your server. Often you are installing MOSS with SQL Server being remote from MOSS, and you will be using a domain-level service account for the installation. The following is an example of the data you might enter during this step: (if the pic does not show - click here) Here you have a named ......

Developing with Visual Studio on a Vista Workstation
As Vista gains momentum, and many of us get our hands on it - we're quickly faced with a question that not many seem able to answer. More disconcerting - there is nothing solid out there to provide direction. If I am a ASP.Net developer - I want IIS available for my development pleasure. More important, I will probably be using Visual Studio to crank out my applications. There is a lot of effort in the launch of Vista and the new Office products - but what about the development community? Especially ......

The IIS Admin Service service terminated with service-specific error 2149648394 (0x8021080A).
The IIS Admin Service service terminated with service-specific error 2149648394 (0x8021080A). IIS Admin Service goes away after restoring a VHD / VPC Server I recently had the unexpected pleasure of losing my IIS Admin server - altogether!!! Translate - 150% !!! Now, before this - everything was going great - except. During an upgrade of MOSS (Microsoft Office SharePoint Server) I encounted an issue that forced me to restore a VPC image - essentially bringing over another copy of the VHD and firing ......

Visual Studio Team System - Visual Studio code-name "Orcas" If you are heavy into .Net development and Visual Studio (VS) - you are already aware of VS's rich IDE and are probably familiar with some, if not many of the VS extensions, like Tools for Office (VSTO) and integration with other products like BizTalk and the Windows Workflow Foundation (get an intro to WWF and how to use it).

IronPython - Microsoft IronPython - The revitalization of a great language - Python
IronPython, Microsoft's answer to my own and many other developer's request for a serious language for ASP.Net development - is gaining momentum and that's a great thing.

A true, object oriented programming (OOP) language, Python is an open source initiative that has been widely adopted and it runs on a host of different platforms / operating systems (OS's). IronPython is a new flavor of Python that runs on .Net providing integration ......

Microsoft .Net 3.0 Framework - What is .Net 3.0 and what is new? As a developer in the field, I am asked periodically about one new technology or another.
