Automatic Null ChecksAlois Kraus | 11/22/2009 | 0 CommentsI have written far too many null checks in my life. Why do we have even null values? They only seem to provoke a NullReferenceException in our code after all. F# for example has the option type with the value None which is semantically the same as null

Early Retirement for SSO Config Tool

Posted By: EltonStoneman | 11/25/2009 3:20 PM | 0 Comments

[Source:] As Saravana Kumar has blogged, Microsoft have released an MMC snap-in for SSO configuration. It has pretty much all the functionality of the SSO Config Tool I put together a while ago, including: UI for configuring values in an SSO application store MSBuild task to import/export SSO settings from XML .NET class for accessing SSO values The .NET wrapper is pretty rudimentary, and one thing the snap-in doesn’t do is generate a wrapper for typed access…

Choosing Custom XML For Tagging In Word With OOXML

Posted By: Tim Murphy | 11/25/2009 7:59 AM | 0 Comments

In the further adventures of OOXML we have been looking at different approaches to tagging content in a Word template to be programmatically replaced. Initially we looked at simple in-line text as a user defined tagging system. The problem is that this is very error prone. The user has to enter the tag exactly the same every time. On top of that if the user backspaces while typing the tag or spell check flags the tag then the tag will be split into multiple tags. This is less than desirable. Content…

Hey all. Just wanted to let you know that the interview that I did with Javier Lozano ( is now available on DotNetRadio! This was a pretty hefty interview so I had to cut it in half. In the first half of the interview we discussed the following points. How and why was ASP.NET MVC created? What are the pain points of ASP.NET Webforms? What can a WebForms developer expect when moving to ASP.NET MVC? MVC is like BizTalk – it can do anything – it just can’t do anything out of the box! What…

Exchange Outlook Web Access Proxying across CAS Servers

Posted By: cajunmcse | 11/25/2009 11:21 AM | 0 Comments

In many larger environments, Exchange 2007 may be deployed with multiple Client Access Servers (CAS) across the AD site boundaries. The common configuration is to have users access one CAS server from the Internet and it proxy the request to a different CAS in the AD site where the user’s mailbox is located. The Internet facing CAS server should have the Internal URL populated with Forms Based Authentication (FBA) and Basic Authentication enabled. The External URL is optional. The authentication…

Including custom client-side validations in your ASP.NET MVC app

This post is a follow-up on my series about validating business objects throughout different layers of a software system – domain, persistence, and (ASP.NET MVC) GUI. It demonstrates how a self-written validation can be incorporated into a web page (using a bit of JavaScript) and how this can be mapped to a custom validation on the domain side. A short recap In the first part of the above mentioned series, we developed a simple, custom validation aspect that checks if a value really is a member of…

Performance bottleneck – Low latency interface

Background: Out of first few tasks that were assigned to me in my new project, I was asked to help testing team with promoting an existing partially tested BizTalk interface. After little bit of code re-factoring and ensuring that the design has been simplified (removed some unwanted logging etc.), we put code to the test. Functionality wise there were not many issues which surprised us and we quickly got over it. However, it wasn’t for long that we realized that there was some obvious issue hidden…

Redirection for Outlook Web Access with IIS 7 for Internal and External URLs

Posted By: cajunmcse | 11/25/2009 8:16 AM | 0 Comments

Http to Https redirection is commonly a preferred configuration for Outlook Web Access for most organizations. The challenges presented in IIS7 are that the built-in redirection feature only allows relative redirection without a full URL entered. To perform Http to Https, the full URL is required. This becomes an issue when organizations are trying to redirect for both internal and external users who commonly are using different URLs to access the server. The solution is 2 fold. First, turn on relative…

By using the argument line array of Main(string[] args) it is important to know such effect. If you specify a quoted folder (e.g. “C:\Projects\PDE\PRJ_EsriDE_Common\trunk\code\Commons\bin\Debug\”) the ending backslash makes troubles.

Platform Builder: Cleaning Non-Standard Files

During today’s chat with Microsoft’s Windows CE Team, someone asked “is there a way to put additional items to the clean target without modifying makefile.def?” So I decided to see if I could come up with a way. It can’t be done using a sources file. Sources files are only used to set environment variable prior to nmake being called and we need a target named “clean” to handle cleaning the additional files. That leaves and makefile. I tried it in ma

I’ve been working with XML for several years now but I’ve never been entirely sure that I fully understand all there is to know about namespaces. Of course namespaces are central to how document instances are defined by BizTalk, so I certainly had some understanding. However, it’s quite easy to just “get by” without a complete understanding because of the inteli-sense and other helpful features provided by tools like Visual Studio and XML Spy. If I’d had only notepad in which to create the XSDs and…

Synchronous Vs Asynchronous Statistics auto update in SQL Server

Posted By: Max | 11/24/2009 10:08 AM | 0 Comments

Asynchronous statistics auto update in SQL Server would ensure that the statistics are not updated when a query is executed, ensuring timely response. For this option, we need to set AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS_ASYNC to ON and also AUTO_UPDATE_STATISTICS to ON. Here, a separate thread runs in the background, which actually does the job of updating the statistics. So updated stats are available the next time for a query. This can also work the way round, meaning that a query might be using old stats and…
