  • Addendum on the WSE Tracing Post

    There's a piece missing off my previous post. I copied and pasted and lost it - I need to get a decent blogging tool or HTML editor because, at the moment, I'm using the one that I wrote and it's getting messy :-) Anyway, here's the extra piece on my tracing...
  • WSE 2.0 Tracing Utility

    With the release of the Web Services Enhancements 2.0 (go here http://msdn.microsoft.com/webservices/building/wse for a download) I thought I’d publish my efforts at providing a secondary tracing utility. WSE 2.0 has tracing facilities that can be switched...
  • Some New bits in System.Threading in the Whidbey Community Preview

    I’ve been looking around the System.Threading namespace in the Whidbey Community Preview to see if I can spot some new things that have been added there. Threading is always something that I’m interested in as it underpins so many other bits and...
  • WSE2.0 Released

    I've had a lot of people waiting for the release of WSE2.0. I haven't seen an official link to this news yet but Aaron Skonnard's blog has a mention that WSE2.0 was released at TechEd today. Here's the link http://skonnard.com/archive/2004/05/24/359.aspx
  • PINVOKE.NET Add-In for Visual Studio.NET

    Adam Nathan's created an add-in for VS.NET that will let you generate PInvoke signatures without having to figure out what the parameters need to look like. You need network connectivity in order for it to work because it's pulling down the signatures from...
  • Hosting ASMX in Whidbey without IIS

    As I wrote about a couple of days ago, I've been playing with the Whidbey Community Preview with a view to getting ASMX web services hosted without relying on IIS. So, a Console or a Windows application using the HttpListener class and the ASP.NET runtime in...
  • BizTalk 2004 Whitepapers

    A new set of white papers have gone up on the GotDotNet site -check out the list here http://www.gotdotnet.com/team/wsservers/ but it includes a new performance white paper and a secure deployment white paper.
  • TechEd Prep WebCasts

    Whether you're going to this year's TechEd or not there's a great list of web-casts collected here http://www.msteched.com/content/webcasts.aspx that are intended to help you prep for the conference. Happy viewing.
  • ASMX/Whidbey talk at TechEd

    Just spotted this link http://weblogs.asp.net/mattavis/archive/2004/05/20/136177.aspx which should make my recent musings redundant :-)
  • Some new bits in ASMX Web Services in the “Whidbey” .NET frameworks

    There have been a lot of public articles and presentations about what’s coming in the Whidbey version of the .NET frameworks and Visual Studio.NET 2005 for ASP.NET web forms. We have exciting features such as Personalisation, Master Pages, Code-Beside...
  • Microsoft Application Translator?

    This was a new one for me - Microsoft Application Translator ( http://www.microsoft.com/globaldev/tools/mat.mspx ) - follow the link to get on the beta. Claims to do translation of various UI bits after the event. As I say, I haven't looked at this right now...
  • Longhorn build 4074

    The Longhorn preview build (4074) is available on MSDN for download to subscribers. In order to understand what's in this build versus what was present in the PDC build last year it's worth spending the 12 minutes or so watching Dave Massy's video which explains...
  • Talk, Talk, Talk

    I've been doing a bit of speaking recently. Firstly, I'm involved in talking at the UK Technical Roadshows (see the link here for info) - we ran this up in the North West last week and we're re-running in Edinburgh, Birmingham and London as listed in the schedule...
  • Blogging Statistics

    My blog's been getting more hits - it's very exciting to look at the stats that my hoster (WebHost4Life) provides around the access to this web site. April was, I think, my best month ever with around 1000 unique visitors to this site making around 7000 visits...
  • Mono at Beta1

    Interesting stuff - I haven't installed it or tried it, mind.
