.NET Framework 4.0 = "BizTalk/SOA Express Framework" ?

יום שישי, נובמבר 30, 2007

.NET Framework 4.0 = "BizTalk/SOA Express Framework" ? Ok, let me first say that this is MY OWN current mashup ! Well lets look at the current status: In the year 2005, Microsoft have released the .NET Framework 2.0. In it was the FREE ( as opposed to the "you have to buy" ) products: ASP.NET 2.0 WebParts, ASP.NET 2.0 Memebership provider (a "Forms Authentication component") and SqlServer Express 2005 = what you got is the ability to write you own  "SharePoint 2005 Express Edition", great no ? In the year 2006, Microsoft have released the .NET Frameowrk...

יום חמישי, נובמבר 22, 2007

CardSpace AFDS 2.0, Identity Lab and WS-SX A few good things happened to CardSpace this week ( other then the release of .NET 3.5 ), and I order then according to importance Vibro.NET talked about ADFS "2" at TechEd Europe ( which was in Barcelona ) The Microsoft CardSpace gang opened a new http://www.federatedidentity.net/ which you can read about here: Identity Lab Goes Live The Microsoft CardSpace gang announced about CardSpace support for Oasis WS-SX standards For me the most importent one is the first, because ADFS 2.0 ( ADFS = Active Directory Federated Server ) would support CardSpace as part of it's infrastructure.

"Michelle (ma belle)" – Beatles

יום שני, אוקטובר 22, 2007

The name Michele Leroux Bustamante (AKA "Das Blonde") always reminds me of the of the Beatles song "Michelle (ma belle)". I AM A GREAT FAN of both her book learning WCF as well as her boss's book Programming WCF Services. Well it seems that meeting the person was greater ( for me ) than hearing her WCF Webcast Series. Well what can I say - I bought the book, for two reasons at first: 1. a CardSpace ( with WCF ) book, 2. the webcast series was great. But now I have A 3rd one, the benefit of having,...

Enterprise Single Sign-On – Part1 , Starting point

יום שבת, ספטמבר 29, 2007

Single sign-on (SSO) is a method of access control that enables a user to authenticate once and gain access to the resources of multiple software systems. As you can see from the definition the Method helps in the Authentication Level, not in the Authorization Level, which is a completely different level. The basic occurrence, thus most common, is in one of the following: a homogeneous IT infrastructure a single user entity authentication scheme exists a user database is centralized In short where a user credentials is stored on a LDAP Database, Like Active Directory, or on a Rational Database, like ASP.NET Membership provider DB, for user...

Windows CardSpace Team Blog @ blogs.msdn.com – Finally !

יום שלישי, ספטמבר 25, 2007

CardSpace: Behind The Code - http://blogs.msdn.com/card/ ( what else could it be ;) ) Well I don't know if WPF / WF / WCF teams have a BLOG outside the netfx3.com domain , but now the CardSpace team has one , and the above is their "space". Thinking of it, as opposed to the others, CardSpace is almost half product half technology ... Why ? the concept is based on the use of public WS-* protocols, and the CardSpace was written from scratch, with disregard to the Microsoft "Product", for Linux and Mac by Novell , using plain simple C++ and TK...

Windows CardSpace PPTX Presentation at the architects user group

יום שישי, יולי 27, 2007

Hi I know at some of you have waited for the PPTX ( for now no PPT version , perhaps later ). I have to say that of the reasons for the delay was : 1. I tried to produce a normal PPT version , and it takes a while 2. The converted PPTX to PPT has produced from a 15MB file a 45 MB file of PPT :'( , thus I have tried most of the week to upload that version , and didn't succeed ( perhaps later ? I'm not promising  )It seemed, as I have expected, that the...
