Acropolis – The end

The Acropolis team just announced today that Acropolis will not advance from CTP to a supported release. They also announced that they want to help customers who'd like to take Acropolis into production be successful until an alternative is available. The good news is that all the great work the Acropolis team did will be rolled out in the future versions of .NET and also used for guidance and best practices for building WPF Composite Clients.

Data Dude: Synchronize vs Refresh

27 באוקטובר 2007

What is the difference between the "Refresh" button in "Solution Explorer" and the "Synchronize" button in "Schema View? I was confused too, until I read Gert's post about it. Synchronize - refers to synchronization of state between the Solution Explorer and Schema View. Refresh - cause a complete reload of all schema objects (reading all files from links from the project file); parse the fragments and execute them against the design validation database.

This is the 3rd post in the series of posts about MSBuild. You can read them at: Introduction to MSBuild. Create custom task to MSBuild - step by step. As you know, TeamBuild builds the latest version by default. At the Target "CoreGet" in the MSBuild script (you can find it at Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Build.targets file), it gets the latest version from source control to the local workspace on the build machine and build the source.

Astoria DataSource Extender

PhaniRajuYN posted a very interesting post about Astoria DataSource Extender. (You can read my Getting Started With Astoria post to get more details about Astoria). The main issue is that it's a "Database in the cloud", which means that your database is hosted on the Web. PhaniRajuYN Extender helps one retrieve data and post data to a database on Astoria using JavaScript.The Extender encapsulates its own Server-Side handler so that  you don't have to write a Server-Side proxy to avoid Making Cross-Domain Requests from the Client browser. You can read the post and download the source and sample from...
