Managing the SO-Aware Repository with PowerShell

Posted By: cibrax     Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
As Jesus mentioned in this post, SO-Aware provides three interfaces for managing the service repository. An OData API in case you want to integrate third applications with the repository. OData is a pure http API that can be easily consumed in any platform using a simple http client library. The management portal, which is an ASP.NET MVC user interface layered on top of the OData API and probably the one most people will use. And finally, a PowerShell provider that also mounts on top of the OData API to allow administrators to automate management tasks over the repository with scripting.  The SO-Aware PowerShell provider, in that sense offers around 40 commands that enables simple management scenarios like registering bindings or services or more complex scenarios that involves testing services or sending alerts when a service is not properly working.   This provider can be registered as an snapin in an existing script using the following command, $snapin = get-pssnapin | select-string "SOAwareSnapIn"if ($snapin -eq $null){ Add-PSSnapin "SOAwareSnapIn"} Once you have registered the snapin, you can start using most of the commands for managing the repository.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

build repository from SQL 2005? for a Linq, Jquery autocomplete



  I have the a question am going about his correctly I have a database for categories, it has many fields and about 4000 records,  but with a Jquery autocomplete needing speed and the fact that I only need to return a key and category name. I did the following:  (oh just to note, MVC2, Ajax project)


    public class categorySearch
        public Guid Category_GUID { get; set; }
        public string Category_Name { get; set; }


and now for the repository

    public class categoryRepository
        internal List<categorySearch> FindCategory(string searchText, int maxResults)
            List<categorySearch> category = new List<categorySearch>();
            dbWebEntities storedb = new dbWebEntities(); 

            var getcat = storedb.Categories.ToList();

            foreach (var item in getcat)
                category.Add(new categorySearch { Category_GUID = item.Cat_GUID, Category_Name = item.Category_Name});

            var result = from c in category
                         where c.Category_Name.Contains(searchText)
                         orderby c.Category_Name
