WPF versus Java Swing

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hello, I have been having a debate with a fellow co-worker on what direction we should be taking in developing our front end to our apps.  I want to go fully with WPF while he wants to go with Swing.  I am wondering if there are any good current websites that do a comparison between the two?  (All the sites I have seen seem to be dated back to 2006)  I have shown him a few of the cool things you can do with WPF but he says you can do that with Swing as well.....although I am beginning to doubt it since he has never given me 1 example.  I have also searched alot looking for some Swing app that would impress me in some way....and I have yet to even find one.  There also seems to be a big lack of 3rd party components as well for Swing. Well I need some really good ammo as to why we should go to WPF instead of Swing....especially since he has seniority over me. I would also love to hear people's opinion about this as well.

C# / Java webservice


I am writting a client applicatin that acesses a webservice written by another company.  I need to test against this webservice but since it is live I need another place to test with.  I don't have access to the code from the webservice but have added a reference to my project.  I would like to create a test platform using C# which will run on IIS and not Java.

I have created a basic webserive using both the NetBeans platform and the VS/C# platform.  The problem I am having is if I dynamically change the web address from one to the other my client application complains that the webservice is invalid.  I have verified all the calls are the same.

Are there any setting with VS/C# that allow me to configure it to behave more like the Java webservice?  I don't have the server support to host the Java application for full testing along with other problems using the Java version.

I have run both services in the "WCF Test Client" and can see where the WCF service uses the varibles for request and the Java uses body/request but can't get the WCF to follow that format.  I read somewhere about changing the OperationContract with SoapRpcMethod but then the mentod is not longer exposed. I also tried a Web Service in .NET 3.5 instead of a WCF server but that seems to be more trouble and does not

ssrs 2008 R2 - report parameter with no default set throws java script error

We have recently upgraded from SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2008 R2....I am experiencing a problem with my report parameters on my SSRS reports. It seems that my report parameters that I do not have a specified 'default' value throws a java script error when I try and run/render the report under R2.  As soon as I put a 'default' value on the report param, everything is fine.  However, that is not the behavior we need for our reports...the user needs to pick their selection. Can anyone shed some light on this, it seems to be an AJAX problem...I need to be able to have report parameters with a list of values, but no 'default' value on the parameter.
