SOAP Toolkit 2.0: New Definition Languages Expose Your COM Objects to SOAP Clients


In SOAP Toolkit 2.0, the Services Description Language (SDL) has been replaced with the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) and the Web Services Meta Language (WSML). WSDL and WSML files describe the interfaces to a service and expose COM objects to SOAP clients. This article describes a custom tool, IDL2SDL, which takes an IDL file and produces WSDL and WSML files without waiting for a DLL or TLB file to be generated. Also shown is a customized development environment in which WSDL and WSML files automatically reflect the changes to IDL files.

Add Release-Only try-catch to CLR languages

Deploying a software, it's a common practice to encapsulate top-most function calls and/or event handlers with general try-catch blocks to deliver an error description to the user instead of just having him/her see the software exiting unexpectedly when unexpected exceptions occur. Unfortunately, during debugging it is most annoying to reach these log entries or message boxes instead of having Visual Studio halt where the exception occured. At the time of writing it is possible to designate particular exception types to halt the debugger when they are actually thrown. But it becomes a nuisance when there are many exception types to be marked this way. Plus, it becomes contra-productive if there is a scenario when expected exceptions of the marked types occur regularly and "Continue" has to be selected again and again in the debugger. Thus, I'd like to suggest to add a new, Microsoft specific, "try" keyword to all of the CLR languages (plus C++), perhaps something like "__try". This new kind of try should create a try-catch block only when compiling in Release mode. (This behaviour might apply to other configurations as well. I suppose the Configuration Settings dialog to provide an additional checkbox column to provide an option to select whether a particular configuration will create a try-catch block or not.)   See here for

Search content of different languages in one language of MOSS

Hi, Hope you guys can help to answer this Search question. E.g. English MOSS is installed, content in English, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Japanese are input to the system (either in Word/Excel file, ASPX page, Blog entry or Wikis page). In this case, how can the user search content by entering search keywords in languages other than English? The reason I ask this question is that: MOSS Search Engine uses English work-breaker/stemmer in the crawling and query process in MOSS English Version. Then, it cannot distinguish which languages are being crawled, e.g. pretending Japanese and Chinese as English when crawling the content. Is there any advanced way to solve this issue in MOSS 2007, besides installing various languages of MOSS in different servers? This problem exists in SharePoint 2003, so now I wonder if there is any improvement in 2007. As you know this is especially important in HK environment. Every customer ask the same question in Pre-Sales demo. Thanks in advance. Paul

SpellCheck (System.Windows.Controls) support for other Languages

Hi, I have a question about SpellCheck class. I use .NET 4.0 and I know that 4 languages are supported. I need to write an easy editor with spell check functionality. It will need to support Dutch language. Depending on when Dutch Language will be supported, the current project will go in different directions. Could you provide me any information about when it is going to happen (if it is going to happen)? With kind regards, Michal Bilinski, Meteo Consult, the Netherlands.

dll's from different programming languages



I have an .NET 4 application that uses dll's (class libraries) built in different languages (one in C# and one in C++), the main application being in C#. As promised by Microsoft, the whole thing works fine, at least on my development computer. The problem starts when you port the application to other machines. Visual Studio automatically places the referenced dll's in the release folder, so I just distribute this folder to the end users. However the program does not work on most machines (it only does on computers that have Visual Studio 2010 already installed): when you click on the executable nothing happens, not even an error message appears.

I know that the problem is the dll's because if I compile the whole thing together, it works fine (the reason I use dll's has to do with the flexibility of re-targeting). Am I missing something when I distribute the program? Why does it work if VS is installed?


Search: How to add a new language to languages detected by crawler?


Dear all,


I think my question is not so well formulated, so let me explain:

In the advanced search web part, it possible to add a filter on the language of the results. By default the list of language proposed to end-users is English, French, German and some others.

When editing the properties of that web part, it is possible to modify that list to propose different languages (in "Languages" element of the xml). BUT you can only choose from the languages previously defined ("LangDefs" element).


What I would like to do is to add/install a new language definition, because the language I am interested in is not listed under "LangDefs".

Obviously, just editing the XML won't do the trick.


From what I understood, language of documents in automatically detected by IFilter when crawling documents.

So, do I need a new IFilter for my specific language?

I justed installed the language pack for SharePoint, so maybe it also includes the new IFilter?


And when correct crawler is installed, where do I find the LangDef information (including custom id for the language, that is not standard language id)?


I hope someone here is able to help me.

Many thanks in advance!

Programmatically activate Alternate languages


Hey, I got a sitecollection and I've installed german and english language pack on my server. In websitesettings -> Languagesettings: I can manually activate an alternate language, but I haven't found a way to do it manually.

I've tried to use AddSupportedUICulture for and I've tried to set IsMultilingual to true, but both ways seem not to work.
