COM+ Integration: How .NET Enterprise Services Can Help You Build Distributed Applications


The .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) is Microsoft's next-generation component technology. The CLR is a replacement for COM, but not for COM+. COM+, now called .NET Enterprise Services, is the Microsoft object runtime environment for scalable system development. This article explains how to implement and deploy COM+ configured classes using the CLR, how to access object context and call context, and the rules for managing context-relative object references. Also discussed are ways to manage precious resources such as data connections and pooled objects, and the relationship between COM+ and the new .NET remoting architecture.

How to scale from Single Farm Services to Enterprise Farm Services


I have a question onHow to scale from Single Farm Services to Enterprise Farm Services. i.e

Today , if i have a Farm with All Services like Managed metadata and Search running .. . but  tommorow  client introduce 2 new farms then there are 2 options w.r.t to service sharing

a) either do cross farms sharing of services ... which i understand how it will happen

b) or because of XYZ reasons , go for Enterprise Service Farms which hosts your manage metadata service / Earch for all your farms .... 

So, question is in this case how one will move existing managed metedata / Search service to Enterprise Service Farm ?


Upgraded SQLServer 2008 Enterprise Evaluation after 180 day period expired...Services start but stil



I have a SQLServer 2008 Enterprise (180 day eval) installation that had expired.

I downloaded and intalled SQLServer 2008 Enterprise (Full version) from Technet

and ran the "Version Upgrade" tool.

The Upgrade tool correctly identified the expired instance and reported that it

had successfully upgraded the expired instance.

The OS processes will start but when I attempt a connect, I get a "Evaluation Period Expired"

error message.

Is it possible to do an "upgrade in place" after the 180 day evaluation has expired or do

you have to uninstall then re-install ?

Many Thanks in Advance,

HOW-TO: Use Enterprise Services to notify Windows app of ASP.NET activity (C#)


This is a C# port of the topic I posted here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-SG/clr/thread/215052d4-4773-4c04-8ca8-92e32d369363 

This is in response to many people who had asked about notifying a applications/services of activity in a web application. Many thanks to Peter Huang of Microsoft for helping me understand Enterprise Services and COM+events in a .NET envrionment!!! keep up the good work!!!
  1. Create New Solution: ComEventDemo
  2. Add new class library project ComEvent
  3. Add new class library project ComEventSink
  4. In ComEvent, open properties and set the following:
    1. Application Tab -> Assembly Information: Check Make Assembly COM visible
    2. Signing Tab -> Check "Sign the assembly",
         in the drop down, select "."
          in the wizard, give the key file a name and uncheck "protect with password"
  5. In ComEvent, Add a reference to "System.EnterpiseServices"
  6. In ComEvent, rename Class1.cs to "DemoEvent.cs"
  7. Add this code to "DemoEvent.cs":  

Message: Integration Services evaluation period has expired. -- version = enterprise??

I have three instances of SQL Server 2008 R2 on a server... two are evaluation versions and one is Enterprise.  We started getting messages in the event log earlier this week indicating that SSIS had expired.  Being that we only use SSIS for production things I assumed that it had mistakenly been installed via the eval media instead of our enterprise media.  I uninstalled it, rebooted, and then re-installed SSIS from our enterprise media.  I am still getting this error message.  How can get make SSIS work again?

Installing and Uninstalling Services

Installing and Uninstalling Services.Unlike most projects you create in Visual Studio .NET, Windows Service projects cannot be run directly from the development environment by pressing F5. This is because the service in the project must be installed before the project can run.

You can quickly install your service application by using a command line utility called InstallUtil.exe.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Building a Searchable Phone Directory with Windows SharePoint Services

I want to continue to build out the intranet site we've started in our previous articles. A standard item in every intranet is a staff/employee list. Most companies implementing Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) are large enough to have a database that contains all employees. We will use the aggregation features of SharePoint to include data from this database into our intranet.

Building a 3-Tier App with Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Azure Table Storage

Silverlight 3, .NET RIA Services, and Windows Azure Services Platform makes a 3-tier Cloud application easier to build: Silverlight 3 as presentation tier, .NET RIA services as the business logic and data access tier, and Windows Azure Table as the data storage tier. The sample application in this article demonstrates the architecture with a simple Survey application with all these technologies working together from Windows Azure.

New Features in Windows SharePoint Services 3.0

Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is the next version of WSS 2.0, released on 2007, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 (MOSS 2007) is built on top of this. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 takes full advantage of Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 and the core Microsoft .NET 2.0 runtime. WSS 3.0 offers a lot of new features and programmability support. I have consolidated a list of new features and enhancements in the below section:
