AzMan on Vista with MS-SQL as repository

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
We have a product with a fairly extensive library of code for creating, updating, and accessing an AzMan repository utilizing ADAM for the backend. It all works quite well. However, it doesn't really work on Vista (apparently due to issues with ADAM) and since AzMan on Vista can use MS-SQL Server as its backend repository, we thought we could just change the connection string and we'd be good to go.   Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case. The store seems to get created correctly, and we can create an application correctly within the store, but when we try to assign the user as policy admin to the application, we get an "ACCESS DENIED" error. Here is a code snippet:   Code Snippet // NOTE: This is set based on whether connecting to ADAM (XP) or MS-SQL (Vista) string connection = "";   // Initialize storeConsole.WriteLine("Initializing store");AzAuthorizationStoreClass azStore = new AzAuthorizationStoreClass();azStore.Initialize(5, connection, null);   Console.WriteLine("Add system policy administrator");azStore.AddPolicyAdministrator(ID.User.Value, null);azStore.Submit(0, null);   // Create System Application GroupsConsole.WriteLine("Adding groups"); // Add "Administrator Group"appGroup = azStore.CreateApplicationGroup("System Administrator Group", null);appGroup.Submit(0, null);   // Add "

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
