Since the focus of this column is service-oriented architecture (SOA), I thought now might be a good time to step back and take a wide-angle look at the general concept and what it means to developers.

Windows Script Host (WSH) 5.6, a major upgrade for the WSH environment, provides some significant improvements over previous versions. A brand new security model that is tightly integrated with security in Windows XP allows administrators to place fine-grained restrictions on scripts reducing the risk from malicious code. In addition, local scripts can now run on remote machines, and enhancements to the object model reduce the amount of boilerplate code needed when writing professional code. This overview of WSH 5.6 explains these changes and how .NET and scripting work together.

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.

This is my second ASP.net project, and I'm looking for suggestions or approaches rather than specifics, but here goes.
The project, once done, will provide a "portal" into a limited portion of the client's database. All clients are using a SQL database, but various server software products are involved (MSSQL, MySQL, and others).
My question, however, has more to do with the "look and feel" of the finished product. We want to be able to integrate our 'portal' easily into the client's websites and have it look as seamless as possible. Obviously, placements of logos, etc. -- but also colors, fonts, etc.
Client sites tend to be simplistic in design. We envision the customer placing a link to our site from theirs, and our site will be running on IIS on their server. At least that's the plan.
The goal right now would be to make as much of this "parameter driven" as possible, so that a lot of the install can be accomplished through some simple settings, isolated in one or two files such that at installation time we can tweak those settings and be up-and-running in a short period of time with a site that integrates reasonably well with the customer's.
But I'm uncertain as to whether there is a better approach. Obviously, we could try to redes
We have build an MOSS 2007 environmentÃÂ on 64 bit servers. We build the reporting services server and configured in SharePoint integration mode. InitiallyÃÂ configuration looks fine with reporting services integration with green indicators.
After creating a web applicationÃÂ and accessing the web site from the report servor, i have found the followingÃÂ errors:
Server Error in '/' Application.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Configuration Error Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

I am trying to install reporting services and join it into existing service farm.
Main MOSS 2007 is on one pc, with config bases etc, while reporting services, reporting services db will be on other pc.
We are using same domain account to run sharepoint services and reporting services.
I've installed web part of MOSS on that other computer, also reporting services and sql server, set reporting services in integration mode.
Either way, it wont work for me:
If i am running the service of reporting services as Network Service account, then the /reportserver page will complain about some generic error "probably you dont have access to the farm if you are in integrated mode" etc....
I've read that i should include networkservice into a group WSS_WPG which i did, no luck anyway, same error
If i try to type the adress into the integration with reporting services in moss admin page, i will get error like "expected xml received html" and alot of red text.
If i switch service to run from domain account (the one that is used for running sharepoint on the domain) (we did the spn thing, didnt work either), the /reportserver page will open

All my documents are opening as read-only when I open from SharePoint sites even when I click on "Edit in ..." option on some machines.
The users seem to have correct permissions on the site.
All my files/docs in MOSS 2007 open as read-only with Office 2003 standard edition in some machines.
The user seems to have sufficient permissions to edit but still not able to do so.
