SQL Server: Build Apps that Provide Real-Time Information and Customized Content Using SQL Server No

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

The adoption of wireless devices continues to spread unabated, and organizations are looking for new ways to get in touch with customers through these new mobile devices. In the past, unsuccessful ideas such as push technology were used to send targeted information to customers. Now, SQL Server Notification Services uses the SQL Server 2000 database engine and the .NET Framework to promote a new breed of notification applications that will allow relevant, consensual communications to be sent to any subscriber device.Here the author provides an architectural overview of the core features that make up SQL Server Notification Services. Along the way he discusses how they can be used for pushing Web content.

SharePoint 2007 + PowerPoint gives "Contacting the server for information" for a long time

I've never had this issue for but today all of a sudden I tried to open a PowerPoint document posted to a document library on our SharePoint 2007 site and it gave a message saying "Contacting the server for information" for a long time.  It eventually opened but not until after 5-10 minutes.  Does anyone know what might have caused this?  The file itself is pretty small, only 70KB, and as I said we haven't had this problem before.

Restoring a content database from another server/AD does not synch user profile information for new


In my SharePoint 2010 beta environment, I have user profiles synching with Active Directory.  I just restored a content database from a separate environment/domain and logged in with my current account.  When I try to create an alert on a library/item, I get the error:

“You do not have an e-mail address.  Alert has been created successfully but you will not receive notifications until valid e-mail or mobile address has been provided in your profile.”

I went to My Profile and found that the My Profile had the right e-mail address (I guess because this is on my My Site Host).

But when I went to My Settings, it did not have any e-mail address for me (I guess this is because it is at the WSS content database level and the e-mail address hasn’t yet synched from the user profile database).

Does anyone the timer job that synchs the user profile with the My Settings for a site collection in a content database?

Issue is posted to my blog with screenshots here:



Essential SQL Server Date, Time and DateTime Functions

The essential date and time functions that every SQL Server database should have to ensure that you can easily manipulate dates and times without the need for any formatting considerations at all.

Date/Time Conversions Using SQL Server

There are many instances when dates and times don't show up at your doorstep in the format you'd like it to be, nor does the output of a query fit the needs of the people viewing it. One option is to format the data in the application itself. Another option is to use the built-in functions SQL Server provides to format the date string for you.

OLAP: Build an OLAP Reporting App in ASP.NET Using SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services and Office XP


Many organizations analyze their business-critical data using Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) technology. OLAP-based data mining provides a way to query multidimensional data sets and drill down into the data to find patterns. ASP.NET and the Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) enable Web-based OLAP reporting. The OWC controls include PivotTable and Chart components that can be embedded in a Web page and scripted by programmers. In this article, the authors build a Web-based OLAP reporting app using ASP.NET, OWC, and SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services to illustrate the process.

ASP.NET Pipeline: Use Threads and Build Asynchronous Handlers in Your Server-Side Web Code


Fortunately for developers, threading in ASP.NET is a lot easier than it was in ASP. In this article, the author takes a look at threading in the ASP.NET HTTP pipeline, and explains how threads are managed efficiently without the involvement of the developer. The article considers how the common language runtime threadpool is used by ASP.NET to service requests, looks at the pooling mechanisms used for handlers, modules, and applications, and covers both IIS 5.0 and IIS 6.0 and how they differ in their approach to request processing and thread allocation. Finally, how and when to use asynchronous handlers is discussed for developers who still need to use threads in their own applications.
