Solution/project structure


Hello, I am working in a aspx web application that must be built in several separate "modules" with different functionality which will be partly developed by different teams.

However, I need the completed app to reside in ONE virtual directory. There will be a single startup page. I need session state to be preserved across pages in different modules.

I structured it as one solution with different Web Projects and one class library project with common functionalities.


1) is this the right approach to do this? Or which one would be better?

2) each time I add a new web project to the solution, a new web.config gets created. What do I do and where do I put them?

VS 2010 + framework 4.0 + TFS

Regarding TFS and source control, I have a single Team project, the solution and web projects are inside it.



Url rewrite with timer



I'm trying to rewrite my urls, which kinda work now.

The problem is that in my page i'm using a timer to refresh the data every couple of seconds.
But in Mozilla firebug I can see that the url keeps changing: it's getting bigger after each timer update, like this:


etc etc, until it returns a 404 not found.

What can I do to prevent this?


Arabic QueryString with Url Rewrite Solution


Alsalamo 3alaykom ,

as we know that if you use Intelligencia.UrlRewriter.RewriterHttpModule or IIS URL Rewriting , we will face problems with arabic urls

as this

http://localhost:1234/Pages/???? ?????? ?????? ??????????

and the Rule is :

<rewrite url="~/Pages/(.+)" to="~/ShowPages.aspx?Page=$1" />

you will recive the QueryString["Page"] Like this

نائب العميد للشؤون الأكاديمية

so it's a big problem , and there is a solution that is :

remove the Rule of that rewriting ,,

<rewrite url="~/Pages/(.+)" to="~/ShowPages.aspx?Page=$1" />

then open your Global.asax file and Application_BeginRequest method exactly

use the following code to handle you request

void Application_BeginRequest(object sender, EventArgs e)
if (HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.ToString().Contains("/Pages/"))
	String[] txt= Regex.Split(HttpContext.Current.Request.Url.ToString(), @"/");
	String page = txt[txt.Length-1];

AD FS 2.0 in Identity Solutions: Using Active Directory Federation Services 2.0 in Identity Solution


This article explains how you can use Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) 2.0 to claims-enable Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) services and browser-based applications. The focus is on the token issuance functionality in AD FS 2.0. You'll find out how to use AD FS 2.0 as an identity provider; set up an AD FS 2.0 security token service (STS) to interact with WCF; federate AD FS 2.0 with your custom STS or another AD FS 2.0; enable Web single sign-on and federation with WS-Federation and SAML 2.0 protocols; and externalize authentication logic through Visual Studio. You'll come away appreciating how AD FS 2.0 and Windows Identity Foundation make programming identity solutions in Windows less of a chore.

SharePoint's Sandbox: Developing, Deploying and Monitoring Sandboxed Solutions in SharePoint 2010


The challenge in SharePoint development has always been the balance between creating and deploying solutions that you can trust not to damage or impair a SharePoint farm. A new feature in SharePoint 2010, called Sandboxed Solutions, enables farm administrators to feel comfortable that the SharePoint farm is safe, gives site collection administrators the authority to manage applications in their site collection, and provides developers with the flexibility to create solutions they know will be deployed in a safe and rapid manner.

Timers: Comparing the Timer Classes in the .NET Framework Class Library


Timers often play an important role in both client applications and server-based components (including Windows services). Writing effective timer-driven managed code requires a clear understanding of program flow and the subtleties of the .NET threading model. The .NET Framework Class Library provides three different timer classes: System.Windows.Forms.Timer, System.Timers.Timer, and System.Threading.Timer. Each of these classes has been designed and optimized for use in different situations. This article examines the three timer classes and helps you gain an understanding of how and when each class should be used.

Is your code running in a SharePoint Sandbox?


You could execute a function call that is not allowed in the sandbox (for example call a static method on SPSecurity) and catch the exception. A better approach is to test the friendly name of you app domain:

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.FriendlyName returns "Sandboxed Code Execution Partially Trusted Asp.net AppDomain"

Because you can never be sure that this string changes in the future, a safer approach will be:
