Go Global: Localizing Dynamic Web Apps with IIS 5.0 and SQL Server

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

The success of a database-driven international Web site depends on how well the code and localized content work together with the software on the client and server. Localizing a dynamic Web site is more complicated than localizing a static one. The use of HTML and ASP code for static and dynamic content on IIS 4.0 or 5.0, coupled with Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) and SQL Server, enables Web sites to support as many languages as necessary. Choosing the right character sets and code pages, the variations in the Unicode support for IIS 4.0 and 5.0, as well as ways to avoid some common pitfalls are all discussed.

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


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.

Upgraded to SQL Server 2008 Express R2 64bit and now all my VS2010 db apps won't run

I am running WIN764bit, VS2010 and just "upgraded" from SQL server 2005 to SQL Server 2008 Express R2 64 bit.  When I went back into VS2010 and tried to run and test several database apps that I have developed, I find that I keep getting the error "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL server due to a failure in starting the process for the user instrance".  I have read a lot of threads here but I am not getting anywhere.  I can create a new SQL Server database, but can't find any of my existing .dbo connections and can't open any of the .mdf's from within Server Explorer (VS2010).  Any ideas? BTW the install went fine. And I have User Instance set to True in VS2010.

Do you need to license Office Web Apps seperate from sharepoint server 2010 enterprise license?

Hi All, I been reading this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx#bkmk_ins_exis_farm  and have come to the conculsion that if you want word viewing services and power point services you need to license and download office web apps separate from the SharePoint Licensing/download. Can anyone confirm this that may know more about the subject? I thought those services would come along with enterprise but from what I’m reading I guess not.   Regards, Jeff

Should I move ODBC Apps from the SQL Server driviver to SQL Server Native Client 10.0

I have a suite of applications written for SQL Server 2000 in Access 2000 and Access 2007 and running under Access 2007 (12.0.6423,1000 SP2 MSO 12.0.6425.1000) via ODBC with the SQL Server ODBC driver (2000.85.1132.00) under Windows XP Professional (2002 SP3).  I have maintained all the data modules in Access 2000 format so that they can be accessed by SQL Server 2008 if required and am gradully upgrading the data modules to SQL Server.  The server they are connected to is Microsoft SQL Server Standard Edition (10.0.2531.0 running on a 32-bit Wndows Server 2008 Standard (SP2).  As a security improvement I intend to move a number of the applications to the server itself.  My choice of driver for ODBC is between SQL Server (6.00.6002.18005) and SQL Server Native Client 10.0 (2007.100.2531.00).  I have yet to discover any differences in application behavior or performance between the two interfaces My assumption is that I will have have fewer problems if I configure the ODBC links using the SQL Server driver.  However, I was wondering if there is a reason to gradually move them over to the SQL Server Native Client 10.0 driver.

Moving from Client Server to Dynamic Data


I am a Visual Basic 6 Client- Server's applications developer. I have followed the first steps to create a scaffolded site. It was easy and it works fine, roughly. Dynamic data seems very powerful but it just makes me believe that it could be an excellent tool for supporting development only. Any real experience deployed with it? I understand that ASP.Net is of the disconnected type but I feel a little lost when variables are not there? How do you manage state? D.D.

How do I create a dynamic image in report server

Question 1: Is it wise to 1300 users to make use of reporter server order forms to print / view? or are better solutions?

Question 2: In a report to a dynamic image. The picture is on the Internet. http://www.domainname.com/images/12500.jpg
How can I display dynamic image in the report?
