Multiple Applications with Similar UIs

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 27, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

My company is getting ready to update several applications. Two of the applications share some common functionality. One of them is a WinForms project for in-house and the other is public facing for our customers. Both of the apps support event entry (an "event" is one of our business objects) in the exact same way.

The event entry process is very complex, with lots of validation, enabling and disabling, visibility toggling, etc. Initially, the apps were developed at different times without knowing that this shared functionality would occur which lead to a lot of code duplication and a synchronization nightmare.

Going forward, I would like to choose a model that fixes this problem. I would like to have a common class (or classes) that handle ALL of the logic in one place. For the most part, we've had the UI handle the "simple" validation (required fields, valid values, etc.) and how to display the form (visibility, enabling, etc.). We then had the "complex" validation handled by our business logic layer. Personally, I thought that the display handling should have been performed at the BLL since the changing of one property affected the display of others, but that seems like it would have required me to "hook" it into the UI (e.g., UI provides reference to its controls to BLL or BLL says whatever co

Setting accessibility mode for multiple web applications


We have a SharePoint farm consisting of 5 web applications. These are tied together through branding and a custom sitemapprovider which present the farm as a single environment to end users. Our visually disabled users however have to enable the accessibility mode for each web application. Which is a nuisance, ideally they would only have to enable once for the complete farm. Does anybody have a solution for this problem.

How to create an activity that allows multiple exit paths similar to FlowSwitch and FlowDecision

There have been several threads around this type of request but none have provided a definitive outcome for my requirements:I am looking to emulate the FlowSwitch or FlowDecision in a custom activity so as to simplify end user workflow authoring in a rehosted environment.Currenty I am limited to linking my custom activity to a FlowSwitch or FlowDecision to allow for simple logic to be visually composed. This creates additional complexity that I am trying to avoid.I understand that these are sealed types and even the abstract FlowNode base class of these types does not have any overridable types by design as WF 4.0 favours composition over inheritance.What options do I have to accomplish my objective?If activity composition is the response to my question then could I kindly request that some samples or links to samples are provided?

Web Application Deployment with Multiple Web Applications.

I have a website that I would like to deploy. In that website, there are a few class libraries, main web application, and other child web applications. so it's like this. lib1 lib2 main app sub app sub app ...   Each sub app's are separate project and each are virtual directory applications under the main application. I followed these two links below to teach myself and kind of got a idea that I have to create each Web Deployment Project for each web applications. MSDN site briefly talks about how I should use msbuild <ItemGroup> tag to merge the multiple applications together, but doesn't give me enough clue on which deployment project I should write this (prob. main?) or how I can translate the nested IIS structure, etc.  I read about msbuild but I still have no clue.  Each deployment projects deploy successfully without the nesting relationship though.  e.g. I can deploy mailApp.vbproj_deploy and subApp.vbproj_deploy separately and appears under IIS fine. But that's not what I really would like to do.. Could someone tell me how I could possibly achieve this?  Any help would be appreciated.    http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/archive/2005/11/06/429723.aspx http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa479568.aspx  

how to manage multiple asp.net applications on one hosting with subdomains ?



thanks for your time and attention.

I want to deploy multiple asp.net applications on same hosting with subdomains. How it should be manged ?

I just created a subdomain and deploy application in its folder; when I tried to access application with subdomain it shows the following error:

An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine.

Pleae guide me.



Multiple SharePoint 2010 web applications as relying parties of a custom IP-STS


Hi everybody,

The challenge I'm facing is that I've set up a small farm for a client and the solution consists of three web applications (mainly scalability). What I primarily want to achieve is single sign-on (for authenticating users accessing the site) between the web applications, using FBA. I haven't found a single source indicating that merely using forms login is the way to achieve SSO in SP 2010. Rather, everything points to using a STS.

We might end up using ADFS 2 but for now I've built a custom IP-STS, based on Starter STS. The problems that have arisen are related to establishing trust between SharePoint and the STS. Of course I've configured a SPTrustedIdentityTokenIssuer with the proper certs and so on. As far as I can tell, I get redirected to the STS login form, get authenticated properly and redirected back to the calling RP.

What happens next is that if I have multiple RP:s configured (that is, one default realm and one provider realm) in the token issuer, upon redirection back to the calling RP the browser is stuck in an endless redirection loop. I've tried to use Fiddle to determine the "end points" of the loop and it seems to be a chain consisting of /_trust_layouts/authenticate.aspx and /_trust/default. It's worth noting that authenticate.aspx seems

Multiple User Profiles Service Applications


We are trying to split our MySite users into two different groups due to their physical location. First group will be at Location A and their profiles will be in their local SQL box, second group will be at Location B and their profiles will be in their local SQL box. Two locations are connected by a VPN tunnel.

So we created two MySite hosts, Audience groups, and added Trusted Host Locations. Then we realized that on top of existing User Profile Service Application A (used for Location A) we needed another User Profile Service Application B for a second location (Location B). After creating second User Profile Service Application we went to Configure Synchronization Connections but everytime we clicked on Create New Connection we got the following error:

"Cannot navigate to the requested page because User Profile Synchronization service is not running. Please start the User Profile Synchronization service before creating a connection."

But if we try to add connection to the the existing User Profile Service Application A it works fine. We triple checked that service in question is running. We did notice that User Profile Service Application A is running Profile Synchronization Instance on

Authenticating users across multiple farm applications - Reverse Proxy?



Here's the scenario - a customer has multiple SharePoint applications, all using Windows authentication, co-existing in a single farm. Domain accounts were created in the self-contained SharePoint domain for thousands of external users across lots of different outside companies.

URL names for the applications are in the format:


i.e. they are all in the same internet facing domain.

These external users access different applications in the farm (there are links in each app to the apps), and need to logon multiple times - once for each app. The customer would like to implement a solution that allows them to keep the apps separate, but allow the users to login once. Since the applications were developed by different companies, and to keep things simple, a solution that is transparent the various applications would be preferable.

Additionally, when these external users change their passwords or access documents via Word, Excel, there are often access issues and lots of additional password prompts, causing an administrative nightmare. User accounts number in the tens of thousands, so support requests pile up fast.

I've seen people discussing similar (but not identical scenarios) where the solution involved a "secure reverse proxy" (Such as Micros

How to best organize multiple WebProjects that use similar business logic


We have the following setup

Current Solution:

  • Business Logic (Class Library)

  • Data Layer (Class Library containing EF,Web Services wrappers etc)

  • WebProject1

BUT we now require a new Web Project which would be almost identical to WebProject1 except for the fact that it would alter properties and input variables to functions/voids inside the Business Logic class to provide a different set of data for another completely different user. Think of Facebook as WebProject1 and Myspace as WebProject2. Same concept, same business layer almost but different products altogether.

Future Soltion

  • Business Logic (Class Library)

  • Data Layer (Class Library containing EF,Web Services wrappers etc)

  • WebProject1

  • WebProject2 (similar to WebProject1 but different authentication, different UI, different pages etc)

  • WebProject3 (possible)

Without completely destroying the Business Logic (as the class would now have to allow for 2 paths per set of input variables) how can we structure this to aviod doubling up on any code?

The delima is:

Should we maintain two Business Logic class libraries? Should we add preffixe

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Business Modelling and Web Applications and extending UML

UML can be used to model a business, prior to automating it with computers. The same basic UML syntax is used, however, a number of new symbols are added, in order to make the diagrams more relevant to the business process world. A commonly-used set of these symbols is available in current versions of Rational Rose.

Building Layered Web Applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0 - Part 1

"Building Layered Web Applications" that shows you how to build N-Layer applications with Microsoft ASP.NET 2.0. These articles teach you how to design, build and use custom business objects in your web application. The target audience for this series are developers that are ready to make the switch from using SqlDataSource controls to ObjectDataSource controls with custom business objects. Experience with ASP.NET 2 and C# is necessary while some knowledge about object oriented design certainly helps. The design I am going to show you in these articles is a simplified version of a design you would use in a real world application. It doesn't feature all the necessary functionality your application needs, but instead focuses on the underlying concepts.
