Chat Application

Serial Communication

Figure 11: A chat application using the SerialPort class.
In .NET Compact Framework 1.1, accessing the serial ports on the device involves performing a Platform Invoke (P/Invoke) operation, which is often an arduous and error-prone process. With .NET Compact Framework 2.0, you can access serial ports using the SerialPort class.

High performance chat application


Hi there. I want to create high-perfomance chat application compatible with mobile platforms.  (It is not actually chat, but architecture is pretty similar)

My biggest concerns are: I need to update messages for everybody every 1 second. Also I need to insert very often to database.

I'm just wondering whether there is a better way than doing trips every second to database?

And also, what are the best practices on creating this kind of applications?

Save MVC Chat Room Data in Application variable or DB, where is better ?


My application is MVC Web App Chat Room , it supports following features:

1.Create/Join/Close room
2.Send message in room (just live message, offline message might be supported in future)

I have done logic for application, but I'm considering where to save chat room data (message,room information, and users in room) ? I see there are 2 options:

1. Application variable
2. Using file or database

-What if I saved in Application variable:
In case of there are 2000 rooms and 10000 users online, mean I have to persistence in Application variable (actually in RAM memory) information of 2000 rooms, more than 10000 message (text), these numbers might be increased by second if there are more users online in real time. and what's next ? I don't know what will happen to server, crash ? or my web app will be terminated ? whatever I don't want both results !

-What if I saved in file or DB (i.e: SQL Server DB)
Because of web application, clients have to send request every 1 second to fetch data (messages and user list in room). So in case of there are 2000 rooms and 10000 users online, means they will make 10000 requests every 1 second to DB. I don't know what will happen to DB, there are a lot of connections and in EVERY 1 second, can

ASP.NET chat application using Reverse Ajax or MSMQ?



I wan to integrate any one-to-one chat web application in Microsoft CRM 4.0. Searched for few samples over the ent but all are of room chat functionality with no private/one-to-one chat option.

Can we use socket programming for web based cahts?

Moreover, is it possible using reverse ajax/comet technology to push back the content to the concerned person's browser client only? or it will send back the content to all browsers? If so, what choices we have to achieve the private/one-to-one chat functionality in web based chat apps? (like MSMQ).

If you have any sample regarding this in your knowlege please provide the link.

Thank you.



Duplex workflow service, chat, IM application


I need to create service that can handle clients connections and administrator connection.The clients that connects to service are handled by Durable duplex, so the service can send commands to clients in any time when client is connected. When some client connects, the service should add its callback to clients collection. Then when administrator connects to service he should be able to send some commands to clients. I have created a workflow that is on the image below. In that workflow there is a problem because any time when the new connection is initialized the client variable is reseted to its default value. How to create static/global variable, or solve a problem in some other way?

Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) Loop

discovered an interesting error recently while working with Microsoft's Collaborative Application Markup Language (CAML) that, surprisingly, had received no ink. Partly what surprises me about this is that the error may require you to rewrite large sections of your code if you haven't previously considered this SharePoint limitation. I'll start with some context, but first of all the error is:

Integrating a Legacy Web Application in SharePoint

This month we will continue with the theme of deploying Microsoft's SharePoint as a company intranet by describing a method for integrating a legacy Web application inside a SharePoint site.

In many companies the intranet site is not just a home page with announcements. It houses Web applications used by many different departments. In last month's article, I built a page to search the employee table in Northwind (the sample database included in Microsoft's SQL Server). This month, I will move the Web pages used to add/remove records from the table into the SharePoint intranet.

MVC architecture in ASP.Net using C# and Microsoft Data Access Application block

The Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern separates the modeling of the domain, the presentation, and the actions based on user input into three separate classes [Burbeck92]:

Model. The model manages the behavior and data of the application domain, responds to requests for information about its state (usually from the view), and responds to instructions to change state (usually from the controller).

View. The view manages the display of information.

Controller. The controller interprets the mouse and keyboard inputs from the user, informing the model and/or the view to change as appropriate.

High-Performance .NET Application Development & Architecture

It has always been a goal of project architects to plan an effective strategy from the ground up in regards to an new application. All relevant factors are taken into consideration with respect to the application, from its design and layout to a functional website infrastructure. Pre-.NET strategies and design guidelines still effective now were developed with Microsoft's DNA (Distributed interNet Application) platform. This model successfully served the purpose of architecting N(any number of)-Tier (levels) applications. In its basic sense, as in most robust, distributed applications, you'll architect 3 main layers or Tiers: presentation, business rules and data access.
