Just getting started and I'm stuck on 404's

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Win 7 64-bit.  VS2010 SP1.  I have plenty of experience programming but I'm just getting into web stuff.


I started out looking at the music store tutorial on here and I'm stuck.  The hello, world example is giving me a 404 no matter what I try.  I can't find any logs that tell me what's going on.


IIS is installed and operational, the 404 page is *NOT* coming from it.  The ASP.NET development server shows up in the icons like it's supposed to, the port number it says it's on matches the port number in the URL.


I figure it must somehow be a configuration issue but I see nothing to set or examine.

Getting Started with Windows SharePoint Services

Of all of the capabilities of SharePoint, I thought I would start with the most basic installation - as a corporate intranet. It is likely that we will need to discuss some of the elements of SharePoint as we go along, so this also gives us the opportunity to review these elements for future reference.

Before going into too much detail, I would like to point out that you can try the core SharePoint framework (known as Windows SharePoint Services or WSS) for free. On Microsoft's Web site you can download a trial version of Virtual PC 2004 (VPC). Using VPC, you can install the Windows 2003 Evaluation Kit and the WSS add-on. This combination will give you 45 days to evaluate the setup.

Getting Started with Windows Communication Foundation

Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a unified framework for rapidly building service-oriented applications that makes it easy to build and consume secure, reliable, and transacted Web services. It unifies the capabilities in ASMX, WSE, Remoting, COM+, and MSMQ; therefore developers need to learn only one programming model.

Getting Started with the SharePoint Packaging Designers

Visual Studio 2010 SharePoint Tooling supports packaging of WSP files with visual designers, tool-windows and MSBuild. Here we start by introducing the designers.

The feature and package designers expose deployment concepts which are familiar to SharePoint developers. These include features, packages and SharePoint items as well as their attributes and contents. Some of them include feature scope, feature dependencies, packaged assemblies, safe-controls, class resources, and more. Additionally, the designers abstract away the more difficult concepts and provide pre-deployment validation rules to avoid common issues when deploying your solutions. The designers allow advanced users partial or full control of the feature and solution manifest files to merge or add data and view the final product.

MVC2 issue - Stuck. Trying to create a cms with nested partials


I am currently trying to display multiple items on a single page. I am not sure as to how to tackle this. What I have is a database table that has all the page data in. I have this run as a PagesController and this works fine. However what I would like to do is, if say the Products page is selected via the menu, I want to pull back not only the Products page html but also get all the products, and even be able to pull them through via category. I was trying to use a partial view, but I can't get it to work. The same would be for other pages, having partial views to display the other content, ie if Gallery is selected, the page html for Gallery shows and it then can push to a partial view that pulls all the gallery images from the gallery db table and so on. 

Maybe I am tackling this the wrong way. I have the pages stored in the db to allow for a CMS system I have setup. Maybe I need to use models for all the other items(Products, Gallery, Videos and such) and use the partial for the page html?

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am confused.

Getting Started with CI


I know I might be in the wrong section, so feel free to move my post.

Though I used TFS (for .net) and Hudson (for Java and PHP) I never set up and administered a continuous integration server.

Knowing all the benifits of such, and having some long term plans, I'd like to get my hands dirty and set up an CI environment on a spare box at home (with Win Server 2008).

However I'm unsure which direction to go.  I can get any MS software (bizspark) so TFS seems like an obvious way to go.  But have had recommendations of using SVN and other tools I cant even remember the names.

Pretty much want source control (checking code in and out), automated builds and tests to run with builds (with notification emails).

Any advice, pointers and such?

I was about to get myself a TFS book, but figured I'd ask around first a bit.
