Microsoft Enterprise Library 5.0 - Logging Application Block Activation Error


Hi folks,

I've been writing a class where I wanted to write the errors off to the OS EventLog. I was pointed towards the Logging Application Block. I used LogWriter successfully in a web page and transfer the code to the class so that I could have the functionality there.

I keep getting an {"Activation error occured while trying to get instance of type LogWriter, key \"\""} Error when I reach this line of code:

private LogWriter writer = EnterpriseLibraryContainer.Current.GetInstance<LogWriter>();

I had something similar with the daab getinstance call but I added the unity assemblies to the code and this resolved this. I thought this was the issue with this problem.

Could anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance folks.

app.config code:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
        <section name="loggingConfiguration" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging.Configuration.LoggingSettings, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Logging, Version=5.0.414.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" requirePermission="true" />

Using the ConsoleTraceListener with the Enterprise Library 3.1 Logging Block


I'm new to using the Logging application block.  I think I have a pretty good handle on how things work.  However, I'm running into a problem.  I'm using the RollingFlatFileListener and I have formatted the logging template to be more like the logging we are replacing.  However, in our console apps when the ConsoleTraceListener is added it still logs it out in the default text template format.  Is there any way to get around this?  Currently it looks like I will have to create a new TraceListener called FormattedConsoleListener that allows a text formatter to be associated with it.  Is this the only way?

Data Truncation issue with Enterprise Library Logging WriteLog stored Proc

Enterprise Library 3.1 database logging


Im new in using Microsoft Enterprise Library 3.1. Im trying to run database Logging.
I added the required configuration to the web config as mentioned in MSDN library. then I ran the script to generate logging tables and stored procedures.

I changed the formatter template to keep needed data. below is sample of my code

Dim ologEntry As LogEntry = New LogEntry()
        With ologEntry
            .Severity = Diagnostics.TraceEventType.Error
            .Title = "MSEntLib3.1"
            .AppDomainName = AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory
            .ProcessName = "TestFunction()"
            .Message = "Informational message"
        End With


I faced an error that there are missing paramters then I modified writeLog stored Procedure to recieve the listed above paramaters, I test it on sql server its working fine, in my web page it doesnt rais an error and not inserting any data to the log table.

Shielding Exceptions at WCF Service Boundaries using Microsoft Enterprise Library 4.1

To enable the exception shielding feature in my WCF service I have done the following steps Added references of the following assemblies: Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.dll Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.WCF.dll Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common.dll Microsoft.Practices.ObjectBuilder2.dll Added a Using statement for Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.ExceptionHandling.WCF. Added the ExceptionShielding attribute to a service implementation class and specified the name of the exception policy to use as a constructor parameter.

Question on Microsoft Enterprise Library 5.0 for a mobile web application



Our company is in the process of building a new website dedicated for mobile devices.

Since we are starting from scratch, I would like to consider implementing the Microsoft Patterns & Practices Enterprise Library 5.0 on the site.

I would like to ask others what they think

1) Is this too much overhead where speed is mission critical?

2) Have you implemented this library for a mobile site? If so, why? Please describe your experience.

3) Given time and resources, would you implement this library?

I appreciate all feedback



Should I use Microsoft Enterprise Library


Hi everyone,

I need to know if it is advantageous to use Microsoft Enterprise Library. I'm gonna use it mainly for it's Data Access Application Blocks. My web application needs to access 3 SQL Server (only) databases, one of which for almost all database accesses and the other two at specific points of a process.

I also want to know how the enterprise library handles the connection to the database, i.e. does it automatically open and close the connection by using the DatabaseFactory.CreateDatabase method and a dataset to be filled with the results? Does it handle the multiple simultaneous database accesses?

what is the difference between using DAAB and old fashion open connection- execute command - close connection In terms of performance and load of database connections?

Thank you so much for your help in advance 

Flat File Loading Problem -> Messed Up Delimiters and Error Logging Issue

Hey Everyone,

I have a Data-Flow task embedded in a Sequence Container (does not fail component on error) on the Control Flow panel of the SSIS designer.  This data flow task contains a connection to a Flat File Source -> A Data Transformation -> Into an OLE Db Destination.

The problem is that the Flat File isn't always delimited properly -> the client cannot be relied on to do this.

My question is when the delimiters are messed up, how can I capture the offending error row(s) from the Flat File Source?

What I've tried:
1) Set every column in the source flat file on error to: Redirect Row
2) Added a Script Transformation to pull the description and the record id out of the offending row
3) Added an Error file flat file destination to the end of the flow.

The package always fails on the Flat File Source and never Redirects the offending Row to the error output - I never see my onError Script Transformation go Green, Red, or Yellow - SSIS doesn't let it get there.

I'm really new to SSIS so sorry if this is a super basic question.

Here is the Error Text:

[Source - InventTable_csv [1]] Error: The column delimiter for column "RECID" was not found.
[Source - InventTable_csv [1]] Error: An error occurred while processing file "C:\------InventTable.csv" on data row 15228.

Upload a File to a SharePoint Document Library - Part I

The following helper class demonstrates a few techniques that allow documents to be uploaded to a SharePoint document library programmatically without using the API or a custom web service. You don't need to specify a document library name, and it will create any folders specified in the URL as required. File meta data will be updated if any properties are passed.

MVC + Enterprise Library


Not a MVC specific question, but as that's what I'm doing I thought I'll post here.

While looking into the source code of an existing application, I stumbled upon MS Enterprise Library, and as I only heard about these "application block" stuff decided to look into it.

From the theory it sounds like a pretty usefull thing and it made me wonder if other's are using it succesfully along with MVC projects (I know they are not really related!)?

Pro's and Con's? 

I like the database block, as I did not get to any real database development the last 1.5 years, for instance. (Bad excuse I know).  Having an IoC thrown in there (Unity) sounds like I can pretty much stop using 3rd party libraries like I do now all over the place.

Using Enterprise Library for first time



I wan to use the enterprise library for the first time. Is there any samples, quick start guide or ebook is available for a quick start and learn the basics.

I have vs2008, so which version of EL should I use?

And if somebody can just brief about Enterprise Library. Because as per my understanding, is this a mixture of design patterns and some pre-made blocks of source code.
