How to turn on mex for simplified configuration WCF 4.0

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
I am trying to setup a simplified configuration file and was wondering how to enable MEX for all my services since I don't actually list any services explicitly in the simplified config file. Here is my current config file section for my services: <system.serviceModel>    <behaviors>      <serviceBehaviors>        <behavior>          <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="True" />          <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false" />        </behavior>      </serviceBehaviors>    </behaviors>    <bindings>      <basicHttpBinding>        <binding maxBufferSize="1024" />        <binding maxReceivedMessageSize="1024" />      </basicHttpBinding>    </bindings>  </system.serviceModel>

How to turn off optimistic concurrency checking?


I have run into a problem with optimistic concurrency in my dynamic data application (where all relevant settings are at their default values); when I try to update or delete one of my tables, I see the following error:

 Exception type: ChangeConflictException
 Exception message: Row not found or changed.

I am the only user of my database at the moment, so I can guarantee that the data both exists and has not been changed outside the application!

Various forums have suggested that the way to deal with this is to set the column attributes so that the concurrency checking is disabled; i.e.

[global::System.Data.Linq.Mapping.ColumnAttribute(Storage="_PropSurname", DbType="NVarChar(255)", UpdateCheck=UpdateCheck.Never)]

However, to do this manually through the Visual Studio designer will take me hours (I have a lot of tables) and if I then change the schema of one of the tables in the DB, won't I then have to do it all again?  I've tried editing the .designer.cs file directly but my changes are subsequently overwritten (as expected).

All suggestions gratefully received!

ASP.NET Configuration not opening


I recently upgraded to VS 2010 and downgraded to SQL Server 2005. Now when I go Website > ASP.NET Configuration nothing happens.

It's likely this has to do with the fact that when I was installing SQL Server I got the 'ASP.net Version Registration requirement' warning, as well as the 'Failed to find the ASP.net Version Registration requirement with MS IIS'.

Anyone know what I need to get ASP.NET Configuration working?

An endpoint configuration section for contract 'xxx' could not be loaded because more than one end



I'm trying to test calling a webservice, I've found several free ones on http://webserviceshare.com, but none of them work for me.  Some of them give example calling code in C# which I've translated to VB.NET, they're typically just two to four lines, I don't think I've translated them incorrectly.

On that I've tried is US Zip Validator.  I added a Service Reference to http://www.webservicemart.com/uszip.asmx?WSDL, called ZipService.

I then call it like so:

            Dim myZipService As ZipService.USZipSoapClient = New ZipService.USZipSoapClient()
            Dim myCity As String = myZipService.ValidateZip("27707")

I get the following error on the first line of code:

"An endpoint configuration section for contract 'ZipService.USZipSoap' could not be loaded because more than one endpoint configuration for that contract was found. Please indicate the preferred endpoint configuration section by name."
