Thus it was with great excitement that I recently came across another one! It's called Microsoft Blueprints and is the next evolution of those Software...

Using Custom Performance Counters to measure multi-threaded operation durations

Thu, 04 Dec 2008 16:07:00 +0000

When building WCF Services it's very useful to know how long the individual operations within it's various methods are taking that are outside of the Service itself e.g. calls to other services or to databases as the question is often asked, "Why is this Service [in Production] so slow right now?" By firing up perfmon...

Wed, 15 Oct 2008 14:52:00 +0000

If you need to make more than one call to one or more web services in your code in a single request, then you can do this using multiple threads for vastly better performance.   There are three ways of solving this problem, depending upon which layer your code resides (UI, Business Layer or Data...

Terrarium is back!

"Terrarium" is a project Microsoft created with .NET 1.0 that allowed devs to write a bug or plant and have it live, fight and eat in a little digital world called Terrarium. This world connected to other instances running on other folks PC's and your bug could crawl between them and live on, even reproduce,...

Today there a bunch of new bits to play with that have up until now been a collection of individual CTP's - yes it's the first beta of Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1! This is more interesting than many betas as there a lot of new stuff in this Service Pack, not...

Enterprise Library and WCF

Mon, 12 May 2008 09:32:00 +0000

If you're creating Web Services using WCF (or ASMX, for that matter) then you are, of course, using the Web Service Software Factory to create them (right?). Well one thing the WSSF does not include is the hooks to the various blocks within the Enterprise Library that many would find useful in tier freshly-generated Web...
