  • Blog Post: What happened to SSDS PUT/POST responses?

    Since the rollout I've seen at least one or two messages regarding the altered responses we're now sending with the REST head of the service.  There are several reasons why we've changed the service to now not return the entity body back to you again.  These are as follows: Version - Prior...
  • Blog Post: Check out the SSDS coverage in the latest issue of MSDN magazine.

    Hey all, If you have a subscription to MSDN magazine, heck even if you don't, you read a bit more about using SSDS in the latest issue. If you don't have a subscription then you can still read the article on-line here . Enjoy!
  • Blog Post: Optimistic Concurrency with SOAP in SSDS

    In my last post I described how ETag's can be used in the upcoming sprint 3 version of SSDS. In this post I'd like to talk about how this same functionality is exposed through our SOAP service head. In many ways designing this particular feature for the REST head was much easier than for the SOAP...
  • Blog Post: ETag's, Optimistic Concurrency and SSDS

    I've been kind of quiet the last month or so but that's because I've been totally heads down implementing some major features for this sprint in SSDS.  Our next release to production, which should be in the next few weeks,  is coming up fast so I thought over the next few posts to the blog...
  • Blog Post: Speaking at TechEd

    I'm heading down to Orlando in a couple of weeks to give a talk about best practices when it comes to SSDS. I'm working on my talk outline and was curious if there were any topics in particular that the community wanted to hear about in the talk? Thoughts?
  • Blog Post: Good overview of using threads for multi container query in SSDS

  • Blog Post: cURL'ing up with SQL Server Data Services

    We've begun working with some external customers (and a considerable number of internal ones) on the project and one of the first requests that came up was regarding the use of cURL. cURL , as many of you already know, is a pretty cool command line utility which can be used to issue HTTP requests. However...

    You can watch a good interview with Istvan and Nigel over on Channel 9.   The talk covers some of the interesting architecture, security and other topics.  Well worth the watch!
  • Blog Post: Interacting with SQL Server Data Services using SOAP

    In one of my prior posts I promised some SOAP examples to better illustrate how you can use SOAP to interact with SSDS.  Therefore, to honor that I've decided to write some up some examples of using SOAP with SSDS. Setting Scope In the SOAP client we really don't have the luxury of being able to...
  • Blog Post: What questions do you have about SQL Server Data Services?

    So, I've written several posts now around coding (in C# and in Java) about using SSDS. So, I'm a bit curious if anyone out there has specific questions that either I (or others on team) might be able to answer. This could be code related, design related, etc. So, what questions do you have? ...
  • Blog Post: SQL Server Data Services Meet Java

    In my last post I covered a simple example of querying SSDS using C#, HttpWebRequest and XLinq. Today, I thought I'd try to use another language (one we at Microsoft didn't have a hand in creating) Java. As I did in my last post I'm going to start with a little bit of infrastructure. It's worth noting...

    Since my last post (just after we released the service) several others have written some really great stuff on SSDS. I've listed these below for reference. Overview of the ACE model from Ryan SSDS Query Syntax (also from Ryan) However, most of the content has been focused on either conceptual...

    I'm writing this from Gate D26 at the Las Vegas airport waiting to catch a flight back to Seattle. It's been a crazy week here at MIX but an exciting one!
