    FAQ: VS Whidbey is not giving me <insert your favorite WS feature here>

    • 1 Comments
    Becky pointed out Simon's comment on her blog. Unfortunately the new proxy generation features didn't make it into VS for Beta 1. They're currently only accessible through wsdl.exe. So if you use Beta 1's wsdl.exe to generate a proxy class you'll get...

    How far should Whidbey go with BP conformance?

    • 34 Comments
    We plan to make services created with VS Whidbey BP 1.0 conformant by default. However, the developer has opportunities to make the service non-conformant. For example, using SOAP encoding (adding the SoapRpcServiceAttribute) would make it non conformant...

    I've been hearing a lot about iTunes recently so I decided to check it out. I have an mp3 player (not an iPod) so it was important to me to be able to download the music I buy in mp3 format. The iTunes download page had this statement: “iTunes...

    Interesting lecture

    I just viewed a recorded lect ure by Donald Knuth named God and Computer Science. It's definitely interesting content and, in many ways, thought provoking. I agree with most of his arguments except the very first one he makes. Favorite quote: “Infinity...

    WSE, ASMX and the .NET Framework

    • 7 Comments
    Last week I gave talks at two design reviews on campus. I talked about what we're doing with ASMX and WSE. Many customers were confused about what WSE was and how it relates to ASMX. So I thought it'd be useful to blog about it to help get the word out...

    Chris Brumme's blog

    • 2 Comments
    I just saw Chris Brumme's blog . Wow! Judging by the timestamps on the entries, he's either got a voice interface for dictating posts into his blog or he was sitting on a gold mine of CLR tips waiting for an outlet. I'm guessing the latter :-)

    VM Ware vs Virtual PC

    • 30 Comments
    I've installed and used both VMWare and Virtual PC on my tablet. VPC has one key advantage: It lets the guest OS use the right drivers for your hardware. VMWare installs its own drivers for things like display and network. In my case, VMWare's virtualized...
