Using LINQ with ASP.NET (Part 1)

One of the new things I’m super excited about right now is the LINQ family of technologies that are starting to come out (LINQ, DLINQ, XLINQ and others soon). LINQ will be fully integrated with the next release of Visual Studio (code-name: Orcas) and it will include some very cool framework and tool support (including full intellisense and designer support). Last week the LINQ team released the May CTP drop of LINQ that you can download from here . What is cool about this CTP is that it works with VS 2005, and allows you to start learning more about it immediately. It incorporates a bunch of customer feedback (for example: support for stored procedures in DLINQ), and also includes a built-in ASP.NET Web-Site Project to enable you to leverage...

Web Platform and Tools Product Management-- who we are, what we do now, and a place for you to tell us what to do

A lot has changed over the last five months for me and I wanted to tell let you all know, my reading faithful what has been going on. Then, I want to ask you to provide us with feedback about what you want us to do to make your lives easier for the next twelve months. We are in the middle of FY07 planning (Microsoft fiscal year runs July 1 à June 30 th ) where we make all of our budgeting plans and tactics for the year. In November, I took on a new role here at Microsoft. It wasn’t a big change, but instead of just being the Product Manager for ASP.NET, VWD and “Atlas,” I took on a broader team that I affectionately call Web Platform and Tools Product Management. It is probably a bit of a misnomer, but our groups charter is to ensure that Web...

Overriding "Activating" ActiveX Controls

I'm in the midst of a DHTML test pass right now (this is a separate issue from the one I previously blogged about), and I came across a rather frustrating change. In response to the patent lawsuit between Microsoft and Eolas, we released an update for IE that requires that ActiveX controls get "activated". If you've seen the dreaded “Press SPACEBAR or ENTER to activate and use this control” on an ActiveX control, you know what I'm talking about. Our test suite for the DHTML Editor is completely automated. I kicked off 9 runs this morning (ENU, DEU, ARA, JPN across XP, and Win2K3) and when the runs finished late this afternoon, there was a 40% failure rate! My "base" run had less than a 3% failure rate. WTF?!?! In any event, I found out my tests...

Hiring & Ship Stuff

I've got a good entry coming tomorrow, where I'm going to talk about the DHTML control and some changes coming in the Vista time frame. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we're pulling it from Vista, and I'll fill you in with complete details then. But in the mean time, I figured I'd post a few other things. Our team is still looking for some well qualified people for our team. The PM and Dev team is fully staffed, but we've still got openings on our test team. We need people who have test experience, and some decent coding experience. We've had a bunch of great candidates, but unfortunately, they were either missing the test skills or the coding skills. Our interviews are pretty technical, we ask coding questions that include things like coding...

VS 2005 Web Application Project V1.0 Released

I am very happy to announce that the final release of the VS 2005 Web Application Project is now available. You can download it for free here . The VS 2005 Web Application Project option provides an alternate web project model option to the VS 2005 Web Site Project Model that ships built-into VS 2005. VS 2005 Web Application Projects support the same project, build and compilation semantics as the VS 2003 web project model. Specifically: All files contained within the project are defined within a project file (as well as the assembly references and other project meta-data settings). Files under the web’s file-system root that are not defined in the project file are not considered part of the web project. All code files within the project are...
