Things you can do by piping appcmd commands

Here are some of the cool things you can do by piping appcmd commands together in IIS7. Application Pools 1.

Stop application pools with word "cheap" in it appcmd list apppool /name:"$=*cheap*" /xml | appcmd stop apppool /in 3.

Acropolis CPU\Memory Watcher

One of the cool things about acropolis is that you can define different views for the same business logic. This separation of concerns between presentation and business logic is nothing new , but the core acropolis architecture makes it much easier to do. The CPU\Memory Watcher demo is a great example of this power. And with the power of WPF, the views can be very cool... The default view is a gauge view But click on the command bar and you can change the view to a more data oriented graph view.. The other thing that is way cool about Acropolis is that while it fully expolits WPF, it is not tied to it... So you can even use the full graphics power of the command console! You can get the source code here , but a few notes about the implementation...

Toolkit 101: How the Toolkit project works

The AJAX Control Toolkit has been out there for over a year now, and we've picked up a lot of new users along the way. Recently, I've noticed more and more forum posts from folks that are just coming into the Toolkit and they don't have the benefit of being involved with it since the Atlas days. So I thought I'd put together an overview of how we run the Toolkit, and what the various ways are that people can participate, etc. The Overall Process We've build a process optimized for simplicity and mainline scenarios. For each bug fix we make, we think about things like backward compatibility - I'm hard core about breaking changes. If we do break something accidentally, we do our best to address it quickly. This is actually harder than it sounds...

Tip/Trick: Creating Packaged ASP.NET Setup Programs with VS 2005

Scenario You have built an ASP.NET Web Application using Visual Studio 2005, and want to enable customers to automatically install and deploy it on servers via an easy setup program. Specifically, you want to create a standard Windows setup program that will create and configure the application on IIS, copy all of the application’s files to the appropriate location on the server, and ensure that ASP.NET 2.0 is correctly mapped to run the application. You also want the setup program to prompt the customer for the database location that the new application should use, and have the setup program automatically update the web.config file with the database connectionstring settings the customer provided. One solution to consider using is the built...

TechEd & ReMIX

What a great couple of weeks, and it's not over yet! In the last two weeks, I've been to Orlando, Budapest, and Amsterdam, and I'm headed off to Zurich on Sunday. I've got some down time today and tomorrow before two more full days in Zurich. I've learned a lot, seen some fantastic things, and met some really great people. TechEd 2007 - Orlando I started TechEd off in Orlando a little early as some of my friends were going to be down there for a few parties and other events that were going on so I figured I'd join them. It was a great way to start the trip and great to see my friends, and meet some new folks. Kind of crazy, and a lot of fun. TechEd itself was pretty great. We got to meet lots of cool folks, and the presentations that the IE...
