MEF + Factories
28 November 08 08:13 PM | mhawley | with no comments

Lately I've been really digging into MEF and have been looking at it's pros & cons, ease of use, extensibility, and the simple DI container that it can provide. I'm not going to give an overview of MEF, as others have done so already. What I am here to show off is a concept that may prove useful for some applications. Many of us use a DI container in very simplistic ways, as well as registering injection strategies during type resolution. Read more …

Plea for Help: WCF 404 Error
07 June 08 03:32 AM | mhawley | with no comments

I’m putting out a plea for help. For some odd reason, we have a WCF service (running in IIS 6) that’s using streaming and BasicHttpBinding that will return a 404 error message every time it’s called from our client. Hitting the same URL on the box itself through IE renders the WSDL just fine. If you have seen this issue, please contact me. We’ve been struggling with this issue and have yet to find a resolution. BTW, it works great on another web server that is configured the same, and we’ve looked at all of the verbose logs WCF can give us. Ultimately, we’re seeing the message being sent from the client, and a 404 in the IIS log, but nothing on the server logging. Thanks!

29 May 08 01:53 PM | mhawley | with no comments

Here's something very cool I just found in the ASP.NET MVC Preview 3 bits, you can specify, what I call, "dot" notation expressions on your view data. With the new ViewDataDictionary you can now use the "dot" notation expressions to get access the same value as using the safely typed Model. (Read More...)
