End to End EntLib Demonstration (Source and Powerpoint presentation)

Ok, so between naps (of my 21-month-old son) and some late nights, I've managed to get the source code from my presentation last Tuesday put together.  You can downoad the source and my presentation and follow the readme.txt to get set up.  The source has examples of consuming all of the application blocks.  It also includes an example of how to integrate ASP.NET's Forms Authentication and EntLib's Authentication/Authorization block.

The example application presented and the presentation itself were both based on (ok, mostly copied from) the earlier work of some great people at Avanade - Jeff Donahoe, Kyle Burkholder, and Ben Reierson.  I'd like to thank them for their efforts to put this together - hopefully some of my additions will be useful to them as well.

Over the next few weeks, naps permitting, I'll be writing up a blog entry for each block and using this source for my explainations.  But not tonight - too much time in front of the computer and not enough time spent with the family over the last week.

Feel free to post here if you have any issues or questions.  I'll try my best to help out.



  • Thanks for the feedback - Yes, I used the eworldui calendar control in the Web project, and you'll need a copy of their controls to get the compile working.

    I've also uploaded a new copy of the solution not bound to source control.

    Moral of the story? Don't try to do complex blog posts 20 minutes before your son is going to wake up from a nap!

    Thanks again - let me know if you have any further questions.

  • The above shortcut to you source code, EntLIbCSharp.Zip, is not available. Do you plan to make an update or there is a problem with your link?


  • Strange - when I click on the link it downloads fine. Can you try right-clicking on it and doing a "save as" to make sure it's not a browser thing?


  • Thanks for the quick response. I did double-click and Save Target As but still have an error below. Do you mind to send the file to my email address: naravin.kim@eds.com? I would appreciate very much. I cannot wait to see the ASP.NET version of the samples.

    Here is the error message:

    Internet Explorer cannot download EntLibCSharp.zip from www.dotavery.com.

    Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The request site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.

  • This may seem like a stupid question. I got the solution working, but when I launch the app it keeps failing say that login for quoteuser has failed, I tried creating that user "quoteuser" but what it the password?

  • Thanks, it works now :)

  • Thanks for the props Doug! :)

    I glanced at the project and it looks like you made some nice additions (as well as some very logical refactoring). I'm glad to see we are getting this out to the community.

  • Great stuff!

    Unfortunately, I can't get the database stuff to work. Of course, I don't have everything on my workstation -- there's a separate webserver and separate development database server. I've changed connection strings in dataconfiguration.config for the DemoConnectionSQL to try out the EntLibWebCSharp project (which is loaded on the webserver), but I continue to get errors on username and password for the given accounts in the readme.

    Other suggestions?


  • Hi Doug,

    Do yo have any sample on how to us ParameterCache in Data App. block for the ASP.NET. I known there is penalty.

    Thanks very much.

  • I cannot download the source code neither from Firefox nor Mozilla. Whatever i enter into address bar i get the same error message:
    The page could not be found! The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    Is there any way to get this file?

  • the source URL is down i think
