  • Free NUnitAddin Shares!

    For a (hopefully) limited time only, shares in NUnitAddin are selling for $0.00!  I probably shouldn't be telling you this, but if you want some free stock you can pick it up here.  You never know, one day it might be worth something.

  • CodeSmith Beta 6 Released (w/VS.NET 2003 Support)

    Beta 6 has been posted. Here are the changes in this build:
    * Fixed bug where CodeSmith Explorer context menu was shown for node types other than templates.
    * Added ability to specify the application used to edit templates. Can be changed in the "RedRiver.CodeSmith.Gui.dll.config" (key "codetemplateexplorercontrol.editapplication") file.
    * Fixed various bugs in SqlCodeTemplate.cs.
    * Changed expiration to 7/1/2003.
    * Seperated the VS.NET addin and custom tool into seperate assemblies. This should allow the custom tool to run in VS.NET 2002 and 2003.
    * Changed ColumnSchema.DataType and ParameterSchema.DataType to DbType instead of SqlDbType.
    * Fix bug with ColumnSchema.IsPrimaryKeyMember when no primary key exists.

    This build doesn't have a lot of big changes because we are currently very busy at work. It is mostly to change the expiration date and also provide a build that works with VS.NET 2003

  • Recommended Utilities

    The focus of these blogs (.NETWeblogs) is of course on .NET. When you have a second, why not share/demo some piece of code you use often or an approach to a common problem you have solved?

  • Extensible .NET SQL code generator

    One of the cool things about Microsoft is that there's a boatload of smart people in it.  More to the point, many of those smart people are building wicked cool pieces of software that are available to you for free (and in many cases, with source code included!).  So, here's your link to one of Microsoft's better-kept secrets (we're working on changing that):  OLYMARS (the interesting name comes from a shortened version of the creator's favorite soccer/football team, Olympique de Marseilles).  What is so special about this utility?  Well, to put it simply, it's a SQL Server .NET code generator.  And not just some cheezy tossed-together thing, this one has several superb charactaristics:
