This white paper explains the easy steps that require to start creating and using a simple WinFx Service. The class MyService implements the interface IMyService which contains a method MyOperation1. One implemented this method, it takes a string parameter and returns it with a Hello message.
A portion of Windows Longhorn technologies is available to early birds, who want to get their hands dirty on new stuff. WinFX is a set of next-generation managed API?s that is provided by Microsoft for Windows Longhorn platform. In 2004, Microsoft released the latest version of WinFX SDK called the Community Technology Preview Edition of the Microsoft WinFX Software Development Kit (SDK), which contains documentation, samples, command-line compilers, and tools designed to help a person develop managed applications and libraries using WinFX.
Originally available only as part of the Tablet PC SDK, digital ink is now integrated into Microsofts Windows Presentation Foundation. With the exception of handwriting recognition, Windows programmers can now leverage digital ink in their applications without additional SDKs or runtime libraries. This paper published by Mindcracker presents the Digital Ink in Windows Vista Using XAML which originally was available only as part of the Tablet PC SDK, digital ink is now integrated into Microsofts Windows Presentation Foundation. With the exception of handwriting recognition, Windows programmers can now leverage digital ink in their applications without additional SDKs or runtime libraries.
Microsoft had already started a new era of programming which swept away the programmer?s world wide mainly because of the invention of .NET and C#. This paper published by Microsoft discusses some of the key pillars of Windows Vista programming model. And now by introducing Windows Vista programming model, Microsoft has proved its seriousness and dedication to the programmers and the programming world.
Web Services has been adopted by the developers community as one of the most popular ways to build distributed applications. The Web Services adoption in some scenarios demands higher requirements. The Web Service protocols stack WS- defines protocols that address different areas in distributed applications. Routing is one of the vital requirements in distributed applications; some of the main Web Services technology providers provide routing functionality in these platforms using different WS- protocols. This paper from Mindcracker covers the content-based-routing functionality in three Web Services technologies leaders in the .NET and J2EE worlds: WSE, Indigo and WASP.
In just a few years Web Services has become the first option in distributed programming environments. Web Services has become the first option in distributed programming environments. The Web Services complexity requirements have been increased in the past years. In Enterprise applications is a common requirement to perform reliable messaging between the service provider and the service consumer. WS-ReliableMessaging (WS_RM) is a protocol that offers a solution to this problem. This paper from Mindcracker explain the WS-RM basics and shows how to use develop reliable messaging applications in Longhorn using Indigo and in J2EE using WASP.
While the operating system is monitoring the changes it also holds a log of these changes. This paper tries to improve the performance of ones existing Windows Vista codename Longhorn installation. The increase in performance is brought about by changing a few properties of the various services that come with the operating system.
This paper published by Windows Vista provides an introduction to building Windows Vista codename Longhorn applications. It discusses several new things that are available to the developers for consideration before and during the application development on Longhorn. In other words the .NET framework has been taken to the next level of integrating in to the operating system).
The paper published by MSBuild explains some code examples that illustrate the main MSBuild capacities. As part of the code name Longhorn Microsoft propose a new build system named MSBuild. MSBuild defines what are going to be build as well as how are going to be build. It also explores the main MSBuild concepts.
This paper published by Mindcracker focuses on the Dos and Don?ts when installing Longhorn on VM Ware. This paper also gives a step by step installation procedure for doing the same. One can install longhorn on laptop and yet be ensured that none of their data or operating system would be affected by longhorn. The paper is not extensive and does not cover all the possible failure scenarios.
