Recently came across web2.0 and read through articles on web2.0.

what does web2.0 mean ?

in one context it means the next gen of internet, on how internet is used and users can benefit from internet.


Web 2.0 refers to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services — such as social-networking sites, wikis which aim to facilitate collaboration and sharing between users.

Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the internet as platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform

MS has released VS2008 and .Net 3.5 as Beta.

The downloads can be made from :
The VPC can be downloaded at :

downloads directly from :

From SomaSegars Blog :
The road to Beta 2 has been an exciting one for me and my team. With our focus on delivering frequent CTP’s, we really opened the door for real time feedback from the developer community, and drove the development of this product based on that feedback. With Beta 2 we are feature complete, so now is the time to have your first look if you haven’t seen Visual Studio 2008 yet, or evolve your experience if you have been using our Beta 1 or previous CTP’s. To add to this, we are also releasing a Go Live license for Visual Studio 2008, the .NET Framework 3.5, and Silverlight 1.0 to make it easier for you to start developing in our next generation of tools.

Developers can now use VS2008 and Silverlight 1.0 to build rich interactive applications for the web. With Silverlight 1.0 RC we will also be releasing a CTP for the Silverlight Add-In for Visual Studio 2008. With this add-in, developers can start building Silverlight 1.0 applications from within the Visual Studio 2008 environment and work with their designer counterparts using Expression Blend v2 preview. We expect to deliver the final version of this add-in soon after the final version of Visual Studio 2008.

IIS7 Settings for WCF hosting

IIS7.0 is much advanced than its previous verions. 40 feature modules and more advantages.

However i have captured the basic config steps which are a must for hosting WCF Servives in IIS7.0.

1.Make sure the below settings are done in IIS7.0 to host a service:
a. Open the Windows Programs features
b. Click , expand the nodes to Internet Information Services:
c. Click on the Web Management tools
d. Expand all the sub – nodes

Select the IIS6 Management Compatibility
select on all the sub items.

2.Now click on the world wide web services.

3.Expand the Security node:

5.Click on the Basic, Windows, Client Certificate Mapping, IIS Client Certificate, etc ..Except IP Security.
6.When Microsoft 3.0 is installed in the Vista machine, we will see a node like Microsoft Dotnet Framework 3.0.
7.Click on the “Microsoft .Net 3.0 Node” and expand.

8. Check on the Windows Communication Foundation HTTP Activation.
9. The above settings are pretty much enough for the settings for IIS7.0 to host a WCF Service.
10. To check if all the settings are done perfect open IIS7.0 now.
11. The below steps will help us to check if the settings from step 2 to step7 are reflected in IIS7.0.
12. Open IIS7.0 and click on the Application Pools in the left most corner.

13. In the application Pools check if there are 2 Pools in default, namely the Clasic.Net AppPool and the Default AppPool.
14. In IIS7.0 select a particular Virtual directory and check for the Properties.
15. Select the Handler Mappings:

16. Click on the Handler Mappings:
17. Check on the List of Handler Mappings , there will be a mapping for *.svc:

18. Check if the svc-ISAPI-2.0 is present.
19. The values of the SVC setting will be like:
a. Request Path = *.svc
b. Executable: %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_isapi.dll
c. Request RestrictionsàVerbsàAll Verbs.
20. Click on the Directory Settings:

21. When you do a IIS restart, have the restart done from the command prompt.

Hope the above steps will reduce 1 hr of Time to someone!!!!!!

XAML --1

XAML is the next next generation of the windows presentation for applications.

Think if XAML as a programing language where in the front end - GUI is all governed by XML tags...for each control which is added on the screen , there is an entry in the XAML file, in the XML node entry..

XAML is used as the front end GUI part and the Event Driven part of the XAML is coded in the back *.xaml.cs file..for example, if you want to create a message box which needs to be pop up on a click of a button of button. The Messagebox pop up code is written in the *.xaml.cs file.

1.Add the button to the XAML screen and you can see an entry like :

<--- --->

2. Now on the click button , we i have written the OnClick event.

3. The code which must be written for this click event must be written on the OnClick function in the XAML.Cs file.

MessageBox.Show("Senthil in XAML!!!!");

4.Just the above is not enogh , there needs to be a routedevent which needs to be created :

button2.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(Onb2Click);

public void Onb2Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)

5. Its not just the code which is written in the Clickevent , but there needs to be a RoutedEventArgs created and which is done by button2.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(Onb2Click);

[.. deep in XAML in the next posts..]

In North Carolina ---- Raleigh


XAML, is the buzz word of WPF --windows presentatin foundation ...
XAML is gaining much speed in the applications user experience..

when user experience is considered to the top priority for any application, the presentation layer is the one which needs to be considered much.

XAML is Extensible application markup language by Microsoft..
using XAML rich UI based applications can be created.
As a Dotnet developer there can be segregation of the UI layers from the midlle warfe business logics layer...
XAML consists of the UI Garphics and the mark up language for the UI. Its all XML based...
As of now, there is a big gap in combination of documents , Audio , Video which can be presented in the UI, but with the Evolution of XAML, all the 3 can be linked which gets a great user experience...

[The thirst for XMAL will continue in the next posts....]

Running ASP.Net Applications in Linux Platform

ASP.Net Applications can be made to run on Linux Platform also !!!
This can be accomplished by using MONO ..

The Mono Project is an open development initiative sponsored by Novell to develop an open source, UNIX version of the Microsoft .NET development
platform. Its objective is to enable UNIX developers to build and deploy cross-platform .NET Applications. The project implements various technologies
developed by Microsoft that have now been submitted to the ECMA for standardization.
