Is It Wise To Mix MVC Development And Web Form Development In The Same Group Of Products?

Oct 20, 2010

We have a largely web form team (With some Oracle developers thrown in).

Question 1:

Is it a good idea to start using MVC which will mean redevelopment of a number of standard controls for not much benefit.

Question 2:

Is it a good idea to hire developers where there most recent skills are with MVC?

I doubt there is any benefit adopting MVC now, given the 100+ applications in this suite of products, and the maintenance/rework this will cause. Given this, is there any particular reason to hire MVC developers, as they won't be hitting the ground running, which is what I need now.

Caching In Development Server?

Jan 15, 2010


I am using visual studio 2005 on windows xp sp3. The website is stored on file system. I used subversion to checkout the code from the server.

Here is the issue:

When I run the application for the first time everything is fine. But when I makes changes in the application then I should just be able to see those changes by reloading the page in browser. But it's not happening. I have to stop the development server and re-run the application which will start a new instance of development server and now I can see the changes. This takes like 3-4 minutes and it's a lot of waste of time which I can't afford.

For my fellow developer who is here for a long time everything is just working fine. He can just modify the page and reload the page in browser to see the changes.

Reading some forums on web, I tried to clear the cache of my browser (IE, Firefox) and it's not working. So, it's not a browser's cache issue. It's related to cache in development server.

C# - Development Environment For ASP With EpiServer

Jan 8, 2010

At our company we are going to develop more for the Windows platform than we have done up until now. As this scale of Windows development is new to us it would be nice with some feedback from experienced developers. Requirements we have: 5 developers from the beginning. 15 developers a year from now. All developers should be able to develop at the same time. Be able to develop solution for ASP.NET and EpiServer 5. Our idea:

A shared server which developers use for development through Terminal Services. SQL Server Express. Start with some free express edition of Visual Studio, upgrade to a commercial version if we need the additional features. Use IIS and not the web server built into Visual Studio. Questions:

Are we on the right track?

In terms of license costs the above should be cheapest, right?

What do you think about multiple developers doing development using a shared TS-server?

Do you know of any company which has a similar development environment?

Are we going to miss some features of the full Visual Studio version immediately? Is using Express version a bad choice? Is IIS the best choice? If use IIS the developers may use the same port for deployment. If we use the built in web server each one has to set their own port as we're sharing a machine.

Comment answer:
We are thinking about a shared server as it will most likely decrease the license costs. So it's purely a cost issue. We are using CVS for version control. Our situation is that we develop on Mac and Linux, that's why buying 1 server license + Visual Studio licenses seems to be a cost effective way of starting this type of development.

My dev team and I would like to setup a development environment for our ASP.NET projects. BY development environment i do not mean Visual Studio.

Where the developers all work on there parts of ASP.NET Applications and then we can push our new changes up to test them as a whole. My Question is , what is the best way to deploy our code together without stepping on our toes?

ASP / URL Rewriting In Development Environment

Jan 15, 2010

This is a general question about dealing with URL Rewriting in a development environment. I'm developing a CMS to learn ASP.NET/C#, and I will of course need to implement URL Rewriting. This technique is known to me since I've been using with PHP for several years. However in PHP, you can have a local HTTP server, modify the PHP content directly, refresh the page and see the results. Of course in ASP.NET it's not exactly the same, since you need to compile and then publish the code. The problem I have is that I need to check the URL Rewriting-friendly links my code will generate in my development environment - basically, make the ASP.NET Development Server compatible with URL Rewrite. Or maybe not. My question really is: what is the best solution to do that? Use IIS/Apache2 (w/ Mono) for the development server?

Setting Up Development Environment For ASP MVC

Jan 19, 2010

I'm from PHP background. I used to use Apache, MySQL and PHP for web development. I'm just starting mvc. I've Visual Studio 2008 Pro SP1 & .NET 3.5 SP1 already installed on my computer. So, I installed ASP.NET MVC 1.0 Created a "ASP.NET MVC Web Application" project when I hit F5 it gives error Unable to connect to the ASP.NET Development Server No wonder. In this process I didn't setup the webserver. Can I use apache here? I guess IIS is the default. Where is it? How do I configure it? What is the WebRoot directory for IIS server? Where can I find it? On searching for "Unable to connect to the ASP.NET Development Server" I found this solution:

Step 1: Select the "Tools->External Tools" menu option in VS or Visual Web

Developer. This will allow you to configure and add new menu items to your Tools menu.

Step 2: Click the "Add" button to add a new external tool menu item. Name it "WebServer on Port 8010" (or anything else you want).

Step 3: For the "Command" textbox setting enter this value: C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727WebDev.WebServer.EXE (note: this points to the web-server that VS usually automatically runs).

Step 4: For the "Arguments" textbox setting enter this value: /port:8010 /path:$(ProjectDir) (or any port you like)

Step 5: Select the "Use Output Window" checkbox (this will prevent the command-shell window from popping up. Once you hit apply and ok you will now have a new menu item in your "Tools" menu called "WebServer on Port8010". You can now select any web project in your solution and then choose this menu option to launch a web-server that has a root site on port 8010 (or whatever other port you want) for the project. You can then connect to this site in a browser by simply saying [URL] All root based references will work fine.

Step 6: The last step is to configure your web project to automatically reference this web-server when you run or debug a site instead of launching the built-in web-server itself. To-do this, select your web-project in the solution explorer, right click and select "property pages". Select the "start options" setting on the left, and under server change the radio button value from the default (which is use built-in webserver) to instead be "Use custom server". Then set theBase URL value to be: [URL] But there is no C:WINDOWSMicrosoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727WebDev.WebServer.EXE such file on my system. Did I forget to install something?


I'm using Windows XP SP2 and logged in as a user with Administrative previlages. from this [URL]

Disable IPv6


Make sure there isnt an edit in the hosts file for localhost There is no single entry in my hosts file (%SystemRoot%system32driversetchosts) with 'localhost' in it. Check firewall/virus settings to allow connections to/from devenv.exe I tried by disabling the firewall/antivirus If you can preview in the browser make sure the URL in the browser uses the same port number as the port number shown in the ASP.NET dev server taskbar icon. No, Actually there is no such dev server taskbar icon. Try setting a fixed, predefined port in project properties Tried it. But no positive result. S


After trying everything. I came to conclusion that WebDev.WebServer.exe may be corrupt. So, I've replaced C:Program FilesCommon Filesmicrosoft sharedDevServer9.0WebDev.WebServer.EXE with a fresh copy : [URL]

MVC2 Development Without Doing Enough Research About The EF4?

Sep 30, 2010

have starting doing a lot of MVC2 development without doing enough research about the EF4. This lead me to a path which I am not happy with. The way that I laid out my project is that my Models are all ADO.NET Entity Framework Models. Each model is representing database able. Today, I attempted to do a LINQ join on entities which belong to two different data contexts. This resulted in a nasty LINQ error telling me that it can't be done. I hate the fact that the only viable way to use the EF seems to create large models.
