.NET Framework version... (2)

Published 12/12/2005 by Henry in ASP.NET

I found a tool that does all the stuff I wrote about in this article. I think this is a helpful tool even if in version 2005 of Visual Studio Microsoft added something similar. I work on a project were no Visual Studio 2005 or Framework 2.0 is available and I use the tool a lot.

Here you can find the tool I talk about http://www.denisbauer.com/NETTools/ASPNETVersionSwitcher.aspx, it is called: Version Switcher.

The so-called "Interim community drop" of Enterprise Library for .NET Framework 2.0 is available, although not a official release, it includes the long-awaited configuration tool. What makes the Enterprise Library useful is among other things the Configuration Tool. So now it is possible to try the .Net Framework 2.0 version of the enterprise Library.  
The Cryptography Application Block is the only block that is not quite ready, the other blocks should be 99% ready.

It can be found at: GotDotNet and at Tom Hollander,s blog:
The configuration tool can be found in \src\Configuration\Console, by the way.

The November Community Technology Preview of the Enterprise Library for .NET Framework 2.0 is released.
The Enterprise Library (CTP)  has been redesigned to take advantage of key new features in the .NET Framework 2.0, and also includes various new features and enhancements.
More information can be found in this area of the Patterns & Practices area of Microsoft's website.

The final release of Enterprise Library for .NET Framework 2.0 is expected to be in December 2005.

The application blocks that comprise the Enterprise Library for .NET Framework 2.0 are the following:

  • Caching Application Block.
  • Data Access Application Block.
  • Exception Handling Application Block.
  • Logging Application Block.
  • Security Application Block.


In addition, the Enterprise Library Core provides services such as instrumentation and configuration, and is a shared dependency of all Enterprise Library application blocks.
Developers who are familiair with the Enterprise Library will have noticed that the Configuration Application Block no longer is a part of the Enterprise Library. Most of the configuration functionality supported by the old block is now provided by the System.Configuration namespace in .NET Framework 2.0. All Enterprise Library application blocks now leverage this functionality. The Enterprise Library core still includes some helper classes for configuration, as well as the configuration design-time components and tool.

Deployment in low-rights environments
All Enterprise Library application blocks are instrumented with performance counters, WMI and event logs, as was the case in previous releases. By default, all instrumentation is disabled and the application blocks can now be deployed using XCOPY in low-rights environments such as ASP.NET.

The Enterprise Library Configuration Console is not available in the November 2005 CTP release. To change an application’s configuration, one has to edit its XML configuration file.
