Rick Strahl is the Big Kahuna and janitor at West Wind Technologies located on the beautiful island of Maui, Hawaii.
Between windsurf sessions and spikey haired adventures, Rick has been a software developer for over 25 years, developing business and Web applications since the very early days of the Web when you needed a hand crank (or a pair of wire splicers) to get online.
NET and Visual Studio can figure out from the directory structure how to display, compile, and run that project without any manual configuration or an explicit compilation step.
This project opening format is useful if you want to remotely connect to another machine, but it’s also useful for local projects that contain lots of static content that you don’t want to automatically include in your project.
For example, if you have a root Web site that has subdirectories that are in turn virtual directories, a Remote Site prevents importing all the child virtual directories, which is not the case with file projects.
I have inherited an project, which has some datasets in it.
I find that when I edit datasets with new SQL, adding columns, tableadapters etc, that the class is not regenerated, and therefore I can't access them in code.
The changes in the new project model make it quicker and easier to get a new project up and running, or to open an existing project.
You can now open a project simply by pointing at a directory and ASP.
Today Rick builds client centric Web applications and services for customers with HTML5, Java Script and mobile Web technologies, using Angular JS on the front end, and the ASP. Rick’s company West Wind Technologies also produces a number of developer related tools including West Wind Web Surge, Web Monitor and Html Help Builder.
He also maintains a host of open source libraries at Strahl and you can find Rick’s blog at weblog.or contact him directly at [email protected]’s crucial to understand how your ASP. NET 2.0’s release offers many welcome changes and additions to the ASP. Compilation and deployment has changed drastically in ASP.
Open the directory as a File Web Project in Visual Studio, click View in Browser and your page runs. But while the overall operation gets easier, the underlying model used to provide this simplicity is actually very complex and requires a lot of help from ASP. NET runtime to allow features such as individual page compilation, ensuring proper linking of “reference” assemblies, and making sure that the development environment can display accurate Intelli Sense information on all of this inferred type information that logistically wouldn’t be available until run time.
