ASP.NET 4 Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: What’s New in WCF Data Services

clock June 16, 2010 09:43 by author Jervis

This topic contains brief information about What’s New in WCF Data Services. If you looking for ASP.NET 4 hosting, you can always consider ASPHostPortal. At ASPHostPortal you can get a professional ASP.NET 4 installation with your ASP.NET 4 Hosting account. You can always start from our Portal ONE hosting plan (from @$5.00/month) to get this application installed on your website. So, why wait longer?

The following new Open Data Protocol (OData) version 2.0 functionality is supported in this release of WCF Data Services:

Counting entities in an entity set

A new $count path segment enables you to receive only the total number of resources returned by a URI. A new $inlinecount query option enables you to receive the same total resource count together with the resource data in a single response.

The .NET Framework client library has been updated to enable you to access this row count information in a query response in your application.

Query Projections

Query results can now be modified to include only a subset of properties by using the new $select query option.

The .NET Framework client library has been updated to support projection by using the select clause (Select in Visual Basic) in a LINQ query.

Partial Entity Sets

A data service can now return a partial list of the entities requested by a URI, together with a URI that is used to obtain the next set of entities in the result. The new $skiptoken query option is used to request the next page of results.

The following functionality is new in this release of WCF Data Services:

Server-driven paging

A data service can now be configured to return requested resources as a set of paged responses.

The .NET Framework client library has been updated to enable you to handle paged responses.

Data binding

A new DataServiceCollection class provides simplified binding of data service data to Windows Presentation Framework (WPF) controls. This class inherits from the ObservableCollection class to automatically update bound data when there are changes to data in bound controls.

Streaming of binary resources

An entity can be defined as media link entry, with a link to an associated media resource. This enables you to retrieve and save binary large object data independent of the entity to which it belongs. You can create a data service that returns binary property data as a stream instead of first loading the entire entity, including binary data, into memory. Do this by implementing the IDataServiceStreamProvider interface.

The .NET Framework client library has been updated to allow you to get and set binary properties as a data stream.

Custom data service providers

By implementing a set of new data service provider interfaces, you can use various types of data with a data service, even when the data model changes during execution.

ASP.NET 4 Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: What's New in Windows Workflow Foundation

clock June 7, 2010 06:33 by author Jervis

This topic contains brief information about Windows Workflow Foundation. If you looking for ASP.NET 4 hosting, you can always consider ASPHostPortal. At ASPHostPortal you can get a professional ASP.NET 4 installation with your ASP.NET 4 Hosting account. You can always start from our Portal ONE hosting plan (from @$5.00/month) to get this application installed on your website. So, why wait longer?

Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) in .NET Framework version 4 changes several development paradigms from previous versions. Workflows are now easier to create, execute, and maintain, and implement a host of new functionality.

Workflow Activity Model

The activity is now the base unit of creating a workflow, rather than using the SequentialWorkflowActivity or StatemachineWorkflowActivity classes. The Activity class provides the base abstraction of workflow behavior. Activity authors can then implement either CodeActivity for basic custom activity functionality, or NativeActivity for custom activity functionality that uses the breadth of the runtime. Activity is a class used by activity authors to express new behaviors declaratively in terms of other NativeActivity, CodeActivity, AsyncCodeActivity, or DynamicActivity objects, whether they are custom-developed or included in the .NET Framework 4 Built-In Activity Library.

Rich Composite Activity Options

Flowchart is a powerful new control flow activity that allows authors to model arbitrary loops and conditional branching. Flowchart provides an event-driven programming model that was previously only able to be implemented with StateMachineWorkflowActivity. Procedural workflows benefit from new flow-control activities that model traditional flow-control structures, such as TryCatch and Switch.

Expanded Built-In Activity Library

New features of the activity library include:

- New flow control activities, such as, DoWhile, Pick, TryCatch, ForEach, Switch, and ParallelForEach.

- Activities for manipulating member data, such as Assign and collection activities such as AddToCollection.

- Activities for controlling transactions, such as TransactionScope and Compensate.

- New messaging activities such as SendContent and ReceiveReply.

Explicit Activity Data Model

.NET Framework 4 includes new options for storing or moving data. Data can be stored in an activity using Variable. When moving data in and out of an activity, specialized argument types are used to determine which direction data is moving. These types are InArgument, InOutArgument, and OutArgument.

Enhanced Hosting, Persistence, and Tracking Options

.NET Framework 4 contains persistence enhancements such as the following:

- There are more options for running workflows, including WorkflowServiceHost, WorkflowApplication, and WorkflowInvoker.

- Workflow state data can be explicitly persisted using the Persist activity.

- A host can persist an ActivityInstance without unloading it.

- A workflow can specify no-persist zones while working with data that cannot be persisted, so that persistence is postponed until the no-persist zone exits.

- Transactions can be flowed into a workflow using TransactionScope.

- Tracking is more easily accomplished using TrackingParticipant.

- Tracking to the system event log is provided using EtwTrackingParticipant.

- Resuming a pending workflow is now managed using a Bookmark object.

ASP.NET 4 Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: .NET Framework 4.0 a Parallel Programming-Initiative

clock June 5, 2010 08:18 by author Jervis

This topic contains brief information about Visual Basic 2010. If you looking for ASP.NET 4 hosting, you can always consider ASPHostPortal. At ASPHostPortal you can get a professional ASP.NET 4 installation with your ASP.NET 4 Hosting account. You can always start from our Portal ONE hosting plan (from @$5.00/month) to get this application installed on your website. So, why wait longer?

If you're an avid .NET programmer, you are likely aware of what the above title says. Since the birth of multi-core computing, there has been a need for parallel-programming architecture. Now, the multi-core computing has become the prevailing paradigm in computer architecture due to the invention of multi core-processors. By the way, almost every programmer considers Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 as getting remote and out of the way. To avert its programming market fiasco, recently, Microsoft released the beta versions of .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010. The main focus fell on .NET 4, yet the labels boasted the advent of parallel-programming. The question is whether there are any advantages (more specifically towards performance) on sticking to existing APIs? This article attempts to briefly answer the question.

.NET 4's Multi-Core processing ability: First of all, the MSDN site shows that the parallel extensions in the .NET 4 , has been improved to support parallel programming, targeting multi-core computing or distributed computing. The support for the Framework has been categorized into four areas like library, LINQ, data structures and diagonastic tools. .NET 4's peers and predecessors lacked the multi-core operable ability. The main criteria like communication and synchronization of sub-tasks were considered as the biggest obstacles in getting a good parallel program performance. But .NET 4's promising parallel library technology enables developers to define simultaneous, asynchronous tasks without having to work with threads, locks, or the thread pool.

Full support for multiple programming languages and compilers: Apart from VB & C# languages, .NET 4 establishes full support for programming languages like Ironpython, Ironruby, F# and other similar .NET compilers. Unlike 3.5, it encompasses both functional-programming and imperative object-oriented programming.

Dynamic language runtime: Addition of the dynamic language runtime (DLR) is a boon to .NET beginners. Using this new DLR runtime environment, developers can add a set of services for dynamic languages to the CLR. In addition to that, the DLR makes it simpler to develop dynamic languages and to add dynamic features to statically typed languages. A new System Dynamic name space has been added to the .NET Framework on supporting the DLR and several new classes supporting the .NET Framework infrastructure are added to the System Runtime Compiler Services.

Anyway, the new DLR provides the following advantages to developers: Developers can use rapid feedback loop which lets them enter various statements and execute them to see the results almost immediately. Support for both top-down and more traditional bottom-up development. For instance, when a developer uses a top-down approach, he can call-out functions that are not yet implemented and then add them when needed. Easier refactoring and code modifications (Developers do not have to change static type declarations throughout the code)

Parallel-diagnostics: Unlike Visual Studio 2008, the new Visual Studio 2010 supports debugging and profiling, extensively. The new profiling tools provides various data views which displays graphical, tabular and numerical information about how a parallel or multiple-threaded application interacts with itself and with other programs. The results enable developers to quickly identify areas of concern, and helps in navigating from points on the displays to call stacks & source codes. If you think only parallel programming abilities and promising capabilities make the MS .NET 4.0 a more promising next generation programming tool, think again! That's not all. There are also a number of enhancements to the Base Libraries for things like collections, reflection, data structures, handling, threading and lots of new features for the web.
