Community Server Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Integrating SharePoint Server 2007 with Community Server Membership Databases

clock June 16, 2010 10:22 by author Jervis

This article describes Integrating SharePoint Server 2007 with Community Server Membership Databases. If you’re looking for Community Server and MOSS, you can always consider ASPHostPortal as the alternatives. We give our best for you.

Getting Started

Community Server uses the membership and role providers in ASP.NET. ASP.NET includes the System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider class and the System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider class. These classes communicate with an ASP.NET membership database that is usually created by using the command-line tool, aspnet_regsql.exe.

Modifying ASP.NET Web.config Files

Locate the web.config file of the SharePoint site that you want to use forms-based authentication. By default, the path of this file is the following: local_drive:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80.

Next, locate the web.config file for SharePoint Central Administration.

To locate the webconfig file for SharePoint Central Administration

1. At a command prompt, type inetmgr to launch Internet Information Services (IIS).

2. In IIS, expand the node computer_name (local computer).

3. Expand Web Sites.

4. Right-click SharePoint Central Administration, and then click Properties.

5. Click Home Directory.

6. Under Local Path, note the location of the web.config file. For example,
local_drive:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\7552.

The number, 7552 in this example, indicates the port number on which this site runs.

After locating these two web.config files, add the following XML to both files immediately after the <SharePoint> section and before the <system.web> section. If there is already a <connectionString> section, insert the <add> element contents to the existing section. The following XML example points to a database located on the local computer. The database instance runs on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (MSDE).

  <connectionStrings>

    <add name="AspNetSqlProvider" connectionString="Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS;database=CommunityServer;Trusted_Connection=True" />

  </connectionStrings>

The following example shows how to point to a database on a remote computer.

<add name="AspNetSqlProvider" connectionString="Data server=myRemoteServerName;database=

  CommunityServer;Trusted_Connection=True" />

Next, add the following XML to the <system.web> section of the web.config file of the SharePoint site.

<membership defaultProvider="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider">

      <providers>

        <remove name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" />

        <add connectionStringName="AspNetSqlProvider"

passwordAttemptWindow="10"

           enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true"

           requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" applicationName="Community_Server_application_instance"

           requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Hashed"

           description="Stores and retrieves membership data from the SQL Server database"

           name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type=

             "System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider,

           System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />

      </providers>

    </membership>

 

    <roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="AspNetSqlRoleProvider">

      <providers>

        <remove name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" />

        <add connectionStringName="AspNetSqlProvider" applicationName=" Community_Server_application_instance "

           description="Stores and retrieves role data from the local SQL Server database"

           name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" type=

             "System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider,

           System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />

      </providers>

    </roleManager>

Add the following XML to the <system.web> section of the web.config file of SharePoint Central Administration.

<membership defaultProvider="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider">

      <providers>

        <remove name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" />

        <add connectionStringName="AspNetSqlProvider" passwordAttemptWindow="10"

           enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true"

           requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" applicationName="Community_Server_application_instance"

           requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Hashed"

           description="Stores and retrieves membership data from the SQL Server database"

           name="AspNetSqlMembershipProvider" type=

             "System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider,

           System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />

      </providers>

    </membership>

 

    <roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider=

      "AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider">

      <providers>

        <remove name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" />

        <add connectionStringName="AspNetSqlProvider" applicationName="Community_Server_application_instance"

           description="Stores and retrieves roles data from the local Microsoft SQL Server database"

           name="AspNetSqlRoleProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlRoleProvider,

           System.Web, Version=2.0.3600.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=

             b03f5f7f11d50a3a" />

      </providers>

    </roleManager>

Community_Server_application_instance is the name of the Application instance for Community Server. By default, this is usually "dev".

To determine the Community_Server_application_instance name

1. In Community Server, start SQL Server Management Studio and examine the aspnet_Applications table.

2. From the ApplicationName column, select the appropriate application name.

The only difference between the two code examples is the defaultProvider for role manager. This ensures that we can continue to use Windows authentication for SharePoint Central Administration but make Community Server Users discoverable in the People Picker control for the SharePoint site.

After you save the files, you must reset IIS. To do so, in a Command Prompt window, type IISRESET /RESTART.

Enabling Forms-Based Authentication on Windows SharePoint Services

The next step is to enable forms-based authentication for the SharePoint site by using SharePoint Central Administration.

To enable forms-based authentication

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office Server, and then click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.

2. Click Application Management.

3. In the Application Security section, click Authentication Providers.

4. Under Zone, click Default.

5. Choose Forms.

6. In the text boxes, type the MembershipProvider (typically AspNetSqlMembershipProvider) and RoleProviders (typically AspNetSqlRoleProvider), defined in the Membership and Role Manager sections respectively in the XML above, and then click Save.

When you save the changes, Windows SharePoint Services automatically adds an Authentication section to the web.config file for the SharePoint site indicating to IIS to use forms-based authentication instead of the default Windows authentication.

Adding a Community Server Administrator to the SharePoint Site

Next, we add a Community Server administrator to manage the SharePoint site. If there is not one already, create a user in the Community Server site to act as the administrator for the SharePoint site. The user does not have to have any special roles defined. We used the built-in Community Server Admin account.

To add a Community Server Administrator to the SharePoint site

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Office Server, and then click SharePoint 3.0 Central Administration.

2. Click Application Management.

3. In the Application Security section, click Policy for Web application.

4. In the list of Web applications, select the Web application on which you want to operate.

5. Click Add Users.

6. From the Zone list, select Default, and then click Next.

7. In the Users box, type the user name of the administrator account that you created in Community Server.

8. Press Enter or click the check box to resolve the user. If the user name does not resolve, check the web.config settings and connectionString values.

9. After the name resolves, select Full control, and then click Finish.

Adding Community Server Roles to SharePoint Security Groups

Adding individual users to SharePoint security groups manually is time-consuming and creates unnecessary and redundant overhead for site administrators because typically there is already a security group that defines a set of users. The latest release of SharePoint Products and Technologies treat ASP.NET roles as security groups. For example, we can add the Community Server "Registered Users" role to the "Home Visitors" group of the SharePoint site. This assigns any member of the Community Server "Registered Users" role to the "Home Visitors" group. Members of the "Registered Users" role would then have read and view access to the SharePoint site.

To grant access for Community Server users to the SharePoint site

1. In Internet Explorer, browse to the SharePoint site.

2. Log on to the SharePoint site by using the Community Server account to which you assigned full control: the "admin" account with the password assigned to it.

3. Type the user name and password for the administrator account.

4. Click Site Actions.

5. Click Site Settings and then click People and Groups.

6. In the list of security groups, select Home Visitors.

7. Click New.

8. In the Users text box, type Registered Users and then press Enter.

9. After the name resolves, click OK.

10. Test the access with a Community Server user account from the "Registered Users" role. Log on to the SharePoint site. You should see the read-only version of the SharePoint site.

Conclusion

Community Server is a great example of software that is built on top of the ASP.NET flexible membership services. The ASP.NET membership services enables their software to easily interoperate with other products that also use membership services, in this particular case SharePoint Server 2007. The ASP.NET RoleProvider model abstracts Role assignments away from the IT department and to someone closer to this task, so that the IT department can focus on larger issues.

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.

Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Making The Web Work For Your Data Center - Data Hosting Reseller Web Accounts

clock June 15, 2010 11:37 by author Jervis

For a firm as detail-oriented and important as a data center, data hosting reseller web space doesn't come by very easily. A data center is not just any business - it is a business that sometimes deals with sensitive information. And as such, it requires partners who adopt only the highest standards of security and performance.

It may be difficult for some to believe that even for such a center, data hosting reseller web space is available, and even desirable. From what the web-savvy know, reseller hosting is not absolutely secure.

But there are different kinds of reseller hosting available. It all depends on the agreement reached by the reseller outfit and the original web host. At times the two will only enjoy a client-marketer relationship, and all the reseller will do is get customers who will then coordinate directly with the web host. However, it must be noted that resellers who do this usually provide their own service staff, acting not just as marketers but also middlemen for the web hosts and the customers they are able to get.

In any case, such an arrangement will eliminate risks to the security of the data. The data center web staff restrict their correspondences to representatives of the web host itself. Additional security measures, such as the installation of secure web-based conferencing software - which data center representatives may use to securely contact the web hosts and other key business partners - may be requested for an additional fee.

Large reseller web spaces may also be utilized for archiving purposes. A lot of data centers now request secure access to dedicated servers - which may also be acquired with the help of reseller vendors. Dedicated servers ensure speedy transfer of files, and moreover provide the kind of space that would allow a data center to enjoy the modern benefits of remote file storage. Contracting a web host would also save a data center time and manpower in maintaining its own remote storage servers.

Data centers need access to the web, for faster and more efficient transfer and filing of important information. And for a data center, data hosting reseller web space may prove to be practical alternative.

If you’re looking for reseller hosting, you can choose ASPHostPortal. ASPHostPortal is a premiere web hosting provider, proudly support the reliable yet affordable Reseller hosting. The cost to host Reseller is priced at $ 19.99/month only. This great opportunity is provided for all our new and existing customers.

Magento Hosting with ASPHostPortal :: Top 3 Mistakes in Magento

clock June 15, 2010 11:29 by author Jervis

First of all, let us inform you that this article is for those of you who are just starting with Magento. If you are a Magento expert, you will probably know this.  Consider it just a reminder for those who use Magento for first time. There are three common mistakes that most people do when they try to use Magento for first time, so read this article and you won’t be one of them. If you don’t want make mistakes, entrust your magento hosting to ASPHostPortal. We will provide the best service for you.

1. First mistake is downloading Magento’s full release and trying to upload it using ftp. Much easier solution is using Magento downloader method and you won’t lose upgrade capability.

2. More experienced PHP developers will first read Magento Designers Guide before they try to style Magento, but others won’t and that’s the mistake number two. Since Magento has great theme fallback system there is really no need to touch default theme. Although easiest way to make new theme for new Magento is top copy the whole theme to a new folder, don’t do that. Copy only the files you will need: from /design/frontend/default/default/ directory to /design/frontend/default/YOUR_NEW_THEME directory. Do the same thing with /skin/frontend/default/default/ Congratulations, you have your own theme just like that. All that left is to apply new theme (System->Configuration->Design) and you are ready to do with your theme files whatever you want.

3. Third mistake is modifying Magento core files. What files are core ones? All what is in app/code/core folder. If you have a need to modify some of those ones, you just need to duplicate that file in the same directory path to app/code/local. For example, if you need to modify the file
app/code/core/Mage/Checkout/Block/Success.php
copy it to
app/code/local/Mage/Checkout/Block/Success.php
and leave the core file intact. This way your Magento will be more bullet-proof to future updates.

Reseller Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Save Money By Getting a Domain Hosting Reseller Web Space

clock June 11, 2010 07:27 by author Jervis

If you already have experience hosting a large web space, and are comfortable allocating smaller chunks of your web space for different purposes - and to different users, which in fact would make you even more experienced - why not think seriously about going into business reseller hosting? We recommend you to try ASPHostPortal. You can get professional hosting only with the low price. So, try it!

Getting web space is important for your business - some may even say crucial. In this era of electronics and cyber-marketing, even people in your small town rely on you to have a website that will help them become better acquainted with the services and products you have to offer. But is it possible to get web space if you're on a very tight budget? Of course it is! In fact, it's recommended that you do. If you don't have very demanding web space needs, you should start off with good domain hosting reseller web space.

What is domain hosting reseller web space, and how is this different from regular web space? Well for one thing, a reseller package is usually much cheaper than a regular hosting package. It is also usually much smaller. If, say, the smallest buyable package offered by a standard web host is 500 mb of web space, a reseller would be able to give you 200 or even just 100 mb of space, at a lower price. Resellers create flexibility in the market, and make web hosting more accessible to individuals who need to keep a close eye on our wallets.

The features available on the hosted space is also another remarkable difference. There are many different kinds of resellers, therefore it stands to reason that there will be different terms and conditions to using resold space, as well. Sometimes a reseller will not allow you access to a control panel, which you could use to tweak the settings of your web site. At other times, your reseller will not be able to grant you access to your FTP site either. It will depend on the kind of features offered by your reseller, and the agreement you will reach with your reseller regarding administrative access.

But no matter what kind of arrangement you have with your reseller, opt for maximum flexibility, seek the best value for your money. Make sure your reseller is reliable and efficient in responding to inquiries. Get a good domain hosting reseller web account. Set aside your funds for other important aspects of your business!

Community Server Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: MOSS and Community Server

clock June 11, 2010 07:19 by author Jervis

This article talk about different MOSS and Community Server. If you’re looking for Community Server and MOSS, you can always consider ASPHostPortal as the alternatives. We give our best for you.

SharePoint’s Community Features

Yes, SharePoint does have social features like blogs and wikis. They have even been working hard to provide enhanced versions of this “adequate” out of the box capability via Codeplex.

For example, we covered the Community Kit: Enhanced Blogging Edition not that long ago. In addition, you can also download the following community features for SharePoint from Codeplex:

- Enhanced Wiki
- Enhanced Discussion Board Edition
- User Group Edition (1.0)
- External Collaboration Toolkit for SharePoint (Community Edition)

Microsoft has also recently provided a peek into their potential social networking solution: TownSquare. It is currently being prototyped within Microsoft's own organization but they have announced no plans to take it public any time soon, if at all. It does demonstrate however that they are looking to improve on MOSS' out of the box collaboration and social media capabilities.


Telligent Community Server

Community Server is a .NET-based social computing platform that includes functionality such as:

- Blogs
- Forums
- File and Photo Gallery
- Support for User Generated Content
- Integrated Ratings and Comments

The latest release includes capabilities such as:

- Integration with Active Directory, Exchange and SharePoint
- Enterprise level reporting of community activity
- Social Streams or Activity Feeds
- Integration with Amazon S3 for storage
- On demand groups/social circles
- Widgets that enable the sharing of data between applications
- A complete Web Services API based on REST for integration/expansion of the platform

SharePoint / Community Server Integration - It's Not New

Lawrence Liu, Senior Technical Product Manager for Community and Social Computing at Microsoft told us that the “Platform + Partners” approach is directly related to Microsoft's success overall and that they continue to leverage that model for SharePoint/MOSS in the social computing space.

“By working with our named partners in the Social Computing space, customers have the option to acquire additional functionality if they need it today to address their business needs. While we will continue to invest in improving SharePoint as a Business Productivity Platform in our future releases, we will also significantly enhance SharePoint’s Social Computing features and capabilities.”

The integration of Telligent's Community Server with SharePoint is an interesting one — particularly in terms of the history of the integration.

Integration Pre-Community Server 2008
Prior to the latest release of the product, there was a lot of buzz about the integration of Community Server with SharePoint. Microsoft Partners out there, SharePoint Solutions and SharePoint Works specifically, were both offering consulting service solutions that integrated Community Server 2007 with SharePoint.

It was only back in March that SharePoint Solutions announced their integration solution that included a common look and feel and shared mechanism for security. According to the company, they announced their solution at the time when there appeared to be no interest by Telligent to integrate the two products.

Unfortunately, and likely a result of Telligent's announcement, SharePoint Solution's service offering never took off and they have no implementations to date. You can't even find the service offering on their website.

Integration with Community Server 2008
With Community Server 2008, Telligent has taken notice of the sales potential of the product duo. CMSWire had the opportunity to ask Rob Howard, the Telligent CEO, a few questions on this new integration solution. According to Howard, there were many independent solutions for building an integrated community when they built their product back in 2004. Today though, businesses want fewer vendors and integrated technology.

“We’re now applying that same philosophy to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Customers want simplicity, and Office SharePoint Server 2007 is becoming the platform of choice behind the firewall. But at the same time, SharePoint is also missing functionality in some core social computing areas. And that is value that we add … and what customers are demanding. Our belief remains that building an integrated platform is ultimately better for customers.”

How Community Server is Integrated with MOSS

Community Server 2008 is also able to utilize the same security mechanisms that SharePoint uses — Active Directory and Forms-based Authentication being the two most popular. This enables them to tightly integrate their security model, moving seamlessly between the two platforms, based on a common security platform.

In addition, Community Server 2008 provides an email gateway that allows Outlook users to participate in certain community activities without having to leave the coziness of their email client.

Of course, no integration is complete without the development of a number of SharePoint WebParts. In this case:

- Feature and Solution Deployment: Administrators can select what Community Server functionality they want deployed within SharePoint
- Web Parts: Web parts that contain Community Server functionality such as blogs, social streams and more
- Web Part Pages: Complete end-to-end Community Server “experience”
- Event Receivers: Enables List and Document Libraries activities to be included in Community Server social streams
- Search:SharePoint searches will include content stored directly in Community Server

Telligent's Official Release Information for the Integration

So it all looks good and very promising. We asked when it would be officially released as the talk has been going on for quite awhile now.

“We have a preview out now of the SharePoint integration. We’ll have a beta out in August of the new Community Server Evolution platform, and we will officially release soon thereafter. Evolution is a version of Community Server that has been tailored specifically for behind the firewall and goes much deeper than just Office SharePoint Server 2007—it integrates with Active Directory, Microsoft Exchange, and SharePoint. It’s all about bringing Community Server behind the firewall and truly integrating with our customers’ IT environments.”

Of course, we were also curious how much this integration software will cost organizations.

“We’re still working on that. It will definitely be a per-seat license, probably around $50/seat annually. Pricing will scale for volume licenses, and that is the part we’re working on. We’ve already had several organizations with 3,000+ seats starting the conversation.”

You'll also notice that the price of the Professional Edition of Community Server has almost doubled with the new version. According to Howard the answer is “Simple, a change of focus. We’re focusing better on where the market is for this product. Community Server is best for organizations that are supporting decent-sized communities. We introduced another product earlier this year — Graffiti CMS — that is targeted more at small- to medium-sized businesses and is priced much more aggressively.”

Microsoft's View of the Community Server Integration

The integration is a smart move by Telligent. SharePoint is the dominant collaboration and document management platform inside many organizations — particularly those orgs with a Microsoft predisposition. For Telligent to offer a solution that integrates tightly around security and more will encourage these organizations to look to them first for their social media needs.

What does Microsoft say about all this? They love it, of course. According to Lawrence Liu:

“Community Server is used by many organizations (including Microsoft) as a online community solution with blogs and forums as the primary features. More and more of these organizations are using SharePoint for a variety of information management and collaboration scenarios. While SharePoint’s blogs and forums features are sufficient for some of these organizations, others would like to leverage their investments in Community Server but provide a seamlessly integrated user experience on SharePoint.”

Is the match made in heaven? For Microsoft and Telligent it is. With that said, it's less clear what it's going to do to the smaller/other Microsoft Partners such as SharePoint Solutions. But then Community Server is Telligent's baby and Microsoft's belle of the ball. The rest of the field will just have to adapt.

DNN Hosting - ASPHostPortal :: Building Websites with DotNetNuke

clock June 9, 2010 09:10 by author Jervis

As an open-source Web portal, DotNetNuke is a highly efficient content management system best suited for building commercial Web sites, corporate intranets and extranets, and online publishing portals. Being an open-source software with a BSD licensing agreement plan, DotNetNuke is free of cost and can be used for any commercial or non-commercial application. Just giving credit to the DotNetNuke community can suffice the requirement for extensive use of this user-friendly software. Built on a robust Microsoft ASP.NET (VB.NET) platform, DotNetNuke is easily installed and hosted. By downloading and installing the software, you have all of the features and tools required to create and manage your Internet or Intranet site, including its layout, content, security, email client, search engine submission and membership plans. Virtually no programming skills are necessary. ASPHostPortal is a premiere web hosting provider that supports the reliable and low cost DNN hosting plan. Only with $ 5.00/month, you can get DNN hosting. Amazing…So, don’t think too long.

The most important advantage with DotNetNuke in Web hosting is that the user is the site administrator.  Using a highly advanced browser-based Web management system, you have the convenience of managing your site with little or no training. This saves time and money, and adds speed and efficiency to your operations as the intermediary developers are eliminated. Content creation and configuration aspects do not require any additional support services, meaning greater and speedier returns on your merchandize investments. As the software has a modular design, you have the opportunities to market niche products like site templates, premium content management modules and multiple database options to your DotNetNuke clients. As DotNetNuke separates site content from site design, the possibilities for marketing highly tailor-made templates to your clients increase considerably.

DotNetNuke is based on Microsoft technology and includes the .NET framework, meaning you can conveniently work on your existing infrastructure such as Windows Servers, database servers and development tools. The software is also very flexible and integrates well with your built-up systems and automated environments, and requires minimum interventions. Consequently, you have more time to focus on your sales instead of support aspects. With regular updates and introductions of new features, it continues to create value for your Web hosting business in a sustainable manner.

DotNetNuke is fully extensible and scaleable - it can be used to create a Web site of any capacity, from a small writers Web portal to a highly customized corporate Web site. Sites can even be augmented through third-party private assembly tools. DotNetNuke can support multiple portals off one install and the administrators have the advantage of managing any number of sites from this hosting account. DotNetNuke facilitates division of administrative options between the host level and the individual portal level, so there is complete independence and flexibility. It has fully customizable modules that allow a wide variety of changes at all levels. You can conveniently make changes in basic elements like font, type, color and bullet points, overall site appearance, and apply new skins and module containers to the site without affecting the content. DotNetNuke has very high security features on validation, encryptions, tracking ‘bugs’ and mitigating other potential threats. The multi-language localization feature available on DotNetNuke now makes it possible to roll out Web sites that are completely non-English and administrators worldwide would have no difficulty in handling the features.

The DotNetNuke community is growing. Currently there are more than 350,000 registered users and a fast expanding network of third-party developers, hosters and resellers. With a backbone of core programmers and the ever-growing community of users to help to troubleshoot any potential problems, DotNetNuke is never far away. Microsoft supports the DotNetNuke community, hosting the discussions forum on ASP.NET Web site. Shaun Walker of DotNetNuke acknowledged this by stating, “The community would not have grown to what it is today without the support of Microsoft…. There’s a lot of trust based on the fact that we have a solid working relationship with Microsoft.” This close relationship has helped DotNetNuke to take advantages of many cutting-edge features of MS Visual Studio.NET and ASP.NET, and ultimately makes the software even more flexible and user friendly.

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.

About ASPHostPortal.com

We’re a company that works differently to most. Value is what we output and help our customers achieve, not how much money we put in the bank. It’s not because we are altruistic. It’s based on an even simpler principle. "Do good things, and good things will come to you".

Success for us is something that is continually experienced, not something that is reached. For us it is all about the experience – more than the journey. Life is a continual experience. We see the Internet as being an incredible amplifier to the experience of life for all of us. It can help humanity come together to explode in knowledge exploration and discussion. It is continual enlightenment of new ideas, experiences, and passions
