*Moved to: TFS Event Handler in .NET 3.5I have decided to have a little go at creating a Team Foundation Server Event Handler in .NET 3.5 that is resilient and scaleable. I will be using as many of the features of Team Suit as I can, but bear with me as there are a few things that are new to me.

*Moved to: TFS Event Handler Prototype FeedbackI would be interested in finding out if anyone is using the TFS Event Handler I created on CodePlex. The main reason for this is to solicit feedback for the process and integration capabilities. The TFS Event Handler removes the need to integrate with the Team Foundation Server events. It provides a simple API for making decisions on what to do with event that are raised.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: Creating your own Event HandlerCreating an event handler with the Team Foundation Server Event Handlers is very easy. You will need to inherit from the AEventHandler class which is part of RDdotNet.TeamFoundation.dll located in the install directory (I will make an SDK later).

*Moved to: TFS Event Handler prototype Configuration DemystifiedThere are a number of config options for the TFS Event Handler Prototype. I will describe all of them in depth here. If you have installed the service and set the account that is used to run the service you should get no errors when starting. No guarantees though :) Read the full article...Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: TFS Event Handler: Prototype ReleasedAs promised I have released the application and code for my prototype TFS Event Handler. I am currently working on the documentation, but I though I would give the bravest of you advanced notice of the release. You should be able to figure out how to configure it and extend it without much help (who reads documentation anyway), but for those of you who need that extra hand I will hopefully, time permitting, be releasing some sort of rudimentary documentation ...
*Moved to: TFS Event Handler: CTP 1 DelayedDue to a number of reasons: My wife is due to give birth this week some time I only have access to TFS at work, and my development time has been cut down. I'm lazy... The first CTP of the Team Foundation Server Event Handler has been delayed. I have, however made a number of enhancements of the surrounding framework that will allow the smother function of this and other releases.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: My Wish List of Team Foundation Server ToolsTFS Event Handler This tool would run on the TFS server and capture all of the soap events being generated by Team Server. These would then be passed to the Event Handler Manger that would send the event to all of the loaded Handlers. Handlers can be dynamically loaded in to the system by uploading a DLL from a client tool.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...

*Moved to: WorkflowI am thinking of adding WF support to my Team Foundation Server Event Handler, but I am interested in a discussion on the topic of the how's and wherefores. I have seen a lot of people implementing Workflow for Team Server and this would provide them a host system. I have started a discussion on CodePlex: Workflow ImplementationRead more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: TFS Event Handler ProgressI am making lots of progress with this project and I have only a couple of work items left for CTP1: 138 Security issues on uploaded assemblies 203 Error handling on service 204 Create Admin system as Application Now 204 is nearly complete, with only testing to go and that is dependant on 203.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: TFS Event Handler: CTP1 ImminentI have decided to go the same root as MS and use the Community Technology Preview (CTP) structure for my releases as there are quite a few people interested in using the TFS Event Handler. I am working this week on getting TFS Event Handler CTP1 up and running with the full initial functionality. As I am off work this week I should have plenty of time for this, but my wife also want me to paint the house ;), so we will see...Read more...Follow my new blog ...
*Moved to: TFS Event Handler: Coverage & CommentsI am getting some positive feedback on the project from Richard Berg, and he had blogged about it under the title of New CodePlex project: TFS Event Handler. And John Lambert has commented on some issues that he has envisioned with referenced assemblies and security of allowing people to upload Assemblies. I would like to address both of these issues:Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
*Moved to: TFS EventHandler: MSMQ RefactorI am half way through the MSMQ Refactor of my TFS Event Handler project and thing are starting to come together. I have changed it so that instead of one big solution I will have three smaller ones. This will allow me to cross reference the different services. Essentially the Team Server fires events that a service (TFSEventQueuer) captures and adds them, with a little jiggery porkery, to a message queue. The second service (TFSEventHandlers) reads the Queue ...
*Moved to: TFS EventHandler: Now on CodePlexI have now added my Team Foundation Server EventHandler to CodePlex, but don't get too exited as I am currently mid refractor. I am moving to the more reliable Message Queuing for the system, and probably moving it to a Windows Service instead of the current Website. I did actually start with web services but I found it more complicated to setup and create an install. You can find the project under TFSEventHandler on CodePlex, but I do not have a build ...
*Moved to: TFS EventHandler: Message QueuingAs I mentioned in my previous post I am currently building an EventHandler infrastructure for Team Foundation Server. I am currently toying with the idea of re-engineering to two system services. The first that handles the Team Foundation Server events and puts them onto an event specific message queue and another that handles the reading the messages and action all the event handlers. The reason that I am thinking this way is that when a new EventHandler ...
*Moved to: Team Server Event Handlers made easy...Will, not really... I work for a rather large organization and I wanted an easy way for power users of team system to deploy event handlers for the Team Foundation Server events. Essentially they create an assembly with as many EventHandler classes as they like and they can upload their assembly through an administration system, which in turn executes any handlers that exist on the system for any events.Read more...Follow my new blog on http://blog.hinshelwood.com ...
Well I've been extremely busy in the last month and have not blogged much, I'm off to Disney for a few weeks, then DevTeach and after that I'll get right back to it. So after everybody and their dogs mentioned you all that VSTS "Orcas" B1 is finally available, I'm just going to say, go here for all the info. There are two (2) different VPC, one is with both TFS and VSTS and the other is only VSTS beware what you download ;-). You will also need the base differencing disk to run those images. All ...
UPDATE (12/17/2007): My blog has moved. This post is now located at: http://jason.whitehorn.ws/2... Sometimes you want your web services to use an SSL communications channel, but for one reason or another you cannot use a SSL certificate from a major CA. Just this past week we had just such a need at work. A coworker of mine was having difficulties making web service calls over SSL when the certificate's CA could not be trusted by .NET. I had mentioned ...
Just like the man who returns to the upscale whore knowing that there's something dirty about what he's about to do, so it was with me and Madden 07 today. Let me be frank: I'm still very bitter about the exclusive EA license granted by the NFL, and the corresponding loss of the amazing NFL 2KX franchise. However, I need my football fix, and Blitz: The League just isn't going to do it. So I turn to EA and their Madden franchise for football satisfaction. I'm not going to bemoan Madden 06; its gone, ...
Yep, that's my first bit of non-swag Gamefest news I want to share. I know it's not very technical, but she was the closest thing I met to a celebrity there so that elevated the coolness of it. Just who exactly is E.Gauger you ask? And I ask you, you mean you don't read Kotaku yet consider yourself a geek? Shame on you. But, just so you don't get embarrassed next time this comes up, seriously check out Kotaku, it's this geeky gaming news website which does all the work for me by collecting all gaming ...
I had just wrestled with dealing with an NHibernate exception that was beyond useless since I KNEW that my mappings were good . I had used Nhibernates's hbm2ddl tool to generate schema for some tables. The output for one of my tables was as follows: create table eMerge.dbo.MaterialTest (Id INT IDENTITY NOT NULL, TypeCode NVARCHAR(255) not null, Name NVARCHAR(255) null, Description NVARCHAR(255) null, MaterialTestAgencyId INT null, primary key (Id)) c If the TypeCode field is used for my discriminator ...
I like VS 2005 Team System ability to generate test cases. Using it with TestDriven.Net “Test with Debugger” allows quickly debug and test a new or existing code. However if you do a relatively long debugger session with multiple edit changes, the test session is often interrupted. I found that “Edit and Continue” for Windows form(or console) application is more stable. So my question was: can I call TestMethod from Windows form test harness? The answer is YES, no problem. You need to add reference ...
Not long ago (I’m talking days here) I watched a Channel 9 video of Sanaz Ahari and Steve Rider - Start.com where they talked / demoed the start.com/3 project. This project is part of the MSN “Sandbox” Honestly, it’s pretty neat. A drag and drop start page rich with RSS support, collapsible sidebars etc. it makes for a cool experience. If you want to skip the silly trivia questions and get right to the site is is at www.start.com/myw3b. When you check it out be sure and click ...
