Dispatch

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: ASP.NET, Deployment - Installation

Author: Bobby DeRosa

Latest version: 1.0.2.6
Added 2006-10-03Updated 2008-02-07

Visaul Studio plugin that helps you keep track of the files that need to be uploaded for your ASP.NET projects.
Dispatch is designed for web developers that don't need a build server to deploy their projects. If you use in-place compilation or Web Application Projects, Dispatch can be used when it comes time to sync your changes.

Features include:
- Uploading files by checking boxes and clicking a button or keyboard command.
- Let Dispatch handle the task of determining which files need to be uploaded.
- Track modified files in realtime or do a file comparison-when you're ready to deploy.
- Specify the FTP settings for your site and you're set. Optionally, you can configure file filters using wildcard patterns to filter out files that shouldn't be deployed.
- Local connection string different from your production connection string? Use String Replacement to replace strings in any project file on-upload.
- In addition to file-change tracking, Dispatch offers File Comparison at a per-directory level in two different modes, so you can identify dirty files.
- The Remote View Overlay feature fuses your remote file system directly on top of your local file system, giving an overview of project inconsistencies.
- Items that exist remotely can be downloaded, renamed and deleted. Remote-only items appear opaque and are noted with a red bullet. Items that exist locally-only are noted with a green bullet.
- As an option, Dispatch can quietly monitor changes to files within your projects. When a file is added, renamed or updated, the file will be queued for upload. When you are ready to deploy, click the Upload button at the top and Dispatch will asynchronously transfer your files to your server.
- Integration with Visual Studio 2005/2008.

PageMethods

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: metaSapiens

Latest version: 1.6.2.2
Added 2005-05-12Updated 2006-03-05

Well-defined URLs for your ASP.NET sites and applications.
Linking to a web page is very easy, both in simple HTML and in ASP.NET. Linking to a page that really exists, passing the right parameters, and parsing these parameters, is a bit different.
PageMethods takes care of your URLs. It proposes a solution to define structured URLs for each of your pages, as well as a clean and simple way to call them.
The idea is based on strict page inputs and declarative parameter binding. With PageMethods, each page exposes a set of methods that represent the different ways to call the page. All you have to do to start benefiting from sharp URLs is to add methods to your pages, and mark these methods with attributes provided by PageMethods.

Features include:
- Object-oriented approach for hyperlinks
- No concatenations of strings required anymore
- Strongly typed parameters
- Automated parameter handling
- Parameter validation
- Compile-time checks
- Code completion
- Integrated with Visual Studio 2003 and 2005
- Support for HTTP GET and HTTP POST
- Support for arrays and custom objects

ASP.NET AJAX

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: Microsoft

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2005-09-19Updated 2006-12-15

Package of Web development technologies that integrates a set of client script libraries with the server-based development platform of ASP.NET 2.0.
ASP.NET AJAX enables you to develop Web applications that can update data on a Web page by making direct calls to a Web server Ś without needing to round trip the page Ś following in this the AJAX technique. With ASP.NET AJAX, you can take advantage of ASP.NET and server-side code while doing much of the work in the browser.

Features include:
- Client script libraries that provide a solution for creating client-based Web applications. The client script libraries support object-oriented development, cross-browser compatibility, asynchronous calls to Web services, and behaviors and components for creating the UI.
- Web server controls that provide a declarative way to emit markup and client script for AJAX features.
- Web services, such as ASP.NET profiles, that can add server-side features to an Atlas application.

SessionBridge

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: ASP.NET, Interoperability

Author: Westglenn Software

Latest version: 2.0.0.4
Added 2005-01-10

Allows ASP.NET and ASP pages to share session variables.
SessionBridge includes a COM object that intercepts your calls to ASP's Session variables and stores them as ASP.Net session variables. You do have to make changes to your ASP code (most of these can be handled by an automated search and replace), but since SessionBridge is using ASP.NET's Session object to store the variables, your ASP.NET code is exactly what you would normally write. When you have converted your entire application, you are not using SessionBridge at all anymore and are left with standard ASP.NET code.

Faster time to last byte is achieved by combining and compressing resources, and ensuring that cache headers for all resources are set to values that result in persistent caching by browser clients.

Features include:
- Reduces the number of requests required by a site, reducing latency and increasing performance
- No changes needed to clients: The RPO is a server component. Nothing needs to be installed on the web browser clients.
- Page-by-page or the entire site: You can configure the RPO optimize a single page, a number of pages or the entire site.
- Stealth mode: You can leave the site unoptimized for regular users, while testing and tuning the optimization just for yourself
- Single server or load balanced: The RPO works in both single server and load-balanced environments
- Include, exclude or strip files
- Browser aware: Optimizations are automatically turned on or off depending on the client's browser
- Cache management: Optimized resources are cached on the server and web browser clients
- Automated or manual setup
- Sprite management: Create sprite libraries that you can reference from JS or HTML
- Customizable configuration

Ajaxium for ASP.NET

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: Ajaxium

Latest version: 2.0.2
Added 2006-11-14

AJAX engine for ASP.NET focusing on having sites remain accessible to all search engines and old browsers thanks to an automatic and silent degradation to classic ASP.NET.

Ajaxium handles the default ASP.NET postback client-side method and tries to perform a hidden AJAX request instead. The server-side code detects that the request has been performed in an AJAX-friendly way and after executing the page, analyzes the difference between the HTML displayed on the client and the newly generated content. If the AJAX request has failed for some reason, the client-side code executes the default ASP.NET postback method and the website works in an ASP.NET mode.

Features include:
- supports most ASP.NET controls
- ability to perform an update of single and multiple panels or the whole ASP.NET form automatically
- compression of each AJAX response
- preserves controls' focus during AJAX-based updates
- timers
- Loading notification panels
- can handle transfer from one ASP.NET page to another

SlickUpload

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: Krystalware

Latest version: 2.6
Added 2005-09-17Updated 2006-09-25

ASP.NET HttpModule that provides scalable upload handling.

ASP.NET doesn't have any capacity to stream requests to disk, and thus will load an entire upload into memory before processing it. This can cause scalability problems, as well as opening up a possible vulnerability to a denial of service (DOS) attack. SlickUpload fixes these problems by intercepting the request before the ASP.NET page processing engine gets it, and streaming it in chunks directly to disk or to a database. This eliminates the problem of loading the request into memory.
SlickUpload also provides progress and status information during the upload process, allowing an application to display upload status to the user in real time.

Categories: ASP.NET

Author: Nikhil Kothari

Latest version: 0.5.0.0
Added 2008-04-23

Script# is a free tool that brings productivity to Ajax and JavaScript development by enabling developers to author C# source code that can be subsequently compiled into regular script that works across all browsers, and to leverage .NET tools as well as Visual Studio, in that process.
Script# allows programming against DOM, DHTML, and JavaScript APIs, as well as Silverlight APIs in the browser and other browser-based application environments such as Vista Sidebar Gadgets. The Script# compiler can be used with multiple script frameworks. It is complemented by the Script# Framework, and can also be used to program using other frameworks such as Microsoft ASP.NET Ajax and ExtJS. Finally, if you've got existing scripts, they can be imported and reused, so you don't have to rewrite everything from scratch.
