NHibernate 3.2 Upgrades

uNhAddIns patch for NHibernate 3.1

2011/10/05 Comments off

since most NuGet packages related to NHibernate come with NHibernate version 3.1.0.4000 (at the time of writing), I tried rebuilding uNhAddIns (commit #773) with the newer version of NHibernate.

My changes:

  • upgraded NHibernate to version 3.1.0.4000 (Iesi.Collections, NHibernate, NHibernate.ByteCode.Castle)
  • implemented new Interface method ‘IsProxy’ for IProxyFactoryFactory (CSLProxyFactoryFactory, ProxyFactoryFactory)

BTW: .NET is becoming more and more like Java… Who doesn’t love names like ‘IProxyFactoryFactory’? ;-)

I did not update any tests.

Feel free to use this code (no licence).

App.Config: Order matters

2011/09/23 1 comment

Note to self:

Within an App/Web.config in .NET… The startup node must be the last node…

Example: Create a plain WPF application from Visual Studio 2010, add an App.Config file, and try building Option 1 and Option 2 below.

Option 1:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
  <startup><supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/></startup>
  <configSections />
</configuration>

This throws: “The type initializer for ‘System.Windows.Application’ threw an exception.”

Option 2:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
  <configSections />
  <startup><supportedRuntime version="v4.0" sku=".NETFramework,Version=v4.0"/></startup>
</configuration>

Fine.

Do I want to read 2.5MB of

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Xml\Schemas\DotNetConfig.xsd

? No.

Rails and Emacs: Rsense and Auto-Complete

2011/07/17 Comments off

If you’re developing Rails with Emacs and using Rinari here are two more extensions you might like:

http://cx4a.org/software/auto-complete/

and

http://cx4a.org/software/rsense/

Installation. Just  as described. Code completion for ruby-on-rails with emacs!

And the package is written in Java(!), Very cool!

I am impressed!

Antivir regression bug makes Visual Studio 2010 unusable

2011/07/09 Comments off

The current version of Antivir Personal slows down Visual Studio 2010 making it unbearable to develop ASP.NET applications.

Debugging with active Antivir: appr. 5min for an empty Default.aspx page to display.

Debugging with deactivated Antivir: a few seconds for an empty Default.aspx page to display.

Until Antivir fixes this bug I will give Microsoft Security Essentials a try.

Regression because this has been addressed and fixed in December 2010:

Workaround for VirtualBox 4.0.8 regression bug

2011/05/25 Comments off

The current version of Oracle’s VirtualBox (4.0.8) has Version 4.0.8 had a regression bug which seems to only manifest itself when using Debian based hosts with 64-bit and Windows 7 64-bit guest system.

Here is the summary of the workaround posted as VirtualBox Ticket 8948:

  1. Edit the settings file to allow the VM to start again (Replace control characters in line 315 with 4.0.8).
  2. Start the Windows guest
  3. Run regedit
  4. Go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Oracle\VirtualBox Guest Additions
  5. Create a string key VersionEx (use exactly this spelling)
  6. Give it a reasonable value (ie 4.0.8)
  7. Shut down the VM.
  8. Repeat step 1
  9. Restart and shutdown windows guest again
That’s it.
Edit: This bug has been fixed in version 4.0.10 (released 2011-06-27).
