DevExpress VCL 14.1 released: full support for RAD Studio XE7

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
If you are a RAD Studio fan, whether your choice of compiler is Delphi or C++Builder, you’ll no doubt already know that Embarcadero released RAD Studio XE7 a week ago. We of course immediately downloaded our copies and made the final changes to DevExpress VCL to support it, ran our tests, and created a build. I am happy to announce that we released DevExpress VCL v14.1.4 early this morning with full support for 32-bit and 64-bit Delphi and C++Builder XE7. If you are an active DevExpress VCL customer, you can download the new version from the
href="">Download Center right now. You can read all about What’s New in v14.1.4 here, including a list of all the enhancements and bug fixes that were published. ...(Read whole news on source site) is now running on Voron

After about a week of running (and no further issues ) on the Esent database, we have now converted the backend database behind this blog to Voron. The process was done by: Putting App_Offline.html file for Exporting the data from database using the smuggler. Deleting the database configuration from RavenDB, but retaining the actual database on disk. Creating a new RavenDB database with Voron as the new database. Importing the data from the previous export using smuggler. Deleting the App_Offline.html file. Everything seems to be operating normally, at least for now. To my knowledge, this is
the first production deployment of Voron ....(Read whole news on source site)

NHibernate Pitfalls: HQL Delete Does Not Cascade

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
This is part of a series of posts about NHibernate Pitfalls. See the entire collection here. - See more at: you issue an HQL delete statement over an entity, you may be surprised to find out that it will not cascade to any configured associations it may have:
New", courier, monospace; font-size: 8pt; direction: ltr; background-color: rgb(244, 244, 244);"> 1: session.CreateQuery("delete from Order o where o.Id = :id").SetParameter("id", 10).ExecuteUpdate();
If you really want to cascade associations, you will have to load the entity explicitly and then call ISession.Delete() upon it....(Read whole news on source site)

Windows Media Center, XBOX 360, Visual Studio, and You

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
With the understanding that the overlap in a Venn diagram describing folks who use Windows Media Center, XBOX 360 as a Media Center Extender, and Visual Studio on their WMC machine is probably vanishingly small, I thought it might still be useful to post the problems I experienced with this combo, and the solution. My Setup I've been a longtime fan of Windows Media Center, ever since a former neighbor of mine showed me his WMC setup years ago. For a 10-foot experience, I think that the WMC "twist" interface works great, and it integrated very well with my Logitech
Harmony remote, using my XBOX 360 as a media center extender (I also tried one of the dedicated media center extenders, but it was underpowered and slow, and just painful to use). I first used Windows Media Center with a Dell XPS 420 machine (a powerhouse at the time I bought it), along with dual CableCard tuners, allowing me to record two shows at a time in full HD from my FiOS TV subscription. I've since dumped FiOS TV, and now just record the few shows I care about over the air. But it's still a great solution, IMO,...(Read whole news on source site)

Decorating A Backbone.Model With Features, For A UI Component

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I’m a huge fan of component based UI development – the idea of having individual functional things in a UI be an encapsulated “component”. Have a search form? That’s a component. The search results? A separate component. That menu system? You guessed it… a component. There are a lot of benefits to doing things this […]
