WIF10201: No valid key mapping found for securityToken

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I recently ran into an issue with one of my applications that uses Azure Active Directory authentication.  The application was working properly and all of a sudden, one day we got this error: WIF10201: No valid key mapping found for securityToken: ‘System.IdentityModel.Tokens.X509SecurityToken’ and issuer: ‘’. After a lot of search around, I finally found a […]

Patterns On The Road – Russia 2015

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
If you’ve ever wondered how important Russian developers are to the .NET community, look no further than Resharper and DevExpress. The first comes to us from Saint Petersburg with love, the second is located in Tula, a 2-hour drive South from Moscow. At time when politicians and media feed us with fears and lies about Russia, we would like to remind how fruitful this relationship is to developers of all countries – and want to contribute to strengthen it.Today, I’m excited to announce I’ll deliver the Patterns On The Road tour from March 11th to March 18th in Moscow and
St Petersburg, the largest developer communities in Moscow. The objective of this tour is to promote the idea of pattern-oriented development: not just designing with patterns (what you’ve hopefully already done since the GoF book), but also thinking and coding with patterns. I’ll show how these ideas apply to killer problem: thread safety. For those who want to learn about PostSharp, there will be a free training day in both towns.An evening of patterns or a full day of PostSharp? Choose what’s best for you:Evening Lecture: Taking Design Patterns to the Next LevelDesign patterns are now universally accepted and have...(Read whole news on source site)

A beacon of light in the shadow of failing builds

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
As long as I can remember, I've been using an automatic build system to regularly verify the quality of the code based I've been working on. First using Team Foundation Server, but since a year or so, Jetbrains' Team City. In my current project we use continuous integration builds for running the 12000 .NET and JavaScript unit tests, builds for delivering NuGet packages, builds to deploy the latest version of our system on multiple virtual machines, and builds to verify that the Oracle and SQL Server databases can be upgraded from one version to the other. If one of
these fails, we usually don't need a lot of effort to track down the developer that needs to fix it. But we have another set of builds that never get the same amount of love the normal builds get; our UI automation tests. Since our system is web based, we've been investing a lot in automated end-to-end browser tests using WaTiN and SpecFlow. In spite of our efforts to build a reliable test automation framework on top of that, stability remains a big issue. Sometimes the timing of such a test is an issue, sometimes it's an...(Read whole news on source site)

Using FontAwesome Fonts for HTML Radio Buttons and Checkboxes

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Creating nice looking checkboxes and radio buttons in browsers is still kind of a pain. If you want to have spruce up checkboxes and radios in your Web applications and don’t want to rely on the crappy and differing implementations in various browsers, you have to take things into your own hands. In this post I’ll show how to use FontAwesome symbols for radio button and checkbox selectors. I originally had been using background images for my radio buttons, which looked alright but I found out that the images would not print properly. I needed another solution so I
started looking around to see if I could use FontAwesome fonts and of course you can. I found a few examples, but as is often the case there were a few complications and a few additions I had to make. This post covers all the issues I ran into. What’s wrong with checkboxes and radio buttons? Currently I’m working on an application that has a lot of surveys so it consists of a tons of radio buttons and checkboxes and I wanted to have a nicer and more bold look to them than the boring plain form interface provided in...(Read whole news on source site)

Linux, Debts and Out Of Memory Killer

Imagine that you go to the bank, and ask for a 100,000$ mortgage. The nice guy in the bank agrees to lend you the money,  and since you need to pay that in 5 installments, you take 15,000$ to the contractor, and leave the rest in the bank until it is needed. The bank is doing brisk business, and promise a lot of customers that they can get their mortgage in the bank. Since most of the mortgages are also taken in installments, the bank never actually have enough money to hand over to all lenders. But it make do.
Until one dark day when you come to the bank and ask for the rest of the money, because it is time to install the kitchen cabinets, and you need to pay for that. The nice man in the bank tell you to wait a bit, and goes to see if they have any money. At this point, it would be embarrassing to tell you that they don’t have any money to give you, because they over committed themselves. The nice man from the bank murders you and bury your body in the desert, to avoid you complaining that you...(Read whole news on source site)

Fix Access database error - AOIndex is not an index of this table

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I have been working with Access 2003 for so many years. Recently, after replicating the access database, I have stored it in a folder available on the same network. After that, I was not able to connect with my database and got corruption error - “AOIndex is not an index in this table”. I have tried multiple techniques to get access to my database, but did not get succeeded. I have tried to restore the database from the copy of backup, but due to wrong action, unfortunately, my backup also got corrupt. I was desperately looking for a solution to
get my Access database back. Here, I will explain every technique I have tried, and will recommend the best one according to my experience.  Access database can be corrupt due to following reasons: MSysAccessObjects table corruption.Corruption in MS Access database.Invalid indexes error.Wrong entries in the MSysAccessObjects table. Available option to resolve the problem: 1. Restore Backup: Firstly, if you have a backup, you can simply use the copy of database to restore the database. (Link)2. Jet Compact Utility: Try to repair your Access database by free Microsoft Jet Compact Utility program (make sure you are applying it on a copy of your original database)....(Read whole news on source site)

Another Reason to Like Azure Web Sites - Free Analytics

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Not sure how I missed this when it originally aired, but this Azure Friday video from last June does a great job of showing off one of the benefits of Azure Web Sites, namely free analytics. They come in two flavors, server-side stats, which are enabled as soon as you create your site, and client-side stats, which require that you add a small snippet of JavaScript to your main site layout. Once the feature is enabled, you can get rich information about visitors to your site, including browser stats, page response time (and you can set
up alerts to make sure you're aware when stats exceed certain thresholds), and more. As someone who used to use a separate analytics package (Piwik) to capture this data, it's much nicer to be able to have it all in the same management portal (note that the advanced analytics features are only available in the newer "Preview" portal at the time this post was written)....(Read whole news on source site)
