ASP.NET 4 includes a feature called SQL cache invalidation. Before ASP.NET 2.0, cachingthe results that came from SQL Server and updating the cache based on a time interval was possible — for example, every 15 seconds or so.

This meant that the end user might see stale data if the result set changedsometime during that 15-second period.In some cases, this time interval result set is unacceptable. In an ideal situation, the result set stored in thecache is destroyed if any underlying change occurs in the source from which the result set is retrieved — inthis case, SQL Server.

With ASP.NET 4, you can make this happen with the use of SQL cache invalidation.This means that when the result set from SQL Server changes, the output cache is triggered to change, andthe end user always sees the latest result set. The data presented is never stale.

At Google, HTTPS is the New HTTP


Security is of paramount importance in applications. APIs are the cornerstone of most applications today and ensuring that the data flowing through the API calls is secure cannot be overemphasized. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) has been available to us for years now and Google has made the first moves in using SSL across its suite of products with a plan to rolling out SSL for most of its developer APIs in the latter part of the year.

Adam Feldman from the Developer Team announced the incorporation of SSL into Google Products and gave a roadmap on which products/APIs of Google are next on incorporating SSL support. Several products like Gmail and Google Docs have already made the transition to mandating SSL. Even Google Maps API is offering SSL to all developers. Several Developer APIs are next and that newer versions of APIs or completely new APIs will be SSL only.

The blog further states that “Beginning September 15, 2011, Google will require that all users of Google Documents List API, Google Spreadsheets API, and Google Sites API use SSL connections for all API requests.” Plain HTTP calls with be disallowed and will result in a 400 Bad Request response. So this is something that developers should note immediately and plan out. The good news is that it should be transparent if you are using the Google Data Client libraries or move to a newer version of the client API that supports SSL. If not, you will need to scan your code for all usages of “http:” and replace them with the http(s) scheme.

Another related post worth reading from Google is Best Practices for User Authentication to ensure that you understand the options available for authenticating any Google user account. This is important so that you understand the 3 forms of authentication available to all Google APIs and the impact that it could have if you are doing programmatic account access in your application that uses the Google APIs.

Going the SSL route has its plus points for sure. But a good question to ask is that if SSL is widely acknowledged as the solution to a lot of data security then why are we all not on SSL yet? Scott Gilberson at wired.com covers a balancing viewpoint in his aptly titled piece HTTPS is more secure, so why isn’t the Web using it?


Why should i give my build to google or microsoft in the name of cloud or whatever . .

Rule number one : don’t screw around with the browser of your enduser. Say that you were able to filter out the print menu item. What about the keyboard combination ctrl + P? You could override that again with some javascript but that only leaves the enduser clueless as you’re overriding standard functionality and that’s a big nono.

Besides that, you’re using javascript. That can be turned off by an enduser and then your clipboard erasing script also doesn’t work anymore. Poof and there goes your protection level.

try it . .

Thank you


for firefox try as below:

 

    • 1

      Make sure the new media player is installed on your computer. Popular media players include Real Player, QuickTime, Windows Media Player and WinAmp.

    • 2

      Open Mozilla Firefox and click “Tools” and then “Options” on the main menu.

    • 3

      Click the “Applications” tab. Scroll down on the list of file types until you find all of your media file types, including playlists, audio and videos.

    • 4

      Select the “Action” column box next to each of your media file types. You will see a drop-down box.

    • 5

      Change your default media player for each file type by clicking “Use other.” Choose “Always Ask” from the list if you want the browser to ask you every time which media player you want to use, or choose “Save File” if you want to automatically save the file to your computer instead of opening it.

    • 6

      Press “OK” to close the dialog box. Close and restart your browser to activate the new settings. Click on a song or video file in your browser to make sure it recognizes your choice from Step 4 and opens the file in your new default media player.

Thank you . .

Ever seen an Operating System in a web browser, your answer might be no ! Then why not have a look at this one – this is one of the first operating system you would have ever seen before – Online virtual operating system – which has been rolled out by windows4all.com, and developed by using Microsoft Silverlight.

When you browse to windows4all.com, it will request us to install Sliverlight on to desktop, if you have already installed the same on to your desktop, then you will be directly redirected to the Operating System i.e. Windows Vista , if you are installing Silverlight for the first time, it will request you to restart the Browser. After installing, just browse to windows4all.com.

You can view Virtual Operating System right in your respective browser, it has a start button (like Windows Vista and older versions), File Explorer (Like Windows Explorer), a Media Player, a Notepad, RSS reader, Paint application, Games like Chess, Solitaire, Spider, Tic-tac-toe, and many more… The most interesting part is that you can also play .wmv and .wma media files in Media Player directly from Local Drive, i.e. from your Hard Drive.

This virtual operating system also supports installation of programs, but the respective program should be developed in Silverlight and be available on Internet or local file system. This online virtual operating system is in alpha stage now ! And will get more features added in future

Drag and Drop Uploading for YouTube Videos


Drag and Drop Uploading for YouTube Videos

Why download YouTube videos when it’s so easy to upload videos? Now you can drag and drop multiple videos on YouTube’s upload page instead of using the operating system’s file open dialog. The new feature requires a recent version of Google Chrome and Firefox because it uses HTML5 APIs.

Two other Google services that support drag and drop uploading are Gmail and Google Docs, but other services will probably follow suit.
