You can use the System.Web.Security.ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider class to do Membership against active directory!!!
However, you have to setup a special connection string to point to a domain controller and to run as a user to query LDAP.
I’ll be working with this a little bit later and will likely post the code for this project somewhere…
Here is more info on how to do this:
Sweet! A course to call my very own…well…Jacob’s too. Thanks to everyone that has supported us up to this point! We are very excited to get our site up, the course material finally built, and delivered!!! Like I said, we are very very excited!
Currently we are trying to figure out how to move all of our posts on other blog sites over to here, if anything, likely that we will just leave them be and start new ones here. I think I will post a Smart Client Software Factory lab or two at some point. We will be creating various extra labs aside from the course labs that we will post for everyone to enjoy…so keep looking for those!
The site is pretty bare at this point, but that will change with time! 😉
Exciting times are coming!
I just finished the latest lab of our course last nite with this great new tool from Microsoft’s patterns and practices group! It was quite the learning curve but I endured and have some fresh new labs that are much more simple than the ones posted to the CAB and Smart Client websites!
Our new students are going to love this stuff!
Every student and friend has seen my codegen tool, but few have got to use it. I will be posting details of the tool here and reference the website when I implement a more 2.0 friendly codegen stack inside of it. Look out CodeSmith!!
I’m working on it…almost have it, this darn 400 response from MSMQ is driving me crazy. Later I might post the code for everyone to take a gander at and let me know what I might be missing…
By far, the coolest things about BizTalk 2006 are:
- Flat File Schema generator…wow…that thing is awesome!
- Application containers in the BizTalk Admin Console…good job MS!
- Bigger window to code custom C# code in orchestrations…woohoo!
There are a few others, but dang…those are some biggies!
