More on xs:any

Fumiaki Yoshimatsu points out on a comment to my xs:any post that skip seems to work on .NET 1.1. I just tried it, and indeed it works and shows no error. Lax still gives me an error, though, which I think should not, either. </p>

WS-Addressing

Justin complains that no one has commented or answered his comments on WS-Addressing. Since some of his comments are directly addressed to me, I think it's only fair to respond :) I've been looking into WS-Addressing, too, trying to understand the whole thing. I haven't quite contemplated all scenarios, but...

xs:any and Validation

Can anyone help me out by clarifying what the correct behavior should be for an XSD validator in the prescence of xs:any? Imagine I had the following schema: </p> <xs:schema targetNamespace="/schemas/valprb1" elementFormDefault="qualified" xmlns="/schemas/valprb1" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" > <xs:element name="value1" type="xs:string"/> <xs:any namespace="##any" processContents="skip" /> </xs:schema> </p> And the following XML: </p> whatever...

Old MC++ FAQ Feed

Some people seem to still be subscribed to my old RSS 0.91 feed for my MC++ FAQ, which was discontinued a long time ago since I moved it to RSS 2.0. For some reason, I had left lying the original xml file, which should be deleted now. Please update your...

SQL Issue Resolved!

I just managed to resolve the issue I was having with SQL Server 2000 on Windows Server 2003. Thanks go to Steve Kass (a fellow MVP), who refered me to KB Article 309398. The problem was that I had installed on my machine Certificate Server before installing SQL. Once I...

Linked from MS.COM

Found out from my referrer list that one of the pages in the Visual C++ MSDN site links to my MC++ FAQ. OK, no biggie, but I thought it was pretty cool :) </p>

SQL2K and WinServer 2003

I know it's possible to run SQL Server 2000 with Windows Server 2003, but you need a service pack. That's fine. But how the heck are you supposed to do it if SQL2K won't install so you can apply SP3 to it? I tried for a couple of hours yesterday...

Upgrading

I'm just coming back up again from upgrading my notebook (well, my only computer at home, really ) with Windows Server 2003. So far, I've got VS.NET 2002 & 2003 (but with no docs.... msdn too big for me to download!), office 2003 beta 2 and a bunch of other...

SoapExtensions per class

Someone was asking today in the ASP.NET newsgroups if there was an easy way to apply a SoapExtension to a complete WebService-derived class, instead of applying his custom SoapExtensionAttribute-derived attribute class to each and every WebMethod. I looked and, afaics, there isn't one [1], since it seems the runtime won't...

Mattias Sjögren, friend and fellow MVP, has created a new website dotnetinterop.com full of tips and articles on .NET interop facilities (both P/Invoke and COM Interop). If you're using either one, do yourself a favor and stop by :)
