Adrian Bateman reported on his site about a new MC++ FAQ at the MSDN site. Looks like a pretty good resource worth checking out if you're interested in MC++. Which of course, reminds me that I should set up a links section on my own MC++ FAQ... </p>

SOAP Intermediaries

I've been trying to get my head around how the whole SOAP Processing Model works (specially in v1.2), while at the same time trying to digest WS-Routing and the concept of SOAP Intermediaries. Most makes sense right from the start, but there are a few things I'm still not completely...

New MC++ Winforms Article

My friend Sam just got his first article published on MSDN online together with Chris (whom I've already congratulated via email!). This one covers WinForms programming with Managed C++ on Everett. Be sure to check it out! </p>

Calling Stevesw...

Can someone who can contact Steve Swartz let him know that his RSS feeds still point out DouglasP as the title and managingEditor?

Scalable Apps Tour Slide Deck

Clemens points out the slide decks he and Steve Swartz made for the Scalable Apps Tour. You can grab them here. Just browsed them over, and as usual, excellent stuff. Highly recommended! </p>

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>


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="" > <xs:element name="value1" type="xs:string"/> <xs:any namespace="##any" processContents="skip" /> </xs:schema> </p> And the following XML: </p> whatever...
