So I noticed several discussion threads from a few months ago in regards to using the SqlConfigurationSource in Entlib 5.0
Not being one to wait around indefinitely I thought I would pull down the code and upgrade it to use the 5.0 stuff. "How hard could it be?" I thought. Ok, so I have been using Entlib for a while now (since 2.0), but never really opened
the hood. Unfortunately it appears that there are some major architectural differences between 4.1 and 5.0 that have me at a loss for how to proceed.
I would really like to move forward with this, but I am also impatient enough to not want to wait on someone else. So...
Can anyone on the P&P team point me in the right direction? How much refactoring is necessary to port this thing to 5.0?
There are some types that are gone like...
...and some interfaces that have drastically different contracts like...
Overall though the actual SqlConfigurationSource and the SqlConfigurationSource.Design projects don't look that complicated. Is there a good example I should be looking at for 5.0 that would show me
how I should be implementing something similar? I know you guys are "swamped" so if I can do the grunt work with some guidance and then submit it all back that might help out. There seems to at least be genuine desire to have this
functionality in 5.0
Ok, so sorry for the barrage of questions.
Thanks in advance for the help (that is such a presumptuous statement isn't it),
