In the first article, we took a look at some of the things you need to consider when setting up your own development firm. In this article, I'd like to take a look at the infrastructure you are going to need for your business.

As we headed into Maynard to join some of our friends for an evening at a club listening to overly loud music, my wife, Ulli, suggested that we should go with some of these same friends and their kids to one of the local Chinese restaurants that has a buffet. My reply was that I don’t go to buffets. I can’t go to one and then not eat too much. Her reply was that all I needed was “some discipline”. To which I replied that I have discipline enough to not go the buffet in the first place and tha...

Using Web Services from Visual FoxPro is not difficult, but dealing with Data or Complex objects is not quite as straightforward as it could be. In this article, I’ll describe how you can work with .Net Web Services and pass complex data between VFP and .Net and handle updating scenarios for Data between the two. Accessing Web Services from Visual FoxPro is nothing new. But effectively leveraging Web Services and interacting with them especially when dealing with .Net requires a more complete u...

Armed with new downloads of Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005, I set out to update our development environment. I built a new SQL Server 2005 server that worked flawlessly. That was not the frustrating part. Since Visual Studio 2005 RC0 was pretty buggy on my machine, I decided to play it safe with the release version and rebuild my development PC from scratch. All went well until I got to the Visual Studio install itself. Well, actually that went well too, in a way. I guess I should ...

Your project has grown. The number of programmers has doubled and the productivity has gone up by . . . oh, about 50 percent. Sometimes it seems as if you're actually getting less done than you did with a small team. What happened? What you've just discovered is that larger products mean more complexity.

These tasks provide an interface to the Microsoft Visual SourceSafe SCM. The package consists of a simple framework to support vss functionality as well as some Ant tasks encapsulating frequently used vss commands. Although it is possible to use these commands on the desktop, they were primarily intended to be used by automated build systems. If you get a CreateProcesss IOError=2 when running these, it means that ss.exe was not found. Check to see if yo...

Visual SourceSafe (VSS) is a client/server application which acts as a storage system for files. A file stored in a VSS server is not available via the standard file system, instead, it must be accessed through the VSS client tools - the VSS windows client, the VSS command-line tool, or else some application which integrates with or emulates these client tools....

The current documentation for Visual SourceSafe is terribly meager, especially as it pertains to playing well with Visual InterDev. After much struggling, trial and error, and reading of particularly vague and useless documents I have written one of my own. Try to find any mention of remoting to a VSS database over the internet and you'll come up with scraps. If you search on the net you'll come up with many references to the SourceOffsite (SOS) products by SourceGear. Visual SourceSafe's connec...

A support tool to allow those performing builds to independently determine exactly what source files have been changed and by whom. VssReporter requires Visual SourceSafe 5 or 6 to be pre-installed, both to run it and to build it.

For most Microsoft development teams, Visual Source Safe (VSS) is chosen as the Source Code Management tool before alternatives (like Vault or CVS) are even compared. What this means is that if you work on one of these teams and you’re managing concurrent development, you’ll likely be doing so with the help of VSS. It’s also fair to say that most developers or de-facto VSS administrators don’t ever get a minute worth of training on how to use the features provided by VSS let alone how VSS works ...

Believe it or not, this article is not going to be about how bad VSS is. I've been using VSS since version 1.0, that's before Micrososft bought the product.
