Will this be supported soon?
probably by early Jan 08.
looking 4ward 2 it!
Will this be available on existing servers, or only new ones that get rolled out?
I will have to see how the process goes, it will not be officially supported by hsphere that I know
No support of any kind of required from H-Sphere as far as I know.
It's a bit strange, but you just leave the website configured as ASP.NET 2.0. If .NET framework 3.5 is installed, it will magically work :]
We will have our first production site running in 3.5 sometime next week. No problems so far
I have no idea how the new stuff behaves in limited trust environments though. I doubt the fancy ORM will function, which is a shame really
I just installed VS2008 for such testing!
The more I read about LINQ and the new MVC framework the more excited I get. I think my next project will make use of those, so I look forward to Jodohost supporting it.
LINQ is pretty awesome when the alternative is wring stored procedures that produce dynamic SQL just because you need to page/sort a GridView in ASP.NET 8)
There are other ORM libraries, but I couldn't get NHibernate to work on JodoHost at least. It requires a minor tweak to medium trust I think..
So I'm hoping the .NET 3.5 object relational mapping will work, to save me a lot of boring work writing classes for each table in my database
From the news about Win3 on cluster 2 I assume testing with H-Sphere and .NET 3.5 was indeed succesful.
Do you have any ETA on updating existing servers?
Also, does the the ORM using .dbml files and/or SqlMetal work?
It works yes, updating existing servers I need to check on it on a small scale before committing to such, but i think all with ASP.NET 2.0 can be upgraded without changing the 1.1 entries in IIS.
As for LINQ I am still testing it within the medium trust but since i was launching a new server I wanted to get it out ASAP.
When will ASP.NET 3.5 be available at win1.g********.com?
Thx in Advance
Well I do have a bad report, it seems that win13 won't be able to do asp.net 3.5
I tried to install asp.net 3 as it is required before 3.5 and it fails every time and the only resolution as per MS is to totally wipe out all ASP.NET versions and re-install them which is a non starter on a production server.
Hopefully this was just a fluke since win13 was one of the first asp.net 2 supporting servers we had online.
Thanks for the update. Sorry to hear about Win13, but I suppose it's possible to transfer domains to another machine if need be in the future.
Yes I was trying on win13 since I needed to reboot it anyway. I will be working to upgrade win14 and win15 in the coming 2 weeks or less. I have said that we will be supporting it in early Jan, and plan to work on keeping that true.
can you comment anything on by when win2 will have support for .Net 3.5?
It will be in early Jan however win13 will not, as it fails in every upgrade attempt.
Ugh! Wouldn't you know what server I'm stuck on!
Can anyone verify that the new compiler features also work? For example, can I use the new CSharp var keyword? Or does switching to 2.0 simply give us 3.5 API features?
Yes. If the domain in question is on a server with asp.net 3.5 installed, all you need to do is to switch to asp.net 2.0 from control panel. That will give you access to asp.net 3.5 features.
