RESTing on the slopes


This past week we attended to some very high priority issues (shown below).  We got a few good shots of our team ….

This isn’t quite the whole Astoria team (the next set of picks we’ll have to get one of the entire team), but the folks in the picture are:

Back row (left to right): Andy Conrad, Carl Perry, Marcelo Ruiz, Mike Flasko (me), Pratik Patel

Front row (left to right): Chris Robinson, Shyam Pather, Pablo Castro

 

The pic below has the same folks as the one above, except it adds Phani Raj on the far right.

Waiting in the cold to hit the slopes ….. I’m not posting any after photos as we looked a bit rough after the day 🙂

    Hi Astoria Team,

    I have a problem need your help.

    I tried one of your quick start: how to: Query a Data Service using AJAX,

    http://quickstarts.asp.net/3-5-extensions/adonetdataservice/QueryDataServiceAndAJAX.aspx

    It works fine when the client and server is in the same solution.

    If I separate the client from the server, it keeps give me the message:

    Access is denied.

    The exception is happened in:

    MicrosoftAjax.js

    function Sys$Net$XMLHttpExecutor$executeRequest()

    this._xmlHttpRequest.open(verb, this._webRequest.getResolvedUrl(), true /*async*/);

    Here is my server side setting:

    config.SetResourceContainerAccessRule("*", ResourceContainerRights.All);

    config.SetServiceOperationAccessRule("*", ServiceOperationRights.All);

    The only thing I changed in the client site is:

    var northwindService = new Sys.Data.DataService("http://localhost:1041/Northwind.svc");

    Could you please tell me what is wrong?

    Thanks.
