IIS 7 Logging UI For Vista – Download Now

As many of you already know, the management console for IIS 7.0 on Windows Vista does not have a UI for logging.  Since this was a pain point for several customers, I decided to test out the extensibility APIs by creating a logging UI module. 

I’ve posted a preview version of my logging UI on the newly opened IIS Download Center. I will be releasing a few updates throughout the week with changes. The module also contains the source code for my UI module under the Microsoft Permissive License. This code will also be updated in future releases.

You can find the download at:

South Carolina Business One Stop (SCBOS) news

A project my company designed, managed, and mostly developed was in the news over the weekend. The article doesn’t mention TiBA Solutions at all, but in fairness, they don’t mention the other players that participated in design review or some components of the development phase either. Its been a stressful project, but fairly rewarding. We implemented Wilson master pages since ASP.NET 2.0 was not available yet. We heavily relied on remoting and implemented a quasi-SOA architecture. (SOA purists are yelling at me right now, I’m sure). We’ve implemented a layered security model that is fairly adept at providing both proactive and reactive security measures.

Of course, as any good architect or developer should do, we’ve noted any mistakes in our design or development phases so we can improve on our next version. We’ve already hit the (re)drawing board on several components and I look forward to the next itteration!
