First off, Rocky, I just read about your major event, and I just want to say I wish the best to you. I've learned a lot about n-tier architecture and good practices from you and I really appreciate all you've done and continue to do! And of course, that goes for the rest of the people working on CSLA as well!
Now, to my problemo...
I am trying to convert my web page to MVC5, and I'm seeing that all of the versions of CSLA are at 4.5.40 *except* MVC! This one is still at 4.5.10.
Any idea at when this will be updated?
I have tried just building from source (csla.web.mvc5 4.5.491), but it's still a no-go with the data portal (which was working in my webforms project). It's possible that I am forgetting to configure something properly, but I don't think so. Usually when I get to this point of the dataportal failing, it is because I do not have all the csla assembly versions match.
This is not my forte, so I appreciate any help y'all can give.
Rocky is working on Csla.Web.Mvc5 so this will be available soon.
There is some hurdles in the "less then well documented" new ASP.NET Identity. The old SimpleMembershipProvider has been replaced with ASP.NET Identity.
I'd rather go with ASP.NET MVC4 until the issues with ASP.NET Identity and making this work seamlessly is sorted out if you want to use the CslaIdentity and CslaPricipal for authorization.
If you can accept to use the build-in ASP.NET Identity without customization then pick the modelbinder and other support classes into your own Csla.Web.Mvc5 assembly and go with MVC 5.
Thanks for the update Jonny.
I am actually gearing towards MVC5 specifically because of the new Identity framework. I am finally focusing on the web side of my stuff (outside of Business and Silverlight UI layers) and it looks like Identity is the immediate future for MS SSO capabilities.
For all out there in the interworld, this is now working with the pre-release version of CSLA for MVC5 found at the NuGet Gallery:
btw, if anyone has suggestions on how to use the new-style identity stuff in MVC - specifically how to convert old-style custom membership code like in ProjectTracker to the new model, I'd love the help!
From what I can see, MVC 5 breaks all existing identity code outright, and I can't find a good example of converting a custom membership provider to the new scheme...
If you are still looking for help with implementing the new Identity into CSLA, I'm interested in helping out.
That's wonderful, I'd appreciate some help!
Sorry, I just saw your reply on the forum. I'm still interested in helping out, send me an email and we can get stated. tdyocumATgmail.com.
Just wondering if the implementation of the new ASP.NET Identity 2.0 has been done and if so, is the source and samples available?
