Enterprise Library Configuration Editor Plug-In Uploaded

Oct 3, 2007 at 4:54 PM
I uploaded the Enterprise Library Configuration Editor Plug-In to source code this morning. This allows you to view and manage the Repository Factory configuration section visually as mentioned here:

Repository Factory and Enterprise Library Configuration GUI Designer

The project is called:

Microsoft.Practices.Repository.Configuration.Design.csproj

and has an added dependency to an Enterprise Library Assembly, called:

Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Configuration.Design.dll

which has been added to the Lib folder in the source tree.

The design assembly is an optional assembly for EntLib Configuration Support and not deployed with the application. It will be placed in the same bin directory as other Enterprise Library Assemblies. For example with EntLib 3.1, you will place the following assemblies:

  • Microsoft.Practices.Repository.Configuration.Design.dll
  • Microsoft.Practices.Repository.dll

in the default Enterprise Library 3.1 Binaries Directory

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Enterprise Library 3.1 - May 2007\Bin

This may be different if you chose a custom directory.

If you find any problems or wish to enhance the plug-in, by all means make any changes. Since the Repository Factory generates the Repository Factory Configuration Section for us, I mainly use the plug-in as a way to view the settings from within the Enterprise Library Configuration Editor.

Regards,

Dave
