Late Night @ the Enterprise Library

02-Sep-05 12:56 am EDT Leave a comment Go to comments
I hate niggling little problems that just won’t give up.  My latest headache centers on just how in God’s name one configures the Entperprise Library so that it’s as useful as it promises.  Clearly, using it isn’t for the faint of heart in the end – although the classes are powerful and definitely offer a lot of shortcuts that make data access a lot simpler.  That is – if you can get through the seemingly rough configuraiton phase.
Ok, it’s like 1 a.m. and I shouldn’t be up anymore.  But it’s driving me crazy that something as simple as a connection string might be tripping me up!  Why am I getting authentication errors no matter how many different ways I try to tell the .config file my database server is where I’m telling it?  Documentation!  Yes, more documentation; and more complete documenation.  Put it together people and save some of us on these late night sessions!  The easy stuff should be gettinng a database connection working with your classes!  If that doesn’t happen, the rest is pretty much gonna get tossed aside.
Incidentally – some great late-night review if you’re interested in the Enterprise Library can be found at http://www.pnplive.com where I discovered a treasure-trove of videos, PowerPoint slides to spice up those lunch ‘n learns and other useful materials.
