Upgrading a web application to VS 2005

P: n/a
Hi,

I have just used the import Wizard to import a VS 2003 app to VS 2005.

I have a lot of work to do to enable it to compile successfully with all the
errors and warnings it gave me, but as a starting point the compiler can no
longer find the function as at the bottom of this posting, that was in the
Global.asax.vb file.

All the function does is give an easy / quick way of getting the application
path.

My questions are:

1/ Where has all this code gone as the compiler can no longer find it?

2/ Where is the 'Application_AuthenticateRequest' code and other code that
was also in the Global.asax.vb file?

3/ Is there another place that such code is held or should I just add it
back into the app in VS 2005?

4/ Lastly, but not least is there a white paper or other such document that
would guide me through the changes that I have to make to a VS 2003 app to
make it compatible with VS 2005?
Thanks, Mike.

Have you checked the Global.asax file for the missing code from the original
Global.asax.vb file?

Hi Mike,

From your description, after you converting a VBNET web project from VS2003
to VS2005, some page code which refererncing a static function in the
global class can not pass the compilation , yes?

Based on my local test, I put the same "GetApplicationPath" function in my
vb.net projet's global class , then use in a page like:
========
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Response.Write("<br>ApplicationPath: " &
Global.GetApplicationPath(Request))
End Sub
=========
After converting in VS.NET 2005, the above code is converted to:
=========
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Response.Write("<br>ApplicationPath: " &
[Global].GetApplicationPath(Request))

End Sub
============
Which can also get compiled correctly. So what's the detaild code which
reference that function get broken in new 2.0?

In addition, regarding on your questions, here are some of my understanding:

1/ Where has all this code gone as the compiler can no longer find it?
==================
As for ASP.NET 2.0 project in VS.NET 2005, all code files (except the aspx
page's codebehind) will be moved to the App_Code folder (which is used for
dynamic compilation). So I think you can find your Global.asax.vb there.

2/ Where is the 'Application_AuthenticateRequest' code and other code that
was also in the Global.asax.vb file?
==================
The "Application_AuthenticateRequest" function is still there in the
Global.asax.vb file which under the "App_Code" folder.

3/ Is there another place that such code is held or should I just add it
back into the app in VS 2005?
==================
I think that's the "App_Code" folder.

4/ Lastly, but not least is there a white paper or other such document
that
would guide me through the changes that I have to make to a VS 2003 app to
make it compatible with VS 2005?
==================
Basically since VS.NET 2005 IDE is just a tool which simplify our work on
building asp.net 2.0 web application, so the main changes you met should
come from the change from asp.net 1.x to asp.net 2.0. Not sure whether
you've already read some upgrade and migration reference on the MSDN
ASP.NET 2.0 dev center, you can get some useful information there:

Upgrade from ASP.NET 1.x

Steve,

Thanks for replying to my post.

Following the information you gave me, I have now found the missing code -
It is in the App_Code folder as you suggested!

Also I have found the reason for the fact it produced this error when
compiling. The code uses this call in inline code (not originally coded by
me I hasten to add!), i.e.

'<A href="<%= Global.GetApplicationPath(Request) %>/Desk ........'

and the VS 2003 to VS 2005 converter seems to ignore this, and therefore
produces and error when it changes

'Global.App...' to '[Global].App...',

but does not also change the calls from the inline code!

Thanks also for the upgrade reference material. It looks to be just what I
need.

I am sure I will be posting again soon!

;-)
Cheers, Mike.
