Microsoft Enterprise Configuration blovck - 2 applications, 1 conf


I used the microsoft configuration block to store settings for applications
in the past and this worked fine. But now I have the following situation and
I do not know how to solve this:

I want to write a windows service that stores its settings in a xml file
using the configuration block. And I want to write a windows forms
application that manages the service. Stop,start and modify the settings.

So both applications will use the same configuration file. Is this possible
with the microsoft configuration block, and how?

Configuration Application Block
/mswsibsp_append ixa.asp

Design of the Configuration Application Block
The Configuration Application Block was designed to achieve the following

To provide a simple interface for both reading and writing configuration
To insulate applications from the physical storage location of the
configuration data
To provide an extensible model that allows for custom storage locations and
the run-time representation of configuration settings
Design Highlights

Because by default the Configuration Application Block know where to store
the data.
The Configuration Application Block includes one provider that supports
this interface, XmlFileStorageP rovider, which reads and writes
configuration data to an XML file.
If you wants to customize the behavior, you need to write your own Storage
Provider, so that you can make the two application which call the same
storage provider to negotiate about how the sync the data from two
applications, e.g, you can make them store data in the same databse so that
there is only one copy of data.

For detailed implement, please check the source code of
XmlFileStorageP rovider in the Configuration Application Block.

Hi I'm busy migrating code from the June 2005 Enterprise Library edition to the January 2006 edition. One of the cool things about the June 2005 edition (for me, in any case) was the fact that I could specify a location for a single configuration file which would hold all my connection information for multiple applications. Due to the fact that I work in a large environment with many applications accessing multiple databases, this was...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
