OES vs SUSE vs IDM vs my future sanity

In the past, Novell has indicated that their -primary- platform for
Identity Manager is SUSE Linux.  IDM development on the OES platform was
secondary.  A good example of this philosophy in action was when OES2
SP1 was released on Linux, which created versioning conflicts between
IDM 3.5, eDir 8.8.4, OES, etc.  Since then, eDir version 8.8.5 has been
released which eases the versioning issues and brings solidarity to the
OES and straight-up Linux platforms.  

Can we expect future releases of OES to be in harmony with IDM from now
on, or is it likely that versioning issues between the three may
reoccur?  Has there been any philosophical shift in this area,?

We had decided on utilizing non-OES SUSE Linux for IDM boxes, however
licensing issues (it is cheaper for OES) and the recent releases of
OES/eDir are causing us to re-evaluate.

Panel vs PlaceHolder vs UpdatePanel vs ???
I have a need to add controls to a form dynamically.The control type, number, order, properties, etc. will not be known until run time so no controls can be predefined. In general, a source defines which controls must be added to a form, a user will make some entries/selections and submit.On postback, the user's submission will be processed and some controls' property values, perhaps even the controls themselves, will change with the updated results displayed to the user. There are numerous ways to handle dynamic controls.I've considered Panels, Pl...

In development there is always a question which control to choose. I think many developers including myself are not clear on which control should be should for which purposes. Can you pls explain what are the pros and cons of these controls and also why some say that Gridview is a heavy control and repeater is a light control what does that mean. what makes a control heavy and what makes a control light......does it really matter in professional applications  which control you use? kindly throw some light. thanks.

I have VWD Express and I have Visual Studio Standard on my learning/development machine. Is there any reason to use VS over VWD. I think VS may have some deployment features that VWD Express does not, but I could always switch over to VS if I needed. I've used both on the same projects and that hasn't caused me any problems so far. Pros and cons? Thanks. James http://blogs.msdn.com/mikhailarkhipov/archive/2006/06/26/647516.aspx BTW, typica VS license is per user, not per machine, you may be able to use VS on more than one machine - check the EULA.Thanks-----------------------------------...

SQOD: masterpages and VS 2003 vs VS 2005
Hi All, Apologies, I'd delve into this further myself but I'm pressed for time and I know I can find a quick answer via the forums. I have a few basic questions: I'm just starting to look at masterpages as a possible means to apply a common look-n-feel for my (growing) web app. I currently have VS 2003. - is the masterpage functionality available in VS 2003? - do master pages allow css-type positioning? are they the best way to enforce positioning? And, regarding VS 2005 - what are the major differences (iow, is it worth it upgrade now to VS 2005) - what does ...

array vs arraylist vs dropdownlist vs ListBox
I am still learning a lot about asp.net. I have code where I am loading an sqlObjectReader with multiple field records and i am looking at different ways to parse and store the records I get. So, I am thinking that I would like to use the sqlObjectReader.read method, to run through all of the records it has, and to store those records in a different object type. It looks like the dropdownlist, listbox, and arraylist only allow for me to have one item per row, which doesn' t meet what I want. Can I do this with an array ? Or, is there no easy way to add these items dynamically ...

IBS vs. DNN vs. RP vs. PSK
What are the main differences between the IBuySpy, DotNetNuke, Rainbow Portal, and Portal Starter Kit tools? I'm just starting to look at them and don't really want to dig down into each individual one to find its pros/cons. Can someone point me to an existing assessment? I know that DNN is based on IBS (I think Rainbow is, too), but I don't know what was added/changed. Nor do I know how these differ from the starter kit that was released by Microsoft. If anyone can help me out, here, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.Michael Flanakin | Microsoft Consulting Serviceswww.michaelflanakin.com ...

//p vs ($??{ }) vs ...
Let me see if I can translate for you. I hate impasses, especially on stuff I'm using :-) I believe Ilya wants to make a //p option that will postpone regexp interpolation on all variables used in the regexp until match time: $foo = "then"; $re = qr/$foo/p; $foo = "now"; "how now" =~ /$re/ && print "This should match"; With RC1 (which doesn't have //p), you have to write that as: $re = /(??{ $foo})/; Sarathy seems to be a little confused about the interaction between //p and (?{ ... }) blocks.

There is no concept of component. There is no component designer any more....Biggest flaw i found is sqldatasource and...
