Enterprise Library / Unity vNext

Greetings!

This is a public forum for you to suggest/vote on the ideas for future capabilities/updates to Enterprise Library and Unity.

Please note the list may not always represent the actual prioritized backlog of the development team.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Get rid of the Logging and ExceptionHandling Application Blocks

    For a long time I have felt that the Entlib logging and other logging frameworks like Log4Net, have been going in the wrong direction and worse have allowed the actual MS Framework guys to rest on their laurels. We should not need to log exceptions, the .NET framework should automatically do it for us. We should not have to add tracing statements to capture method calls and parameters being passed in, the Framework should do it for us.
    Then a couple of years ago we started using AviCode, and it turns out that this is true, Avicode is able to…

    • RollingFileTraceListener should have option to put column headers

      Using the RollingFileTraceListener we write a CSV file (in our production environment).

      It would be useful for us if the CSV files had column headers. This option is not available I believe in the current framework.

        • add bulk updates in the Database Logging Tracelistener

          The database TraceListener is great for logging up to a certain point, but beyond that it runs out of capacity somewhat. If one was able to send updates in batches to the logging database instead of having to call the stored procedure line by line I think it would increase throughput considerably for relatively little effort.

          • Syslog support

            This is a mandatory support that needs to exist in any logging provider. This is because of two reasons

            1) There is nothing called complete windows eco system today in eneterprise. In fact there are systems running on Linux, mobiles and windows application. When it comes to logging we need a standard method, so that we can use a unified log viewer to analyze the same.

            2) The second scenario is that logging as service is catching up fast. These services generally has support for Syslog protocol.

            Hence we need to make Syslogs a first class citizen in Entlib logging…

            • ActivationException occurs when resolving LogWriter from container

              The bug http://entlib.codeplex.com/workitem/32970 tracks the problem.

              The discussion where I posted the problem is available at - http://entlib.codeplex.com/discussions/389044

              This results in reliability issues in our production code. Hence it should be an important issue to fix IMHO.
