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".
(thinking…)

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. Lightweight Scheduler / Job coordinator

    A higher level abstraction like you created for the CQRS journey to process commands would be really useful.

    Something with a simple API that:

    * uses queues to activate jobs (service bus, azure, inmemory) or time-based (schedule)
    * that can run in process or in a separate worker
    * leverage TPL to maximize throughput
    * that can scale out to multiple nodes
    * graceful exception handling
    * load/stress tested

        • Entlib Logging for HTML 5 Applications

          In ASP.MVC 4 there's a Template that generates Single Page Applications in Browser. Much more code is running in the browser runtime and the need for Tracing and ErrorLogging is higher in these scenarios. Are there any plans to support HTML 5 Applications that are built with the Single Page Pattern?

          I would like wish to see a similar support that has been built for Silverlight. Especially a centralized LoggingServices that supports ASP.NET, MVC and WCF and accepts JSON LogEntries. A client side javascript library and configuration would help to generate these messages via ajax and send them asynchronously. I…

          • Use claims for authorization checks

            As a developer I want to be able to leverage a ClaimsPrincipal for the authorization checks using the Security Application Block. The claims that are recognized as identity or roles should tie into the authorization providers (AuthorizationRuleProvider and AzManAuthorizationProvider). Currently the AzMan provider seems dependent on Windows identities.

                • Registration by Assembly Scanning

                  * Create a basic attribute called "RegisterType" that you could place on a class, The options I've found most useful are an enum to define it's lifetime manager and addtional type attributes to filter out types you don't want to register, IDisposable etc.
                  * Create an optional attribute that can be put in the assembly to indicate it should be scanned. This is optional but can be helpful for performance reasons.
                  * Create a Unity extension that reads all loaded types (I've found tricks for web applications here) and scans for this attribute and registers matching types.

                  • Provide include semantics for config

                    I would like to extract alias definitions to a centralized config file and reference this from the master app config. See:

                    • 'Topaz' for 'Service Bus for Windows Server'

                      I would recomend to add support of 'Topaz' for 'Service Bus for Windows Server'. It should be fairly easy to do because 'Service Bus for Windows Server' and 'Azure Service Bus' have a common codebase.
