Most likely I’ll end up posting again on this issue but I just wanted to capture some of the fun I’ve had recently with getting a .NET WebForms application to work as a portlet in Oracle WebCenter using the Web Control Consumer.
Well decided to move from kenhendersonjr.com to the new whilerandom.com domain when my contract with my previous hosting company was up. While I was at it the look and feel got tweaked to a new theme. Enjoy, let me know if you run into problems with missing content.
On of the limitations with the work that I do is that we are typically 1 to 2 versions behind the latest .NET framework that’s been released. This can make using open source projects a challenge sometimes. Lately I’ve started working on a ASP.NET web forms application that is using a MVP architecture. The other projects that my group has been working on use this pattern and a fairly simple, in-line constructor dependency injection. I really wanted to wire things together using an IOC framework rather than the way they have been doing things. I settled on Ninject and then started doing battle with the code, quickly I noticed that while it supports .NET 3.5 quite a few of the latest features, especially if you use NuGet to set it up requires a newer framework. The code and verbage below describe what I did to get this working in .NET 3.5.
