    Re: Companies Using .NET

    I'm guessing a lot of people might be in the same situation we are in. We
    just completed a .NET site for an investment company. They don't want any
    information revealed about the technology used. It gives hackers a slight
    head start.

    Re: Companies Using .NET

    dug up this old (dec 2000) informationweek article archived at--

    http://www.merchandisingavenue.com/news120400.html ---
    remember they are talking about Beta 1 here-

    "One of the most aggressive early .Net adopters is Merchandising Avenue. In
    just 11 weeks with 10 developers, the online merchandising service went from
    requirements to deployment of a Web application built entirely on .Net,
    including the time it took to get the development team up to speed."

    "Compared to developing the same applications in current versions of ASP,
    Merchandising Avenue has seen a 20-to-1 reduction in the lines of code
    required because so much of the necessary infrastructure is built into .Net.
    So far, it's taking about the same time to develop projects, but the
    application is easier to maintain with fewer lines of code. The shared data
    sets of ActiveX Data Objects, which are an integral part of .Net, are
    providing some of the development efficiencies as well as improved
    performance."

    "Development was taking the same amount of time because of the learn-ing
    curve, but with the fewer lines of code and being virtually forced to use
    good, object-oriented design, members decided to continue with .Net. It's a
    decision they haven't regretted."

    Oct 17, 2001:

    "MERCHANDISING AVENUE OPENS $5 MILLION FINANCING ROUND
    The company has created a very efficient engine based on Microsoft .NET that
    allows contextual merchandising to be done with very little human effort."

    Bill,

    If this is a public site, wouldn't a hacker see the .aspx extension and it
    figure out right quick... If there is no way they can see that it's a aspx
    extension, the can certainly tell by the HTML code ASP.NET generates, it
    has it's own thumbprint.

    Just FYI...

    Thanks Bill - I'm familiar with the configuration section your speaking of,
    that seens like a good use for it. I hate to press you for more information
    on this because your situation might be sensitive, but do you think ASP.NET
    leaves a thumbprint in the HTML it generates? One could easly look for viewstate,
    generated client validation scripts or common linked scripts (used by validator
    controls) in the HTML that could be a dead give away.

    I'm certainly not arguing about your methods, I'm just curious how far one
    can go to hide the web servers implementation.

    Thanks again

    Yes, the wave of things to come, guess it doesn't eliminate all the bugs
    though....went to www.buyersonline.com (click on long distance plan details

    Yep, I know, no silver bullets, sometimes it seems like that needs to be
    pointed out (perhaps not <g>).

    It does make more interesting reading than the old 500 server error though,
    eh?

    We always use htm extensions, regardless of the back end technology. With

    Re: Companies Using .NET


    Just remembered another one.
    Accenture, an e-consulting spin-off of a big-5 (or 6, or 4), works exclusively
    with Microsoft technology and very close with MS itself. Their revenues hit
    11 1/2 billion, and they have roughly 75000 employees with a presence in
    46 countries.
    They recently announced a switch to .NET.
    This means that their clients (several hundred at the moment, including big
    names like DuPont) will be using .NET, though perhaps not all directly.

    Re: Companies Using .NET

    Sure, all you have to do is opne the html, but thats one tiny step more than
    seeing ".aspx".

    I suspect another reason corporate customers prefer .htm extestions is that
    it tells technically illiterate but vocal critics (such as writers for
    eWeek, for example) which supplier (e.g. Microsoft) you are aligned with.

    With plain asp, you could completely hide the fact the a page was not static
    html. If you use webform controls, that would require more extensively
    reworking the html - tags an some keywords like VIEWSTATE, but I gues it
    would be possible if you really needed it. wizard idea?

    No, not at all. There still aren't any jobs for .Net,
    so I have little interest. Java was the same way,
    it wasn't viable for three years. That's a long
    time between meal tickets.

    So far, .Net is looking pretty similiar to Delphi. A
    big splash when it came out, several "big name"
    companies doing projects with the beta...

    but in the end, Delphi never achieved a critical mass.

    Well, I am not too sure about the "aren't any jobs" part. My wife used to be
    a technical recruiter and still talks to and visits them on their forums and
    various job boards. From what she can gather, the jobs have picked up quite
    a bit over the last month or two.

    It could be rather interesting to see how it pans out. I can say this much,
    unlike Delphi, this one has every nich in this wild and crazy tech market
    buzzing, especially the Linux folk. Not saying that this is good or bad but
    it means that people are paying attention and if it starts to show signs of
    success, I personally believe people will jump on the band wagon which will
    only cause the snowball to roll faster.

    Take it for what it's worth...

    Re: Companies Using .NET


    for whatever it is worth (maybe 2-cents, if you are lucky), the BIGGEST problem
    with Delphi was that the underlying language was PASCAL, which is "used"
    by about as many people as use "sanscrit" as their first language (actually
    not quite THAT bad, but you get the idea).
