Hi Guys,

Can we deploy an app bundled with DO4 on Azure?

I'm not talking about having a local DO4 app using Sql Azure as the database.

I'm talking about having a Windows Azure DO4 app using Sql Azure as the database.

Thanks for the quick reply, Alex.

I'll have to try this with the Development Fabric when I get a chance: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd179455.aspx

If you guys happen to test this out, please update me =)

OK, I just tried it out (took about 2 minutes).

There is a *MAJOR BUG!!*

Here is the stack trace:

It works.

Nothing is supposed to work on 1st attempt! You guys should know better! :D

Is there a way to specify in the connection string NOT to trust server certificates, as is the best practice suggested for Azure:

One Answer:

Frankly speaking, we never tried this - i.e. we always run our tests locally. But AFAIK there are no any severe limitations on Azure (by default, roles deployed to Azure run under full trust, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd573355.aspx ).

So you can try, and if there are any issues, we'll be willing to help.

Surely, but near-time probability of this is pretty low. We'll definitely do this if there are any issues, otherwise we'll continue working on our WCF & WPF related samples.

Btw, I just carefully read almost the whole chapter about Azure @ MSDN - so far I really don't see any possible obstacles.

Uff, so I was too late with my previous post ;)

True :) So this was a rare exception :)

Sure it is, as DomainConfiguration allows you to set standard ConnectionString (not ConnectionUrl) property.
