Taiga.io

A lot of projects use a SCRUM-like approach or Kanban. Using Taiga.io you can create your online whiteboard with lanes, sticky notes, actors and so on. Very handy. You can create one private dashboard for free. Additional dashboards will be publicly accessible in the free edition, but obviously you can get a paid subscription. To…

Open Source Tools

A while ago, I discussed open source software for Windows with a colleague. Multiple sites found. One of them: www.techsupportalert.com with 30 Essential Pieces Of Free (and Open) Software for Windows. Two tools I like to highlight: Freemind. Mind mapping software.

In this case the reusable code uploads files for a Web App or API App to a…

Reverse engineer WSDL via SoapUI

Sometimes you want to reverse engineer a WSDL file from a SoapUI testcase. A good example is where you started with a WCF service without security and then you add transport security with let’s say basic authentication. If you try to retrieve the wsdl now by accessing https://biztalk01/K2W/EenheidService.svc?wsdl via a browser, you might get stuck…

SQL query in Powershell

For security reasons I only had access to the BizTalk Server, not to the SQL Server. I know I can also install SQL Server Management Studio on the BizTalk Server, but there’s another way by using Powershell. First  you will have to install the PowerShell module for SQL Server, that is: SQLPS.  You can download…
