Building Azure Mobile Service App – 1st Part

Hi Friends,

In this segment we’ll talk about creating mobile service in the cloud and then using the same in our App. During the course we’ll use bunch of different kinds of technologies. We’ll talk about these technologies individually once we progress along the path. So, without wasting time 1st let’s go ahead and create Mobile service in Azure. As you can see I’m in the Azure portal

8th

where in currently i am not having any mobile service created. I’ll go ahead and create this link as shown below and create new mobile service.

9th

10th

11th

12th

Now, let’s go ahead and explore the service. So, here a framework has been installed on the IIS server hosted on windows azure which connects to the backend server. This provided REST based endpoints which means by using this REST endpoint we can perform some operation. As you can see below in the screen shot, our service is created and with manage keys option i can go ahead and off-course and associate key with this service.

13th

14th

Now, let’s have a look at the dashboard for the service. This is essentially a very usual dashboard we have used earlier with Azure.

15th

we’ll be exploring more this dashboard later. But, for now let’s look at the DB section which is also created with this service.

16th

17th

Now, let’s look at the dashboard of the db server. Here, you can get all the performance related parameters and also connection string for connecting to the database.

18th

Now, let’s open SQL Server management studio and connect to the database what we created in Azure. However, while connecting to the azure portal via SSMS; firewall may obstruct connection to happen as shown below.

21th

In order to fix the same, you can go back to the azure portal click on manage server and include your IP in the trusted IP List.

22nd

Once that is done, you can go ahead and login via SSMS as shown below

20th

As you can see below in the screen shot, currently no table is created here.

23rd

you can also login online SSL management portal.

24th

25th

Now, let’s go to mobile service dashboard and click on windows project as shown below and then download the starter app.

26th

With this i would like to wrap this session. In the next session, we’ll explore the app which we have downloaded from Azure and will do some really cool stuff with that. Till then stay tuned and Happy Coding.

Thanks,

How to enable Spartan Browser in Windows 10?

Hi Friends,

I just installed Windows 10 on my 2ndry machine. And to my surprise when I installed the same; I was expecting new Microsoft Browser by default; unfortunately this was not there. But, when I delved around Spartan documentation; I found the trick to enable the same.

Steps to enable Spartan(Microsoft Edge) on Windows 10 preview.

    Type this “about:flags” in IE browser. This will open the following set of commands in the browser.
    1st

    Then, select “Enabled” under “Enable Experimental Web Platform Features,” and restart the browser.

    After doing above settings, you need to restart the PC to sync the settings. Once you restart, you will notice project Spartan logo on start screen which you can apply to taskbar as well as shown below.
