A great RSS Feed Reader…

Recently I found out that I was missing out on one of the newest and best sources of information on the web… Blogs.  Not really Blogs as much as RSS feeds.  There were a few different Blogs that I would visit from time to time (and some daily, like Aspose : ) … however, that was about the extent of my Blog experience.  I’d seen the catchy little, orange RSS icons (and subscribe links)… even clicked on a few and… Continue Reading

Childish Exception

When working on Aspose.Word.Viewer (under .NET 1.1), I suddenly got a System.ArgumentException. The “bad” line looked harmlessly:

Brush brush = pen.Brush;

The error message was: You may not change this Pen because it does not belong to you. The wording of the message was strange. What did I have to do to own that Pen and how could I change that Pen by reading its property?

Since the MSDN library knew nothing about exceptions that might be thrown when accessing Pen.Brush, I searched the Internet. The … Continue Reading

Backing Up Aspose.Word Files

I’ve been trying to find a good backup utility for our development environment for long time. I wanted to backup to DVD because it is great in terms of storage space, price and availability. I was trying various programs found by googling, but all to unsatisfactory results. Some were crashing, some did not handle many files well, took hours just counting the files. Some were full of adware.

Today is a great day because I ended up using Firestreamer-RM (Removable Media) from Cristalink … Continue Reading

Unit Tests – The Secret of Quality

Before I joined the Aspose Auckland team, I didn’t consider unit testing to be somewhat important or, furthermore, necessary for development. Indeed, the usefulness of unit tests is not too obvious at first glance, especially if the project is not so big. We have to write significant amounts of extra code thus expending extra time and efforts… are there any benefits actually?

Well, unit testing proved to be very important when developing projects consisting of more than several simple classes. … Continue Reading
