I have been extensively using system.diagnostics’s trace.writeline to log and view using the debug view. Came across this interesting library from Microsoft UK which bridges the gap between system.diagnostics & log4net.
Think of the scenario where trace.writeline value can be used to log to database … I am yet to play with the library.. but here is the link for it in codeplex
A good writeup of it can be found here: http://www.thejoyofcode.com/Introducing_Ukadc_Diagnostics.aspx
Came across Umbrella, a cool set of helper methods again hosted at Codeplex. This is what the author has said in the homepage
"Umbrella is nVentive’s attempt at filling the gaps in the existing .net framework and related technologies; hence reducing friction and increasing the predictability of the api. "
