Jan. LAC#/SCDN Meeting Details:
Jon Flanders :: Building Native Mobile Apps with HTML5 and jQuery
Synopsis – HTML5 and JQuery are the cool new kids on the block for building Web Applications. People generally prefer native mobile apps over bookmarks in mobile browsers. Why not do both?
In this session youâ€™ll see how you can use a native mobile shell on the popular mobile platforms (iOS, Andriod, and Windows Phone 7) to host an HTML5 application and how to interact with native APIs, handle offline mode, and deal with devices with different resolutions.
Bio – Jon is a member of the technical staff at MCW, where he focuses on connected systems technologies. Jon is most at home spelunking, trying to figure out how things work from the inside out. Jon is the author of RESTful.NET from O’Reilly,as well as Essential ASP for Addison-Wesley, and was a co-author of Mastering Visual Studio.NET for O’Reilly. Jon’s current major interest is helping people to understand the advantages of REST and how REST connects to products like SharePoint 2010. You can read his blog at http://www.rest-ful.net/

Windows always assign a COM port no (like COM2, COM3 etc) every time you connect a USB device like modem, mobile phone or specially serial to USB convertors to system, and this no goes on increasing as every time you connect device windows reserve that port and next time it assign new number.
I recently face some issue because of this, I want to test my new thing magic m5e RFID Reader with BizTalk RFID which is connected to USB of my laptop using a serial to USB convertor, here my system assign a port no COM19, this was a big problem for me as my RFID Device Provider can only access up to COM5 ( it is in pre-beta) so i need to change COM port to less than COM5, when I tried to do that it shows me list of all 19 ports and mentioned in brackets as “in use”, so i need to free all these ports which are locked by system. I searched every where in device manager , control panel no interface is available to do this in windows, then i found a nice solution for this which allow you to free all ports but for this you need to edit registry,
here are the steps which you can use to free all post.
- Click start –> Run –> type regedit and click OK button.
- This will open a Registry editor.
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCOM Name Arbiter
- Now right panel , you can see a key ComDB right click to that key and click modify.
- In value Data section select all and delete reset to Zero ‘0’.
- click OK
- Close Registry editor and then restart your computer. all COM ports are now Free, you may need to reinstall any USB to serial convertor.
Note: It is always good to take back up before deleting any entry from Registry, to take back up for Com Name Arbiter, in left panel right click on COM Name Arbiter and say Export, save with some name and appropriate location.
