SVN - Copying versioned folders recursively on Windows without .svn folders

System: 
Tags: 

Most of us (I mean developers using SVN as version control system) at some point or the other have needed to copy a versioned folder/folders recursively to another location without those ".svn" directories being copied, right. For me, this is a pretty common task every few weeks when I backup my project files or when I need to sync source files between multiple repos in a highly distributed environment.

Visual Studio - Converting a library project to web application project (WAP)

So it happened that I had a library project in a large solution in Visual Studio 2010 that I now wanted to operate as a Web Application project so I can configure an IIS application for it (it was bascially a bridge project for communication with a third-party library to which I now needed to add HttpHandlers to provide http end-points for interaction with the third-party library).

IIS 7 - 500 Internal Server Error trying to configure a default document in web.config

System: 

I am in the process of deploying an osCommerce site to a Windows 2008/IIS 7 machine as I write this (no point debating the merit of doing so, you really can't fight the management if they have taken a decision and you are not even a part of that particular decision making).

So they want a default document of let's say index.html for their website from where they want to take the user to osCommerce's main index.php based page. And I need to make the appropriate settings in web.config to have this going.

Sencha Touch 2 - CompositeField for Touch

Another post on a Sencha Touch 2 feature that I initially thought was absent in the framework altogether, but was found hidden within its elaborate (and often tricky) source code.

I needed a CompositeField for Touch 2, but having a look at its api documentation, it was no-where to be found. I continued my search into Touch 2's source files as earlier also, I have found classes/components I needed there but without a corresponding mention in the api docs.

Sencha Touch 2 - Menu component for Touch supporting any depth of nested sub-menus

I did some interesting things with Sencha Touch over the last month, and I am going to share some of them in a series of blog posts over the next couple of days. But I am running really short of time. So I would let the code do the talking, and there would be minimal explanations (if any) in the posts themselves on what the code does and how.
