A choco install list

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/02/03

Sometimes I forget the choco install mnemonics for various tools, so here is a small list below.

Of course you have to start with an administrative command prompt, and have a basic Chocolatey Installation in place.

If you want to clean cruft:

choco install --yes choco-cleaner

Basic install:

choco install --yes 7zip
choco install --yes everything
choco install --yes notepadplusplus
choco install --yes beyondcompare
choco install --yes git.install --params "/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath /NoGitLfs /SChannel /NoAutoCrlf /WindowsTerminal"
choco install --yes hg
choco install --yes sourcetree
choco install --yes sysinternals

For VMs (pic one):

choco install --yes vmware-tools
choco install --yes virtio-drivers

For browsing (not sure yet about Chrome as that one has a non-admin installer as well):

choco install --yes firefox

For file transfer (though be aware that some versions of Filezilla contained adware):

choco install --yes filezilla
choco install --yes winscp

For coding:

choco install --yes vscode
choco install --yes atom

For SQL server:

choco install --yes sql-server-management-studio

For web development / power user:

choco install --yes fiddler

For SOAP and REST:

choco install --yes soapui

If you don’t like manually downloading SequoiaView at gist.github.com/jpluimers/b0df9c2dba49010454ca6df406bc5f3d (e8efd031d667de8a1808d6ea73548d77949e7864.zip):

choco install --yes windirstat

For drawing, image manipulation (paint.net last, as it needs a UI action):

choco install --yes gimp
choco install --yes imagemagick
choco install --yes paint.net

For ISO image mounting in pre Windows 10:

choco install --yes wincdemu

For hard disk management:

choco install --yes hdtune
choco install --yes seatools
choco install --yes speedfan

For Fujitsu ScanSnap scanners (not sure yet this includes PDF support):

choco install --yes scansnapmanager

WSA: Web-Service Addressing

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/08

I don’t do SOAP that often any more, so here some links on it and some notes on how one site used some of the fields:

A few observations from real life:

  • Inside the WS-Addressing realm:
    • Action has a URI indicating what to execute inside the service
    • From is basically abused because it
      1. is not used as a source endpoint but
      2. has an Address element that contains both Action and authentication
    • MessageID uses a uuid: based URI
  • Outside the WS-Addressing realm, in the main SOAP body:
    • Since is implemented using a non ISO-8601 compliant timestamp: it barfs on the second fraction and on the time zone (neither Z nor an offset based time-zone are accepted).

I did not know you could have uuid based URIs, as they are not mentioned here:

But apparently they have been in use for quite a while:

Some free test SOAP web service endpoint sites

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/08

In the past, [WayBack] WebserviceX.NET used to be a great reference for publicly accessible SOAP web-services. Nowadays their listing contains ~2K of entries marked as DISCONTINUED in [WayBack] WebserviceX.NET API catalogue.

So below are a few sites mentioning web-services that have worked for me. No guarantee however they still work (:

Maybe I’m going to provide something myself.

Delphi: TInvokableClassRegistryHelper.GetInterfaceNamespace as the opposite of TInvokableClassRegistry.RegisterInterface

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/09/17

A while ago, I needed the opposite of InvRegistry.RegisterInterface(TypeInfo(MySoapInterfacePortType, 'urn:myURN', 'utf-8');, so instead of registering an interface with a namespace URN, obtain the URN by passing the interface inverting [WayBack] TInvokableClassRegistry.RegisterInterface.

This is the class helper I wrote:

type
  TInvokableClassRegistryHelper = class helper for TInvokableClassRegistry
  public
    function GetInterfaceNamespace(Info: PTypeInfo): string;
  end;

function TInvokableClassRegistryHelper.GetInterfaceNamespace(Info: PTypeInfo): string;
var
  InfoGuid: TGUID;
begin
  // call like `Result := InvRegistry.GetInterfaceNamespace(TypeInfo(MySoapInterfaceType));`
  InfoGuid := GetTypeData(Info)^.Guid; // uses TypInfo; see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8439246/is-it-possible-to-get-the-value-of-a-guid-on-an-interface-using-rtti
  Result := GetNamespaceByGUID(InfoGuid);
end;

It would have been a lot easier if TInvokableClassRegistry.GetIntfIndex has been public, because then [WayBack]TInvokableClassRegistry.GetRegInterfaceEntry could have been used.
