Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps


This is one of those simple little utilities that should not be necessary. As much as the Microsoft VC resource editor does, you would think they could have included this functionality. Anyone who has ever worked with SDI or MDI applications knows what a paint creating or editing the document template strings is. When you create a new S/MDI application, VC creates these for you.

Without some editing, the default values are pretty much useless. In fact, I usually forget to change the default values unless I get into file manipulation. I then find myself scanning through the help for CMultiDocTemplate::CMultiDocTemplate() and CDocTemplate::GetDocString().

Enter this handy little utility. Simply follow these steps:

  • Open up the VC resource editor to the resource string for the offending document type.
  • Copy the resource string.
  • Paste it into the your new Document Template String Editor's multi-line edit field.
  • Click the Parse button.
  • Edit the offending fields.
  • Click the build button
  • Copy the multi-line edit's contents.
  • Paste the result back into VC's resource editor.
All of the guess work is gone!
Created with MSVC 6, tested on Windows95 OSR2.
There isn't really anything special to note about the source code!

  • Global data deduplication provides important benefits over traditional deduplication processes because it removes redundant data through entire enterprises, not just single devices. Global deduplication increases the data deduplication ratio — the size of the original data measured against the size of the data store after redundancies are removed. This helps reduce the amount of storage required at a time when businesses face exponential storage growth. This eBook explores the chief benefits of global …
