In ultimele zile am început sa lucrez cu Fluent NHibernate si am descoperit GuidComb. M-am documentat sa vad ce înseamna de fapt. Pe scurt:
One of the better alternatives that i kinda like is the guid.comb strategy. Using regular guids as a primary key value leads to fragmented indexes (due to the randomness of the guid’s value) which leads to bad performance. This is a problem that the guid.comb strategy can solve quite easily for you.
Nu are rost sa traduc și să explic din nou acelasi lucru. O să găsiți pe Google destule materiale. Partea interesanta este modul in care se generează aceste guiduri.
Din cei 32 de biti pe care un guid ii conține, 16 sunt generați in funcție de configurația hardware a mașinii( începînd cu Windows 2000, seria plăcii de rețea nu se mai folosește).
Iar următorii 16 sunt generați in forma următoare:
  • 0-9: se generează pe baza unui uniqueidentifier( depinde de framework);
  • 10-15: pe baza la Datetime;
Acesta este un algoritm de generate de Guid destul de simplu si care isi face treaba foarte bine cînd avem de lucru cu DB. Este foarte folositor mai ales cand trebe sa generam PK. Începînd de la Sql Server 2005 exista Sequential Guid care ii foarte asemănător.
In general se cîștiga un spor de performanta de 25%-30% pe tabele care conține PK ca și guid.In cazul in care tabela pe care lucrați nu are PK, sporul de performanta poate sa fie 0% sau chiar negativ in unele situații. Pentru mai multe informații despre sporul de performanta puteti sa gasiti aici.

PS: Cînd ne ajuta un Guid? Un exemplu este cînd se lucrează cu o aplicația și offline, caz in care la sincronizare nu mai este nevoie de regenerare de PK.


  1. Se pare ca pierderea de performanta e numai daca acel PK are un clustered index, altfel nu.

ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:
threw exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer' registered in the application config file for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded. Make sure that the assembly-qualified name is used and that the assembly is available to the running application. See for more information. at System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DependencyResolution.ProviderServicesFactory.GetInstance(String providerTypeName, String providerInvariantName) This error happened only on the Continuous Integration machine. On the devs machines, everything has fine. The classic problem – on my machine it’s working. The CI has the following configuration:

How to check in AngularJS if a service was register or not

There are cases when you need to check in a service or a controller was register in AngularJS.
For example a valid use case is when you have the same implementation running on multiple application. In this case, you may want to intercept the HTTP provider and add a custom step there. This step don’t needs to run on all the application, only in the one where the service exist and register.
A solution for this case would be to have a flag in the configuration that specify this. In the core you would have an IF that would check the value of this flag.
Another solution is to check if a specific service was register in AngularJS or not. If the service was register that you would execute your own logic.
To check if a service was register or not in AngularJS container you need to call the ‘has’ method of ‘inhector’. It will return TRUE if the service was register.
if ($injector.has('httpInterceptorService')) { $httpProvider.interceptors.push('httpInterceptorService&#…

Fundamental Books of a Software Engineer (version 2018)

More then six years ago I wrote a blog post about fundamental books that any software engineer (developer) should read. Now it is an excellent time to update this list with new entries.

There are 5 different categories of books, that represent the recommended path. For example, you start with Coding books, after that, you read books about Programming, Design and so on.
There are some books about C++ that I recommend not because you shall know C++, only because the concepts that you can learn from it.
