Diferenta intre doua date de tip DateTime

Sunt momente cand avem nevoie sa calculam diferenta a doua date. Pentru a putea calcula aceasta diferenta este nevoie doar sa folosim operatorul "-" intre cele doua date. Obiectul pe care il obtinem este de tip TimeSpan. Pana aici totul este in regula.
Dar ce reprezinta aceasta valorea? Poate sa fie negativa, positiva? Cum obtinem delta intre cele doua?
Obiectul de tip TimeSpan pe care il obtinem reprezinta diferenta intre cele doua date. Aceasta valoare poate sa fie negativa sau pozitiva. Daca apelam propietatiile din TimeSpan care ne returneaza minutele,secundele,... sau numarul total de minute, secunde,... acestea o sa ne returneaza valori negative sau pozitive, depinde de ce valori le comparam.
Daca dorim sa obtinem valoarea pozitiva a acestei diferente, putem sa folosim metoda "Duration()". Aceasta metoda returneaza un TimeSpan cu o valoarea pozitiva, care reprezinta timpul trecut intre cele doua date comparate.
Iata si un exemplu:
    class Program
static void Main(string[] args)
DateTime dateTime1 = DateTime.Now;
DateTime dateTime2 = dateTime1.AddHours(1);

TimeSpan deltadt1dt2 = dateTime1 - dateTime2;
TimeSpan deltadt2dt1 = dateTime2 - dateTime1;

Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime1: {0}", dateTime1));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime2: {0}", dateTime2));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime1-datetime2: {0}", deltadt1dt2));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("datetime2-datetime1: {0}", deltadt2dt1));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Duration of datetime1 - datetime2: {0}",deltadt1dt2.Duration()));
Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Duration of datetime2 - datetime1: {0}", deltadt2dt1.Duration()));

Iar cea ce se afiseaza este:
datetime1: 10/19/2010 11:44:17 PM
datetime2: 10/20/2010 12:44:17 AM
datetime1-datetime2: -01:00:00
datetime2-datetime1: 01:00:00
Duration of datetime1 - datetime2: 01:00:00
Duration of datetime2 - datetime1: 01:00:00
Metoda "Duration()" poate sa fie folosita cu succes in loc sa facem Abs din valorea returnata de o propietate a TimeSpanului obtinut, sau sa facem Abs la Ticks, iar apoi sa generam un nou TimeSpan sau DateTime.

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:

Entity Framework (EF) TransactionScope vs Database.BeginTransaction

In today blog post we will talk a little about a new feature that is available on EF6+ related to Transactions.
Until now, when we had to use transaction we used ‘TransactionScope’. It works great and I would say that is something that is now in our blood.
using (var scope = new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Required)) { using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("...")) { conn.Open(); SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(); sqlCommand.Connection = conn; sqlCommand.CommandText = ... sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery(); ... } scope.Complete(); } Starting with EF6.0 we have a new way to work with transactions. The new approach is based on Database.BeginTransaction(), Database.Rollback(), Database.Commit(). Yes, no more TransactionScope.
In the followi…

GET call of REST API that contains '/'-slash character in the value of a parameter

Let’s assume that we have the following scenario: I have a public HTTP endpoint and I need to post some content using GET command. One of the parameters contains special characters like “\” and “/”. If the endpoint is an ApiController than you may have problems if you encode the parameter using the http encoder.
using (var httpClient = new HttpClient()) { httpClient.BaseAddress = baseUrl; Task<HttpResponseMessage> response = httpClient.GetAsync(string.Format("api/foo/{0}", "qwert/qwerqwer"))); response.Wait(); response.Result.EnsureSuccessStatusCode(); } One possible solution would be to encode the query parameter using UrlTokenEncode method of HttpServerUtility class and GetBytes method ofUTF8. In this way you would get the array of bytes of the parameter and encode them as a url token.
The following code show to you how you could write the encode and decode methods.
