Ordonare in sens invers - generic

Era nevoie sa implementez un mecanism de ordonare. Deoarece existau mai multe tipuri de ordonare pe acelasi obiect, am ales sa folosesc IComparer.
IComparer este un mecanism de comparare extern. Implementarea functiei care face compararea nu este in interiorul obiectului, asa cum este in cazul IComparable. Se foloseste de obicei cand modul in care se face comparatie nu este naturala.
Cand se implementeaza interfata IComparer, este nevoie sa implementam metoda int Compare(T obj1,T obj2), care returneaza o valorea
  • pozitiva daca obj1 > obj2;
  • negativa daca obj1 <>
  • zero daca obj1 = obj2;
Pana aici nu apare nici o problema. Dar daca avem nevoie sa putem face si o ordonare inversa( reverse), apar probleme. Nu neaparat la modul de implementare, putem foarte usor sa ne folosim de operatorul de negare !, ci la modul in care facem implementarea. Am cautat un mecanism de ordonare in sens invers, care sa fie cat mai generic.
Solutia pe care o propun este urmatoarea:
public class ComparerReverse<T>: IComparer<T>
where T: class
//Stocam implementarea deja existenta.
private readonly IComparer<T> _comparer;

public ComparerReverse(IComparer<T> comparer)
_comparer = comparer;

public int Compare(T obj1,T obj2)
//Apelam Compare de la implementarea de baza, cu cei doi parametri inversati.
return _comparer.Compare(obj2,obj1);
Prin solutia propusa nu mai este nevoie sa folosim operatorul de negare ! si putem sa folosim aceiasi apelare pentru ambele sensuri de ordonare:
IComparer<T> comparerUsa=crescator
?new UsaComparare()
:new ComparerReverse(new UsaComparare());
Urmatorul pas este sa cream un extension method care sa faca ordonarea in sens invers:
public static class ComparerReverseExtension
public static IComparer<T> Reverse<T>(this IComparer<T> comparer)
return new ComparerReverse<T>(comparer);
Folosind acest extension method putem sa inversam modul in care se face comparatia apeland Reverse() direct la IComparer pe care vrem sa il folosim pentru a face ordonarea in sens invers.

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.
