IComparer generic - propietatea Default

De obicei cand dorim sa putem compara doua obiecte de acelasi tip folosim IComparar. Aceasta ne pune la dispozitie metoda
int Compare(T x, T y);
Valorea returnata de aceasta metoda poate sa fie:
  • >0 - daca x este mai mare ca y;
  • =0 - daca x este egal cu y;
  • <0 - daca x este mai mic ca y;
In cazul in care una( sau amandoua) din valori, metoda poate sa returneze:
  • >0 - daca y este null;
  • =0 - daca x so y sunt null;
  • <0 - daca x este mai mic ca y;
Dar pentru a putea face aceasta comparatie una din valori trebuie sa fie diferita de null, atlfel o sa avem parte de NullReferenceException. Pentru a putea rezolva aceasta problema putem sa avem ceva de genul:
var valoare = x == null ? ( y == null ? 0 : -1 ) : x.CompareTo(y);
Este necesar sa verificam daca una din valor este null. Valoarea lui y nu trebe sa o verificam obligatoriu, dar cea a lui x trebuie sa o verificam mereu.
Pentru a rezolva acest neajuns, avem la dispozitie propietatea Default pe IComparable. Aceasta va crea automat comparatorul default pentru tipul de data dat. De exemplu daca lucram cu un obiect de tip nullable, putem sa evitam sa facem verificarea descrisa mai sus folosind aceasta propietate:
int? x,y;
// ...
var valoare = Comparar<int?>.Default.Compare(x,y);
Acesta va crea instanta in regim de Singleton, o instanta a clasei Comparer. Tipul de data T pe care il folosim trebuie sa implementeze interfata IComparable.
Aceasta propietate ne poate scapa de grijile de a verifica fiecare element daca este null inainte de a face compararea.

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.
