Propietati de tip array in tabelele din Windows Azure (part 2)

Partea 1
In ultimul meu post am descris trei variante prin care se poate persista o entitate care contine o propietate de tip array( lista) intr-un tabel. Ultima varianta, care la prima vedere pare cea mai buna era folosind DataServiceContext.
Aceasta solutie este viabila, atata timp cat nu trebe sa facem un query direct pe tabel. In acest moment tabelel din Windows Azure nu suporta pe query expresii de genu:
  • Contains
  • Count
  • Select
Din aceasta cauza, daca avem o propietate de tip lista nu o sa putem avea un query de genul:
(item => item.ListaElemente.Contains(id)
Din aceasta cauza, pentru a putea face un astfel de query ar fi nevoie sa incarcam toate elementele din tabel si sa le procesam din cod, cea ce nu tocmai optim.
Dar nici prima varianta nu se poate folosii din pacate( lista sa fie stocata ca si un string cu un caracter despartitor), din cauza ca urmatorul query nu este suportat:
(item => item.ListaElementeSz.Contains(id.ToString())
Nu putem sa avem un query care sa foloseasca metoda Contains() pe string.

Singura varianta ramasa este a 2-a, folosirea unei tabele intermediare .

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.
