OutputCache in Windows Azure folosind AppFabric.Cache

In post-ul anterior am vorbit despre cum putem sa ne definim propriul nostru mecanism de cache-ing. Dar daca ne aflam in cloud.
Iata urmatorul scenariu: avem o aplicatie MVC 2 pe Windows Azure si vrem sa putem folosii un mecanism de cache-ing. In cazul in care avem mai multe web roluri dorim sa facem un sistem de cache-ing oarecum centralizat. Nu dorim sa încărcam de doua ori anumite date daca acestea sunt deja incarcate.
O varianta pentru a rezolva aceasta problema este sa ne definim propriul mecanism pentru cache-ing. Nu ar fi foarte complicat, dar ne-ar costa ceva timp. Cea mai simpla varianta este sa folosim mecanismul intern de pe Windows Azure. AppFabric ne ofera si posibilitatea sa facem cache-ing la date. Acest provider de cache-ing se numeste DistributedCache, iar pentru al putea folosi este nevoie sa accesam sectiunea de AppFabric din contul de Windows Azure si sa adaugăm un serviciu.
In web.config-ul aplicatiei trebuie sa adauga o noua sectiune prin care sa putem definii providerul din cloud, iar apoi sa scriem definiția propriu-zisa:
<section name="distributedCache"
allowLocation="true" allowDefinition="Everywhere"/>
<distributedCache deployment="Simple">
<host name="" cachePort="80" />
<securityProperties mode="Message">
<messageSecurity authorizationInfo="43423423DFJF2rf32f23f23f233gt23f3f3">
Tot ce mai este nevoie este sa adaugam in sectiunea de cache-ing definitia noastra de provider:
<outputCache defaultProvider="DistributedCacheProvider" >
<add name="DistributedCacheProvider"
cacheName="cacheOne" />
Din acest moment aplicatia noastra o sa poata folosi cache-ing pe care Windows Azure il pune la dispozitie prin intermediul AppFabric. Pentru acest lucru aveti nevoie nu doar de un cont de Windows Azure ci si de un service namespace pe AppFabric, care nu este gratis.

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&#…

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:

Run native .NET application in Docker (.NET Framework 4.6.2)

The main scope of this post is to see how we can run a legacy application written in .NET Framework in Docker.

First of all, let’s define what is a legacy application in our context. By a legacy application we understand an application that runs .NET Framework 3.5 or higher in a production environment where we don’t have any more the people or documentation that would help us to understand what is happening behind the scene.
In this scenarios, you might want to migrate the current solution from a standard environment to Docker. There are many advantages for such a migration, like:

Continuous DeploymentTestingIsolationSecurity at container levelVersioning ControlEnvironment Standardization
Until now, we didn’t had the possibility to run a .NET application in Docker. With .NET Core, there was support for .NET Core in Docker, but migration from a full .NET framework to .NET Core can be costly and even impossible. Not only because of lack of features, but also because once you…
