Va mai aduceti aminte ca in C++ puteam sa declaram o variabila sa fie constanta, fara a ne face probleme ca un utilizator ii poate schimba valoarea. In C# putem sa facem un lucru asemanator folosindu-ne de readonly.
public class Car
internal readonly int _id;

public Car(int id)
_id = id;
Doar in contructor se va putea initializa field-ul _id. Valoarea acestui camp nu se va putea modifica in nici o locatie din cod. Dar daca in loc de int am aveam o lista, ar aparea probleme. Chiar daca nu se va putea instanta din nou acest camp, continutul acestuia se va putea modifica.
public class Car
internal readonly List<Component> _components;

public Car(List<Component> components)
_components = components;

public class Logan : Car
// ...

public void SomeMethod()
Oricine ar putea sa adauge sau sa stearga elemente din lista. Am avea nevoie de o lista care sa permita doar operatii de read. Pentru acest lucru .NET ne vine in ajutor si ne ofera clasa generica ReadOnlyCollection. Aceasta colectie nu contine metode prin care putem sa adaugam elemente sau sa stergem elemente din lista. Totodata indexer-ul ne permite sa facem doar get si atat.
Orice lista contine metoda AsReadOnly(), care ne returneaza o lista de tip ReadOnlyCollection.
List<int> items = new List<int>(){ 1, 2 ,3};
items[1] = 10;
ReadOnlyCollection<int> itemsReadOnly = items.AsReadOnly();
itemsReadOnly.Add(4); //Eroare la compilare, metoda nu exista;
itemsReadOnly.Remove(1); //Eroare la compilare, metoda nu exista;
itemsReadOnly[1] = 10; //Doar get se poate face;
Chiar daca incercam sa facem apoi o conversie la List, nu o sa putem, .NET ne returneaza o eroare de genul: collection is read-only.
Exemplul dat cu clasa de tip Car, poate sa rescris in forma urmatoare:
public class Car
internal readonly ReadOnlyCollection<Component> _components;

public Car(ReadOnlyCollection<Component> components) //sau public Car(List<Component> components)
_components = components; //sau _components = components.AsReadOnly();

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.
