Cum putem sincroniza un director cu un blob din cloud.

Ieri am vorbit despre modalitatea prin care una sau mai multe instante de SQL Azure se pot sincroniza.
Astazi o sa incerc sa o ofer o solutie pentru cazul in care un client adauga in mod deconectat date pe blob, pe care noi vrem mai tarziu sa le le sincronizam cu blob-urile din cloud.
Problema: Se da un client care lucreaza cu date din blob-uri in mod deconectat. Se doreste ca la reconectare sa se sincronizeze cele doua storage-uri.
Ati spune simplu, ne apucam sa ne scriem un mecanism prin care sa putem sincroniza cele doua containere de date. Da, e si asta o varianta, dar oare merita sa implementam de la zero acest mecanism. Ati putea spune ca putem vedeam cele doua storage-uri ca si doua directoare si atunci sa folosim un mecanism de sincronizare a directoarelor. Suna bine, dar am o solutie mult mai curata - Microsoft Sync Framework.
Se bazeaza pe idea de a vedea cele doua storage-uri ca si doua directoare( partitii). Folosindu-ne de Microsoft Sync Framework putem sa sincronizam aceste date fara nici o problema.
  FileSyncProvider localfileSyncProvider = new FileSyncProvider(localPathName);
AzureBlobSyncProvider cloudSyncProvider= new AzureBlobSyncProvider(containerName, blobStore);
SyncOrchestrator syncOrchestrator = new SyncOrchestrator();
syncOrchestrator.LocalProvider = localfileSyncProvider;
syncOrchestrator.RemoteProvider = cloudSyncProvider;
syncOrchestrator.Synchronize();
Mai sus am dat un exemplu rudimentar la modul in care se poate face o sincronizare intre un directoru local si un blob folosindu-ne de acest framework. Ce mi-a placut pana acuma este ca nu mai este nevoie sa imi bat capul cum sa detectez modific─ârile. Exista deja implementat un mecanism pentru acest lucru, iar in cazul in care dorim unul custom, putem cu usurinta sa inseram mecanismul nostru propriu.
Zilele astea o sa studiez acest framework si o sa revin cu alte posturi. O prezentare interesanta gasiti aici: http://www.microsoftpdc.com/2009/SVC23

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 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 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…
