Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format wcf on iis.

Cat de cunoscuta vi se pare eroarea aceasta? Prima parte din eroare mi s-a parut foarte cunoscuta in prima faza dar totusi e usor enigmatica.
Problema cea mai mare la acest tip de eroare este ca nu ne spune exact care este cauza. Mai jos o sa gasit trei cazuri comune cand aceasta eroare apare
  • Assembly-ul nu poate fi gasit in locatia data. In funcție de setarile proiectului unu sau mai multe assembly-uri nu se gasesc in locațiile specificate.
  • Unu din assembly-uri este compilat pentru o alta arhitectura de procesor. De exemplu incercam sa rulam 3 proiecte care se refera intre ele. Unul din ele este compilat pentru x86, iar restul proiectelor sunt compilate pe o arhitectura de tip x64.
  • Sunt compilate pe versiuni diferite de .NET. Un assembly este compilat pentru .NET 2.0, iar altul pentru .NET 4.0.
Desii toate cazurile au soluții simple, din cauza ca rulam aplicatia din IIS, o parte din erori sunt vagi si apar doar la runtime.
De exemplu daca avem un assembly care contine un serviciu WCF ce refera un assembly compilat pentru o alta arhitectura de procesor nu o sa avem nici o eroare la compilare. Totul o sa fie bine pana cand o sa apelam un operation contract din serviciu. In momentul respectiv o sa ne trezim cu aceasta eroare si nu o sa stim de unde sa o luam.
Voi in ce alte cazuri ati mai avut aceasta eroare?

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.
