How to store an array of booleans in a int

Uneori ajungem sa ne dorim sa stocam intr-un int mai multe valori booleene( de obicei de dragul artei) pentru a salva a avea mesajele care se trimit pe tiava cat mai mici. O solutie pe care o propun este sa folosim BitArray.
Acesta ne permite sa lucram cu biti. Pentru a initializa si seta valoriile unui BitArray trebuie sa scriem urmatorul cod:  
BitArray bits = new BitArray(32); // 32 - numarul de biti pe care il ocupa un int 
bits[0] = true;
bits[31] = false; 
Urmatorul pas este sa convertim un BitArray in int. Acest lucru se face destul de usor cu metoda CopyTo:  
int[] valueConverted = new int[1];
bits.CopyTo(valueConverted,0); // 0 - reprezinta indexul de inceput 
int result = valueConverted[0]; 
In result am obtinut int-ul care contine BitArrat-ul nostru.Pentru a executa procesul invers, sa obtinem un BitArray dintr-un int este nevoie sa apelam metoda statica GetBytes a clasei BitConverter.  
BitArray bits = BitConverter.GetBytes(result); 
Ce alta solutie aveti pentru aceast task?


  1. In functie de context, as folosi Enum-uri decorate cu [Flags]. Sint mult mai intuitive, in ciuda suportului dectul de slab de lucru cu ei in C#. Sincer, nici nu stiam de BitArray. Mersi.

  2. Eh, bitarrays, flags.. :)
    Ne obisnuim lenesi si uitam de un banal
    int bits |= 1 << pos;
    ca sa "stocam" un bit
    si (bits & 1< 0
    ca sa ii aflam valoarea..


  3. Normal, mai sus corect era:
    int bits = 0;
    bits |= 1 << pos;
    if (bits & (1 << pos) != 0) ...

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…
