Visual Studio 2010 extensions

Zilele acestea am fost constrans de un upgrade la OS care mi-a omorat masina sa instalez de la 0 toate aplicatiile. Mai jos o sa gasiti lista de extensii pentru Visual Studio 2010 pe care le folosesc:
  • Code alligment - il folosesc cand am nevoie sa aliniez codul dupa un anumit caracter( de exemplu cand trebuie sa aliniez cateva linii de cod dupa '=').
  • Indent Guides - traseaza linii verticale pentru fiecare nivel de intentare in parte.
  • PowerCommands for Visual Studio 2010 -  mai multe comenzi pe partea de management la proiecte si soluții.
  • Productivity Power Tool - cel mai mare plus care l-a adus pentru mine a fost fereastra de add/remove references.
  • Spell Checker - face check la spelling pentru string-uri, comnent-uri si plain text.
  • VSCommands 2010 - coloreaza diferit codul scris iar cand dam click dreapta pe un fiser/director/proiect/solutie ne ofera noi functionalitati precum: deschidere CMD cu path-ul setat in directorul curent, copy class, copy full path etc.


  1. By default Visual Studio nu exista pentru mine fara Resharper. Este ca sarea in paine. :-)

  2. De ar intelege asta si cei ce platesc pentru licente in firme, ce bine ar fi.. :)

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:

TeamCity.NET 4.51EF 6.0.2VS2013

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…

GET call of REST API that contains '/'-slash character in the value of a parameter

Let’s assume that we have the following scenario: I have a public HTTP endpoint and I need to post some content using GET command. One of the parameters contains special characters like “\” and “/”. If the endpoint is an ApiController than you may have problems if you encode the parameter using the http encoder.
using (var httpClient = new HttpClient()) { httpClient.BaseAddress = baseUrl; Task<HttpResponseMessage> response = httpClient.GetAsync(string.Format("api/foo/{0}", "qwert/qwerqwer"))); response.Wait(); response.Result.EnsureSuccessStatusCode(); } One possible solution would be to encode the query parameter using UrlTokenEncode method of HttpServerUtility class and GetBytes method ofUTF8. In this way you would get the array of bytes of the parameter and encode them as a url token.
The following code show to you how you could write the encode and decode methods.
