MSTEST - CollectionAssert

In orice proiect ar trebuii sa existe unit teste. In general, pentru validare, fiecare test poate sa contina Assert-uri de forma:
In cazul in care este nevoie sa validam o lista, folosim un foreach sau orice mod de a itera o lista:
foreach(var item in result.Items)
.NET ne pune la dispoztie pe langa Assert si clasa CollectionAssert, prin intermediul careia putem sa validam o colectie. Mai jos o sa trec peste cateva metode care mi s-au parut mai importante:
  • CollectionAssert.AreNotNull - verifica ca toate elementele din colectie sa nu fie NULL
  • CollectionAssert.AllItemsAreInstancesOfType - verifica daca toate elementele din colectie sunt de un anumit tip( tipul poate sa fie si o interfata)
  • CollectionAssert.AllItemsAreUnique - verifica daca toate elementele din colectie sunt diferite( fiecare element din colectie se compara cu restul folosind metoda Equal). Optional se poate specifica un IComparer pentru a se face o comparatie custom.
  • CollectionAssert.AreEqual - Verifica daca doua colectii sunt egale( din nou metoda Equal este folosita)
  • CollectionAssert.AreEquivalent - Este asemanator cu AreEqual, dar elementele pot sa apara in orice ordine. De exemplu doua colectii o sa fie echivalente daca au acelasi numar de elemente si fiecare element din prima colectie este egal cu un element din a doua colectie.
  • CollectionAssert.Contains - verifica daca o colectie contine un anumit element
  • CollectionAssert.IsSubsetOf - verifica ca prima colectie este o submultime a celei de a doua colectie
Mai jos gasitit un exemplu care verifica ca doua colectii sunt egale:
HashSet<string> collectionOne = new HashSet<string>(){"A","B"};
HashSet<string> CollectionTwo = new HashSet<string>(){"B","A"};
CollectionAssert.AreEquivalent(collectionOne, collectionTwo);
Este bine de stiut ca fiecare din aceaste metode are si echivalentul pentru negatie. Pentru mai multe informatii puteti accesa:


  1. Ar fi frumos daca unit testing-ul nu ar mai fi 2nd hand citizen, si MS ar face niste upgrade-uri la el, gen support pentru lamba.
    Un candidat excepent ar fi chiar partea de collection assert unde uneori ai nevoie sa ai niste reguli de echivalenta "custom".

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:

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…
