Debug Silverlight application - breakpoint not hit

In cazul in care lucrati cu o aplicatie Silverlight si vreti sa faceti debug s-ar putea sa va treziti nici un brake point nu este atins. Cele mai comune cauze la aceasta probleme sunt:
  • proiectul web care contine XAP nu este setat sa permita debug si la Silverlight. Acest lucru se poate activa in felul urmator: click dreapta pe proiectul web care contine xap-ul. Sub tabul Web in zona de Debuggers, verificati sa fie selectat si Silverlight
  • puteti incerca tot din Properties de pe proiectul web din tab-ul Silverlight Applications sa stergeti link-ul spre proiectul Silverlight si sa il adaugati din nou( in cazul in care nu aveti proiectul adaugat ca si link, checkboxul de la punctul precedent nu o sa fie vizibil
  • verificati ca in browser rulati un url care contine http// si nu file//. Debugul spre linkuri spre local file system este dezactivat
  • nu sunteti atasati la procesul care trebuie( aceasta este o problema a Visual Studio care nu se ataseaza la procesul care trebuie). Pentru a va atasa la proces, cand sunteti in debug este nevoie sa selectati Debug->Attach to Process. Acolo trebuie sa selectati procesul care ruleaza aplicatia voastra( iexplorer.exe, firefox.exe etc)

Daca nici o solutie nu a functionat, atunci puteti incerca sa instalati din nou tool-urile pentru Silverlight, in unele cazuri chiar merge.

In cazul in care vreti sa folosti Firefox, este necesar sa faceti urmatori pasi:

  • Load FireFox
  • Type "about:config" into FF's address bar
  • Accept the warning (if applicable)
  • Search for the entry "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled"
  • Change its value from "true" to "false" (double-click)
  • Restart the browser

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.
