New debugging functionalities in Visual Studio 2012

Continui seria de posturi (1, 2, 3) cu noile functionalitati de debug din Visual Studio 2012. In acest post o sa vorbim despre ce a adus nou Visual Studio 2012 pe partea de debug.
In cazul in care lucrati cu aplicatii web in noul Visual Studio o sa vedeti ca langa butonul de Debug a aparut o lista cu browerele sub care doriti sa rulati aplicatia. Acest feature este destul de util, mai ales ca nu mai este nevoie sa ne instalam tot felul de plugin-uri care faceau acest lucru.
 Tot acest buton ne permite sa rulam sa pornim cu un sigur click aplicatia noastra in mai multe browsere. Pentru acest lucru este nevoie sa dati click pe "Browse With...". In aceasta locatie puteti selectati mai multe browesere pe care sa le setati ca default. In cazul in care doriti puteti seta si dimensiunea ferestrei.
O alta noua functionalitate este pe partea de profiling, care ne permite sa identificam zonele de cod lente. Aceasta suporta in momentul de fata si Metro Applications. Partea de profiling putea sa fie gasitia si pe Visual Studio 2010.
Pe partea de UI, apare o noua functionalitate care ne permite sa  facem debug pe partea de UI. Nu neaparat debug, ci mai degraba o diagnosticare a UI care ne permite sa vedem din ce cauza unele elemente se afiseaza gresit. Din pacate nu am reusit sa pornesc acest tool pe masina mea.
 Cam astea ar fi legat de noile funcÈ›ionalitati de debug din Visual Studio 2012 pe care le-am gasit si care mi s-au parut importante. Pe partea de profiling au aparut noi functionalitati care ne ajuta pe partea de debug, dar nu sunt legate de actiune de debug propriu-zisa.  Voi ati gasit si altele?

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.
