SQL Server v.Next - Data, analytics and artificial intelligence live event - April 19th, 2017

The IT landscape is changing every day. Nowadays it is more usual than ever to talk about data collecting, processing and visualization. If a few years ago we use to talk in TB of data, now PB is a normal data unit.
I remember than 10 years ago having a database that was bigger than 1GB it was acceptable, but not very common for small or medium company size. If we are looking now around us, a database of 20GB is a commodity. Anyone will think the database is to big or you need special hardware for it.
Security became now the biggest concern, where you persist data, what data you persist, who access what data are the questions that you need to face up.
5 years ago if you would say that you want to run SQL Server on Linux... it would be a joke, but look where we are not. We have SQL Server on Linux, we have containers, Docker and we see how Microsoft embrace the open source word.
We are exited to find out more about new features that SQL v.Next is preparing to us. It's not only about Linux support, this is just a small part. Features like:

  • In-memory OLTP
  • Columnstore
  • Always Encrypted
  • Transparent Data Encryption
  • Row-Level Security
  • Dynamic Data Masking

are the big things that are coming.

If you want to find more about this you can join the live event that will take place on April 19th. If you are from Cluj-Napoca, please join our meet-up event to find out what future is reserving to us.

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 http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 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)

Scope
The main scope of this post is to see how we can run a legacy application written in .NET Framework in Docker.

Context
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…
