[Post Event] ApexVox Cluj-Napoca, 2019

On March 2th, 2019, the first edition of ApexVox conference took place in Cluj-Napoca. It was an interesting experience because it is an event dedicated to .NET developers and .NET stack.
The one-day event, gather 12 speakers from Romania and Europe that talk about different topics related to .NET stack. I was impressed that more than 150 people attended the event and were interested to discover what .NET stack and Microsoft prepare for them. I hope that in the future we will be able to see more events organized by ApexVox for .NET developers.

I had the opportunity to deliver a session where I talked about the message and event-based communication on top of Kubernetes when you write .NET services. You can find below the slides and a few pictures from the event.

Title:
Demystifying messaging communication patterns
Abstract:
Kubernetes together with microservice architecture provides perfect support for the new generation of a software solution. Even so, Kubernetes clusters need no be able to communicate with each other or to integrate with external systems. In this session, we will tackle patterns that can be used to provide a high-redundancy and high-available communication channel, that support the powerful backend provided by Kubernetes. Keywords: Kubernetes, AKS, Service Bus, Redis, KubeMQ.

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:

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.
