Guid.Comb

In ultimele zile am început sa lucrez cu Fluent NHibernate si am descoperit GuidComb. M-am documentat sa vad ce înseamna de fapt. Pe scurt:
One of the better alternatives that i kinda like is the guid.comb strategy. Using regular guids as a primary key value leads to fragmented indexes (due to the randomness of the guid’s value) which leads to bad performance. This is a problem that the guid.comb strategy can solve quite easily for you.
Nu are rost sa traduc și să explic din nou acelasi lucru. O să găsiți pe Google destule materiale. Partea interesanta este modul in care se generează aceste guiduri.
Din cei 32 de biti pe care un guid ii conține, 16 sunt generați in funcție de configurația hardware a mașinii( începînd cu Windows 2000, seria plăcii de rețea nu se mai folosește).
Iar următorii 16 sunt generați in forma următoare:
  • 0-9: se generează pe baza unui uniqueidentifier( depinde de framework);
  • 10-15: pe baza la Datetime;
Acesta este un algoritm de generate de Guid destul de simplu si care isi face treaba foarte bine cînd avem de lucru cu DB. Este foarte folositor mai ales cand trebe sa generam PK. Începînd de la Sql Server 2005 exista Sequential Guid care ii foarte asemănător.
In general se cîștiga un spor de performanta de 25%-30% pe tabele care conține PK ca și guid.In cazul in care tabela pe care lucrați nu are PK, sporul de performanta poate sa fie 0% sau chiar negativ in unele situații. Pentru mai multe informații despre sporul de performanta puteti sa gasiti aici.

PS: Cînd ne ajuta un Guid? Un exemplu este cînd se lucrează cu o aplicația și offline, caz in care la sincronizare nu mai este nevoie de regenerare de PK.

  1. Se pare ca pierderea de performanta e numai daca acel PK are un clustered index, altfel nu.

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.
