Cat de puternic trebuie sa fie un framework sau o tehnologie ca sa schimbe ceva?

Problema se pune in felul următor: ce trebuie sa contina un framework sau o tehnologie ca sa schimbe ceva si sa fie folosit la scara mare?
Pornim de la cazuri reale:
  • MEF nu a avut un impact foarte mare - este greu sa convingi lumea sa folosesca recomandările tale, mai ales ca in fiecare firma exista deja un framework ajutator;
  • EF nu a avut nici un impact major, NHibernate inca exista( NHibernate este deja un produs matur care a trecut de problema: ce a fost prima data. EF inca nu este un produs matur in totalitate, unele funcționalități inca lipsesc);
  • ASP.NET MVC a batut tot, proiecte de gen MonoRail au fost rase;
  • Prism - o aplicatie care a ajuns la o masa critica si incepe sa fie integrata de catre M$;

Exista proiecte care au nevoie de o masa critica pentru a reuși. De exemplu Oslo Project( cu limbaj M). Un proiect indraznet, in care M$ a investit foarte mult, dar din pacate a fost oprit. Acesta concureaza direct cu EF si nu a ajuns sa fie folosit atat de mult incat sa supraviețuiască.
Un lucru important este ca in ultimul timp M$ face parte din puținele firme care investesc bani in cercetare si vor sa aduca ceva nou pe piata( totul e marketing, dar avem si noi de castigat).

De ce am scris acest articol? Am fost implicat anul trecut într-un proiect care urma sa folosească limbajul M la baza unui DSL si am avut o mare dezamăgire sa aflu ca proiectul Oslo de la M$ a fost întrerupt. Daca s-ar fi ajuns sa se faca o implementare completa a limbajului M, s-ar fi ajuns intr-un moment critic, deoarece acest proiect are in momentul de fata cateva buguri destul de grele.

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:

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…
