Cum sa faci deploy din Visual Studio direct in cloud

Visual Studio 2010 ne ofera posibilitatea de a face deploy( publish) la un proiect direct in cloud. Mecanismul prin care se face deploy este asemanator cu cel pentru o solutie web.
Primul pas este sa dam click dreapta pe proiectul care contine rolurile pentru Azure si sa selecta "Publish".
Al doilea pas este selectam "Deploy your Windows Azure project to Windows Azure". O sa avem nevoie sa adaugam credentialele daca acestea nu sunt setate deja. Pentru a putea adauga credentialele avem nevoie sa selectam un certificat( putem sa folosim unul deja existent sau sa generam unul local), iar apoi ID-ul subscripției noastre. Insa aici apare o problema cand vrem sa dam OK. Nu o sa putem sa adaugam credentialele pentru subcriptia noastra pana cand nu inregistram certificatul pe platforma de Windows Azure.
Pentru a inregistra certificatul este nevoie sa il exportam de pe masina noastra folosind tool-ul mmc.exe. Iar apoi este nevoie sa ne logam pe si sa mergem la sectiunea "Managment Certificates" de sub "Hosted Services, Storage Account & CDN". In aceasta locatie este nevoie sa adaugam certificatul pe care l-am exportat cu mmc.exe.
Dupa ce am selectat si credentialele, este nevoie doar sa selectam unde vrem sa facem deployment-ul si ce storage vrem sa folosim.
Atentie, nu uitati sa adaugati acest certificatul pe platforma de Windows Azure.

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:

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.
