MVC 3 - UrlParameter.Optional

Zilele astea am inceput sa ma uit peste MVC 3 si sa vad ce a adus nou. S-a scris foarte mult, nu am de gand sa desfac firul in patru cu fiecare lucru aparut in MVC 3. In schimb vreau sa va spun peste ce problema am dat.
In MVC 2 cand se declara un map route - unul sau mai multi parametrii pot sa fie optionali. In acest caz cand se face apelul unei actiuni, acesti parametri pot sa lipseasca.
De exemplu putem sa avem urmatoarea mapare:
routes.MapRoute(
"Drive",
"drive/go/strada/numar"
controller = "Drive",
new
{
action = "Go",
numar = UrlParameter.Optional
bloc = UrlParameter.Optional
});
Antetul actiuni ar avea forma:
public ActionResult Go(string strada, int? numar,int? bloc);
Apelul spre aceste acțiuni am dorii sa fie de forma:
http://localhost/drive/go?strada=Dunarii
http://localhost/drive/go/Dunarii/10/5
http://localhost/drive/go/Dunarii
O sa observam ca pentru prima varianta http://localhost/drive/go?strada=Dunarii maparea pe care noi am declarato nu functioneaza. Aceasta problema apare cand avem doi parametrii optionali.
O solutie pentru aceasta problema este sa mai declaram o nou map route pentru cazul in care nici un parametrul optional nu este setat:
routes.MapRoute(
"Drive",
"drive/go/strada/numar"
controller = "Drive",
new
{
action = "Go",
});

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.
