Assembly comun intre mai multe tipuri de proiecte in Visual Studio

Uneori lucram cu proiecte care au assembly-uri atat pe Silverlight cat si solutii clasice .NET. Din pacate un assembly de Silverlight nu se fi adaugat ca si referinta la un proiect normal( sau invers).
O solutie la aceasta problema este sa adaugam fisierele ca si "Add as link" intr-unul din cele doua proiecte. Dar problema apare la compilare, in cazul in care apelam API care nu este suportat de una din platforme si uitam sa compilam fiecare solutie in parte pentru a face aceasta verificare.
Din aceasta cauza ne putem trezii cu neplaceri.
Ar fi frumos sa avem la dispozitie un proiect comun, pe care sa il putem referentia in orice proiect. Aici vine in ajutor Microsoft si ne pune la dispozitie Portable Library Tools.
Din pacate acest lucru trebuia facut in momentul in care au lansat Visual Studio 2010, dar niciodata nu este prea tarziu.
Cu ce ne ajuta acest tool? Avem posibilitatea sa avem un assembly comun intre Silverlight, XNA, Windows Phone, XBox si proiecte .NET clasice. Din pacate nu este perfect, inca se lucreaza la el, dar pana acuma nu am avur probleme cu el.
Dupa instalarea acestuia o sa avem un nou template in lista de proiecte la Visual Studio denumit: Portable Class Library. Acest proiect va putea sa fie adaugat ca referinta in orice alt proiect.

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 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:

Run native .NET application in Docker (.NET Framework 4.6.2)

The main scope of this post is to see how we can run a legacy application written in .NET Framework in Docker.

First of all, let’s define what is a legacy application in our context. By a legacy application we understand an application that runs .NET Framework 3.5 or higher in a production environment where we don’t have any more the people or documentation that would help us to understand what is happening behind the scene.
In this scenarios, you might want to migrate the current solution from a standard environment to Docker. There are many advantages for such a migration, like:

Continuous DeploymentTestingIsolationSecurity at container levelVersioning ControlEnvironment Standardization
Until now, we didn’t had the possibility to run a .NET application in Docker. With .NET Core, there was support for .NET Core in Docker, but migration from a full .NET framework to .NET Core can be costly and even impossible. Not only because of lack of features, but also because once you…
