Windows Phone 7.5( Mango) support SQL CE

Windows Phone 7.5( Mango) suporta SQL CE(SQL Compact Edition). Acest feature era de mult timp asteptat. Acuma sa vedem cum se foloseste.
Baza de date poate sa fie pusa in doua locatii:
  1. isolated storage
  2. installation folder
In functie de locatie si de parametrii, stringul de conexiune poate sa aibe urmatoarea forma:
  • Data Source = 'isostore:/MyDB.sdf; - cand baza de date este in isolated storage
  • Data Source = 'isostore:/MyDB.sdf';Password='1234'; - cand baza de date este in folderul unde aplicatia a fost instalata si este encriptata cu parola 1234
La stringul de conexiue putem sa setam si alte valori precum culture-ul( "Culture Identifier") si daca este case sensitive( "Case Sensitive").
Trebuie sa tinem cont ca avem cateva limitari pe Mango cand vrem sa folosim SQL CE:
  • fisierele sdf sunt stocate si deschise din isolation storage
  • daca dorim un mecanism de ORM este nevoie sa folosim LINQ2SQL
  • T-SQL queries nu este suportat( nu putem sa avem tranzactii)
  • o referinta la System.Data.Linq trebuie adaugata
  • pentru definierea modelului in acest moment avem doua optiuni SQLMetal pentru Windows Phone Mango sau code-first. By default nu avem un tool grafic pentru definirea acestor mapari.
  • formatul la string-ul de conexiune este unul specific
Versiune de SQL CE care este suportata este SQL CE 4.0. Se poate lucra direct cu EF 4.1.
Saptamana urmatoare o sa revin cu un exemplu intreg.

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:

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…
