How to change version of our solution assemblies

Am vazut cateva persoane care au ajuns pe blog cautand cum se face versionarea unui assembly. O sa prezint cea mai simpla metoda pentru a putea face versionarea unui proiect.
By default, versiunea unui proiect din solutia noastra poate sa fie gasita in fisierul AssemblyInfo.cs, care se gaseste in Properties. Daca vrem sa schimbam versiunea unui assembly, trebuie sa facem update la atributele AssemblyVersion si AssemblyFileVersion.
[assembly: AssemblyVersion("")]
[assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("")]
Sunt insa momente cand vrem sa controlam versiunea la toate assembly-urile generate de catre solutia noastra. Pentru a putea face schimbarea versiunii dintr-un singur loc, fara sa facem update la fiecare proiect in parte, putem sa extragem aceste doua atribute intr-un fisier separat. Acesta ar avea urmatoarea forma:
using System.Reflection;
[assembly: AssemblyVersion("")]
[assembly: AssemblyFileVersion("")]
Numele la acest fisier de obicei este VersionInfo.cs. In fiecare proiect acesta poate sa fie adaugat ca si fisier link-at la solutie (Add file as link). In acest fel, este nevoie sa modificati intr-un singur loc numele la fisier. Cand se va face build, fiecare assembly o sa fie marcat cu versiunea care este specificata in fisierul nostru.

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.
