Windows 8 for tables and viruses

Ieri seara am participant la un eveniment unde s-a prezentat si Windows 8. De data asta eram pe partea cealalta a baricadei (ca si participant), dar am vazut ca lumea spune destul de des:
Abia astept sa apara virusi pentru Windows 8.
Din acest punct de vedere, pentru versiunea normala de Windows 8 mai mult ca sigur o sa existe (din pacate), nu avem ce face. Dar pentru Windows 8 RT, versiunea care este destinata tabletelor, s-ar putea sa nu avem surprize nefericite.
In primul rand fiecare aplicatie ruleaza intr-un sandbox si nu poate sa faca foarte multe schimbari. Fiecare aplicatie inainte sa ajunga in store este supusa la niste teste, unde se testeaza cat de sigura este pentru utilizator.
Daca aceste verificari o sa se faca cum trebuie s-ar putea sa nu avem probleme cu aplicatiile. De exemplu pentru Windows Phone 7 nu am auzit de nici o problema de acest gen.
Deja, foarte multe compani care creaza antivirusi pentru Windows, isi pregatesc si ultimele versiuni de soft pentru Windows 8, iar pentru Windows 8 RT sper sa nu avem probleme sau cel putin asa ma astept eu.


  1. Unde ai fost? Pregatesc un blogpost ...

    1. La o prezentare tinuta de una dim companiile IT din Cluj-Napoca

  2. Nu mi-as face mari sperante - cum din cate stiu pe versiunea de Win8 pentru tablets non-ARM se vor putea rula aplicatii normale, non-"metro", malwares vor aparea.
    La fel si pe ARM - daca va exista o posibilitate de side-loading (chiar daca teoretic doar pentru enterprise-stuff), va exista in timp si malware.

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…
