.NET: IHostedService – hosting services inside any .NET process

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/31

Have any service related stuff implement IHostedService, so it is easy to deploy it in all kinds of processes:

  • console to test
  • windows service
  • ASP.NET Core service
  • Linux host application

Peter Groenewegen ([WayBackpgroene (Peter Groenewegen) · GitHub; [WayBack] { Think Rethink }) has some great examples and blog articles at [WayBack] IHostedService – { Think Rethink }:

Before using the PPL, I need to check to see if a few things have been fixed yet

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/31

Before using the PPL ever, I need to check out at least a few posts like these:

Most of the PPL code was written by Allen Bauer when he was Chief Scientist at Embarcadero in the 2007-2010 time frame and it was still called DPL (Delphi Parallel Library). The code was released in Delphi XE7 (see [Archive.isUsing the Parallel Programming Library – RAD Studio) but seems hardly maintained after he left.

You can find some of his notes at [Archive.isThe Oracle at Delphi: Parallel Programming

SQL code smells

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/31

A while back I bumped into [WayBack] SQL Code Smells – Simple Talk, which is an extensive article covering all sorts of SQL related code smells.

It reminds me that one day I need to dig up some old links on other code smells as well.

Public database servers

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/30

I could not find any vendors/architectures have public database servers.

So there is no good way to go beyond SQLFiddle (of which I wrote before in SQL Fiddle | A tool for easy online testing and sharing of database problems and their solutions and David Rodriguez: a few nice posts on SQL (via: Google+)), that does not provide database access, but allows you to fire SQL statements onto these architectures:

  • MySQL 5.6
  • Oracle 11g R2
  • PostgreSQL 9.6
  • PostgreSQL 9.3
  • SQLite (WebSQL)
  • SQLite (SQL.js)
  • MS SQL Server 2017

I get the thing (it is very hard to secure an “over the internet” connection to a database server; do NOT do this: [WayBack] connectivity – Connect to SQL Server over Internet – Database Administrators Stack Exchange), so the alternative is to run locally.

If you run locally, there are plenty of example/demo database, like:

Dixin’s Blog – Use Fiddler with Node.js

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/10/30

[] Dixin’s Blog – Use Fiddler with Node.js Fiddler is an useful HTTP proxy debugger on Windows. It would be nice if it can work with Node.js applications. To do this, just need to proxy Node.js requests through Fiddler… on port 8888.

There is a snippet for it at github/Dixin/CodeSnippets/…/fiddler.js (now moved to [WayBack]…/Blog/Dixin.Nodejs/fiddler.js)

It complements a few posts I’ve written about Fiddler using port 8888 as a proxy before:
