Serialize SQL objects


Hi there,

** EDIT: I'm using SQL 2008; connecting to a 2005 instnace

Earllier I posted a question about fetching stored procedure, function and assembly definitions from the database. I have been very busy trying to get this to work (and thank you for everyone around here who was willing to help me). I think it will be better if I describe my situation in a little more detail.

Our clients have two options: (1) We provide then with a service managing their system remotely from our offices; or (2) We install our software (the software that we developed which is the same software we use to manage the systems) on site and they can manage the system themselves.

I have been tasked with developing a module within out software suite which we will use to "serialize" the database structure to XML. This XML file can then be sent to a client 10 000 miles away and [s]he can then use it in another [similar] module in the suite, locate the XML file on the local machine and compare their database with ours via the XML file.

So far I have managed to get the tables, columns, relationships, stored procedures and assemblies into the XML file. However, for a couple of days now, I have had much trouble with (1) getting function definitions out of the database to be able to write the into the XML (the same way I did with stored procedures) and (2)

How to Serialize System.Security.Cryptography objects?



I'm creating a solution for a multi-webserver farm that basically receives and stores files for remote users.  The files arrive at our load balancer in small, HTTPS encrypted chunks that can be anywhere from 1k to >1024k in size, and typically represent a fraction of the overall file being received.

After all the chunks have been received, but before storing the file, we create a sha1 hash of the file just sent in by the user.  If it already matches the hash of something in storage, we merely store a pointer to the originally stored file, instead of storing another copy.

(For reasons outside the scope of this discussion, the client is incapable of computing the hash on its own, and must sent the file to the server).


The Problem:

The "chunk-storage" infrastructure is sufficiently distributed that a given stream of chunks can be processed on any number of web servers.  The same is true of the ASP Session variable, which is stored on a SQL cluster in the farm, so any web server can pick up where a prior server's session left off.

The SHA1 computation, however, currently runs after receiving the last chunk of data, which creates an unnecessary I/O spike and delay in deciding whether or not to commit the file to storage or use a pointer:  The whole file is retrieved from stor

Need help with objects and arrays


I have an objuct that I declared like this:

    Class DailyStats
        Dim _day As String
        Dim _hour As String
        Dim _impressions As String
        Dim _clicks As String
        Property Day() As String
                Return _day
            End Get
            Set(ByVal value As String)
                _day = value
            End Set
        End Property
        Property Hour() As String
                Return _hour

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Class which contains an array of objects of type "Class2"



1  Partial Class _Default
2  Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

3 Public Function Ohjoy(ByVal X As Integer) As Integer
4 Dim theClass As New Class1 '= New Class1()
5    theClass.ReSize(0)
6    theClass.myBaby(0).GetName(0) = "Hello" 'Property Chars is read only'
7    Return 1
8 End Function
I have a first class named "Class1". I have a second class named "Class2" Class2, is a member of class 1,
and is implemented as an array of objects of type Class 2.

If I try and call the Accessor GetName() my hard coded value "Hello" in my accessor is not returned? Only
an alpha character like "T"

Also if I try and assigne a value using the setter GetName() it does not work, and the compiler gives me
an error message "property Chars is ReadOnly? Does anyone know what is wrong in my code? Line 6 above


Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
End Sub
End Class

    Dim bs As Integer
    Public myBaby() As Class2
    Public myB As Class2

JIT and Run: Drill Into .NET Framework Internals to See How the CLR Creates Runtime Objects


There's lots to explore in the .NET Framework 2.0, and plenty of digging to be done. If you want to get your hands dirty and learn some of the internals that will carry you through the next few years, you've come to the right place. This article explores CLR internals, including object instance layout, method table layout, method dispatching, interface-based dispatching, and various data structures.

Safety in Windows: Manage Access to Windows Objects with ACLs and the .NET Framework


Until now, Microsoft did not provide explicit support in the .NET Framework for manipulating security settings. With the .NET Framework 1.x, access can only be granted to users via a series of cumbersome P/Invoke calls. By introducing the concepts of security objects and rules, the .NET Framework 2.0 allows developers to manipulate security settings of objects in a few easy steps using managed code. Want to know more? Read on.
