Define precondition and post-condition to a member function.

Posted By :Shashi Ray     Posted Date :October 22, 2008    Points :10   Category :Others 
Precondition:
A precondition is a condition that must be true on entry to a member function. A class is used correctly if preconditions are never false. An operation is not responsible for doing anything sensible if its precondition fails to hold.
For example, the interface invariants of stack class say nothing about pushing yet another element on a stack that is already full. We say that isful() is a precondition of the push operation.


Post-condition:
A post-condition is a condition that must be true on exit from a member function if the precondition was valid on entry to that function. A class is implemented correctly if post-conditions are never false.
For example, after pushing an element on the stack, we know that isempty() must necessarily hold. This is a post-condition of the push operation.

What is Method Overriding? How to override a function in C#?

  
Use the override modifier to modify a method, a property, an indexer, or an event. An override method provides a new implementation of a member inherited from a base class. The method overridden by an override declaration is known as the overridden base method. The overridden base method must have the same signature as the override method.
You cannot override a non-virtual or static method. The overridden base method must be virtual, abstract, or override. (More...)

Define namespace in C++ ?

  
It is a feature in c++ to minimize name collisions in the global name space. This namespace keyword assigns a distinct name to a library that allows other libraries to use the same identifier names without creating any name collisions. Furthermore, the compiler uses the namespace signature for differentiating the definitions. (More...)

What are the conditions that have to be met for a condition to be an invariant of the class?

  
1.The condition should hold at the end of every constructor.
2.The condition should hold at the end of every mutator (non-const) operation. (More...)

Define the "integrity rules"

  
There are two Integrity rules.
1.Entity Integrity: States that "Primary key cannot have NULL value"

2.Referential Integrity: States that "Foreign Key can be either a NULL value or should be Primary Key value of other relation. (More...)

Difference between a sub and a function.

  
A Sub Procedure is a method will not return a value
-A sub procedure will be defined with a "Sub" keyword
Sub ShowName(ByVal myName As String)
Console.WriteLine("My name is: " & myName)
End Sub
-A function is a method that will return value(s).
-A function will be defined with a "Function" keyword
Function FindSum(ByVal num1 As Integer, ByVal num2 As Integer) As Integer
Dim sum As Integer = num1 + num2
Return sum
End Function (More...)

Difference Between GET and POST methods in HTML

  
Difference Between GET and POST methods

GET:
1) Data is appended to the URL.
2) Data is not secret.
3) It is a single call system
4) Maximum data that can be sent is 256.
5) Data transmission is faster
6) This is the default method for many browsers

POST:
1) Data is appended to the URL.
2) Data is Secret
3) It is a two call system.
4) There is no Limit on the amount of data.That is characters any amount of data can be sent.
5) Data transmission is comparatively slow.
6) No default and should be Explicitly specified. (More...)

Explain Virtual Function in C#.

  
Virtual functions implement the concept of polymorphism are the same as in C#, except that you use the override keyword with the virtual function implementaion in the child class.

The parent class uses the same virtual keyword. Every class that overrides the virtual method will use the override keyword.


class Shape{
public virtual void Draw()
{ Console.WriteLine("Shape.Draw") ; }
}
class Rectangle : Shape{
public override void Draw()
{ Console.WriteLine("Rectangle.Draw"); }
} (More...)

Difference between GET & POST.

  
You would use GET when the request is idempotent, meaning that multiple requests generate the same result. In general use GET to retrieve data from the server, in other words try to change the state on the server with a GET call. Use POST methods anytime you are changing the state on the server with a GET call. In POST you are required to set the content-Type header on the XMLHttpRequest. (More...)

How do I call a member method and pass a primitive type (Value Type) by reference?

  
Use the ref keyword when declaring the parameter of the method, for example:

public bool GetValue( ref int returnValue );

This will pass the numeric by reference.You can modify the value of returnValue within the body of GetValue and it will persist when the method call returns. (More...)

Can I call a Win32 API function from a C# program?

  
Yes, you can.The .NET Framework provides a set of services called Platform Invoke, also known as PInvoke. Refer to the .NET Framework documentation for examples of using PInvoke services. (More...)

Can I post any kind of document in Sharepoint Website?

  
You can post documents in many formats, including .pdf, .htm and .doc. In addition, if you are using Microsoft Office XP, you can save documents directly to your Windows SharePoint Services site. (More...)

What types of files can I upload / post to the SharePoint site?

  
The only files restricted in Sharepoint are those ending with the following extensions: .asa, .asp, .ida, .idc, .idq.Microsoft reserves the right to add additional file types to this listing at any time. Also, no content that violates the terms of service may be uploaded or posted to the site. (More...)

What is COMPOUND CONDITION Syntax?

  
SELECT "COLUMN_NAME" FROM "TABLE_NAME" WHERE "SIMPLE CONDITION" {[AND|OR] "SIMPLE CONDITION"};


Example:
SELECT EMPLOYEE FROM SALARY_TABLE WHERE SALARY > 23000
OR (SALARY < 6000 AND SALARY > 4000) (More...)
