Which system table holds the details of all the processes running on the Microsoft sql server?

I can't seem to find System.Windows.Forms.Integration, where do I find it?

The System.Windows.Forms.Integration namespace is defined in WindowsFormsIntegration.dll which currently ships in the WinFX SDK, not in the standard redist. Therefore, the file will be found in "\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\ Microsoft\Avalon\v2.0.50215?. (More...)

Can we call a base class method without creating instance?

Its possible If its a static method.

Its possible by inheriting from that class also.

Its possible from derived classes using base keyword. (More...)

Difference between type constructor and instance constructor? What is static constructor, when it will be fired? And what is its use?

(Class constructor method is also known as type constructor or type initializer)
Instance constructor is executed when a new instance of type is created and the class constructor is executed after the type is loaded and before any one of the type members is accessed. (It will get executed only 1st time, when we call any static methods/fields in the same class.) Class constructors are used for static field initialization. Only one class constructor per type is permitted, and it cannot use the vararg (variable argument) calling convention. (More...)

What is Private Constructor? and it's use? Can you create instance of a class which has Private Constructor?

When a class declares only private instance constructors, it is not possible for classes outside the program to derive from the class or to directly create instances of it. (Except Nested classes)
Make a constructor private if:

1) You want it to be available only to the class itself. For example, you might have a special constructor used only in the implementation of your class' Clone method.

2) You do not want instances of your component to be created. For example, you may have a class containing nothing but Shared utility functions, and no instance data. Creating instances of the class would waste memory. (More...)

What is type system unification?

The goal of type system unification is to bridge the gap between value types and reference types that exists in most languages. For example, a Stack class can provide Push and Pop methods that take and return object values.

public class Stack
public object Pop() {...}
public void Push(object o) {...}
Because C# has a unified type system, the Stack class can be used with elements of any type, including value types like int. (More...)

What is the common type system (CTS)?

The common type system is a rich type system, built into the Common Language Runtime, that supports the types and operations found in most programming languages. The common type system supports the complete implementation of a wide range of programming languages. (More...)

What is a Database system?

The database and DBMS software together is called as Database system. (More...)

Disadvantage in File Processing System?

1.Data redundancy & inconsistency.
2.Difficult in accessing data.
3.Data isolation.
4.Data integrity.
5.Concurrent access is not possible.
6.Security Problems. (More...)

What is System R? What are its two major subsystems?

System R was designed and developed over a period of 1974-79 at IBM San Jose Research Center. It is a prototype and its purpose was to demonstrate that it is possible to build a Relational System that can be used in a real life environment to solve real life problems, with performance at least comparable to that of existing system.
Its two subsystems are
1.Research Storage
2.System Relational Data System. (More...)
