Difference between imperative and interrogative code.

There are imperative and interrogative functions and I think they are talking about that. Imperative functions are the one which return a
value while the interrogative functions do not return a value. (More...)

What's the difference between code-based security and role-based security? Which one is better?

Code security is the approach of using permissions and permission sets for a given code to run. Role-based security most of the time involves the code running with the privileges of the current user. Both are equally better. Depending on the deployment type security can be implemented. (More...)

Difference between server-side code and client-side code.

Server-side code executes on server side. Client-side code executes in the client's browser. (More...)

Single line code example and multiple-line code example. (More...)

Describe the difference between inline and code behind - which is best in a loosely coupled solution

ASP.NET supports two modes of page development: Page logic code that is written inside runat="server"> blocks within an .aspx file and dynamically compiled the first time the page is requested on the server. Page logic code that is written within an external class that is compiled prior to deployment on a server and linked ""behind"" the .aspx file at run time. (More...)

What is difference between Code access and role based security?

Code security is the approach of using permissions and permission sets for a given code to run. The admin, for example, can disable running executables off the Internet or restrict access to corporate database to only few applications.

Role security most of the time involves the code running with the privileges of the current user. This way the code cannot supposedly do more harm than mess up a single user account.

Neither is better. It depends on the nature of the application; both code-based and role-based security could be implemented to an extent.

Difference between native code, machine code and assembly code

Native code:- This term is sometimes used in places where machine code (see above) is meant. However, it is also sometimes used to mean unmanaged code. Unmanaged code is the kind of code that requires you to manually allocate and de-allocate memory, sometimes causing memory leaks (when you forget to de-allocate) and sometimes segmentation faults (when you de-allocate too soon).

Machine code:- This is the most well-defined one. It is code that uses the byte-code instructions which your processor (the physical piece of metal that does the actual work) understands and executes directly. All other code must be translated or transformed into machine code before your machine can execute it.

Assembly code:- This term generally refers to the kind of source code people write when they really want to write byte-code. An assembler is a program that turns this source code into real byte-code. It is not a compiler because the transformation is 1-to-1. (More...)

Describe the difference between inline and code behind?

Inline code written alond side the html in a page.Code-behind is a code written in a separate file and referenced by the .aspx page. (More...)

Difference Between Delete and Truncate

.Delete table is a logged operation, so the deletion of each row gets logged in the transaction log, which makes it slow.

. Truncate table also deletes all the rows in a table, but it won't log the deletion of each row, instead it logs the de-allocation of the data pages of the table, which makes it faster. Of course, truncate table cannot be rolled back.

. Truncate table is functionally identical to delete statement with no "where clause" both remove all rows in the table. But truncate table is faster and uses fewer system and transaction log resources than delete.

. Truncate table removes all rows from a table, but the table structure and its columns, constraints, indexes etc., remains as it is.

. In truncate table the counter used by an identity column for new rows is reset to the seed for the column.

. If you want to retain the identity counter, use delete statement instead.

. If you want to remove table definition and its data, use the drop table statement.

. You cannot use truncate table on a table referenced by a foreign key constraint; instead, use delete statement without a where clause. Because truncate table is not logged, it cannot activate a trigger.

. Truncate table may not be used on tables participating in an indexed view. (More...)

Difference between assembly manifest & metadata?

assembly manifest - An integral part of every assembly that renders the assembly self-describing. The assembly manifest contains the assembly's metadata. The manifest establishes the assembly identity, specifies the files that make up the assembly implementation, specifies the types and resources that make up the assembly, itemizes the compile-time dependencies on other assemblies, and specifies the set of permissions required for the assembly to run properly. This information is used at run time to resolve references, enforce version binding policy, and validate the integrity of loaded assemblies. The self-describing nature of assemblies also helps makes zero-impact install and XCOPY deployment feasible.

metadata - Information that describes every element managed by the common language runtime: an assembly, loadable file, type, method, and so on. This can include information required for debugging and garbage collection, as well as security attributes, marshaling data, extended class and member definitions, version binding, and other information required by the runtime. (More...)

What is the managed and unmanaged code in .net?

The .NET Framework provides a run-time environment called the Common Language Runtime, which manages the execution of code and provides services that make the development process easier. Compilers and tools expose the runtime's functionality and enable you to write code that benefits from this managed execution environment. Code that you develop with a language compiler that targets the runtime is called managed code; it benefits from features such as cross-language integration, cross-language exception handling, enhanced security, versioning and deployment support, a simplified model for component interaction, and debugging and profiling services. (More...)

What is the difference between ref & out parameters?

An argument passed to a ref parameter must first be initialized. Compare this to an out parameter, whose argument does not have to be explicitly initialized before being passed to an out parameter. (More...)

What is the difference between a Struct and a Class?

The struct type is suitable for representing lightweight objects such as Point, Rectangle, and Color. Although it is possible to represent a point as a class, a struct is more efficient in some scenarios. For example, if you declare an array of 1000 Point objects, you will allocate additional memory for referencing each object. In this case, the struct is less expensive.

When you create a struct object using the new operator, it gets created and the appropriate constructor is called. Unlike classes, structs can be instantiated without using the new operator. If you do not use new, the fields will remain unassigned and the object cannot be used until all of the fields are initialized.

It is an error to declare a default (parameterless) constructor for a struct. A default constructor is always provided to initialize the struct members to their default values.

It is an error to initialize an instance field in a struct.

There is no inheritance for structs as there is for classes. A struct cannot inherit from another struct or class, and it cannot be the base of a class. Structs, however, inherit from the base class Object. A struct can implement interfaces, and it does that exactly as classes do.

A struct is a value type, while a class is a reference type. (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...)
