How To Avoid Storing Different Type Of Objects In The Same Place When Represent The Same But With A Different Data Structure

Jan 14, 2010

This is in my opinion an abstract problem and I hope I can explain it well. I happened to find the same kind of problem in a completely different project and now I have it again and I would like to avoid it if possible.

I'm creating some classes to simplify some tasks for some specific requirements we have in some projects at work.

I have a class that creates objects which maps the values from webcontrols to an object properties similar to this


The problem I have it's sometimes I have to store a non container object in a place (in an object's attribute) and sometimes I have to a store a container object in the same place for storing the values of a webcontrol (a webcontrol can sometimes hold several values like a checkboxlist). I dont like this at all, because some time ago when working in a non commercial compiler, when parsing and generating the intermediate code I had sometimes to store a container in a place, and sometimes I had to store a non container in the same place, and having to ask in other parts of the code if what you are reading is this type of object, or this another type of object, it is something really annoying and it mess up the code. Is there any tips about what it would be better to do to avoid this kind of situations or nothing can be done to avoid it sometimes?

Performance - Directory Structure For Storing Images?

Nov 15, 2010

I'm working on an application which will store around 50.000 images within it's first year and another 75.000 in it's second. Images can come from Galleries, news images, article images and profile images. So I want to give each image a GUID and store the GUID in the database.As for the directory structure i was thinking of something like this:


So I'm using the first 4 characters of the GUID as my directory structure to spread images a bit more evenly between directories. Now I have some questions about this approach:Is it considered good practice to store all different kinds of images together rather then use ~/Images/Upload/Profiles, ~/Images/Upload/Articles etc.I'm also storing thumbnails and they have a different GUID obviously so the thumbs will not be in the same folder as the original and somehow that doesnt give me a good feeling but I guess it should not matter but.Same goes for Galleries, I'm used to store galleries in folders like ~/Images/Upload/Galleries/12 , and now all the images from a gallery will be scattered around in different subfolders, is this a big performance hit?Do you guys have any other ideas for directory structures?

As you can probably see I'm a bit afraid to use this approach but since there will be lots of images maybe even more then the numbers i gave i have to let the control go I think :)

Storing ArrayList Of Different Objects?

Where To Place Code For Session Objects In App

Aug 21, 2010

I am getting a serialization error trying to use Session State Server instead of InProd. However, I can't figure out what is causing the error in session. I was given some code to add to the page to loop through the session object and figure out if each item in it is serializable. My problem is I don't know where to place the code in the ASP.NET page. In tracing through the code, the error just appears after steping through objects outside of the page and not when setting session. There must be some place that I can place the code on the page that is after all session objects are set but before the page will error. Where would that be?

Storing PDF Files As Binary Objects In SQL Server?

Feb 27, 2010

I have to find a design decision for the following task: I have a SQL Server database and it contains a table of orders. PDF documents will be uploaded by users through a simple file upload from a web page and assigned to an order. There is not more than one document per order (perhaps no document, never more than one). For this purpose a user opens a web page, enters an order number, gets the order displayed and clicks on an upload button. So I know to which order the uploaded document belongs to.

Now I am considering two options to store the documents on the web server:

1) Extend my table of orders by a varbinary(MAX) column and store the PDF document directly into that binary field.

2) Save the PDF file in a specific folder on disk and give it a unique name related to the order (for instance my order number which is a primary key in the database, or a GUID which I could store in an additional column of the order table). Perhaps I have to store the files in subfolders, one per month, and store the subfolder name into the order row in the database, to avoid getting too many thousand files in one folder.

After the PDF files are stored they can be downloaded and viewed via browser after entering the related order number.

I'm tending towards option (1) because the data management seems easier to me having all relevant data in one database. But I am a bit afraid that I could encounter performance issues over time since my database size will grow much faster than with solution (2). Around 90% or even 95% of the total database size would be made up only by those stored PDF files.

Here is some additional information:

The PDF files will have a size of around 100 Kilobyte each
Around 1500 orders/PDF files per month
Windows Server 2008 R2 / IIS 7.5
SQL Server 2008 SP1 Express
Not quite sure about the hardware, I believe one QuadCore Proc. and 4 GB RAM
Application is written in ASP.NET Webforms 3.5 SP1

(I am aware that I will reach the 4GB-limit of the SQL Server Express edition after around 2 years with the numbers above. But we can disregard this here, either removing old data from the database or upgrading to a full license will be a possible option.)

My question is: What are the Pro and Contras of the options and what would you recommend? Perhaps someone had a similar task and can report about his experience.

Performance - Which Page Event Is The Best Place For This Type Of Code

Jan 8, 2010

I have a relatively simple page that will do most of its operations on the client side using Javascript or JQuery. However, initially I do need to retrieve some data from the DB server based on QueryString parameters.

I plan on passing this data in the form of a JSON string to the script by an old-fashioned ASP manner ( var severData = <%=MyPublicData %>) block where MyPublicData is defined in CodeBehind as:

Public string MyPublicData;

The question is, which event in the ASP.NET page lifecycle is the best for this? Page_Init ? Page_Load? Also, is it worth the effort to do this in ASP.NET MVC. I did look at this possiblity but it seemed a little too much for a simple page like this where I do more 90% of the work on the client.

Dynamic Data Be Made To Work With Custom Business Objects Rather Than Data Objects?

Feb 24, 2010

I'm working on a project in which we have a database, data layer (entity framework), business layer and web/UI layer.I want to use ASP.NET Dynamic Data for the web layer, but don't want it to access the data layer or database, as I want it to be purely running off business logic, and not directly accessing the data.However, it appears that Dynamic Data only allows Linq-to-SQL or entity framework data sources to be used.Has anyone used it with business-layer objects instead?

Forms Data Controls :: Binding A Repeater To A List Of Objects That Have Child Objects?

Nov 17, 2010

have some Objects, lets say Employee and Role defined as below and I have defined relationships in my database that gives me a list of objects say employees and thanks to my framework each employee object also has a Role object linked via the RoleIDID, UserName, Password, Email, RoleIDRoleID, RoleNameSo in code I can do something like this

Employee emp = dataService_GetEmployeeByID(1);
string RoleName = emp.Role.RoleName;

Now here is my problemI can bind any object in a repeater and it works fine for the first level in my relationship

For instance <%# Eval("UserName") %>

But I need to be able to show the details for my child objects as well (Role) so something like this (which does not work)

<%# Eval("Role.RoleName") %>

VS 2010 - Incorrect Font Type And Sizes As Well As Objects That Are Not Correctly Aligned

May 2, 2013

My published site's pages appear to be unformatted, i.e. incorrect font type and sizes as well as objects that are not correctly aligned and of incorrect width when browsing the site with IE10. On my development platform, Windows 7 Professional using Visual Studio 2010 Professional, running in debug mode and also using IE10 the entire site appears perfectly formatted.

I've already confirmed that all CSS files and the relevant connection strings area correct and ensured that the font being used is installed on the hosting platform.I just used my MacBook and browsed the published web site using IE 9, Chrome and Safari - the site displayed and functioned 100%. I repeated the same test using Safari on iOS and again had perfect results. It thus appears that the problem relates to IE10.

Architecture :: Using Static Methods To Build User Objects And Various Other Objects?

Jun 21, 2010

firstly a static class only ever exists once and is not an instance. Any static members (ie static int NoOfPeople;) is stored in one place and is shared between all sessions (like the old global variables).
Now static methods is where i'm not 100% sure. If I have a static method that doesn't use any other static members could this cause inconstant results, example (this is a fairly pointless method but just a quick example of the top of my head)


So in this example if two sessions (or threads) were to call this at the same time - would they both get back the expected results, because the method only uses private data (a, b and totalToReturn).Im sure this sounds a little simple but I will be using static methods to build user objects and various other objects that there will have to be a 100% garentee that the objects will not get mixed up between sessions and the wrong things return to the user.
