Resources for “Introduction to IoC and Dependency Injection for ASP.NET” Webinar

On Aug 28 2014, we conducted a webinar titled “Introduction to IoC and Dependent Injection in ASP.NET”. This is part of the regular webinars that we i.e. Telerik India do every month. You can see the September/October webinar schedule here.

Slide Deck:

Following is the slide deck that we used as part of the webinar. You can view it online below or you can download to view it at your leisure time:

 

Video:

We record all our webinars so that people who missed attending live can view the recording on demand. Following is the video recording for this webinar:

Demo Source Code:

We had shown two demos as part of this webinar.  It was divided as Part1 & Part 2. Part 1 talked about DI & IoC as a generic concept. Where as Part 2 we took a look at Di & IoC in ASP.NET MVC with Ninject as the container. Find the source code links below:

Part 1:
https://bitbucket.org/abhishekkant/survey-app-di-ioc-demo

Part 2:
http://1drv.ms/1rKBOm2

Q & A:

Q: what is ado.net?
A: You can read about ADO.NET here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/h43ks021(v=vs.110).aspx

Q: is there a ORM by Telerik to access data?
A: Yes we have. It is called Teleik DataAccess – http://www.telerik.com/data-access

Q: what is loosely coupling?
A: two classes are not directly coupled in dependency

Q: There are so many DI you mentioned , what are the most famous and used wide along?
A: NInject , Unity, StructureMap are some of the widely used ones

Q: Does ORM by telerik supports all database technologies?
A: Yes

Q: Is Telerik DataAcess open source ?
A: It is free to use commercially as well.

Q: Which is most useful, parameter injection or constructor injection?
A: Depends on your scenario. My personal pref is Constructor injection.

Q: what is high cohesion?
A: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cohesion_(computer_science)

Q: Which is best AutoFac or Ninject? As i have implmented the same with AutoFac
A: Doesnt matter. All the IoC containers are pretty much alike. Its just the ease of use for somebody. Ninject is a simple one too.

Q: from the Performance point of view , what you recommend?
A: All IoC containers out there in the market are more or less pretty good wuth respect to the perfrormance. so its just the ease of use that you need to pinpoint and use one

Q: Should we always think of getting on the interface way even when we are not sure if there could be multiple types of dependent class ?
A: Its always better to program to contract than a class.

Q: Can we achieve dependeny injection without an IoC?
A: Yes … its known as Poor Mans DI – where you hand craft everything that you need

Q: what is DI?
A: Dependency Injection. Making dependencies loosely coupled. A more formal definition can be found: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependency_injection

Q: what is Ninject?
A: A DI Container. More details here: http://www.ninject.org/

Q: Hi, DI is always a combination of Poor Mans and IOC Container?
A: Not always. you can do DI with either approaches.

Q: How lifetime is managed in Ninject?
A: By specifying whether the object is created as Singelton or new object. fluent syntax .InSingletonScope()

Q: which container you would prefer Unity or Ninject or any other?
A: It is a matter of personal choice. All of them provide almost similar functionality.

Q: so who is taking the load of instanciating the object here- ninject or test app or both?
A: Ninject is responsible for creating the objects. It works with MVC pipeline to make it seamless.

Q: If we have difrent implementation of an interface, Can we decide on runtime which implementation to inject. Like getting from a web config file.
A: Yes possible. Ninject is meant for that :). You can use configuration settings in web.config for the same.

When same test gets executed several times with different set of data then it is called Data Driven Testing. Data used in test is called “Test Data “. Test Data can reside in any external form like in Excel file, XML file or Databases. Before using, Test Data should be added as data source in test project. In Data Driven Testing same test get executed several times with different input data. There may be scenario in which test logics and test results both are data bound.

In this webinar we will learn to automate Data Driven Testing using Test Studio. We will learn how we can data bind test from various data sources like Excel and databases.

  • Why we need Hybrid App
  • Setting Visual Studio2012 to develop Wp8 apps using coredova
  • Setting WP8 App project to work with Kendo UI

In demo part we covered following topics,

  • Creating Kendo Datasource
  • Consuming OData and REST Srervice in Kendo Datasource
  • Working with Kendo Template
  • Working with Layout , Views
  • Working with dynamic navigation

We learnt and experienced that how easily a developer could work with all complexities such that consuming services, navigating between views, working with layouts rendering native to WP 8, adaptive rendering etc. using Kendo UI Mobile.

If you create a Hybrid App for Windows Phone 8 using KendoUI Mobile and Coredova then with minimal or zero effort you can publish same app as iPhone app and Android App.

Question and Answers from Webinar

How will we connect our local development database to build these apps using Icenium

Icenium is cloud based IDE and it cannot directly connect to SQL Server or any other database. You have three options

  1. Create a service layer over database and work with service in Icenium
  2. Expose data as OData and can work with OData in Icenium.
  3. Icenium allows you to work with HTML5 storage directly.

Does Icenium support Windows Phone?

As of now Icenium does not support Windows Phone. But it is in Roadmap. Read more here

Does Icenium support Enterprise Application Development?

Icenium only allows you to create Cross Platform device applications at this time.

What other datasource can be used other than SQL?

In Hybrid Applications you can use any database. However, you will have to expose operations on database as service. Essentially, you will be consuming Services in the Hybrid Application.

Can we use jQuery mobile instead of Kendo UI Mobile in Icenium?

Yes, you can use jQuery Mobile instead of Kendo UI Mobile in Icenium. To work with jQuery Mobile choose the second project template while creating a new project in Icenium.

Can you show a Login Screen implementation in Icenium ?

You can implement it in the same way you implement Login in any HTML5 based web application. You have two options to authenticate a user:

  • Call a authentication service
  • You can authenticate user from data stored from local storage as well.

Can we use ASP.NET WEB API in a Hybrid Application?

Yes you can use Web Api in the same way you consume a WCF REST Service.

How does Icenium Cost?

Until 1st May Icenium is completely free. Find more pricing details here

What is role of PhoneGap Here?

Icenium uses Phonegap (aka Apache Cordova) to build and package applications for various platforms.

Can we use SharePoint as Datasource ?

In SharePoint 2010 and onwards you get OData feed of SharePoint lists. You can use them to create Kendo Data source.

Can we work collaboratively on Icenium?

Yes, you can. You can invite collaborators by right -clicking on project and choosing the option for Version Control.

Can we directly deploy on device?

Yes, you can directly deploy on multiple devices.

Can we use Camera in Icenium ?

Yes, you can access camera on Icenium using Phonegap API to access Camera.

Once again, I thank you for attending the webinar. If you have any question feel free to reach me at Dhananjay.kumar@telerik.com . For update follow @icenium and @kendoui on twitter.

Would you like to create a mobile application that can run on most of the mobile application platforms? From the same codebase?

Gone are the days when one had to write different codes in different languages for different mobile platforms. Now a days developers are more inclined to write Cross Platform Mobile Applications or Hybrid Mobile Application. An application written using web technologies like HTML, JavaScript and deployed on multiple platforms without changing any codebase is known as Hybrid Mobile Application.
