Using Fluent Validation with ASP.NET MVC

By using FluentValidation Package you can apply validation easily, for unit test validation rule FluentValidation provide some easy way, FluentValidation split to validation from the basic model. If you want to inject Dependencies into your validation rule then you must use FluentValidation.

Library of FluentValidation uses Fluent interface and lambda expressions for building validation rules for your business objects.  For your validation object, FluentValidation is one way of setting, using fluent validation you can separate validation from business logic. Separating validation helps clean up your domain code and make it more cohesive, as well as giving you a single place to look for validation logic.

Before starting to apply Fluent Validation you have to add its library/dll, you can directly download it from http://fluentvalidation.codeplex.com/


Fluent Validation is also available as a Nuget package, so search FluentValidation.MVC4 and install from Nuget Package Manager. After installing, you can find two new assemblies added to your application named as Fluent Validation and Fluent Validation.Mvc.


Add a class FValidator and write all validation rules like below.

namespace WebApplication1.Models
{
    public class FValidator : AbstractValidator<RegistrationModels>
    {
        public FValidator()
        {
            RuleFor(x => x.uName).NotNull().WithMessage("please Enter the Name");
            RuleFor(x => x.uEmail).NotNull()
.WithMessage("please Enter the Email")
.EmailAddress().WithMessage("Please Enter valid Email");
            RuleFor(x => x.uMobileNo).NotNull()
.WithMessage("please Enter Mobile").Length(6,10);
            RuleFor(x => x.uCountry).NotNull()
.WithMessage("please Enter the Country");
        }
    }
}

Now link FValidator validation class to the RegistrationModels class by specifying it in the Validation attribute as below:

namespace WebApplication1.Models
{
    [FluentValidation.Attributes.Validator(typeof(FValidator))]
    public class RegistrationModels
    {
        [Display(Name = "Name")]
        public string uName { getset; }
        [Display(Name = "Email")]
        public string uEmail { getset; }
        [Display(Name = "Mob Number")]
        public string uMobileNo { getset; }
        [Display(Name = "Country")]
        public string uCountry { getset; }
    }
}

RegistrationController is below.

namespace WebApplication1.Controllers
{
    public class RegistrationController : Controller
    {
        public ActionResult Index()
        {
            return View();
        }
        [HttpPost]
        public ActionResult Index(RegistrationModels mRegister)
        {
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
            {
                return View("Completed");
            }
            else
            {
                return View(mRegister);
            }

        }
    }
}

Your Registration.cshtml code looks like below.
@model WebApplication1.Models.RegistrationModels
@{
    ViewBag.Title = "Home Page";
}

@using (Html.BeginForm())
{
    @Html.ValidationSummary(true)
    <fieldset>
        <legend>Form</legend>
        <div class="form-group">
            @Html.Label("Name"new { @class = "col-md-2 control-label" })
            <div class="col-md-10">
                @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.uName, new { @class = "form-control" })
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.uName)
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="form-group">
            @Html.Label("Email"new { @class = "col-md-2 control-label" })
            <div class="col-md-10">
                @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.uEmail, new { @class = "form-control" })
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.uEmail)
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="form-group">
            @Html.Label("Mobile"new { @class = "col-md-2 control-label" })
            <div class="col-md-10">
                @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.uMobileNo, new { @class = "form-control" })
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.uMobileNo)
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="form-group">
            @Html.Label("Mobile"new { @class = "col-md-2 control-label" })
            <div class="col-md-10">
                @Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.uCountry, new { @class = "form-control" })
                @Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.uCountry)
            </div>
        </div>
        <div class="form-group">
            <div class="col-md-offset-2 col-md-10">
                <input type="submit" class="btn btn-default" value="Submit" />
            </div>
        </div>
    </fieldset>
} 

Finally call the FluentValidationModelValidatorProvider.Configure() method inside your global.asax file as bellow.
namespace WebApplication1{    public class MvcApplication : System.Web.HttpApplication    {        protected void Application_Start()        {            AreaRegistration.RegisterAllAreas();            FilterConfig.RegisterGlobalFilters(GlobalFilters.Filters);            RouteConfig.RegisterRoutes(RouteTable.Routes);            BundleConfig.RegisterBundles(BundleTable.Bundles);            FluentValidationModelValidatorProvider.Configure();        }    }}

The validation messages are shown below:

What is difference between UNION and UNION ALL in SQL Server

We use UNION and UNION ALL operator to combine multiple results set into one result set.
UNION operator is used to combining multiple results set into one result set but removes any duplicate rows. Basically, UNION is used to performing a DISTINCT operation across all columns in the result set. UNION operator has the extra overhead of removing duplicate rows and sorting result.
UNION ALL operator use to combine multiple results set into one result set but it does not remove any duplicate result. Actually, this does not remove duplicate rows so it is faster than the UNION operator. If you want to combine multiple results and without duplicate records then use UNION otherwise UNION ALL is better.
Following some rules for using UNION/UNION ALL operator
1.The number of the column should be the same in the query's when you want to combine them. 2.The column should be of the same data type. 3.ORDER BY clause can be applied to the overall result set not within each result set.
4.Column name of …

Merge and Merge join transformation in SSIS

MERGE TRANSFORMATION
Using Merge Transformation we can combine two sorted data-set into single data-set basically Merge Transformation used to combines rows from two sorted data flows into one sorted data flow. Following tasks you may perform using Merge Transformation: 1.Suppose we have a scenario like, we need to merge data from a database table and excel means we want to merge data from two different data sources. For such type of scenario, you can use Merge Transformation. 2.If we want to merge data from two same structured tables but exists two different servers. 3.Sometimes we get an error due to data in a row, after correcting errors in the data we can re-merge rows easily. See below explanations may help you to understand Merge Transformation: I do evaluate here, you already know about the data source, data conversion, data flow, task flow, control flow etc. Note:Before Merge transformation, we need to sort the data using Sort Transformation. After sorting data add data path to Merge…

Add day to ISODate in MongoDB

We can use $add operator to add days in ISODate in mongodb, $add is the Arithmetic Aggregation Operator which adds number and date in mongodb.
Syntax:

{ $add: [ <expression1>, <expression2>, ... ] }

Note:  If one of the argument is date $add operator treats to other arguments as milliseconds to add to the date.
Example: Suppose we have a Test collection as below.

{"Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD","CreatedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-07T08:00:00.000Z")}

Query to add 2 days in CreatedDate

db.Test.aggregate([      { $project: { Title: 1, AddedDate: { $add: [ "$CreatedDate", 2*24*60*60000 ] } } }    ])

Result:

{ "_id" : ObjectId("579a1567ac1b3f3732483de0"), "Title" : "Add day to ISODate in MongoBD", "AddedDate" : ISODate("2016-07-09T08:00:00.000Z") }

Note: As mentioned in above note we have to convert days in millisecond because $add operator treat to other arg…
