SaaS and Open Core Software: An Introduction

Introduction
The Open Source business model has traditionally been thought of as losing strategy, with the only commonly referred to success story being RedHat. The level of scrutiny has increased as Infrastructure as a Service (aka, IaaS or Cloud) providers, like AWS make billions of dollars by capturing the value that Open Source Software creates. These billions come predominantly from SaaS vendors (who in turn are making billions) benefiting from the reduced upfront capital expenses required to build their offerings on these IaaS providers. Common sense is that it is foolish to sell software any way other than SaaS.

While this perspective is not without merit, the reality is that there are many successful Open Source Software companies and the rate of success is growing. It seems that Open Source companies are figuring out how to capture a larger percentage of the value they create. As someone who previously co-founded a SaaS company and more recently co-founded an Open Source Software company, I wanted to explore SaaS vs Open Source from a go-to-market perspective to illustrate how the Open Source model can succeed and help confirm that I am not just a masochist.

jQuery Ajax CRUD in ASP.NET Core MVC with Modal Popup

In this article, we’ll discuss how to use jQuery Ajax for ASP.NET Core MVC CRUD Operations using Bootstrap Modal. With jQuery Ajax, we can make HTTP request to controller action methods without reloading the entire page, like a single page application.

Sub-topics discussed :

  • Form design for insert and update operation.
  • Display forms in modal popup dialog.
  • Form post using jQuery Ajax.
  • Implement MVC CRUD operations with jQuery Ajax.
  • Loading spinner in .NET Core MVC.
  • Prevent direct access to MVC action method.

public class TransactionModel
{
    [Key]
    public int TransactionId { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(12)")]
    [DisplayName("Account Number")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage ="This Field is required.")]
    [MaxLength(12,ErrorMessage ="Maximum 12 characters only")]
    public string AccountNumber { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(100)")]
    [DisplayName("Beneficiary Name")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public string BeneficiaryName { get; set; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(100)")]
    [DisplayName("Bank Name")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public string BankName { get; set; }

    public string SWIFTCode { get; set; }

    [DisplayName("Amount")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    public int Amount { get; set; }

    [DisplayFormat(DataFormatString = "{0:MM/dd/yyyy}")]
    public DateTime Date { get; set; }
}

C#Copy
