Running ASP.NET NUnit Tests in Azure Build Pipeline and Publishing Results to Sonar Cloud.

Recently I had to spend a large amount of time on DevOps and I got stuck in integrating azure build pipeline, NUnit tests, and sonar cloud together. After some digging, I came up with a complete solution to run NUnit tests on azure build pipeline, generate test results, and publish them to the sonar cloud dashboard. So I decided to share it with you as well. At the end of this, you will be able to run your ASP.NET NUnit tests in Azure DevOps build pipeline and publish The results to Sonar Cloud to check the test coverage and code coverage.

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.

To demonstrate CRUD operations – insert, update, delete and retrieve, the project will be dealing with details of a normal bank transaction. GitHub repository for this demo project : https://bit.ly/33KTJAu.

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.

Create ASP.NET Core MVC Project

In Visual Studio 2019, Go to File > New > Project (Ctrl + Shift + N).

From new project window, Select Asp.Net Core Web Application_._

Once you provide the project name and location. Select Web Application(Model-View-Controller) and uncheck HTTPS Configuration. Above steps will create a brand new ASP.NET Core MVC project.

Showing project template selection for .NET Core MVC.

Setup a Database

Let’s create a database for this application using Entity Framework Core. For that we’ve to install corresponding NuGet Packages. Right click on project from solution explorer, select Manage NuGet Packages_,_ From browse tab, install following 3 packages.

Showing list of NuGet Packages for Entity Framework Core

Now let’s define DB model class file – /Models/TransactionModel.cs.

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; }

    [Column(TypeName ="nvarchar(11)")]
    [DisplayName("SWIFT Code")]
    [Required(ErrorMessage = "This Field is required.")]
    [MaxLength(11)]
    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

Here we’ve defined model properties for the transaction with proper validation. Now let’s define  DbContextclass for EF Core.

#asp.net core article #asp.net core #add loading spinner in asp.net core #asp.net core crud without reloading #asp.net core jquery ajax form #asp.net core modal dialog #asp.net core mvc crud using jquery ajax #asp.net core mvc with jquery and ajax #asp.net core popup window #bootstrap modal popup in asp.net core mvc. bootstrap modal popup in asp.net core #delete and viewall in asp.net core #jquery ajax - insert #jquery ajax form post #modal popup dialog in asp.net core #no direct access action method #update #validation in modal popup

HTML, CSS & JavaScript Project: Build Cocktail App

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create a cocktail app with HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Create a cocktail app where the user can search a cocktail of choice and the app displays the ingredients and instructions to make the cocktail. We use 'The Cocktail DB' API to fetch information required for our app.

Project Folder Structure:

Before we start coding let us take look at the project folder structure. We create a project folder called – ‘Cocktail App’. Inside this folder, we have three files. These files are index.html, style.css and script.js.

HTML:

We start with the HTML code. First, copy the code below and paste it into your HTML document.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Cocktail App</title>
    <!-- Google Font -->
    <link
      href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Poppins:wght@400;600&display=swap"
      rel="stylesheet"
    />
    <!-- Stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <div class="search-container">
        <input
          type="text"
          placeholder="Type a cocktail name..."
          id="user-inp"
          value="margarita"
        />
        <button id="search-btn">Search</button>
      </div>
      <div id="result"></div>
    </div>
    <!-- Script -->
    <script src="script.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

CSS:

Next, we style this app using CSS. For this copy, the code provided to you below and paste it into your stylesheet.

* {
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: "Poppins", sans-serif;
}
body {
  height: 100vh;
  background: linear-gradient(#5372f0 50%, #000000 50%);
}
.container {
  position: absolute;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
  width: 90vw;
  max-width: 37.5em;
  background-color: #ffffff;
  padding: 1.8em;
  border-radius: 0.6em;
  box-shadow: 0 1em 3em rgba(2, 9, 38, 0.25);
}
.search-container {
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: 9fr 3fr;
  gap: 1em;
  margin-bottom: 1.2em;
}
.search-container input {
  font-size: 1em;
  padding: 0.6em 0.3em;
  border: none;
  outline: none;
  color: #1f194c;
  border-bottom: 1.5px solid #1f194c;
}
.search-container input:focus {
  border-color: #5372f0;
}
.search-container button {
  font-size: 1em;
  border-radius: 2em;
  background-color: #5372f0;
  border: none;
  outline: none;
  color: #ffffff;
  cursor: pointer;
}
#result {
  color: #575a7b;
  line-height: 2em;
}
#result img {
  display: block;
  max-width: 12.5em;
  margin: auto;
}
#result h2 {
  font-size: 1.25em;
  margin: 0.8em 0 1.6em 0;
  text-align: center;
  text-transform: uppercase;
  font-weight: 600;
  letter-spacing: 0.05em;
  color: #1f194c;
  position: relative;
}
#result h2:before {
  content: "";
  position: absolute;
  width: 15%;
  height: 3px;
  background-color: #5372f0;
  left: 42.5%;
  bottom: -0.3em;
}
#result h3 {
  font-size: 1.1em;
  font-weight: 600;
  margin-bottom: 0.2em;
  color: #1f194c;
}
#result ul {
  margin-bottom: 1em;
  margin-left: 1.8em;
  display: grid;
  grid-template-columns: auto auto;
}
#result li {
  margin-bottom: 0.3em;
}
#result p {
  text-align: justify;
  font-weight: 400;
  font-size: 0.95em;
}
.msg {
  text-align: center;
}
@media screen and (max-width: 600px) {
  .container {
    font-size: 14px;
  }
}

Javascript:

Lastly, we implement the functionality using Javascript. Now copy the code below and paste it into your script file.

let result = document.getElementById("result");
let searchBtn = document.getElementById("search-btn");
let url = "https://thecocktaildb.com/api/json/v1/1/search.php?s=";
let getInfo = () => {
  let userInp = document.getElementById("user-inp").value;
  if (userInp.length == 0) {
    result.innerHTML = `<h3 class="msg">The input field cannot be empty</h3>`;
  } else {
    fetch(url + userInp)
      .then((response) => response.json())
      .then((data) => {
        document.getElementById("user-inp").value = "";
        console.log(data);
        console.log(data.drinks[0]);
        let myDrink = data.drinks[0];
        console.log(myDrink.strDrink);
        console.log(myDrink.strDrinkThumb);
        console.log(myDrink.strInstructions);
        let count = 1;
        let ingredients = [];
        for (let i in myDrink) {
          let ingredient = "";
          let measure = "";
          if (i.startsWith("strIngredient") && myDrink[i]) {
            ingredient = myDrink[i];
            if (myDrink[`strMeasure` + count]) {
              measure = myDrink[`strMeasure` + count];
            } else {
              measure = "";
            }
            count += 1;
            ingredients.push(`${measure} ${ingredient}`);
          }
        }
        console.log(ingredients);
        result.innerHTML = `
      <img src=${myDrink.strDrinkThumb}>
      <h2>${myDrink.strDrink}</h2>
      <h3>Ingredients:</h3>
      <ul class="ingredients"></ul>
      <h3>Instructions:</h3>
      <p>${myDrink.strInstructions}</p>
      `;
        let ingredientsCon = document.querySelector(".ingredients");
        ingredients.forEach((item) => {
          let listItem = document.createElement("li");
          listItem.innerText = item;
          ingredientsCon.appendChild(listItem);
        });
      })
      .catch(() => {
        result.innerHTML = `<h3 class="msg">Please enter a valid input</h3>`;
      });
  }
};
window.addEventListener("load", getInfo);
searchBtn.addEventListener("click", getInfo);

Multi-cloud Spending: 8 Tips To Lower Cost

A multi-cloud approach is nothing but leveraging two or more cloud platforms for meeting the various business requirements of an enterprise. The multi-cloud IT environment incorporates different clouds from multiple vendors and negates the dependence on a single public cloud service provider. Thus enterprises can choose specific services from multiple public clouds and reap the benefits of each.

Given its affordability and agility, most enterprises opt for a multi-cloud approach in cloud computing now. A 2018 survey on the public cloud services market points out that 81% of the respondents use services from two or more providers. Subsequently, the cloud computing services market has reported incredible growth in recent times. The worldwide public cloud services market is all set to reach $500 billion in the next four years, according to IDC.

By choosing multi-cloud solutions strategically, enterprises can optimize the benefits of cloud computing and aim for some key competitive advantages. They can avoid the lengthy and cumbersome processes involved in buying, installing and testing high-priced systems. The IaaS and PaaS solutions have become a windfall for the enterprise’s budget as it does not incur huge up-front capital expenditure.

However, cost optimization is still a challenge while facilitating a multi-cloud environment and a large number of enterprises end up overpaying with or without realizing it. The below-mentioned tips would help you ensure the money is spent wisely on cloud computing services.

  • Deactivate underused or unattached resources

Most organizations tend to get wrong with simple things which turn out to be the root cause for needless spending and resource wastage. The first step to cost optimization in your cloud strategy is to identify underutilized resources that you have been paying for.

Enterprises often continue to pay for resources that have been purchased earlier but are no longer useful. Identifying such unused and unattached resources and deactivating it on a regular basis brings you one step closer to cost optimization. If needed, you can deploy automated cloud management tools that are largely helpful in providing the analytics needed to optimize the cloud spending and cut costs on an ongoing basis.

  • Figure out idle instances

Another key cost optimization strategy is to identify the idle computing instances and consolidate them into fewer instances. An idle computing instance may require a CPU utilization level of 1-5%, but you may be billed by the service provider for 100% for the same instance.

Every enterprise will have such non-production instances that constitute unnecessary storage space and lead to overpaying. Re-evaluating your resource allocations regularly and removing unnecessary storage may help you save money significantly. Resource allocation is not only a matter of CPU and memory but also it is linked to the storage, network, and various other factors.

  • Deploy monitoring mechanisms

The key to efficient cost reduction in cloud computing technology lies in proactive monitoring. A comprehensive view of the cloud usage helps enterprises to monitor and minimize unnecessary spending. You can make use of various mechanisms for monitoring computing demand.

For instance, you can use a heatmap to understand the highs and lows in computing visually. This heat map indicates the start and stop times which in turn lead to reduced costs. You can also deploy automated tools that help organizations to schedule instances to start and stop. By following a heatmap, you can understand whether it is safe to shut down servers on holidays or weekends.
