In our previous article, we looked at the basic patterns needed to implement a repository. In many cases these patterns were such a thin layer around the underlying data access technology they were essentially unnecessary. However, once you have a repository in place, many new opportunities become available.
This article will focus on the basic functionality that one would find in a typical repository created with .NET. We’ll look at both general functionality and how that functionality would be implemented using three different styles of ORM: Entity Framework, Dapper, and Tortuga Chain.
Donald Knuth famously said, “We should forget about small efficiencies, say about 97% of the time”. But when faced with the other 3%, it is good to know what’s going on behind the scenes.
Exceptions are an integral part of working with .NET, but far too many developers don’t think about them from an API design perspective.
“This web page is slow” is a common complaint about web sites. While the web brings some desirable characteristics such as global delivery, it also brings challenges at the performance level. 2
Amel Musić demonstrates how T4 can be used to create a flexible code generator that reduces the amount of time and effort it takes to create RESTful services.
Kostiantyn Cherniavskyi looks at some of the issues surrounding the object-relation impedance mismatch and how many of them can be solved with hybrid databases such as Starcounter. 5
