Singleton Instance in SimpleInjector

Before some time I have written a blog post Dependency Injector with Simple Injector. This is a second blog post in same series. In this blog post we are going to learn How we can create a singleton Instance in Simple Injector.

What is is Singleton:


This is one of the Gang of Four creational pattern. Idea of behind the singleton pattern is to have only one instance of class of at anytime. This pattern ensures that a class will has only one instance of it and provides a global point of access to that instance.

I have already written a global blog post about that. You can find a basic example of Singleton pattern in C# from the following link.

How we can create Singleton Instance with SimpleInjector:


Here I’m going to create a console application with logger example. So let’s create via creating a new project like below.

singleton-simple-injector

Once we are done with creating project it’s time to add a NugetPackage for simple injector.

simple-injector-nuget-package

Now it’s time to write code. I have created a ILogger interface like below.
namespace SimpleInjectorSingleTonExample
{
    public interface ILogger
    {
        void Log(string message);
    }
}
Now let’s create a simple implementation of above interface with Console.Writeline.
using System;

namespace SimpleInjectorSingleTonExample
{
    class Logger : ILogger
    {
        public void Log(string message)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(message);
        }
    }
}
So we are done with our implementation of Logger it’s time to write a code for creating a Singleton Instance with help of SimpleInjector DI framework. There are two ways you create a Singleton and I’m going to show you both.  First is very easy like following.
using SimpleInjector;

namespace SimpleInjectorSingleTonExample
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            var container = new Container();
            container.RegisterSingle<ILogger,Logger>();
            var logger = container.GetInstance<ILogger>();
            logger.Log("This is a sample Log");
        }
    }
}
It’s contains RegisterSingle method for creating Singleton Method. Now we will learn another way of creating Singleton Instance.
using SimpleInjector;

namespace SimpleInjectorSingleTonExample
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            var container = new Container();
            var registartion = Lifestyle.Singleton.CreateRegistration<ILogger,Logger>(container);
            container.AddRegistration(typeof(ILogger),registartion);
            var logger = container.GetInstance<ILogger>();
            logger.Log("This is a sample Log");
        }
    }
}
Here we have created a registration with Singleton life style and then used that to get Singleton Instance of logger class.  Now when you run any of way for creating singleton instance  application it will get following output.

That’s it. It’s very easy hope you like it. Stay tuned for more!!.

How to create Rest API(Web API) with ASP.NET Core 1.0

Recently Microsoft has released ASP.NET Core 1.0 RC2, I am getting lots of request from readers that about creating Web API. So I thought it will be a good idea to write a blog post about how to create Rest API(Web API) with ASP.NET Core 1.0.

So let’s get started via creating an ASP.NET Core 1.0 Web Application like following.



Once you click on ASP.NET Web Application, It will ask whether you need to create Web Application or Web API application. We are going to Web API so I am going to select Web API Application like following. Please note that in ASP.NET Core 1.0 there is no separate libraries or DLLs required for creating web APIs. This is just a project template.



Now once you click on OK It will create a Web API application with default values controller and program.cs.  As you know Program.cs is now starting point for the ASP.NET Core 1.0 application so It contains all the required configuration and startup items. Following is a code for that.
using System.IO; using Microsoft.Asp…

How to use migration with Entity Framework Core

Entity framework core is  the lightweight, extensible and cross-platform version of Entity Framework. Before some time, Microsoft has Released a new version of Entity Framework RC2. I have written a couple of blog post about Entity framework code first migration earlier for Entity framework 6.0. So there was a couple of request coming for writing a blog post about Entity Framework Core RC2 migration. So I thought it will be a good idea to give an overview how database migration works in Entity Framework Core RC2. This post will cover a basic scenario where we are going to create the database with existing ASP.NET Identity migration and then we are going to create a new model and have that migration applied in the database.

How to use Entity Framework Migrations: Let’s get started, To demonstrate entity framework core migrations, I am going to create a sample asp.net core web application like following.



Once we select asp.net core application it will appear the following dialog.

Solution: gulp is not recognized as internal or external command- Visual Studio

Recently, After Upgrading to the newer version of Gulp, I was getting this error.  After doing lots of  finding online and in my system I was able to figure out that Modules like Gulp does not installed to the path. So when you try to run it from the command line it was showing below error.
gulp is not recognized as internal or external command How to solve : gulp is not recognized as internal or external command To solve this error we just need to create a new environment variable and set the NPM modules path there.

To create an environment variable,  Right click My Computer/ This Pc and click on properties.  It will open following windows.



Go to Advance System Settings and it will open system properties windows like below.



Click on Environment Variables it will open an environment and system variables windows like below.



Click on new System variable and put NODE_PATH in system variable name and %AppData%\npm\node_modules into the variable value like below.



Click on Ok. That’s it. N…
