.NET Interview Question: Garbage Collection

Q1. What is garbage collection?

Garbage collection is a heap-management strategy where a run-time component takes responsibility for managing the lifetime of the memory used by objects. This concept is not new to .NET - Java and many other languages/runtimes have used garbage collection for some time.

.NET Interview Question: Application Domains

Q1. What is an application domain?

An AppDomain can be thought of as a lightweight process. Multiple AppDomains can exist inside a Win32 process. The primary purpose of the AppDomain is to isolate applications from each other, and so it is particularly useful in hosting scenarios such as ASP.NET. An AppDomain can be destroyed by the host without affecting other AppDomains in the process.

Interview Question .NET Assemblies

Q1. What is an assembly?

An assembly is sometimes described as a logical .EXE or .DLL, and can be an application (with a main entry point) or a library. An assembly consists of one or more files (dlls, exes, html files etc), and represents a group of resources, type definitions, and implementations of those types. An assembly may also contain references to other assemblies. These resources, types and references are described in a block of data called a manifest. The manifest is part of the assembly, thus making the assembly self-describing.

An important aspect of assemblies is that they are part of the identity of a type. The identity of a type is the assembly that houses it combined with the type name. This means, for example, that if assembly A exports a type called T, and assembly B exports a type called T, the .NET runtime sees these as two completely different types. Furthermore, don't get confused between assemblies and namespaces - namespaces are merely a hierarchical way of organising type names. To the runtime, type names are type names, regardless of whether namespaces are used to organise the names. It's the assembly plus the typename (regardless of whether the type name belongs to a namespace) that uniquely indentifies a type to the runtime.

Assemblies are also important in .NET with respect to security - many of the security restrictions are enforced at the assembly boundary. Finally, assemblies are the unit of versioning in .NET - more on this below.

Creating Discovery Proxy part 1

All the previous posts in WCF have relied on a well known UDP multicast endpoint for discovery. The port and multicast address are specified by the WS-Discovery protocol documentation.

Managed discovery allows you to locate services no matter where they are, as long as they are registered with a discovery proxy.

Pro C# 2010 and the .NET 4 Platform

The first edition of this book was released at the 2001 Tech-Ed conference in Atlanta, Georgia. At that time, the .NET platform was still a beta product, and in many ways, so was this book. This is not to say that the early editions of this text did not have merit—after all, the book was a 2002 Jolt Award finalist and it won the 2003 Referenceware Excellence Award. However, over the years that author Andrew Troelsen spent working with the common language runtime (CLR), he gained a much deeper understanding of the .NET platform and the subtleties of the C# programming language, and he feels that this fifth edition of the book is as close to a “final release” as he’s come yet.

Error handling and logging

We don't think any "enterprise application" can truly be called "enterprise" if it doesn't handle errors well and notify someone to address them. In an ASP.NET site, there are basically two forms of errors—errors that you have caught, and the ones you couldn't. Pretty simple, right? Well, not so fast! Whether you have trapped an error or not, the user of your application is still going to end up with some form of disruption in their surfing experience. So we need a way to not only provide users with a smooth disruption but also to fix the disruption so that it doesn't happen again.
