Repository Pattern Step by Step Explanation [What is Repository Pattern?]

Why need Repository Pattern?
It is not a good idea to access the database logic directly in the business logic (MVC controller). The Direct access to the data in the business logic creates multiple problems.

1.      Duplicate data access code throughout the business layer.
2.      Business logic cannot be tested properly.
3.      So may difficulty for Unit Test of the business logic.
4.      And so on.

What is Repository Pattern?

The Repository Pattern separates the logic that retrieves the data and maps it to the entity model from the business logic that acts on the model.

The Repository Pattern hides the details of how exactly the data is being fetched or persisted from/to the database.

The Repository Pattern works between the data source layer and the business layers of the application.

In the Repository Pattern, the data access logic and the business logic talk to each other using interfaces.

The main purpose of the Repository Pattern is to hide the details of accessing data.
Repository Pattern use to improve the code's maintainability and readability by separating business logic from data access logic.

Using Repository Pattern we can identify problems at compile time instead of at run time.

Advantages of the Repository Pattern,
1.      No duplication of code.
2.      Centralizes the data access logic
3.      Database access logic can be tested separately without using external source.
4.      Domain driven development is easier.
5.      Provides a flexible architecture that can be adapted anywhere
6.      And so on.

Repository Pattern Examples,
namespace DEMO.Core.Repositories.Interface
    public interface IUserRepository
        /// <summary>
        /// </summary>
        bool UpdateAuthenticationToken(string EmailID, string AuthToken);

using DEMO.Core.Repositories.Interface;
using DEMO.Entities.Model;
using System.Linq;
using System.Data;
using System;

namespace DEMO.Core.Repositories
    public class UserRepository : GenericRepository<DEMO_Entities, Users>, IUserRepository
        /// <summary>
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="EmailID"></param>
        /// <param name="AuthToken"></param>
        /// <returns></returns>
        public bool UpdateAuthenticationToken(string EmailID, string AuthToken)
            Users netUser = base.Context.Users.Where(x => x.UserEmail == EmailID).SingleOrDefault();
            netUser.AuthenticationToken = AuthToken;
            return true;

public ActionResult ForgotPassword(ForgotPasswordViewModel model)
    if (ModelState.IsValid)
      bool result = (new UserRepository()).UpdateAuthenticationToken(To, guid);
      if (result)
         EmailManager.SendEmail(subject, body, To);
     return View(model);

React | Encryption and Decryption Data/Text using CryptoJs

To encrypt and decrypt data, simply use encrypt () and decrypt () function from an instance of crypto-js. Node.js (Install) Requirements: 1.       Node.js 2.       npm (Node.js package manager) 3.       npm install crypto-js npm   install   crypto - js Usage - Step 1 - Import var   CryptoJS  =  require ( "crypto-js" ); Step 2 - Encrypt    // Encrypt    var   ciphertext  =  CryptoJS . AES . encrypt ( JSON . stringify ( data ),  'my-secret-key@123' ). toString (); Step 3 -Decrypt    // Decrypt    var   bytes  =  CryptoJS . AES . decrypt ( ciphertext ,  'my-secret-key@123' );    var   decryptedData  =  JSON . parse ( bytes . toString ( CryptoJS . enc . Utf8 )); As an Example,   import   React   from   'react' ; import   './App.css' ; //Including all libraries, for access to extra methods. var   CryptoJS  =  require ( "crypto-js" ); function   App () {    var   data

Angular 7 and 8 Validate Two Dates - Start Date & End Date

In this example, I am sharing “ How to compare or validate two dates in Angular? ” using custom validation function in Angular 7 and Angular 8 . Here, I’m validating the two dates  - a start date and end date. The end date should be greater than the Start date”. Let’s see the example :- import { Component , OnInit } from '@angular/core' ; import { UserRequest } from '../model/user' ; @ Component ({   selector: 'User_Cal' ,   templateUrl: './usercal.component.html' ,   styleUrls: [ './usercal.component.css' ] }) export class UserCalComponent implements OnInit {   constructor ( private EncrDecr : EncrDecrService , private   http :  HttpClient ,               private datePipe : DatePipe ) {                            }   //model class   model = new UserRequest ( null , null , null , null , null );   //Error Display   error : any ={ isError: false , errorMessage: '' };   isValid

Encryption and Decryption Data/Password in Angular

You can use crypto.js to encrypt data. We have used 'crypto-js'.   Follow the below steps, Steps 1 –  Install CryptoJS using below NPM commands in your project directory npm install crypto-js --save npm install @types/crypto-js –save After installing both above commands it looks like  – NPM Command  1 ->   npm install crypto-js --save NPM Command  2 ->   npm install @types/crypto-js --save Steps 2  - Add the script path in “ angular.json ” file. "scripts" : [                "../node_modules/crypto-js/crypto-js.js"               ] Steps 3 –  Create a service class “ EncrDecrService ” for  encrypts and decrypts get/set methods . Import “ CryptoJS ” in the service for using  encrypt and decrypt get/set methods . import  {  Injectable  }  from   '@angular/core' ; import   *   as   CryptoJS   from   'crypto-js' ; @ Injectable ({    providedIn:   'root' }) export   class   EncrDecrS

23 Best Key Features of MVC 6 and MVC 5

What’s new In MVC 6? The Added Key Features as following as, 1. The Microsoft makes a bundle of MVC, Web API, WebPages, SignalR, that bundle we called  MVC6 . 2. The MVC 6   added new cloud computing optimization system of MVC, web API, SignalR and entity framework. 3. In MVC 6, Microsoft removed the dependency of system.web.dll from MVC 6 because it's so expensive. Typically it consumes 30K memory per request/response. 4. Right now, in MVC 6 consume 2K memory per request response. It's too small memory consume. 5. Most of the problem solved using the  Roslyn Compiler . 6 . It’s added a  Start-up  class that replaces to  global.asax  file. 7. The Session state and caching adjusts our behavior depending on your hosting environment. 8. Host agnostic and its true side-by-side deployment 9. The vNext is a cross platform and open source and it's also supported to Mac, Linux, etc. 10. It’s also added to TagHeaplers use to creating an
