Symfony 2 Doctrine configuration for MySql database


This post provides a quick and dirty way to setup your doctrine configuration using Symfony v.20. 
I assume that you're using MySql database.

Step 1

First you need to enable your "pdo_mysql" driver in php.ini file. Just uncomment the following configuration in your php.ini. Restart your IIS and you're pretty much done.

extension=php_pdo_mysql.dll

Step 2


You need to have the following configuration in your symfony\app\config\parameters.ini file. 

    [parameters]
    database_driver="pdo_mysql"
    database_host="127.0.0.1"
    database_port="3306"
    database_name="testproject"
    database_user="root"
    database_password="root"
    mailer_transport="smtp"
    mailer_host="localhost"
    mailer_user=""
    mailer_password=""
    locale="en"
    secret="ThisTokenIsNotSoSecretChangeIt"


You might have noticed that the database_host "127.0.0.1". If you tried using "localhost" it won't work.


That's it and your website is Doctine enabled! :)

OpenCover code coverage for .Net Core

I know there are many post out there getting code coverage for .dotnetcore. I'm using opencover to address this needs.

In case, you do no want to use opencover and wanted to stick with vs2015 code coverage, you can try to copy Microsoft.VisualStudio.CodeCoverage.Shim.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Team Tools\Dynamic Code Coverage Tools\coreclr\ and drop it into your project "bin\Debug\netcoreapp1.0" folder.  Please note : you need to be on VS2015 Enterprise to do this. 

To get started, I guess we need to add OpenCover and ReportGenerator for our test projects, as shown in diagram below :-



When nuget packge gets restored, we will have some binaries downloaded to our machine and we going to use this to generate some statistics. I think the biggest issue is to getting those command lines work.

In dotnetcore, we run test project using "dotnet test" (assuming you are in the test project folder - if not please go there)  So we add this …

DataTable does not have AsEnumerable

I have problem locating my AsEnumerable extension method in my DataTabe (System.Data). Thank god for this post by Angel

I was able to find this method once i have added reference to the following assembly.

C:\Program Files\Reference Assemblies\Microsoft\Framework\v3.5\System.Data.DataSetExtensions.dll

Try to do a dummy Build and you should be able to get it.
