Thanks, I will do. It looks like this is possible by calling C# via node.js using AWS Lambda. Unfortunately, it might not work with some of the 3rd party libraries I use.
wizardzz 18-Jul-16 14:17pm View
I thought that AWS was able to kick off worker tasks/scripts in say ruby or java?
wizardzz 18-Jul-16 13:38pm View
Amazon Web Services. My understanding is that you can use AWS to kick off an exe that is not a web service? Let's say, for example, I write a c# console application that I run to parse data from an xml file on a website, and output that data to db or file, etc. And I want to call that job every hour.
wizardzz 1-Mar-16 10:00am View
Are you able to try regex to split the columns? Is the data space or tab delimited when you read it to a string?
wizardzz 20-May-15 17:06pm View
I will shortly.
wizardzz 20-May-15 16:44pm View
thx, im going to delete this thread then.
wizardzz 20-May-15 16:44pm View
To recreate tests and recreate bad runs, etc. The database has stored the commandline parameters used by every run in the form of a single string, and it's provided via stored proc as a single string and this isn't likely to change.
This way a failed job can be directly kicked off via our website, pull the commands used by the last run, and use those commands.
It sounds weird, but the short answer is: legacy.

Thanks Griff, totally overlooked! Not sure why, but I thought that was something else! Face meet palm.
wizardzz 17-Apr-13 12:13pm View
Do you comment every time you downvote, too?
wizardzz 27-Mar-13 21:43pm View
Wouldn't the 3rd object you suggest keep non logic code out of the 2 existing classes?
wizardzz 27-Mar-13 16:31pm View
Why do they feel the Business Object would be unmanageable? I don't really understand their argument.
wizardzz 21-Mar-13 10:31am View
That was my input. I'm not a servant. I'm not being paid to research an answer for you. Go ask your company for the license. If they bought it, they have it.
wizardzz 19-Mar-13 15:58pm View
What part are you stuck on?
wizardzz 13-Feb-13 10:20am View
Hi Alan, I see that in your main() example code there is no += subscription to an event. However in the sample code after the jump, I see a line:
// Install handler
_handler += new EventHandler(Handler);
However, I don't know what _handler is supposed to be. As it is, your code doesn't work without the subscription part. I'll keep looking into it, thank you.
wizardzz 13-Feb-13 10:00am View
I'm going to try this right now.
wizardzz 12-Feb-13 21:50pm View
I started going that route as a backup. Unfortunately, the Job Manager is often called via bat file that redirects the console output to a log. I could still make it work, but due to pressure from people running the application, have put that approach on hold.
wizardzz 12-Feb-13 19:27pm View
Thank you. I tried to 5 vote, but clicked 4, and dont seem to be able to change it to 5. =(
wizardzz 12-Feb-13 19:15pm View
Yeah, literally clicking X on the console window of the Job Manager.
wizardzz 27-Dec-12 14:03pm View
Very incomplete, what are you trying to do exactly?
wizardzz 27-Dec-12 11:32am View
You can try posting here:
wizardzz 27-Dec-12 11:31am View
There is a proper section though. It might not be software, but someone could help in the business forum.
wizardzz 13-Dec-12 17:26pm View
Thanks Sergey.
wizardzz 5-Dec-12 11:41am View
This is a largely English speaking site. It might be wise to put your title in the language of your question, or use an online translator to put your question in English.
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 16:52pm View
I meant by "inputsource" as your check, assuming it returns boolean (that is what I interpreted by a check). Just put a sleep in the while loop.
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 12:37pm View
You were trying to help, no mistake by you.

You probably did end up helping him, so karma points!
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 12:12pm View
Richard, it is great that you answered. However, I do suggest that you look at the OP's previous 4 questions in QA, before interpreting what he wants. He is a habitual gimmecode'r and I was simply asking him to define the problem he had.
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 12:03pm View
Richard, did you, uh, did you read the title of the post?
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 11:44am View
You're right, it's a gimmecode, not actual help situation.
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 10:31am View
This isn't even a question. What do you need help with?
wizardzz 4-Dec-12 10:31am View
What part of this are you stuck on?
wizardzz 27-Nov-12 10:32am View
What part are you stuck on?
wizardzz 21-Nov-12 17:58pm View
You are using a webresponse, and reading it into a StreamReader from a Stream. Calling readtoend() on the StreamReader is returning a string.

You are doing that in these 3 lines of code:
WebResponse resp = req.GetResponse();
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(resp.GetResponseStream());
return sr.ReadToEnd().Trim();
wizardzz 13-Nov-12 17:55pm View
This should be posted as a reply to Solution #1, it is not an answer.
wizardzz 7-Nov-12 9:59am View
Okay, I get it, what part are you stuck on?
wizardzz 7-Nov-12 9:54am View
I'm suspecting context switches to be a big part of this.
wizardzz 5-Nov-12 22:31pm View
I can't figure out your question.
wizardzz 5-Nov-12 15:43pm View
Out of curiosity, how many cores does the cpu have?
wizardzz 31-Oct-12 15:02pm View
I see your point about links, etc.

One reason it could matter: The question no longer shows up in the "unanswered question" filter. This is kind of misleading since it wasn't really provided with an answer. That's probably the only concern.
wizardzz 31-Oct-12 14:27pm View
Does common make it right?
There is a section "Have a Question or Comment?" It seems this would fit there.
wizardzz 31-Oct-12 11:40am View
This isn't exactly an answer now is it?
wizardzz 31-Oct-12 11:39am View
About $20,000 in salary.
wizardzz 31-Oct-12 11:37am View
Could you possibly include the queries that work and don't work?
wizardzz 23-Oct-12 13:24pm View
Thank you for the format fix Marcus
wizardzz 23-Oct-12 13:24pm View
I'll reply here instead of the comment. I was using RestSharp and having it automatically deserialize by providing a type to deserialize to. I'm going to try with a generic response from Restsharps's client.execute() now. Thank you, I will check out FastJSON.
wizardzz 10-Oct-12 15:27pm View
Honestly, I don't see it as ad-hoc. It's time series data with summary statistics.
wizardzz 10-Oct-12 14:13pm View
" Dealing with ad-hoc data and file format, in ad-hoc manner, with ad-hoc requirements and changes in requirements…"
I don't exactly see where he is saying this?
wizardzz 8-Oct-12 12:31pm View
Have you tried anything yet? What are you stuck on? Are you expecting the community to do all of the work for you?
wizardzz 3-Oct-12 10:43am View
You might find an answer on a Kinect forum, but CPians are pretty helpful, too.
wizardzz 12-Sep-12 17:06pm View
I agree with you.
wizardzz 9-Aug-12 14:22pm View
Just one way: Load from Database to a 'working' list that they are selected and removed from, reload the list every week.

Or once selected, add to list. Then only select from database if not included in 'used' list.

There are many ways to do this.
wizardzz 7-Aug-12 15:49pm View
I did not downvote this, but it should be a comment, not solution.
wizardzz 26-Jul-12 14:17pm View
Great question. Since it isn't necessarily a programming question, you could probably ask this in the Lounge and good a plethora of good and sarcastic responses.
wizardzz 23-Jul-12 15:16pm View
Yes, please describe what you are writing this on/for?
wizardzz 19-Jul-12 14:18pm View
Why can't you validate? What are you stuck on?
wizardzz 28-Jun-12 14:35pm View
Yeah, no idea if the poster means replication instead of synchronization. Might not even know what replication is.

wizardzz 27-Jun-12 10:36am View
Why the f*** was this downvoted? It is literally what SAK ended up recommending after my post, except I didn't feel the need to explain it in detail, AS IT IS SO SIMPLE I assumed the OP could figure out how to use a standard .NET object that is fully documented in msdn. I pointed him in the right direction, which last I checked, is a valid answer.
wizardzz 12-Jun-12 10:47am View

Hi BB, you're welcome. Glad you are not stuck. This isn't really a solution though.

Actually given the purpose of his program, a while loop is fine. A while loop or recursion could work. I wouldn't sat remove it though, just make sure the user's input is read into i, and that the loop has an escape (invalid i value or '0')

Well, I think you should read the user's input and set the value of i accordingly. Otherwise i will be 0 and never change. I don't see it changing anywhere.

Also, the else in the while loop doesn't escape the loop or program or change the value of i, this could be dangerous.

I know, I wasn't sure if the code provided was the exact code from the app. You are right, I addressed it in a reply to a different comment by the OP 4 minutes before your post ; )
