NHibernate 3.0: Using ICriteria and Paged Queries in the Data Access Layer

by Jason Dentler | October 2010 | .NET Cookbooks Open Source Web Development

For queries where the criteria are not known in advance, such as a website's advanced product search, ICriteria queries are more appropriate than named HQL queries. This article by Jason Dentler, author of NHibernate 3.0 Cookbook, shows how to use the same DAL infrastructure with ICriteria and QueryOver queries.

In an effort to avoid overwhelming the user, and increase application responsiveness, large result sets are commonly broken into smaller pages of results. This article also shows how we can easily add paging to a QueryOver query object in our DAL.

The remaining recipes show how to set up a repository-based data access layer with NHibernate's various APIs.

In these articles we will cover the following topics:

  • Transaction Auto-wrapping for the data access layer
  • Setting up an NHibernate repository
  • Using Named Queries in the data access layer
  • Using ICriteria in the data access layer

Ninja Topics

by Matthew Robbins | October 2013 | Open Source

This article by Matthew Robbins, author of Application Testing with Capybara, helps us in using Capybara outside Cucumber in bespoke frameworks, within popular test frameworks such as RSpec and explores some alternatives to Capybara's built-in drivers.

It seems appropriate for us to look beyond the basic API and functionality that Capybara offers. You now have all the skills required to automate your application using Capybara, regardless of whether it is a Rails/Sinatra application or a web application written using any other framework.

This article will ensure that you are comfortable using Capybara outside of Cucumber. It will also show how you can access functionality in your chosen driver that is not mapped by Capybara's API and introduce you to some of the other drivers that you may not have encountered.

Specifically, we will cover:

  • Using Capybara outside of Cucumber
  • Advanced interactions and accessing the driver directly
  • Advanced driver configuration
  • The driver ecosystem—some alternative options
