In this article by Satya SK Jayanty, author of the book, Instant SQL Server Analysis Services 2012 Cube Security, explains that a bit of background on leaf members and non-leaf members is necessary to know how the data is managed at cell level.
The cell value in a cube can be obtained in multiple ways; it can be directly retrieved from the fact table of the cube. The identification of a cell value and its members is leaf members that have no child members or hierarchy that reference a single record in a dimension table.
Further on this cell can be identified by using non-leaf members, members that have one or more child members. The cell value is derived (typically) from the aggregation of child members.Read Securing data at the cell level (Intermediate) in full

This article by Satheesh Kumar N and Subashni S, the authors of Software Testing using Visual Studio 2012 discusses about the features of Visual Studio 2012. Visual Studio supports many testing features, and provides an IDE for testing and running the tests. It is very simple to run tests from Test Explorer user interface and view the results, or re-run the test from the Test Results window. Other than the IDE support, Visual Studio provides command line options to execute or run the tests that were created using the IDE. This option is very handy when executing the tests from other applications, or scheduling automated testing.
In this article, multiple command line tools are explained in detail to use for running the tests with different options and then collecting the output. Visual Studio 2012 provides three different command line utilities to execute the tests and they are as follows:
- VSTest.Console: This command line utility is for running the automated unit tests and coded UI tests from the command line.
- MSTest: This command line utility is for running the automated tests, viewing Test Results from Test Runs, and saving the results to Team Foundation Server. MSTest is also used for the compatibility with Visual Studio 2010.
- TCM: This command line utility is used for importing automated tests into Test Plan, running tests from Test Plan, and viewing lists of test items.
This article provides a complete description of various technologies, such as Visual Studio 2012, .NET 4.5, ASP.NET, Windows 8 Applications, Windows Presentation Foundation, HTML5, jQuery, memory management, and so on, and practical examples to create real-world applications. This article by Abhishek Sur, author of Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5 Expert Development Cookbook, introduces the latest enhancements of ASP.NET 4.5 with HTML5 and jQuery.
Just like other technologies, ASP.NET had also come up with major alterations and advancements in recent times. Some of the things are merely related to actual development experiences rather than any benefits in terms of performance for the end user. But recent changes to ASP.NET have some real advantages and performance implication directly moving to the end users. The introduction of minification of JS and CSS files so easy now; anyone can now implement the same without using single lines of code. The code is inbuilt into the ASP.NET system and the API uses it gracefully to handle the release and debug environments.
It is not only restricted with the feature releases, but the Web has recently made a lot of advancements in terms of new HTML constructs appearing to the world. The adoption of HTML5 and CSS3 made the appearance of the Web almost identical to the desktop yet it runs on the browser. The browser is now capable of taking advantage of a graphics card or even multiple CPUs. There are APIs to directly communicate with the server from the client using a secured socket rather than the very old AJAX requests. The web look and feel has changed to support vector graphics, 2D and 3D canvas, WebGL, and so on, or even the browser supports local data storage, database, application cache, and much more. The world is moving towards a system where there will be a unified collaboration of online and offline activities.
This article focuses on some of the best introductions to the modern ASP.NET environment that catalyzes the modern web world. The article will guide you through the basic understanding of the concepts that will place you apart from other developers.Read Enhancements to ASP.NET in full
