*Favorite*What Great .NET Developers Ought To Know

Everyone who writes code

  • Describe the difference between a Thread and a Process? 
    1)process is self loadable while thread is depends on operating system
    2)communication is possible between processes through some mechanism

    e.g. :shared memory, message queues
    communication is possible between threads directly

    A thread is building block of process, there can be multiple thread or at least one thread per process. Process is self loadable but thread needs a process to run.
  • What is a Windows Service and how does its lifecycle differ from a "standard" EXE?
    Windows Service applications are long-running applications that are ideal for use in server environments. The applications do not have a user interface or produce any visual output. Any user messages are typically written to the Windows Event Log. Services can be automatically started when the computer is booted. They do not require a logged in user in order to execute and can run under the context of any user including the system. Windows Services are controlled through the Service Control Manager where they can be stopped, paused, and started as needed.
  • What is the maximum amount of memory any single process on Windows can address? Is this different than the maximum virtual memory for the system? How would this affect a system design?
    No idea
  • What is the difference between an EXE and a DLL?
    An exe is an executable program. A DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is a file that can be loaded and executed by programs dynamically. Basically it's an external code repository for programs. Since usually several different programs reuse the same DLL instead of having that code in their own file, this dramatically reduces required storage space. A synonym for a DLL would be library.
    DLL: Cannot run independently. Runs with EXE.
    EXE: Can run independently.
    DLL: Takes up space in memory in processes' memory space, DLL is in-process component.
    EXE: Takes up space in memory separately, EXE is Out-process.
    DLL: Runs faster than exe.
    EXE: Slower than DLL.
    DLL: error causes off the application.
    EXE: can't.
    DLL: Doesn't have own main entry point, handled by other method(s).
    EXE: Have own entry point, handled by OS.
  • What is strong-typing versus weak-typing? Which is preferred? Why?
    In big programs, we will use strong typing which can reduce errors at compile time
    Strong typing provides greater type safety. You might have specially heard it about Data sets being strongly typed, where instead of referring columns as data columns (index).value, you create an XML schema from which you make a data set derived class. Strong typing is preferred as there remains no type ambiguity. Another example is, turning on Option strict in VB, where you have to do explicit type casts. Instead of running into situation where you get a type that you did not expect and try performing an operation on it, you go for strong typing so that such errors are caught during compile time itself.
  • Corillian's product is a "Component Container." Name at least 3 component containers that ship now with the Windows Server Family.
    No idea
  • What is a PID? How is it useful when troubleshooting a system?
    PID is process id. Have used this mostly to kill processes in UNIX.
  • How many processes can listen on a single TCP/IP port?
    One. Only one can capture the incoming packet.
  • What is the GAC? What problem does it solve?
    GAC=Global Assembly Cache, solves dll versioning(hell) problem. It's interesting to know how it solves the problem; each assembly is uniquely identified by 4 'things' major version number, minor version, build and revision numbers. For each differing version, the GAC silently creates a subfolder based on a hash of these and places the assembly in it. From a user perspective it seems as if, we are moving the same file in one directory and it doesn't ask if it should overwrite the file!
