C# Interview Questions -5

Answer: Single line code example and multiple-line code example.

Question Is XML case-sensitive?

Question What debugging tools come with the .NET SDK?
Answer: CorDBG – command-line debugger, and DbgCLR – graphic debugger. Visual Studio .NET uses the DbgCLR. To use CorDbg, you must compile the original C# file using the /debug switch.

Question What’s the difference between the Debug class and Trace class?
Answer: Documentation looks the same. Use Debug class for debug builds, use Trace class for both debug and release builds.

Question Why are there five tracing levels in System.Diagnostics.TraceSwitcher?
Answer: The tracing dumps can be quite verbose and for some applications that are constantly running you run the risk of overloading the machine and the hard drive there. Five levels range from None to Verbose, allowing to fine-tune the tracing activities.

Question Where is the output of TextWriterTraceListener redirected? To the Console or a text file depending on the parameter passed to the constructor.

Question How do you debug an ASP.NET Web application?

Answer: Attach the aspnet_wp.exe process to the DbgClr debugger.

Question What are three test cases you should go through in unit testing?
Answer: Positive test cases (correct data, correct output), negative test cases (broken or missing data, proper handling), exception test cases (exceptions are thrown and caught properly).
