RabbitMQ Streams - No such host is known

Yesterday I talked about RabbitMQ Streams, a new persistent and replicated data structure in RabbitMQ 3.9 which models an append-only log with non-destructive consumer semantics.

I demonstrated how you could build a small example application in C# to test this stream. I first tried this code against a local cluster I had running in a docker container (check my repo if you want a Dockerfile where this plugin is already enabled:

At first this failed with the following error message:

System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No such host is known

In my configuration you can see that I’m pointing to the local Loopback address which should be localhost:

Let’s open the debugger and see what is going on…

When I looked at the connection settings I noticed the following:

You can see that the advertised host is not ‘localhost’ but a random string.

This is the random name assigned to the node in my cluster.

To get rid of this problem, I have to start the docker container with an extra argument to set the node name to localhost:

RABBITMQ_SERVER_ADDITIONAL_ERL_ARGS="-rabbitmq_stream advertised_host localhost"

XUnit - Assert.Collection

A colleague asked me to take a look at the following code inside a test project: My first guess would be that this code checks that the specified condition(the contains) is true for every element in the list.  This turns out not to be the case. The Assert.Collection expects a list of element inspectors, one for every item in the list. The first inspector is used to check the first item, the second inspector the second item and so on. The number of inspectors should match the number of elements in the list. An example: The behavior I expected could be achieved using the Assert.All method:

Angular --deploy-url and --base-href

As long you are running your Angular application at a root URL (e.g. ) you don’t need to worry that much about either the ‘--deploy-url’ and ‘--base-href’ parameters. But once you want to serve your Angular application from a server sub folder(e.g. ) these parameters become important. --base-href If you deploy your Angular app to a subfolder, the ‘--base-href’ is important to generate the correct routes. This parameter will update the <base href> tag inside the index.html. For example, if the index.html is on the server at /angularapp/index.html , the base href should be set to <base href="/angularapp/"> . More information: --deploy-url A second parameter that is important is ‘--deploy-url’. This parameter will update the generated url’s for our assets(scripts, css) inside the index.html. To make your assets available at /angularapp/, the deploy url should
