GraphQL HotChocolate - Method overloading for queries

When building my GraphQL schema with HotChocolate, I typically use the code first or annotation first approach.

Annotation-based example

Code-first example

In both cases I start from a class where I add multiple methods where each method maps to a different query. But what if I use method overloading and introduce a second implementation of the method using different arguments?

HotChocolate will not complain and you will be able to succesfully run your GraphQL endpoint. However when you look at the generated GraphQL schema only one of the methods is available:

To make this work we need to tell HotChocolate to use a different name for our overloaded method:

Annotation-based example

Code-first example

That should do the trick.

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
