MCSD-Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer Questions

Q:

You are creating an ASP.NET application for XYZ. The company data is stored in a Microsoft SQL Server 6.5 database. Your application generates accounting summary reports based on transaction tables that contain million of rows.


You want your application to return each summary report as quickly as possible. You need to configure your application to connect to the database and retrieve the data in a away that achieves this goal.


What should you do?

A) Use a SqlConnection object to connect to the database, and use a SqlCommand object to run a stored procedure that returns the data. B) Use an OleDbConnection object to connect to the database, and use an OleDbCommand object to run a stored procedure that returns the data.
C) Configure SQL Server to support HTTP access, and create an XML template to run a stored procedure that returns the data in XML format. D) Use COM interop to create an ADODB.Connection object, and use an ADODB.Command object to run a SQL statement that returns the data.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) Use an OleDbConnection object to connect to the database, and use an OleDbCommand object to run a stored procedure that returns the data.

Explanation:

We need to use an OleDBConnection to connect to SQL Server Version 6.5 (or earlier). 

 

Incorrect Answers:

 

A: We could use a SqlConnection object only if the SQL Server were SQL Server 7.0, 2000 or later.

 

C: HTTP functionality is not required in this scenario. It would introduce unnecessary overhead.

 

D: ADODB is a legacy standard and should not be used here

Q:

You create an ASP.NET page that uses images to identify areas where a user can click to initiate actions. The users of the application use Internet Explorer.


You want to provide a pop-up window when the user moves the mouse pointer over an image. You want the pop-up window to display text that identifies the action that will be taken if the user clicks the image.


What should you do?

A) For each image, set the AlternateText property to specify the text you want to display, and set the ToolTip property to True. B) For each image, set the ToolTip property to specify the text you want to display.
C) In the onmouseover event handler for each image, add code that calls the RaiseBubbleEvent() method of the System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image class. D) In the onmouseover event handler for each image, add code that calls the ToString() method of the System.Web.UI.WebControls.Image class.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) For each image, set the ToolTip property to specify the text you want to display.

Explanation:

WebControl.ToolTip property gets or sets the text displayed when the mouse pointer hovers over the Web server control. The use of the ToolTip property meets the requirement of this scenario.

 

Incorrect Answers:

A: The AlternateText property is used to specify the text to display if the image is not available.


C: The RaiseBubbleEvent is not useful here. ASP.NET server controls such as the Repeater, DataList and DataGrid Web controls can contain child controls that raise events. Rather than each button raising an event individually, events from the nested controls are "bubbled"—that is, they are sent to the control's parent.


D: The ToStringMethod() would not by itself provide the functionality required.

Q:

You create English, French, and German versions of a test engine ASP.NET application you are developing for XYZ Inc. You have separate resource files for each language version.You need to deploy the appropriate resource file based on the language settings of the server. What should you do?

A) Create an installer and set the Installer.Context property for each version of your application. B) Create an installer that has a launch condition to verify the locale settings.
C) Create an installer that has a custom action to install only location-specific files. D) Create an installer that has an MsiConfigureProduct function to install the appropriate version.
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: C) Create an installer that has a custom action to install only location-specific files.

Explanation:

Custom actions are a Windows Installer feature that allows you to run code at the end of an installation to perform actions that cannot be handled during installation. This is an appropriate solution for this scenario as we only want to deploy the resource files on the server. 

 

Incorrect Answers:

 

A: We just want to deploy the resource files. We do not need to set the Context property in the application.

 

B: We don’t need any launch conditions. We just want to deploy the resource files.

 

D: We just want to deploy the resource files.
