Timestamp on Object Creation
Sometimes, it may be useful to have a timestamp of when a database object is created. This can be done using an abstract class with a constructor that sets the timestamp.
In code, it would look something like this:
public abstract class BaseOfAllOtherClasses
public DateTime Inserted { get; set; }
public BaseOfAllOtherClasses()
Inserted = DateTime.Now;
public class Foo : BaseOfAllOtherClasses {}
public class Bar : BaseOfAllOtherClasses {}
From this, it is possible to get when all the instances were created chronologically by using the following query:
SELECT b.Inserted FROM BaseOfAllOtherClasses e ORDER BY e.Inserted
