Amazon Web Services

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

I have this bit of C Code for a project I working on for a project.  
logit("Username: %s Password: %s", authctxt->user, password);

Open in new window

This is going to be used in a proof of concept project and I want to obscure the real password.  I was thinking of either replacing the whole password with a set of characters or maybe keeping the first and last two characters and replacing the rest with a set of characters.  Maybe Xs.   Looking for suggested modification.

Generic Form, Controller, Service and Search fields for Java Web Application

I want to built an application where there will be 500 screens which needs basic CRUD operation and individual field search or combined search field option is required.

Everything when we build entity in Java/JPA we want to have separate controller, service, repository and search api.

Is any framework or open source it has all in common, where we can use the generic controller, service, repository and search and export options by default instead of writing any new code snippet

However we can extend whenever is required.

Please advise.

I have an application which implements a state machine based on StateForge (StateBuilderCpp) generator. A state machine is defined as asynchronous and uses boost in the generated code:

<settings asynchronous="true" library="boost">

Open in new window


Actions (implemented methods) are very fast but are called frequently - events are triggered with 10ms intervals. State machine uses boost ioservice.

I run the application on a single core atom processor. Generally that pc is strongly utilized by others applications and I have noticed that sometimes when a cpu has a high iowait a dozen or so events are queued. Is it coincidence ? How to explains such behaviour ?

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the immutable fluent object builder pattern, and how to increase semantic significance and clean code.
 
This is useful in object-oriented programming languages like java, c#, etc.
 
The resulting object builder could have a clean, fluent API that could look like this:
 
final Car pontiacMontana2007 = Car.builder()
.with(Brand.of("Pontiac"))
.with(Model.of("Montana"))
.with(BuildYear.of(2007))
.with(Seats.of(7))
.build();
 
But in many examples of such a builder pattern written in java, the API becomes slightly different, and simultaneously semantically less significant:
 
final Car pontiacMontana2007 = Car.builder()
.withBrand("Pontiac")
.witModel("Montana")
.withBuildYear(2007)
.withSeats(7)
.build();
 
Wait, what? Did the java developers just throw out the data type system, and reduce both Brand and Model to String, and both BuildYear and Seats to int?
 
Yes, yes they did.
 
But why?
 
Well, that's because of limitations forced upon them by the java language developers: in their infinite wisdom, they made the String and Integer classes final. And that means, that a data type for Brand, which SHOULD have subclassed String, CANNOT subclass String.
 
And that unfortunately has lead to 3 solutions:
 
1. Reimplement String in a non-final, extendable way;
 
2. Envelope a String value in a decorator class;
 
3. Give up and just use String.
 
Why am I making this point?
 
Because I want it understood that many design …

Hi All,

I need your assistance starting a table/relationships similar to an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD) for storing business objects. Please note this is not for SAP Business Objects.

The definition of a business object is “an entity that describes a person, place or thing that is essential to a business system, which the subject system needs to be keep track of”.

I am not really sure which tables / relationships are needed for business objects. I would appreciate your guidance or examples.

Thank you.

I am currently studying software development at a university part-time. I also have to learn UML which I am having difficulties with because I cannot see any vocational relevance.
Where I work, we work agile and I was told that we do not have time to draw diagrams for hours and then make changes to it whenever the code changes.

Does anyone still use UML or is it only used in academia; that is: in research, study etc..

I assume that UML was used when working in the "waterfall model"?

How much effort do you Experts think should go into defensively 'protecting' a text input field (which will be used to obtain key search terms for a text search) from (possibly) irrelevant input from the operator, such as too many space characters, punctuation and other tokens which might not be helpful to an effective search strategy ? I'm relatively ok with implementing methods that are considered helpful, so this is not a request for coding assistance, but rather about approach and real-life search term management and oversight. (I suppose another way of putting the same point it that I wish to avoid second-guessing the inputter whose attempts may well be valid, but look odd in plain discrete standalone terms. Thanks for any suggestions along these lines.

Hi,
I have a simple grammar of a subset of C I'm trying to program using Yacc. In one part of my grammar I have the following rules:
 
DeclarationsAndStatements: Statement DeclaratonsAndStatements
                                                             | Declaration DeclaratonsAndStatements
                                                             | Statement
                                                             | Declaration
                                                              ;

           Statement: error SEMI
                              ;

           Declaration: error SEMI
                              ;

Open in new window


Because I have Statement and Declaration both producing error SEMI I keep getting a shift/reduce conflict, I tried multiple solutions but I keep getting the same conflict. How can I solve this conflict?

What happens if a thread acquires a lock (SemaphoreSlim), and then that thread gets terminated before it releases the lock?

e.g.
private SemaphoreSlim semaphoreSlim = new SemaphoreSlim(1, 1);
public async Task DoStuff()
{
    using (semaphoreSlim.WaitAsync(1000))
    {
    	...//Do something
    }
}

What happens if the thread gets terminated while it's in "Do Something"?

Need to implement Spring Security for a project.

Option1:

  Structure: User table, Permission table, Module table and PermissionGroup table
  User will have only one permission group.
  Permission table will have read/write/update etc.,
  Module will be product/sales/order
  Permission group table will be product - read/write, sales - read/write/update

Option2:

 Structure: User table, Roles table, Permission table,
 User can have 1 role
 Permission table will have as product_read, product_write, sales_read, sales_write

Comments on Option2:

 We can able to use Spring hasRole() kind of configuration for each method and can associate a role to it.
 Drawback: We cannot have dynamic roles as we can able to do it option1

Comments on Option1:

We can have dynamic groups however we cannot use spring hasRole(). Instead we need to get the manual decisions based on the http request - PUT/GET/POST and check for the permissions configured and decide whether to allow the URL or not in the interceptor.

Drawback:

This may not be a standard practice
What would be the best approach out of this two as well as preferable one?

Thanks.

We have a program that was originally a WinForms program. We converted it to WPF and MVVM. Problem is the VIewModel for the window is still 3000 lines. It's difficult to maintain because I'm always jumping around the file trying to find related parts.

I'm wondering if there's a better way to consolidate this, perhaps different parts could be split into different files.

The window has a toolbar, with several buttons on it, and a couple TextBoxes. There's buttons like Play, Pause, Stop, Open File, Save File, typical stuff. A couple textboxes users can enter times in.

The ViewModel has a Play command, a Pause command, a Stop command, an Open File command, a Save File command. There's a property for TextBox1, and a property for TextBox2. The properties send notifications when they are changed. Standard stuff.

It all just becomes a lot when it's all placed together in the same ViewModel file. Even worse, our coding standard dictates that all fields should go in one place, while all Properties go in another place, so whenever I look at a property, the corresponding field is somewhere else if I want to look at it.

If I'm trying to trace the Play button, for example, the ViewModel constructor sets up the PlayCommand. The PlayCommand variable however is defined elsewhere. The constructor just sets it. Then the Play() method it calls is elsewhere in the file, and the CanPlay method is elsewhere. And mixed in with this all is the code …

On compiling and executing the above program the following result will be generated −

what above example doing
is it encoding jsonobject to java object?
i see output also seems like json to me?
Following is another example that shows a JSON object streaming using Java JSONObject −

import org.json.simple.JSONObject;

class JsonEncodeDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args){
	
      JSONObject obj = new JSONObject();

      obj.put("name","foo");
      obj.put("num",new Integer(100));
      obj.put("balance",new Double(1000.21));
      obj.put("is_vip",new Boolean(true));

      StringWriter out = new StringWriter();
      obj.writeJSONString(out);
      
      String jsonText = out.toString();
      System.out.print(jsonText);
   }
}
On compiling and executing the above program, the following result is generated −

{"balance": 1000.21, "num":100, "is_vip":true, "name":"foo"}

how above one is differen from first one?

Consider algos/softwares that take keywords in one document and match them (possibly a kind of set intersection) with keywords in N other documents, possibly producing a match ranking.

a. Is there a specific name for this?
b. Are there implementations in Java and PHP?

Example use cases would be
  • patients submitting a list of symptoms and then software looking for matches against known conditions
  • applicants submitting skillsets and looking for potential job matches
  • dating websites

See this code:
$piece1 = $test;
$piece2 = "";
$piece3 = "";
$ln = strlen($test);
if ($ln > 84) {

	$arrayWords = explode(' ', $test);

// Max size of each line
	$maxLineLength = 84;

// Auxiliar counters, foreach will use them
	$currentLength = 0;
	$index = 0;

	foreach ($arrayWords as $word) {
    // +1 because the word will receive back the space in the end that it loses in explode()
		$wordLength = strlen($word) + 1;

		if (($currentLength + $wordLength) <= $maxLineLength) {
			$arrayOutput[$index] .= $word . ' ';

			$currentLength += $wordLength;
		} else {
			$index += 1;

			$currentLength = $wordLength;

			$arrayOutput[$index] = $word . ' ';
		}
	}
	$piece1 = $arrayOutput[0];
	$piece2 = $arrayOutput[1];
	$piece3 = $arrayOutput[2];
}	

Open in new window


This works perfectly, except I need a variation where I can limit the FIRST line ($arrayOutput[0]) to 84 & the subsequent lines to 94. See attached image for visual of this need. The text is printed using a pdf generator on an existing form image (with the word Remarks & the lines.)

How can I do this?

Thank you

Select “Java Build Path” on left, then “JRE System Library”, click Edit…
Select "Workspace Default JRE"
Click "Installed JREs"
If you see JRE you want in the list select it (selecting a JDK is OK too)

hi,

If i do Control+Alt+H on eclipse java class method say methodA() it does show call hierarchy  of who is(lets say methodB()) calling that method (methodA())

If i do control Alt H on methodB() it shows methodC() which is calling methodC()

my question is how to find by selecting methodC() that methodB() is its parent method and methodA() its grand parent method.

i mean to debug upward as well not just downward using call hierarchy.
is there is a way i can do both ways?

please advise
