Pro Active Record: Databases with Ruby and Rails

Professional lively list is helping you're taking good thing about the total energy of your database engine from inside of your Ruby courses and Rails purposes. ActiveRecord, a part of the magic that makes the Rails framework so robust and straightforward to exploit, is the version component to Rails model/view/controller framework. Its an object-relational mapping library permitting you to engage with databases from either Ruby and Rails functions.

Liferay 6.2 User Interface Development

Liferay employs a really good theming method with a view to switch the feel and appear of the consumer interfaces. Liferay Portal offers structure templates so that it will describe how a number of columns and rows are prepared to demonstrate portlets. It additionally offers topics that may be used to customise the general appear and feel of sites and websites.

Control flow semantics

Keep watch over move Semantics provides a unified, formal therapy of the semantics of a large spectrum of regulate movement notions as present in sequential, concurrent, good judgment, object-oriented, and sensible programming languages. while in additional conventional methods one makes a speciality of input/output habit, during this paintings equivalent awareness is dedicated to finite and limitless computations, the latter encouraged by means of the turning out to be significance of reactive platforms.

Apache Camel Developer's Cookbook

Apache Camel is a de-facto regular for constructing integrations in Java, and is predicated on well-understood firm Integration styles. it's used inside many advertisement and open resource integration items. Camel makes universal integration initiatives effortless whereas nonetheless offering the developer with the ability to customise the framework whilst the placement calls for it.

Sample text

An apparently reusable abstract component may be designed poorly from the standpoint of reuse. There are many ways in which a design may be inadequate but still tolerable, but there is one problem that history has shown is sure to frustrate reuse: inefficiency (Soffech, 1985). ” A poorly designed abstract component may even inherently rule out efficient realizations. Is it even possible to have reusable components that are both flexible and efficient? Reusable software has a reputation for being inefficient-one of the problems that tempts a source-code owner to modify it.

A component designed according to this guideline is not responsible for catching or for handling errors that might occur while it is executing, and therefore should not (among other things) raise any exception conditions resulting from violations of its requires clauses. , Ada and Eiffel but not C++ and RESOLVE) often are designed defensively. It seems tempting to use exception-handling when it is available. ” Similar suggestions are offered by Gautier and Wallis (1990). Notice that if one follows the second suggestion in the design of a basic reusable component, then it is easy to build a component that follows the first suggestion without loss of efficiency-by layering on top of the original component-but not vice versa.

1985; Guttag and Horning, 1986a) and a program-interface REUSABLE SOFTWARE COMPONENTS 19 specification is written in an implementation-language-specific Larch Interface Language (Wing, 1987). Larch can be used to write specifications in either the algebraic or the model-based style, but the main catalog of published examples (Guttag and Homing, 1986b) clearly favors the algebraic style. That is, a program concept typically is explained by a mathematical model that is devised especially to explain it.
