Pro XML Development with Java Technology has been written to help you, the professional Java developer who needs a practical hands-on guide to marrying these technologies together effectively. There are a lot of books out there, but none really explore the combination deeply, and they are largely theoretical. The main objective here was to consolidate the theory and practice of XML and Java technologies in a single, up-to-date source, that is firmly grounded in underlying XML concepts, and can be consulted time and again to rapidly speed up enterprise application development!...

WPF and Silverlight are unlike any other user interface (UI) technologies. They have been built to a new paradigm that—if harnessed correctly—can yield unprecedented power and performance. This book shows you how to control that power to produce clean, testable, maintainable code.
It is now recognized that any non-trivial WPF or Silverlight application needs be designed around the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) design pattern in order to unlock the technology's full data-binding potential.
Pixel Shaders are one of the more powerful graphic tools available for XAML programmers.
I first encountered them in the Windows Presentation Foundation 3.5 SP1 release
and was completely smitten. It didn’t take long to learn that I could create custom
shaders, commonly called Effects in WPF, and add them to my projects. Excited by the
prospect, I started my research and soon learned that shaders are written in a language
called High Level Shader Language (HLSL). I like programming challenges and learning
new technologies, so I set off to learn more about custom shaders.
Marc Delisle was awarded "MySQL Community Member of the year 2009"
because of his involvement with phpMyAdmin. He started to contribute to the project in December 1998, when he developed the multi-language version. He is still involved with phpMyAdmin as a developer and project administrator. Marc is a system administrator at Cegep de Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada. He has taught networking, security, and web application development. In one of his classes, he was pleased to meet a phpMyAdmin user from Argentina.
With the release of the .NET Framework, Microsoft is taking the most significant risk
in its history. Microsoft has spent billions of dollars, representing over 80 percent
its R&D budget, on designing and constructing this fundamental shift in its development
tools in order to build a framework for the future of application development. Microsoft
has effectively realized its vision of Windows in every PC and a PC on every desktop.
Web developers have been eager for an impartial comparison of leading PHP frameworks so they can make educated decisions about the most effective tool for their needs. This guide uses Symfony, CakePHP, and Zend Framework to solve key problems, providing source code examples and comparisons for each. It explains the approach and reviews the similarities and differences in the three frameworks, providing reliable information on which to base your decisions.
Welcome to Release 6.0 of the Oracle Developer Procedure Builder
This reference guide includes information to help you effectively
work with Oracle Developer Procedure Builder and contains
detailed information about its commands
This preface explains how this user’s guide is organized and
introduces other sources of information that can help you use Oracle
Developer Procedure Builder.
The guidelines in this book are intended to help you fully exploit some of Developer/
2000’s most powerful features. Whether you’ve been using Developer/2000
for years or are brand new to the product, the concepts and suggestions provided
in this book should make it easier for you to complete such tasks as deploying an
existing Developer/2000 application on the Web, designing an effective graphical
user interface, or tracking and managing the disparate modules that make up a single

SERVICE PARTS LOGISTICS: MODELING, ANALYSIS AND APPLICATION Chapter One develops this idea and implements tests of the hypothesis that school
effectiveness is an important determinant of residential choices among local-monopoly
school districts. I model a Tiebout-style housing market in which house prices ration
access to desirable schools, which may be desirable either because they are particularly
effective or because they enroll a desirable set of students.
The DOE’s Carbon Sequestration Program also
supports global initiatives, such as the Carbon
Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF), an
international climate change initiative that focuses on
the development of technologies to cost-effectively
capture and sequester CO2, and the International Energy
Agency (IEA). The Carbon Sequestration Program
is also providing technical and financial support to
international projects through the Core R&D MVA
Program. Projects include the Weyburn Project (see
There was a need to bring
this information together in a single volume, as much of the key recent developments
have been dispersed throughout the biomedical literature, largely in specialized
journals. Since, as in the past, important developments in immunosuppressive
therapy in one branch of medicine (i.e. transplantation) are likely to benefit another
This book is intended to bring solution protein chemistry to proteomic technology
and to provide a different perspective from other review works. Proteomics, while
a diffuse area, is an extension of classical protein chemistry largely driven by major
advances in the analytical capability of mass spectrometry. The content assembles
together some disparate areas into a single volume. The author has also tried to use
as much classical protein chemistry literature as possible as this serves as the
intellectual basis for proteomics.
Vision plays a fundamental role for living beings by allowing them to interact with
the environment in an effective and efficient way. The Machine Vision goal is to
endow computing devices, and more generally artificial systems, with visual
capabilities in order to cope with not a priori predetermined situations. To this end,
we have to take into account the computing constraints of the hosting architectures
and the specifications of the tasks to be accomplished.
Over the past four years, Apple has changed the way we think about mobile computing.
The iOS Platform has changed the way that we, the public, think about our mobile computing devices. With full-featured applications and an interface architecture that demonstrates that small screens can be effective workspaces, the iPhone has become the smartphone of choice for users and developers alike.

The Oracle Internet Directory (OID) was introduced with Oracle8i. OID serves the
same function as Oracle Names in that it gives users a way to connect to an Oracle
Server without having a client-side configuration file. However, OID differs from
Oracle Names in that it is an LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) direc-
tory; it does not merely support the Oracle-only Oracle Net protocol.
Oracle Connection Manager
Each connection to the database takes up valuable network resources, which can
impact the overall performance of a database application.
The goal of the project is to enhance the database of the Oxford Dictionary of English (a forthcoming new edition of the 1998 New Oxford Dictionary of English) so that it contains not only the original dictionary content but also additional sets of data formalizing, codifying, and supplementing this content. This will allow the dictionary to be exploited effectively as a resource for computational applications. The Oxford Dictionary of English (ODE) is a high-level dictionary intended for fluent English speakers (especially native speakers) rather than for learners.
