Programming Neural Networks in Java will show the intermediate to advanced Java programmer how to create neural networks. This book attempts to teach neural network programming through two mechanisms. First the reader is shown how to create a reusable neural network package that could be used in any Java program. Second, this reusable neural network package is applied to several real world problems that are commonly faced by IS programmers. This book covers such topics as Kohonen neural networks, multi layer neural networks, training, back propagation, and many other topics.
The book is a reference guide for AutoCAD programmers, and it’s primarily designed to
explain and demonstrate the features of AutoCAD 2006. As such, this isn’t a beginner’s guide;
however, if you’ve programmed in any language that can interface with other COM objects,
you should be able to easily understand and use this book.
In particular, the book is aimed at programmers who use AutoCAD for daily tasks and can
see the benefits of customizing and automating these tasks.
Ladder diagram (LAD) and function block diagram (FBD) are the graphic-oriented programming languages in the programming software STEP 7. Now in its fourth edition, this book introduces in the latest version of STEP 7 with new functions for Windows vista.

This book is meant to give you a head start on the changes from Visual Basic to
Visual Basic.NET (VB.NET). Most of the book assumes that you are comfortable
with Visual Basic 6.0 (VB6), so the book endeavors to be a quick introduction to the
major differences between VB6 and the new VB.NET.
I’ve been using Visual Basic since version 1.0. The most dramatic shift had been in
the move from VB3 to VB4, when class modules were introduced, and VB started on
its long, slow path to becoming object oriented.

Struts is an open-source framework that integrates with standard Java technologies and lets developers build web applications quickly and effectively. In much the same way that Java has overtaken C++, Struts is well poised to become the framework for web application development because of its ability to address the types of issues engineers face when building large-scale web applications.
In Programming VB .NET: A Guide for Experienced Programmers, authors Gary Cornell and Jonathan Morrison carefully explain the exciting features of Visual Basic .NET. Since VB .NET is, for all practical purposes, a whole new language even for the most experienced Visual Basic programmers, developers need to think differently about many familiar topics. Cornell and Morrison are there to help you with careful discussions of each topic.

Sewage sludge has been used in agriculture over a long time. Since 1986 the utilization of
sewage sludge has been subject to provisions stipulated in the EU Directive (86/278/EEC).
The Directive sets out requirements with respect to the quality of sludge, the soil on which it
is to be used, the loading rate, and the crops that may be grown on treated land. The
European Commission considers that 86/278/EEC has been a success because there have
been no reports of adverse effects wherever it has been applied.
How do the experts solve difficult problems in software development? In this unique and insightful book, leading computer scientists offer case studies that reveal how they found unusual, carefully designed solutions to high-profile projects. You will be able to look over the shoulder of major coding and design experts to see problems through their eyes. This is not simply another design patterns book
Ruby 1.9 is the latest version of Ruby. It has many compelling features, including multinationalization support, new block scoping, and better performance. At the same time, the current Ruby 1.8 is still being maintained and is widely used. We're therefore releasing both the Ruby 1.9 version of the PickAxe (this book) alongside the 1.8 version of the PickAxe. Readers can choose the book that matches their environment.

JT Kalnay wrote C, C++, and Assembler programs from 1979 until 1995 when he decided to become a patent attorney. He still dabbles in programming, but spends more of his time writing novels about programming mistakes (e.g., The Pattern).
Programming for Non-Programmers is online course designed to help non-programmers communicate more efficiently with developers.
Because leading a development team (without being a developer yourself) can sometimes feels like “talking about dancing”, I've created an interactive and easy to follow environment in which to learn the basics.
ASEAN occupies only 3 percent of the world’s total land area, but
18 percent of the plants and animals assessed by the IUCN live in
its mountains, jungles, rivers, lakes and seas. Biodiversity is our
