This guide describes database features that support applications using Large Object
(LOB) datatypes. The information in this guide applies to all platforms and does not
include system-specific information. Oracle Database Application Developer's Guide - Large Objects contains information that
describes the features and functionality of Oracle Database 10g.The database includes all of the resources you need to use LOBs in your application;
however, there are some restrictions on how you can use LOBs as described in the

Hearst states that she tried to apply this strategy to the part-of relation, but failed. We comment later on We present a method for extracting parts of objects the differences in our approach that we believe were from wholes (e.g. "speedometer" from "car"). Given most important to our comparative success. a very large corpus our method finds part words with Looking more widely still, there is an ever55% accuracy for the top 50 words as ranked by the growing literature on the use of statistical/corpussystem. ...
We address the problem of learning the mapping between words and their possible pronunciations in terms of sub-word units. Most previous approaches have involved generative modeling of the distribution of pronunciations, usually trained to maximize likelihood. We propose a discriminative, feature-rich approach using large-margin learning. This approach allows us to optimize an objective closely related to a discriminative task, to incorporate a large number of complex features, and still do inference efﬁciently. ...
Probabilistic topic models have recently gained much popularity in informational retrieval and related areas. Via such models, one can project high-dimensional objects such as text documents into a low dimensional space where their latent semantics are captured and modeled; can integrate multiple sources of information—to ”share statistical strength” among components of a hierarchical probabilistic model; and can structurally display and classify the otherwise unstructured object collections. ...
This book uses Objects First Approach. Students learn to design with objects from the start. In more traditional approaches, students first learn "programming basics in the context of procedural programming in the small." Since this frame of reference is essentially useless when attacking large-scale problems, students must later "re-learn how to approach problems. Instructors can present material from a point of view that will "make sense" throughout the curriculum. Presentation and justification of programming principles and good techniques is easier....
This book is designed to be read from beginning to end by those new to
PL/SQL. Part I covers PL/SQL fundamentals. Part II covers the backbone
of the programming language, which consists of functions, procedures,
packages, triggers, and large objects. Part III dives into some advanced
topics that should help you immediately with your development projects.
My first experiments with object-oriented programming in PHP took place about six years
ago. Unfortunately, the book that introduced me to the subject concentrated on the
mechanics of writing classes and paid little heed to principles underlying OOP. As a result, I
wrote classes that were closely intertwined with a specific project (“tightly coupled,” to use
the OOP terminology). Everything worked exactly the way I wanted, but the design had a
fundamental flaw: the classes couldn’t be used for any other project.
Microsoftís Component Object Model (COM), Distributed Component Object
Model (DCOM), and COM+ each provide services and structure that aid in
implementing large applications. It is important to understand these models
because they will help you make good decisions about selecting the candidate
technologies for developing the business solution. These models also provide
many benefits that can be used by the application designer and developer. This
module describes these technologies and presents guidelines for implementing
Six Sigma is one of the most important and popular developments in the quality field. It has saved huge amounts of money and improved the customer experience for a large number of organizations across the world, yet it is applied in an inconsistent and often reductive fashion in many companies. This has led to criticism in the literature and a number of abandoned implementations. This study guide is designed to provide an overview of the key elements, important historical context and current debates in the field of Six Sigma. It aims to give a coherent view of the underlying principles,...
Object-oriented programming is largely about the ability to hide what's not important
to the user and to highlight what is. PHP 5 offers standardized means for specifying
the variety of property scopes typically offered by full-featured OO languages.
Multi-robot systems (MRS) are becoming one of the most important areas
of research in Robotics, due to the challenging nature of the involved
research and to the multiple potential applications to areas such as
autonomous sensor networks, building surveillance, transportation of large
objects, air and underwater pollution monitoring, forest fire detection,
transportation systems, or search and rescue after large-scale disasters.
It’s been a while since I first worked on a book with O’Reilly in 1997. That book was
a practical guide to data structures and algorithms, a subject that, for the most part,
had been defined many years before by some of the early giants of computer science
(Dijkstra, Hoare, Knuth, to name a few). By comparison, I’ve been able to witness the
rapid evolution of the subject of this book from the front lines, and I have had the good
fortune to help refine it myself while working as a web developer at one of the largest
web applications in the world, Yahoo!....
My professional coding career has gone from large to small in a variety of ways. I
started on 3279 terminals at IBM, and with each professional move (from Ericsson to
Travelocity and others) I went to smaller machines and smaller companies. Now I
work on computers you can fit in your pocket and at a company of one: me.
When I first started working in mobile development, I used J2ME on various
phones, including Blackberries. When I got the chance to work on an iPhone, I purchased
my first MacBook and loved it! It wasn’t until sometime later that I realized that
I had gotten in at...
This module provides students with a brief foundational understanding of the
MicrosoftÆ Component Object Model (COM) and associated technologies. This
nderstanding is necessary to make good decisions about candidate
echnologies. Microsoftís Component Object Model, Distributed Component
Object Model (DCOM), and COM+ each provide services and structure that aid
n implementing large applications. These models provide many benefits that
an be used by the application designer and developer. This module describes
hese technologies and presents guidelines for implementing them.
While there is a study guide (available from Ventus) that focuses largely on objects and their
characteristics, it will be instructive to the learner (of the Java programming language) to understand how
the concept of an object is applied to their construction and use in Java applications.
This book is the first in a series of books on software development for the .NET platform. The programming
language is C#, and although the books thus focuses on the language C# and the selected platform, then
programming in general play a large role, and the books has also focused on concepts such as algorithms,
design and program quality. I have sought that each book must be read independent of each other, but
the current book or similar substance may be regarded as a prerequisite for the subsequent, and that
applies to some extent also C# 2....
While most of the topics covered here apply to almost any outsourcing situation,
this book is written primarily for technology professionals; it specifically
caters to those working in small- to medium-size companies or in the technology
trenches of large organizations.
If startups or small- to medium-size companies are your world, you most
likely need outside help either to grow your firm quickly or to get a product
off the ground fast, or just to add the short-term or specialist expertise you
need at a critical juncture.
The Company seeks to provide a comprehensive range of sub-funds with the purpose of spreading investment risk and satisfying the
requirements of investors seeking income, capital conservation and growth.
In carrying out the investment objectives of the Company, the Board of Directors at all times seeks to maintain an appropriate level of
liquidity in the assets of the sub-funds so that redemptions of Shares under normal circumstances may be made without undue delay
upon request by shareholders.
