Every Java developer should be exposed to ideas from different languages,
and Ruby/Rails is a wellspring of good ideas. Read this
book—it will help you learn Ruby and Rails, and give you new ideas
transferable to Java.
Microsoft’s ADO.NET Entity Framework, known widely as EF, introduced out-of-thebox
Object Relational Mapping to .NET and Visual Studio. Central to Entity Framework
was the Entity Data Model, a conceptual model of your application domain that
maps back to the schema of your database. This conceptual model describes the core
classes in your application. Entity Framework uses this conceptual model while querying
from the database, creating objects from that data and then persisting changes back
to the database....
JDBC has simplified database access in Java applications, but a few nagging wrinkles remain—namely, persisting Java objects to relational databases. With this book, you’ll learn how the Spring Framework makes that job incredibly easy with dependency injection, template classes, and object-relational-mapping (ORM).
Through sample code, you’ll discover how Spring streamlines the use of JDBC and ORM tools such as Hibernate, the Java Persistence API (JPA), and Java Data Objects (JDO).
This paper describes a method for learning the countability preferences of English nouns from raw text corpora. The method maps the corpus-attested lexico-syntactic properties of each noun onto a feature vector, and uses a suite of memory-based classiﬁers to predict membership in 4 countability classes. We were able to assign countability to English nouns with a precision of 94.6%. ence. Knowledge of countability preferences is important both for the analysis and generation of English. In analysis, it helps to constrain the interpretations of parses. ...
The gSOAP tools provide a SOAP/XML-to-C/C++ language binding to ease the development
of SOAP/XML Web services and client application in C and C++. Most toolkits for C++ Web
services adopt a SOAP-centric view and oﬀer APIs that require the use of class libraries for SOAP-
speciﬁc data structures. This often forces a user to adapt the application logic to these libraries. In
contrast, gSOAP provides a C/C++ transparent SOAP API through the use of compiler technology
that hides irrelevant SOAP-speciﬁc details from the user.
The Class Model in the UML is the
main artefact produced to represent the
logical structure of a software system.
It captures the both the data
requirements and the behaviour of
objects within the model domain. The
techniques for discovering and
elaborating that model are outside the
scope of this article, so we will assume
the existence of a well designed class
model that requires mapping onto a
The class is the basic logical entity in
the UML. It defines both the data and
the behaviour of a structural unit.
In this paper, we address statistical machine translation of public conference talks. Modeling the style of this genre can be very challenging given the shortage of available in-domain training data. We investigate the use of a hybrid LM, where infrequent words are mapped into classes. Hybrid LMs are used to complement word-based LMs with statistics about the language style of the talks. Extensive experiments comparing different settings of the hybrid LM are reported on publicly available benchmarks based on TED talks, from Arabic to English and from English to French.
Spatial analysis by way of weighted overlay was used to determine possible locations
where the Boran cattle may strive. By considering elevation and annual rainfall data
within the Dry Kolla agro-ecological zone of Ethiopia, one could extract a refined
suitability map for the Boran. Within the Dry Kolla ‘mask’, one would extract the two
variables or layers (elevation and rainfall) and conduct a simple statistical description
by which the means and standard deviations are determined.
