Oracle's RDBMS SQL Command Dump Block

by April C. Sims | April 2010 | Oracle

Dump block gives you the view of the data at the block level, the smallest piece of storage for the data. Working through this article by April Sims, author of Oracle Database 11g – Underground Advice for Database Administrators, allows you to apply concepts of how data moves, block by block, through the physical structures of the database, really solidifying how transaction integrity is maintained. You would only use dump block on a production system with an Oracle Support Engineer, which is usually done during advanced recovery situations. The dump block is often used to determine the level and extent of corruption and what data can be recovered. It can also be used to resolve some tuning and performance issues.

Ordered and Generic Tests in Visual Studio 2010

by Satheesh Kumar. N Subashni. S | November 2010 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

This article explains the details of creating and using ordered and generic tests. Visual Studio 2010 provides a feature called Ordered Test to group all or some of these tests and then execute the tests in the same order. The main advantage of creating the ordered test is to execute multiple tests in an order based on the dependencies. For example, Web Performance Tests might depend on the results produced by executing the unit tests. So we need to run these tests in an order so that the Unit Test can be executed before starting the Web Performance Tests.

Let us create sample tests in this article and see the usage of both Generic and Ordered Tests. This article by Satheesh Kumar N and Subashni S, authors of Software Testing using Visual Studio Team System 2010, covers on the following topics:

  • Creating, executing, and learning properties of an Ordered test
  • Creating, executing, and learning properties of an Generic test

Organizing a Virtual Filesystem

by Sergey Kosarevsky Viktor Latypov | November 2013 | Cookbooks Open Source

This article has written by Sergey Kosarevsky and Viktor Latypov, the authors of the book Android NDK Game Development Cookbook is devoted entirely to the asynchronous file handling, resource proxies, and resource compression. Many programs store their data as a set of files. Loading these files without blocking the whole program is an important issue. Human interface guidelines for all modern operating systems prescript the application developer to avoid any delay, or "freezing", in the program's workflow (known as the Application Not Responding (ANR) error in Android).

In this article we will cover:

  • Abstracting file streams
  • Implementing portable memory-mapped files
  • Implementing file writers
  • Working with in-memory files
  • Implementing mount points
  • Enumerating files in the .zip archives
  • Decompressing files from the .zip archives
  • Loading resources asynchronously
  • Storing application data

Organizing Backbone Applications - Structure, Optimize, and Deploy

by Swarnendu De | January 2014 | Open Source

Backbone itself doesn't provide any application structure or guidance on how to organize the application source code. This makes it quite difficult for beginner-level programmers to understand how to create a folder structure, add proper namespaces, load script files in the appropriate order, and follow patterns to create a robust app architecture. We will see how to do so in this article by Swarnendu De, author of Backbone.js Patterns and Best Practices.
