Ipad & Iphone Tips- 2

One of the biggest concerns with smartphones these days is battery life. There are many different ways to help prolong your battery life, however I find turning off any services you are not using will help make the biggest impact. Some of these services include WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and your Mobile Network. The reason these services kill your battery life very quickly is because all the services I just named are always searching for a signal even if you are not using them. If you turn these services off when not in use the battery will be able to use its power more efficiently allowing for a longer battery life. All of these services can be turned on and off through the settings app, however some are easier to find than others.

1. Open the Settings app
2. WiFi will be the second choice from the top. Next to the word WiFi will either be "OFF" or "ON"
3. Tap on the word WiFi to bring up another screen where you can switch from "ON" to "OFF" or "OFF" to "ON"

1. To turn off the Bluetooth follow the same procedure as WiFi but Bluetooth will be right below WiFi.

Cellular Data (Mobile Network):
1. Again follow the same procedure as WiFi and Bluetooth but this time Cellular data will be below Bluetooth.

GPS (Location Services):
1. Open the Settings app
2. Scroll down till you see the privacy option. Tap it.
3. There you will find the option to turn Location Services "ON" or "OFF"

*I also want to note that if you are running an older version of the operating system then the WiFi tutorial is the only one that will work for you. To turn off the other three you must do the following:

1.Open Settings
2. Go to General. Tap It
3. On the General page you will find Location Services and Bluetooth.
4. If you press Network that will take you to another page where you can turn off Mobile Network

Hibernate-Secondary Table Annotation..

When using Hibernate with annotation, SecondaryTable needs to be used carefully while using the Discriminator. We assume that there is a table called Inventory which is the parent table that has common elements including Id, createDate, modifiedDate, SKU#, and productType.
The other tables, which are children of the Inventory table, are TV_Inventory, DVD_inventory etc.. In this example, we consider TV_Inventory which inherits from Inventory (in terms of objects).

@Table(name = "INVENTORY")
@Inheritance(strategy = InheritanceType.JOINED)
@DiscriminatorColumn(name = "PRODUCT_TYPE", discriminatorType = DiscriminatorType.STRING, length = 20)
@SequenceGenerator(name = "InventorySequence", sequenceName = "INV_SEQ", allocationSize = 1)

public abstract class Inventory {
 // getters and setters with other annotations for the columns and relevant methods.

Consider the child object associated with the table TV_INVENTORY. The outline is shown below:
