Ipad & Iphone Tips- 3

1.  You can access your camera immediately by swiping up on the little camera icon on the lock screen. This is very helpful if you want to take a picture of something happening quickly as it saves you from having to unlock your Iphone or Ipad, input your password, find the camera app and take the picture.
  

2. If you are at the bottom of a page you can scroll back to the top just by tapping the top of the screen near the digital clock. This is helpful for when you are at the bottom of a long article and want to get back to the top of the page with just one tap.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        3. When ending a sentence, instead of typing a period and then a space, just tap the space bar twice. The double tap of the space bar inserts a period, space and automatically capitalizes the next word.

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).

@Entity
@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:

Single Sign On - SSO

Single Sign On (SSO) is the ability of the user to login into his/her system or network and have access to all the applications which he is authorized to under the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). Another good definition is given on this page .A website with many links to SSO is defined here.

  What is Authentication?
         Authentication is the process of verifying or validating the user and password against some security processes.

   What is Authorization?
         Authorization is granting access (roles) to each user for a specific application.

Consider a company of say ten employees which contains an accounting system and a human resources system. Each user is authenticated and authorized on the company network to access public folders, intra-net, and possibly webmail.

However, only the HR department is authorized to access the HR system. Similarly, the Accounting department is authorized to access the accounting system. There is also a possibility that certai…

Databases - Introduction

Database
In the information age (which started in 1940 or so when the US census used the first computer), a database is referred to as a silo of information which has data stored in a particular way. This makes stored data relevant to employees in order to make business decisions. Databases are a specific type of model. Models are any storage repository (server) which stores data whether it is a relational database, object-oriented database, flat or just files.

In this article, we confine ourselves to relational databases like MySQL, MS SQLServer20xx, Oracle, Sybase, MS Access and HSQLDB. These are the most common relational databases currently in use.

Non-Relational Databases
Before we move onto relational databases we will first discuss non-relational ones. These demanded a lot of sort to find code by programmers in order to retrieve the data to the users. Consider the US phone book and the number 307-456-7892. In order to search the phone book to retrieve who is associated to this …
