10 rules about the interview

I attended several interviews recently, and one of my colleagues also gave me very good advice about the interview, I consolidate them with below 10 Rules, hope you can enjoy them:)

Rule 1: Always be in the place 5mins before the interview. If you reach there 30 mins again, it will be bad to just wait there. Or the interviewer may thought you are not good at time management.

Rule 2: Don't show off, Just answer the question

Rule 3: Give the answer directly, and provide and good and bad solution if you have

Rule  4: Being honest, if you don't know, just tell them you don't know, or let the interviewer to tell you more about that, then try your best to answer the question

Rule 5: Make sure you can show interviewer an image of what it is when you try to provide some information to them

Rule 6: Basic knowledge(e.g. data structure and algorithm) is very important

Rule 7: Should be familiar with Design Principle(e.g. Open Closed Rule, Programming to the interface)

Rule 8: Research the company before you go to interview with them

Rule 9: Always think the design from the end user point of view

Rule 10:  It will be helpful if you can create a hobbies website with some of the new technologies and show it to the technical interviewer.

Stretch a row if data overflows in jasper reports

It is very common that some columns of the report need to stretch to show all the content in that column. But  if you just specify the property " stretch with overflow' to that column(we called text field in jasper report world) , it will just stretch that column and won't change other columns, so the row could be ridiculous. Haven't find the solution from internet yet. So I just review the properties in iReport one by one and find two useful properties(the bold highlighted in example below) which resolve the problems.   example:
<band height="20" splitType="Stretch"> <textField isStretchWithOverflow="true" pattern="" isBlankWhenNull="true"> <reportElement stretchType="RelativeToTallestObject" mode="Opaque" x="192" y="0" width="183" height="20"/> <box leftPadding="2"> <pen lineWidth="0.25"/> …

JasperReports - Configuration Reference

Spring - Operations with jdbcTemplate

This class manages all the database communication and exception handling using a java.sql.Connection that is obtained from the provided DataSource. JdbcTemplate is a stateless and threadsafe class and you can safely instantiate a single instance to be used for each DAO.

Use of Callback Methods
JdbcTemplate is based on a template style of programming common to many other parts of Spring. Some method calls are handled entirely by the JdbcTemplate, while others require the calling class to provide callback methods that contain the implementation for parts of the JDBC workflow. This is another form of Inversion of Control. Your application code hands over the responsibility of managing the database access to the template class. The template class in turn calls back to your application code when it needs some detail processing filled in. These callback methods are allowed to throw a java.sql.SQLException, since the framework will be able to catch this exception and use its built-in excepti…
