JVM - Java Class Load and verification sequence

Loading:
finding and importing the binary data for a type

Linking:
1. Verification
ensuring the correctness of the imported type.

step one: Internal Checks : check the structure of the class
step two: Verification of semantic

check other features like : the superclass and final type of object or method


step three: Binary Compatibility
Nother to make sure they are compatible is because Java programs are dynamically linked. Java compilers will often recompile classes that depend on a class you have changed, and in so doing, detect any imcompatibility at complile -time.But there may be times when your complier doesn't recomplile a dependent class. It will also check whether the method is existed or not


step four: Verification of Symbolic References:
Most Java Virtual Machine implementations will likely delay loading classes until they are actually used by the program. When a class file is loaded, it contains symbolic references to other classes and their fields and methods. Dynamic linking is the process of resolving symbolic references into direct references. As the Java Virtual machine executes bytecodes and encounters an opcode that, for the first time, useds a symbolic reference  to another class, the virtual machine must resolve the symbolic reference. The VM performs two basic tasks during resolution:
a. find the class being referenced(loading it if necessary)
b. replace the symbolic reference with a direct reference, such as a pointer or offset, to the class , field, or method

Preparation:
allocating memory for class variables and initializing the memory to default values

Initialization:
invoking Java code that initializes class variables to their proper starting values.

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"/> …

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…
