C# Learning: strut

One of the types in .NET we haven’t talked about much is the struct.
struct is short for structure, and structs look a lot like objects.
They have fields and properties, just like objects. And you can even pass
them into a method that takes an object type parameter:
A struct looks like an object…
…but isn’t an object

public struct Dog {
public string Name;
public string Breed;
public Dog(string name, string breed) {
this.Name = name;
this.Breed = breed;
public void Speak() {
Console.WriteLine(“My name is {0} and I’m a {1}.”, Name, Breed);

But structs aren’t objects. They can have methods and fields, but
they can’t have finalizers. They also can’t inherit from other classes or
structs, or have classes or structs inherit from them.

Structs are best used for storing data, but the lack of inheritance and references can be a serious limitation.

But the thing that sets structs apart from objects more than almost anything else is that you copy them by value, not by reference. Which means values get copied; references get assigned.

When you create a struct, you’re creating a value type. What that means is when you use equals to set one struct variable equal to another, you’re creating a fresh copy of the struct in the new variable. So even though a struct looks like an object, it doesn’t act like one.

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…
