C# Learning: subclass

You extend a class by adding a colon to the end of class declaration, followed by the base class to inherit from.

class Bird {
public void Fly() {
// here’s the code to make the bird fly
public void LayEggs() { ... };
public void PreenFeathers() { ... };
class Pigeon : Bird {
public void Coo() { ... }

A subclass can override methods to change or replace methods it inherited
Sometimes you’ve got a subclass that you’d like to inherit most of the behaviors from the base class, but not all of them. When you want to change the behaviors that a class has inherited, you can override the methods.

A subclass can only override a method if it’s marked with the virtual keyword, which
tells C# to allow the subclass to override methods.

class Bird {
public virtual void Fly() {
// code to make the bird fly

Add a method with the same name to the derived class
You’ll need to have exactly the same signature—meaning the same return value and
parameters—and you’ll need to use the override keyword in the declaration

class Penguin : Bird {
public override void Fly() {
MessageBox.Show(“Penguins can’t fly!”)

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…
