VB.net learning: A Complete Data Provider Factory Example

Step 1:

insert an App.config file to the current project and define an
empty <appSettings> element. Add a new key-named provider that maps to the namespace name of the
data provider you wish to obtain (System.Data.SqlClient). Also, define a connection string that
represents a connection to the xx database.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
<appSettings>
<!-- Which provider? -->
<add key="provider" value="System.Data.SqlClient" />
<!-- Which connection string? -->
<add key="cnStr" value= "Data Source=(local)\SQLEXPRESS;
Initial Catalog=AutoLot;Integrated Security=True"/>
</appSettings>
...
</configuration>

Step 2: Read the property file

Sub Main()
Console.WriteLine("***** Fun with Data Provider Factories *****" & vbLf)
' Get Connection string/provider from *.config.
Dim dp As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("provider")
Dim cnStr As String = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("cnStr")
' Get the factory provider.
Dim df As DbProviderFactory = DbProviderFactories.GetFactory(dp)

step 3: ` Now get the connection object.
Using cn As DbConnection = df.CreateConnection()
Console.WriteLine("Your connection object is a: {0}", cn.GetType().Name)
cn.ConnectionString = cnStr
cn.Open()
' Make command object.
Dim cmd As DbCommand = df.CreateCommand()
Console.WriteLine("Your command object is a: {0}", cmd.GetType().Name)
cmd.Connection = cn
cmd.CommandText = "Select * From Inventory"
' Print out data with data reader.
Using dr As DbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
Console.WriteLine("Your data reader object is a: {0}",
dr.GetType().Name)
Console.WriteLine(vbLf & "***** Current Inventory *****")
Do While dr.Read()
Console.WriteLine("-> Car #{0} is a {1}.", dr("CarID"),
dr("Make").ToString())
Loop
End Using
End Using
Console.ReadLine()
End Sub

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"/> …

Live - solving the jasper report out of memory and high cpu usage problems

I still can not find the solution. So I summary all the things and tell my boss about it. If any one knows the solution, please let me know.


Symptom: 1.The JVM became Out of memory when creating big consumption report 2.Those JRTemplateElement-instances is still there occupied even if I logged out the system
Reason:         1. There is a large number of JRTemplateElement-instances cached in the memory 2.The clearobjects() method in ReportThread class has not been triggered when logging out
Action I tried:      About the Virtualizer: 1.Replacing the JRSwapFileVirtualizer with JRFileVirtualizer 2.Not use any FileVirtualizer for cache the report in the hard disk Result: The japserreport still creating the a large number of JRTemplateElement-instances in the memory     About the work around below,      I tried: item 3(in below work around list) – result: it helps to reduce  the size of the JRTemplateElement Object                Item 4,5 – result : it helps a lot to reduce the number of  JRTemplateE…
