Gemini Blueprint( Or Spring DM or Spring OSGi)

The Spring framework is the leading full-stack Java application framework. It provides a lightweight container and a non-invasive programming model enabled by the use of dependency inject, AOP, and portable service abstractions. The OSGi Service platform offers a dynamic application execution environment in which modules(bundels) can e installed, updated or removed on the fly. It also has excellent support for modularity and versioning.

Gemini Blueprint makes it easy to write Spring applications that can be deployed in an OSGi execution environment, and that can take advantage of the services offered by the OSGi framework. For enterprise applications, the combinaton of Eclipse Gemini Blueprint and the OSGi platform provides,

  • Better separation of application logic into modules, with runtime enforcement of module boundaries
  • The ability to deploy multiple versions of a module(or library) concurrently
  • The ability to dynamically discover and use services provided by other modules in the system
  • The ability to dynamically install, update and uninstall modules in a running system
  • Use of the Spring Framework to instantiate , configurae,assemble, and decorate components within and across modules.
  • A simple and familiar programming model for enterprise developers to exploit the features of the OSGi platform.
Bundle Life cycle - OSGi is a dynamic platform :bundles may be installed, started, updated, stopped, and uninstalled at any time during

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…
