Learning Dojo: Compression

By default, build compresses any packaged resources and does not compress any other resources. Both of these behaviros can be controlled by the command-line options layerOptimize( for packaged resources) and optimize( for all other resources). The possible values for these options are as follows.

  • "" Don't compress
  • shrinksafe: Use Dojo-Rhino to delete whitespace and comments and shorten variable names
  • shrinksafe.keeplines: Same as shrinksafe, but keep newlines.
  • packer: Use the Dean Edwards packer.
Whenever build compresses a resource, it writes both an uncompressed version to module-name.js.uncompressed.js and a compressed version to module-name.js

Compressing javaScript Resources with Dojo-Rhino
Dojo-Rhino walks a Rhino-generated parse tree and dumps compressed JavaScript code. The compression function can be called from the command line to compress an individual file. This technique for compressing JavaScript is both powerful and safe. Since the  routines that execute the compression are working off the parse tree, the compression is based on semantic algorithms rather than pattern matching. Consequently, obscure transformation errors are unlikely; this is not alway the case when the script is compressed by applying pattern matching algorithms.

The compression algorithms remove whitespace and comments and shorten variables names. This means that the output is still valid JavaScript source codes; specifically, there is no decompressor required to unpacke the source. The compression rate will vary greatly depending upon the input.

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…
