StartExplorer Eclipse Plug-in

In resource views like the Navigator or Package Explorer you can select files and folders. StartExplorer offers the following options here:
  1. Show in file manager
  2. Start shell here
  3. Open files with default application
  4. Copy resource path to clipboard
  5. Custom Commands
All options work with a single selected resource as well as with multiple resources. If multiple resources are selected and an option only works for files (or only for folders) all resources of the wrong type are ignored and the command is executed for the resources it is applicable for.
Show in file manager: (Works for files and folders) Starts a file manager (depending on your system, this might be the Windows Explorer, Finder on Mac OS, Nautilus on Gnome, Konqueror on KDE, Thunar on Xfce or PCMan File Manager on LXDE) for the selected resource. If it is a folder, the file manager is opened for this folder. If it is a file, the file manager is opened for the parent folder of this file. On some systems (currently on Windows and Mac OS) the file is also selected/highlighted in the file manager. If multiple resources are selected, a separate file manager instance is opened for each resource.
Start shell here: (Works for files and folders) Opens a shell/terminal/command line prompt with the selected folder as its starting directory. If multiple resources are selected, separate shells are opened for each of them. If a file is selected, a shell for its parent directory will be opened.
Open files with default application: (Works for files only) Opens the selected file in the application that is registered for this file type in your system. If multiple resources are selected then for each resource the default application will be started separately.
Copy resource path to clipboard: (Works for files and folders) Copies the absolute path of the selected resource to the clipboard. If multiple resources are selected, all resource paths are copied to the clipboard, separated by a Unix linebreak. The separator can be configured in the preference page for this plug-in.
Custom Commands: You can configure any command you like here.

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…
