Jpa concepts

If there's one thing you have to understand to successfully use JPA (Java Persistence API) it's the concept of a Cache. Almost everything boils down to the Cache at one point or another. Unfortunately the Cache is an internal thing and not exposed via the JPA API classes, so it not easy to touch or feel from a coding perspective.

Here's a quick cheat sheet of the JPA world:
  • Cache is a copy of data, copy meaning pulled from but living outside the database.
  • Flushing a Cache is the act of putting modified data back into the database.
  • PersistenceContext is essentially a Cache. It also tends to have it's own non-shared database connection.
  • An EntityManager represents a PersistenceContext (and therefore a Cache)
  • An EntityManagerFactory creates an EntityManager (and therefore a PersistenceContext/Cache)

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…
