Here’s a book recommendation. A science-fiction thriller. The most interesting part was how the writer fused the world with technology. There a nanobots in this world, which send out a “ping”. They sit on everything. Multiple devices can pick up this signal and therefore pinpoint the object. Objects in displays can be overlayed with other objects. Therefor building a world on top the real world… hence meta :) : MetaGame: Science-Fiction Thriller
I needed some data from a old big oracle database. Most of the time I write or generate a entity class, and fetch the data with a Named Query. But this time I only needed two informations and I didn’t what to use a dozen primary keys and so on to find it. So I used a Native Query.. I know… messy.
Trying to make it look a little professional, I used a SqlResultSetMapping to map the result to a plain old java bean.

I use quiet a lot XSL transformations at work. Since they tend to grow rather big with every new rule I implement, I split the file up. Every file has it’s own domain/rule. This works fine. I also write a new junit test for every new xslt rule/template, to ensure that I did not break anything.
At somepoint in every new project I get the error, that a transformation in production (src/main) does work, but in test (src/test) does not. After a few minutes of searching I come to the conclusion, that a import/include stylesheet can not be found. A few minutes later and the penny dropes… I always forget to implement the URIResolver. Every time…
