  • Using mysql decode function in Java

    Hi everybody,
    mysql documentation says:
    DECODE(crypt_str,pass_str) -->
    Decrypts the encrypted string crypt_str using pass_str as the password. crypt_str should be a string returned from ENCODE().
    I used the above function in a Python script and had no problem, but have difficulty using the same thing in my Java code.
    I receive runtime error when tried decode() in my Java code in executeQuery("s");. As far as I know the decode() function should be compiled, I can't run the decode() in the mysql command tool and receive a response (as I compiled and ran it in my Python script).
    Has anybody ever used this function in the Java code? How? What format did you use? What I should use instead of "s" in this code?
    conn is a database connection:
    stmt = conn.createStatement();
    rs = stmt.executeQuery("s");
    I even tried PreparedStatement, but no luck.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    stmt.executeQuery("select blahblahblah, DECODE(fieldName, password), blahblahblah FROM blahblah...")

  • Ipod Suffle memory shows 550mb already used before any songs added.

    I just got my new ipod shuffle.
    When I connected it and started to add songs it showed that 550mb of the memory was already used but did not show what it was used for. I have not added anything to it.
    I just added songs and although it claims I can add up to 240 songs I have added 50 and the memory is full.
    This is my first move to apple and I am not impressed. Maybe I am doing something wrong, anyone any ideas?

    try resetting it to factory settings. anything on it should be reset and wiped off.
    How to reset:
    1. Disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected).
    2. Move the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the off position.
    Tip: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible.
    3. Wait 5 seconds.
    4. Move the switch on the back to the play in order or the shuffle position. The green stripe will be visible in either position.

  • How to use dll's(Functions) in java ?

    Hi
    I want to use the windows : shell32.dll. The declaration is as follows:
    Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" ( _
         ByVal hwnd As Long, _
         ByVal lpOperation As String, _
         ByVal lpFile As String, _
         ByVal lpParameters As String, _
         ByVal lpDirectory As String, _
         ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long
    I load the library via System.loadLibrary("shell32") and define the native methods(in java code):
    public native long ShellExecute(
    long hwnd, String lpOperation, String lpFile,
              String lpParameters, String lpDrectory, long nShowCmd);
    but i get a: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: ShellExecute. Whats wrong ? For long hwnd i used "0" for the first time, but this shouldn't be the problem. Any idea ?
    hte problem i have is to execute a very difficult programm. this need a system(windows) shell to run. so i try to start it with the shell32.dll. in VisualBasic i found my aim using this topic, but it doesn't run in java.

  • How to use to_char(oracle function) in java

    Hi,
    I am getting the value as a integer from one table in my java file and want to insert it into another table as a varChar..
    I found one method in oracle like to_char().. can i use this in java..
    can u pls let me know how to use this in java..or is there any other way to convert it..
    for example, i am getting the value is : 4 (number) from one table. and want to insert it into another table like : 04 (varchar)..
    how can i convert it and insert into another table as a varchar..
    please help me

    Well part of the answer depends on what db your using but semantically if I just HAD to do what you're doing I would use a stored procedure to do the insert into the second table or better yet do the whole thing in a stored procedure which would make life much easier all the way around.
    Implicit lesson here: Use the RIGHT tool for the job at hand.
    The big question though is why do you have data that's of one type in one place and another type in another place?
    PS.

  • Is there any function module to give absolute value of a number?

    Hi,
    Is there any function module to give absolute value of a number?
    That has similar functionality to the Built in Function ABS.
    Please let me know.
    Thanks,
    cs

    hi,
    why are you looking for any function module.
    You can easily get it by mathematical function ABS .
    Syntax : <Turget Variable> = ABS <Source Variable>

  • Calling c++ function in java

    Hi,
    I would like to know how I can modify c++ program so that I can use its(c++) functions in java.
    the program is c++ ready-made and i would like to use its functions in a java package.
    i read the turiols concerning this on java.sun.com but does that mean that i have append "jni.h", "JNIEXPORT", etc to the c++ file?
    Hints shall be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    OK, thanks.I have tried the jni procedure but without success.
    Is it possible for Java talk to native code (c++) via TCP/IP.
    Please advice of any links/knowledge.
    Thanks.
    1. Strictly speaking, java does not operate on C++; it
    operates on C functions. This is more than a quibble:
    o JNI expects to call C functions, not methods of C++
    objects.
    o In fact, if you really just have functions, but they
    are compiled as C++, then you will probably have to
    declare C linkage.
    2. Functions called from java must conform to JNI
    calling conventions.
    o In general, the starting point is to define how you
    would like the object and native method to look in
    java, then run jni.h to generate the appropriate C
    header definitions, then write the C code.
    o Functions called from java must exist in shared
    libraries - on Windows, in dlls.
    o Existing C function libraries are typically accessed
    by writing a "wrapper" dll that implements the
    required java interface and then calls the existing
    library functions.
    o In fact, a wrapper could actually instantiate C++
    objects and call their methods.
    3. You might care to look up something called JACE,
    which some people claim can generate the kinds of
    wrappers discussed here.

    Could it be that you are using your account on more than 10 devices? Or that more than 10 devices are still connected to your account?

  • Why not to use static methods - with example

    Hi Everyone,
    I'd like to continue the below thread about "why not to use static methods"
    Why not to use static methods
    with a concrete example.
    In my small application I need to be able to send keystrokes. (java.awt.Robot class is used for this)
    I created the following class for these "operations" with static methods:
    public class KeyboardInput {
         private static Robot r;
         static {
              try {
                   r = new Robot();
              } catch (AWTException e) {
                   throw new RuntimeException(e + "Robot couldn't be initialized.");
         public static void wait(int millis){
              r.delay(millis);
         public static void copy() {
              r.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
              r.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_C);
              r.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_C);
              r.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_CONTROL);
         public static void altTab() {
              r.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_ALT);
              r.keyPress(KeyEvent.VK_TAB);
              r.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_TAB);
              r.keyRelease(KeyEvent.VK_ALT);
                   // more methods like  paste(), tab(), shiftTab(), rightArrow()
    }Do you thinks it is a good solution? How could it be improved? I've seen something about Singleton vs. static methods somewhere. Would it be better to use Singleton?
    Thanks for any comments in advance,

    I think a singleton might be a better approach for you. Just kill the public constructor and provide a getInstance method to provide lazy initialization.Thanks maheshguruswamy for advising on the steps to create a singleton from this class.
    Could you maybe advise also about why do you say that it would be better to use singleton? What's behind it? Thanks!In short, it seems to me that a single instance of your class will be able to coordinate actions across your entire application. So a singleton should be enough.But that doesn't answer why he should prefer a singleton instead over a bunch of static methods. Functionally the two are almost identical. In both cases there's only one "thing" on which to call methods--either a single instance of the class, or the class itself.
    To answer the question, the main reason to use a Singleton over a classful of static methods is the same reason the drives a lot of non-static vs. static decisions: Polymorphism.
    If you use a Singleton (and and interface), you can do something like this:
    KeyboardInput kbi = get_some_instance_of_some_class_that_implements_KeyboardInput_somehow_maybe_from_a_factory();And then whatever is calling KBI's public methods only has to know that it has an implementor of that interface, without caring which concrete class it is, and you can substitute whatever implementation is appropriate in a given context. If you don't need to do that, then the static method approach is probably sufficient.
    There are other reasons that may suggest a Singleton--serialization, persistence, use as a JavaBean pop to mind--but they're less common and less compelling in my experience.
    And finally, if this thing maintains any state between method calls, although you can handle that with static member variables, it's more in keeping with the OO paradigm to make them non-static fields of an instance of that class.

  • A function or way to identify a word before any char

    Hi All,
    I am looking for a way to identify the FIRST word BEFORE any specific character. For example :
    I have a string: "This *day*, of OCT *is*, very *Sunny*, "
    I want know if there is a function or a logic to identify just the FIRST word before ',' (here ',' is the specific character).
    So the solution would be: "day is Sunny"
    Kindly let me know.
    Thank you,
    Aj09

    Hi,
    This sounds like a job for regular expressions.
    REPLACE ( REGEXP_REPLACE ( txt
                      , '[^, ]+'     -- anything that's not a comma or space (1 or more)
                        || '( |$)'     -- right before a space (or end)
         )I assume a "word" is any group of one or more characters that does not include a comma or space.
    If other punctuation characters( like '.' and ')') delimit words, then this will have to be adjusted.
    The REGEXP_REPLACE removes all words that do not end in a comma. The comma at the end of each word kept is part of the results.
    Since you don't want the commas in the output, I used REPLACE to get rid of them.

    Scanning in Mavericks? I can no longer use the scanning function in my HP Officejet 4500.
    HP says to go through Preview, Image Capture, or Print/Scan in System Prefs.
    Still doesn't work. Any ideas/similar experiences?

    Sure it is, yet it's called HP LaserJet Professional M1210nf MFP Series *
    Today, I followed your other advice, and deleted the printer, deleted the /Library/Printer/hp folder, downloaded the entire set of driver, re-installed the printer twice, once with the driver, once with Bonjour.
    The Bonjour Printer has the scan option active, but it is doesn't work (refer to above.), it is called M1217nfw
    The Apple Driver Printer doesn't show the scan option at all, it is called M1217nf (as on the http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669#HP list.) This model number doesn't exist, as far as I can tell. 
    Still, everything works perfectly in Snow Leopard, for a MF printer that has been manufactured years after Snow Leopard was released.
    Why going up in software version means going backwards in compatiblity for brand new product is really the question that puzzles me here.

  • Why I cannot use search function in my apple store? I use Ipad 3 and it is the latest software

    Why I cannot use search function in the apple store on my ipad?

    Nobody here could possibly answer your question as presented. Have you tried any troubleshooting steps at all?
    Quit the app store completely and reboot the iPad. Go to the home screen first by tapping the home button. Double tap the home button and the recents tray will appear with all of your recent apps displayed at the bottom. Tap and hold down on any app icon until it begins to wiggle. Tap the minus sign in the upper left corner of the app that you want to close. Tap the home button or anywhere above the task bar.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
    If that doesn't work ... A few more details from you might help you get your problem resolved.

    Put it this way... if you have blueprints for a car you wouldn't want to produce only one car, would you? You would want to produce as many as needed. In another example, you don't want to be able to use only 1 window in Windows. Each window has common features but have different values. That's the purpose of non-static entities
    However, there are instances that you want to have only one value for something. That's when you use static entities.

    Firefox 4 is extremely slow to perform any function on my lap top compared to previous versions. Why? And how do I change this!

    Firefox 21 and Firefox 22 running on Windows 7 have been reported to take a long time to "wake up" from sleep. I realize hibernation is different than sleep, but... this is the closest match for your description.
    Some users have reported that this problem is resolved in Firefox 23 (currently in beta). Others have had inconsistent luck with minimizing Firefox before letting Windows sleep and other measures.
    Please check out this (very long) thread for more information: [https://support.mozilla.org/questions/961898 browser freezes after resuming from sleep]
    Or jump to the part about Firefox 23: https://support.mozilla.org/questions/961898?page=3#answer-457321
    The fact that this just started recently suggests perhaps it is related to another program or update, but I don't think anyone has confirmed the exact interaction that causes the problem.
