Planning Your Trip

Simon Foster Hunter Publishing ePub

The two main factors to consider in planning when to visit China are the climate and the number of other visitors you'll have to share key attractions with. In terms of the weather, spring, summer and fall are the best times for a visit. While summers are hot and often wet, spring and fall see less rainfall and generally offer the clearest skies. But, in a country as big as China, if you plan to travel to more than one region, you're bound to witness both rain and sunshine, no matter when you come. For more detailed climatic information see Climate.

The tourist season for foreign visitors starts around March or April (with the exception of Hong Kong and Macau, which are mild throughout the winter) and runs until October. If you want to avoid the crowds, you can visit in winter, but be prepared for some bitter temperatures, especially in the north. But, in a country with almost 1 billion people, the greatest numbers of tourists are, as you might expect, Chinese, so it is their vacation times that you want to avoid (see below).

2. The analytic management and interpretation of proj ective identification

Karnac Books ePub

Thomas H. Ogden

Projective identification is not a metapsychological concept. The phenomena it describes exist in the realm of thoughts, feelings, and behaviour, not in the realm of abstract beliefs about the workings of the mind. Whether or not one uses the term or is cognizant of the concept of projective identification, clinically one continually bumps up against the phenomena to which it refers—unconscious projective fantasies in association with the evocation of congruent feelings in others. Resistance on the part of therapists and analysts to thinking about these phenomena is understandable: it is unsettling to imagine experiencing feelings and thinking thoughts that are in an important sense not entirely one’s own. And yet, the lack of a vocabulary with which to think about this class of phenomena seriously interferes with the therapist’s capacity to understand, manage, and interpret the transference. Projective identification is a concept that addresses the way in which feeling-states corresponding to the unconscious fantasies of one person (the projector) are engendered in and processed by another person (the recipient)—that is, the way in which one person makes use of another person to experience and contain an aspect of himself. The projector has the primarily unconscious fantasy of getting rid of an unwanted or endangered part of himself (including internal objects) and of depositing that part in another person in a powerfully controlling way (Klein, 1946, 1955). The projected part of the self is felt to be partially lost and to be inhabiting the other person. In association with this unconscious projective fantasy there is an interpersonal interaction by means of which the recipient is pressured to think, feel, and behave in a manner congruent with the ejected feelings and the self—and object—representations embodied in the projective fantasy (Bion, 1959; Ogden, 1979). In other words, the recipient is pressured to engage in an identification with a specific, disowned aspect of the projector.

10. Java Enterprise Edition Performance

Scott Oaks O'Reilly Media ePub

This chapter focuses on using Java EE (specifically, Java EE 6 and 7). It covers JSPs, servlets, and EJB 3.0 Session Beans—though not EJB 3.0 Entity Beans (Java Persistence API entities), since they are not specifically a Java EE technology (they are discussed in depth in Chapter 11).

The heart of a Java EE application server is the performance of its web container, which handles HTTP requests via basic servlets and JSP pages.

Here are the basic ways to improve performance of the web container. The details of how these changes are made vary depending on the Java EE implementation, but the concepts apply to any server.

Application servers spend a lot of time doing character conversion: converting from Java String objects (which are stored in UTF-16 format) to whatever bytes the client is expecting. Many of these strings are always the same. The HTML strings in a web page don’t usually change based on the data (and if they do, they are still drawn from a constant set of strings).
