The rich soils of northwest Bangladesh once held court for powerful Buddhist kingdoms and neutered Hindu empires before falling easily to the embrace of Islam. And all three religions have left their mark in the tumbledown walls of the many ruins that litter this region.
Small villages, colourful markets and remote communities living on fast-eroding sand islands all add to the allure of a trip to this part of the country, but it’s the historical narrative that excites the most. Rajshahi and Rangpur contain some of Bangladesh’s finest rajbaris (Raj-era palaces), its most exquisitely decorated temples and its largest and most impressive Buddhist ruins. The idyllic rural backdrop to the rest of the country is found here too, but chances are it will be the decaying, moss-hewn ancient architecture that steals the attentions of your camera.
So you have a PHP application. Congratulations! However, it doesn’t do anyone any good unless
your users can, you know, use it. You need to host your application on a server and make it
accessible to its intended audience. Generally speaking, there are four ways to host PHP
applications: shared servers, virtual private servers, dedicated servers, and platforms as a service.
Each has its unique benefits and is suitable for different types of applications and budgets.
There are also many web hosting companies, and it can be overwhelming if you are brand
new to the web hosting landscape. Some hosting companies provide only shared servers.
Other companies provide a mix of shared servers, virtual private servers, and dedicated
servers. This chapter will focus less on the companies themselves and more on hosting options.
A shared server is the most affordable hosting option and costs $1–10/month.
You should avoid shared hosting plans. This is not a commentary on shared hosting
companies’ quality of service or customer support. There are many good shared hosting
companies. Simply put, shared hosting options are not developer-friendly.
Obiekty inteligentne umoliwiaj przeksztacanie warstw zbudowanych z pikseli w niespotykany dotd sposb: wszelkie skalowania, transformacje i znieksztacenia mog by teraz realizowane bez naruszania danych oryginalnych. Co wicej, obiekty inteligentne s poczone z plikami rdowymi, co oznacza, e gdy plik rdowy zostanie zmodyfikowany, obiekt automatycznie dostosowuje si do tych zmian.
Obiekty inteligentne prawdopodobnie zmieni nasz sposb obchodzenia si z warstwami. Podczas tej lekcji nauczymy si przeksztaca w obiekty inteligentne zarwno otwierane obrazy, jak i istniejce ju warstwy. Bdzie rwnie okazja do umieszczania i edycji takich obiektw.
Przed rozpoczciem lekcji naley zadba o to, aby wszystkie narzdzia i palety Photoshopa prezentoway si tak, jak na zamieszczonych rysunkach. W tym celu naley przywrci ustawienia domylne programu odpowiednia procedura zostaa opisana w punkcie Przywracanie ustawie Photoshopa.
Chapter 5 of the EJB book
walked you through all of the details for deploying, creating, and
interacting with the EntityManager
interface. This chapter uses the same Cabin entity bean introduced in
Chapter 4 to illustrate the
concepts and APIs discussed in Chapter
5. You will see examples of:
The merge( ), flush( ), and
refresh( ) operations in
An explanation of FlushModeType
The differences between a transaction-only and an extended
Using Java Persistence in a standalone Java application
Exercise 5.1 walks
you through the first three bullets, and Exercise 5.2 shows you how to
use persistence outside of the application server.
This exercise has four different clients to build and
run against the JBoss application server:
This client demonstrates what happens when you use the
operation. It interacts with the TravelAgent EJB.
This client demonstrates the difference between a
transaction-only and an extended persistence context. The
TransactionPersistenceContext EJB injects and uses a
transaction-scoped entity manager. The
ExtendedPersistenceContext EJB injects and uses an extended
According to the classical definition of
beauty, something is beautiful if it exhibits both complexity and
unity. Professor Gene Veith explained this idea in an editorial by
describing two kind of paintings:
In painting a black canvas has unity, but it has no complexity. A
canvas of random paint splatterings has complexity, but it has no
Michelangelos painting of the Sistine Chapel ceiling has rich detail
along with order and balance. It exhibits complexity and unity. It is
Some works of beauty are easy to appreciate because both the
complexity and the unity are apparent. I would say the Sistine Chapel falls
in this category. However, other works require more education to appreciate
because it takes knowledge and skill to see either the complexity or the
unity. Modern jazz may fall into this latter category. The complexity is
obvious, but the unity may not be apparent to untrained ears. Tests for
random number generators may be more like modern jazz than the Sistine
Chapel; the complexity is easier to see than the unity. But with some
introduction, the unity can be appreciated.
