3. RESTful Web Services: The Client Side

Slice ePub May 28, 2014
<p>Consider a familiar scenario in which a client accesses a RESTful web service:</p><p>For example, the client might be a jQuery script embedded in an HTML document. This client requests data, such as a product list, from a web service. If the request succeeds, the client extracts relevant information; for instance, the client might extract the name, category, price, and in-stock quantity of each product in the list. The client then processes the information in some appropriate way; for example, the JavaScript client might build and display an HTML table that represents the product list, with one row per product.</p><p>Each step in this sample scenario poses a challenge. The GET request must be formatted properly, and the status code of the response should be inspected to determine whether the request succeeded and, if not, why not. The toughest challenge for the client, however, may be extracting required information from the document: the client may have to parse the returned document to get the information in a usable format. To build an HTML table from an XML document, for example, a JavaScript client would need to extract information items as text <em>without</em> the XML markup; an XML parse would be the standard way to extract such information. It would be easier if the JavaScript client received a JSON payload so that the XML parse could be avoided altogether. The <code>@WebServiceProvider</code> service in Chapter2 illustrates the problem of parsing XML because successful POST and PUT operations against this service must send, as an XML document, the data required to construct or edit an <code>Adage</code>, and the service code parses the document to extract the <code>words</code> that make up the <code>Adage</code>. A dominant theme in this chapter is how to avoid the explicit parsing of documents, XML or JSON, returned from RESTful services.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/559209-java-web-services-up-and-running">See more</a>

12. Pauline out West: The cowgirl in the movies

Source: The Cowgirls
Slice PDF May 17, 2014
<p>12</p><p>Pauline Out West: the Cowgirl in the Movies oy Rogers and Dale Evans are smiling bravely at each other as they buckle on their silverplated holsters over their embroidered britches. Dale speaks: "Roy, the rustlers are stealing all of my cattle. The well is dry. The creek is poisoned.</p><p>Mama is dead and Papa is captured. Hadn't we better ride fast?" "Why yes, Dale. We sure ought to, but do you think we could sing just one more verse of 'My Adobe Hacienda' before we go?"</p><p>The movie conversation is, of course, imaginary but the plot, songs included, is not stretching the truth too far from what the golden era of grade B westerns were really like.</p><p>Thousands of youngsters in the 1930s and 1940s spent many a Saturday afternoon taking a deep seat and a short rein to watch</p><p>Roy and Dale and Gene and Lash and a score of others act out what surely must have been the way it really was for stouthearted cowboys and cowgirls on the range.</p><p>If ever a medium exploited the western myth, it was the movies. Because westerns tended to lump all frontier women together whether they were saloon girls, cavalry colonel's daughters, school marms, Indian maidens, or prospectors' daughters, it was easy to toss cowgirls in the heap with the rest.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/615122-the-cowgirls">See more</a>

9. Some thoughts on insight and its relation to countertransference

Slice ePub May 22, 2014
<p> <i>Athina Alexandras Grigoris Vaslamatzis</i> </p><p> <i>Introduction</i> </p><p>Much has been written about insight, in both the broad and narrow sense of the term. Hatcher (1980) pointed out that insight is not a simple matter but a complex process in psychoanalytic therapy that depends on the interplay of several factors. Kris (1956) and Blum (1979) stated the view that in psychoanalytic therapy the therapist’s main task is to provide and facilitate the patient’s insight. Insight on the part of both patient and therapist have also been discussed, as has insight in relation to the psychoanalytic situation, interpretation, working through, goals of therapy, transference-counter-transference, and the patient’s individuality. In the literature, however, there are rather few clinical examples supporting the theories.</p><p>This paper will present clinical material from two cases of psychoanalytic therapy in an attempt to illustrate how counter-transference is related to the patient’s insight, but mainly how countertransference affects the kind of insight the therapist chooses to offer his patient. The clinical material is taken from cases supervised by the authors.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/249692-countertransference-theory-technique-teaching">See more</a>

1. Introduction

Slice ePub May 29, 2014
<p>The subject of databases is a large and complex one, spanning many different concepts of structure, form, and expected use. There are also a multitude of different ways to access and manipulate the data stored within these databases.</p><p>This book describes and explains an interface called the Perl Database Interface, or DBI, which provides a unified interface for accessing data stored within many of these diverse database systems. The DBI allows you to write Perl code that accesses data without needing to worry about database- or platform-specific issues or proprietary interfaces.</p><p>We also take a look at non-DBI ways of storing, retrieving, and manipulating data with Perl, as there are occasions when the use of a database might be considered overkill but some form of structured data storage is required.</p><p>To begin, we shall discuss some of the more common uses of database systems in business today and the place that Perl and DBI takes within these frameworks.</p><p> In todays computing climate, databases are everywhere. In previous years, they tended to be used almost exclusively in the realm of mainframe-processing environments. Nowadays, with pizza-box sized machines more powerful than room-sized machines of ten years ago, high-performance database processing is available to anyone.</p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/362374-programming-the-perl-dbi-database-programming-with-perl">See more</a>

Masks and Mirrors

<p>Masks and Mirrors</p><p> <em>“I did not once sell anybody down the drain.”</em> </p><p>— Fercan maintenance man Larry McGee</p><p>In the summer of 2009, Glenn Day was arrested. </p><p>In exchange for the police dropping charges — and for a sum of money — Day agreed to become an informant. An OPP detective sergeant handed Day a “Service Provider Agreement” for an investigation that had been randomly named “Project Birmingham,” whose goal was to arrest the masterminds behind the big Barrie grow op. The officer explained the document to Day, who reviewed it. The deal promised him $2,000 a week for at least 16 months, plus expenses, plus generous bonuses if certain results occurred. It also gave him immunity from prosecution — as long as he always told the truth.</p><p>Day signed, and would eventually be paid hundreds of thousands of dollars, courtesy of the taxpayers of Ontario, as the centerpiece of Project Birmingham.</p><p>A few days later, the on-the-record questioning began. The police officer showed Day a photograph of a man. Day identified him as Drago Dolic and said his nickname was “The Head.” Dolic, he said, was in charge of the grow ops at Molson, Oro and Ssonix and was the head of the gang — he did not think there were any moneymen or bosses above Dolic. </p><a class="default-logo-link" href="/ebooks/797785-hidden-harvest-the-rise-and-fall-of-north-america-s-biggest-cannabis-grow-op">See more</a>
