Hardy Farmer

Slice PDF May 16, 2014

Introducing Hardy Farmer

The three years Hardy Farmer spent in the Big

Thicket formed a dramatic interlude in his life as a rancher on the Edwards Plateau, 350 miles to the west During the prolonged drought in 1917, he moved his cattle from the short grass of the higher, drier, limestone country to the open range of the Big Thicket and stayed there until


After more than half a century, old timers in the

Thicket remembered him well, and they mentioned his name with respect "Did you ever get to know Hardy Farmer?" they would say, or, "You should have known Hardy Farmer." They never said why, but it was obvious he had made an impreSSion.

We finally decided to visit him at his home in

Junction, Texas, and found him reading the paper on his shady lawn at nine o'clock in the morning. During his active years he was possibly five feet ten inches tall and weighed about 180 pounds.

He greeted us cordially. He and Mrs. Farmer had turned the operation of the ranch over to their only child, a married daughter, who was born while they were in Hardin County.

The jar command-line tool is used to create Java Archives, or JAR files. A JAR contains other files, which may be compressed using the popular ZIP format. The jar tool is used to create and modify JARs.

JAR files will someday improve the speed of downloading applets over the network. You can stick all the files an applet needs into a JAR. This offers two speed advantages:

The client needs to download only one JAR, instead of the many individual files that make up the applet. Applets are typically composed of a number of small class, graphics, and audio files. The cost of setting up a separate network connection for each one is high. Downloading a single, larger file is faster.

Some of the files in the JAR may be compressed, which makes the download a little faster. Of course, it takes a little time to decompress the files, but bandwidth is clearly the time drain du jour.

Currently, only the appletviewer tool and HotJava recognize JAR files containing applets. The major browser vendors are expected to follow suit soon.

9. Error Handling

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

When youre running a Web site, things go wrong. And when they do, its important that they are handled gracefully, so that the user experience is not too greatly diminished. In this chapter, youll learn how to handle error conditions, return useful messages to the user, and capture information that will help you fix the problem so that it does not happen again.

You have multiple virtual hosts in your configuration, and at least one of them is name-based. For name-based virtual hosts to work properly, the client must send a valid Host field in the request header. This recipe describes how you can deal with situations in which the field is not included.

Add the following lines to your httpd.conf file:

The file NoHost.cgi can contain something like the following:

Once the directives in the solution are in place, all requests made of the server that do not include a Host field in the request header will be redirected to the specified CGI script, which can take appropriate action.

Cofiant means biography. In Wales the tradition of the Cofiant developed in the nineteenth century when many hundreds were written, mainly about preachers. They usually included an account of the subject’s life, a selection of his sermons, letters and other writings and ended with tributes and an elegy.

In this poem I refer to Cofiant a Phregethau y

Parch. Thomas Williams, Llangynog. It was written by his eldest son, and the eldest of his nineteen children, my father’s namesake, John Penri Williams, and was printed in 1887. Thomas Williams was my great-great-grandfather.

Quotations from the above Cofiant and from the

Chronicles of the Princes are translated from Welsh.

I refer also to The Genealogies of Gwynedd by J.E.


Houses we’ve lived in inhabit us and history’s restless in the rooms of the mind.


We took a flat in the family house.

Years later the old neighbour opposite owned that, watching our arrival, she had said

‘Children have come to live at Number One.’

The rooms were tall and hollow. Sun printed the boards with parallelograms.

2. Servlets

Slice ePub May 27, 2014

Servlets are defined as JSR 340, and the complete specification can be downloaded.

A servlet is a web component hosted in a servlet container and generates dynamic content. The web clients interact with a servlet using a request/response pattern. The servlet container is responsible for the life cycle of the servlet, receives requests and sends responses, and performs any other encoding/decoding required as part of that.

A servlet is defined using the @WebServlet annotation on a POJO, and must extend the javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet class.

Here is a sample servlet definition:

The fully qualified class name is the default servlet name, and may be overridden using the name attribute of the annotation. The servlet may be deployed at multiple URLs:

The @WebInitParam can be used to specify an initialization parameter:

The HttpServlet interface has one doXXX method to handle each of HTTP GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, HEAD, OPTIONS, and TRACE requests. Typically the developer is concerned with overriding the doGet and doPost methods. The following code shows a servlet handling the GET request:
