Beginning Java eight APIs, Extensions and Libraries completes the Apress Java studying trip and is a finished method of studying the Java Swing, JavaFX, Java Scripting, JDBC and community programming APIs.
This publication covers the major extesnsions of the Java programming language corresponding to Swing, JavaFX, community programming, and JDBC. each one subject starts off with a dialogue of the topic's historical past. A step by step technique, with small snippets of Java code, offers easy-to-follow directions. on the finish of a subject matter, a whole and ready-to-run Java application is supplied. This publication comprises over a hundred thirty photographs and diagrams that can assist you visualize and higher comprehend the themes. greater than one hundred thirty whole courses let you perform and quick study the topics.
The Swing chapters speak about a number of points of operating with a GUI, from the very simple options of constructing a Swing program, to the main complicated themes, equivalent to adorning a Swing part with a JLayer, drag-and-drop beneficial properties, Synth Skinnable L&F, etc.
The bankruptcy on community programming covers the fundamentals of community applied sciences first, after which, the complex themes of community programming, utilizing a Java category library. It covers IPv4 and IPv6, addressing schemes, subnetting, supernetting, multicasting, TCP/IP sockets, UPD sockets, asynchronous socket I/O, etc.
The bankruptcy on JDBC presents the main points of connecting and dealing with databases corresponding to Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, DB2, Java DB (Apache Derby), Sybase, Adaptive Server wherever, and so forth. It features a whole dialogue on processing a ResultSet and a RowSet. It discusses easy methods to use the RowSetFactory, to acquire a RowSet item of a particular kind. operating with huge gadgets (LOBs), equivalent to Blob, Clob, and NClob, is roofed intimately with Java code examples and database scripts.
Ruby is a fully natural object-oriented scripting language written in C and designed with Perl and Python features in brain. whereas its roots are in Japan, Ruby is slowly yet definitely gaining floor within the US. The target of Yukihiro Matsumoto, author of Ruby and writer of this publication, is to include the strengths of languages like Perl, Python, Lisp and Smalltalk.
This e-book is an in-depth creation to Erlang, a programming language perfect for any scenario the place concurrency, fault tolerance, and quickly reaction is vital. Erlang is gaining common adoption with the arrival of multi-core processors and their new scalable method of concurrency. With this advisor you will write advanced concurrent courses in Erlang, despite your programming historical past or event.

Badge notification is the technical term for displaying a notification in the start screen. To use the lock-screen notification feature, you need to use the BadgeUpdateManager class. This class can update the content of an application’s lock-screen icon and even present text (if the application has been configured to be the primary lock-screen app—by default, the user’s calendar). Listing 2-7 shows how to update an application’s badge using the notification mechanisms of BadgeUpdateManager. In the example, you update the number displayed next to the application’s lock-screen.
Developing for it is also somewhat so. The broad review of Windows 8 in this chapter should prepare you for the basics covered in the next chapter and give you the foundational knowledge you need for Windows 8 app development. You learned • The traits, features, and properties of interacting with the Windows 8 UI • How HTML is used in Windows 8 development • The various technologies that can be used in Windows 8 development 33 Chapter 2 Getting the Basics Right There are certain basic developer workflows to which you have to become accustomed if you intend to build Windows 8 apps, regardless of the technology stack you choose to use.
NET languages are great at what they’re great at, and of course native languages are excellent when weighed against the design goals that drove their development. Because of this fact, there are gaps that one language or technology covers but that another language doesn’t. This is no different with the modern Windows 8 programming interfaces. Because Windows is primarily native (and all other languages are projections of the native interfaces so developers in a specific language can continue to work in their language and technology of choice), many features in the API landscape remain only in the native world.
