Agile Dictionary definition: 

1) marked by ready ability to move with quick ease and grace
2) having a quick resourceful and adaptable character.

The attributes inscribed by the adjective ‘agile’ are qualities we all personally want, and are intrinsically desirable. Transferring these worthy properties over to the software development process if precisely what the Agile principle are all about.
!Agile Manifesto
We prefer:

|Individuals and interactions |OVER| process and tools|
|Working software |OVER| comprehensive documentation|
|Customer collaboration |OVER| contract negotiation|
|Responding to change |OVER| following a plan|
!Agile Evolution
The traditional waterfall development cycle started at the top with Planning:

Agile still follows this process, but instead of being followed once it is iterated over many times being applied to each requirement (user story).

|''Tradition Goal''|''Agile Goal''|
|Specialist | Multi-Disciplined|
|Individuals | Teams|
|Plans| Business Value|
|Specifications| Working Software|

!Lean Principles
|D| Deliver Fast|
|E| Eliminate Waste|
|L| Learn Constantly|
|I| Integrate Quality|
|V| Value the whole|
|E| Engage Everyone|
|R| Relentless improvement|
!Primary features of Agile
*Building Software Iteratively and Incrementally
*A [[Product Champion]]
* A [[Product Backlog]] prioritized to deliver business value
*Focus on daily bandwidth communication
*Daily stand-up meetings for the whole team
* Simple visual controls in workspace to report progress and issues
*Risk mitigation
*continuous process improvement and good practice

Story Cards:  As a .<role>...  I want to <goal>....   So that <benefit>......

* A tiddler's tags are show ''above'' the tiddlers title (instead of in a right-floated box).
* A tiddler's tagging list is shown ''below'' the tiddlers content (instead of in a left-floated box).
These layout changes are done with small changes to ViewTemplate (See TagglyTaggingViewTempplate) and EditTemplate (see TagglyTaggingEditTemplate) and with some CSS from TagglyTaggingStyles.
The default TW tagging macro is called "tagging". TagglyTagging provides an enhanced version of this called "tagglyTagging". So in the TagglyTaggingViewTemplate, macro="tagging" is replaced by "macro="tagglyTagging". The tagglyTagging macro lets you do things like:
* Sort the tagged list ascending or descending by title, modified date or created date
* Format the list in columns
* Hide the tagged list
It also remembers your preference on a per-tiddler basis. 
The "New Here" button is optional but very useful. It lets you quickly create a new tiddler that is automatically tagged with the tag you're looking at. Eg if you are looking at Addresses, clicking "new here" creates a new Address.
This is also optional. Because we often want to view a tag as a tiddler this makes the default action when you click on a tag. You can access to other tag functions by clicking the drop down icon to the right of the tag.
TagglyTagging (also known as "TagglyWiki Style Tagging") is set of plugins, templates and styles you can install in your TiddlyWiki that let you use tagging in powerful and useful ways.
Actually a lot less than there used to be since TiddlyWiki version 2.0! (TagglyTagging introduced the concept that a tag was a tiddler and vice-versa. Since version 2.0 this concept central to tagging in TiddlyWiki. See "Where did it come from?" below for more information).
Chris here it comes.
3 days of SQL

Normalise 1st, 2nd, and 3rd order:
 i) Duplicate Rows into new table
ii) connect related tables with foreign keys
iii) Split coloumn that contains multiple data i.e. First name, middle name, last name

VIEW -- use create view if more than 4 inner joins

LIKE 'abc%' -- try and avoid % whildcard at start of search string
RANK  e.g. 1,1,1,3,4,4,6,   DENSE_RANK e.g. 1,1,1,2,3,3,4 (note now contiguous numbering)
COUNT -- (*) all records, (column) non null entries

DELETE & TRUNCATE -- don't forget the WHERE or deletes whole table.



OUTPUT Inserted, deleted
Indexing text fields, contains, freetext

XML fields, input/output

Stored functions, -- can return tables, slower than stored procedures
Stored procdures, 

Dynamic SQL and scurity issues e.g. comments in input, anws. use stored procedures

Execution plans.

TagglyTagging lets you better utilise the power of tagging your TiddlyWiki data. 
A brief list of what you can do with TagglyTagging:
* Dynamically define the structure of your data.
* Avoid hand maintaining "index" pages of your tiddlers.
* Make all your data easily locatable via your tag heirachy.

Other reasons you should give TagglyTagging a try:
* You find you aren't getting a lot of value from tagging your tiddlers in TiddlyWiki.
* You are sometimes annoyed by tag popup menus especially when they are longer than your page.

Sounds good but I'm not feelin' it...
* It is hard to explain without a demonstration. Try the TagglyTaggingTutorial.
The easiest way is to download an empty file from [[Download]]. You can of course install each component listed at TagglyTagging.
See [[TagglyTagging History]].
Who decides truth? Is it the media? Is it created by endless repetition of words, phrases,  pre-canned answers, ideas, and arguments? Are people conditioned in to automatic responses? Or do we make our own minds up?

If I were to say ''"Conspiracy"'' what word spring into your mind next?

It is a ''theory'' of mine that the media placed the word ''"theory"'' there. Why has the word theory been chosen?

A dictionary definition of the word ''theory'':  "a plausible or scientifically acceptable general principle or body of principles offered to explain phenomena" e.g.  <the wave theory of light>

So perhaps the meaning of the word “Theory” in itself is not important to our way of thinking, or else we all would already appreciate the veracity of the “911 Conspiracy”.  But what do our minds connect with the tuple of words “Conspiracy Theory” ? To answer, it is what the press has most often followed that particular word tuple up with, i.e. other media labelled “Conspiracy Theories”, e.g. The moon landing was a hocks, JFK shooting, little green Aliens under investigation by the FBI. These ideas linked together lean towards another definition of ''theory'' as: “speculation”, ”unproved assumption”, ”conjecture”. Whilst emotionally the media's linking works, every rational mind knows that there is no value in the inferences made. 

No rational inferences can be made by linking together unrelated theories, as each idea stands alone and has its own value, and when facts start to be found, a "theory" moves on towards possibility. With further evidence, a possibility becomes a probability, and with irrefutable evidence what started as a "theory" solidifies as fact. Moving on...

9/11. My initial reaction was shock and horror at watching buildings literally explode before my eyes. Then the news kicks in, with the explanation of collapse; aviation fuel burning and melting the frame work, etc. At the time I thought it surprising, but that is what I was being told. Later on when I first heard of a 911 Conspiracy Theory, I thought impossible, even if there where one, a secret like that could not be kept, we have free press, the truth would get out.

So years have gone by, and I have not looked, or questioned 911. After all we have free unbiased press where journalists are uninhibited and can print whatever they like. Any conspiracy would be all over the papers. Wouldn’t it?

More years pass, and as they do these days, more and more immigrants come in to the UK, and all is happy. Then more come, and problems start, but all is happy on the news. Another year, and yet more immigration, and I find I would be hard pressed to communicate with the children at the school of my seminal days, due to their lack of English, but still all is happy in the press. No one mentions Immigration. No debates, no articles, except a few on how hard all immigrants work and how lazy white males are. All is happy. But I'm not. In the end after 10+ years it finally dawned on me. The press is deceiving me with propaganda and is far from free, as it is not free to talk about the biggest issue to affect my country since World War II.

Back to 9/11, well the next time I heard mention of it and “Conspiracy Theory" I had a wild act of free will, and I thought to myself, perhaps I should check for myself. Just in case. is a good place to look.

What did I find? Surprisingly, not a lot about conspiracy. Very little in fact. But there was an awful lot of facts about "demolition", and furthermore a third tower that was also demolished (or "pulled" as the owner put it), a whole tower spookily implodes in seconds, and somehow I had previously missed "building 7" in all the countless hours of frenzy news coverage that followed the attack. 

As an engineer, albeit a software engineer, but with a degree in microelectronics and computing, I have at least a small background in physics. Also being a father with kids I have children, with whom I have built countless towers, and then collapsed them (not having explosives to demolition them). 

From the experience as a father observing tower collapses, they never land in a neat little tumular pile on the floor. They always topple one way or another. Even towers where every member has no joining bracing i.e. stacks of dominos. Perfect vertical collapse never seems to happen for me. And as for building towers with wooden block central cores, ringed with domino floors, not unsurprisingly the core remains standing after the surround “floors” have been destabilised. 

I have never seen a tower block being demolished at fist hand, but I have watched a number of videos of them before looking into 911. and remembering them, I found some more videos and saw perfect vertical collapse, time after time.

Pyroclastic flows. Wow, these are exciting things to see, and I've been luck enough to witnessed a real one happening without endangering my life, when Mt. Sakurajima volcano had an eruption back in 1998. The explosive clouds of volcanic eruptions look just the same to me as the explosive clouds of seen in the 911 demolitions.


Linking my common sense and life experiences to what is found on the [[http:\\ site]] leads me to the following conclusions.

The Demolition:
  i) ''Yep the 3 towers where demolished'' with high explosives (Thermite)
 ii) "Collapse" is a word of miss information

The Conspiracy:
i)	still know very little about it, or who is responsible.
ii)	terrorist may have crashed the planes, but it must have been an elite powerful enough to control governments, their military, and international media that demolished the 3 towers.

The media:
i)	is not free or independent, and one way or another controlled internationally
ii)	we are all more susceptible to control through language, fear, and repeated impressions than one would think.

Further conclusions:
i) The culprits have not come to justice, and are sure to commit further simulated terrorist attacks.
ii) 911 is only a smoking gun that lead to bigger geo-political chicanery.
iii) 911 is also an Achilles heel in a possible geopolitical, financial, demographical, and class warfare by an elite, as it makes us aware that we have been deceived and mind controlled at least once, and then we begin to wonder where else might we be being manipulated, and what else that is obvious wrong are we overlooking?

Apathy. Does it matter ?
i) Yes it does, as your freedom has been eroded more by 9/11 and the ANTI-TERRORISM laws.
  a) As an example, just last month (July 2010) it was reported that a commuter in a overcrowded train in England had the temerity of taking a photo to show just how dangerous the overcrowding was. Upon complaining and showing the picture to the station master, instead of an apology, the police were called for his arrest, as the Post 9/11 ANTI_TERRORISM laws make taking photos on trains a crime.
ii) It costs you money. Loads, and loads of money. Who do you think pays for all of the ANT_TERRORISM laws, red-tape, queues at the airports, demands for id ? You do, big time.

Just one little thing that we can all do:
i)  Never repeat the lie ensconced with the word "collapse", instead always, always talk the truth by using saying "9/11 DEMOLITION" instead.

Welcome to my wiki site, which is designed primarily for my own use, but is open to all as I hope that some of the technical information ensconsed here will be of use to others.

Search engines are not smart enough to open the "tiddler" that matched your search.

Dev technique to make web pages more interactive by tweaking small amounts of of data, so a web page dose not have to be reloaded.

!Aspect Oriented Programming

Adding new methods into a class, before/after/around for either the caller or callee sides of a method call. [[Javassist]] is an example to enable ASP, and so to is the AOP interface in spring.

[[Poin Cut]] is a [[Join Point]] plus an [[Aspect]]
[[Join Point]] the target position for code changes, i.e. before or after a method call (often this will be multiple methods)
[[Aspect]] is the method calls to be inserted at the [[Join Point]] 
[[Advice]] is the concrete implementation of the Aspect, i.e. the actual code
OpenLink Findur's scripting language, which is syntatically very much like C but where arrays have been replaced with in-memory tables for advanced interaction with database tables.

AVS scripts are uploaded and stored in the Findur connected database. These can subsequently be run from the TradeManager, or as a Task, or as part of a Workflow.

!Example AVS script
void main()
	print("Start of Example 1 Main Script\n");

	/* Assignments */
	x = 10 ;                       // int
	ld_amt = 15.2;                 // double
	ls_val = "The value of X is "; // string

	/* ints can be appened to strings ... */
	print( ls_val + x + "\n");

	/* ... but doubles need to be converted */
	print("The value of ld_amt is " + STR_DoubleToStr(ld_amt,3) + "\n");

	/* for loop */
	for( i=0; i<10; i++)
		/* if statement */
		if (i<5)
		    x = i * 4;
		    x += 10;
Assertions check assumptions in a program that are expected to always be true, as opposed to error checking where a failure may occur during normal execution, such as a user typing an invalid number into an input field.

E.g. A return from obtaining a column index from a known table should always succeed.
void main()
   string sFnc = "fnc_MyFunction: ";
   int iColNumA = TABLE_GetColNum( tTable,"columnA");
   int iColNumB = TABLE_GetColNum( tTable,"columnB");

   // Exit function if either column could not be found.
   if (    !fnc_ASSERT_Found(iColNumA,sFnc+"columnA not found")
        || !fnc_ASSERT_Found(iColNumB,sFnc+"columnB not found") ) 


AVS has no intrinsic support for assertion checks, but a library can easily be written e.g. {{{}}} where all ASSERT functions return TRUE if assertion is true and FALSE if the assertion fails. Upon assertion failure the sErrMsg passed in is logged to a file, along with the name of the running script.

The overloading of asserts provides an orthogonal interface which is not always found in the AVS API.

int fnc_ASSERT_TranNum(int iTranNum, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Zero(int iValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotZero(int iValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Zero(double iValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotZero(double iValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_True(int iValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_False(int iValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Positive(int iValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_Negative(int iValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Found(int iValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotFound(int iValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Equal(int iA, int iB, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_Equal(string sA, string sB, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Empty(string sValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotEmpty(string sValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Null(string sValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotNull(string sValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Null(TRANSACTION* tranValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotNull(TRANSACTION* tranValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_Null(TablePtr tValue, string sErrMsg);
int fnc_ASSERT_NotNull(TablePtr tValue, string sErrMsg);

int fnc_ASSERT_OLFReturnSucceed(int iValue, string sErrMsg);

An example immplementation of {{{fnc_ASSERT_TranNum}}}:

// Findur transaction number (tran_num) are in the set of natural number,
int fnc_ASSERT_TranNum(int iValue, string sErrMsg)
   if (iValue <= 0)
      fnc_LOG_Error("fnc_ASSERT_TranNum", "failed: "+iValue+" "+sErrMsg);
      return FALSE;

   return TRUE;  
The good practice of supplying column names in table gets [ {{{TABLE_GetStringN(table,"col name",row)}}} ], to attenuate the brittleness of the speedier code [ {{{TABLE_GetString(table,col,row)}}} ] that refers to columns by their index, can be enhance to garner the best of both worlds by encapsulating a lazy look up of the column index by name in a method.

int _iStockTypeColNum = NOT_FOUND;

string fnc_GetStockType(TablePtr tInventoryFIFO,int iRow)
   string sFnc = "fnc_GetStockType: ";

   if (_iStockTypeColNum == NOT_FOUND)
      _iStockTypeColNum = TABLE_GetColNum(tInventoryFIFO,"stock_type");
      if (!fnc_ASSERT_Found(_iStockTypeColNum, sFnc+"stock_type"))
         return NULL_string;

   return TABLE_GetString(tInventoryFIFO,_iStockTypeColNum,iRow);
A good idiom to follow when writing AVS functions is to immediately create a string {{{sFnc}}} to hold the function name. This simple step leads to a number of benefits when combined with logging functions:

#. Code cut and pasted from one function to another does not have to be modified with regards to function names.
#. Reduces the amount of typing for logging.
#. Increases consistency.
#. Impedence for changing a function name is reduced with respect to logging statments.
#. Facilitates a logging standard where every statement must identify in what function it is made.
#. With nested logging a "stack trace" like error trail is obtained.

void main()
   string sFnc = "Main";

   if ( !fnc_A() ) fnc_LOG_Error(sFnc,"fnc_A");
   if ( !fnc_B() ) fnc_LOG_Error(sFnc,"fnc_B");

in fnc_A()
    string sFnc = "fnc_A";
    if ( error ) 
       fnc_LOG_Error(sFnc,"Something went wrong");
       return FALSE;

    return TRUE;

void fnc_B()
    if ( error ) 
       fnc_LOG_Error(sFnc,"Something went wrong");
       return FALSE;

    return TRUE;
The process of converting legacy AVS scripts into OpenJVS (Java) code is straight forward enough. With the creation of a few helper libraries, such as [[JVS Idiom: Assert]] and the uses of [[JVS Idiom: Table Destroy]] etc the conversion process will be even easier and the result is of a higher standard by virtue of being simpler but yet detecting error earlier by the use of Java's exceptions.

There are still a few gota's to watch out, and that is primarily caused by Java's weakness with null references [[JVS Idiom: Null Strings]] combined with OpenJVS's {{{NULL_TABLE, NULL_TRAN,}}} etc  

Another problem is that argt is no longer a global variable, and needs to be passed arround [[JVS: No global argt]].

Partial automation of the migration process can be achieved through the use of regular expressions in a [[sed]] script like this one [[AvsToJvs.sed]]

AVS has no concept of Java’s Classes, Interfaces, or Packages but this does not mean that AVS programmers have not already used some of these concepts, albeit without any intrinsic language support. Which has been done through the repeated used of good programming idioms, and naming standards that gives the mirages of  classes and packages have been created

This workshop covers some basic Unix commands as provided by Cygwin, and looks at the sed command in particular; which follows on with a demonstration of how to use sed in conjunction with the AVStoJVS.sed file to convert an AVS script automatically into a JVS script.

Eclipse’s functionality is also further expanded, with examples of how to configure it to view AVS .mls files and how to use and add JavaDoc to converted AVS scripts.  

Cygwin is:

Enumerations are simple to use, and simple to define in Java. Using them is as easy as counting the fingers on your hand. And like the fingers on your hand when coordinated together they are incredibly flexible and dextrous. In short, Java enumerations can be used just as adroitly as fingers in terms of solutions in Java.

It is a bright sunny day and we head off for a picnic, lay the contents full hamper of sumptuous food upon a tartan blanket in a field on the bank of a languid river and begin to eat. Then a rain cloud appears above our heads and it starts to pour. The rain is like an exception for the picnic, which can be dealt with or not. By putting up a large umbrella the picnic can limp on, otherwise a run for cover entails the end our picnic.

 Java exceptions can be handled or not, in the same way as pincers deal with rain. When an exception is handled a Java program can continue, like the umbrella over the picnic. Of course by carrying on all might not be the same, just as sheltering under an umbrella in the rain is not the same as sprawling in the sun, but still huddling under an umbrella is not the complete end to or abandonment of a picnic, and handling an exception in Java is just the same, it is not the end of the program, it continues; whereas an unhandled exception guarantees the end of the picnic and likewise the end of a Java program.

[[AVS]] scripts have boolean values for {{{TRUE}}} and {{{FALSE}}} of 1 and 0 respectively, but don't have a boolean data-type. Instead, boolean are stored in integers e.g.
int iBoolean = TRUE;

Storing boolean in integers gives scope for values other than {{{TRUE}}} or {{{FALSE}}} to be stored. The following table shows how [[AVS]] deals with non intrinsic boolean values is if statements:


In conclusion, zero is {{{FALSE}}}, and all other integer values are {{{TRUE}}}.

Findur's Account Manager is a fully integrated subledger accounting system.

The manager simply extracts values, then makes calculations on the data, and then posts or unposts the resulting values into the subledgers.

The term Accounting is derived via French from the Latin word Computare. 

Double Entry accounting was a major breakthrough in accountancy in Northern Italy in the late 14 century. The break through in using Double Entry was that it improve accuracy and veracity of accounts. This in turn enabled both an expansion of complex over seas trading and the syndication of capital raising for projects too cost for individuals. Whilst increasing trust in accounting this system did not and still does not provide a panacea for protection against those that cook the books, it does ensures that figures balance, but does nothing to ensure that the figures entered are indeed honest.

The two main branches of accounting are:

*Management accounting
*Financial accounting

The former Management accounting being for he purpose of the business decision making process, and the later Financial Accounting being for official purposes such as auditing, and investors.

Amdahl's Law measures the speedup gained by adding more processors; states that there is an upper limit on the speed improvements yielded by adding more processors. 

According to the law, if as little as 10% of computing power is invested in overhead, then even a hundred-fold increase in processing power yields only 9.17 times the processing speed.

The [[Scalability Crash Barrier]] and the [[Scalability Cost Barrier]] when scaling either makes little or no difference or just costs too much to gain any significant return.

Any application that shares data , partial results at checkpoints, is four our purposes stateful and sooner or later succumbs to Amdahl's Law.

[[IMDG]] ~In-Memory Data Grid is the antidote for Amdahl's Law, by overcoming the statefulness challenge.
Anglo-Saxon Literature by J.Carle, M.A. 1884:

Preliminary View: Anglo-Saxon poems are noted for their flowing text and use of alliterations rather than the earlier metered forms of poetry from the classics.

Latin literature grew from beholding Greek literature and in a similar way Anglo-Saxon literature developed and matured from that of Latin but differed as unlike the external Latin developments, Anglo-Saxon also grew internally from Latin culture.

Surprisingly in the Roman Empire literature in arts, science, and theology where dominated by Greek writing, where as Law and Governance was in Latin as one might expect. Greek was also used for the majority of Christian texts, and it was not until the splitting of the Roman Empire in the 5 century A.D. into two that Latin came up on top in the West leaving Constainople in the East with Greek, thus bifurcating East and West by language. Henceforth the Latin West rubbed off on the Anglo-Saxon heathens.

Christians favored Allegory with the tendency to use symbolism, and parables, as in those times it was often dangerous to be a Christian. The love of allegory is also something avowed a plenty in Anglo-Saxon literature.

An African writer Lactantius told the Assyrian's fable of the Phonix in 170 lines, hexameters and pentameters and most likely served as a pattern to the old Anglo-Saxon poet. Ovoid also told the story.

There is not much extant material of early heathen Anglo-Saxon or the diaties that were worshipped, although some ideas can be gleand from Sources such as Cicero, Ceasoe etal. The names of the days of the week derive from heathen gods, as do the festivals of Christmas and Easter. "Easter" being a heathen name for the Pagan festival in April for the welcoming of the strengthening sun.

Christians favored ''Allegory'' - a visible symbol representing an abstract idea. A short moral story.
''meter'' - Rythnmic schemes
''hexameters'' - Standard Latin form of a line consisting of six metrical feet, as in Homer’s Iliad.
''dactylos'' - Greek for finger or toe. Long short,short or "dum-diddy" rythum
''tumular'' relics - consiting in a heap; formed in a heap or hillock 
''hortatory'' - to encorage someone. To exaught someone in order to get them to do something
''fibulae'' - latin for broach, also outer of  two thin bones in lower leg
''blematical'' - ???
''demascened'' - to decorate metal with wavey patterns, "It was ''demascened'' with device of coiled twigs."
''apocryphal'' - of doubtful authenticity, "of apocryphal materials in Anglo-Saxon history"
''tines'' - a sharp point, "tines of iron"
''allegory'' - a visible symbol representing an abstract idea, usually with a moral theme.
''homily'' - a short lecture, discourse on a moral theme. 
''indictment'' - a formal document written for a prosecuting attorney charging a person with some offense. "under the indictment of heresy"

The ''Bank of England'' is now 300 years old and started life as a private bank to raise money to go to war for William and Mary.

Now it is nationalised and is responsible for the financial stability of the country, which it maintains via the [[MPC]] which sets the [[Repo rate]], effectively the [[Base Rate]] according to inflation targets set by the government and measured by [[CPI]].

Occasionally the Bank of England steps in to ensure stability, such as propping up Northern Rock and stopping the first run on a UK bank for 150 years. However it dose not always do so, as in the cases of BCCI Bank and Bearings Banks.

Bill Gates is trying to subvert the world by defaulting bullet points in word to indent and capitalise bullet points, when it is better to do neither of these.

!What are Bullet Points?
Bullet Points are of the computer age.
* They came from the humble shopping list.
* The oversized dot was introduced by the Word Processor.
!Why use Bullet Points?
When a short list is needed, or when points of action  would be lost within a wordy paragraph, use Bullet Points to expose their importance. Also when an order or priority is of importance, then numbers or letters can be used as well.
!The advantages of Bullet Points
The visual attraction is a very strong for Bullet Points, which draws your reader's attention. The space that surrounds them lets each point breath as an individual recognised for their contribution, rather than one hemmed in by a crowd.
!When Bullet Points go wrong.
The biggest mistake is to go over 7 enumerated items. Incorrect or missing semicolon is another problem. But probably the most confusing is to miss match the grammar of list elements. 

!Styles, good, bad, and ugly
The two major variations to starting lists are:
* those that use a full stop
* and those that use a semicolon.

Full stops are used when the opening statement is complete, where as a semicolon is used when the statement is incomplete. The latter is known as a stem statement, which can be completed by each or all of the statements within the following list.

e.g. with a full stop
Use short, simple sentences.
* Keep sentences mostly short and simple.
* Use lists to break up lengthy sentences.
* Keep your ideas in a sequence.
e.g. with a semicolon

!Credit Default Swap

An inssurance policy taken out against the chance of a loan defaulting which will repay that loan.

For example a pension company gets an extra high rate of return by lending funds to "Cowboy Ltd", but then as it is worried they my default the pension company also bys a CDO to cover their exposure to risk from "Rock Solid Bank". If "Cowboy Ltd" cannot repay then "Rock Solid Bank" will keeping the pension funds safe.

CDO's are tradeable after purchase and their value will go up and down inline with the credit rating of the company for whom the loan is covering.

Unlike life insurrance, CDO's can be taken out by a third party whom has no asset at risk and may be merly speculating that a firm will go bust and there for a windfall ppayout can be obtained.

[[Calypso workflow]]
[[Calypso events|PSEvent]] PSEvent, PSEventDomainChange, PSEventTrade handled by PSConnection passing in a PSSubscriber implementation.
[[Calypso status]]

![[Calypso Engine]]s
{{{com.calypso.engine.Engine}}} abstract base class for all Engines. implements PSSubscriber

An engine is any application that automatically responds to certain type of events from the EventServer.

1. Write engine, one abstract method to implement: {{{process(PSEvent event)}}}

2. Establish engine and its subscriptions via [[SQL]] in the database.
Events are dynamically generated based upon the [[Calypso workflow]] configuration. For each "[[Calypso status]]" in a [[Calypso workflow]], an event is generated when the trade / transfer / message reaches this [[Calypso status]].

E.g When a trade moves to status VERIFIED it generates the event VERIFIED_TRADE event.
!Calypso Status

''Calypso Status'' Is synonymous with a state within a state digram know as a [[Calypso workflow]]. A ''Calypso status'' changes as the workflow is followed from state to state, and [[Calypso events]] are generated with each transition.
Workflow is required to carryout any back office functionality.
The idea is for the work flow to carryout [[STP]] and for the user only to intervene in exceptional circumstances.

There are a number of engines running in the background, which react to events, e.g. a trade is saved, a quote is saved. a payment is settled. Based on the configuration of the workflow, new  events will be generated: a [[confirmation]], a payment, a [[posting]], a [[position]].

The workflow is managed by the Calypso DataServer. No engines need to run, however tasks with kick-off cut-off timers will need the [[TaskEngine]].
Tiddlywiki can no longer save its html file in Internet Explorer 9.0 or Firefox 17.0 because they have been updated and saving is considered to be a security hole!

One work around, the installation of TiddlyFox plugin for Firefox, but this fail to work for me - no idea why.

Instead I have installed Opera 12.14, and placed TiddlySave.jar in the directory of this tiddlywiki file, as directed a helpfull post.

Oracle bought Tangosol Coherence

Coherence is a Data Grid, a distributed memory store, aims are reliability, availability, performance. With automatic discovery and self healing architecture that uses no fail over, no master slaves, no central registries, & no voting.

P2P architecture, No Voting, each cache node maintains a cluster state.
Custom UDP packaging of messages for broadcast information, TCP for PPP

Get: Local, if not local then get from remote cache node.
Put: Synchronous to Primary cache node and backup (mandated to be on a remote machine), asynchronous invalidates modified object stored in remote “Near” caches.

N levels of backup of each object, where each object is stored on a different machine.

Key is an object, from which a hash is used to determine which machine it will be found on, if the target machine is down, then has used again to the backup

Grid automatically reconfigures upon the loss of a cache nodes.

Mutation queues to modify objects in the grid.

Continuous object queries distributed, built up from java/c++ object (not SQL).
Aggregators are distributed to the objects that are being watched.

Core system written in Java
C++/Java no 3rd party libraries


[[Data Grid]]
[[Near Cache]]


1000 nodes joining simultaneously, C++ extensions are in development (implemented .NET)
Network, is the main bottle neck, but maximised by the custom network packet building and UDP.


1. What self balancing is carried out to mitigate the different CPU, Disk, & Network performance of each data cache node with relation to the location and quantity of objects stored at each node?

2. What are the performance trade-offs associated with the benefits of increased data integrity gained from increasing the levels of backup?

3. What strategy is used for choosing the location of backup objects and can this be modified to take into account physical topology?

4. WAN? How dose Tangosol coherence approach the problem of high latency nodes?

!Answers by me

1. At the moment no consideration is given, although it is being looked into.

2. A put into the cache will not return until all the backups have been safely completed, hence the time taken will be dependant upon the slowest node. In the extreme case every node holds a copy, which is a Replicated Topology that has limited scalability but is ideal for caching of involitile data.

3. None at present.

4. Best not to include high latency nodes in the same cluster, instead synchronise data between two separate clusters.

Compser transactions are used to link a number of deals together.

A transaction with a "Composer" toolset will be using the "COM" instrument.

To extract linked transactions from AVS scripts, query the {{{tran_comp_link}}} table. e.g.
 sSql = "SELECT linked_deal_tracking_num AS tran_num "
        + "FROM tran_comp_link "
        + "WHERE composer_deal_tracking_num = "+ iComposerDealNumber;

Conspiracy as Governance - understanding the conspirators

Spot lighting the inner thinking of the New World Order conspirators

apriori - a classic algorithm for finding association rules. 
One of the idioms of good software practice is to mark fields as final if they never change after construction. However when constructing linked lists, maps, trees,etc, it is impossible to set the links to other nodes, until after more than one object has been constructed. This is where the researcher brought in the concept of ''Settled''.

''Settled'' is the concept of the point at which an object no longer changes.

Settled Read - settled after the first read
Settled Write - settled after the first write
Settled Constructor - settled within the constructor

The researcher's big data study confirmed that in many cases fields and objects do settle, i.e. the don't change after construction, the first read, or first write.

Advice for language writers, have the keyword mutable instead of final, as the majority of fields in objects are practically used as final anyway.

First there was chaos then there was source control, soon after there was feature-branching and along with it merging and chaos pervades once again; now out of the darkness comes the shinning new idiom of continuous-integration to fight back against the disorder once more and attempt to create peace and harmony again.

The problem: Multiple features are developed simultaneously for a project where each feature has a different life cycle and overlapping dependencies. This can be managed with source control and branches for each new feature aka feature-branches. However the chaos and darkness ensues the moment re-integration merges being, because each feature-branch has been incubated in isolation and hence has not evolved along with any interdependent changes in other feature branches.

The solution: Continuous integration, to pro-actively seek out the integration pain points in advance - by merging immediately any and every change into a continuous-integration branch. The continuous-integration branch then builds and alerts are sent to developers, whom must then work out how to deal with the overlapping changes being made simultaneously in other independent feature-branches. 

Tools to Facilitate: The latest bread of build tools, such as [[Jenkins]], [[Cruise Control]], et al can automate the continuous-integration process, as another build within the continuous-build paradigm. They can control which branches are candidates for continuous-integration, as not all will be, and the frequency of process.

[[JAD]] a very useful tool for looking inside 3rd party class files (Java decompiler).
[[Javassist]] a very useful technology to dynamically modify java byte code.
An agent sits between a Tier Extension [[TE]] and the [[CoreFirst Server]], and is responsible for classifying transactions and forwarding start,stop, and out of tier calls onto the server.
http access to the [[CoreFirst Server]] is usually {{{http://localhost:8081/corefirst}}} where ''localhost'' is replaced with your server's machine name.
Collects and analyzes chunks of data sent by [[Agents|CoreFirst Agent]] containing transaction data, onward calls and [[UOW]] timings. Data is limited to being stored in [[Oracle Databases|Oracle]].

Data can subsequently viewed vi the [[Console|CoreFirst Console]] connect with http://hostname:8081/corefirst 
|[[Association Key]]|Unique key for a UOW|
|Compound Transaction|A chain of //Transactions//|
|[[CoreFirst Agent]]|Run side by side to a Tier Extension, classifies ''transactions'' and forwards instrumentation data to the [[CoreFirst Server]]|
|Service Class|Defines the priority of a //Transaction//|
|Tier|A monitored software edifice, usually one process, but can also be a layer in a software stack|
|[[CoreFirst Tier Extension]]|Monitors & controls performance on a //tier// and sends captured data to //Context Agents//|
|CoreFirst Tier Handle|The tier handle returned by ottiTierStart and obtained when a tier starts|

End to End business transaction monitoring.
Visualization of enterprise architecture.
Ability to follow the flow of transactions.

Application monitoring software.
Classification of business transaction.
Prioritization of transactions across tiers. 


Dependability - Critical business can be prioritized over the prosaic. 

Performance - Pinch points can be identified and improvements empirically proven with comparisons of historic data.

Utilization - By prioritizing transactions the peaks of demand can be smoothed making creating enhanced performance and maximum utilization of infrastructure.

Reliability - Notification of broken [[SLA]]s together with the enhanced ability to pin point the problems aids fast resolution.

Capacity Planning - Can see trends in historical transaction data and the infrastructure loadings, and use this to plan future needs.


Instrumentation is placed into tiers and within stacks, where it collects records and forwards measurements to a central server. On which, data is aggregated, collated and made available for both historical and real-time analysis.

!DataSynapse Tier Extension

!DataSynapse's Data References

Instead of passing large data blocks around a network, DS has DataReference's which work very much like pointers used in C++ to pass data from function to function, but in this case the references are passed from machine to machine via serialisation.

The use of DataReference's saves network band-width by reducing the amount of unproductive data transfer. For example, a DataReference can be passed back to a client as a result from an [[Engine]], the client could then pass on the reference to another process/Engine for consumption without ever having to have received a much large result package.

C++ can benefit from using references as [[BLOB]]s in the for of {{{byte[]}}} although it cannot automatically pass Objects like Java, due to its inherent lack of serialization.

''Date Plugin for TiddlyWiki version 2.x''
^^author: Eric Shulman - ELS Design Studios
license: [[Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License|]]^^
^^last update: <<date tiddler "DDD, MMM DDth, YYYY hh:0mm:0ss">>^^

There are quite a few calendar generators, reminders, to-do lists, 'dated tiddlers' journals, blog-makers and GTD-like schedule managers that have been built around TW.  While they all have different purposes, and vary in format, interaction, and style, in one way or another each of these plugins displays and/or uses date-based information to make finding, accessing and managing relevant tiddlers easier.  This plugin provides a general approach to embedding dates and date-based links/menus within tiddler content.

You can ''specify a date using a combination of year, month, and day number values or mathematical expressions (such as "Y+1" or "D+30")'', and then just display it as formatted date text, or create a ''link to a 'dated tiddler''' for quick blogging, or create a ''popup menu'' containing the dated tiddler link plus links to ''tiddlers that were changed'' as well as any ''scheduled reminders'' for that date.
When installed, this plugin defines a macro: {{{<<date [mode] [date] [format] [linkformat]>>}}}.  All of the macro parameters are optional and, in it's simplest form, {{{<<date>>}}}, it is equivalent to the ~TiddlyWiki core macro, {{{<<today>>}}}.

However, where {{{<<today>>}}} simply inserts the current date/time in a predefined format (or custom format, using {{{<<today [format]>>}}}), the {{{<<date>>}}} macro's parameters take it much further than that:
* [mode] is either ''display'', ''link'' or ''popup''.  If omitted, it defaults to ''display''.  This param let's you select between simply displaying a formatted date, or creating a link to a specific 'date titled' tiddler or a popup menu containing a dated tiddler link, plus links to changes and reminders.
* [date] lets you enter ANY date (not just today) as ''year, month, and day values or simple mathematical expressions'' using pre-defined variables, Y, M, and D for the current year, month and day, repectively.  You can display the modification date of the current tiddler by using the keyword: ''tiddler'' in place of the year, month and day parameters.  Use ''tiddler://name-of-tiddler//'' to display the modification date of a specific tiddler.  You can also use keywords ''today'' or ''filedate'' to refer to these //dynamically changing// date/time values.  
* [format] and [linkformat] uses standard ~TiddlyWiki date formatting syntax.  The default is "YYYY.0MM.0DD"
>^^''DDD'' - day of week in full (eg, "Monday"), ''DD'' - day of month, ''0DD'' - adds leading zero^^
>^^''MMM'' - month in full (eg, "July"), ''MM'' - month number, ''0MM'' - adds leading zero^^
>^^''YYYY'' - full year, ''YY'' - two digit year, ''hh'' - hours, ''mm'' - minutes, ''ss'' - seconds^^
>^^//note: use of hh, mm or ss format codes is only supported with ''tiddler'', ''today'' or ''filedate'' values//^^
* [linkformat] - specify an alternative date format so that the title of a 'dated tiddler' link can have a format that differs from the date's displayed format

In addition to the macro syntax, DatePlugin also provides a public javascript API so that other plugins that work with dates (such as calendar generators, etc.) can quickly incorporate date formatted links or popups into their output:

''{{{showDate(place, date, mode, format, linkformat, autostyle, weekend)}}}'' 

Note that in addition to the parameters provided by the macro interface, the javascript API also supports two optional true/false parameters:
* [autostyle] - when true, the font/background styles of formatted dates are automatically adjusted to show the date's status:  'today' is boxed, 'changes' are bold, 'reminders' are underlined, while weekends and holidays (as well as changes and reminders) can each have a different background color to make them more visibly distinct from each other.
* [weekend] - true indicates a weekend, false indicates a weekday.  When this parameter is omitted, the plugin uses internal defaults to automatically determine when a given date falls on a weekend.
The current date: <<date>>

import (or copy/paste) the following tiddlers into your document:
''DatePlugin'' (tagged with <<tag systemConfig>>)
!!!!!Revision History
''2006.02.14 [2.0.5]''
when readOnly is set (by TW core), omit "new reminders..." popup menu item and, if a "dated tiddler" does not already exist, display the date as simple text instead of a link.
''2006.02.05 [2.0.4]''
added var to variables that were unintentionally global.  Avoids FireFox crash bug when referencing global variables
''2006.01.18 [2.0.3]''
In 1.2.x the tiddler editor's text area control was given an element ID=("tiddlerBody"+title), so that it was easy to locate this field and programmatically modify its content.  With the addition of configuration templates in 2.x, the textarea no longer has an ID assigned.  To find this control we now look through all the child nodes of the tiddler editor to locate a "textarea" control where attribute("edit") equals "text", and then append the new reminder to the contents of that control.
''2006.01.11 [2.0.2]''
correct 'weekend' override detection logic in showDate()
''2006.01.10 [2.0.1]''
allow custom-defined weekend days (default defined in[] array)
added flag param to showDate() API to override internal weekend[] array
''2005.12.27 [2.0.0]''
Update for TW2.0
Added parameter handling for 'linkformat'
''2005.12.21 [1.2.2]''
FF's date.getYear() function returns 105 (for the current year, 2005).  When calculating a date value from Y M and D expressions, the plugin adds 1900 to the returned year value get the current year number.  But IE's date.getYear() already returns 2005.  As a result, plugin calculated date values on IE were incorrect (e.g., 3905 instead of 2005).  Adding +1900 is now conditional so the values will be correct on both browsers.
''2005.11.07 [1.2.1]''
added support for "tiddler" dynamic date parameter
''2005.11.06 [1.2.0]''
added support for "tiddler:title" dynamic date parameter
''2005.11.03 [1.1.2]''
when a reminder doesn't have a specified title parameter, use the title of the tiddler that contains the reminder as "fallback" text in the popup menu.  Based on a suggestion from BenjaminKudria.
''2005.11.03 [1.1.1]''
Temporarily bypass hasReminders() logic to avoid excessive overhead from generating the indexReminders() cache.  While reminders can still appear in the popup menu, they just won't be indicated by auto-styling the date number that is displayed.  This single change saves approx. 60% overhead (5 second delay reduced to under 2 seconds).
''2005.11.01 [1.1.0]''
corrected logic in hasModifieds() and hasReminders() so caching of indexed modifieds and reminders is done just once, as intended.  This should hopefully speed up calendar generators and other plugins that render multiple dates...

Coloured hats for thinking differently about problems:

The White Hat calls for information known or needed. 
The Red Hat signifies feelings, hunches and intuition. 
The Black Hat is judgment -- the devil's advocate or why something may not work. 
The Yellow Hat symbolizes brightness and optimism. 
The Green Hat focuses on creativity: the possibilities, alternatives and new ideas. 
The Blue Hat is used to manage the thinking process. 
To turn debugging on, at the start of a script add the keyword:


{{{Empty scope detected prior to this line. The code cannot be debugged by Script Debugger.}}}
If there is an empty scope i.e. brackets without any statements, the compilation will fail. This is a known issue which is not due to be fixed. Adding a single semicolon into an empty scope should allow compilation to succeed,
The delegation mind tag cloud: communication, control (letting go), capability, direction (down, up, sideways),  priority

!!dimensions of delegation
*Direction - how much someone needs to be shown
*Support - how much someone needs help

Before delegating any task, you must understand the capabilities of the person to whom you are delegating. Your role in the delegation process and even the decision to delegate or not will then vary accordingly to the amount of direction and support needed to pass on the task.

The table below shows four quadrants of delegation. For each type of task a person will start at quadrant 1, needing so much direction that support is not needed, and over time hopefully end up at quadrant 4, needing neither much direction or much support.

|!Support (S)|3) low D high S|2) high D, high S|
|~|4) low D, low S|1) high D, low S|
|!Direction (D)|>|>|

1) Direction
2) Coaching
3) Supporting
4) Delegation

*point of reflection - think about your own skill set with respect to the four stages of delegation

!!the most important skill in delegation is...
Asking open ended questions!

Buy the juxtaposition of DynamicLauncher into a java application's start command, dynamic instrumentation ([[AOP]]) can be added to modify an application's behavior at run time . 
!Event Dispatch Thread
[[SWING]] GUI components are not thread safe, so their use must be done on a single thread (EDT) to avoid [[deadlock]]. The EDT executes events in order, including repaints.

A thread can be tested to see if it is the EDT.

invokeLater is ideally used by other threads that wish to make calls to [[SWING]] components.
invokeLaterAndWait cannot be called on the EDT, and is typically used to obtain the state of SWING components form another tread.

[[javax.swing.Timer]] class is for SWING actions that are to be deferred or done regally.
[[javax.swing.SwingWorker]] (JDK 1.6) is a pattern for offloading time consuming tasks from the EDT. Override {{{finished}}} to make the GUI updates upon completion.
!Enterprise Java Bean

EJB is a server-side component that encapsulates the business logic of an application. 

[[EJB]]s are of only any value inside a EJB server, unlike [[POJO]]s beans which define naming standards for getters and setters and are used in all manor of component architectures. 

[[EJB]]s come in three variety; [[Session Bean]]s, Message Driven Beans [[MDB]]s, and [[Entity Bean]]s (now replaced by the Java Persistence API [[JPA]] in EJB 3.00)..	 

To build a bean:
1) Code bean class - with all business knowledge.
2) Code 2 interfaces - "home" and "component"
3) Create an XML deployment descriptor - named ejb-jar.xml
4) put bean, interfaces, and descriptor into an ejb-jar
5) Deploy bean into the server
!Element Language

eg. {{{${bean.attribute.attribute} }}}

is equivalent to the Java code  {{{bean().attribute().attribute();}}}

where the object {{{bean}}} has the member function {{{getAttribute()}}} defined where the returned object also has a member function {{{getAttribute()}}}

In short the use of ''EL'' eliminates the tedious use of ''get'' and ''set'' to access attributes that confirm to the JavaBean specification.

[[]] course requirements
*Beginning a Project
*Requirement Fundamentals
*Elicitation of Requirements
*Analysis & Negotiation
*Requirement Validation
*Requirement Management
*Bridging the gap to design

!Beginning a Project
Before a project is began in earnest the business needs must be found, identified, and captured, in order to satisfy and engender support from senior management.

From [[BABOK]]:
1. Define business need
2. Determine gap in capabilities to meet Business need
3. Determine a recomme3nded solution approach
4. Define solution scope
5. Develop the Business case
!Requirement Fundamentals
What is a requirement? 
There are many definition, my attempt is "A statement that communicates a need to be satisfied by a system or process".

Characteristics of good requirements (3 C's):
* Complete, Concise, & Correct.
* also Feasible, Necessary, Prioritized, Unambiguous, Verifiable, and Traceable.

Types of requirements:
*[[Functional Requirements (FR)|FR]]
*[[Non-Functional Requirements (NFR)|NFR]]

Levels of requirements:
i) Business
ii) User
ii) System
!Elicitation of Requirements
Extracting requirements from users and the business need not be like a visit to the dentists for a tooth extraction. Constantly thinking from their point of view and perspective can work wonders. Running workshops can be fun too (run a session with [[De Bono's Coloured Thinking Hats]]).

Stepping off on the right foot, by identifying and highlighting the project's vision will:
i) Earn credibility
ii) Garner support
iii) Ensure visibility

Techniques for requirement elicitation include:
Interviews, brainstorming, workshops, reading extant documentation, reverse engineering, surveys/questionnaires, [[User Stories]], observation/videoing/recording.

!Analysis & Negotiation
The breaking down into elementary parts, grouped together with meaning is the goal of analysis. It is the WHO does WHAT, the WHY, WHEN, HOW, and WHERE. And also the HOW WELL.

How to do it?
*classifying requirement types
*group by functional features
*partition into domains and subdomains
*scope work in and out.

Diagrams can help:
Scope view: Context diagrams, in/out matrix
Behavioural View: Business process, Use Cases, Sequence diagrams, interaction diagrams, state transition diagrams
Rules View: [[Data Dictionary]], Decision Tree, Decision Matrix

Conflict is inevitable. Mitigating conflict begins by identifying both our own and their way of dealing with it, which might be:
|competition|a battle to be won or lost|
|collaboration|a joint problem to be solved|
|compromise|someone has to give up something|
|avoidance|hope the conflict will go away|
|accommodation|meeting others needs before own|
!Requirement Validation
Requirements have a lift cycle of their own. Once they are written and base-lined, requirements will need to be Validated and Verified (V&V) 
Validation and Verification:
*validation - are we doing the right thing
*verification - is what we are doing right.
|requirement walkthroughs|formal inspection|
|simulation|test suite|
|prototype|code inspections|
|scenario walkthroughs|design inspection|
|process analysis|system testing|
|User Acceptance Testing (UAT)|unit tests|
!Requirement Management
Prioritizing, managing change, and providing traceability are some of the challenges to overcome with requirement management. For small projects these challenges can be managed with spread sheets and word documents, but for larger project software tools are invaluable.

* MoSCoW ( Must, Should, Could, Won't)
* Must, Need, Want, Urge
* Low, Medium, High
* Poker
There is both backwards and forwards traceability. The former going from requirements into design, and the later from requirements back to the source e.g. workshop, user, document, etc.
!Bridging the gap to design
Design is not reducible to a step of methods, which is probably why it can be so hard to move from requirements to design. It is the What v the How. Surprisingly good design can come from bad,little, or poor requirement! However having good requirements increases the likely hood that a design good or bad will hit its target. Design is best done with fewer people, one or two inspirational controlling people on the same wavelength will generate the best results.

Brainingstorming, [[De Bono's Coloured Thinking Hats]], [[Mindmaps|FreeMind]], Blue Sky Thinking can accelerate the search of design solutions.

Questions unlock closed doors and make for [[Quality Conversations]], so don't be afraid to ask them. More often than not we simply can not think of a appropriate question to ask. Here are a few to keep in mind:

!Open: Reality Check/Self-Awareness 

*Describe how you see things now?
*What's happening at the moment?
*How do you think others see the situation?
*Are there other ways of looking at this?
*What's working and what isn't?

!Follow up or precise

*Could you go into that in more detail?
*What exactly do you mean by....?
*Is that true of all projects that we're both involved with?
*Exactly how many times has this happened?


*What do you think would have happened if you/we had managed the project differently?
*What might you think if I worked part-time, not full-time?


*Is what you're saying that...?
*So, what you're thinking is that...?


*How would you rate your/my performance as an analyst?
*What's your immediate priority for me as my manager?
*What's our priority over the next month?


*What alternatives are there?
*Tell me what possibilities for action you see?
*Would you like suggestions from me?

!Core Objectives

*If you could get one thing out of this conversation what would this be?
*What is the one thing you really want to change about the way we work together?
*What would be the best outcome for you from this conversation?


*What is your thinking about the future of our team?
*What do you think about how our team meetings run?


*What is the best end result for you?
*What are you trying to achieve?


*What's our/your way forward for implementing the new system?
*What's our/your plan for moving forward?


*Can I say something proactive?
*Can I ask a naive question?
*Can I put another point of view?
*Can I put forward a diametrically opposite view?
*Can I put some black hat thinking here.


*Can we have an off-line conversation?
*Can we go 'unofficial'?
Many, many stories can be analysed into the following elements: set-up, launch, story, climax, and resolution

The initial equilibrium, where the potential is established for the ensuing story.
An unbalancing force now jars the world of the set-up into action.
Forces conflicting with each other in a rising, falling-domino series of events and actions, revolving around the axis of the narrative question.
The final conflict of the remaining forces where they either get what they want or are forced to stop trying - with an answer the narrative question. 
A new balanced state in which the remaining forces from the original set-up show changes they’ve undergone as a result of the story and climax

Engines per form computations, also known as Compute Nodes in a grid.

Usually there is one engine per core, running on a machine, controlled by a single [[Engine Daemon]] instance.
On startup an engine daemon logs into its [[Director]] and is routed to register with a [[Broker]]. It also starts up an keeps alive [[Engine Instances]], usually one per CPU core present on a machine.
The engine daemon monitors its host and kills/restarts [[Engine Instance]]s.
!Portfolio returns

The calculations for portfolio returns can be grouped into three:

* by Money
* by Time
* a hybrid 

When calculating a return of a portfolio of a period of time, the timing of the cash flows in and out of the portfolio have an additional complications to the calculation. Compounding these complexity are the differences that the choices in accounting methods makes. For instance funds can be considered available at start of day, end of day, mid day, or actual time (which is rare).

Other options are start of day for inflows and end of day for outflows.

!Comparing returns
After calculating a portfolio's return is a natural urge to wish to compare it. Hence the choosing of a benchmark to compare with. A number of delicate factors come into a benchmark selection:
*  Relevance 
*  Tradeability
*  Liquidity

The above factors are a natural concomitant from an index's Weight, spread, concentration, turnover, and  construction.

In reality Benchmarks are chosen before a portfolio is trades, as  portfolio managers will want this, are able to trade tio the benchmark if they wish.

!Arithmetic and Geometric Mean
* Arithmetic mean or 'average' is the sum of a collection, divided by the number of elements in the collection.
* Geometric mean indicates the central tendency or typical value, 'n' numbers are multiplied together and then nth root is taken.

A geometric mean will less than an arithmetic mean unless all members in a collection are equal, but its most important advantage is that it can be used to meaningfully compare two or more calculated means from collections that have different ranges. 


Brison Model - breaks portfolio returns into:

* Allocation 'A'  - profit due to choice of market sectors
* Selection 'S' - profit due to choice of individual stocks
* Interaction 'I'

PR - BR = A + S + I

Interaction, is not an explainable component to clients, hence it is preferable to choose a modified Brison Model that combines interaction into the Allocation and Selection components.

Portfolio Return (PR)
Benchmark Return (BR)
"Total excess return" - the difference in return between a managed portfolio and a benchmark.

A Findur Event Criteria is, essentially, a querry to determine when to post or unpost values for the [[Account Manager]].

Tran Status = Validated
Trade Date = [[expdate]]

Event citeria can select on both trade attributes and events. Further to this and uniquely, a selection may be made from a 'Misc Events Criteria' pannel which MUST be placed on the last page of a query.
Findur "Event Explode", aka. "Full Event Explode", is the name given to the [[Account Manager]] process that extracts values from the [[EOD]] Simulation Results, and posts account ledger entries for the deals identified by the [[Event Criteria]]. Any previous postings for that day are eliminated first.

In contrast {{{Partial Explode}}} does not eliminate existing postings. It is often used to repost deals.

Confusingly, {{{Test Explode}}} runs [[Event Explode]] on a single [[Deal]], and because it true to a "Full Event Explode" and clears all existing account entries from the [[expdate]] this function is usually disabled.

N.B. Event Explode can only run for days which [[EOD]] results are saved.

''U''nit testing

Where functions become objects and can be passed around, as in C++ and the [[STL]] or [[F#]]
As in annotations
!Unit Testing
Testing is easy with stateless functions, as is concurrency, and lazy evaluation
Code that can look at itself.
However many times you ask a question, you expect the same result.
e.g. what is your name?
An idempotent button is one that does it job once, even if you press it multiple times before the job in hand is completed. e.g. a Pedestrian Crossing stop request, a call lift button.

!Functional Requirement 

What a system does.

see [[NFR]] as well.

FR.01 At the start of a transaction, the system shall request entry of a customer card. If the card is valid, the system shall request the entry of the customer's PIN
!Foreign Exchange

*Proprietary Trading
a JVM error when the return to a function is missing. Normally the compile catches this but with [[AOP]] and [[Javassist]] it is possible to modify code in such away as to miss the return!

Findur's EOD is configurable to suit any organisations individual business requirements, so it cannot be exactly stated what will be in it, but in general terms; the EOD is a process that occurs on a daily (working day) basis. The process runs many scripts which start with ensuring that all prerequisite information is in the database, and reasonable checks are performed prior to the maturing of trades, the production of routine reports, the calculation of EOD position, the posting of accounting results, and ultimately the rolling of the business date. 

N.B. It is a good idea to make a database backup just prior to running EOD.

The [[Services Manager]] is where the EOD workflow is scheduled, sequenced, edited, and manually run.
Although Findur AVS GUIs can be converted to JVS and work, there is a bug in V9 and V10 that OpenLink are not going to fix, which is that the the Callback type returned by the script is always SCRIPT_PANEL_INIT.

Hence I recommend that AVS GUIs remain in AVS, and new GUIs tobe developed using OpenComponents

The flyweight pattern aims to replace large numbers of similar or equal instances with a fewer number of object, thus saving memory and increasing performance.

A good example of the flyweight pattern is Java's String class which interns strings so that different instances throughout a program can share the same immutable representation.

Given the flyweight pattern is responsible for the creation of object, this fact easily identified it as a member of the creation patterns group.

!Revision history
* v1.0.8 (2007-04-12)
** Adapted to latest TiddlyWiki 2.2 Beta importTiddlyWiki API (introduced with changeset 2004). TiddlyWiki 2.2 Beta builds prior to changeset 2004 are no longer supported (but TiddlyWiki 2.1 and earlier, of cause)
* v1.0.7 (2007-03-28)
** Also support "pre" formatted TiddlyWikis (introduced with TW 2.2) (when using "in" clause to work on external tiddlers)
* v1.0.6 (2006-09-16)
** Context provides "viewerTiddler", i.e. the tiddler used to view the macro. Most times this is equal to the "inTiddler", but when using the "tiddler" macro both may be different.
** Support "begin", "end" and "none" expressions in "write" action
* v1.0.5 (2006-02-05)
** Pass tiddler containing the macro with wikify, context object also holds reference to tiddler containing the macro ("inTiddler"). Thanks to SimonBaird.
** Support Firefox
** Internal
*** Make "JSLint" conform
*** "Only install once"
* v1.0.4 (2006-01-06)
** Support TiddlyWiki 2.0
* v1.0.3 (2005-12-22)
** Features: 
*** Write output to a file supports multi-byte environments (Thanks to Bram Chen) 
*** Provide API to access the forEachTiddler functionality directly through JavaScript (see getTiddlers and performMacro)
** Enhancements:
*** Improved error messages on InternetExplorer.
* v1.0.2 (2005-12-10)
** Features: 
*** context object also holds reference to store (TiddlyWiki)
** Fixed Bugs: 
*** ForEachTiddler 1.0.1 has broken support on win32 Opera 8.51 (Thanks to BrunoSabin for reporting)
* v1.0.1 (2005-12-08)
** Features: 
*** Access tiddlers stored in separated TiddlyWikis through the "in" option. I.e. you are no longer limited to only work on the "current TiddlyWiki".
*** Write output to an external file using the "toFile" option of the "write" action. With this option you may write your customized tiddler exports.
*** Use the "script" section to define "helper" JavaScript functions etc. to be used in the various JavaScript expressions (whereClause, sortClause, action arguments,...).
*** Access and store context information for the current forEachTiddler invocation (through the build-in "context" object) .
*** Improved script evaluation (for where/sort clause and write scripts).
* v1.0.0 (2005-11-20)

TiddlyWiki uses Wiki style markup, a way of lightly "tagging" plain text so it can be transformed into HTML. Edit this Tiddler to see samples.

! Header Samples
!Header 1
!!Header 2
!!!Header 3
!!!!Header 4
!!!!!Header 5

! Unordered Lists:
* Lists are where it's at
* Just use an asterisk and you're set
** To nest lists just add more asterisks...
*** this
* The circle makes a great bullet because once you've printed a list you can mark off completed items
* You can also nest mixed list types
## Like this

! Ordered Lists
# Ordered lists are pretty neat too
# If you're handy with HTML and CSS you could customize the [[numbering scheme|]]
## To nest, just add more octothorpes (pound signs)...
### Like this
* You can also
** Mix list types
*** like this
# Pretty neat don't you think?

! Tiddler links
To create a Tiddler link, just use mixed-case WikiWord, or use [[brackets]] for NonWikiWordLinks. This is how the GTD style [[@Action]] lists are created. 

Note that existing Tiddlers are in bold and empty Tiddlers are in italics. See CreatingTiddlers for details.

! External Links
You can link to [[external sites|]] with brackets. You can also LinkToFolders on your machine or network shares.

! Images
Edit this tiddler to see how it's done.

|~| right|
|colored| center |

For a complex table example, see PeriodicTable.

! Horizontal Rules
You can divide a tiddler into
sections by typing four dashes on a line by themselves.

! Blockquotes
This is how you do an extended, wrapped blockquote so you don't have to put angle quotes on every line.

Looking for the macroeconomic picture, data and trends behind an instruments price as an indication of the future direction of price.

e.g. A war in oil producing nation will drive oil prices up.

Because of the in depth sedulous research necessary for fundamental analysis, it can be only carried out over a relatively small number of instruments at a time, in contrast to the easy of applying [[Technical Analysis]] over many.

I made value from this course just by making the booking, as from that point on I re-remember, and re-applied with renewed vigour all the tools that Robin had explained to me 6 months ago,  in her enlightening one day [[Time Management Seminar]].

The course started at 7:00am. This some how seemed perfect for a time management course, as just by starting along with the dawn chorus. one felt that one was making good use of ones time.

Robin connected with me right at the start when she said that she liked to follow a philosophy of "making the complex simple", a statement that I resonate with very much as I have said that my self countlessly over the years with regards to Software Engineering, but never heard anyone else use the phrase. She further backs up here philosophy of making time management simple, by laying out her simple Tips and Techniques that form the good habits of staying on top of our head long rush through life.

It was good for me to go over the [[Tool Bar of Time]] again and the [[Weekly Planing Sheet]], as I had only just started to use some of the power with in them. Further it was motivating for me to being around other people with a desire to over come their time challenges. 

The [[NLP]] terms "In-Time" and "Through-Time" came up with reference to my personal question about time awareness. The terms represents different experiences of time that individuals have. Those who experience "In-time" could benefit from:
i) don't do that one last thing (that makes them late)
ii) be prepared early
iii) start with the end in mind.  

Where ever we start with time management, from chaotic to an organised getting things done achiever, Robin's has techniques, experiences, and funny anecdotes that can help us make a step up in our time-management abilities.

Not a very informative acronym. ITIL is a collection of good practices for IT service provision developed by HM government and put into the public domain.

The life cycle starts with: [[Service Strategy]], then if the project goes ahead, philosophy of [[Continuous Service Improvement]] is practiced whilst cycling around the stages of; [[Service Design]], [[Service Transition]], and [[Service Operation]].

Each step in the life cycle has a plethora of identified management processes, all of which are very well an appropriately identified, and can be explored in great detail depending upon needs and requirements.

Authoritarian philosophy to [[Change Management]] i.e. "Zero tolerance for unauthorised change". Which whilst bringing many benefits could lead to a change in company culture that might be equally as intolerant to customers as employees when unexpected problems that need immediate reaction occur.

Priorities are set by an unyielding drive for "business value", which at first is undoubtedly is going to lead to significant improvements, however, I suspect in the long term would lead to a "technical debt" within an organisation where changes that seemingly have no business value but experts or domain specialist understand are in the best interest if done, will be over looked to the detriment of overall company’s prosperity.

If you enter {ts} in your tiddler content (without the spaces) it will be replaced with a timestamp when you save the tiddler. Full list of formats:
* {ts} or {t} -> timestamp
* {ds} or {d} -> datestamp
* !ts or !t at start of line -> !!timestamp
* !ds or !d at start of line -> !!datestamp
(I added the extra ! since that's how I like it. Remove it from translations below if required)
* Change the timeFormat and dateFormat below to suit your preference.

The most important tip for investing is: "There is a difference between intrinsic value and market price".
The second is: "buy low and sell high"

Buy a business not a stock, otherwise its just gambling (which your welcome to do of course).
By "buying a business" you should look for one that is making money (not losing it).

Return of equity must be higher than a risk free return.

How do you know you're buying below equity value? Just make sure the company's share price is less than the per share equity value of the company.

The two types of objects are universally found in all programming languages, hence JSON is an ideal way to pass information across the language barriers as implementations of JSON are easy and already available in all but the most esoteric language.

Each object can be saved as and transmitted as a string.

!public String toString ()

Encodes this array as a compact JSON string, such as:

OpenJVS API is a fassade to an ancient 'C' interface, which does not make use of exceptions, hence functions
return multifarious error codes instead, and the {{{OException}}} reserved to fundamental infrastructure failures. 
The addition of a light weight assertion package that can succinctly check for errors and raise exceptions in their place is therefore a must.

Their is still much debate over Assertions and Java's native assertion mechanisms. What solution is reach with dealing with OpenJVS errors will depend much upon your position in this debate. My years of empirical experience leads me to like always on early detection of errors, combined with a light weight approach of achieving this. Defensive programming needs to be target, to external interactions, as to liberal use leads to complicating code without benefits.

Often developers are like forensic detectives pouring over a few clues left in a production log file, with little hope of a re-enactment of the scene of the crime to take place. The few log file clues can therefore be crucial to the successful resolution of a case, which is why the addition of all on assertions is a great boon.

OpenJvs example:
	Table tError = Table.tableNew();
	Assert.found(tError.addCol("error_text", COL_TYPE_ENUM.COL_STRING));
	tError.setString("error_text", 1, sErrorMsg);

example {{{Assert.found}}} implementation:
public class Assert
	public static void found(int iExpectedToBeFound, String sErrMsg) throws AssertionError
		if (iExpectedToBeFound != Util.NOT_FOUND)
			assertError("iExpectedToBeFound "+iExpectedToBeFound+" != 1 "+sErrMsg);

The method {{{assertError}}} logs the error message to a file, along with a simplified call stack obtained using {{{Thread.currentThread().getStackTrace();}}}

Many of the constants such as those in {{{RBUTIL Constants}}} are looked up using {{{REF_GetValue}}} and {{{REF_GetName}}}, both of these may throw the exception {{{OException}}}, which makes the functions unsuitable for use during class elaboration aka construction of static variables.

e.g. Unusable due to exception
To maintain the same constant initialization functionality found in legacy AVS scripts(without seeking other alternatives) a wrapper to both  {{{REF_GetValue}}} and {{{REF_GetName}}} that don’t throw exceptions will simply solve the compilation problem.
public class RefUtil {
	public static int getValue(SHM_USR_TABLES_ENUM table_id, String name) 
		try {
			return Ref.getValue(table_id,name);
		} catch (OException e) {
			Log.error("OException, table_id=""name = "+name);
			return Avs.FALSE;
Constants can then be initialized by simply substituting the package name {{{Ref}}} for {{{RefUtil}}}.

e.g. Intialise with non exception raising façade method. 

Some AVS include files could be filled with constant definitions such as:
 String COST_OF_CARRY_CFLOW   = REF_GetValue(CFLOW_TYPE_TABLE, "Cost of Carry");

The equivalent in JVS is:
 final String COST_OF_CARRY_CFLOW  = Ref.getValue(SHM_USR_TABLES_ENUM..CFLOW_TYPE_TABLE, "Cost of Carry");

But Ref.getValue throws OException, which means that the initialisation will have to be done during class elaboration instead.

public class Constants
   final String COST_OF_CARRY_CFLOW;


When using JVS enumerations v91r2:
* use {{{toInt()}}} or {{{fromInt()}}} and not the deprecated {{{toJvs()}}} or {{{fromJvs()}}} methods.
Error handling in JVS can be seen as a problem, because it is a multifaceted issue with a number of distinct problem areas; function error codes, OExceptions, the return of null pointers. Further, the interaction of AVS/JVS error handling philosophy and that of Java’s is one that is not dissimilar to mixing oil with water, which is a legacy issue that we have no choice but to deal with as best we can.

Java has a clear programming philosophy for dealing with malfunctioning code by the use of exceptions which are split into two groups Errors and Exceptions. The JVS interface does not follow this split or the overall philosophy used by Java, hence the challenge.

Ideally the mapping between JVS’s mythology Java’s would have had OException defined as an unchecked exception, aka an Error, as almost all ways it is something that business logic need not deal with.

Expanding the three parts to the general elicits:

I.	Return codes
*	Actually checking them (applies to AVS as well as JVS)
*	Conversion of return codes into exceptions

II.	OException
*	Ensuring that all memory for tables which have been created are freed. [[JVS Idiom: Table Destroy]]

III.	The return of nulls 
*	Avoiding a subsequent NULL_POINTER_EXCEPTION when a null object is thrown

Each of the above entails an idiom or two to smooth code conversion from AVS to JVS augmented with the development of a small framework of library calls.

When dealing with strings, developers need to remember that a null string object cannot be compared. E.g.
Boolean isUserChris(Table tArg)
   String sUser = Table.getString(tArg,”name”,1);

   return user.equals(“Chris”); // will throw null pointer exception if user name was not found in argt


e.g. Check for null
   return user != null && user.equals("Chris");

Alternatively use null string friendly equals instead aka. com.rbnz.util.StrUtil.equal (sUser,”Chris”) or the Jakarta Commons string util classes.

Just because AVS has moved to Java does not mean that a former AVS developer can put his feet up and forget all about memory management, as Tables still have to be destroyed manually, otherwise the underlying code will leak memory.

There are two dangers, firstly is to guarantee that the table is destroyed even if there is an error. And secondly, avoiding {{{NullPointerException}}}.

Java's {{{try catch finally}}} blocks can elegantly handle the guaranteeing table destruction in the case an exception is thrown, and using the static {{{TABLE_Destroy}}} method instead of the member method {{{destroy}}} will guard (we hope) against {{{NullPointerException}}}s 

try finally and static destroy e.g. 
Table tTable = Table.tableNew("My Table");
   tTable.addCol("name", COL_TYPE_ENUM.COL_STRING );
Java's {{{true}}} and {{{false}}} are genuine Boolean values where as AVS's are the Integers 1 for {{{TRUE}}} and 0 for {{{FALSE}}}. This difference creates pain in JVS at the interface between JAVA code and AVS. The first step to ameliorate this problem is define some constants for TRUE and FALSE - I have no idea why Findur did not do this in Version 9 (they might do later)

public class Avs
      final int TRUE = 1;
      final int FALSE = 0;

The second and ongoing step is to create wrapper functions for the commonly used AVS functions that return 1 and 0.

e.g. mirror {{{class Transaction}}} isNull function with ...
public class TranUtil
	public static boolean isNull(Transaction tran) throws OException
		return Transaction.isNull(tran) == Avs.TRUE ? true : false;

	public static boolean isNotNull(Transaction tran) throws OException
		return Transaction.isNull(tran) == Avs.FALSE ? true : false;
Unlike AVS the {{{argt}}} table is not global, instead it is part of the context passed in. Good or bad, a solution different to that used by AVS will have to be found when converting AVS library functions that depended upon this.


*Pass the context or {{{argt}}} table in arguments
*Explicitly store the {{{argt}}} table into a global.

!Malcolm Lett on Velai Threads 

Using parallel threads should be as easy as this:

{{{ Files files = searchUserDir(pattern);}}}

However using Java's {{{Thread}}} class and {{{concurrent}}} package leave the developer with a tedious amount of boiler plate code to write, especially as a long running process to be well behaved will wish to:

*be tidily stopped
*report progress
*offer the ability to be paused.

[[Velai Threads]] offers all the above as an extension of the concurrent package.

Using Javassist it is possible to alter, modify, & change java classes for which there is either no source code available or other reasons for not being able to change a class, such as being a JVM class. This is achieved by the replacement of the standard class loader with Javassis's own, that dynamically modifies the byte code of classes as they are loaded.

[[AOP]] with Javassist enables one to:
* insert code before a method
* insert code after a method
* add a field
* modify a calls within methods.

!Special characters

[[Client]]s connect to a manager through a service to have their jobs distributed by [[Broker]]s to [[Engine]]s which carry out the computations.

Communication of job parameters and results to Engines is either funnelled through the [[Broker]]s with [[DDT]] ''off'' or more efficiently carried out directly [[Client]] to [[Engine]] with [[DDT]] ''on''.
What is a manager? For those that are not managers the difference between a worker and a manager can seem nebulous, however the difference can be boiled into four simple functions:

Functions of management:
* planning
* leading
* organizing
* control

It should have been relatively easy to marshal and unmarshal SOAP responses to file and from file, but both the error messages and solutions proved to be obtuse.

!To Marshal a SOAP response.
File output = new File("response.xml");
JAXBContext context = JAXBContext.newInstance(RetrieveGetDataResponse.class);

Marshaller marshaler = context.createMarshaller();
marshaler.setProperty(Marshaller.JAXB_FORMATTED_OUTPUT, Boolean.TRUE); // Pretty print xml in marshaling
JAXBElement<RetrieveGetDataResponse> element =    


NOTE if you try {{{ marshaler.marshal(response,output); }}} directly instead of marshal the JAXBElement created by the object factory you will be greeted with the error message ''missing an @XmlRootElement'':
[com.sun.istack.SAXException2: unable to marshal type "" as an element because it is missing an @XmlRootElement annotation]
	at com.sun.xml.bind.v2.runtime.MarshallerImpl.write(
	at com.sun.xml.bind.v2.runtime.MarshallerImpl.marshal(
	at javax.xml.bind.helpers.AbstractMarshallerImpl.marshal(

e.g. output when marshaling successfully with a JAXBElement
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<retrieveGetDataResponse xmlns="">
   ..... lots of data .....

!To unmarshal a SOAP response

Like marshaling the trick to using JAXB with SOAP is to use the generated ObjectFactory to help you.
InputStream inputStream = new ByteArrayInputStream(sResponseXml.getBytes());
JAXBContext jc = JAXBContext.newInstance( );

Unmarshaller unmarshaller = jc.createUnmarshaller();
JAXBElement<RetrieveGetDataResponse> element = 
           unmarshaller.unmarshal(new StreamSource(inputStream), RetrieveGetDataResponse.class  );
RetrieveGetDataResponse response = element.getValue();     

NOTE if you try to unmarshal the response xml directly and a context from you desired class
JAXBContext jc = JAXBContext.newInstance( RetrieveGetDataResponse.class);
Unmarshaller u = jc.createUnmarshaller();

you get the obtuse error "''Expected elements are (none)''":
 unexpected element (uri:"", local:"retrieveGetDataResponse"). Expected elements are (none)

Maturing a trade changes its status from ''Validated'' to ''Matured'' and the ''Close'' event to ''Known''.

Maturing is importing because matured trades no longer appear in default queries, which improves performance especially in the EOD simulation results. If no maturing is done, the system can run out of memory (or time) because every trade has go through a costly recalulation during the EOD.

The standard script is: {{{}}}, which looks for "Close" event date <= current date.

''NestedSlidersPlugin for TiddlyWiki version 1.2.x and 2.0''
^^author: Eric Shulman
license: [[Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 License|]]^^

Quickly make any tiddler content into an expandable 'slider' panel, without needing to create a separate tiddler to contain the slider content. Optional syntax allows ''default to open'', ''custom button label/tooltip'' and ''automatic blockquote formatting.''

You can also 'nest' these sliders as deep as you like (see complex nesting example below), so that expandable 'tree-like' hierarchical displays can be created. This is most useful when converting existing in-line text content to create in-line annotations, footnotes, context-sensitive help, or other subordinate information displays.

For more details, please click on a section headline below:
Debugging messages for 'lazy sliders' deferred rendering:
<<option chkDebugLazySliderDefer>> show debugging alert when deferring slider rendering
<<option chkDebugLazySliderRender>> show debugging alert when deferred slider is actually rendered
//''note: Enabling these settings may produce unexpected results. Use at your own risk.''//
When installed, this plugin adds new wiki syntax for embedding 'slider' panels directly into tiddler content. Use {{{+++}}} and {{{===}}} to delimit the slider content. Additional optional syntax elements let you specify 'default to open', 'cookiename', 'heading level', 'custom label/tooltip', 'automatic blockquote' and 'deferred rendering'.
content goes here
* {{{+++}}} (or {{{++++}}}) and {{{===}}}^^
marks the start and end of the slider definition, respectively. When the extra {{{+}}} is used, the slider will be open when initially displayed.^^
* {{{(cookiename)}}}^^
save the slider opened/closed state, and restore this state whenever the slider is re-rendered.^^
* {{{!}}} through {{{!!!!!}}}^^
displays the slider label using a formatted headline (Hn) style instead of a button/link style^^
* {{{[label]}}} or {{{[label|tooltip]}}}^^
uses custom label/tooltip. (defaults are: ">/more..." and "</less...")^^
* {{{">"}}} //(without the quotes)//^^
automatically adds blockquote formatting to slider content^^
* {{{"..."}}} //(without the quotes)//^^
defers rendering of closed sliders until the first time they are opened. //Note: deferred rendering may produce unexpected results in some cases. Use with care.//^^

//Note: to make slider definitions easier to read and recognize when editing a tiddler, newlines immediately following the {{{+++}}} 'start slider' or preceding the {{{===}}} 'end slider' sequence are automatically supressed so that excess whitespace is eliminated from the output.//

''NestedSlidersPlugin'' (tagged with <<tag systemConfig>>)
+++!!!!![Revision History]>

++++[2006.01.03 - 1.6.2]
When using optional "!" heading style, instead of creating a clickable "Hn" element, create an "A" element inside the "Hn" element. (allows click-through in SlideShowPlugin, which captures nearly all click events, except for hyperlinks)

+++[2005.12.15 - 1.6.1]
added optional "..." syntax to invoke deferred ('lazy') rendering for initially hidden sliders
removed checkbox option for 'global' application of lazy sliders

+++[2005.11.25 - 1.6.0]
added optional handling for 'lazy sliders' (deferred rendering for initially hidden sliders)

+++[2005.11.21 - 1.5.1]
revised regular expressions: if present, a single newline //preceding// and/or //following// a slider definition will be suppressed so start/end syntax can be place on separate lines in the tiddler 'source' for improved readability. Similarly, any whitespace (newlines, tabs, spaces, etc.) trailing the 'start slider' syntax or preceding the 'end slider' syntax is also suppressed.

+++[2005.11.20 - 1.5.0]
 added (cookiename) syntax for optional tracking and restoring of slider open/close state

+++[2005.11.11 - 1.4.0]
 added !!!!! syntax to render slider label as a header (Hn) style instead of a button/link style

+++[2005.11.07 - 1.3.0]
 removed alternative syntax {{{(((}}} and {{{)))}}} (so they can be used by other
 formatting extensions) and simplified/improved regular expressions to trim multiple excess newlines

+++[2005.11.05 - 1.2.1]
 changed name to NestedSlidersPlugin
 more documentation

+++[2005.11.04 - 1.2.0]
 added alternative character-mode syntax {{{(((}}} and {{{)))}}}
 tweaked "eat newlines" logic for line-mode {{{+++}}} and {{{===}}} syntax

+++[2005.11.03 - 1.1.1]
 fixed toggling of default tooltips ("more..." and "less...") when a non-default button label is used
 code cleanup, added documentation

+++[2005.11.03 - 1.1.0]
 changed delimiter syntax from {{{(((}}} and {{{)))}}} to {{{+++}}} and {{{===}}}
 changed name to EasySlidersPlugin

MPTW is now using the new theme framework from TW 2.3. It's pretty new and not well documented so I will make some notes here for those who want to customise their MPTW. 

Take a look at the tiddlers tagged with <<tag systemTheme>>. The slices there specify the templates and stylesheets used by that theme. Notice also that you can use the new Tiddler##Section notation to use a section of a tiddler.

If you want to customise your templates make a new systemTheme copied from MptwTheme then modify that as required.

!OpTier Transaction Tracking Interface

OpTier's CoreFirst SDK is known as OTTI and can be used to develop custom Tier Extensions [[TE]] in C++ and Java.

!! Methods for instrumentation
Methods such as start tier, stop tier, call to next tier started, call to next tier finished are present in the thin API, to trace transactions through tiers.
Daily time planning is as easy as counting to five.

First thing in the morning create a list in your diary of the things that you need to do that day in no particular order. Then go through and number the first five highest priority things to do. __Next start item one__.

1..5 is simple, effective, and is FREE; although an executive of Bethlehem Steel(1857–2003) in America paid - after implementing this tip - $250,000 voluntarily as the worth to him for the difference it made to his corporation.

A tip to amplify the value of One to Five prioritising is; when an interruption inevitably arises, write that down too and only deal with it if it is actually of a higher importance than the task with which you were interrupted from doing.

OpenComponents is the object oriented interface to Findur. The staggeringly wide groups of function calls are gone, instead they have been replace by closely coupled cohesive objects. What is also replaced is the straight forward method invocation; as now before accessing almost every method call there is the need to be indirected through a factory or an object.

OpenJVS is the Java based replacement to Findur's AVS propitiatory scripting language.

Thoughts on the Wellington Java User Group (WJUG) lecture by Dr Alex Potanin 27th April 2011

Programmers often break either the ownership or immutability contracts that are only currently implicitly expressed in the interfaces of their programs.

The ownership of an object and the mutability of an object whilst being separate issues, are in fact intertwined. And when control over both of these issues are implemented together the resulting synergy is a powerful tool for us developers whom strive to encapsulate and enforce  the implied contracts of objects and Advance Data Types (ADT)s.

Who owns an object ? Java/C++ have {{{public,protected, and private}}} fields, but the fields themselves are references to objects and don't actually in force ownership. Further, the objects can be aliased; that is two or more variables can have a reference to the same object. This aliasing allows for the possibility that a private object remains referenced externally and can therefore still be modified causing unknown side effects.

The question of immutability is one of modification, i.e. can an object be modified or not ? If an object is mutable, then the answer is yes, otherwise the answer is no. Simple, but when the issue of ownership is added into the mix, a third state of read-only becomes essential for objects that are mutable by their owners, but read-only by other users.

Some languages have partially attempted to address immutability, such as with [[C/C++]] with its {{{const}}} keyword, and Java with its {{{final}}} keyword. However, none of them yet have come close to a full and complete out of the box solution for either mutability or ownership, let alone both.

!Ownership Immutability Generic Java [[OIGJ]]

Ownership Immutability Generic Java [[OIGJ]] is a Java solution, using type annotations to achieve compile time enforcement of ownership and immutability contracts. It was to be added into Java 7 before Sun Microsystems ceased and Oracle took over the stewardship of Java.  

As expected the [[OIGJ]] solution provides:
*Mutable object (readable and writeable by owner)
*Immutable object (read-only by owner)
*Read-only object (readable by others)

Further to create an immutable list of immutable objects; first a list has to be created and then immutable objects are added. To do this we soon realise that the list itself cannot be immutable then when it is created. To solve this catch-22 problem, a further state has been introduced:
*Raw-immutable object (writeable during construction, and then read-only thereafter)

To understand the additional raw-immutable condition; think of a succulent slab of stake that starts off raw, and then to which salt, garlic, and spices are rubbed in, before being sealed by cooking. Now compare it to the list at the start of construction which is raw and empty, now like adding the spices, objects are added to the list, until it is sealed at the end of construction.

!Four Bad Habits

1. Dying Metaphors

2. Verbal False Limbs

3. Pretentious Diction

4. Meaningless Word

!Orwell's Six Rules
1. Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.

2. Never use a long word where a short one will do.

3. If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.

4. Never use the passive where you can use the active.

5. Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.

6. Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous. 
!Get into the Flow
Presenting is all about a state of mind, getting into the state of mind where everything goes well  is possibly the most important lesson to takeaway.

For me my key word is "The Voice", and is short for generating my voice from the chest and to lose the tension that is given away with a higher pitched delivery.

Further to help with getting into the flow, forget about the 'me' and think of the 'you' i.e. the audience what do they wish to hear?

* Draw up the audience
* Lengthy eye contacts
* How not to look like a robot

!Taking and handling questions
* Where to look
* How much voice to give

* What is the most persuasive word?

The GTD Tiddly Wiki has been designed to print "HipsterPDA" 3x5 index cards. All you have to do is use your browser's "Print" button or shortcut key.

!Print Features:
* Print directly to 3x5 from your browser. There is no "printer friendly" link.
* Pagination: Each Tiddler (or GTD list) will print on it's own sheet. You could have all your lists open and print them all at once.
* If you know any CSS, you can completely customize the print output.
* List bullets are circles to help you mark off completed tasks in your HipsterPDA.


!How to customize print style, typeface, or font size:
* Edit the StyleSheet Tiddler (it helps to know a little CSS).

!KnownBugs with print:
* Firefox/Mac has no "page properties" interface for removing the page URL, page numbers, etc... from printed pages. This is pretty lame. Try entering about:config in Firefox's URL bar and look for "print" to configure it the hard way.
* WIN/IE 6 inserts one blank page because it does not recognize the :first-child CSS psuedo element.
* You'll probably need to tweak your browser print settings to remove the page URL, pagination, timestamp, and ensure that the output is sized and paged correctly.
* Your mileage may vary because of platform, font, browser, and printer differences. If you find something that's broken or needs help, visit the GTDTWForum.
The Prototype Pattern uses a prototypical object to copy in order to create a new object. These are properties indicative to the creation pattern nomenclature.

A "prototypical object" refers to any object that is used as a blank, a template, etc to be copied.

!Quality Conversations or rather Difficult ones
Conversations come in many different varieties and are started for many different purposes. Most of them are spontaneous, unplanned interactions with people around us. They may be a single comment, such as "hi", or a simple question such as "how are you?", and then develop and grow like a wild flower in a hedgerow with a life of its own, whilst others hit rough ground and dry up before the seed had time to germinate. Amongst those that seem to grow there are some that whilst looking realistic and even pleasant but are in fact like plastic flowers, fake, false, and even dishonest. In these conversations thoughts are often kept private and are not communicated, due to the difficult nature of the topic involved.

It is the difficult conversations, those that are best started with some planning and fore thought, that the Quality Conversations focuses upon by illustrating them and offering ideas, thoughts, and tools to help.

!Why are we not honest?
Fear is the biggest reason for not being honest, we are simply too afraid to speak the truth. There may be good reason for this, in the extreme our life may be on the line, our jobs, our honour, our reputation, our self esteem, etc. But most often it is courage that is lacking and also the way to go about expressing a difficult topic that is further muddled and stymied by emotions.

!Emotions getting in the way

1.Events and circumstances {{{--- triger --->}}}
2.Thoughts {{{--- create --->}}}
3.Reactions {{{---  lead to --->}}}

!Managing emotions, re-framing

Once emotions are in the way as a reaction from a particular way of thinking, no other thoughts can come in. It is at this point, if we can train ourselves to change or consider a different perspective, a different belief of a person or the possible outcome of a conversation, that we have a chance to obtain a different outcome, which might include speaking up about an issue that previously seemed too difficult to broach.

Try to re-frame a conversation from another perspective i.e. their side, or a third parties.

!Handling emotions

Self talk, practice or wishful thinking 
!Levels of conversations
Not all conversations are held at the same level, they range from the perfunctory "have a nice day" (no need to reply) to the heart to heart of lovers. Of course most the time conversations range in between.

Although conversations range from the light to the deep, they invariably start at the light and then move to the deep, and any attempt to short circuit this process will result in jar or shock to the conversations which will most likely bring around its early end.

i) The most neutral conversation piece to start with seems to be the weather, which can still be used even if you have no intention of stopping there. Clothing, and appearance is slightly deeper and only of any use if really meant, for their is nothing worse than perfunctory or insincere praise.

ii) Encouraging the disclosure of personal but non visible facts, is the next level. Offering your own details upfront can start the ball rolling, so long as you don't become self obsessed and move onto asking about the other parties non visible facts, such as marital status, children, brothers and sisters etc

iii) Moving in to likes and dislikes comes next, and these can be trivial like colours, or more revealing such as their favourite authors, and musicians.

iv) Extracting and exchanging ideas, views, opinions, and beliefs is very rewarding and the mark of a good discourse.

v) Moving into hopes, and desires represents one level on, and now a conversation is becoming intimate and one must of established mutual trust to enter into these realms.

vi) Identity, the core, the heart of a person. Although also the deepest level of conversation, reaching down here can be dangerous, and is not often the goal. Staying at the level of hopes and desires is deep enough for successful conversations within a work environment. 

Note. Just because you have had a deep level conversation once with someone, dose not mean that you can start off right were you left off the next time you see them. Although it will always be easier to re-engage in a deep conversation, the formality of alighting upon each of the high levels again cannot be overlooked or skipped.

!Ground Truths

Sometimes a topic of conversations will be discussed at the level of accepted truth, or official truth, rather than the ground truth, which is the real reality of a situation as opposed to a reality that is wished for or hoped for, or politically expedient.

It is not always easy to reach the profundity of ground truths, as no matter how trivial a subject, once one more person has failed to raise the ground truth, the strength of conviction need for an individual to then bring up the ground truth up increases.

Just take the subject of the [[9/11 Demolition]] for instance. Before being able to evaluate what really happened people need to be free to talk about the subject, i.e. ground truths. Because many people, including professionals with relevant expertise have avoided any discussion on the matter, having a ground truth conversation has become very difficult.

The classic story about the emperor whom has no clothes is a classic example of where a ground truth conversation did not take place.

Euphemisms, an in offensive expression used to hide an offensive one, are a classic way that ground truth conversations are also avoided.

!Going about Ground Truth conversations

*Get your story straight
*Give examples
*Tell your story
*Try to find some mutual understanding
*Outline any contributions that you have made
*State your wish to resolve the issue

!Getting your story straight
So often our own story is muddled and mixed up, as we have never refined it.

*What is your version of the truth and the other party's?
*What are your intentions and what are your assumptions about the intentions of the other party?
*What contributions did you make to the problem?
*What contribution did the other party make?
*What are your feelings?
*What might the other party be feeling?
*What personal identity issues are being questioned - yours and theirs?
*Deliberately change your thinking and see the situation in a different light.

Whose story are you gone to use, and from what perspective?
*A 3rd party
Think through the topic from each of these perspectives.

Asking genuine questions to tease out "their story" is a good way to go.
e.g. {{{Can you tell me your thinking on ...}}}
e.g. {{{I'm not sure that I've got a grip on this and I'd like to know how you see things.}}}

!Telling your story
Jumping straight in to telling your story is a feet first approach, which will be more effective if you orientate your listener first off and set the stage before starting by briefly introducing the topic of your conversation.

Taking on difficult challenging issues via assertive and ground breaking conversations is hard work, both mentally and emotionally. To buffer these effects, the greater our own personal resilience is the better we shall succeed.

Sleep. Get enough of it. The biggest single way to reduce your resilience is to be tired. Remember that and give sleep the appropriate priority when you need resilience the most.

Take stock of who you are, what your identity is, where you come from, and be proud of it. Don't let a guilt trip of any kind falsely undermine your character. Build your own character up, by strengthening some aspect of your self, and how you present your self to others.

Compare your self to your self and not others. This makes self improvement possible and prevents any disabling comparisons to others. By all means have heroes to aspire to, as aspiring lifts you up and does not involve comparison of any kind.

Don't pretend that your cup is half full, when you know that there is a whole at the bottom draining the cup of its contents. Go an plug the hole.

Whilst playing to your strengths, paying attention to your weaknesses may often reap great rewards, by replacing and area of discomfort with one of confidence.

!Remote Method Invocation [[java.rmi]] API

RMI is used so a client can execute a method on a server running on a physically different machine (port 1099).

As well as a Client and a Server application, two other parts are needed:
* a remote object interface
* a remote object implementation (of interface)

|-Djava.rmi.server.codebase=|location of classes. A path to a jar file or directory (''with trailing /'')|eg. http://zaphod/~ann/classes/|
|-Djava.rmi.server.hostname=|Address of server on which stubs for RMI objects, set if needed to be different to getLocalHost|eg.|
RMI tools: 
* [[rmic]] - Java RMI stub compiler, later versions generate these on the fly.
* [[rmiregistry]] - Java remote object registry
* [[rmid]] - Java RMI activation system daemon
Also need a http server for class files: try

Runtime information on the transport used by RMI:
String hostIp = TCPTransport.getClientHost();
Method getSocketMethod = sun.rmi.transport.tcp.TCPConnection.class.getMethod("getSocket", null);
((Socket)getSocketMethod.invoke(connection, null)).getInetAddress();


|{{{\d}}}|any digit char| 0-9|
|{{{\w}}}|any word char| not a space|
|{{{\s}}}|space| char |
|{{{\.}}}| the dot char|

|+| one or more (greedy) |+? non-greedy|
|.|one character|
|?|zero or one |
|*|zero or more (greedy)| *? non-greedy|

Get enough sleep. It cannot be stated how important this is to aid memory, recall and storage of new information.
Emotions effect recall, "test anxiety","on the tip of the tongue".

Relax. Move on and then come back, as the answer is likely to pop into the mind.
Increase the faith one has in ones own memory, trust it.
Paying attention is to focus, and dose not occur when multi-tasking.
Proof: States have laws against talking on a cell phone and driving.
Identify in new information parts that you already know & part that can be figured out.
Categorise information as an iterative process, progressively refining it. This is, more beneficial for adults than for children.
Proof: It is well known that it is easier to remember a list of related items, eg. chair, table, cupboard, tea cup. Than un-related items, e.g. jet, C++, cash, window. 
We learn best by associating the new with what we already know. Rote memory is worst, because of the lack of association.

Associations are most effective when they are visual images.
Proof: Neurophysiologically the brain devotes vastly more neurons to vision than hearing, language, etc.

Use diagrams, doodles, more than pure text. Images should be based on nouns, which are concrete and easy to image. Link images together to form stories.

Recall of memory is its strongest in the same location as it was created.
Proof: Suba divers remembered associated list better when learnt and recalled under-water, as opposed to being learnt under-water and recalled on land or visa versa.
Our internal scratch pad is limited to 7 +/- 2 items, hence (local) phone numbers are 7 digits. If items are changed in the mental scratch pad too quickly, then consolidation is impaired. 
Learning must be rehearsed to aid consolidation. 
Proof: Motor neural feats, such as piano, typing, and dancing are 
perfected by numerous repetitions. 
Last 5-10 minutes of a lesson should be used to consolidate the mental scratch pad, before the scratch pad is filled by new material. Cumulative rehearsal needs to be explicitly taught and practised by poor learners.
Rehearsal needs to go on every day, even if for a few minutes to achieve effective consolidation. Good teaching reduces the amount of rehearsal needed.

Bad rehearsal is cramming for exams, as this only uses short term memory. Test should be based on the philosophical precept that learning should be permanent. 

Multiple choice test primarily test recognition and not recall which is the ability to generate the right answer from scratch.
!The Ten Minute Rule
Take new material in for 10 minutes, then rehears the new material for 10 minutes. Successively link new material towards a greater mastery of a large set of competencies. 
Logic: Reduces mental scratch pad interference, optimises chunking, association, and attentiveness.
* Don't remember word for word, and try not to rely on specific words, as you might not find them under pressure.
* Draw a strip cartoon that represents your speech.

    * Two top-level public classes cannot be in the same source file.
    * main() cannot call an instance (non-static) method.
    * Methods can have the same name as the constructor(s).
    * Watch for thread initiation with classes that don't have a run() method.
    * Local classes cannot access non-final variables.
    * Case statements must have values within permissible range.
    * ''Watch for Math class being an option for immutable classes.''
    * instanceOf is not the same as instanceof.
    * Constructors can be private.
    * Assignment statements can be mistaken for a comparison; e.g., if(a=true)...
    * Watch for System.exit() in try-catch-finally blocks.
    * Watch for uninitialized variable references with no path of proper initialization.
    * Order of try-catch-finally blocks matters.
    * main() can be declared final.
    * ''-0.0 == 0.0 is true.''
    * A class without abstract methods can still be declared abstract.
    * ''RandomAccessFile descends from Object and implements DataInput and DataOutput.''
    * ''Map does not implement Collection.''
    * ''Dictionary is a class, not an interface.''
    * ''Collection (singular) is an Interface, but Collections (plural) is a helper class.''
    * Class declarations can come in any order (e.g., derived first, base next, etc.).
    * Forward references to variables gives a compiler error.
    * Multi-dimensional arrays can be "sparse" -- i.e., if you imagine the array as a matrix, every row need not have the same number of columns.
    * Arrays, whether local or class-level, are always initialized
    * Strings are initialized to null, not empty string.
    * An empty string is not the same as a null reference.
    * ''A declaration cannot be labeled.''
    * ''continue must be in a loop (e.g., for, do, while). It cannot appear in case constructs, or labeled if statements.''
    * Primitive array types can never be assigned to each other, even though the primitives themselves can be assigned. For example, ArrayofLongPrimitives = ArrayofIntegerPrimitives gives compiler error even though longvar = intvar is perfectly valid.
    * A constructor can throw any exception (not limited by parent).
    * Initializer blocks are executed in the order of declaration.
    * Instance initializers are executed only if an object is constructed.
    * ''All comparisons involving NaN and a non-NaN always result in false.''
    * Default type of a numeric literal with a decimal point is double.
    * ''int and long operations / and % can throw an ArithmeticException, while float and double / and % never will (even in case of division by zero).''
    * == gives compiler error if the operands are cast-incompatible.
    * {{{(Double.NaN == Double.NaN)}}} is unexpectantly false, where as {{{(Double.MAX_VALUE == Double.MAX_VALUE)}}} is true
    * You can never cast objects of sibling classes (sharing the same parent).
    * ''equals() returns false if the object types are different. It does not raise a compiler error.''
    * No inner class can have a static member. ''but can have final static member''
    * File class has no methods to deal with the contents of the file.
    * ''InputStream and OutputStream are abstract classes, while DataInput and DataOutput are interfaces.''
Compiler, will not compile unreachable code; {{{while (false) { out.print("never); } }}}
Compiler, will not compile used uninitialised variables; {{{ int x; if (x ==0) { } }}}
Compiler, will not compile uninitialised final static variables.

Classes, Only nested class can be marked with static to make them a Top Level Class.
Classes, Non nested classes cannot be marked protected, or private, only public or implicit package
Classes, The one and only {{{public}}} class cannot be marked static, as its already a 
Classes, that are nested and marked as private are invisible outside the java file.
Inner Classes, cannot have static initialization sequences.
Inner Classes, need to be top level i.e. static to have their own static variables, or methods.
Inner Classes, inside methods can never be top level, i.e. using static is invalid.

Interfaces, are implicitly {{{public abstract}}}
Interfaces, All methods must be and are implicitly public
Interfaces, All variables must be and are implicitly public final static
Interfaces, can extend, but not implement.

Variables, final static variables MUST be initialised.
Variables, boolean (unknown), byte 8, char 16, short 16, int 32, long 64
Variables, float 32, double 64
Variables, 10 implicitly integer, 10.0 implicitly double

String, String s ="abc", s2 ="abc"; s == s2 is true because implicit s.intern() & s2.intern();
String, {{{"abcdef".substring(1,3)}}} = "bcd" 

Boxing, -128..127 are cached objects for new Byte, Integer, and Long
Boxing, boolean isTrue = new Long(127) == new Long(127), isFalse = new Long(128) == new Long(128)
Boxing, new Character(32) is invalid, parameter must be 'c', but {{{char c = 32}}}; is ok,

Numbers,  -0.0 == 0.0 is true   1.0 / 0 is infinity 0.0 / 0 is Double.NaN
Numbers,  Double.Nan == Double NaN is false, x!=x when x is NaN.
Numbers, Math defines final static double PI and E. Remember DOUBLE not float.
Numbers,  Math.round(float) returns int
Numbers,  Math.round(double) returns long
Numbers,  Math package, floor and ceil are only for double, as are cos, sin, etc 

Methods, super classes may define their own methods as supper classes methods marked private.
Methods marked as static cannot override or be overridden. 

Collections, {{{java.util.Collection}}} is an interface, {{{java.util.Collections}}} is a class 
Collections, List, Queue implement Collection, Map dose not; none are Serialiszable.
Collections, are shallow copy Cloneable.
Collections, legacy classes Vector, and Hashtable both have synchronized methods
Collections, legacy Vector 
Collections, legacy Hashtable, non null keys or values
Collections, HashTable dose not exits ! see above.
Collections, Map 
Collections, binarySearch() return index, if not found adds one and negates i.e. insert position 0 becomes -1.
Collections, PriotityQueue implements Queue offer(), peek(), poll()
Collections, LinkedList implements List, Queue

Generics. List<?> is spoken as"List of any object", whereas List<Object> is spoken ad a List of Object.
Generics List<Integer> is spoke as "List of Integer".
Generics, ? or ? extends, cannot add to a collection, but can remove
Generics, {{{?}}} cannot be used in a class def, must be class {{{MyClass<T>}}}
Generics, {{{List<?>[] question = new List<?>[16];}}} Ok
Generics, {{{List<?> question2 = new ArrayList<Integer>();}}} Ok
Generics, {{{List<?>[] question3 = new List<Integer>[16];}}} ERROR
Generics, {{{instanceof List<Integer>}}} ERROR
Generics, {{{(List<Integer>)list}}} Warning, unchecked.
Generics, class conflict;  {{{ class Pair<T> {} class Pair<S,V> {} }}}
Generics, method conflict; {{{ class Pait<S,V> { void m(S) {} void m(V) {} }}}

Threads, wait/notify must be inside a synchronised block, otherwise RTE java.lang.IllegalMonitorStateException();
Threads, yeild is static and take no parameters, Thread.yeild();
Threads, join is not static. threadA.join()  joins the current thread to threadA

The main external attacks to an enterprises web site are:
*Denial of Service 
*SQL attacks 
*Cross Site Scripting

!Denial of Service
Any type of attack that prevents legitimate users from accessing a web site, such as swamping a server with automated requests such that genuine requests cannot be serviced in a timely manner.

!SQL attacks
From a very small opening to the underlying SQL database hackers can slowly, bit by bit build up a complete picture. This processes is dramatically sped up by the availability of hacking frameworks and tools that automate this process for them.

The opening and vulnerability can easily happen when writing raw SQL qurries that take unsanitised input direct from a user input and squrit it into an SQL statement. i.e. control characters are not quoted, in particular the {{{'}}} char.
!Cross Site Scripting
Similar to SQL attacks, where a users input is allowed to contain unescaped controlled codes, only this time it contains javascript code.

Why the “Settle PX” has proved so difficult to find for me, was because of not appreciating the difference between the display format and the storage format of it. 

e.g. for #1447302 Settle PX = "104-4.25" is displayed, where as settle_px = 1.04132813 is stored. 

It took until today to recognise how Findur goes from 1.04132813 to "104-4.25" which is 


a = ROUND(px*100, 0) = 104 
b = ROUNDUP((px *100 - a)* 32, 2) = 4.25 

string Settle PX = a + "-"+ b = "104 - 4.25" 

An SQL implementation being: 

CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),ROUND(repo_aux_table.settle_px * 100,0,1)) + '-' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(50),(ROUND(( (repo_aux_table.settle_px * 100) - ROUND(repo_aux_table.settle_px * 100,0))*32 , 2))) 

However when formatting the display of the fractional part, the rounding strategy is crucial too , as when looking at another example: 
Settle PX = "100-1.13" stored as settle_px = 1.000352 

b = 1.124992 
as Excel ROUNDUP( 1.124992, 2) = 1.13 
but SQL ROUND ( 1.124992, 2) = 1.12 

shows that Findur and SQL are using different rounding strategies, which cannot be rectified without developing(or obtaining) a store procedure to align the rounding results. 

On top of all this, a further discovery revealed that not all "Settle PX" field are based upon 1/32 fractions, but there are all so 1/64 and 1/128 as well, depending upon the a format setting in a Repo's instrument template.

"To short the market","short selling"

When a trade expects a share price to fall, he can short sell to profit from the fall. He does this by borrowing a share and selling it on, then later after (hopefully) the share price has fallen, the trade buys back the share and returns it to the lender.

The lenders that supply short sellers with their shares are usually large institutions like pension companies and insurance companies, who earn fees from lending the shares that they hold on the behalf of a third party.

[[Remembering Speeches]]
We all learnt to read many moons ago, it is an automatic process now, like driving a car or riding a bike, a process we don't even think about any more. But how effective are we at it ? Have we developed good habits, or picked up a few bad ones along the way?

Bad habits:

Every time we move our eyes, that is a fixation. The more you fixate when read a paragraph of text, the slower you will be. In the extreme case of a child learning the basics of read, they will fixate upon each and every word.

Reading out aloud, is good practice. But if the mouth is engaged during silent reading to your self then it acts as an immense drag, as does an open parachute behind a dragster racing car. Worse still a maximum upper limit will be set of about 250 wpm, the speed of a sports commentator, where as 400 words per minute (wpm) can easily be reached by vocalising mentally instead of physically.

Like physical vocalisation, mental vocalisation also limits the speed at which we read; and hence it too must be dropped to obtain the truly dizzy read speeds of 1000 +wpm.

Re-reading a word, a sentence, or a paragraph is a regression which might be either deliberate or involuntary. The former is better than the later, however both need to be controlled to push the envelope of reading speed to it furthest extent.

!Good habits
Good habits:

You "chunk" by reading multiple words with a single eye fixation. The large the chunks, the quicker you read. Fortunately for us, English is a good language for chunking, as the verbs appear in the middle of a sentence whereas in German //et al// they appear at the end.

Being aware of your reading process and pushing it on, encouraging it, sustaining it just as a marathon runner does when he feels the urge to slow down or take a rest, that is pacing; and is a method that reaps great reward with regards to speed reading.
A spin lock is a lock on a thread but the thread is kept active and processing (doing nothing) rather than reschedule.

In a multi processor environment the spin locks works if the lock in short lived, But there is no point at all in
a single processor system, as no other thread will be running that is able to clear the lock in the meantime!

Celebrate St, George's day on the 23rd of April. 

The mythical saint that slew a dragon, saved a princes, and the local town, but true to the codes of chivalry, of which he represents, he did not marry the princes, preferring to carry on upon his knight's mission of good deeds. Where as his earthly counterpart was martyred by the Romans for his Christian faith.

St. George, is the patron saint of England. A well celebrated hero and a champion of the country and of the English in times of strife.

Lord Baden-Powell, of the Boy Scout movement, recognised the saint's good virtues when he chose St. George to be his oganisation's patron.

Today St. George is growing in popularity as the peoples champion, and so too is the English movement that calls for April 23rd to be celibrated as a public bank holiday in England.

Given that there can be up to six speakers in a longer TT session this role involves keeping note of whom spoke, what they said, and how they spoke, and weather or not they were able to answer the questioners question.

Note, this stuff is a bit old and in need of redrafting in some places. Apologies.

!Chapter 1
Early versions of TiddlyWiki didn't have tagging. A couple of smart TiddlyWiki hackers realised that being able to tag your data in TiddlyWiki would be really good and (as is often the case with TiddlyWiki) they were inspired to have a go at adding it themselves. The result was two TiddlyWiki adaptations that implemented tagging, one called TagglyWiki created by Jody Foo, and one called TiddlyTagWiki by Johnny ~LeRoy. 

TiddlyTagWiki used a 'tags as separate things' philosophy, space separated tags and popup menus when you click on a tag. TagglyWiki (and there was also a GTDTagglyWiki) had a 'tiddler is a tag is a tiddler' philosophy, had comma separated tags and introduced the concept of tiddlers displaying a list of their tagged tiddlers.

When Jeremy added tagging to the official TiddlyWiki version he considered both approaches and decided on the TiddlyTagWiki implementation. Jody Foo stopped maintaining TagglyWiki at around that time so TagglyWiki fans like me were forced to stick with their aging [[TagglyWiki]]s, missing out on numerous upgrades and cool new features as each revision of TiddlyWiki came out, until eventually they couldn't take it any more and started wondering what they could do to get hold of an up-to-date TiddlyWiki with TagglyWiki style tagging. (Okay, maybe that last part was just me!)

So when TiddlyWiki began to support enhancements via systemConfig plugins I decided to try to write a version of TagglyWiki style tagging as a plugin. It turned out to be easier than I thought. I managed to get it working and created MonkeyPirateTiddlyWiki (see [[Ancient Stuff]]) to share it (and my other plugins). Since then there have been a few enhancements like dynamic updating of tagged lists and the new sort controls.

TiddlyTagWiki has continued to be maintained by Johnny and now contains some interesting new plugins.

!Chapter 2
In TiddlyWiki version 2.0 Jeremy incorporated the "tiddler is a tag is a tiddler" concept into TiddlyWiki and introduced the "tagging" list, the other central component of TagglyTagging. Some of the main reasons for TagglyTagging's existence had vanished! But instead of disappearing TagglyTagging became the set of tools it is now, an enhanced tagging list with sort controls, some layout changes and a few other simple tools (NewHerePlugin, QuickOpenTagPlugin and RenameTagsPlugin) that facilitate using tags in the powerful TagglyTagging way.

!Chapter 3
After the TiddlyWiki 2.1 release TagglyTaggingPlugin was completely rewritten. Some new features were added like site map mode and better support for columns. Also support for the new refresh mechanism was added which greatly improved the efficiency of dynamically updating the tagging lists.
You can do this right here and now. Maybe you should print this out so it's easy to follow while working on screen. I presume you have some familiarity with TiddlyWiki basics. If you are having trouble following this then try this [[excellent tutorial|]] first.

!Getting started: Create some content
* First hit "close others" to clear up your screen
* Click "new tiddler" from the main menu.
* Name the tiddler "~MyStuff" by typing into the title box.
* Add some contents to the contents box, for example "This is my stuff"
* Click the Done button to save the new tiddler. (We will return to this one later).
* Let's say you just returned from a meeting and want to enter a couple of notes about it
** Click "new tiddler"
** Enter tiddler title as "Meeting with Leo - 12 Oct"
** Add some meeting notes in the content box
** Don't click Done just yet...

!Tagging your content
* Before you save the "Meeting with Leo..." tiddler let's add some tags
** It's a meeting so let's give it a tag called "Meetings". Type Meetings in the tags box.
** The meeting was with Leo so let's give it a tag called Leo. Type Leo in the tags box.
** Let's say the meeting was about budget planning for example. Type Budget in the tags box.
** So your tags box should look like this: {{{Meetings Leo Budget}}}
*Now save the tiddler by clicking the Done button.

!Using the tags
*No big deal so far, right? Now we start to get into TagglyTagging territory.
*Notice the tags appear above the title. They are italicised to indicate they don't exist yet (just like any other tiddler that doesn't exist yet).
*Click on the Leo tag. You will open an empty tiddler called Leo.
**Give it some content like "Leo Runcible, ext 1234. Likes cats". Or whatever.
**Leo's a person so give him a tag of "People" by typing People in the tags box.
**Save it by clicking Done.

!Lets pick up the pace
*Go back to your "Meeting with Leo..." tiddler.
** Click on Meetings. Give Meetings a tag of ~MyStuff and save it.
** Click on People. Give People a tag of ~MyStuff and save it.
** Click on Budget. Give Budget a tag of Projects. Type something about the Budget project in the tiddler contents if you want. Save it.
** Now above the Budget title click on the Projects tag. Give Projects a tag of ~MyStuff. Save that.
* Now find your ~MyStuff tiddler. Look at the tagged tiddler list which appears at the bottom of the tiddler. It should be a list containing Meetings, People and Projects.
* Close a few tiddlers and try navigating to your meeting tiddler from ~MyStuff using the tagged tiddler lists.

That's a quick look at the basics of TagglyTagging. Hopefully by now you have some idea about what TagglyTagging can do. Play around with it a little more if you like. Then continue to...

!The New Here Button
* Click on People.
* Do you know any other people?
* If so click, "new here" in the People tiddler
** Notice that the tags box already contains the tag People. (This is what the new here button does. It creates a new tiddler with the tag already filled in).
** Type someone's name and some notes on that person. Click Done to Save.
* Add a couple more people for fun
** Notice what happens to the "tagged tiddler" list at the bottom of the People tiddler.

!Changing the structure of your data
Let's look at how easy it is to change your structure. Suppose you decide that you want to have different types of Projects: Ongoing, Current and Future
* Go to your Budget tiddler. Edit it and change the Projects tag to OngoingProjects. Save.
* Click the OngoingProjects tag. Give that a tag of "Projects".
* That's it. You're done. Well actually you haven't added the Ongoing and Future Projects but you can see that's not hard. Maybe click "new here" at the Projects tiddler. Or maybe just tag a project as Future Projects and do it from the bottom up.

!Another example
* Suppose your original meeting had an action item for you. Type it into the meeting notes as a wiki word or {{{[[}}}Do Something{{{]]}}}.
* Now click on it and give it a tag of Todo. Type any extra information about how you're going to do it when it's due by etc into the contents. Put a reminder in there if you have ReminderPlugin installed.
* Now make sure you can get to your Todos by tagging Todo tiddler as MyStuff.
* For convenience let's put a link to MyStuff in your MainMenu. This will put all your new organised information at your fingertips at all times.

!Sort Controls and Columns
* If you mouse over a tagged tiddler list you should see some buttons. Try them out. Note that if you save it remembers your choice.

Hopefully you can see that TagglyTagging gives you a powerful way to organise and structure your information. Don't forget that you can still use conventional wiki links to navigate around your tiddlers. TagglyTagging just gives you another way to do cool stuff with your TiddlyWiki.

There is one owner of a task, which may also be sent to multiple people, any of which may resolve it.
Monitors the proper execution of automated tasks, and act upon certain manual tasks.

Events are dynamically generated based upon the workflow configuration. For each "[[Calypso status]]" in a [[Calypso workflow]], an event is generated when the trade / transfer / message reaches this [[Calypso status]].

E.g When a trade moves to status VERIFIED it generates the event VERIFIED_TRADE event.

Dave Bassett of BrandNew. 1 hour talk at Write - clear English\

New Economy: We are in recession long term, reposition services in response.

1. Slivering of media
2. value and price (how people buy)
3. Brain heuristics
4. imperfections spotting

You don't own a brand, it exists in someone else's mind, its their impression of you.
A brand, trust, quality, and value.

Where does most business come from ?  (word of mouth)  What is your word of mouth strategy ?

Media channel overload: Radio, TV, News Papers, Magazines, Internet, Social Media.

Become social whispers.

How the brain works: Systematics/Heuristics   Logical/Emotional    20%/80%
Heuristics are our automatic subconscious response and reactions, where as systematics is our voice in our head, our conciousness. 
Were at natural pessimistic (Heuristic) rather than optimistic (systematic) thanks to the role of evolution.

Impressions, first 8 seconds, at least 11 decisions are made about someone. From then time is spent to prove our initial judgement. To prove that we were right. 

Brains are good at spotting small inconsistency, but can be blind to big mistakes.
Brains run on drugs (don't add any extra). Adrenalin, people buy easily after roller-coaster rides. Stop the plunge for one second, the frightened rider's body is then flooded with adrenalin which slows the perception of time making for an awesome experience, with elation from surviving and purchases of memorabilia to follow.

1. Clear
3. Relevant
4. Action

Give people control to make a choice, but help them to make the choice

"To predict is to control" my pet new idea cropped up in the presentation. From BarndNew's website "Influence is not about control it is about understanding behaviour. Once you understand and can predict behaviour you in effect have control".

Dave with is red shoes, gave a 1st class presentation, he used on us all the points he was try to get over to us. In other words he walked the walk. With NewBrand branding, with networking, with value and reason. He did not overload us, but tantalised us with slivers of the prospect of further value. Presentation had STRONG relevant imaging. Plus customisations for a local Wellington connections (a annual street market bike rider, with the reversed steering wheel. Makes money from people wanting a second go).

Strategic Positioning -  choosing where to place a brand. To predict is to control
Brand Modelling - start where you intend to end up.  "Harmonix process"
Trade Marking - lock it down
X-Mapping - Identify all touch points, become irresistibly attractive
TrojanHorse - ?
BrandAlive - give staff permission to make improvements to build a unique brand experience, engage staff, make them your champions
BrandResearch - Above the line marketing is no longer enough. Find the brand messengers.
BrandImpact - The logo is the faces, what goes along with it are the clothes that have to be just as recognisable
BrnadGenesis - The name, make it memorable, attractive, meaningful, pronounceable, and propietary.
"Creating authentic business messages that stand out and connect with the world awash with information" by Mark Baxter

The best story wins.  If you want someone to remember; tell a story.

Presenting information: Condense a presentation onto one page to hand out.

Landscape, anchor , big to small, signals, 3 colours plus grey scale, short words, 

Toady .... the journey .. tomorrow.
Telling a story, set up the villain, and defeat them.
The topics are determined by the participants at the start of the workshop kick-off on Friday night.  As an indication of the types of topics, in May the Auckland group discussed GWT, Grails, Web frameworks, node.js, GitFlow, Groovy DSLs, Clojure, Scala, Whiley, Specification testing, Unit testing, OSGi, components, Android experiences, Maven, Gradle and a whole lot more..

The topics I proposed at the event were:

The "Greeks" are a series of financial indicators primarily used to measure the risk associated with [[option]] trading.

They are called "Greeks" because of the Greek characters used to represent them:

[[delta (Δ)]], [[theta (Θ)]], [[vega (v)]] but not actually a greek letter), and [[rho (ρ)]]

Ant properties set like concrete, once only. Which is perfect until properties are attempted to be used as flags by macros or targets.

Given a macro B that is to be called twice in succession by target A, two different return properties will be needed. The technique of passing in the name of the return property can be used to do this.

<macrodef name="B">
		<attribute name="outputProp" />
	        <attribute name="stringToCheck"/>
			<condition property="@{outputProp}">
	    		<contains string="@{stringToCheck}" substring="B" />

<target name="A" >
   <B outputProp="uniqueProp1" stringToCheck="string with a B" />
   <B outputProp="uniqueProp2" stringToCheck="string without" />
Wait to see if  socket being tested is becomes unavailable, set property flag is the socket does not go away

<attribute name="timeoutproperty"/>

<waitfor checkeveryunit="second" checkevery="1" timeoutproperty="@{timeoutproperty}" maxwait="5">
		<socket server="${}" port="${iaf.cqg.port}"/>

If timeout then us pc taskkill to remove the offending process.
	<istrue value="${@{timeoutproperty}}" />
		<echo message="INFO: iaf.exe has ignored shutdown, kill it"/>
		<exec executable="taskkill">
			<arg line="/f /im iaf.exe"/>

When an InstallAnywhere is run in silent install mode {{{-i SILENT}}} the uninstaller will also be silent, but if when that uninstall runs a resource that it wishes to remove is locked, such as a {{{.dlll}}} a shutdown is initiated, which is undesirable for a silent uninstall.

Our problem: To create a start menu short cut that runs a cmd.exe and passes two bat files to be run.

It's not all that difficult, but gets confusing because of finicky quoting requirements, firstly with DOS and secondly with NSIS.

Two or more bat files can be chained for execution with a dos cmd file by separating them with {{{&&}}} eg.
first.bat && second.bat
All very straight forwards, now to add the quotes.
""first.bat" && "second.bat""
notice the extra surrounding quotes, which {{{/s}}} dos cmd option requires.

To keep quotes from being processed by NSIS script use {{{$/"}}}

Now to create a short cut:
   SetOutPath "$DIR_TO_RUN_CMD_IN"
    CreateShortcut \
    "$StartMenuGroup\your short cute name.lnk" \
    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe" \
    '/s /C $\"$\"$DIR_WITH_BAT1\first.bat$\" && $\"$DIR_WITH_BAT2\second.bat$\"$\"' \
    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe" \
/usr/ucb/ps auxww
!dismount cdrom|unmount 
FULLNAME=`echo $1 | sed -e s/.to_send//`
NAME=`basename $FULLNAME`
echo `pwd`
echo about to send $1 as $NAME to $HOST

if [ -f retrieval.$$ ]
	echo "FTP of $1 to $HOST worked"
	mv $1 $FULLNAME.sent
	rm -f retrieval.$$
	echo "FTP of $1 did not work"

Combine {{{}}} with {{{find}}} and run with [[crontab]] to periodically send all files marked {{{*.to_sned}}}
find ~ -name *.to_send -print -exec {} \;

{{{<<toggleTag }}}//{{{TagName TiddlerName LabelText}}}//{{{>>}}}
* TagName - the tag to be toggled, default value "checked"
* TiddlerName - the tiddler to toggle the tag in, default value the current tiddler
* LabelText - the text (gets wikified) to put next to the check box, default value is '{{{[[TagName]]}}}' or '{{{[[TagName]] [[TiddlerName]]}}}'
(If a parameter is '.' then the default will be used)
* TouchMod flag - if non empty then touch the tiddlers mod date. Note, can set config.toggleTagAlwaysTouchModDate to always touch mod date
|{{{<<toggleTag>>}}}|Toggles the default tag (checked) in this tiddler|<<toggleTag>>|

|{{{<<toggleTag TagName TiddlerName 'click me'>>}}}|Same but with custom label|<<toggleTag TagName TiddlerName 'click me'>>|
|{{{<<toggleTag . . 'click me'>>}}}|dot means use default value|<<toggleTag . . 'click me'>>|
* If TiddlerName doesn't exist it will be silently created

Reproduced from from:

1) Not establishing yourself as non resident from your departure

It sounds pretty obvious but unless you give up your UK residence you'll still be within the scope of UK taxes. In order to give up your UK residence status the best way is to move abroad permanently. This would entail selling or leasing (on a long lease if possible) your UK property, acquiring property overseas, transferring as many UK investments etc overseas and restricting UK visits. You should also ensure that you're non resident for at least three tax years. Other ways include going abroad under a full time contract of employment that will last at least a complete tax year or going abroad for a settled purpose.

2) Not paying enough attention to timing Ideally you should wait until the tax year after you leave the UK before realising any gains or receiving significant income. This way you'd be outside the scope of UK taxes on most income. There's no point leaving the UK in September and then selling assets in December at a substantial gain. The UK Revenue would usually still look to tax the gain even though you left the UK before the disposal. In this case wait until the following 6 April to crystallise the gain. If you needed to delay the disposal you'd be looking at using conditional contracts or cross options to ensure the disposal date was after the beginning of the new tax year.

3) Not establishing non UK domicile status If you're looking to avoid UK Inheritance taxes establishing non UK domicile status is crucial. A UK domiciliary is deemed to be domiciled in the UK for three years after leaving the UK, but after this date in these circumstances it is generally advisable to establish non UK domicile status as soon as possible. This would also help to protect the position if you needed to come back to the UK for any reason (eg medical care etc)

5) Not establishing treaty residence overseas In order to safeguard your non residence position it's always a good idea to get yourself classed as treaty resident overseas. This of course assumes that the country you are planning to be a resident of has a tax treaty with the UK.

6) Failing to adequately plan for the overseas tax regime Essentially this is the 'out of the frying pan and into the fire' scenario. There's no point leaving the UK to avoid high rates of income tax, and moving to Spain for example which can have even higher rates of income tax (although lower rates of CGT). Therefore ensure you know exactly which UK taxes you are keen to avoid/minimise and research the overseas jurisdiction to ensure that you really can achieve that tax saving.

7) Assuming that all assets will be outside the scope of CGT when you're non resident This is a common mistake. You leave the UK, become non UK resident/ordinarily resident and plan to sell your UK business free of UK tax. Unfortunately the CGT rules would still tax any gain arising from a UK branch or agency trade. Essentially this means that most UK sole trader or partnership businesses would still be within the scope of CGT even if you were non UK resident. A common way to get around this would be to incorporate the businesses and sell the shares. This would then not be classed as a gain from a UK branch or agency trade.

8) Using UK companies to establish businesses which retain profits within the UK tax net Unlike the above, using a UK business can be disadvantageous in terms of ongoing profits. If you ran a business as a sole trader you could personally move overseas and providing the business was not carrying on a trade in the UK via a permanent establishment there should be no UK tax to pay. This means if you established residence in a zero tax haven eg Monaco or Andorra you could escape tax completely.

By contrast if you used a UK company you'd be subject to UK corporation tax even if you were non UK resident. You could extract cash from the company free of tax, but the actual profits of the company would be subject to UK tax.

Therefore if you're planning on becoming non UK resident you may want to think twice about using a UK company to run a non UK business (eg an internet trading business).

10) Not notifying the Revenue This can be costly. You should let them know on a form P85 and also complete your self assessment returns on the basis of your non UK resident status (ie complete the residence supplementary pages). If you don't you won't be receiving your tax returns and unless you elect to file online you'll be racking up penalties for not filing returns. If you are non UK resident and have no UK taxable income you should write to the Revenue asking them to amend their self assessment records.

Dictionary definition - [[metaphor]] ...... NOT INTERESTED .... rush  on with some examples ...

''Bear'' - imagine seeing a bear, meeting it all of a sudden in the woods. The mental picture produced can be compared to the economy or society,

!The process of writing
The steps of writing are like: 
*Mad Man - ideas, ideas, the more better
*Architect - plans out the work and gives it structure
*Carpenter - takes the plans and crafts it
*Judge - critiques and calls for reworks and even new ideas.

People often fall in to two camps the Mad Man or the Architects, and then skip the carpenters step, rushing on to prematurely call for the Judge early and as a result hit writers block.

[[De Bono's Coloured Thinking Hats]]  can help.

!Have Fun
Ways to generate your own metaphors:

*Think of an animal, how are you like that animal ?
*Think of a fruit, how is your child like that fruit ?
*Think of a country for a friend (but not their home country), how does it best matches the attitude ?

!When to use hackneyed metaphors and when not
Old warn out cliché metaphors like "Low Hanging Fruit" are fine to use in speech to one another, but original ones are needed when writing. George Orwell's book "[[Politics and the English Language]] states it is a bad habit to use old or dying metaphors.

The metaphor about Achilles heal, has meaning behind it, and a whole story, of how Achilles was protected from all harm by his mother dipping in magic water, by dangling him by his heal.  But this was to no avail as In the end, an arrow pierced the great worrier's foot. For some inexplicable reason this metaphor was disparaged but not for its overuse.

George Orwell's Animal Farm.  Shakespear is overflowing with metaphors. And authors just love them ...
"Looked with despise like a octopus squirting ink."

!Metaphors from presenters life

Picture of wall made of father's wooden block offcuts, set up to catch the football kicked at the blocks in the action of demolition. But the camera caught no action, just the half demolished wall. Representing, don't be afraid to experiment with metaphors.

A college said he did not like metaphors. How can you not like them. Its like not liking laughter. Picture of a cave. Going looking for metaphors might be like going into the cave where it all dark and we cannot see much. Sometimes we come out with nothing, but it was an experience, other times -- picture looking out a cave onto a curved beach and blue sea scape -- we arrive some where new with a new understanding.

Picture of a boy (he is smart, he is the presenter). Think of a metaphor to explain insurance to him. The audience example was to visualise a circus big top with acrobats and a safety net below. 

The sojourn and talk ended comfortably back where it started, with the picture and image of the tumbled wall of wooden block.

!Have fun, think of your own ...

The media present Nine Eleven, like the story of Father Christmas, a lie which no child wishes to disbelieve.
Light the mind like plugging the power into a Christmas tree.

Warn out e.g. "Is the glass half full or half empty ?"

!Volume Weighted Average Price

A measure of the price at which the majority of a given day's trading in a given security took place. Calculated by taking the weighted average of the prices of each trade. The method is used by institutional traders, who often break a given trade into multiple transactions.
!Value at Risk

|VaR break|3xVaR|
|[[Stress Testing]]|3..10xVaR|

VaR has been called a charlatanism, like an air-bag that works except when a car crashes.
Leeds to excessive low risk taking.
Variance Analysis is the calculation of difference between actual and budgeted amounts, and can be calculated for both costs and revenues.

There are two types of variance:
*favourable variance (F)
*adverse variance (A)

Velai Threads is an open source light weight threading framework that sits upon Java's {{{concurrent}}} package and offers support for:

A Web-App is an application that runs on a server that services http request and returns [[HTML]] web-pages. Web-App servers can run multiple [[Web-App]]s, where each application will have its own unique context, aka address, e.g. two [[Web-App]]s named 'app-a' and 'app-b' have been given the contexts 'a' and 'b' respectively so that they cab be accessed via the internet with the following addresses: {{{}}} and {{{}}}

In the Java world, a Web-App is deployable to a Web-App container, such as [[tomcat]], in a Web-ARchive ([[WAR]]) file. i.e. a zip file containing all the components/files needed. 
<html><img src="" alt="logo" align="right"></html>Welcome to MPTW, the TiddlyWiki formerly known as MonkeyPirateTiddlyWiki. MPTW is a distribution or edition of TiddlyWiki that includes a standard TiddlyWiki core packaged with some [[plugins|systemConfig]] designed to improve usability and provide a better way to [[organise your information|TagglyTagging]].
* [[Why use MPTW?]]
* [[Using "TagglyTagging" to organise your data|TagglyTagging]]

What has VMware to do with Spring ?  The Cloud.

new Spring versions 3.1 3.2 3.3(Java 8)

*profiles - e.g. "dev","production"
*@Configuration - move away from XML towards Java config
*Cache - AOP provision of caching on data fields
*MVC Flash Scope
*Query DSL




MPTW has all the power and convenience of standard TiddlyWiki but it includes a new way of managing your data called TagglyTagging. TagglyTagging makes it easier to keep your information organised and structured. It does this using an enhanced version of the built in tagging macro and a few other complimentary tools like the 'new here' button. To learn more see the [[FAQ|TagglyTagging FAQ]] and the [[Tutorial|TagglyTagging Tutorial]].
If you've no idea what a wiki is then perhaps you're jumping in the deep end a little bit. But you can read [[this page in WikiPedia|]], the most famous wiki of all. Note that TiddlyWiki is different to other wikis in that:
* it doesn't require a server and a database to run
* it's focus is on personal use rather than multi-user collaboration
CA Wily Introscope monitors complex, SOA Web applications in production 24x7 and automatically detects and alerts you.
St. John's run a two day intensive first Aid training course.

!Safety First
The most import message to bring home from the course was to think about safety first, and not just to rush blindly into First Aid action like a White Knight into battle.

!Recovery position life saver
Next was for unconscious patients, the simple act of opening the air passage and turning them into the recovery position is enough to save many a victim from suffocating themselves from a limp tongue, vomit, blood or an obstruction.
If there is no sign of breathing then CPR 30 to 2 cycle is to be started immediately. With children the two breaths come first, where as with adult it is the 30 breath cycle. 

!Pack, Wrap, and Elevate
With cuts to profuse bleeding, pack, wrap, and then elevate. Never pull out the cause of a puncture wound, as the impediment acts as a plug.

!Gladwrap burns.
Use cling film on burns, and keep pouring cold water over for 20 minutes.

!Get your main message across
Get your message across by:
*placing you main message in the main heading
*In other headings
*In the first 2-3 words of paragraphs
*in the first 2-3 words of sentences
*in the description of linked texts.

You can enhance your main message by:
*using the audience's language, vernacular, //lingua franca//, slang, catch phrases.
*being explicit

Good headings are key, which are best when:
*written as statements
*using just 5-9 informative words
*some are questions (but only if answered)
*your audiences key words are used.

!You get 0.3 to 3secs to satisfy a reader. 
A second or two is the most a reader will give your site when scanning. Make that second count. Don't hide your service, make it clear what you have on offer.
!User get annoyed and frustrated easily, why?
They either did not find what they were looking for, or could not action what they found.
!Task orientated
Your users what to do something, give it to them. A Library web site user, most likely wants to renew their books.

Questions can be used, but only if the answer if provided.
!We scan in an F pattern, take advantage.

Longer informative heading first.
snappy ones.
In depth meaning follows

!Make action second, you follow up with details.

* ''M''ain message
* ''A''ction
* ''D''etails
* ''E''xtra infomation

!Links separated from the text.
Long descriptions that let the user know where they are going, i.e. will it be a local page, or an off-site link.
*[[For course on writing content for public sector websites visit]]

!Web content will be 1/2 the size of written content.
The formatting and narrow width of Web pages instantly turns text of any length into a column tower of words like bricks in a wall. If the reading of a  long and informative article is the desired result, then provide it as a user action, i.e. a downloadable pdf, and only WEB format a fish hooking summary.

Before diving in to a document, spend some time thinking about:

* Who is the audience ?
* Why are you writing ?
* What do you want to say ?
* How will your reader use this information ?

Whilst bearing the answers to all the above in mind plan how to organise your document. Some general ways are:

* from general to specific
* from specific to general
* from positive to negative
* step by step
* from least important to most important

The general form is //fieldname//'':''//textToSearch// (e."+"g. {{{title:intro}}}). In addition one-character shortcuts are also supported for the standard field"+"s {{{title}}}, {{{text}}} and {{{tags}}}:\n|!What you want|!What you type|!Example|\n|Search ''titles "+"only''|start word with ''!''|{{{!jonny}}} (shortcut for {{{title:jonny}}})|\n|Search ''contents/text "+"only''|start word with ''%''|{{{%football}}} (shortcut for {{{text:football}}})|\n|Search ''tags only"+"''|start word with ''#''|{{{#Plugin}}} (shortcut for {{{tags:Plugin}}})|\n\nUsing this feature you may"+" also search the extended fields (\"Metadata\") introduced with TiddlyWiki 2.1, e.g. use {{{priority:1"+"}}} to find all tiddlers with the priority field set to \"1\".\n\nYou may search a word in more than one"+" field. E.g. {{{!#Plugin}}} (or {{{title:tags:Plugin}}} in the \"long form\") finds tiddlers containin"+"g \"Plugin\" either in the title or in the tags (but does not look for \"Plugin\" in the text). \n\n!Boole"+"an Search\nThe Boolean Search is useful when searching for multiple words.\n|!What you want|!What you "+"type|!Example|\n|''All words'' must exist|List of words|{{{jonny jeremy}}} (or {{{jonny and jeremy}}}"+")|\n|''At least one word'' must exist|Separate words by ''or''|{{{jonny or jeremy}}}|\n|A word ''must "+"not exist''|Start word with ''-''|{{{-jonny}}} (or {{{not jonny}}})|\n\n''Note:'' When you specify two"+" words, separated with a space, YourSearch finds all tiddlers that contain both words, but not neces"+"sarily next to each other. If you want to find a sequence of word, e.g. '{{{John Brown}}}', you need"+" to put the words into quotes. I.e. you type: {{{\"john brown\"}}}.\n\nUsing parenthesis you may change "+"the default \"left to right\" evaluation of the boolean search. E.g. {{{not (jonny or jeremy)}}} finds"+" all tiddlers that contain neither \"jonny\" nor \"jeremy. In contrast to this {{{not jonny or jeremy}}"+"} (i.e. without parenthesis) finds all tiddlers that either don't contain \"jonny\" or that contain \"j"+"eremy\".\n\n!'Exact Word' Search\nBy default a search result all matches that 'contain' the searched tex"+"t. E.g. if you search for {{{Task}}} you will get all tiddlers containing 'Task', but also '~Complet"+"edTask', '~TaskForce' etc.\n\nIf you only want to get the tiddlers that contain 'exactly the word' you"+" need to prefix it with a '='. E.g. typing '=Task' will find the tiddlers that contain the word 'Tas"+"k', ignoring words that just contain 'Task' as a substring.\n\n!~CaseSensitiveSearch and ~RegExpSearch"+"\nThe standard search options ~CaseSensitiveSearch and ~RegExpSearch are fully supported by YourSearc"+"h. However when ''~RegExpSearch'' is on Filtered and Boolean Search are disabled.\n\nIn addition you m"+"ay do a \"regular expression\" search even with the ''~RegExpSearch'' set to false by directly enterin"+"g the regular expression into the search field, framed with {{{/.../}}}. \n\nExample: {{{/m[ae][iy]er/"+"}}} will find all tiddlers that contain either \"maier\", \"mayer\", \"meier\" or \"meyer\".\n\n!~JavaScript E"+"xpression Filtering\nIf you are familiar with JavaScript programming and know some TiddlyWiki interna"+"ls you may also use JavaScript expression for the search. Just enter a JavaScript boolean expression"+" into the search field, framed with {{{ { ... } }}}. In the code refer to the variable tiddler and e"+"valuate to {{{true}}} when the given tiddler should be included in the result. \n\nExample: {{{ { tidd"+"ler.modified > new Date(\"Jul 4, 2005\")} }}} returns all tiddler modified after July 4th, 2005.\n\n!Com"+"bined Search\nYou are free to combine the various search options. \n\n''Examples''\n|!What you type|!Res"+"ult|\n|{{{!jonny !jeremy -%football}}}|all tiddlers with both {{{jonny}}} and {{{jeremy}}} in its tit"+"les, but no {{{football}}} in content.|\n|{{{#=Task}}}|All tiddlers tagged with 'Task' (the exact wor"+"d). Tags named '~CompletedTask', '~TaskForce' etc. are not considered.|\n\n!Access Keys\nYou are encour"+"aged to use the access keys (also called \"shortcut\" keys) for the most frequently used operations. F"+"or quick reference these shortcuts are also mentioned in the tooltip for the various buttons etc.\n\n|"+"!Key|!Operation|\n|{{{Alt-F}}}|''The most important keystroke'': It moves the cursor to the search in"+"put field so you can directly start typing your query.

An {{{abstract class}}} is a class from which no Objects can be created, instead subclasses must be used that complete all the methods marked as {{{abstract}}}.

An {{{abstract method}}} is a method within an abstract class that has no implementation.

Abstract methods cannot be {{{priavte}}}, but conversely implemented ones can be.

public abstract class AbstractClass

   public abstract void abstractMethod();

   protected abstract void protectedAbstractMethod();

   // NOT ALLOWED private abstract void priateAbstractMethod();

   private void X() { }
   public void Y{ X() }

   interface ABC { void abc(); )

   abstract class MyClass implements ABC {}   // VALID

   abstract class AnotherClass implements ABC
   { void abc() { } }    // INVALID - why ? All interface methods must be public.
Annotation adds meta data to Java methods and members.

There are three built in annotations:

New annotation can be defined with @interface
And these can be further meta-annotated with @Target @Retention, @Documented, @Inherited
Anonymous classes are very useful but they do have some restrictions by virtue of having no class name e.g.
*no explicit constructors can be added.
*cannot implement interfaces

{{{assert}}} used to be a valid identifier prior to java -source 1.4 but is now a key word for the runtime checking of assumptions during the development/testing stages and should be disabled upon release, which is why by default assertions are off.

Assertions can be turned on with the command line {{{-enableassertions}}} or {{{-ea}}} followed by a package or class name. With assertions enabled, specific class or packages can be turned off with {{{-disableassertions}}} or {{{-da}}}

The parameters of public methods should not be checked using assertions, which should instead throw [[java.lang.InvalidParamterException]]

int x = 3;
{{{assert x >3: x;}}} 
{{{assert x==3;}}} 
{{{assert x;}}} * compile error 
{{{assert x =1;}}} * compile error

When an assertion is fails the JVM throws an java.lang.Assert error, not derived from Exception, and  which should not be caught.

!Basis Swap
A financial instrument that swaps interest rates between two floating instruments. Used for hedging.

Three types of basis swaps:
i) FX
ii) Index
iii) Yield Curve

FX Basis Swaps are between two different currencies, e.g. JPY LIBOR  and EUR LIBOR
Index Basis Swaps are between two coupon producing instruments in the same currency, e.g.  USD T-bond and USD LIBOR
Yield Curve Basis Swaps are between two different points on the same yield curve, e.g. 3 mo USD T-Bond and 6 mo USD T-bond
A formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at regular intervals, also known as debt securities.

There are many types of of bonds, eg. Fix rate, Floating Rate Notes ([[FRNs]])
Java 1.5 introduces boxing and un-boxing of primitive types to and from their equivalent objects.

Integer i = 2;               // references 2 in the cache therfore
Integer ii = 2;
boolean equal = i == ii; // true for all integers -128..127 (Byte,Short,Integer,Long) 
boolean notEqual = new Integer(2) == new Integer(2); // on demand objects created.

Short s = 128, ss = 128;
notEqual = s == ss;

Remember that both Double and Long still need the literal type indicator, as it is the object that is boxed, rather than the type being inferred.
Double d = 2D;
Long  l = 2L;
Integer i = 2;

Also the boxed type is immutable, just the same as {{{String}}} is immutable, and hence cannot be used in a parameter call as an in out param.

"decouple an abstraction from its implementation so that the two can vary independently" 

An abstraction (what it dose), an implementation (how it does it)

Varying the implementation is straight forward, an interface and varying implementations of that interface.

The interesting part of this pattern is in varying an abstraction that uses the implementation interface, and is where inheritance is used, to build a specialised abstraction on top of the basic abstraction.

The bridge pattern will often pop up through the evolution of software, where systems are evolving at different speeds, but share a protocol. The bridge pattern is ideal as a way of implementing say a new version of a protocol on top of an older implementation.

A call option is a financial instrument that gives the buyer the right, but not the obligation, to buy at the excise price.

A buyer of this option wants the underlying price to rise to be in the money.

[[pay off]] = MAX[(S-K):0]

Where K is the [[strike price]] and S is the [[spot price]]

A [[currency pair]] trade, where a currency with a low interest rate is sold, in favour of a currency with a high interest rate.

Currencies are traded in pairs, i.e. sell pounds and buy dollars.

A pair such as GBP/EUR will by GBP and sell EUR. 

The first term is known as the [[basis]] and is the currency bought.or sold depending upon the direction of the trade. The second term is called the [[counter currency]]

|buy|GBP/EUR|  GBP | EUR |
|sell|GBP/EUR|  EUR | GBP |

The smallest unit in which a currency quote can change is known as a 'pip'.

Currency pairs are traded in lots of 100,000 units of the base currency. 

A currency's rate is influenced by innumerable factors which are mainly macroeconomic in nature, and the main ones are: interest rates, economic output, employment rate, and geo-political events.

Ordinarily interest rates are the biggest factor, higher interest rate equate to a stronger currency, where as lower interest rates connotes a weaker currency. The [[carry-trade]] is a factor in this relationship.

functions of functions - use chain rule (power rule)
product of functions
quotients of functions
Java 1.5's {{{enum}}} keyword is used to define enumerations based on {{{java.lang.Enum}}} which is an abstract class that cannot be extended.

# cannot be extended, but can implement further interfaces to Compariable, Serializable
# can have abstract member functions, so long as they are implemented by enums.
# ''constant specific functions'' can override superclass's methods.
# final String name() cannot be overridden and returns the enum constatns' name.

A one liner to print all the members of an enumeration.
{{{System.out.println(Arrays.toString( ExampleEnum.values() ));}}}
Erasure is the removal of everything between {{{<}}} and {{{>}}} by the compiler and replacing it with:
*<T> replace by Object
* <T extends Serializable> replaced by Serializable
* casts added to make source type correct.

* {{{if (list instanceof List<Integer> // ILEGAL }}}
* cannot use class type parameter <T> in static members, but can e.g. <String> 
Findur's expdate is the [[Accounting Manager]]'s Event Explode date.
Fairness is when each thread has equal chance to be picked to be executed.
A fluent interface is one that implements method chaining to enhance clarity of OO code.


StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();
String fluent = builder.append("e.g. ").append("of ").append("method ").append("chaining").toString();

A java interface is like a [[abstract class]] with no concrete methods.

Only nested class can be marked with {{{static}}} to make them a Top Level Class.
Classes cannot be marked {{{protected, or private}}} 

The one and only {{{public}} class cannot be marked static, as its already a Top Level class
All interfaces are implicitly {{{public abstract}}} 
All methods must be and are implicitly {{{public}}}
All variables must be and are implicitly {{{public final static}}}
Interfaces can extend, but not implement.

   interface ABC { void abc(); )

   abstract class MyClass implements ABC {}   // VALID

   abstract class AnotherClass implements ABC
   { void abc() { } }    // INVALID - why ? All interface methods must be public.

{{{File}}}  specifies an abstract path (filename/directory name ) {{{createNewFile}}} returns true if created, and false if it already existed.

{{{Reader/Writer}}} handles character io
{{{Stream}}} handles byte io.

BufferedReader adds {{{readLine()}}}
BufferedWriter adds {{{newline()}}}
PrintWriter adds {{{println, printf, }}} plus constructors from {{{File}}} and {{{String}}}
When an Object implements the Serializable interface its state can be saved to a sequence of bytes, this process is known as "flattening" and carried out by A "persistent" object is one that can be "flattened" and "inflated". is used to "inflate" "persistent" objects by reading a sequence of bytes representing the object and thus reinstating an objects state. 

{{{transient}}} fields are not serialised. 

Override {{{wirteObject}}}, {{{readObject}}} for custom serialization 

!Object Cache
Watch out for cached objects! For performance and as a guard against recursion, an object will only ever be written once to the output stream, even if {{{writeObject(obj)}}} is call multiple times on the same object, AND even if that object is modified in between calls. {{{ObjectOutputStream.reset()}}} can be called to clear the cache, or the stream can be closed and reopened, if the modified object has to be written.

!Version Control
{{{serialver [object.class]}}} displays an objects [[UUID]] eg.
{{{static final long serialVersionUUID = 102753947383495L;}}}

If the serialVersionUUID of a persist object dose not match with the empty object used for inflation then {{{}}} will be thrown and the only solution is to use manual version control by including a matching UUID in the empty object.

!XML Serialisation
Because of version control problems XML serialisation exhibits advantages over the interface for long term persistence of object between different releases of a application, but is far less efficient because of its loquacious format. See [[JAXB]] API.
public int compareTo(Object object)
   if (this== object)
      return 0;
  if (this > object)
     return 1;
  if  (this < object)
    return -1;

Contrast with [[java.util.Comparator]]
For this particular type of runtime checks, the Security Manager is clearly not involved. Nothing shows up in the StackTrace. It happens at a lower level, in the JVM itself. Makes sense now: it would be really inefficient to invoke the SecurityManager for every non-public method call… (and who’d check the calls to the SecurityManager itself!?).

But still, Why does it work with the java command, but fails within an applet?

To help with performance, the JVM only enforces these checks on classes loaded by custom classloaders. Classes loaded by the standard class loaders (bootstrap, extensions and System) are considered trusted. There are “levels” of trust actually, (bootstrap being the most trusted), but for this particular case, even the System (classpath) class loader trusted my class.

Note: this can allso happen when using [[javassit]] and recursively calling OpTier's {{{DynamicLauncher}}} !

Open a server socket, forever: accept connection, read, write, and close socket

int port = 8055;
ServerSocket serverSocketIn = new ServerSocket(port);

try { Socket =s serverSocketIn.accept();
 see [[]] to read/write 
catch (IOException e) { }
Open a socket, write a message, read reply, and close connection.

final String EOL = "\n\r";
String toSend = "Message"+EOL;

Socket socket = new Socket(url.getHost(),url.getPort());
OutputStream out = socket.getOutputStream();

BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(
 new InputStreamReader(socket.getInputStream()));

String reply = in.readLine();

see [[RMI]]

java.rmi.Remote - all remote objects extend this
java.rmi.RemoteException - all methods of a remote object throw this

If RMI uses a socket factory then UnicastRef2 otherwise UnicastRef for the transport.

Contrast with [[java.lang.Comparable]]
{{{java.lang.Date}}} represents a time zone intendant time stamp. Many of the convenience routines have been deprecated, for improved internationalization support, and simplified date manipulation through

[[java.lang.Local]] {{{getDefault(), new Local(String language,String country)}}}
[[java.text.DateFormat]] {{{getInstance( [SHORT, MEDIUM, LONG, ALL] , local); df.format(Date) }}}
[[java.lang.Calender]] {{{getInstance()}}}

From JDK 5.0

Do you want to quickly read a file and break its contents up into tokens ? Then scanner is for you. Now there is no need to remember to create a {{{FileReader}}}, and then a {{{BufferedReader}}}, and then loop reading lines, before tokenising the line. Just do the following:

File file = new File(fileName);
Scanner scanner = new Scanner(file);
while (scanner.hasNext()) {

The separator can be changed, whilst scanning which gives great flexibility, and [[regex]] can also be used. 
Ideal for keeping references to object that ones dose not control the object life cycle for.

The key is a [[java.lang.ref.WeakReference]]
Whereas value is a normal strong binding.

A weak reference is a reference to an object that dose not count towards it being kept from being garbage collected. A normal strongly bound object will be kept until there is no references made to it.

Dictionary definition of metaphor: 

"a figure of speech in which a word or phrase 
literally denoting one kind of object or idea is
 used in place of another to suggest a likeness
 or analogy between them (as in drowning in money);
 broadly : figurative language — compare simile "

Apama's complex event processing language,  designed to deliver super high performance for high volume low latency time critical event processing applications such as Algorithmic trading.

Turns the pervasive but slow store, index, query paradigm on its head, by maintaining continuous queries over streams of data inputs using Apma's in built hyper-trees and temporal query analysis.

Events are first class elements of the monitor scrip language.

new keywords:
"insert*, into, from, select, retain, where, istream, rstream, with,
largest, smallest, unique, group, by, having, pulse, aggregate,
partition aggregate, partition, left, right, inner, outer, join*, in,
table, update, remove*, stream"
Java Native Interface [[JNI]] defines the {{{native}}} keyword to inform the Java compiler that a method is provided by another language.

private native void doSomethingInC();

Note its only applicable to methods. There are no {{{native}}} classes, member variables, or static variables.
chars are treated the same as numbers.

{{{String s = 'a' + 10; System.out.println(s);}}} Prints 107
This pattern exploits a feature of Apama's correlator where it place a listener that is completed at the end of the event queue, thus allowing all routed events to execute first.

There is never any need to send the NextStep event, as the listener evaluates as true immediately because of the {{{not}}}

event NextStep {}

route A()
 on not NextStep { .. listener step 1, route B ... }
 on not NextStep { .. listener step 2, route C ... }
 route D()

When executed the correlator always evaluates the event condition to be true
and places the listener on the input queue, hence the processing order is:

step 1
step 2
An ''option'' is a transaction with the right but not the obligation to ''exercise'' the transaction at future date.

[[call option]] is the right to buy. 
[[put option]] is the right to sell.

*[[European option]] 
*[[Bermudan option]]
*[[American option]]
*[[Asian option]]
*[[Hawaiian option]]
*[[Barrier option]] the underlying security's price must reach some trigger level before the exercise can occur.

[[The Greeks]] are a series of risk calculation for an option financial instrument.
To find instrumentation points, print the stack trace to a file and then use [[JAD]] to decompile classes further up the stack.
{{{ f = new"c:\\temp\\stacktrace.txt"); fWriter = new,/*append*/true); pWriter = new;
(new java.lang.Exception("Test")).printStackTrace(pWriter);
To override is to change the behavior of a superclass, by matching a methods signature and providing a new body.

In Java, an overridden method can reduce the scope of the return parameter and the checked exception raised, and increase the scope of its visibility.


class Return{ }

class ReturnSubclass extends Return { }

class A 
  protected Return a() throws FileNotFoundException { return new Return(); }

public class Override {
  // Widens access , dose not throw exception, and narrows the return
  public ReturnSubclass a() { return new ReturnSubclass(); }
  // NOTE classes narrowing the return of checked exception, must be subclasses of the original method's signature


Watch out for implicit public for method in interfaces
interface Tricky { void method(int i); }

class opps implements Tricky
	void method(int i) { }   // ERROR "public" is missing 
grant {
// Allow everything for now
A put option is the right to sell at the excise price, but not the obligation.

The buyer of this options wants the underlying price to fall to be in the money.

[[pay off]] = max[(K − S) ; 0] 

Where K is the [[strike price]] and S is the [[spot price]].

Open source testing framework, written in [[python]].

Best usages for black box testing of systems with defined input and output files.
string substitutions:
myint1 = 10

mystr = "hello"
resultList.append('abc.*xyz %d %d' % myint1,myint2, mystr)
!Repurchase Agreement

A money market agreement (lending < 1yr) which enables collaeralised (asset pledged) short term borrowing and lending through sale/purchase operations in debt instruments.

In the money markets a repo is nothing but collateralised lending.

A repo can be thought of a two leg transaction:

|''near leg''|''far leg''|
|cash tran | forward tran|

But that said the emphasise with a Repo is on the temporary transfer of deeds from seller to buyer and back again.

"back solving tools" - Pricer and Face Value Calculator
*Pricer - backsolves for net present value, repo rate, settle proceeds, intraday fee, or forward proceeds for a repo.
*Face Value - calculates residual face value or price of a collateral to fully collateralize the repo deal

Pledging a security to obtain a loan, A repo may be either partially collateralized or fully collateralized 
|collateral < loan|collateral = loan|

The interest charged on a repo dose not depend upon the counter parties credit rating, as the load in secured.

The buyers of repos call their side a "reverse-repo" and either have money to lend for the short term, or wish to temporarily make use of the asset, e.g. to short sell a security.
An [[Apama]] scenario is physically a {{{.sdf}}} file, edited with the [[Event Modeler]], which is translated into [[monitor script]] and injected into the [[Correlator]] where running instances are viewed with the [[Scenario Browser]], but logically a 'scenario' is a real time business strategy i.e. a sequence of possible events.
Alternative generic search engines

{{{sed}}} is a UNIX stream editor, for processing text files with multiple regular expressions ([[Regexp]]).

The most sailiant {{{sed}}} command is the search and replace command '{{{s}}}' e.g.
sed -e s/search/replace/g 

How to replace rounded brackets ? Surround them in a single quote!
sed -e s/[a-z')']/found a..z or a rounded bracket/g
Problems with singletons

# Is too much like global variables 
# Order of elaboration is unknown, especially when used by threads. 
# Testing, its more difficult/impossible to create mock objects for unit testing.
# No knowing where a singleton will be used.
Secure Shell

/usr.bin/keychain provides ong running ssh-agent
# first, upload public key from client to server
client$ scp ~/.ssh/

# next, setup the public key on server
server$ mkdir ~/.ssh
server$ chmod 700 ~/.ssh
server$ cat ~/ >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
server$ chmod 600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
server$ rm ~/
Stateless objects are inherently thread safe, as no data is shared between threads. 
Hash codes are used frequently to quickly look up objects in hashtables, moving from an objects key to a hash bucket, via a simple quick hashcode calculation. Bellow is an example of how a hashcode for a string could be written.
public int hashCode() {
  int hash = 0;
  for (int i = 0; i < length(); i++) {
    hash = hash * 31 + charAt(i);
  return hash;

This isn't literally the code, because inside the String class, the code can access the characters of the string more efficiently than with the public charAt() method. And after it is calculated, the hash code is cached. But this is the essence of how the hash codes of Java strings are calculated.

The algorithm above is quick and simple, and will give a good distribution over the hash buckets, but its not perfect due to the natural bias of certain letters occurring more frequently in a language than others.
A common [[derivative]] contract where two parties agree to exchange streams of cash flows. Each ''stream'' is known as a ''leg''.

Test NG (Next Generation)

Very similar to JUnit, except uses java 1.5 annotations and removes the needs to inherit off of a test class.

Simple to use, with support for both ant and eclipse.

@Test( groups = { "all", "batch" }
class MyTest
  void test1() { Assert.assertTrue(true); }
  void test2() { Assert.assertTrue(true); }
Java threads.

A thread is serialised sequence of instructions, which might be happening concurrently with another thread with its own serialised sequence of instructions. On a single processor only one thread at a time can physically be running but via a context switch the processor can arbitrarily switch between the two giving the appearance of simultaneous execution.

A thread also has life cycle and states which effects if it will be run:

1. NEW (not started)
2. RUNNABLE  (may be running)
3. WAITING or TIMED_WAITING or BLOCKED (not running)
4. TERMINATED (finished)

Missing from the armoury of DOS's commands is the very hand UNIX alias command. However don't despair, as it is very easy to implement in three steps:

1. create yours self an directory named 'alias'  {{{MKDIR alias}}}
2. add this to your PATH variable.  e.g. {{{PATH=c:\DOCUME~1\ashleyc\alias;}}}   (use {{{DIR \x}}} to obtain the short name)
3. create a BAT file with the name of your desired alias that contains the command inside e.g.
cd S:\findur_devt\data\outdir\V9_DEVT\error_logs
So you want to run a bat file without any annoying window popping up. Well your are out of luck, windows sucks, and does not provide any options to do this! The best you can do without going to 3rd party solutions is to set the properties of any short cut to run as a minimised window.

NullSoft {{{nircmd.exe}}} will let you run DOS commands silently

The trick is to loop throw a row's cell by tag name 'input' and then checking attribute type
var table= document.getElementById('orderLineContentsTable');

	for (var r = 1; r < table.rows.length; r++)
		var inputelements = table.rows[r].cells[RETURN_QUANTITY_COLUMN].getElementsByTagName('input');
	    var maxj = inputelements.length;
	    for(j = 0; j < maxj; j++)
			var costPrice;

			if(inputelements[j].getAttribute('type') == 'hidden') {
				costPrice =  new Number(inputelements[j].value)
	        if(inputelements[j].getAttribute('type') == 'text') {
				var returnQuantity = new Number(inputelements[j].value);
				var rtnPriceCell = table.rows[r].cells[RETURN_PRICE_COLUMN];
				rtnPriceCell.innerHTML = '£' + (returnQuantity * costPrice);
