SQLJ Reference

This is the source distribution of the SQLJ reference implementation
version 1.0.1.1.

You must have JDK1.1 or later, JavaCC 0.7.1, GNUmake, and Unix utilities
to compile this source distribution.

If you want to install and compile the sources right away, you can run
gmake and follow the instructions that are displayed.

————————————————————————-
WHAT IS SQLJ?

Oracle, IBM, Sybase, Tandem, Informix, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, and
others have produced the SQLJ Standard for embedding static SQL statements
and constructs in Java programs (ANSI proposal X3H2 98-227).

SQLJ is a way to reduce the development and maintenance costs of Java
programs that require Database connectivity. SQLJ provides a simpler model
for Java code containing static SQL Statements (SQL which does not change each
time you run your application or applet. Applications typically contain
much more static SQL than dynamic SQL).

The reductions in the development and maintenance costs arise because SQLJ
uses an easier methodology of embedding SQL directly into Java programs,
resulting in code that is more concise and more legible. SQLJ can further
make coding easier by providing compile-time checks on the SQL statements
your application uses. In using dynamic SQL API’s such as JDBC, you won’t
find out if your SQL is syntactically or semantically wrong until you test
the line in your code which runs it.

This implementation is intended to work with any standard JDBC Driver running
against any Database Management System.

—————————————————————————
WHO IS THIS DISTRIBUTION FOR?

This distribution contains the source code of the SQLJ reference
implementation. Unless you want to:
– write SQLJ profile customizations, e.g. to support features or
additional databases,
– write SQLJ SQL checkers for particular databases, or
– embed the SQLJ preprocessor in IDE environments
you will probably not need to use this distribution.

Also note, that this distribution contains SOURCE ONLY. Documentation of
the SQLJ specification and the SQLJ preprocessor is packaged with the
binary SQLJ Reference Distribution 1.0.1.1.

This source distribution contains
- this file [README]
- a GNU makefile for building and compiling the source [GNUmakefile]
- a makefile include for specifying the location for generated classes
[ClassRepository]
- one subdirectory for each of the Java packages that make up SQLJ

—————————————————————————
INSTALLATION

(1) Unzip the distribution file as per operating system instructions below.
The sources will be installed in a directory sqlj/src.

Unix
gzip -dc sqlj___RELEASEFILE__src.tgz | tar xvf -

NT/Win95
Use Winzip to unzip sqlj___RELEASEFILE__src.zip to sqlj___RELEASEFILE__src_stored.zip
and then unzip that file.

(2) SQLJ uses Java 1.1 or later. You can download a Java 1.1 or later
development kit from:

http://www.javasoft.com/products/jdk/1.1/

SQLJ uses JavaCC 0.7.1 and the Java 1.1 grammar provided with it.
You can download JavaCC (including jjtree) version 0.7.1 from

http://www.suntest.com/JavaCC/download.html

The Java 1.1 grammar is copyright by Sun Microsystems and can not be
included in this distribution. However, you can obtain it from:

http://www.cs.ucla.edu/~dongwon/JavaCC/java/Java1.1.jj

Once you have downloaded it, you must place the Java1.1.jj file into
this directory to allow gmake to continue.

(3) Edit the ClassRepository file to make the repository variable
point to the directory where you want the compiled class files
to be placed.

(4) The oracle.util.javadep package is not part of SQLJ proper.
However, since it is used for ‘gmake depend’ targets, it is also built.

(5) After you have retrieved Java1.1.jj and made changes to ClassRepository,
you can build and compile the source by typing ‘gmake’.

Other targets:
gmake clean – removes created classes and files
gmake all – rebuilds all packages
gmake depend – rebuilds intra-package dependencies
gmake javadoc – creates Javadoc pages for all packages

————————————————————————-
SUPPORT

There is no official Oracle support for this source distribution.

However, your may direct suggestions for fixes and enhancements to:

"You know when you do something stupid and you realize your life sucks? Well, that me! My Name Is Earl!"
Road trip!
Ever since I started this filming location album, the market from episode 1 of "My Name Is Earl" (top) has been on my short "gotta do" list. Because this place is so far away from…well, everything, it was not a convenient drive by. Well, today I made a trip out to Beaumont just to shoot this location.
Earl gets hit by a car in front of the Beaumont Auto Spa.

How to sample port wine

A few nice california wine images I found:

How to sample port wine
california wine

If you’re not a fan of drinking port wine, try this —
1.) Find some dark chocolate;
2.) Have a small bite of the dark chocolate, to get the taste in your mouth;
3.) Have a small sip of the port, to mix it lightly with the chocolate;
4.) Put the rest of the chocolate in your mouth, start chewing, and as you’re almost finished, drink the rest of the port.

This is a great way to mix two rich, robust tastes. If you find ports to be too sweet, this may help soften the port taste and really make it pop. We learned this trick at the excellent Jacuzzi Wines, when we had their "Chocolate Wine Shots."

Enjoyed a lovely sparkling wine tasting at Schramsberg today. Many other highlights today that I’ll be posting more about over the weekend..

How Going To The Movies Should Be

I thought I’d break up some of the Chicago pictures. This is a pictures of the sign above the marquee at the Michigan Theater. My Wife and I went and saw "In Bruges" (really good movie btw) there. I have never been to a theater like this before. There was a small private theater in my home town back in New York, but it wasn’t as well appointed as this place. I hope we can go back there again before we movie.
