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:

Submission to the Special Committee on Moral Delinquency in Children and Adolescents

A few nice new release movie images I found:

Submission to the Special Committee on Moral Delinquency in Children and Adolescents
new release movie

Juvenile delinquency, sex, violence, and motorcycles. No, this is not a movie trailer, but 1950s New Zealand according to the Mazengarb Report, released on 20 September 1954.

As nzhistory.net notes, Queen’s Counsel Oswald Mazengarb was appointed by the government to chair the Special Committee on Moral Delinquency in Children and Adolescents on 23 July 1954. The committee was set up after an outcry over teenagers’ sexual and gang behaviour in Lower Hutt, and other incidents such as a milk-bar murder in Auckland and the Parker–Hulme murder in Christchurch (the subject of Peter Jackson’s 1994 movie, Heavenly Creatures).

The Report issued by the Committee blamed lack of parental supervision for juvenile delinquency and advocated a return to Christianity and traditional values. It was mass produced and sent to every home in New Zealand, causing widespread moral panic and a raft of restrictive laws: the Indecent Publications Amendment Act 1954, which widened the definition of ‘obscene’ and ‘indecent’; the Child Welfare Amendment Act (No. 2) 1954, which enabled the Children’s Courts to treat children engaging in sexual behaviour as delinquent; and the Police Offences Amendment Act 1954, which made it an offence to sell contraceptives to children under 16 years of age.

The Report provides an interesting insight into the thinking of mainstream New Zealand society in the 1950s, and as well as copies of the Report, Archives New Zealand holds all the submissions made to the Special Committee. The record above concerns the nature of comics on sale in New Zealand – according to this submission, "sexy comics" such as ‘Kiss of Thunder’ and ‘Secret Interlude’ contained "bad grammar and mis-spelling… outright sexual allusions… and incidents of violence." As a remedy it recommended Friday night at the library as a family treat.

NowPlaying: Wheedle’s Groove – Seattle Funk & Soul • 1965-75
new release movie

As mentioned previously, there’s now a documentary of sorts coming out with most of the original artists that were compiled here recently (the CD), that will be performing live with interviews! Also, it’s done now, but they did a combined show in Seattle, which is probably the show in the movie.

And lastly, they’ve been dialed in with a new album featuring the talents of the available original artists from the late sixties!
Stay tuned!

Til then… Feel it!

Castello di Amorosa Winery, Napa Valley, California, USA

Castello di Amorosa Winery, Napa Valley, California, USA

Tour Castello di Amorosa a 12th century Tuscan castle-winery where you may taste world-class Napa Valley wines made by a fourth generation winemaking family in a tradition of over 120 years.

The Winery: After decades of researching and studying medieval castles throughout Europe, Dario Sattui began his marathon building project in 1993.

The 121,000 square foot Castello includes, 107 unique rooms, 8,000 tons of hand-squared stones, 8 levels (4 below ground), 900 feet of caves, a completely hand-painted Great Hall, a drawbridge, moat, dungeon and torture chamber, a consecrated chapel, one of the most impressive wine barrel rooms in the U.S. constructed with ancient brick Roman cross-vaulted ceilings.

Yet, the Castle is merely a backdrop to showcase some of Napa Valley’s best wines. The castle produces a tiny 15,000 cases which are sold only at the winery; directly to the customer.

The Vineyards and Wines: Castello di Amorosa has 30 acres of vineyards surrounding its great, hand-chiseled walls, gates, and guard towers, planted with Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon which produce low yields and intensely flavored wines. The Castle produces hand-crafted Italian style wines including Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco and a Super Tuscan Blend all made to pair beautifully with food.

DSC24633, Darioush Winery, Napa Valley, California, USA
napa valley

Darioush, a winery noted for its Bordeaux style estate wines, implements old world labor-intensive, micro-vineyard management and new world state of the art technology to craft fine wines from its estates located in the appellations of Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder and Oak Knoll. Under the direction of Darioush Khaledi and winemaker Steve Devitt, precision and quality are of the utmost importance at the winery.

The Property
Darioush welcomes guests to its new visitor center and winery beginning August 16, 2004. The new architectural building comes after five years in the making, and combines materials, castings, and furnishings from distant lands and exotic locations. The 22,000 square foot winery, the first in America to combine architecture, design and Persian culture, provides a unique and exhilarating experience in California’s most renowned wine destination. Reminiscent of the great noble architecture that once existed, the imagery of the Darioush building evokes Persepolis, the illustrious capital of ancient Persia.

The Khaledi’s Persian heritage is the inspiration and vision for the winery, designed by architects Ardeshir and Roshan Nozari, incorporating clean, contemporary lines with historical references to Persia’s ancient capital city. One of the most important aspects of the Persian culture is hospitality, and the winery is designed to create a welcoming, enjoyable as well as a rich and intriguing environment for guests. Visitors will receive unparalleled service and a sensational experience.

“The juxtaposition of modern clean lines and historical references represent the philosophy of our office,” states Ardeshir Nozari, who incorporated many intriguing architectural elements throughout the building. Among the design features of interest are the 16 monumental 18’ freestanding columns with capital bulls, which act as stone trees at the entrance of the winery, elevating visitor expectations. Richly textured travertine-stone cladding surrounds the entire building. This yellow stone was quarried near the region of Persepolis and exported to Turkey and Italy for cutting and tumbling before it reached the Silverado Trail in Napa. Additional design features include pre-cast moldings, furniture, fireplaces, ironwork, lighting, cellars, and an amphitheatre for performances and events.

The Visitor Center boasts a state of the art facility offering a unique one-on-one experience to taste the complete line of signature wines with options for indoor and outdoor seating. Six outdoor water features with fountains and one indoor rolling wall of water comprise some of the sights and sounds of the guest experience. Lush and varied landscaping creates a sequence of continuous gardens, which lead the visitors to the winery.

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.

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."
