The W3C XQuery 3.1 standard provides a tool to search, extract, and manipulate content, whether it´s in XML, JSON or plain text. With this fully updated, in-depth tutorial, youll learn to program with this highly practical query language.Designed for query writers who have some knowledge of XML basics, but not necessarily advanced knowledge of XML-related technologies, this book is ideal as both a tutorial and a reference. Youll find background information for namespaces, schemas, built-in types, and regular expressions that are relevant to writing XML queries.This second edition provides:A high-level overview and quick tour of XQueryNew chapters on higher-order functions, maps, arrays, and JSONA carefully paced tutorial that teaches XQuery without being bogged down by the detailsAdvanced concepts for taking advantage of modularity, namespaces, typing, and schemasGuidelines for working with specific types of data, such as numbers, strings, dates, URIs, maps and arraysXQuerys implementation-specific features and its relationship to other standards including SQL and XSLTA complete alphabetical reference to the built-in functions, types, and error messages
The Eclpise Modeling Framework (EMF) is a framework and code generation facility that lets you define a model in any of these forms--Java interfaces, UML diagram, or XML Schema. EMF doesn´t require a completely different methodology or any sophisticated modeling tools. All you need to get started with EMF are the Eclipse Java Development Tools. EMF relates modeling concepts directly to their implementations, thereby bringing to Eclipse-and Java developers in general-the benefits of modeling with a low cost of entry. Unlike most tools of this type, EMF is truly integrated with and tuned for efficient programming. It answers the often-asked question, ´´Should I model or should I program?´´ with a resounding, ´´Both.´´ This book, written by the lead architects of EMF, provides both an introduction and tutorial to how to leverage and work with this powerful framework. In addition to the new coverage (see overflow page) this book provides: · A basic overview of the most important concepts in EMF and modeling. · Analysis of the most important framework classes and generator patterns including insightful discussions of various design alternatives. · Examples of many common framework customizations and programming techniques.

A Fully Revised Edition Featuring New Material on Coroutines, Debugging, Testing, Parsing, String Formatting, and More Python 3 is the best version of the language yet: It is more powerful, convenient, consistent, and expressive than ever before. Now, leading Python programmer Mark Summerfield demonstrates how to write code that takes full advantage of Python 3´s features and idioms. Programming in Python 3, Second Edition, brings together all the knowledge you need to write any program, use any standard or third-party Python 3 library, and create new library modules of your own. Summerfield draws on his many years of Python experience to share deep insights into Python 3 development you won´t find anywhere else. He begins by illuminating Python´s ´´beautiful heart´´: the eight key elements of Python you need to write robust, high-performance programs. Building on these core elements, he introduces new topics designed to strengthen your practical expertise-one concept and hands-on example at a time. Coverage includes Developing in Python using procedural, objectoriented, and functional programming paradigms Creating custom packages and modules Writing and reading binary, text, and XML files, including optional compression, random access, and text and XML parsing Leveraging advanced data types, collections, control structures, and functions Spreading program workloads across multiple processes and threads Programming SQL databases and key-value DBM files Debugging techniques-and using Test Driven Development to avoid bugs in the first place Utilizing Python´s regular expression mini-language and module Parsing techniques, including how to use the third-party PyParsing and PLY modules Building usable, efficient, GUI-based applications Advanced programming techniques, including generators, function and class decorators, context managers, descriptors, abstract base classes, metaclasses, coroutines, and more Programming in Python 3, Second Edition, serves as both tutorial and language reference. It assumes some prior programming experience, and it is accompanied by extensive downloadable example code-all of it tested with Python 3 on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
Digital Conversion and Mic Preamp by ApogeeAnalog clip-on microphones require a mic pre-amp and audio interface to be able to record the signal. While all iOS devices are equipped with a built-in analog input and mic pre-amp, they are optimized for telephone calls and not for professional quality audio recording. Apogee’s award-winning mic pre-amp and A/D conversion circuitry are built into ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital. This special circuitry gives you maximum gain with minimal noise. The A/D converter provides a resolution of up to 24bit/96kHz.Easy monitoringAs the Sennheiser/Apogee digital clip-on microphones plug directly into the Lightning adaptor on the iOS® device, the headset socket can be used to monitor the audio that is being recorded.Apogee’s MetaRecorder appThe perfect companion to ClipMic digital and MKE 2 digital, Apogee’s MetaRecorder is the first audio recording app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to offer intuitive multi-take recording, tagging and file organization for any field recording scenario. MetaRecorder features 24 bit/96kHz recording quality plus software control of the mic input level and recording presets.Transform Your Final Cut Pro X workflowApply metadata tags like Keywords, Favorites, Markers and more to your audio files while recording in the field, then share the recorded audio and Final Cut Pro XML files to Dropbox directly from MetaRecorder. When imported into Final Cut Pro on a Mac, the captured metadata greatly simplifies the process of organizing and parsing your media, substantially accelerating your post-production workflow.Control with Apple WatchEssential features of MetaRecorder can be controlled from Apple Watch – start and stop recording, add a take to Favorites, add Markers or set your microphone input level.The free version of MetaRecorder is available immediately from the Apple App Store. Users are limited to 60 seconds of continuous recording until the full version is unlocked - either by connecting a compatible Apogee or Sennheiser audio interface or by purchasing from within the app.
