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.

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. A revision of the first book written from a completely ´´Python 3´´ viewpoint, 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, object-oriented, 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.

Whether you are a new or experienced Enterprise developer, you should find the examples and accompanying text a valuable and accessible knowledge base for creating your own solutions. Before proceeding with this book, you should be familiar with Volume One of this tutorial, The Java EE 7 Tutorial: Volume 1, Fifth Edition . Both volumes assume that you have a good knowledge of the Java programming language. Volume II contains advanced topics that build on the chapters and examples introduced in Volume I. This tutorial uses examples to describe the features and functionalities available in the Java EE platform for developing enterprise applications. Whether you are a new or experienced Enterprise developer, you should find the examples and accompanying text a valuable and accessible knowledge base for creating your own solutions. With Java EE 7, the development of Java enterprise applications has never been easier or faster. The aim of the Java EE platform is to provide developers with a powerful set of APIs while reducing development time, reducing application complexity, and improving application performance. The Java EE platform uses a simplified programming model. XML deployment descriptors are optional. Instead, a developer can simply enter the information as an annotation directly into a Java source file, and the Java EE server will configure the component at deployment and runtime. These annotations are generally used to embed in a program data that would otherwise be furnished in a deployment descriptor. With annotations, the specification information is put directly in your code next to the program element that it affects.

Modeled after UML Distille Product Description The need to handle increasingly larger data volumes is one factor driving the adoption of a new class of nonrelational ?NoSQL? databases. Advocates of NoSQL databases claim they can be used to build systems that are more performant, scale better, and are easier to program. NoSQL Distilled is a concise but thorough introduction to this rapidly emerging technology. Pramod J. Sadalage and Martin Fowler explain how NoSQL databases work and the ways that they may be a superior alternative to a traditional RDBMS. The authors provide a fast-paced guide to the concepts you need to know in order to evaluate whether NoSQL databases are right for your needs and, if so, which technologies you should explore further. The first part of the book concentrates on core concepts, including schemaless data models, aggregates, new distribution models, the CAP theorem, and map-reduce. In the second part, the authors explore architectural and design issues associated with implementing NoSQL. They also present realistic use cases that demonstrate NoSQL databases at work and feature representative examples using Riak, MongoDB, Cassandra, and Neo4j. In addition, by drawing on Pramod Sadalage?s pioneering work, NoSQL Distilled shows how to implement evolutionary design with schema migration: an essential technique for applying NoSQL databases. The book concludes by describing how NoSQL is ushering in a new age of Polyglot Persistence, where multiple data-storage worlds coexist, and architects can choose the technology best optimized for each type of data access.
