IOS Press (February 1, 2006) | ISBN: 1586035916 | 350 pages | PDF | 6,4 Mb
Currently, the structural complexity of information resources, the variety of abstraction levels of information, and the size of databases and knowledge bases are continuously growing. We are facing the complex problems of structuring, sharing, managing, searching and mining data and knowledge from a large amount of complex information resources existing in databases and knowledge bases. New methodologies in many areas of information modelling and knowledge bases are expected to provide sophisticated and reliable solutions to these problems. The aim of this series of Information Modelling and Knowledge Bases is to provide research communities in information modelling and knowledge bases with scientific results and experiences achieved by using innovative methodologies in computer science and other disciplines related to linguistics, philosophy, and psychology. The selected papers cover many areas of information modelling, concept theories, database semantics, knowledge bases and systems, software engineering, WWW information managements, context-based information access spaces, ontological technology, image databases, temporal and spatial databases, document data managements, and many more.
Dierk Koenig, Andrew Glover, Paul King, Guillaume Laforge, Jon Skeet, “Groovy in Action”
Publisher: Manning Publications | Number Of Pages: 696 | 2007-01-17 | ISBN: 1932394842 | 9.75 MB
Groovy, the brand-new language for the Java platform, brings to Java many of the features that have made Ruby popular. Groovy in Action is a comprehensive guide to Groovy programming, introducing Java developers to the new dynamic features that Groovy provides. To bring you Groovy in Action, Manning again went to the source by working with a team of expert authors including both members and the Manager of the Groovy Project team. The result is the true definitive guide to the new Groovy language.
Groovy in Action introduces Groovy by example, presenting lots of reusable code while explaining the underlying concepts. Java developers new to Groovy find a smooth transition into the dynamic programming world. Groovy experts gain a solid reference that challenges them to explore Groovy deeply and creatively.
Because Groovy is so new, most readers will be learning it from scratch. Groovy in Action quickly moves through the Groovy basics, including:
# Simple and collective Groovy data types
# Working with Closures and Groovy Control Structures
# Dynamic Object Orientation, Groovy style
Readers are presented with rich and detailed examples illustrating Groovy’s enhancements to Java, including
# How to Work with Builders and the GDK
# Database programming with Groovy
Groovy in Action then demonstrates how to Integrate Groovy with XML, and provides,
# Tips and Tricks
# Unit Testing and Build Support
# Groovy on Windows

Jack Smith “Programming the PIC Microcontroller with MBASIC”
Publisher: Newnes | Pages: 800 | 2005-06-14 | ISBN:0750679468 | PDF | 12,3 Mb
The Microchip PIC family of microcontrollers is the most popular series of microcontrollers in the world. However, no microcontroller is of any use without software to make it perform useful functions. This comprehensive reference focuses on designing with Microchips mid-range PIC line using MBASIC, a powerful but easy to learn programming language. It illustrates MBASICs abilities through a series of design examples, beginning with simple PIC-based projects and proceeding through more advanced designs. Unlike other references however, it also covers essential hardware and software design fundamentals of the PIC microcontroller series, including programming in assembly language when needed to supplement the capabilities of MBASIC. Details of hardware/software interfacing to the PIC are also provided.
