Notes on codes, projects and everything
Generally, library holds a wide variety of reading materials and providing ample space for quiet study. A full range of services is provided in a library, such as loan, reservation, inter-library loan, reference, online resource, document delivery, photocopying, audiovisual and microform materials.
Initially, the library transactions are handled manually by the library staff. The references are stored using the filing system. This tradition method has raised many inconveniences to the library staff.
Hence, you are required to do some research on the problems that faced by the conventional library management system, and then develop a computerized library system by using the ASP.NET.
A master page is used to set up a consistent look and feel to the website. However, since it is not being discussed in class, therefore we had got to learn that ourselves. We implemented a simple master page to the website and separate the layout and data presenting element using a stylesheet file. The tool used to develop the assignment is Visual Web Developer 2005 Express Edition.
Following included are the screenshots for some main functions.
With most of my stuff more or less set, I guess it is time to start documenting the steps before I forget. So I heard a lot of good things about docker for quite some time, but haven’t really have the time to do it due to laziness (plus my relatively n00b-ness in the field of dev-ops). Just a few months ago, I decided to finally migrate away from webfaction (thanks for all the superb support) to a VPS so I can run more things on it.
A friend of mine recently posted a screenshot containing a code snippet for a fairly straight forward problem. So after reading the solution I suddenly had the itch to propose another solution that I initially thought would be better (SPOILER: Turns out it isn’t). Then mysteriously I stuck myself to my seat and started coding an alternative solution to it instead of playing Diablo 3 just now.
After reading through the documentation, I find that the role based ACL and work flow can be more tightly integrated. Therefore I made all the transaction into many FSMs and my work flow component now consists of one work flow library and one work flow management model. As I am going a more normalized design (I use denormalized design in work as it deals with a lot of documents, however for a small project like mine, a denormalized design should do well).
I just failed a programming assessment test miserably yesterday and thought I should at least document it down. However, the problem with this is that the questions are copyrighted, so I guess I would write it from another point of view. So the main reason I failed was because I chose the wrong strategy to the problem, thinking it should be solution but as I put in time to that I ended up creating more problems.
I wanted to try using virtuoso as the storage engine for Redland but unfortunately there is no librdf-storage-virtuoso package for Ubuntu. After getting some help from @dajobe, I attempted to build the packages myself. Although it takes quite some time to build packages, but not too difficult it seems.
