Week's Top Picks from JCG

Going into the Weekend, chill out with our Top Picks:

Spring Data MongoDB Example (by JCG Examples)
In this example, we will demonstrate how to connect Spring Data with MongoDb. MongoDb is also a document based NoSql Database like Solr, which we demonstrated past week. Spring Data MongoDb is the module of Spring Data that provides support for MongoDb.

JUnit Best Practices (by JCG Examples)
There are a lot of ways on how a developer can do JUnit test cases, but overall it really depends on the strategy of how a specific functional code can be tested to it’s limits. It’s the developers responsibility to introduce thorough test cases to make sure that the code is stable and ultimately does what it has to do. In this blog post, I’ll share some of the best practices I have learned and discuss my experience on them.
In this article, we’ll be going through a very popular HTML5 framework, maybe the most popular one, HTML5 Boilerplate. HTML5 Boilerplate helps you build fast, robust, and adaptable web apps or sites. This project is the product of many years of iterative development and combined community knowledge.

Over 70 recipes to help you accomplish a wide variety of tasks in Linux quickly and efficiently. Everything you need to know about Linux but were afraid to ask. This book will make you a master of the command line and teach you how to configure the network, write shell scripts, build a custom kernel, and much more.

Learn about Design Patterns in Java from a Programmers point of view. Design Patterns are meant to solve specific problem scenarios. They are divided into three categories - Creational, Structural and Behavioral. Learn 23 Design Patterns in Java with a lot of examples and less of boring theoretical stuffs in this 130 page eBook.

Connecting to Oracle database on a network in python

Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for cartographers, geographers and GIS professionals. It's 100% free, no registration required.

There is lots of information out there on how to do this, unfortunately, it all looks like Greek to me.

I need a connection to a DB so I can add and use tables and featureclasses contained within it. I have tried calling import cx_oracle in python win 32 build 218 but I get the response no module named cx_oracle.
I have tried searching this out (again Greek) and I assume that i need to install a version of it. I have not done this before so do not know which version, where to get it, where to install it, and how to then access it in python. 

We use Toad for Oracle version Oracle version 11.2 I think.


I was able to get this to work using the arccatalog location of the mapped SDE as mentioned below. However, this is going to be machine specific and I will need, in the future, to make this interchangeable. I was playing around at making my own SDE connection using arcpy CreateArcSDEConnectionFile_management but I cannot get the connection to work.

import arcpy, cx_Oracle

#con = cx_Oracle.connect('p747/p747.tfc@ORATFC01')
#print con.version

# Set variables
folderName = r"c:\connectionFiles"
fileName = "oratfc01.sde"
serverName = "ORATFC01"
serviceName = "ORATFC01"
databaseName = "p747"
authType = "DATABASE_AUTH"
username = "p747"
password = ""
saveUserInfo = "SAVE_USERNAME"
versionName = "SDE.DEFAULT"
saveVersionInfo = "SAVE_VERSION"

# Process: Use the CreateArcSDEConnectionFile function
arcpy.CreateArcSDEConnectionFile_management (folderName,

The Periodic Table of IoT (Infographic) by

The vision of the Internet of Things has evolved along with the convergence of technologies in areas such as wireless communication, embedded systems and micro-electromechanical systems. The International Data Corporation (IDC), defines the Internet of Things as a network of networks of uniquely identifiable endpoints (or “things”) that communicate without human interaction using IP connectivity – be it “locally” or globally. According to new research, a transformation is underway that will see the worldwide market for IoT solutions grow from $1.9 trillion in 2013 to $7.1 trillion in 2020.
“The worldwide IoT market is exploding, and IDC’s research examines the full breadth of the IoT ecosystem, including intelligent and embedded systems shipments, connectivity services, infrastructure, purpose-built IoT platforms, applications, security, analytics, and professional services,” added Carrie MacGillivray, Program Vice President, Mobile Services, IoT, and Network Infrastructure at IDC. “IoT solutions are at the heart of IDC’s view of the 3rd Platform and the four pillars — mobility, social business, big data/analytics, and cloud — resulting in millions of applications available to billions of end points.”
It is timely, then, that CB Insights has released it’s latest Periodic Table, this time in IoT. The table focuses on seven different types of organizations as follows (from left to right).
  • The left side of the Periodic Table of IoT includes companies across several sub-verticals that comprise IoT.
  • On the far right, the table shifts to venture capital firms (both multi-stage and micro VCs), corporate investors, angels, accelerators/incubators and crowdfunding platforms selected based primarily on total portfolio investments into IoT and recency of investment in the Internet of Things.
  • The bottom section below is acquirers and notable IoT exits.

El 'Oracle' domina en la primera jornada de Gotemburgo y gana las dos mangas

29 Agosto, 201516:07

Redacción deportes, 29 ago (EFE).- El AC45 estadounidense 'Oracle', al mando del australiano James Spithill, ha dominado con autoridad en la primera jornada del segundo acto de las Series Mundiales, al vencer en las dos mangas disputadas en los campos de regatas de Gotemburgo (Suecia).

En la primera manga del día, una salida perfecta del 'Oracle' por el lado izquierdo del campo de regatas le ha dado el mando de principio a final. La segunda posición ha sido para el 'Lan Rover BAR' británico de Ben Ainslie y la tercera para el 'Emirates Team New Zealand' de Peter Burling.

En la segunda manga, en la que se mantuvo el viento de 12-15 nudos (22 a 28 km/h) de intensidad, los estadounidenses tuvieron que pelear con 'Team New Zealand', pero al final, la velocidad del AC45 (catamarán de vela en ala de 13,72 metros de eslora) ha sido clave para la segunda victoria del día del 'Oracle'

Spithill ha reconocido al final del día que: "Hemos estado trabajando muy duro con nuestro entrenador y hemos sido consecuentes y aprendido las lecciones. Aquí las cosas se deciden en fracciones de segundo y si te equivocas, aún tienes espacio de tiempo para mejorar. El ' Land Rover BAR' británico ha sido segundo y el 'Emirates Team New Zealand', de nuevo tercero.

La tripulación del 'Oracle la ha formado: James Spithill (AUS), Tom Slingsby (AUS), Kyle Langford (AUS), Joe Newton (AUS) y Lous Sinclair (NZL).
