  • Today is Roy Batty’s Birthday
  • Had a thought this morning. Rather than just having anonymous people post what they think is newsworthy, have a Journalist chatbot (something as simple as Eliza could work) tease out more information. The pattern of response, possibly augmented by server pulls for additional information might get to some really interesting responses, and a lot more input from the user.
  • Ok, now that I’ve got the path information figured out, migrating to vanilla JPA.
  • Viewing the sql requiresa  library specific property, but everything else is vanilla. This gets the tables built:
    <persistence xmlns="" version="2.1">
        <persistence-unit name="NetworkService" transaction-type="RESOURCE_LOCAL">
                <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.driver" value="com.mysql.jdbc.Driver"/>
                <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.url" value="jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/projpa"/>
                <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.user" value="root"/>
                <property name="javax.persistence.jdbc.password" value="edge"/>
                <property name="javax.persistence.schema-generation.database.action" value="drop-and-create"/>
                <!-- enable this property to see SQL and other logging -->
                <property name="eclipselink.logging.level" value="FINE"/>
  • Here’s a simple JPA commit:
    public void addUsers(int num){
        for(int i = 0; i < num; ++i) {
            BaseUser bu = new BaseUser("firstname_" + i, "lastname_" + i, "login_" + i, "password_" + i);
  • Here’s a simple Criteria pull:
    public void getAllUsers(){
        CriteriaBuilder cb = em.getCriteriaBuilder();
        CriteriaQuery<BaseUser> cq = cb.createQuery(BaseUser.class);
        TypedQuery<BaseUser> tq = em.createQuery(cq);
        users = new ArrayList<>(tq.getResultList());
  • Here’s a more sophisticated query. This can be made much better easily, but that’s for next week.
    String Query = "SELECT bd FROM dictionaries bd WHERE bd.owner.login LIKE '%_4%'";
    TypedQuery<BaseDictionary> dictQuery = em.createQuery(Query, BaseDictionary.class);
    List<BaseDictionary> bds = dictQuery.getResultList();
    for(BaseDictionary bd : bds){
