Java DataBase Connectivity API – (JDBC API)

JDBC is a Java Database Connectivity API that lets you access virtually any tabular data source from a Java application.

In addition to providing connectivity to a wide range of SQL databases, JDBC allows you to access other tabular data sources such as spreadsheets or flat files.

Although JDBC is often thought of as an acronym for Java Database Connectivity, the trademarked API name is actually JDBC.

JDBC defines a low-level API designed to support basic SQL functionality independently of any specific SQL implementation. This means the focus is on executing raw SQL statements and retrieving their results. Continue Reading…

Depth First Search in C++ – Algorithm, Source Code and Complexity

Basic Theory of Depth First Search

Depth – first searches are performed by diving downward into a tree as quickly as possible. It does this by always generating a child node from the most recently expanded node, then generating that child’s children, and so on until a goal is found or some cutoff depth point d is reached. If a goal is not found when a leaf node is reached or at the cutoff point, the program backtracks to the most recently expanded node and generates another of its children. This process continues until a goal is found or failure occurs. Continue Reading…

List of development tools for Linux platform – IDEs & Compilers

One of my most recent endeavors was to set up my old linux machine for development. I chose the Debian Squeeze(6.1.5) distro because of its reputation for stability and also its minimalist approach towards installing packages, and both these features were quite welcome. Having said that, the tools listed here can be downloaded and installed on any distro, in case they are not already included in the installation CD/DVD. Based on my development experience with these tools, this list is frequently updated with new information: Continue Reading…
