Working with MongoDB using Kundera

August 22, 2013 Leave a comment

Recipes for Geeks

Kundera – a JPA 2.0 (Java Persistence API) based ORM library was originally developed for Cassandra database. A support for Hbase was later added to it.

Those who are new to Kundera, should read this to get a basic idea. For impatient ones – Get started with Kundera in 5 minutes!

Kundera now supports MongoDB – a document-oriented database. Some salient features of MongoDB datamodel are:

  1. Documents are stored as “collections” in DBs.
  2. A document can be embedded into other document, and hence no join is needed for retrieving data. This makes database operations fast.
  3. Drivers are available for most of the popular programming languages.

Our Data Model

In this tutorial, we’ll use below EMAIL and ATTCHMENT entities as our data model and perform CRUD operations using Kundera.
Data Model
Our entities in JSON notation:


EMAIL: { “MESSAGE_ID” : “1″, “SUBJECT” : “Please Join Meeting”, “BODY” : “Agenda: RFP discussion”…

Node.js client to server with

August 20, 2013 Leave a comment

Dev's Log is usually employed by browser apps communicating with a Node.js server application. It is however possible to create a client in Node.js if you need to call the same server application. It is also possible for the server to return values by calling a function that the client passes to it.

You’ll need to install and using npm as shown below. Additionally, we also use express for serving static HTTP content.

This is how a client connection can be established. The namespace ns is used for communicating with the server. Client emits the event call with parameter p1, and a function parameter that receives a response code and additional data.

Remember to export global node_modules folder in NODE_PATH before running the script

Newer versions of Node.js don’t require NODE_PATH to be set to the global module path used by npm i -g.

This is how…

A Few Tips for Beginning Android Development

Blog T

Here are some tips from my personal experience so far with Android development. The number of tips is actually ten, so I could have called this “Ten Tips for Android Development“, but I figured there were already enough articles with that catchy title. Which reminds me of late comedian George Carlin :

I have a problem with the Ten Commandments. Here it is: Why are there ten?…Why not nine, or eleven? I’ll tell you why. Because ten sounds important. Ten sounds official. They knew if they tried eleven, people wouldn’t take them seriously. People would say, “What’re you kiddin’ me? The Eleven Commandments? Get the f*** outta here!”.

OK, now that I opened up with a joke, let’s get into more serious stuff…

 1. Choice of IDE

Most of the Android development is centered around Eclipse, although I coded a few applications using IntelliJ IDEA’s Community Edition without…
