A convenient approach on keeping SQL in Java

Where to keep SQL statements? This question arises almost for any more-less sophisticated Java application that accesses DBMS. Two most common approaches are: (1) as string constants in Java and (2) as text in external files. Both these approaches have significant drawbacks.

Theoretical aspects of dimming an incandescent lamp

Abstract A dimmer is an electronic device that controls alternate voltage applied to a lamp through delivering a selected portion of the mains sinusoid. Engineer, designing a dimmer needs to estimate how big this portion should be to get a desired luminance level. This article uses a model of incandescent lamp, tungsten resistivity, and human […]
