The export regulations that you mention apply to a specific set of technologies, often related to defense/military, space, and energy technology. Explicitly excluded from regulation are things released to the public domain and any mathematical, scientific, or engineering principles taught in schools or universities. If you can go to your local library, an ...

They way I've approached a similar issue was by creating a separate service. Requests for excel data are placed in a queue. The service then processes the requests and returns the excel as an email attachment, the return emails are specified as part of the initial request. This has worked flawlessly for us, and when things crashes (I've only every had two ...

Choose a more generic naming scheme, place the title in the text file along with the other attributes, and tell my boss to live with it. This will be the best solution, as not only do you have to deal with encoding and decoding the filenames, you have to deal with filenames that might be too long or not meet your filesystem limitations as well, ...

I sent an email to the Apple Export Compliance department, and got a reply back: If your app only uses or accesses encryption provided in iOS, you do not need any further approvals from French authorities. So it seems for my case (using iOS's build in SSL/HTTPS/AES) I need to do nothing further. Anyone finding the answer in the future might also ...

WinMerge can diff compare any file(s) or folder(s) and generate a report (Tools > Generate Report) of differences in various formats (including HTML and CSV). You can generate a report add your own comments into the results. Run the report at the file level to get a colored diff compare. Ultimately, the best method does depend on your tools (which you ...

Each of our branches has a private folder, inside there we store the patch files for any SQL changes, both the SQL script and a back out script in case the issue needs to be rolled back. Upon release the patches for all the development branches that are part of a release are tested together to ensure there are no conflicts.

Any tool used to inspect memory has to be packaged with our release as it's own jar We've got a restriction to use Java... This makes some things easier, and some things harder. Consider having something that serializes the state out to xml and then a separate program to do xpath queries against it. This gives you some forms of queries, but doesn't ...

We have exactly this issue. Our solution was to engage with the customer, discuss the options, they want HUGE flexibility, but little work. Build reports. We use Microsoft SQL Reporting Server (which the Express edition is free for commercial use but limited, need standard licence for busy/production sites) From 'the screen' you want to print from, you ...

When searching for the intermediate format, there is always a problem with presentational vs. structural markup problem. Typically, DocBook or LaTeX sources use the clear structural markup with usually few exceptions (misuses) caused by the author. On the other hand, Word users tend to use mainly the presentational markup (explicitly telling the block of ...

Common practice in UNIX-land is to just send the plain diff output. The recipient can then use a tool of their choice to read it.

We have been using .NET Xml Serialization of pretty big graph of .NET objects for several years. We opted to take a very simple approach: keep the objects backward compatible at the code level. We generally only add new properties, and in the one case where we modified the datatype of a property, we created a new property with the modified datatype, and ...

We do that using Apache POI, but since Jasper probably uses that too, I don't think you will get much faster results by directly using POI. Large exports (like 50000 rows x 15 columns) require a lot of memory, so increasing the heap space is a must, but you have probably already figured that out. You might want to give JExcelAPI a try. I have no experience ...

We created our own history/version tracking system for the data in the database, analogous to the answers here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/323065/how-to-version-control-a-record-in-a-database
