Che Guevara Remembered in Horana

Imagen activaColombo, Oct 11 (2013) Leaders of the Sri Lanka Government and the Parliament remembered Che Guevara at an activity held in the town of Horana, one of the sites toured by the legendary guerrilla fighter when he visited this country in 1959.

The activity was attended here by Cuban ambassador Indira Lopez, who highlighted that 46 years after Che's death, his figure and ideas continue to be an inspiration in lands as far away from Latin America as the Indian Ocean island.

At a rubber plantation in Horana, Guevara planted a mahogany seedling on August 7, 1959, which today is more than 20 meters high, and under whose shade Cuba solidarity activities are often held.

One of the most colorful initiatives was sponsored by the Socialist Youth Union, which organized a motorcycle tour from Colombo to Vavuniya district, about 200 kilometers to the north, to remember the trip Che carried out in 1952 with his friend Alberto Granado through South America.

jDeveloper IllegalStateException

jdeveloper IllegalStateException in o.i.explorer.IconOverlayTracker$NodeWatcher:802

My Jdeveloper on my Windows 7 was previously working fine.
 Build JDEVADF_11.1.1.6.0_GENERIC_111205.1733.6192.1


SVN caused JDeveloper to break, but after enough digging I found this forum post:

https://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=2332837

Which, sure enough, mentions the error and SVN. Tried the solution that "Suganth" posted and sure enough it worked. To fix this issues so you can work on your projects again go to:

Tools -> Preferences -> Versioning -> General




And then uncheck "Use Navigator State Overly Icons" and "Use Navigator State Overly Labels". Life should be better!

Horana Colombo road construction begin


Hey my blog friends from Horana, here we have a good news

Part of Colombo- Horana road(120 route) Kesbewa to Pamankada in the  will be developed
at a cost of 3310 million rupees.

The project will be initiated today(5th march,2013).

 The Asian Development Bank provides loan facilities for this project.

Construction will be completed within two years.

The minister said that an alternative road from Kesbewa to Maharagama
will also be laid parallel to that.


  • Pamankada - Kesbewa section of Colombo - Horana Road (B084)
The proposed road project, Colombo-Horana Road Section (B 084), commences from 0.520km near Pamankada Bridge in Colombo and terminates at the end of the bypass in Kesbewa at 13+400km. The regular Colombo-Horana (B 084) Road commences from Wilasitha Niwasa junction (0.00km) at Colombo-Ratnapura-,Batticaloa (A04) Road and terminates at Pokunuowita on Panadura-Ratnapura (A08)Road, before 2.0km to reach Horana town, traversing 28+180km. This road section, starting from 0.520 and ending at 13+400, is a large portion of the total length of Colombo-Horana (B 084) Road.


The proposed road project is one of the six road projects to be upgraded under the Additional Financing (Loan 38357-43 Sri) for National Highway Sector Project (NHSP). RDA has submitted draft RP to ADB on this road in May 2011 prior to preparation of preliminary plans (PPs) and Advance Tracings based on final construction designs. This updated version of the RP is made with the availability of Advance Tracing prepared by the Dept. of Surveys giving exact locations, boundaries of individual lots and names of the persons who have legitimate claims for such land lots.

The total length of the project road, section from 0.520 km to 13+400km including the bypass are planned to improve to 4 lane status with 1.5m cycle lanes, shoulders of 2-2.4m on either side, and earth or line drains where required. The existing average carriageway is 6.93m width and existing average ROW of the road is 14.36m in the proposed 4 lane section while the proposed average carriageway will be 12.km and proposed ROW of the will be 24-33m with the development of the road.

However, the development will take in two phases;

Phase 1: Consists of two road stretches of B 084, 1) From 0+520km (W.A. Silva Mw) to 1+100km (Pamankada Bridge) and 2) From 5+30km (Raththanapitiya junction) to 13+400km (end of Piliyandala bypass section)

Phase 2: From 1+100km (Pamankada Bridge) to 5+300km ( Raththanapitiya junction)

JSTL tag library issue in Weblogic


Hi again this too technical, only for who interests about Web development in Weblogic server

I developed web application using JSTL tags and when I tried to deploy WAR file in Weblogic server i got following error:


Message icon - Error An error occurred during activation of changes, please see the log for details.
Message icon - Error Failed to load webapp: 'etaagent.war'
Message icon - Error Error: Unresolved Webapp Library references for "ServletContext@163229449[app:etaagent module:etaagent.war path:/etaagent spec-version:2.5]", defined in weblogic.xml [Extension-Name: jstl, Specification-Version: 1.2, exact-match: false]





then,

by googling I found that JSTL library is deployed by default in WebLogic, so I  added the library-ref in weblogic.xml:


< ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> < wls:weblogic-web-app xmlns:wls="http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/weblogic-web-app" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/ejb-jar_3_0.xsd http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/weblogic-web-app http://xmlns.oracle.com/weblogic/weblogic-web-app/1.2/weblogic-web-app.xsd"> < wls:library-ref> < wls:library-name>jstl< /wls:library-name> < wls:specification-version>1.2< /wls:specification-version> < wls:exact-match>false< /wls:exact-match> < /wls:library-ref> < /wls:weblogic-web-app>

Informix database - INFORMIXCONRETRY and INFORMIXCONTIME



com.informix.jdbc.IfxSqliConnect.(IfxSqliConnect.java)

I got above error when making below connection in java file :

Class.forName("com.informix.jdbc.IfxDriver");
        Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:informix-sqli://192.168.1.1:1000/databasename:INFORMIXSERVER=server_name;user=gayan;password=password;");


So I chaneged the connection as follows:

Class.forName("com.informix.jdbc.IfxDriver");
        Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:informix-sqli://192.168.1.1:1000/databasename:INFORMIXSERVER=server_name;user=gayan;password=password;INFORMIXCONTIME=60;INFORMIXCONRETRY=3");


What does it realy mean?

If INFORMIXCONTIME is set to 60 and INFORMIXCONRETRY is set to 3, attempts to connect to the database server (after the initial attempt at 0 seconds) are made at 20, 40, and 60 seconds, if necessary, before aborting. This 20-second interval is the result of INFORMIXCONTIME divided by INFORMIXCONRETRY. If you attempt to set INFORMIXCONTIME to zero, the database server automatically resets it to the default value of 60 seconds.
       

INFORMIXCONRETRY Specifies the maximum number of additional connection attempts that can be
made to each database server by the client during the time limit specified by
the default value of INFORMIXCONTIME


INFORMIXCONTIME Sets the timeout period for an attempt to connect to the database server. If a
connection attempt does not succeed in this time, the attempt is aborted and a
connection error is reported.
