Aggregating DWR interface scripts

My company has a website and running Yslow on it reported that the no of HTTP requests were in the range of 120-130. Accessing the site from UK was pretty slow. Now we used CSS sprites to reduce the no of css images and we were already using JS and CSS aggregation. There were still 10-12 DWR interface scripts and as browser stops rendering while its downloading and rendering js files. I was looking for a solution for aggregate DWR generated interfaces. I searched a lot and than landed onto JAWR. As we are using build time aggregation for static JS I am using JAWR only for generated interface JS. Here are the things I did.

Add jawr lib to WEB-INF/classes

Note JAWR servlet should start after DWR servlet

# Common properties
#dont forget the below property.
#I forgot it and struggled for 6 hours after reading JAWR code to figure this out
======================JSP changes==============================
<%@ taglib prefix="jwr" uri="" %>
<jwr:script src="/jawrBundle/agg_dwr.js"/>


  1. This aggregation module exhibit effective Java programmers how to impact with DWR to create coercive AJAX applications. It starts with a tutorial on DWR’s important features and functions. Then it covers surround up the utilization environment.

Spring query timeout or transaction timeout

If you are using spring to manage transactions then you can specify default transaction timeout using

    <bean id="transactionManager"
        <property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
        <property name="defaultTimeout" value="30" /> <!--30 sec--->             

or you can override the timeout in the annotation

    @Transactional(readOnly = false, timeout=30)

or if you are doing it programatic transactions then you can do

DataSourceTransactionManager transactionManager = new DataSourceTransactionManager(dataSource);

 or you can override the timeout for one particular transaction

TransactionTemplate transactionTemplate = new TransactionTemplate();

Python adding pid file

I have a thumbnail generator that launches multiple processes and the correct way to shut it down is to send kill -HUP to the parent process. To automate I had to write a pid file from python, it was a piece of cake
def writePidFile(): pid = str(os.getpid()) f = open('', 'w') f.write(pid) f.close()
