%E2%80%90 and links issue

Ran into an issue where a customer creates public link to a file and pastes into word and it works fine but when he converts it to PDF it no longer works thought the  link in browser url bar looks exact same.  I reproduced it and saw that "h-s" in link url was getting converted to h%E2%80%90s. After some Googling it turned out to be an adobe bug http://forums.adobe.com/message/2807241 related to hyphen character.

  1. The reason why this happens is because the html recognizes the hyphen that it originally had as HYPHEN, which to it reads as e2 80 90, and thus the %E2%80%90 comes about. What you could do is copy/paste an actual hyphen from a text editor, such as Notepad++ into the name of the document. This way, h%E2%80%90s would read as h-s to the web browser.

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"
        class="org.springframework.jdbc.datasource.DataSourceTransactionManager">
        <property name="dataSource" ref="dataSource" />
        <property name="defaultTimeout" value="30" /> <!--30 sec--->             
    </bean>

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);
transactionManager.setDefaultTimeout(30);

 or you can override the timeout for one particular transaction

TransactionTemplate transactionTemplate = new TransactionTemplate();
transactionTemplate.setTimeout(30);

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('thumbnail_rabbit_consumer.pid', 'w') f.write(pid) f.close()
