subeclipse 1.6 and svn 1.8 upgrade

I used to use subeclipse to connect in addition to having subversion command line client to work on same repo.  Subeclipse used to be great when doing move/rename in eclipse and adding new files without moving to command line.

Recently operations upgraded svn to 1.8 version and somehow subeclipse broke

it kept giving org.tigris.subversion.javahl.ClientException: svn: URL 'svn+ssh://' non-existent in revision '120,109'

At first I thought its eclipse issue because I was able to connect to some other public svn repo fine.

Then I found out that public repo was on 1.7 svn version and our svn server was upgraded to 1.8. I  had subeclipse 1.6 client connector.

I upgraded eclipse and reinstalled subeclipse but no luck.  Finally gave up  on subeclipse and installed subversive with 1.8 connector.

Even subversive worked fine but it wont show up Team->Share project for one repo. Restarting eclipse or other things wont help. Finally I figured out you just remove project from eclipse and add it back and that would solve it, phew.

Even with so many issues and bugs, open source software rocks :).

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()
