Both Ends of A Knife-6

As they walked by divya said,” hope your team is in high spirits. I think you ll surely win tomorrow.” ajay just smiled and said, “I love you like hell.” She hid a big smile and blushed and asked,” I hope we live for a long time happily. When shall v marry?” Ajay thought for a while and said, “After four years divs. By then I would surely be in the national team and would have got a bank job or any government job and you would have also made it to the national team if you continue performing like this. But the truth is I want to marry you this instant. I want to be the best husband the world has seen as you are the best girl the world has seen”. Divya was leaning on his shoulders and holding his hands and they walked with a single shadow. Divya slowly hissed near his ears, “I want to die this instant. I am too happy.” Sometimes truth is truly stranger than fiction. A lorry came out of somewhere as usual with malfunctioning brakes and sent both ajay and divya flying and both came down as shattered as their dreams. Divya was declared dead that day itself and ajay had broken his spine which means ajay’s football career was over…. All I could do was to cry hearing these stories from his grandpa and principal uncle. I felt we certainly don’t get the best of moments or bear the worst of moments in our life. The extremes are yet to be discovered. Till then I thought my life was the worst but then decided how much a happy life I was leading. I thanked god for the first time after the day I saw niki…

My 10 years in Application Development

It's been around 10 years since I started programming. May be a bit more, if I have to include my first attempts at C programming in school. But it would be a grave insult to call remembering ten lines of code and just replicating it to put a star on the screen. I also did a course on Visual basic, but it was more gimmicks that Application development. But it was truly in the year 2007 when I started my Master in Computer Applications that I found a new flare for developing applications. 
I was very late to computers in general and even when I joined my Masters, computers were not really accessible to me. But when I joined my Masters where one is actually expected to hone the skills which they already have, but in case it was were I was learning the skills, initially it was very difficult. I was not sure what computers had for me nor I had a natural flair for programming. But the thing about computers that attracted me was the visual medium it gave. Initially it was just a door t…

Changing Timezone in Postgresql, Ubuntu

Timezone and locale are integral concepts that one should be aware of when implementing a System. For example. if you create a database in PostgreSql, it will use the default System settings for the database. Lets say you have a server in UK and your client is US. If the client tries to retrieve the current date or time, it is going to show the UK time and not the US one.
Today I encountered a different issue in our client place where the Ubuntu timezone and PostgreSql timezone were showing a incorrect values. Instead of Indian Standard Time (IST) it was showing Pacific Daylight Time(PDT). These are the steps that I followed to change the timezone to IST in PostgreSql and Ubuntu.
Changing timezone in Ubuntu:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdataYou will be prompted to choose the continent and then the area. Provided screen shots where we configure the location.
Use TAB key to navigate to the OK button and then press Enter.

The changes will get reflected immediately. To check it you can open a n…

Dissecting Openbravo 3.0 UI Architecture

Having been worked on Openbravo 3.0 UI for more than a year now (right from RC1) , Openbravo has leaped ahead of most contemporary ERP's in terms of UX design and usability. And a part of the credit has to go to the community too as they were actively involved in finalizing the UX and also involved enthusiastically in tested out the RC versions and providing their feedback.

In this post, I have tried to draw limelight on the basic UI components that are being used in Openbravo and their corresponding smartclient components. This is just to provide a very high level idea on how the entire architecture is coupled together. I have tried to use a single screen shot of Openbravo interface and tried to map the base components here.

The hierarchy can be visualized in simple terms as follows:

Exhaustive information on these components are provided in the Openbravo Wiki here.

Most of these components are defined and managed from individual files (or code) thereby making it really easy to …
