Project BigResource

Since 2005, our team is working 24/7/365 to maintain one of the World's largest resource center for webmasters and programmers. The project comprises a directory of 50,000 Scripts & Tutorials relating a wide range of programming languages from PHP, .NET, ASP and Java to emerging Android & iOS development.

We also maintain an index of over 3 million questions/answers posted over internet relating aforementioned technologies. To learn more about Tracker, click here.

It took us 10 years of hard work to build an index of 3 million plus qualified Q&As by humans, not the bots. Just Crawling and building a database of messages is not an art. The success of this unique project lies in the human editing of these messages by professionals for content validity and definitive solution to various problems to stay focused on the issue & saving time. Compare and see the difference between an original post on a forum and the same edited message added to our index here. No unanswered posts, salutations, lengthy code lines, images, avatars, attachments, closing remarks, reference URLs, signatures etc., just the core issues and solutions to them.

As of June 2014 stats, 50,000 unique visitors/webmasters visit us every day to get benefited from this index. We are working hard and striving harder to provide programmers an unmatchable resource index to their unanswered questions.

Adding Column If It Does Not Exist?
I've been trying to write some code to add a column if it does not exist as the code will be run numerous times and will be parameterized in other software to run across multiple tables.

Here is what I have made so far:

COLEXISTS integer;
vCmdStr varchar2(4000);


I can't figure out where the invalid character is. ...

SQL & PL/SQL :: Add A New Counter Column
I need to enhance the design of one of the tables by adding a primary key to it. i need to know how to fill this new column with sequenced serial before I change it to Primary key.



Now I need to add values to REQUEST_SERIAL but can figure how to do that in SQL. I even tried to use your previous tip and use row_number() but it can only return a full set of values not a single one. ...

How Streams Export / Import Parameters Work
I have a test database with tables that occasionally has to be updated to the state of the production database tables. These databases both stream several tables to separate databases. (ie database A streams tables to database X and B to Y).

I export the needed schema daily from the production database "A". To update the test database "B", I import the needed tables from this export file. I then export the tables to be streamed from database B with the object_consistent=y parameter. I then import those tables to database Y using the streams_instantiation=y parameter.

So this is the process ...

1. Turn off capture on B
2. Turn off apply on Y
3. Drop the tables in B
4. Import tables from A to B
5. Prepare instantiation on tables in B (DBMS_CAPTURE_ADM.PREPARE_TABLE_INSTANTIATION)
6. Export from B with object_consistent=y
7. Drop tables in Y
8. Import from B to Y with streams_instantiation=y
9. Start apply on Y
10. Start capture on B

I ran this overnight through an OEM job and it appeared to work, just not how I expected. When I came in there was a lot of activity on both databases. All sessions were from the streams admin account. This continued for some time (long after the job had finished). During this time the "captured scn", "applied scn" & "last enqueued scn" values were quite different on the source side (didn't jot those down). I compared these ot the "last applied message number" on the target side and the valuse were quite a bit off.

After the activity subsided, the SCN values were all in the same ballpark. So I figure all the activity was changes getting applied from database B to database Y. I tested out the streaming and it's working fine.

I thought the parameters in the export and import statements were supposed to sync up the SCNs. That is I thought they would start off in the same state and there would be no need for applying changes. No one changed anything on the source database overnight.

I must not be understanding how the streams export/import parameters work. ...

PL/SQL :: Extract Number From String
I am using this Regexp to extract numbers from a string, and I doubt that there is a more efficient way to get this done:

SELECT  regexp_replace (regexp_replace ( REGEXp_REPLACE ('  !@#$%^&*()_+= '' + 00 SDFKA 324 000 8702 234 |  " ' , '[[:punct:]]',''), '[[:space:]]',''), '[[:alpha:]]','')  FROM dual

Is there a more efficient way to get this done ? ...

Wireless :: 1 User Account Cannot Connect On Internet?
I have a laptop with 2 user account (one for me - administrator and the other for my eleven year old son). Connection is wireless. Until a few months ago everything was working fine and then the problems started: my son could no longer connect on the internet with Explorer and Google Chrome but I managed to connect it via Firefox. And it worked until yesterday. As of yesterday he can no longer connect to the internet even with Firefox. I tried again as an administrator to reinstall Google Chrome, but the icon is shown only on my user account. I took a completely new browser - Opera, but fails to connect. When I go to Diagnose & Repair connection problems - shows no problems. On my account everything is working properly. OS is Windows Vista Home Premium ...

Updating Tables Data VB 2010?
I have one DataSet and two forms, Customers and Efficiency. When I make changes to the Customers table (Delete a Customer for instance) It does not reflect the changes on the Efficiency table. The default form is Efficiency and I'm calling the Customers form from within the Efficiency form. I make the change in the Customer form, I then close the Customer form and call the Efficiency form back. The data is not updated on the Efficiency side until I close the application and re-open it. what code I need and where to inject this code? ...

Sql - Configuration File For .net (Unable To Pass In Correct Values)
An exert from my config file looks liek this.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>


EDIT: I am able to pass in the string perfectly when using Visual Studio 2005. But when using VS 2003 and a loiwer .net framework it will not let me, unless I hard code it in.

Could something be enabled/disabled on one of these instances of VS? Or could this just be an error with the older versions of .net? I think I am using 1.1??(will have to check) in 2003. ...

Making A Program That Has Two Forms?
I am making a program in (visual basic) that has two forms. I have one as a sort of "main" base which will be behind everything. Then I have another additional form which is suppose to go on top of the "main" form. Well I get this to work when I show both of the forms, but I want the smaller (additional) form to be centered onto the main form. If you want an easier sense of it, its a small box in a big box. (all centered and aligned). Does anyone know how to do this? ...
