Exporting File System for NFS in Linux

In Linux, we can export a directory for NFS clients by editing the /etc/exports file.
The /etc/exports file contains an entry for each directory that can be exported to NFS clients. This file is read automatically by the exportfs command during during system start-up through rc.nfs script. It execute the exportfs command and start the nfsd and mountd daemons. If we modify the entries in this file we must run the exportfs command before the changes can take affect.
Now let us export “/home/user” directory :
Edit /etc/exports file using vi editor and add following entry:
  • /home/user, root_squash)
    • This command will make /home/user directory available to
  • /home/user *(ro, root_squash)
    • This command will make /home/user directory available to all users on the network.
  • Here :
    • /home/user is the directory we want to export.
    • is the machine which is been allowed to see this directory over the network.
    • “ro” means mounting with read-only option.
    • “root_squash” means no root write access in this directory.
After editing the /etc/exports file, execute exportfs command to take changes effect :
  • /usr/sbin/exportfs -a

Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read : Some other articles : Introduction to Node.js Being an official website, explains what Node.js is, as well as its package managers, and lists web frameworks built on top of it. “ JavaScript & Node.js ”,  The Node Beginner Book This book by  Manuel Kiessling  does a fantastic job of explaining Node.js, after warning that JavaScript in the browser is not the same as the one in Node.js, even though both are written in the same language. Beginning Node.js This beginner book goes beyond an explanation of the runtime. It teaches about packages and streams and creating a web server with the Express framework. LibUV This is the official documentation of the supporting C++ code of the Node.js runtime. V8 This is the official documentation of the JavaScript engine that makes it possible to write Node.js with JavaScript.

Hibernate Object Conversations

Session methods to use for object conversations Save() A new instance being attached to the session. An insert will be scheduled. Update() Call Update to make a transient object persistent again. It will force a SQL update on the transient object. This is because Hibernate does not know whether the object is dirty or not and to be safe by default schedules an update. This method will throw an exception, if the entity is already registered with the session. - NonUniqueObjectException is thrown. saveOrUpdate() Either a save or an update will be called based on whether the identifier exists or not. No identifier - save is called, else update is called. Or for a better understanding, if the object is transient, then a save is called, if the object is persistent, then an update is called. Reattaching an unmodified instance - If you know for sure that an object is not modified and you just want to make it persistent again - Session.lock(item, LockMode.No
