Ultimate Dictionary

I use online dictionary a lot in my work, so here I’m sharing with you an amazing online dictionary tool :

Ultimate Dictionary, a complete collection of dictionaries with which you can look up words right on your Windows desktop. Ultimate Dictionary includes a huge collection of dictionaries that enable you to look up definitions, synonyms and translations to a bunch of different languages.

The program features a very simple, minimalist interface with two main areas: on the left side, you can choose to have either the list of available dictionaries or the list of word results as you search. On the right, you’ll see words’ definitions and/or translations. You can also enable the “Scan” mode in Ultimate Dictionary, which makes the dictionary follow the mouse and displays a pop-up window with the definition of the word right below the cursor.

Ultimate Dictionary is easy to use and performs very fast searches. You can also customize the order in which dictionaries appear, so that you can have your most frequently ones on top of the list.

With Ultimate Dictionary you can look up any word in more than 30 dictionaries at the same time, right from the desktop.

Pros
  • Large variety of dictionaries
  • Special “scan” mode to translate words under the mouse
  • Fast searching
Cons
  • Large installation file
  • You can’t add new dictionaries

Exploring Node.js Internals

I found a great article explaining Node JS internals, must read : https://www.smashingmagazine.com/2020/04/nodejs-internals/ Some other articles : Introduction to Node.js Being an official website, Node.dev 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
