Free Udacity cource covers Deep Learning

I read an article about Deep Learning during a recent flight and thought it was worth learning more about.  Machine learning is one of the fastest-growing and most exciting fields out there, and deep learning represents its true bleeding edge. In this course, you’ll develop a clear understanding of the motivation for deep learning, and design intelligent systems that learn from complex and/or large-scale datasets.–ud730

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/mail/Authenticator

OS: Fefora 21
Container: apache-tomcat-8.0.23

javamail related jar files: /usr/share/java/javax.mail/javax.mail.jar

Also had my own mail.jar in the $TOMCAT_HOME/lib.

One workaround suggested adding the necessary mail.jar to the war file build.   I went ahead and added the mail.jar to the application war.   I also removed the mail.jar from the $TOMCAT_HOME/lib.  All seems to be working fine with the changes.

+ “VALUES(?,?,?,?,”
ps = conn.prepareStatement(query);
ps.setInt(1, brdKey);
ps.setInt(2, formDO.getSpeciesKey());
ps.setString(3, formDO.getBreedName());
ps.setString(4, formDO.getBreedExtId().toUpperCase());
ps.setString(5, request.getSession().getAttribute(“USERNAME”).toString());
ps.setString(6, request.getSession().getAttribute(“USERNAME”).toString());

Android OkHttpClient with cache and cookie support

Instantiate the CustomOkClientImpl and call configureOkClientImpl to get the OkClient as shown in the following example.  The okhttp-1.3.0-jar-with-dependencies.jar and retrofit-1.4.1.jar packages are required.

    Log.i(“ResetResults”, “call for new OkHttpClient()”);
    CustomOkClientImpl custHttpClient = new CustomOkClientImpl();
    OkClient okClient = custHttpClient.configureOkClientImpl(LoginActivity.this, true, true);

package com.wolmerica.example;
import android.content.Context;
import android.util.Log;
import com.squareup.okhttp.HttpResponseCache;
import com.squareup.okhttp.OkHttpClient;
import retrofit.client.OkClient;
public class CustomOkClientImpl {
    public OkClient configureOkClientImpl(Context connContext,Boolean withCache,                                                                               Boolean withCookie) {
        // Define an HttpClient to be used by RestAdapter.
Log.i(“OkClient”, “create a new OkHttpClient()”);
OkHttpClient okHttpClient = new OkHttpClient();
        if (withCache) {
Log.i(“OkClient”, “withCache logic”);
File cacheDir = connContext.getCacheDir();
HttpResponseCache cache = null;
            try {
cache = new HttpResponseCache(cacheDir, 1024);
} catch (IOException e) {
Log.i(“OkClient”, “IOException: ” + e.getMessage());
        if (withCookie) {
Log.i(“OkClient”, “withCookie logic”);
CookieManager cm = new CookieManager();
        return (new OkClient(okHttpClient));
