Chitradurga Fort [22 Sep 2009|05:24pm]

Chitradurga Fort, originally uploaded by Chirag Rathod.

Last weekend we did a quick 1 night 2 days trip to Chitradurga, Karnataka. Chitradurga Fort is well maintained and place is great for 1 day picnic.

We had a hard time figuring out where to stay. Eventually we ended up staying at Hotel Naveen Regency. It was a great choice. We booked an "Executive" AC room for 1300 Rs per night and it was great. Food at the hotel was also tasty. It is located on NH4 (Bangalore - Pune highway).

Putting this information here so that anyone planning a trip to Chitradurga does not need to hunt for a good place to stay, the way I had to!

Using an EJB Service / Reference in Soa Suite 11G [21 Jul 2009|02:50pm]
With Oracle Soa Suite 11G ( FMW11G R1 ) we can finally use the EJB adapter. This adapter can be used as a service or reference. This means we can start a BPEL process by calling a EJB session method or use an EJB to lookup or change data. Using an EJB as service or reference is very cool because it is fast ( RMI ) and we can use the same EJB's ( Multi Tier ) for your Java Web applications and your composites ( Who needs the Database Adapter now?)

This feature was added to JDeveloper 11g by yours truly ... at extremely short notice!

If [03 Jul 2008|04:13pm]

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

- Rudyard Kipling
