TreeSet Comparator

When using TreeSet(Comparator) for a sorted set, be cautious that the compare() or compareTo() must be consistent with equals. Set interface is defined in terms of the equals operation, but a TreeSet instance performs all key comparisons using its compareTo (or compare) method, so two keys that are deemed equal by this method are, from the standpoint of the set, equal.

E.g., unique id used in equals(), but name (could be duplicate) is used in compare() and cause problem. The item with same name actually couldn't be added to the set.

/** To sort by 2 attributes **/
public int compare(TreeElement e1, TreeElement e2) {
    // sort by tree name first
     int compareName =e1.getTreeName().compareTo(e2.getTreeName());
     if (compareName != 0) {
         return compareName;
     // sort by databaseKey if tree names are the same
     return e1.getDatabaseKey().compareTo(e2.getDatabaseKey());

Graceful Shutdown

JVM has a shutdownHook Runtime.getRuntime.addShutdownHook(Thread) which allows us to register a shutdown hook. However, it doesn't work well with Windows. It responds to CTRL-C, but doesn't react when the process is killed (from task manager, or service console). In Linux/Unix it does work.

So an alternate is to add stop handling in JavaService, which run java class as NT service, and provides an adaptor layer .

licAgentService.exe -install "HiPath Wireless License Agent" %EMS_JAVA_HOME%\bin\client\jvm.dll
-Xms16m -Xmx64m
-Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:server=y,transport=dt_socket,address=8100,suspend=n
-start com.siemens.bk.lic.bootstrap.Main
-stop com.siemens.bk.lic.bootstrap.Main -method systemExit
-out .\logs\stdout.log
-err .\logs\stderr.log
-current %LICAGENT_HOME%
-depends "License Agent","HiPath Wireless RMI"

With the debug option, we can debug a service too.
In Windows Registry \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\, we can review all the option settings of the service.

My 1st Stored Procedure

Create/run store procedure in MySQL SQL Browser
-script->create function/procedure
-click 'execute' button to compile and store in db (proc table)
-type "call sp_ginger()" to run it, without ';"
-database browser->sp_ginger right click to edit

// the task is to diff value between adjcent records in stat table which contains
// up to 14M records remember in sp, assign statement need to "set statement"
// one minor thing is in query "... ttime desc" doesn't work (i.e., ignored)
// in sp, has to be "..s.ttime desc" though it is OK in query, strange thing
// is that ttime is not ambiguous in the statement.
// note that in ginger_watchdog, the timestamp type column will be automatically
// populated with current timestamp during insertion.
