            Why am I getting a BAD_ACCESS fault when calling draw functions on a CGContext used for an OpenGL texture?
            Asked 2020-Sep-11 at 21:39

            I am trying to create an OpenGL texture using Core Graphics. My code setup is in prepareOpenGL(). While drawing to the initialized CGContext, I get a EXC_BAD_ACCESS fault. However, when I po the context in LLDB (po context!, see below), I get an address with all of the CGContext's information. I have tried calling an expression through LLDB as well, and the output is nil. Address sanitizer, thread sanitizer, and zombies were non-revealing. My question is why is the CGContext being stated as nil, EXC_BAD_ACCESS, when the Optional is not nil? I have tried calling this code in drawRect(_:), but I get the same results.

            data: &bitmapBuffer is a pointer to the pointer to the buffer. Replace it with data: bitmapBuffer.

            How to prove to the management the futility of saving IDE specific files in GitHub
            Asked 2020-Jun-25 at 16:58

            I can not prove to the management the futility and even harm of saving IDE specific files and folders in GitHub

            There is even a problem in the deliberate mixing of two different issues:

            • I want to use Eclipse;
            • If we use Eclipse, then its files should be stored in the repository;

            I tried everything:

            • from "files not related to the project should not be there"
            • to "every developer knows how to configure their IDE for the project based on the pom.xml"
            • and "if two programmers use two different IDEs, should their files also be saved?"
            • and so on... like "specially designed gitignore.io provides recommended gitignore based on what you are using."

            What arguments can be given besides “no one does that for a long time because it's obvious”.

            PS. I am not going to start another holy war, I need arguments that are clear to the management.



            Answered 2020-Jun-25 at 16:53

            The rule is not do not share IDE-specific files, but as long as tool-specific files are maintained, they should be shared, even if they are not used by everyone.

            This applies to specific files of GitHub, Jenkins, FindBugs/SpotBugs, Eclipse and other tools. The presence of these files does not harm (files and folders starting with a dot meant to be hidden). This is well documented (e.g. here for Eclipse) and after all, the tools do not place these files in the project directory for no reason, although it would be possible otherwise, but because they are meant to be shared.

            However, there are still people who believe that there should be one Maven-specific pom.xml file only, which is focused on building only. But since none of them is a tool developer and none of them has never convinced the tool developers, it is very unlikely that you will convince your management.

            Also be aware that Eclipse-specific files are not specific to the Eclipse IDE, as they are also used by e.g. VS Code. Eclipse-specific are not even IDE-specific, since, for example, the Eclipse compiler for Java (ecj) can be used as a linter inside a build to run on a server.

            Trying to create a table and load data into same table using Databricks and SQL
            Asked 2019-Oct-09 at 13:24

            I Googled for a solution to create a table, using Databticks and Azure SQL Server, and load data into this same table. I found some sample code online, which seems pretty straightforward, but apparently there is an issue somewhere. Here is my code.

            my suggestion is to use the Azure SQL Spark library, as also mentioned in documentation:

            You want to do three things:

            EC2 Tomcat can’t connect to MySQL
            Asked 2019-Jul-06 at 04:46

            I’m working on an Amazon EC2 instance of Amazon Linux, having followed this tutorial precisely, but I can’t work out how to connect Tomcat to MySQL. How am I meant do do this?

            What I’ve tried

            I have traversed the directories within /usr/share/tomcat8 and, for each directory:

            1. placed the Connector/J file, mysql-connector-java-5.1.45-bin.jar, obtained from here, in the directory
            2. restarted Tomcat
            3. reloaded my index page, app/index.jsp
            4. got an error: javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Unable to get connection, DataSource invalid: "java.sql.SQLException: No suitable driver found for jdbc/foo" from line 8 of /index.jsp

            I have placed a copy of the Connector/J jar file among my other Java libraries and added it to my classpath, despite the obvious futility of this approach given how Tomcat handles its classpath.

            I have reduced my code about as much as I reasonably can in the hope that something else I’d done had produced this phenomenon as a side effect. Since less than fifty lines of code continue to produce the same error, that’s probably not the case, but technically I haven’t ruled it out.

            Try the following

            Option 1 : Place the file "mysql-connector-java-" inside your tomcat lib folder

            Option 2 : Place the file "mysql-connector-java-" inside the lib folder of your application "foo"

            Option 3 : Place the file "mysql-connector-java-" inside the java classpath.

            I am trying to draw random numbers until a certain number is found, but why isn't my for-loop counter working?
            Asked 2019-Apr-28 at 21:49

            I am completing an assignment for my Intro CS course. For this assignment, we must fix a javascript function so that it extracts values for variables, initializes a counter, and produces a loop that continues to increase in count until a certain number is found. My problem is that my version of the code does not seem to work.

            For the current version that I will detail below, I extracted the variables from each of the 'num' textboxes and began constructing the for-loop action, where in which the count will increase whenever a 4-digit number is produced that is not the values inside the extracted 'num' textboxes. I've tested this same code a few times, even with the 'count' variables inside of the condition statements changed to 'i' variables and nothing works.

            I am working with the random.js library--found here ( http://balance3e.com/random.js )--to randomize the looping 'picks'.

            I have also tried other loop versions, including the normal while-loop, and the do/while-loop.

            My professor has inadequately taught the material and appears "too busy" to help, so I apologize if some of the code is just flat-out wrong. I tried.



            Answered 2019-Apr-28 at 21:49

            The issue is that you are never getting out of your for loop, so your program just loops for ever.

            You should break out of your for loop when you find the correct match, something like this:

            Edit: Also, as @trognanders pointed out, you're incrementing counter twice: one time in your for loop declaration, and another time inside the if statement.

            Is there a workaround in JSON Parse and Stringify for Dates when a custom engine doesn't accept the norm
            Asked 2019-Feb-08 at 08:20

            Backstory I've been beating my head for a week trying to simply store and resume scheduling dates in JS. To save dates between sessions I need to use Stringify to offload a single string to be saved as a variable. I am programming JS in a custom engine (Barco's Medialon) that does not allow includes or standard I/O. So everything has to work in this one block of code with small things not being standard or needing workarounds.

            The problem This JSON stringify command stores date objects in a standard format "2019-03-05T09:20:00.000Z" This particular JSON parsing//new Date() command, however, can not interpret that string format and creates an error of "Invalid Date". Other formats do work though, IE when I invoke a new Date(Epoch Time) or new Date(YYYY,MM,DD,hh,mm)

            The Quest I am trying to modify the stringify/parse sections to work around this issue though I am struggling. While I have a small handle on the 'JSON.parse' and regex bit, Trying to manipulate the detection of Date Object and changing how it encodes is a quest in futility thus far.
