Building Distributed Applications over HTTP
Internet Applications with VFP Chapter 07.pdf
Sample Chapter 7 of Internet Applications with VFP: HTTP is much more than just a protocol used by the Web browser for transmitting HTML. In this chapter I'll show you how to use HTTP generically from a Visual FoxPro client application to execute logic on a Web server that is also running Visual FoxPro. You'll see how to retrieve content and data over HTTP, fire logic on the server and handle bidirectional transfer of data using familiar SQL commands over HTTP. This approach allows you to build rich GUI applications that take advantage of the distributed nature of the Internet without having to conform to a limited HTML interface. Using the techniques described here, you can extend the reach of existing applications across the Internet with minimal amounts of code—using all native Visual FoxPro code.

Example Chapter 05 from 1001 Things You Wanted to Know about VFP: Combos and lists are two very powerful controls that allow the user to select from a predetermined set of values. Used properly, they provide a valuable means of ensuring data validity. Used improperly, they can be your worst nightmare. If you use a combo box to present the user with thousands of items, you are asking for trouble! In this chapter, we present some handy combo and lists classes that can be used to provide a polished, professional interface while significantly reducing your development time.

Configuring Your Desktop
06_LTPU05.pdf
So you’ve installed Fedora Core, you’ve logged in, and you’re facing a GUI desktop. What next? You’ve got two choices. Either leave it alone and just learn how to use what’s in front of you, or customize it—make it bend to your will. Hey, I know! Let’s do both! In this chapter, I’ll explain how to use the desktop “out of the box,” and then I’ll show you how to customize it by showing you how I customize my own desktop.

Creating and Managing COM Components
Visual FoxPro Certification Exam Study Guide Chapter 06.pdf
Sample Chapter 6 of Visual FoxPro Certification Exam Study Guide: Microsoft’s Component Object Model (COM) is one of those technologies that simply makes sense. It is a natural fit for object-oriented development and n-tier design. COM allows you to make your VFP objects available to other software and programming environments, thus making a flexible technology for business components in the middle tier. We will show how to build COM components, the different types of COM components available, how to register them, and how to manage them with the Component Gallery. As well, we will touch on error-handling issues with COM and special considerations when using COM and Microsoft Transaction Server.

Sample Chapter 6 of MegaFox 1002 Things You Wanted to Know About Extending Visual FoxPro: It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. This is especially true when analyzing trends in financial applications. Viewing the data in a graphical format is usually more meaningful than merely reviewing a bunch of numbers in a spreadsheet. In this chapter, we will explore several mechanisms by which we can generate graphs to be displayed on forms or printed in reports. (Note: Creating graphs for display in web pages can be accomplished using the Office Web Components. This is covered in Chapter 16: VFP on the Web).

Customizing Your Development Environment
Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation Chapter 16.pdf
Sample Chapter 15 of Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation: It never ceases to amaze me to walk into a development shop and see how the developers work. The most mind-numbing experience is to watch a developer start up Visual FoxPro, and then issue three or four attempts of the “CD <current app dev directory>” command as his first step—because VFP’s default location is still set somewhere deep in the bowels of Program Files. Think of all the time you spend building applications to make other people more productive. Doesn’t it make sense to tune your own work environment? In this chapter, I’ll show you a number of techniques that you can use to make your daily work easier and more bug-proof.

Developing a Logical Data Model
Visual FoxPro Certification Exam Study Guide Chapter 02.pdf
Sample Chapter 2 of Visual FoxPro Certification Exam Study Guide: Data is the heart of our Visual FoxPro applications. Getting data safely stored and updated in our databases is our “bread and butter.” Crucial to doing this is good design for our data model. We need to understand the difference between the logical data model, discussed here, and the physical data model, discussed in Chapter 8, “Creating a Physical Database,” as we move through this design process. Without good design, we’ll always be fighting the awkwardness and integrity problems to which poor design gives rise.

Rather, he said, “Eventually, you want to get attacked.” In a similar vein, while the goal of marketing is initially to get phone calls, ultimately, it’s to make a sales call. More so than the phone call, an in-person visit is your best chance to set expectations while at the same time determining whether you want the job. This chapter covers the in-person sales call in detail.

Hackers Guide 6.0: DBF, FPT, CDX, DBC - Hike!
HackFox6 S1C2.doc
The transition from the FoxPro 2.x model of the universe to the Visual FoxPro mindset was pretty revolutionary on a lot of fronts. While we cringe to use the hackneyed and overused term, the introduction of databases in Visual FoxPro was a major paradigm shift and one that took some getting used to. The introduction of the database container, local and remote views, vast improvements in client-server connectivity, and a slew of new data types, commands, and functions was mind-boggling. We'll try to give you an overview of the data changes here, and refer you to areas where you can get more information throughout the book.

However, the speed gain has never been automatic. You have to do things right to make your code "run like the Fox."

Installing Fedora Core Linux
installation_fedoracore.pdf
In mid 2003, Red Hat spun off their mainstream Red Hat distribution into a true Open Source project called "Fedora Core". FC, as it's known, differs from Red Hat Linux in a couple of specific ways ­first, you can only get it by downloading ISOs (or getting them from a friend), and second, it'll be updated on a regular basis, but strictly through Open Source means. Some have taken these changes to mean that FC will be unstable or otherwise unworthy of attention anymore, and thus have been reluctant to give it a try. That's not really fair ­most people think that FC is on a par with where "Red Hat 10" would have been at this time. Some people may not be convinced, so to give those doubting Thomas's in the audience a preview of what FC looks like, I use a liberal number of screen shots as well as detailed supporting explanations to show you how to install Fedora Core from scratch for desktop usage.

Installing MySQL from RPMs
mysql_installation.pdf
Installing MySQL on Linux is a reasonably straightforward procedure, and the documentation is excellent - organized, detailed, and with a lot of examples. However, there are still a lot of variations that you can encounter, and, as with any documentation team, there are still places where they have to assume a minimal level of knowledge, and if you're missing that knowledge, the procedure can still be difficult. The purpose of this document is to provide a supplement to the online documentation, with a detailed description of how to install MySQL from RPMs onto a Linux machine from the perspective of an experienced Windows programmer who is relatively new to Linux, and to provide background and perspective behind the steps.

Sample Chapter 2 of Internet Applications with VFP: The first thing that you'll notice when starting to build Web applications is new terminology. Building Internet applications is more involved than building stand-alone applications because you have to deal with multiple environments simultaneously. With this additional complexity comes terminology. The bad news is that you have to become familiar with lots of three- and four-letter acronyms; the good news is that most of these technologies are easy to work with once you have a broad view of how they fit together. This chapter provides this broad overview. It talks about the technologies and information flow for distributed and Web applications, and discusses a number of the terms you need to know.

Hewlett Packard's JetDirect print server allows you to make a printer available to an entire network simply by plugging an Ethernet cable into the JetDirect device which then connects to the printer. All that's left is a little configuration. Or so the marketing literature says. It's a little more complicated than that in the real world, where you have to know all of the steps, and follow them in order. That said, once the entire process is laid out line by line, hooking up a JetDirect print server is fairly straightforward.

The Top Ten Command Window Tips
toptencwtips.pdf
Power users can go a long way just using the graphical user interface (GUI) running on top of Linux. You can use the GUI for just about everything, from making changes to the system configuration to launching programs. However, the GUI is a fairly recent addition to the Linux world. Many hard-core and experienced users never use the GUI, and there are uses for Linux for which a GUI would be out of place. This GUI-less world sports an interface that can be entered by using a tool similar to the Windows command window or DOS prompt. In this whitepaper, I will discuss how to get under the hood by using the Linux command window.

Three-Tiered Development
Advanced Object Oriented Programming with VFP Chapter 09.pdf
Sample Chapter 09 Advanced Object Oriented Programming with VFP: Lately there's been a lot of hype about three-tiered development. The main idea is to split applications into different layers—the interface, the business logic and the data back end. Many people tout three-tiered development as the best thing since sliced bread. While it can't cure world hunger, it definitely helps me a great deal in my development efforts.

Using SourceSafe to Maintain a SourceSafe Database
sourcesafe_maintainsourcesafe.pdf
Microsoft Visual SourceSafe is a version control system used for storing source code, text files, web content or any other type or document where ownership, tracking and revision history is important. However, the Visual SourceSafe (VSS) database must have regular maintenance performed to ensure that it is kept in good shape and does not encounter corruption. Like remembering to get the oil changed or scheduling that appointment with the dentist, it is really easy to let maintenance slide. And like other maintenance chores, there can be serious consequences to neglect. This article shows how, with a little work up front, an administrator can automate the routine maintenance, keep an eye on what's going on, and be alerted to database problems. One of the real hassles with using SourceSafe's Analyze utility is interpreting the results intelligently. The method shown here minimizes the noise, so administrators can see right through to any changes they might need to be concerned with.

Using VFP’s Object-Oriented Tools
Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation Chapter 10.pdf
Sample Chapter 10 Fundamentals Building Visual Studio Apps on a VFP Foundation: Next to SQL, the most wonderful feature of Visual FoxPro is its implementation of object-oriented programming. To skip this chapter would be one of the biggest mistakes of your programming life. In this chapter I’m going to show you what object-oriented programming is, with examples that will make sense to you, a database programmer; how VFP’s object-oriented tools work; and how to incorporate them into the forms that you’ve already learned how to build. Finally, I’ll set you up with your own set of baseclasses that you can use to start building real-world applications—today.

Using VMWare to Capture Linux Installation Screen Shots
installation_vmwarescreenshots.pdf
How do you capture screen shots of an operating system installation? There are a couple of ways. One is to take digital photographs of the screen. Blech. Another way is to install a piece of software called VMWare on an existing OS. Then, use VMWare to create a shell in which the OS in question can be installed ­and then use the screen capture facilities of the existing OS to grab the screens of the OS being installed. Here's a detailed explanation of how this works.

WebConnect: How a Web Page Works
WebRAD Building Database Apps on the Web with Web Connection Chapter 09.pdf
Sample Chapter 9 of WebRAD Building Database Apps on the Web with Web Connection: The language used on a Web page is HyperText Markup Language, or HTML. Hypertext is the part of the Web that allows for the linking together of Web content through the use of clickable “hyperlinks.” The markup language defines the document form. Remember back in grade school getting an essay back, “marked up” with symbols stating that an item should be capitalized, or a new paragraph should begin here? Well, that is pretty much what HTML does for a Web page. In this chapter I will cover what makes up a well formed Web page, what the different sections are, how to use JavaScript for form validations, and how Web Connection can process a page that contains embedded expressions.

An installfest is a special type of LUG meeting where people bring computers to the meeting and get help installing, updating, or tweaking their Linux installation. However, this is sort of a superficial explanation. While on the surface it appears to just be an event where experienced Linux users help newer folks get Linux running, underneath an Installfest is a community building event.

When X Dies: How to Kill and Restart X Windows

A GUI is a complex piece of software; combined with the event driven capabilities, you may run into the situation where your GUI locks up on you. Unlike Windows, the Linux GUI isn't tightly bound into the underlying OS; instead, it's a set of separate programs running on top of the OS. As a result, however, you're not forced to restart your machine due to problems with the GUI itself. This whitepaper discusses the options you've got available to you to recover a failed X Windows session.

Similarly, developers can be divided into two camps—those who wonder what happened to the Visual FoxPro Setup Wizard, and those who don't.

My name is Whil Hentzen. I've been developing custom database applications since the early IBM PC days, starting with dBASE II. I delighted in the capabilties that a relational desktop database program could provide, delighted further when dBASE III+ fixed all the bugs in dBASE III, and agonized during the introduction of dBASE IV, its 28 lbs of documentation, and more performance problems than the Chevy Corvair and the Ford Edsel combined.

Because you let them, that's why. No, I'm not being a smart aleck. Someone recently suggested that every software manufacturer hold off on adding any new features to the next release of each product they produce, and simply spend the year fixing bugs. Novel idea, eh? Why do they continue to release version after version of software with new features - and the same bugs as the release from last time? Because we let them.
