Infinispan listener event owner

It took me a while to find this, it exists from version 5.3 of infinispan.

I have a cluster and i want that only the instance which got that event and insert it into the cache will handle - in my case, save it to the db. Other replicated instances caches listeners won't work because in this particular event they aren't the owners .

You just need to annotate this above your listener : @Listener(primaryOnly = true)

org.hsqldb.HsqlException: data exception: string data, right truncation; table


I had this exception while testing (junit) my code.

It seems that when you use  Lob annotation and use HsqlDB, the default column size is probably less than the actual size you are trying to insert. In my case i annotated String with Lob (hibernate knows it should be clob) while my string length was huge -> got this exception.

To fix this, add hibernate column annotation with column length bigger like 15000 , this will solve it  (for example of course).

fedora 19 alacarte doesn't add icons to new applications

After wondering for a while,

I have found that you need to go to ~/.local/share/applications
edit each alacarte desktop file and fill manually the icon location and extension. 
Worked for me.

dpkg: error: parsing file '/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 9941 package 'libcloog-isl4:amd64'

After wasting let's say one hour, this solved it for me :
'sudo mv /var/lib/dpkg/status-old /var/lib/dpkg/status'

Set up gradle to build with alternative java

I am using ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Having java 7 and 8 installed from oracle.

Using alternative and working with java 7 but one of my projects use java 8.

gradle build --version

returns that it works with java 7 -> since most of my projects use this version, i don't want to change this.

Solution: creating in the java 8 project, in the root directory, file named

inside it for example in my case :

this way, when you will do gradle build in this project, gradle will use this version instead of the one defined for him.
