Advanced Qt Programming: Creating Great Software with C++ by Mark Summerfield

By Mark Summerfield

Master Qt's strongest APIs, styles, and improvement Practices

Qt has advanced right into a remarkably robust resolution for cross-platform laptop, net, and cellular improvement. even if, even the main skilled Qt programmers purely use a fragment of its functions. furthermore, useful information regarding Qt's latest positive factors has been scarce—until now.

Advanced Qt Programming indicates builders precisely the right way to take complete good thing about Qt 4.5's and Qt 4.6's most precious new APIs, software styles, and improvement practices. Authored via Qt professional Mark Summerfield, this e-book concentrates on ideas that provide the main strength and suppleness with the least additional complexity.

Summerfield focuses particularly on model/view and graphics/view programming, hybrid desktop/Web purposes, threading, and purposes incorporating media and wealthy textual content. all through, he provides sensible, downloadable code examples, all confirmed on home windows, Mac OS X, and Linux utilizing Qt 4.6 (and so much confirmed on Qt 4.5) and designed to expect destiny types of Qt. The book

Walks via utilizing Qt with WebKit to create cutting edge hybrid desktop/Internet applications

Shows how one can use the Phonon framework to construct strong multimedia applications

Presents state of the art options for utilizing model/view desk and tree types, QStandardItemModels, delegates, and perspectives, and for growing customized desk and tree versions, delegates, and views

Explains how you can write greater threaded courses with the QtConcurrent module and with the QThread class

Includes targeted insurance of constructing wealthy textual content editors and documents

Thoroughly covers graphics/view programming: structure, home windows, widgets, layouts, scenes, and more

Introduces Qt 4.6's strong animation and nation computer frameworks

Ruby Under a Microscope: An Illustrated Guide to Ruby Internals

Ruby is a strong programming language with a spotlight on simplicity, yet underneath its dependent syntax it plays numerous unseen tasks.

Ruby below a Microscope can provide a hands-on examine Ruby's center, utilizing vast diagrams and thorough reasons to teach you ways Ruby is applied (no C talents required). writer Pat Shaughnessy takes a systematic process, laying out a chain of experiments with Ruby code to take you behind the curtain of the way programming languages paintings. You'll even locate info on JRuby and Rubinius (two substitute implementations of Ruby), in addition to in-depth explorations of Ruby's rubbish assortment algorithm.

Ruby lower than a Microscope will educate you:

How a number of machine technology innovations underpin Ruby's complicated implementation
How Ruby executes your code utilizing a digital machine
How periods and modules are an identical within Ruby
How Ruby employs algorithms initially constructed for Lisp
How Ruby makes use of grammar ideas to parse and comprehend your code
How your Ruby code is translated right into a varied language via a compiler
No programming language should be a black field. no matter if you're already intrigued through language implementation or simply are looking to dig deeper into Ruby, you'll locate Ruby less than a Microscope a desirable method to turn into a greater programmer.

Genetic Programming Theory and Practice IX

Those contributions, written by means of the major overseas researchers and practitioners of Genetic Programming (GP), discover the synergy among theoretical and empirical effects on real-world difficulties, generating a complete view of the cutting-edge in GP. themes contain: modularity and scalability; evolvability; human-competitive effects; the necessity for vital high-impact GP-solvable problems;; the dangers of seek stagnation and of removing paths to recommendations; the necessity for novelty; empowering GP seek with specialist wisdom; additionally, GP symbolic regression is punctiliously mentioned, addressing such themes as assured reproducibility of SR; validating SR effects, measuring and controlling genotypic complexity; controlling phenotypic complexity; choosing, tracking, and averting over-fitting; discovering a finished number of SR benchmarks, evaluating SR to laptop studying.

Sample text

In line 12, we look up the distinguished name of the entry that has a certain email address using the search( ) method and our filter. When we have found an entry, we try to connect to the LDAP server again using the password belonging to the entry we have just found. If this works, everything is fine, and the user can be authenticated. ' end With only thirty lines of client code, we have implemented a complete LDAP authentication mechanism that can be used with a single line of code. To make this authentication system as secure as possible, we should use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol or its successor, Transport Layer Security (TLS).

It will also consume twice as much processing time if you encrypt your message with the recipient’s public key, too. A much better solution would be not to use the whole message as a signature but only a digest (or fingerprint). In this case, the plaintext would be encrypted only once, and the signature would be very small. sign(digest, plaintext) The message is encrypted with Bob’s public key, and in line 4, a signature is created by calling the private key’s sign( ) method. sign( ) expects two things: the digest to be used (SHA1 in our case) and the plaintext to create a signature for.

Otherwise, we call failed_login( ) and redirect to the login page after setting an error message. Com 8. 4: Authenticate the test application at myOpenID. That’s it! With a few lines of code, our application supports two convenient and secure authentication mechanisms. There’s really no excuse for not offering both of them. Com Recipe 9 Authenticate with LDAP Problem A lot of companies use the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) for storing user account information, and in this recipe you’ll learn how to access a LDAP repository from your Rails application to authenticate user information.
