RoboCup - echipa OXSY din Sibiu - 6 ani de participari |

Intre 14-20 iulie se desfasoara in China editia cu numarul 12 a competitiei Robocup si Sebi cu echipa Oxsy (www.oxsy.ro/blog) participa pentru a 6-a oara consecutiv la concurs.

RoboCup este un proiect international in domeniul roboticii si al calculatoarelor ce are ca scop promovarea sistemelor de inteligenta artificiala in intreaga lume. RoboCup a ales jocul de fotbal ca subiect de cercetare. Ideea de baza a acestui efort conjugat e de a dezvolta sisteme computerizate capabile sa presteze diferite sarcini specifice oamenilor. In cadrul acestei competitii se incearca simularea unui joc de fotbal, scopul final declarat fiind dezvoltarea unei echipe de roboti humanoizi autonomi, care sa castige pana in anul 2050, un meci desfasurat dupa regulile FIFA cu recenta campioana mondiala la fotbal

Fiecare an an insemnat o pozitionare mai buna, anul trecut echipa terminind pe pozitia a 5-a.
In marea majoritate echipele participante sunt echipe ale unor universitati renumite din lume cu bugete destul de substantiale.
Imi amintesc de prima participare echipei in Padova (2003), atunci am participat si eu ca “asistent moral/ de logistica”, a fost o experienta interesanta si partial frustranta.

Sa incepem cu partea pozitiva: tineri din intrega lume, majoritatea studenti, entuziasti, gata sa sacrifice orice pentru a avea o participare cat mai reprezentativa. De asemenea o multime de roboti jucand fotbal sau simulind actiuni de salvare in cazul unor dezastre.
A fost unul dintre momentele in care am fost mandru de unde vin si nu m-am mai gandit nici un moment la faima “negativa” pe care o avem. De fapt eu sunt mandru tot timpul de originea mea ;) , dar atunci a fost o chestie de genul: “uita ca vedeti/auziti si ceva pozitiv de Romania.”

Partea negativa a fost datorata bugetului limitat, buget care era format din propriile economii. De fapt marea noastra problema atunci a fost lipsa unui notebook pe care sa putem modifica strategia de joc a “baietiilor” (”baiat” = software care ruleaza independent si comunica cu ceilalti jucatori din echipa).

Intre timp in ultimii ani lucruriile sau mai indreptat, doar au trecut atatia ani de atunci :) .

Ceea vreau sa mai adaug, este ca tot acest proiect implica un efort si devotament foarte mare, ceea ce ma face sa-l felicit pe Sebi ca a reusit timp de atatia ani sa-si continue pasiunea. Probabil anul acesta o sa castige locul 1 si atunci se va retrage din competie ca si invingator :) .

Lotus Script Syntax Highlighting Tools |

1. Highlight - The first tool is really powerful and can be used beside Lotus Script also for other 100 programming languages. It allows output to HTML/XHTML, RTF, XML, LaTeX and TeX and 40 syntax color themes. In addition it has plug-ins for Notepad++ and for Total Commander.

Highlight

2. Julian Robichaux’s ls2html tool. It’s written in Lotus Script and has as output an HTML file. If you are not happy with the default CSS styles you can define yourself one.

3. Daniel Eriksson’s Highlight (prompt command ) tool . Daniel’s tool can be used too for Lotus Script and other languages. I did not used it until now, but I found it today by chance.

Lotus Notes 8 Programmability [IBM article] |

Lotus Notes 8 Programmability

To understand the Notes 8 programmability story, you must first understand the new technology that has been introduced with Lotus Notes 8. The Lotus Notes 8 client takes all the code that is the existing Lotus Notes and puts it in the Eclipse environment. This puts Lotus Notes on an open-source, Java™-based platform.

XALAN and Relative Paths |

If you just started using XALAN probably the first issue that you encountered is the fact the relative paths, for the imported XSL files, are not working.
For the relatives path to work, in a XALAN transformation, you will need to set the system identifier (systemID).
The system identifier is nothing else but an URI to the source file, and is set using the StreamSource.setSystemId(String systemID) method.
Following is a simple example that shows how to to set the property for a XSL StreamSource.



import java.io.*;
import javax.xml.transform.*;
import javax.xml.transform.stream.*;

public class RelativePathExample {

    public static void main(String[] argsthrows Exception {
        final String BASE_PATH = "C:\\Temp\\";

        String xslPathURI = (new File(BASE_PATH + "article.xsl")).toURL()
                .toString();
        StreamSource xslSource = new StreamSource(xslPathURI);
        // this line will be used to solve the URIs encountered in XSL file, 
        // respectively the relative paths of the imported XSL files
        // xslPathURI = "file:/C:/Temp/article.xsl"
        xslSource.setSystemId(xslPathURI);

        String xmlPathURI = (new File(BASE_PATH + "article.xml")).toURL()
                .toString();
        StreamSource xmlSource = new StreamSource(xmlPathURI);

        TransformerFactory tFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
        Transformer transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(xslSource);

        StreamResult result = new StreamResult(new FileOutputStream(BASE_PATH
                "article.html"));
        transformer.transform(xmlSource, result);

    }
}
