JDownloader: hotfile, rapidshare best downloader

I was used Free download manager to download my favorite TV series (e.g. IT Crowd or new interesting BBC's Sherlock) from well know data storages, like rapidshare or hotfile. I've tried JDownloader and I'm really impressed all those features which the tools provides in comparison with standard lightweight managers.


Interesting features
  • you can only copy links to download into the clipboard at your favorite forum, switch the focus back to JDownloader, it automatically use these links as datasource, add them into link grabber and than check their online status (if they are downloadable)! You can see their availability in a few seconds
  • support the usage of huge amount of paid accounts. You simply add your credentials into system, add links and it works - download files - you need obviously possess these accounts :-) 
  • build in extract support - if you add links to the data spread into more rars, the JDownloader's plugin can unrar them after successful download and even delete them when unrar is finally done
  • using pair and free account together - assume that you add two simultaneous downloads and trying to download another file placed on the same storage. JDownloader tries to use free account, wait until the captcha succeeded and download the last one via free account
  • JDownloader also creates container and directory wrapping each download so all files are not downloaded into one directory but spreads into new one according to the downloanded file names
  • great plugin support, automatic computer shutdown is supported too. JDownloader can be also up-dated by fine online updater, it simply download all new system parts or plugins
Downsides? Are you still waiting even with paid account?

I was about to uninstall JDownloader because it always waits even if I correctly set up the pair rapidshare account! What happen? Although I inserted credentials, I didn't enable this account globally for the whole application so JDownloader tries to download all files through free account. Rear. Described global switch is that small check button at the left down application corner.

Performance Battle of NoSQL blob storages #1: Cassandra

Preface We spend last five years on HP Service Virtualization using MsSQL database . Non-clustered server. Our app utilizes this system for all kinds of persistence. No polyglot so far. As we tuned the performance of the response time - we started at 700ms/call and we achieved couple milliseconds per call at the end when DB involved - we had to learn a lot of stuff. Transactions, lock escalation , isolation levels , clustered and non clustered indexes, buffered reading, index structure and it's persistence, GUID ids in clustered indexes , bulk importing , omit slow joins, sparse indexes, and so on. We also rewrite part of NHibernate to support multiple tables for one entity type which allows use scaling up without lock escalation. It was good time. The end also showed us that famous Oracle has half of our favorite features once we decided to support this database. Well, as I'm thinking about all issues which we encountered during the development, unpredictive behavio

NHibernate performance issues #3: slow inserts (stateless session)

The whole series of NHibernate performance issues isn't about simple use-cases. If you develop small app, such as simple website, you don't need to care about performance. But if you design and develop huge application and once you have decided to use NHibernate you'll solve various sort of issue. For today the use-case is obvious: how to insert many entities into the database as fast as possible? Why I'm taking about previous stuff? The are a lot of articles how the original NHibernate's purpose isn't to support batch operations , like inserts. Once you have decided to NHibernate, you have to solve this issue. Slow insertion The basic way how to insert mapped entity into database is: SessionFactory.GetCurrentSession().Save(object); But what happen when I try to insert many entities? Lets say, I want to persist 1000 libraries each library has 100 books = 100k of books each book has 5 rentals - there are 500k of rentals  It's really slow! The inser

Jenkins + git revision in all build names

Jenkins by default assigns version of a build using local counter within each type of a build. An example is better. When you look at this overview, you definitely do not know which code revision was used in Compile build and which in Integration Tests . I've followed nice article regarding real CI pipeline using jenkin s. It uses Build Name Setter Plugin. Unfortunately this article uses SVN revision number. So I said I'll just use git revision as git is my source control. But it's not so easy as how it could seem for first look. My Jenkins setup comprised of first compile build step which clones git server and performs an compilation. Second build steps clones the repository from first step and executes integration tests . The problem here is that the second step does not know which git revision compile step cloned. Here is list of steps how to do that. 1. You obviously need Git Plugin , Build Name Setter Plugin and Parameterized Trigger Plugin 2. Compile
