Android React native app

Have played around react native, and published an android app earlier.

some thoughts:

  1. navigator

    this would normally be the entry point, which define the landing page, and how routing to different pages works.


<Navigator
    initialRoute={{ title: 'Tap Scene', id: 'default' }}
    renderScene={this.navigatorRenderScene}
/>

 

Scene

2. For each scene, its a Component, where the life cycle of constructor, componentDidMount, componentUnmount, can be used to trigger specific actions. on each scene, you can use JSX to create the page/view, which could link to functions, like normal js binding:

onActionSelected
onIconClicked
handleClick() {
    if(!this.state.favnumber)
        LocalToastAndroid.show('Please set up your favorite number first', LocalToastAndroid.SHORT);
    else
        LocalToastAndroid.call(this.state.favnumber);
};

Additional actions

3. native react native modules wont cover all functions you request, to create custom module, you can register additional

ReactContextBaseJavaModule

then exposing the method to JS

@ReactMethod
public void call(String number){
.....
}
module.exports = NativeModules.CustomizedModule;

here is the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.best2lwjj

AI for system support

Have tried to build an AI bot since almost 3 years back, finally did a prototype, in case anybody would like to do something similar:

Technologies:

Java, Spring Boot, Spring, SQLlite, PostGre, Scala, Python, Anaconda, Scikit Learn,  EWS, BootStrap, AngularJS/JQuery/HTML/CSS, Symphony API, Cisco API,

Components:

Data Set

  1. I have built a scala web crawler, to download all historical support issues.
  2. at the same time, have manually cleaned up/read through each of the thousand of support issues, put in corresponding resolutions corresponding to each
AI
  1. have leveraged on anaconda & scikit learn, to NLP, to tokenize each support issue (text), remove stop words, stemmed each, remove punctuations
  2. have leveraged on anaconda & scikit learn, bag each token of the text as feature vs class, to feed into linear regression classifier, tried SLDA, so far working at 72% accuracy
AI Exposer
  1. have exposed AI as a service
Issue Feeder
  1. have leveraged EWS to read in all issues, post to AI service
UI
  1. have built a web user interface, on top of HTML5 + JQuery + Bootstrap, to show the support emails + AI responded resolutions
  2. have a option on UI, to provide user feedback to AI, to keep its intelligence updated
Notifier
  1. leverage on Java Mail API, EWS, Chat API, phone API, to post alerts for critical issues

aspect not working as aspectOf factory method not found

for my case, the reason being, the aspect is not waved at compile time.

it works well in Eclipse/IDE, as there is plugsin, aspectJRuntime plugin. however, when i build the war; my ant didnt call aspectjtools to weave compile the aspect.

Spring AOP

the project I am currently working on, has used Spring AOPs, for service auditing purposes.

here is the very detailed explanation on this topic, http://static.springsource.org/spring/docs/2.5.x/reference/aop.html. however, it’s too much detailed, just quickly go through and pick up the important points.

some points to note are,
1. Spring AOP support both schema-based, and aspectJ-based AOP
2. the former is by configurations purely in schema, as defining the aspect, join-point and advice, using XML.
3. the latter, AspectJ-based, is using AspectJ annotations., plus just enable aspectj-autoproxing in schema
4. to Note, choose either or, not both. which is the current situation my project having now, redundant

AOP + OOP, quite good pattern
