The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is one of the most important languages for anyone in the software industry to know. The UML is a visual language enabling architects, designers, and developers to communicate about design. Seemingly simple on the surface, the UML is a rich and expressive language, with many visual syntactical elements. It's next to impossible to memorize all aspects of the UML. Just as a writer might require a dictionary to work with the spoken word, so too do UML practitioners require a dictionary of sorts. In this book, you'll find information on UML usage, and also on the symbols, line-endings, and syntax used for the following diagram types: Class diagrams Component diagrams Behavioral diagrams Sequence diagrams Statechart diagrams Object diagrams Deployment diagrams Use case diagrams Collaboration diagrams Activity diagrams Let this book be your UML dictionary. It's clear, concise, and small. Keep this book at hand, and never again be stymied by an unfamiliar UML symbol, a line-ending you don't recognize, or the use of an unfamiliar diagram type. O'Reilly's Pocket References have become a favorite among programmers everywhere. By providing a wealth of important details in a concise, well-organized format, these handy books deliver just what you need to complete the task at hand. When you need to get to a solution quickly, the new UML Pocket Reference is the book you'll want to have.
Effective awk Programming,3rd Edition, focuses entirely on awk, exploring it in the greatest depth of the three awk titles we carry. It's an excellent companion piece to the more broadly focused second edition. This book provides complete coverage of the gawk 3.1 language as well as the most up-to-date coverage of the POSIX standard for awk available anywhere. Author Arnold Robbins clearly distinguishes standard awk features from GNU awk (gawk)-specific features, shines light into many of the "dark corners" of the language (areas to watch out for when programming), and devotes two full chapters to example programs. A brand new chapter is devoted to TCP/IP networking with gawk. He includes a summary of how the awk language evolved. The book also covers: Internationalization of gawk Interfacing to i18n at the awk level Two-way pipes TCP/IP networking via the two-way pipe interface The new PROCINFO array, which provides information about running gawk Profiling and pretty-printing awk programs In addition to covering the awk language, this book serves as the official "User's Guide" for the GNU implementation of awk (gawk), describing in an integrated fashion the extensions available to the System V Release 4 version of awk that are also available in gawk. As the official gawk User's Guide, this book will also be available electronically, and can be freely copied and distributed under the terms of the Free Software Foundation's Free Documentation License (FDL). A portion of the proceeds from sales of this book will go to the Free Software Foundation to support further development of free and open source software. The third edition of Effective awk Programming is a GNU Manual and is published by O'Reilly & Associates under the Free Software Foundation's Free Documentation License (FDL). A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book is donated to the Free Software Foundation to further development of GNU software. This book is also available in electronic form; you have the freedom to modify this GNU Manual, like GNU software. Copies published by the Free Software Foundation raise funds for GNU development.

“As an author, editor, and publisher, I never paid much attention to the competition–except in a few cases. This is one of those cases. The UNIX System Administration Handbook is one of the few books we ever measured ourselves against.” –From the Foreword by Tim O’Reilly, founder of O’Reilly Media “This book is fun and functional as a desktop reference. If you use UNIX and Linux systems, you need this book in your short-reach library. It covers a bit of the systems’ history but doesn’t bloviate. It’s just straightfoward information delivered in colorful and memorable fashion.” –Jason A. Nunnelley “This is a comprehensive guide to the care and feeding of UNIX and Linux systems. The authors present the facts along with seasoned advice and real-world examples. Their perspective on the variations among systems is valuable for anyone who runs a heterogeneous computing facility.” –Pat Parseghian The twentieth anniversary edition of the world’s best-selling UNIX system administration book has been made even better by adding coverage of the leading Linux distributions: Ubuntu, openSUSE, and RHEL. This book approaches system administration in a practical way and is an invaluable reference for both new administrators and experienced professionals. It details best practices for every facet of system administration, including storage management, network design and administration, email, web hosting, scripting, software configuration management, performance analysis, Windows interoperability, virtualization, DNS, security, management of IT service organizations, and much more.

Ajax can bring many advantages to an existing web application without forcing you to redo the whole thing. This book explains how you can add Ajax to enhance, rather than replace, the way your application works. For instance, if you have a traditional web application based on submitting a form to update a table, you can enhance it by adding the capability to update the table with changes to the form fields, without actually having to submit the form. That's just one example. Adding Ajax is for those of you more interested in extending existing applications than in creating Rich Internet Applications (RIA). You already know the "business-side" of applications-web forms, server-side driven pages, and static content-and now you want to make your web pages livelier, more fun, and much more interactive. This book: Provides an overview of Ajax technologies, and the importance of developing a strategy for changing your site before you sit down to code Explains the heart and soul of Ajax: how to work with the XMLHttpRequest object Introduces and demonstrates several important Ajax libraries, including Prototype, script.aculo.us, rico, Mochikit Explores the interactive element that is Ajax, including how to work with events and event handlers that work across browsers Introduces the concept of web page as space, and covers three popular approaches to managing web space Explains how to make data updates, including adding new data, deleting, and making updates, all from within a single page Describes the effects Ajax has on the Web-breaking the back button, losing browser history, dynamic effects that disappear when the page is refreshed, and more Covers advanced CSS effects, including drag and drop "scroll bars", pagination, and the use of SVG and the Canvas object Explores mashups-Ajax's ability to combine data from different web services in any number of ways, directly in our web pages You don't need to start over to use Ajax. You can simply add to what you already have. This book explains how.
To-the-point, authoritative, no-nonsense solutions have always been a trademark of O'Reilly books. The In a Nutshell books have earned a solid reputation in the field as the well-thumbed references that sit beside the knowledgeable developer's keyboard. C++ in a Nutshell lives up to the In a Nutshell promise. C++ in a Nutshell is a lean, focused reference that offers practical examples for the most important, most often used, aspects of C++. C++ in a Nutshell packs an enormous amount of information on C++ (and the many libraries used with it) in an indispensable quick reference for those who live in a deadline-driven world and need the facts but not the frills. The book's language reference is organized first by topic, followed by an alphabetical reference to the language's keywords, complete with syntax summaries and pointers to the topic references. The library reference is organized by header file, and each library chapter and class declaration presents the classes and types in alphabetical order, for easy lookup. Cross-references link related methods, classes, and other key features. This is an ideal resource for students as well as professional programmers. When you're programming, you need answers to questions about language syntax or parameters required by library routines quickly. What, for example, is the C++ syntax to define an alias for a namespace? Just how do you create and use an iterator to work with the contents of a standard library container? C++ in a Nutshell is a concise desktop reference that answers these questions, putting the full power of this flexible, adaptable (but somewhat difficult to master) language at every C++ programmer's fingertips.
