In computer programming, an application programming interface (API) specifies how some software components should interact with each other. Detailed explanation[edit] API in procedural languages[edit] In most procedural languages, an API specifies a set of functions or routines that accomplish a specific task or are allowed to interact with a specific software component. This specification is presented in a human readable format in paper books, or in electronic formats like ebooks or as man pages. For example, the math API on Unix systems is a specification on how to use the mathematical functions included in the math library. The Unix command man 3 sqrt presents the signature of the function sqrt in the form: SYNOPSIS #include <math.h> double sqrt(double X); float sqrtf(float X); DESCRIPTION sqrt computes the positive square root of the argument. ... $ perldoc -f sqrt sqrt EXPR sqrt #Return the square root of EXPR.

Health Care Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in allied health, dentistry, midwifery-obstetrics , medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy and other care providers. It refers to the work done in providing primary care, secondary care, and tertiary care, as well as in public health. Access to health care varies across countries, groups, and individuals, largely influenced by social and economic conditions as well as the health policies in place. Health care can contribute to a significant part of a country's economy. Health care is conventionally regarded as an important determinant in promoting the general physical and mental health and well-being of people around the world. Health care delivery[edit] Primary care may be provided in community health centres. Primary care[edit] Secondary care[edit] Tertiary care[edit] Quaternary care[edit]

Blogs Technologies Contact Us About Oracle Cloud Events Top Actions News Key Topics Oracle Integrated Cloud Applications & Platform Services What is SSL? SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. This link ensures that all data passed between the web server and browsers remain private and integral. SSL is an industry standard and is used by millions of websites in the protection of their online transactions with their customers. To be able to create an SSL connection a web server requires an SSL Certificate. The Public Key does not need to be secret and is placed into a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) - a data file also containing your details. The complexities of the SSL protocol remain invisible to your customers. Typically an SSL Certificate will contain your domain name, your company name, your address, your city, your state and your country. Be sure to visit for some great services and tools to assist in your implementation of ssl on your site or if you want to examine the ssl certificates of other websites.

Law "Legal concept" redirects here. Lady Justice, a symbol of justice. She is depicted as a goddess equipped with three items: a sword, symbolising the coercive power of a court; scales, representing an objective standard by which competing claims are weighed; and a blindfold indicating that justice should be impartial and meted out objectively, without fear or favor and regardless of money, wealth, power or identity.[1] Law is a term which does not have a universally accepted definition,[2] but one definition is that law is a system of rules and guidelines which are enforced through social institutions to govern behaviour.[3] Laws can be made by legislatures through legislation (resulting in statutes), the executive through decrees and regulations, or judges through binding precedents (normally in common law jurisdictions). To implement and enforce the law and provide services to the public by public servants, a government's bureaucracy, military, and police are vital. Definition[edit]

WebKit WebKit is available under a BSD-form license[11] with the exception of the WebCore and JavaScriptCore components, which are available under the GNU Lesser General Public License. As of March 7, 2013, WebKit is a trademark of Apple, registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.[12] Origins[edit] According to Apple, some changes involved OS X-specific features (e.g., Objective-C, KWQ,[15] OS X calls) that are absent in KDE's KHTML, which called for different development tactics.[16] Split development[edit] The exchange of code between WebCore and KHTML became increasingly difficult as the code base diverged because both projects had different approaches in coding and code sharing.[17] At one point KHTML developers said they were unlikely to accept Apple's changes and claimed the relationship between the two groups was a "bitter failure".[18] Apple submitted their changes in large patches containing very many changes with inadequate documentation, often to do with future additions.

Information retrieval Information retrieval is the activity of obtaining information resources relevant to an information need from a collection of information resources. Searches can be based on metadata or on full-text (or other content-based) indexing. Automated information retrieval systems are used to reduce what has been called "information overload". Many universities and public libraries use IR systems to provide access to books, journals and other documents. Web search engines are the most visible IR applications. Overview[edit] An information retrieval process begins when a user enters a query into the system. An object is an entity that is represented by information in a database. Most IR systems compute a numeric score on how well each object in the database matches the query, and rank the objects according to this value. History[edit] Model types[edit] For effectively retrieving relevant documents by IR strategies, the documents are typically transformed into a suitable representation. Recall[edit]

Collaborative Methods: Share API Java Library I hope you guys are having fun playing with our APIs. To make things a bit easier, here is a Java library that you can use that takes care of all the nasty authentication and XML formatting bits. It could also be of use as reference for those of you developing libraries in other languages. There are a few dependencies: commons httpclient, logging, codec, and json.jar. Coming soon, the ActionScript library. SQLite SQLite is ACID-compliant and implements most of the SQL standard, using a dynamically and weakly typed SQL syntax that does not guarantee the domain integrity. SQLite is a popular choice as embedded database for local/client storage in application software such as web browsers. It is arguably the most widely deployed database engine, as it is used today by several widespread browsers, operating systems, and embedded systems, among others.[5] SQLite has many bindings to programming languages. The source code for SQLite is in the public domain.[2][6] Design[edit] History[edit] D. In 2011 Hipp announced his plans to add an UnQL interface to SQLite databases and to develop UnQLite, an embeddable document-oriented database.[8] Howard Chu ported SQLite to use Openldap MDB instead of the original Btree code and called it sqlightning. Features[edit] SQLite full Unicode support is optional.[14] As of version 3.8.2 it's possible to create tables without rowid.[16] Development[edit] Adoption[edit]

What Is the Difference Between GSM and CDMA? anon5910, You have quite a lot of your facts confused. Let me clarify a few of them for the readers. >1st: CDMA is a much more superior technology, Yes it is all digital and extremely more secure than GSM in terms of eavesdropping and hack/clone capability. Yes, this still happens in 2007. CDMA and GSM are both digital. >2nd: Just because Europe has mandated GSM as their technology, doesn't mean all of the world GSM is used. More nonsense. >3rd: GSM you might be able to move a chip from phone to phone...but first you have to ask yourself if you're living somewhere like the states...why are you switching back and forth on phones that much. Consumers like new phones about every 2 years or so just like they update their computers, laptops, operating systems, game consoles, cars, TVs,... >4th: GSM is evolving to CDMA! Not exactly. >5th: There are very very few phones that work on all the networks, and there is no such thing as every single network. >Quad Band CDMA Phones: only up to 4!

Cross Language Evaluation Forum Evaluation Evaluation is often used to characterize to Only on, Rated, Created by, Exclusively on, Only from, Only at, Get it at, Designed for, Written by, Directed by, Produced by, Here on, Headquartered in, Located in, Do not, Available for, Available at and Has been. Definition[edit] Evaluation is the structured interpretation and giving of meaning to predicted or actual impacts of proposals or results. It looks at original objectives, and at what is either predicted or what was accomplished and how it was accomplished. Evaluation is inherently a theoretically informed approach (whether explicitly or not), and consequently any particular definition of evaluation would have be tailored to its context - the theory, needs, purpose, and methodology of the evaluation process itself. A systematic, rigorous, and meticulous application of scientific methods to assess the design, implementation, improvement, or outcomes of a program.
