Mobile: Google G2 / HTC-Magic cannot do 3G on ATTW :(

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

Basically, it is a 3G band issue. TMobile & AT&T Wireless do not use the same 3G bands (AT&T Wireless does not use use the conventional ones). G2/HTC-Magic was built for TMobile.

The G2/HTC-MagicĀ 3G Network HSDPA 900 / 2100

AT&T Wireless usesĀ 850mhz(the old TDMA band) and 1900mhz for 3G.

Here is a great post about the TMobile/ATTW 3G band issue.

Ho, well, it was too good to be true. Edge is still not that bad, at least for email/calendar and even Map.

jQuery: Remove vs. Hide

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

jQuery hide just hide an element by adding the “display:none” css properties.


jQuery remove removes the elements from the DOM including all event handlers and internally cached data.

jQuery: Get last added (or appended) element.

Wednesday, May 13th, 2009
var lastAddedElement = $("#myDiv").append("Cool link").find(":last");

The $.fn.append method returns the selected element and not the added one (this is to allow chaining)

jQuery: Pass data from draggable to droppable (jQueryUI)

Friday, May 8th, 2009

jQuery has a neat and efficient way to attach data to DOM elements ($ You can use it to pass data from your draggable to your droppable.

First you attach the data to the draggable UI element:

  helper: 'clone',
  revert: 'invalid'
}).data("myData","secret data");

Then, you get it back on drop:

   accept: ".document",
   hoverClass: "drophover",
   tolerance: "touch",
   drop: function(event, ui){

Hibernate: org.hibernate.WrongClassException … instanceAlreadyLoaded

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Hibernate inheritance and relationship could lead to the following exception:

Caused by: org.hibernate.WrongClassException: Object with id: 3 was not of the
specified subclass...
        at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.instanceAlreadyLoaded(
        at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.getRow(
        at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.getRowFromResultSet(
        at org.hibernate.loader.Loader.doQuery(

Putting @ForceDiscriminator near the @DiscriminatorValue(..) of your respective classes might solve the problem.
