  • Decided to get a copy (hopefully with student discount) of Atlas. It does taxonomic analysis and outputs a matrix to Excel that I should be able to use to produce PageRank???
  • Timesheets! Done
  • Seeing if I can add a bit of reflection to addXXX(YYY) that will invoke add/setYYY(XXX). Since the target is a map, it shouldn’t care, but I do need to worry about recursion…
  • Added addSourceToTarget() and testSourceInTarget() to GuidBase. So Now addM2M looks like
    public void addM2M(GuidBase obj) throws Exception {
        addSourceToTarget(this, obj);
        addSourceToTarget(obj, this);

    and the example of Showroom.addCar() looks like

    public void addCar(Car car){
        if(cars == null){
            cars = new HashSet<>();
        try {
            if(!testSourceInTarget(this, car)){
                addSourceToTarget(this, car);
        } catch (Exception e) {

    Which now means that the two way mapping is automatic. And in case you’re wondering, testSourceInTarget looks first for a method that returns the source type, and then looks for a method that returns a Set<source type>. If it find the source in either one of those, it returns true.

  • Got queries running. Simple queries are easy, but the more complex ones can be pretty ugly. Here’s an example that pulls a Showroom Object based on a nested Person Object (instanced as ‘customer’):
    // do a query based on a nested item's value. Kinda yucky...
    Criteria criteria = session.createCriteria(Showroom.class, "sh");
    criteria.createAlias("sh.customers", "c");
    List result = criteria.add("", "%Aaron%")).list();
    for(Object o : result){

  • Finished up notes on the Gezi paper
  • Back to hibernate
    • finishing up M2M method
    • Have both items pointing at each other. Currently throwing a plain Exception. Will probably need to change that later, if the message turns out not to be enough.
    • Moved M2M to the GuidBase class and tested with the showroom example I’ve been playing with. Success! Here’s the use case from the header:
      Class that sets up the mutual relationships between two classes that have to have access to each other's
      Sets in the context of a 'ManyToMany' Hibernate configuration. To set up the classes, do the following:
      1) Add the annotations that define the mapping table in one class - e.g:
      For the class 'Kitten'
         @ManyToMany(cascade = CascadeType.ALL)
         @JoinTable(name = "kittens_puppies",
            joinColumns = @JoinColumn(name = "kitten_id"),
            inverseJoinColumns = @JoinColumn(name = "puppy_id")
         private Set<Puppy> puppies;
      Similarly, for the class 'Puppy'
      @ManyToMany(cascade = javax.persistence.CascadeType.ALL, mappedBy = "puppies" )
       private Set<Kitten> kittens;
      Each class will need an 'addXXX(XXX xxx) class that adds a single element of XXX to the Set. This is the
      template that M2M is looking for. There needs to be one and only one method for each mapping.
      An example from the class 'Kitten' is shown below:
         public class addPuppy(Puppy puppy){
             if(puppies == null){
                 puppies = new HashSet()
      Lastly, the code that handles the session needs to call xxx.M2M once for each of the relationships:
      Kitten k1 = new Kitten();
      Kitten k2 = new Kitten();
      Kitten k3 = new Kitten();
      Kitten k4 = new Kitten();
      Puppy p1 = new Puppy();
      Puppy p2 = new Puppy();
      Puppy p3 = new Puppy();
      Puppy p4 = new Puppy();
    • And that seems to be working! I got a little confused as to which item should be mapped to, but now understand that the collection to be mapped to has to (should?) be the Set<XXX> of items that are referenced in the YYY class that contains the @JoinTable annotations.
    • Need to add a relation between networks and associations and items. Done.
    • Time to figure out queries. Get all the networks names for a user, then get a network, that sort of thing.

  • Finished Social Media and Trust during the Gezi Protests in Turkey.
  • More Hibernate
    • After stepping through the ‘Showroom’ example on pg 54 (Using a Join Table), of Just Hibernate I think I see my problem. In my case, the corpus has already been created and exists as an entry in the corpora table. I need to add a relationship when a word is run against a new corpus. Which come to think about it, should have the word count in it. Maybe?
    • Ok, I don’t like the way that ManyToMany is implemented. Hibernate should be smart enough to figure out how to make a default mapping table. Sigh.
    • And you have to call each object with the other object or it doesn’t load properly.
    • After being annoyed for a while, I decided to try reflection as a making fewer calls. The following still needs the get/set member element calls, but I like the direction it’s going. Will work on it some more tomorrow (need to add the call on the this class):
      public void addM2M(Object obj){
          Class thisClass = this.getClass();
          String thisName = thisClass.getName();
          Class thatClass = obj.getClass();
          Method[] thatMethods = thatClass.getMethods();
          Method thatMethod = null;
          for(int i = 0; i < thatMethods.length; ++i){
              Method m = thatMethods[i];
              Type[] types = m.getGenericParameterTypes();
              if (types.length == 1) { // looking for one arg setters
                  for (int j = 0; j < types.length; ++j) {
                      Type t = types[j];
                      if ((t.getTypeName() == thisName)) {
                          thatMethod = m;
              if(thatMethod != null){
          if(thatMethod != null){
              try {
                  thatMethod.invoke(obj, this);
              } catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
              } catch (InvocationTargetException e) {
                  System.out.println("addM2M failed: "+e.getCause().getMessage());

  • Oliver, J. Eric, and Thomas J. Wood. “Conspiracy theories and the paranoid style (s) of mass opinion.” American Journal of Political Science 58.4 (2014): 952-966., and the Google Scholar page of papers that cite this. Looking for insight as to the items that make (a type of?) person believe false information.
  • This follows up on an On the Media show called To Your Health, that had two interesting stories: An interview with John Bohannon, who published the intentionally bad study on chocolate, and an interview with Taryn Harper Wright, a blogger who chases down cases of Munchausen by Internet, and says that excessive drama is a strong indicator of this kind of hoax.
  • Reading Social Media and Trust during the Gezi Protests in Turkey.
    • Qualitative study that proposes Social Trust and System Trust
      • Social Trust
      • System Trust
  • Hibernating Moderately
    • Working on the dictionary
    • Working on the Corpus
      • Name
      • Date created
      • Source URL
      • Raw Content
      • Cleaned Content
      • Importer
      • Word count
      • guid
    • I think I’ll need a table that has the word id that points to a corpus and gives the count of that word in that corpus. The table gets updated whenever a dictionary is run against a corpus. Since words are not shared between dictionaries (Java != Java), getting the corpus to dictionary relationship is straightforward if needed.
    • Created a GuidBase that handles the name, id, and guid code that’s shared across most of the items.
    • Discovered Jsoup, which has some nice (fast?) html parsing.
    • Finished most of Corpus. Need to add a join to users. Done
    • Added BaseDictionary.
    • Added BaseDictionaryEntry.
    • Working on getting a join table working that maps words to corpora and am getting a “WARN: SQL Error: 1062, SQLState: 23000”. I was thinking that I could create a new HashMap, but I think I may have to point to the list in a different way. Here’s the example from JustHibernate:
              Showroom showroom = new Showroom();
              showroom.setLocation("East Croydon, Greater London");
              showroom.setManager("Barry Larry");
              Set cars = new HashSet();
              cars.add(new Car("Toyota", "Racing Green"));
              cars.add(new Car("Nissan", "White"));
              cars.add(new Car("BMW", "Black"));
              cars.add(new Car("Mercedes", "Silver"));
    • Where the Showroom class has the Cars Set annotation as follows:
           joinColumns = @JoinColumn(name="SHOWROOM_ID")
          private Set cars = null;
    • Anyway, more tomorrow…
    • Start on queries that:
      • List networks for users
      • List dictionaries for users
      • List Corpora

      • MIT underground guide?
  • Hibernate
    • So the way we get around joins is to explicitly differentiate the primary key columns. So where I had ‘id_index’ as a common element which I would change in the creation of the view, in hibernate we have to have the differences to begin with (or we change the attribute column?) regardless, the column names appear to have to be different in the table…
    • Here’s a good example of one-table-per-subclass that worked for me.
    • And here’s my version. First, the cfg.xml:
              <property name="connection.url">jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/jh</property>
              <property name="connection.driver_class">com.mysql.jdbc.Driver</property>
              <property name="connection.username">root</property>
              <property name="connection.password">edge</property>
              <property name="dialect">org.hibernate.dialect.MySQL5Dialect</property>
              <property name="hibernate.show_sql">true</property>
              <!-- Drop and re-create the database schema on startup -->
              <property name="">create-drop</property>
              <mapping class="com.philfeldman.mappings.Employee"/>
              <mapping class="com.philfeldman.mappings.Person"/>
    • Next, the base Person Class:
      package com.viztronix.mappings;
      import javax.persistence.Column;
      import javax.persistence.Entity;
      import javax.persistence.GeneratedValue;
      import javax.persistence.Id;
      import javax.persistence.Inheritance;
      import javax.persistence.InheritanceType;
      import javax.persistence.Table;
      import java.util.UUID;
      @Table(name = "person")
      public class Person {
          @Column(name = "person_ID")
          private Long personId;
          @Column(name = "first_name")
          private String firstname;
          @Column(name = "last_name")
          private String lastname;
          @Column(name = "uuid")
          private String uuid;
          // Constructors and Getter/Setter methods,
          public Person(){
              UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();
              this.uuid = uuid.toString();
          public Long getPersonId() {
              return personId;
          // getters and setters...
          public String toString(){
              return "["+personId+"/"+uuid+"]: "+firstname+" "+lastname;
    • The inheriting Employee class:
      package com.viztronix.mappings;
      import java.util.Date;
      import javax.persistence.*;
      public class Employee extends Person {
          private Date joiningDate;
          private String departmentName;
          // getters and setters...
          public String toString() {
              return super.toString()+ " "+departmentName+" hired "+joiningDate.toString();
    • The ‘main’ program that calls the base class and subclass:
      package com.philfeldman.mains;
      import com.viztronix.mappings.Employee;
      import com.viztronix.mappings.Person;
      import org.hibernate.HibernateException;
      import java.util.Date;
      public class EmployeeTest extends BaseTest{
          public void addRandomPerson(){
              try {
                  Person person = new Person();
                  person.setFirstname("firstname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  person.setLastname("lastname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
              }catch (HibernateException e){
          public void addRandomEmployee(){
              try {
                  Employee employee = new Employee();
                  employee.setFirstname("firstname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  employee.setLastname("lastname_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  employee.setDepartmentName("dept_" + this.rand.nextInt(100));
                  employee.setJoiningDate(new Date());
              }catch (HibernateException e){
          public static void main(String[] args){
              try {
                  boolean setupTables = false;
                  EmployeeTest et = new EmployeeTest();
                  for(int i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {
              }catch (Exception e){
    • And some output. First, from the Java code with the Hibernate SQL statements included. It’s nice to see that the same strategy that I was using for my direction db interaction is being used by Hibernate::
      Hibernate: alter table employee drop foreign key FK_apfulk355h3oc786vhg2jg09w
      Hibernate: drop table if exists employee
      Hibernate: drop table if exists person
      Hibernate: create table employee (department_name varchar(255), joining_date datetime, person_ID bigint not null, primary key (person_ID))
      Hibernate: create table person (person_ID bigint not null auto_increment, first_name varchar(255), last_name varchar(255), uuid varchar(255), primary key (person_ID))

    • Last, here’s what was produced in the db: dbResults
    • Starting on the network data model
    • Added NetworkType(class) network_types(table)
    • Added BaseNode(class) network_nodes(table)
      • The mapping for the types in the BaseNode class looks like this (working from this tutorial):
        public class BaseNode {
            @GeneratedValue(strategy= GenerationType.AUTO)
            private int id;
            private String name;
            private String guid;
            @JoinColumn(name = "type_id")
            private NetworkType type;
            public BaseNode(){
                UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();
                guid = uuid.toString();
            public BaseNode(String name, NetworkType type) {
       = name;
                this.type = type;
            public String toString() {
                return "["+id+"]: name = "+name+", type = "+type.getName()+", guid = "+guid;
      • No changes needed for the NetworkType class, so it’s a one-way relationship, which is what I wanted:
        public class NetworkType {
            @GeneratedValue(strategy= GenerationType.AUTO)
            private int id;
            private String name = null;
            public NetworkType(){}
            public NetworkType(String name) {
       = name;
            // ...
            public String toString() {
                return "["+id+"]: "+name;

  • Probabilistic Inference II
    • Assertion – Any variable in a graph is said by me to be independent of any other non-descendant, given its parents. All the causality flows through the parents.
    • A belief net or Bays net is *always* acyclic and directed.
    • Traverse the graph from the bottom up, so that no node depends on a node to its left in a list.
    • Generating the list:BayesNetFromData
    • When using the list, work from the top down in the list
    • Naive Bayesian inference
      • P(a|b)P(b) = P(a,b) = P(b|a)P(a)
      • P(a|b) = (P(b|a)P(a))/P(b) BayesChain
      • Can use Bayes to decide between models – Naive Bayesian Classification
      • Use the sum of the logs of the probabilities rather than the products because otherwise we run out of bits of precision
    • The right thing to do when you don’t know anything (just have symptoms)
  • Hibernate
    • Adding config.setProperty(“”, “update”); to the setup, so that tables can be rebuilt on demand. Nope, that didn’t work. Maybe I can’t split configuration between the config file and programmatic variables?
    • The only way that I was able to get this to work as an argument was to have a setupTables flag indicate which config to read. That works well though.
    • Got simple collections running, which means that I should be able to get networks built. Basically modified the example from Just Hibernate that starts on page 53.
    • Next, we work on getting inheritance to work. I think this will help.
  • Initial Java class network thoughts, just to try storing and retrieving items
    • BaseItem
      • guid
    •  BaseNode extends BaseItem
      • node_id
      • name
    • BaseEdge extends BaseItem
      • edge_id
      • source
      • target
      • weight
    • BaseNetwork extends BaseItem
      • network_id
      • name
      • owner
      • edgeList
      • nodeList (we need this because we may have orphans in the network)
    • BaseOwner extends BaseItem
      • owner_id
      • name
      • password?

  • Was listening to the Planet Money podcast on A/B testing last night and they mentioned how they were using the ‘skip’ button to determine how to shape their podcast. So this is a feedback device that people use that has at most a very indirect effect on the relevance of the provided item, but it does provide the system with a value judgement from the consumer. The benefit to the user is the ability to skip content, and that appears to be enough. The benefit to the producer is the aggregate responses of the users (40k in this place, so lots of statistical power). Somewhat related:
  • And I thought of a title that describes the focus of this effort: Using Value-Decorated Semantic Nets to Infer Credibility
  • Probabilistic Inference I
    • Joint probability tables are the ideal, but impractical
    • Basic probability (intuition at 21:00)
      • probability 0 … 1
      • True = 1
      • False = 0
      • P(a) + P(b) – P(a, b) = P(a or b)
    • Conditional probability
      • Definitions
      • P(a|b) = P(a,b)/P(b)
        • Probability of a given be is the probability of a AND b over the probability of b (24:00)
      • P(a, b, c) = ??
        • y = b, c
        • P(a, b, c) = P(a, y) = P(a|y)P(y)
        • = P(a|b,c)P(b,c)
        • = P(a|b,c)P(b|c)P(c) note that as we go from left to right, there is less elements to depend on.
      • Generalized
        • (Px1, …, xn) = chain rule (starts at 28:31)chainedConditionalProbability
    • Independence
      • Definitions
      • P(a|b) = P(a) if a independent of b – video at 32:30
        • The probability of a in the universe is the same as the probability of a and b in b. The two rations are the same. Why is this definition needed?
      • Conditional independence
      • P(a|b,z) = P(z)
      • P(a,b|z) = P(a|z)P((b|z)
    • Belief Nets
      • Causal relationships. The dog barks because of the Racoon
      • Every node is dependent only on its parent(s) and possibly its children (descendents)
      • BeliefNets If this were a joint probability table there would be 2^5 (32) as opposed to the number here, which is 10.
      • P(p,d,b,t,r) = P(p|d,b,t,r)…P(r), which we can reduce the combinations. (See 46:30 or so)
  • Hibernating slowly
    • The ./basic/ as described in the hibernate 5 quickstart doesn’t seem to exist in either the 4.3 or the 5.5 bubndle. It does look like IntelliJ has a JPA and Hibernate section. Trying that.
    • Importing the current pg db, which did get found since I had already set up that relationship with database in yesterday’s post.
    • In the Import Database Schema wizard, I had to create a package for the files to be created in. In this case, since I’ve already had to create a new module under HibernateTest1 (HibernateTest1Module1), I called the package com.philfeldman.ht1m1, which is similar to the Entity prefix of ht1m1_ that I decided to add.
    • Got a ‘Basic’ attribute type should not be ‘Object’ error. When opening up the ‘weather’ element in the dialog (see below) ImportDatabaseSchema I could see that the tempHi and tempLo items are being mapped as Objects. Typing java.Lang.Integer corrects the problem. The thing to remember here is that the error doesn’t ripple up. When ‘weather’ is closed, there are no red items.
    • That worked, but there were some significant compiler errors. Fixed by letting the IDE download java EE6 libraries. It still looks like we’re using java 1.8, but now have a bunch of External libraries that appear to be redundant? LotsaLibs.jpg
    • Anyway, using the persistence view, created a ht1m1_UserEntity class. Now I need to make it persist and add values to it. for that matter, I need to query the weather table…
    • Haven’t gotten to accessing data yet, but you can set up relationships graphically in IntelliJ, which is pretty cool.
    • And now I’m kind of stuck. The console interface with the hibernate/db keeps on asking for a persistence provider which seems to be in the classpath but doesn’t seem to be helping.
  • Starting over
    • Spent a few bucks and got Just Hibernate. Let’s see if that works better.
    • Need to install Git – Done. Yay!
    • Created JustHibernate1 as a JavaEE project with Hibernate and the default download libraries (4.2.2). Also created a corresponding hibernate_test database in MySql. Nothing in it yet.
    • Opened up the database view and connected to my MySql database. This gives me the opportunity to (a) test the connection and (b) get the URL for the hibernate.cfg.xml file (jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/hibernate_test)
    • Still needed to get the jdbc driver, so I used the Project Structure pane (F4) to import the mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.38 from maven. IntelliJ downloaded and stuck it in the lib directory. Here’s the module structureProjectStructureModules And here’s the library structure for the mysql driver. Note that it’s actually pointing at my m2 repo…ProjectStructureLibraries
    • So now I’m about where I was at lunch, but everything is cleaner. Afraid to actually try connecting at 5:00 on a Friday, so we’ll try this on Monday <fingers  crossed>

  • Did a little poking around with hibernate, since Jeremy says that Hibernate plus annotations are the standard here. It does look like 4.3.8 final is the version that’s being used (4.3.11 is close enough?) with jpa annotations. Jeremy’s also been using Spring Data JPA, which I guess needs to be on the list as well.
  • Debating on whether I should set up a Hibernate sandbox with Gradle, but I think that’s a bridge too far.
  • Oh yeah, when you check out a project in subversion, check it out at its trunk node. Otherwise Gradle doesn’t know what to do. It also seems to be downloading everything again as I import the project. I wonder if this will take 41 minutes again?
    • You can then run by clicking on src/main/java/com.philfeldman.nlpservice/web/Application.
    • Verified that everything works by sending json object to localhost:8870/nlpservice/analyze in Postman: Postman
  • Ok, back to setting up a sandbox for schema development
    • Downloading and installing Postgresql, version 9.4.5
    • The install kind of broke and didn’t create the data files. I wound up doing the Short Version from the command line, which is working just fine.
    • To start the db server – C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.4\bin>postgres.exe -D \Development\PostGresSQL\Data
    • To run the client – C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\9.4\bin>psql test
    • Set up shortcuts that launch the server and the test db following these instructions.
  • Starting the Hibernate sandbox project.
    • Had to enable the the hibernate IntelliJ plugin
    • connected IntelliJ to the postgres db using the Database View. . I thought the superuser name was ‘postgres’, but \du says it’s ‘philip.feldman’. It must have pulled that from the OS. Password was what I thought I set it to though.
    • In a fit of unrealistic expectation, decided to start with the latest hibernate Version 5.5.1.Final. The jar structure is really different from 4.3.11.Final, but we’ll see how that goes. Using the Hibernate 5.0 quickstart
