मुझे बचपन से ये अवतार थोड़ा भयानक लगा क्यूंकि हर जगह नरसिंह जी का सिर्फ रौद्र रूप  देखा। करीब करीब एक दशक पहले जब मैं जुहू के इस्कॉन टेम्पल गया तब वहाँ एक छोटे बच्चे को रोते हुए देखा, वो नरसिंह के भयावह  रूप वाली मूर्ति देखकर डर गया था।

"डरते नहीं बेटा ये भगवान् है," बच्चे की माँ उससे ये कहकर चुप करा रही ही ।

"नरसिंह रूप देखके डर तो स्वाभाविक है," मेरे मुँह से सहसा निकल पड़ा ।

#SpringSecurity: OAuth2 Implementation with Spring Boot

In this tutorial we will learn to build an authorization server using oauth2 to authenticate user's identity to provide access_token. This access_token will be used to request data from resource server.

We will be creating an authorization server and embedding the resource server inside authorization server. Authorization server will generate the tokens and resource server will validate these token.

We will be having two services, first one would be authorization server (along with resource server) and the second one would be a client, from which we will be accessing the servers.

#Ramayan: क्या राम ने वकाई खाये थे शबरी के झूठे बेर?

रामानंद सागर की रामायण में शबरी के राम मिलान वाला एपिसोड Youtube पे देख रहा था। रामानंद जी ने रामकथा बहुत साफ़, सहज, और दिल छू लेने वाले भाव से बनायी है, पर शबरी वाला एपिसोड थोड़ा थोड़ा आँखों में चुबता है।

#SpringSecurity: What is the difference between access and refresh token?

Access Token
  • An access token is a string representing an authorization issued to the client. Tokens represent specific scopes and duration of access, granted by the resource owner, and enforced by the resource server and authorization server.
  • An access token is put in the Authorization header of our request and it usually looks like 'Bearer h090Yuuyuiyv'. It is verified by the API, which the client is calling.
  • Access token are usually in JWT format, but you can use any other format.
  • Access tokens are usually short lived, because it is difficult (although not impossible) to centrally revoke access tokens.
  • The responsibility of access token is to access data before it gets expired.

#SpringSecurity:Oauth 2.0 Roles

OAuth 2 is an authorization method to provide access to protected resources over the HTTP protocol.

It enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service:
a). Either on behalf of a resource owner by orchestrating an approval interaction between the resource owner and the HTTP service
b). Or by allowing the third-party application to obtain access on its own behalf.

#LeetCode: Jewels and Stones

You're given strings J representing the types of stones that are jewels, and S representing the stones you have.  Each character in S is a type of stone you have.  You want to know how many of the stones you have are also jewels.

The letters in J are guaranteed distinct, and all characters in J and S are letters. Letters are case sensitive, so "a" is considered a different type of stone from "A".

#Ramayan: कैसे हुआ था सीता का जन्म?

ज बैसाख मास के शुक्ल पक्ष की नवमी तिथि है, पौराणिक ग्रंथों के अनुसार आज के दिन सीता की उत्पत्ति हुई थी।

आज कही पढ़ा 'धार्मिक मान्यता है कि इस दिन प्रभु श्रीराम और माता जानकी को विधि-विधान पूर्वक पूजा आराधना करने से व्रती को अमोघ फल की प्राप्ति होती है साथ ही व्रती को मनोवांछित फलों की भी प्राप्ति होती है'। 

थोड़ा हास्यास्पद लगा, जन्मदिन सीता का और पूजा राम के साथ? बताये ज़रा क्या ऐसी कोई धार्मिक मान्यता है जो कहती हो राम नवमी के दिन राम-सीता की पूजा या फिर जन्माष्टमी के दिन कृष्णा के साथ राधा की आराधना करना चाहिए? खैर जाने दीजिये, पुरुष प्रधान समाज में ऐसा मुमकिन कहा?

कभी समय मिले तो वाल्मीकि रामायण पढ़ियेगा, पुरुष प्रधानता की अनेक मिसाल मिल जायेगी।

शायद इसीलिए वाल्मीकि जी ने सर्ग ६६(छियासठ) में सिर्फ दो श्लोको (१३-१४) में सीता की उत्पत्ति के बारे में संक्षेप में वर्णन किया है, हलाकि राम जन्म विस्तार में बताया गया है।

#LeetCode: First Bad Version

You are a product manager and currently leading a team to develop a new product. Unfortunately, the latest version of your product fails the quality check. Since each version is developed based on the previous version, all the versions after a bad version are also bad.

Suppose you have n versions [1, 2, ..., n] and you want to find out the first bad one, which causes all the following ones to be bad.

You are given an API bool isBadVersion(version) which will return whether version is bad. Implement a function to find the first bad version. You should minimize the number of calls to the API.

#LeetCode: Check valid sequence from root to leaves in a BTree

Check If a String Is a Valid Sequence from Root to Leaves Path in a Binary Tree

Given a binary tree where each path going from the root to any leaf form a valid sequence, check if a given string is a valid sequence in such binary tree.

We get the given string from the concatenation of an array of integers arr and the concatenation of all values of the nodes along a path results in a sequence in the given binary tree.

#LeetCode: Binary Tree Maximum Path Sum

Given a non-empty binary tree, find the maximum path sum.

For this problem, a path is defined as any sequence of nodes from some starting node to any node in the tree along the parent-child connections. The path must contain at least one node and does not need to go through the root.

#JWT: Part 3 - Spring Boot project with Spring Security and JWT Example

We will develop a Spring boot project with Spring security and JWt from scratch.

1). Create an API which will authenticate the user details and generate JWT token.
2). Functionality which will verify each request for the valid JWT.

#JWT: Part 2 - JWT Structure

What is JWT token?
JWT (JSON Web Token) is a safe, compact, and self-contained way of transmitting information between multiple parties in the form of a JSON object. It is used for authorization.

#JWT: Part 1 - Authorization Strategies, Real Life examples of Session and JWT Token

Authorization Strategies
HTTP is a stateless protocol that's why we need to send all the desired information each time, so that the server can authorize the request.

Let's say you are logged in tinder, while login you need to enter your user name and password. Tinder will verify if you are a valid user or not, if yes, it will start showing potential matches. Now if you right or left swipe on any profile, or do anything else on Tinder, it will send a request again to the Tinder server. Since HTTP is stateless, with each request you will asked to enter your credentials, which is quite irritating. To solve this problem, the session is managed.

#LeetCode: Longest Common Subsequence

Given two strings text1 and text2, return the length of their longest common subsequence.

A subsequence of a string is a new string generated from the original string with some characters(can be none) deleted without changing the relative order of the remaining characters. (eg, "ace" is a subsequence of "abcde" while "aec" is not). A common subsequence of two strings is a subsequence that is common to both strings.

If there is no common subsequence, return 0.

How to pass command line arguments in Python?

Handling command line arguments with Python
  • There are number of different ways of handling command line arguments in Python 3. 
  • 'sys' module is the built-in way. 
  • We can also use getopt module, which handles both short and long options, including the evaluation of the parameter values.
  • argparse module, which is derived from the optparse module available up to Python 2.7, we can also use it to handle command line arguments.
  • The other method is using the docopt module, which is available on GitHub.

#Collections: Part 5 (Hashmap implementation in pre-Java 8 and Java 8)

What is the difference in Hashmap implementation in pre-Java 8 and Java 8?

There is no change to how the Java developer uses and implements HashMap < K, V > . In Java 8, they have made some internal change in HashMap, well that changes not only affect HashMap but also, LinkedHashMap, and ConcurrentHashMap.

a). The alternative String hash function added in Java 7 has been removed in Java 8. The default hash formula on strings was optimized to being both faster and allow for less clashes on average. Thus if your key is a string (some someone’s name in a contacts list), it should calculate that hash faster than before and the likelihood that it would calculate a hash pointing to the same bucket is less.
b). Buckets containing a large number of colliding keys will store their entries in a balanced tree instead of a linked list after certain threshold is reached.

#Collections: Part 4 (How ConcurrentHashMap Works Internally in Java?)

What is ConcurrentHashMap?
ConcurrentHashMap class is introduced in JDK 1.5, which implements ConcurrentMap as well as Serializable interface also.

ConcureentHashMap is enhancement of HashMap and allow concurrent access to the map. Segment, which is internal data structure and part of map is locked while adding or updating the map. Due to this the ConcurrentHashMap allows concurrent threads to read the value without locking at all. This data structure was introduced to improve performance.

Part 1: Node JS Tutorial-var vs let vs const in JavaScript

While declaring any variable we can use either var, let or const. In JavaScript, variables are initialized with the value of undefined when they are created. What that means is if we try to log the declaration variable, we’ll get undefined. e.g:

var name;
console.log(name); // this will print 'undefined'

Part 2: Node JS Tutorial- Understanding npm

Write your own module
Open visual studio code, create a new file with the name my-module.js. Let's create another file module-demo.js. We will declare a variable inside my-module.js and try to access it from module-demo.js.

In my-module.js, we have declared variable mytext.

#Collections: Part 3- All about PriorityQueue in Java

What is PriorityQueue in Java?
  • A queue follows First-In-First-Out algorithm, in case of PriorityQueue queue elements are processed according to the priority (ordered as per their natural ordering or based on a custom Comparator supplied at the time of creation).
  • The PriorityQueue is based on the priority heap. 
  • The elements of the PriorityQueue are ordered according to the natural ordering, or by a Comparator provided at queue construction time, depending on which constructor is used.
  • We can’t create PriorityQueue of Objects that are non-comparable
  • PriorityQueue in Java doesn’t permit null.
  • PriorityQueue are unbound queues.
  • The head of this queue is the least element with respect to the specified ordering. If multiple elements are tied for least value, the head is one of those elements — ties are broken arbitrarily.
  • The queue retrieval operations poll, remove, peek, and element access the element at the head of the queue.
  • PriorityQueue inherits methods from AbstractQueue, AbstractCollection, Collection and Object class.
PriorityQueue Constructors
  • PriorityQueue(): Creates a PriorityQueue with the default initial capacity (which is 11) that orders its elements according to their natural ordering.
  • PriorityQueue(Collection c): It creates a PriorityQueue containing the elements in the specified collection.
  • PriorityQueue(int initialCapacity): Creates a PriorityQueue with the specified initial capacity that orders its elements according to their natural ordering.
  • PriorityQueue(int initialCapacity, Comparator comparator): Creates a PriorityQueue with the specified initial capacity that orders its elements according to the specified comparator.
  • PriorityQueue(PriorityQueue c): Creates a PriorityQueue containing the elements in the another priority queue.
  • PriorityQueue(SortedSet c): Creates a PriorityQueue containing the elements in the specified sorted set.

PriorityQueue operations
  • boolean add(E element)inserts the specified element into this priority queue.
  • boolean offer(E e) method is used to insert a specific element into the priority queue.
  • public peek() retrieves, but does not remove, the head of this queue, or returns null if this queue is empty.
  • public poll()retrieves and removes the head of this queue, or returns null if this queue is empty.
  • public remove() removes a single instance of the specified element from this queue, if it is present. When we remove an element from the priority queue, the least element according to the specified ordering is removed first.
  • Iterator iterator() returns an iterator over the elements in this queue.
  • boolean contains(Object o) method returns true if this queue contains the specified element
  • void clear() is used to remove all of the contents of the priority queue.
  • int size() return the number of elements present in the set.
  • toArray() is used to return an array containing all of the elements in this queue.
  • Comparator comparator() method is used to return the comparator that can be used to order the elements of the queue.
