CVS log Examples - How to get a change log

Recently our team has been committing a lot of files into CVS. We had three branches and were committing files based on certain rules of critical-ness of the commit. After two weeks of such committing, we merged all files to one branch. And then we were asked to give a simple change log for the two weeks. Coming from a strong SVN background, It wasn't easy for me to get a command for this and I have been searching Google, and could not find it. I guess soon we are going to get GITtting, But for now, and for people still adamant to get out of CVS. Here are some samples.

To show the headers of files created after October 1, 2005 and before October 3, 2005:
cvs log -S -d "2005/10/1<2005/10/3"

To show the headers of files in the current directory created after October 1, 2005 through the present time:
cvs log -S -l -d "2005/10/1<now"

Commits by a user with username after a date
cvs log -wusername -S -N -d "<1 Apr 2005"

Note: The quotes and the spacing!

Then it can be an Equity account where all your money is yours or a Margin account , where some of the money is lent by the brokerage firm. Then I get Buying power , which is the dollor value of how much stocks you can buy. I can make profit by simple rules. Buy when Price is low. Sell when price is high. There is another more intersting way of earning money. Selling short . Thats when price is not high, per say, but when are confident that the price WILL go down. then buy back when its lowest. This is what

classpath*: making your Modular Spring Resources

Spring gives multiple options to load XML resources for building contexts. the reference documentation does explain this feature quite well. However, I am taking my shot at explaining the different practical scenarios ( by order of growing modularisation) For Example, A simplest Spring based web Context Loader can be configured with resources like this <context-param> <param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name> <param-value>applicationContext.xml</param-value> </context-param> <listener> <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class> </listener> You just need to put applicationContext.xml in WEB-INF/ folder of your webapp. However, Typically an application is n-tiered. You can also have multiple files setup and in relative paths. like <param-value> context-files/applicationContext.xml context-files/dao.xml context-files/service.xml </param-value>
