Project or Build Version Numbers

In Software world, every project/product release has one version number associated with it to identify on which version of code base it has.

Usually every project/product release has its version as follows.

(Major).(Minor).(Maintenance/Enhancements).(Build Number)

Major - If the release has Major changes in Project/Product then we need to increment this number by 1
Minor -   If the release has Minor changes in Project/Product then we need to increment this number by 1
Maintenance - If the release has Bug fixes or Small Enhancements then we need to increase this number by 1.

Build Number :  Every time when we deliver build (latest code) to the QA to test, then we need to increase by 1.

Partial Builds: If only some of the modules in the project modified and if those modules only delivered to QA means, it is called as partial builds. And this will be noted as build number along with alphabets.

E.G of Build Numbers.

Current Version of Project is (4 Major Releases)
If Minor Project got released in next release. then it would be

After 4.1, some bug fixes got released, then it would be 4.1.1

For doing above we have delivered 4 builds to QA before Production  release then
version would be

Final release would be 4.1.1

E.G of Partial Build Numbers:

KEY - VALUE Store  - Similar to a  MAP.
   e.g. Dynamo DB or REDIS

DOCUMENT Sore  - Similar to KEY-VALUE, value can be JSON/XML and key will be unqiuely idnetified this document.
   e.g. Coutch DB or mongoDB.

Column Store - Multi timentional table, identifying data with row and column numbers.
  e.g.  Cassandra or Apache HBase

Graph Store - Store relation between nodes (record entities). It has better transaction management
e.g. Neo4J and Orient DB.

Compress a String


public class StringCompression {

public StringCompression() {
// TODO Auto-generated constructor stub

public static void main(String[] args) {

public static String compressString(String str) {
//String str = "aaaabbbbbcccc";
char[] charArray = str.toCharArray();
String compressedString = "";
int i = 0;
while (i < charArray.length) { int counter = 1; int j = i + 1; while (j < charArray.length && charArray[i] == charArray[j]) { counter++; j++; i++; } compressedString = compressedString + charArray[i] + counter; i++; } //System.out.println(compressedString); String output =(compressedString.length() > charArray.length)? str: compressedString;
return output;
