Network applications must handle events intelligently and efficiently, establish priorities, resolve conflicts, and manage resources to avoid blocks, dropouts, and the other jams that occur in high-traffic environments. Netty is a Java-based networking framework designed to handle asynchronous network events smoothly so applications are easy to write and maintain. Netty in Action introduces the Netty framework and shows how to incorporate it into Java network applications. Readers will learn to write highly-scalable applications without the need to dive into the low-level non-blocking APIs at the core of Java. They'll learn how to think in an asynchronous way and master the best practices of large-scale networks apps while working through numerous hands-on examples. Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

The concepts and theories of knowledge management and networks are well documented. Yet there are few, if any, guidelines on how to implement knowledge management within an organization, especially focusing on how to manage knowledge in a network environment. This book visualizes paths that allow one to make connections between theories, concepts and concrete actions. It shows how to integrate these different roots into a holistic view on managing knowledge in networks. It develops a methodology which will support the reader to move concrete steps forward towards building and maintaining knowledge networks in his organization.

Emotional difficulties in children aged 5-11 can display themselves in a range of different behaviours, and it is important for staff in schools to be able to identify and address these problems, and to provide appropriate help. This easy-to-use tool provides an observation checklist which enables staff to identify behavioural patterns in children with social and emotional difficulties, analyse the emotional difficulties underlying these behaviours and establish what kind of help and support the children need. Behavioural responses are categorised within clearly outlined topics, including behaviour, play and relationship with peers, attachment behaviours, emotional state in the classroom and attitude to attendance. Checklists and diagrams identify different 'styles' of relating (secure, avoidant, ambivalent), to help school staff who work with children and their families to respond appropriately to the individual needs of each child. A range of handouts include activities designed to provide emotional support, to focus and regulate behaviour and enable the child to develop important social and emotional skills. Suitable for use with children aged 5-11, this tool will be an invaluable resource for teachers, teaching assistants, learning support staff, school counsellors and educational psychologists.

“This is an important book. Nowhere else have I seen the theme of the runaways treated as thoroughly, honestly, unflinchingly. It not only describes the various stories fully, but it offers suggestions for improving a tragic situation. —Anais Nin
