The great possibility for Java outsourcing appeared in 2001 at the time or Eclipse creation. In March-May 2005 over 17.000 copies were downloaded by the users every single day! The product got the great attention from authors, providers, bloggers and even developers. The great popularity of Eclipse was formed for due to it being the perfect platform for developing Java applications.
We’re now going to talk about the latest Eclipse platform version 3.1. It can be easily downloaded from the official site and has a lot of useful features to offer.
Does Java outsourcing get the new hope?
The most important brand new feature of new Eclipse is its support of new languages. This scheme is well known as J2SE 1.5 orJ2SE 5.0. This is the great source of whole new options for IT stuff.
The popularity of PHP is now far out of the question. This technology appeared to be used in over 200 million websites.
The origin of PHP (Personal Home Page) lies in hands of Rasmus and is dated around 1995. You can even download the very first version of PHP from the internet museum with the same name. It won’t take much time since the weight of it is merely 26 Kb.
The list of further action taken for PHP development includes the access to databases (PHP2), the hypertext abilities (PHP3) and s lot more. The third version finally somewhat resembled the program we know now.
The creation of Zend engine and further PHP development
It took place in 2000 as the next step in order to create codebase and appropriate solutions to the current IT situation in those days. These new features were taken into consideration in PHP4 and led to serious changes in web application programming. The performance appeared to be far better than it has been before.
In order to support the ECM (enterprise content management) we decided to publish the new features accessible in SharePoint 2013.
Publishing site development through basic client program models
The users are now free to use CSOM (client object model) as well as Java script, Silverlight etc. All site components, elements and know behavior is still intact.
SharePoint application models for taxonomy and applications
Specialists are now free to write any kind of client code as well as server code in applications of SharePoint 2013. The user interface will still be totally functional.
Design, branding and authoring
The whole set of brand new features for .NET development are now accessible in SharePoint. They are considered for design, author, brand, site extension etc.
Trying to fix out what’s new in Java is much like trying to follow the cat – it just goes anywhere it wants, digging into whatever comes on its way. Same goes with Java that appears to be fully integrated in all kinds of mobile, cloud and other related spaces.
What we’re trying to do is to figure out the most visible paths Java is going to take in 2013.
Oracle appeared to be really linked with Java in most possible ways. This means application developers soon will have to cope not only with Java’s bugs, but with Oracle bad features as well. That’s what you shall get ready for right now. Also the credibility of Java has been severely damaged through its lack of security features we all could see in Java 7. This all led to the real bunch of users switching off Java.
We have to admit that usual ways of securing the application like firewalls are not working now. On the other hand more and more people are now using web applications and this is what shall be defended properly. Let’s see the best ways of how to secure the web application.
The strategy will mostly depend on the structure and architecture of the current application. Remember to test every defending system you come up with.
The main course will be the total agnosticism in the programming language.
The most suited case for the application developers and protectors is the well-known DEV522: Defending Web Applications Security Essentials.
Here is the list of main topics to be discussed there:
- Application language configuration
- Application coding errors like SQL Injection and Cross-Site Scripting
- Infrastructure Security
- Server Configuration
- Authentication Bypass
- Web services and related flaws
- Authentication mechanisms
- XPATH and XQUERY languages and injection
- Business logic flaws
- Cross-Site Request Forging
- Web 2.0 and its use of web services
- Protective HTTP Headers
The whole territory of the modern West Coast is well-known for the whole list of seminars with topics like computer Ruby on Rails programming and code-writing. Over 300 computer programmers are coming here regularly in order to get wiser about their specialties. The latest development format discussed there was Ruby in Rails.
The history of the whole program starts over 20 years ago. It’s now used on the popular sites like Twitter, Hulu and Groupon. Due to the growing community the conference took place on the great First Coast as the most attractive one. Usually these discussions took place in the California region.
The organizer of the conference appeared to be Jacksonville Beach computer development firm called Hashrocket. Its websites are primarily working on Ruby on Rails.
Ruby on Rails – popular or not?
The popularity of Ruby on Rails is mostly due to its easiness in use. You do not have to dig through the incomprehensible features to get to your goal. Also most scripts are shared for free.
SAP Insider’s BI Conference appeared to be the great source for the best ideas in the field of business intelligence and its most important trends.
The whole conference took place in March 19-22 and appeared to be the most important meeting for the IT professionals, where they could discuss various problems in their field. The most creative individuals have visited it this time, so needless to say the event was really profitable.
The program content
There were over 130 sessions, that totally covered the most wanted areas of the IT evolution. These were BI implementations and upgrades, SAP HANA, SAP BusinessObjects, Self-service BI, business analytics, date management and integration, reporting etc. There were even more sessions opened for BI 2013 attendants – like the Financials 2013, Admin & Infrastructure 2013 and GRC 2013.
Over the last 5 years VISA and MasterCard appeared to be the most popular payment systems all over the world. To make it all work the common standards were taken into consideration. They evolved for some time until they become the way we know them now.
The main reason for cards’ popularity was the increase of consumer spending in e-commerce and m-commerce. People were looking for payment options.
There are two main problems and needs in the field of mobile application development:
No one can now be surprised with the wireless connection. It’s even more popular today than the standard wired connection, since people tend to stay mobile and in touch with each other all day long. We can now share not only the data, but also are one step away from the full range voice telephony due to 4G technologies.
What are the current problems of mobile web programming?
First of all, they shall become rather quick, since no one wants to wait till the page loads. The current bandwidth has significantly improved compared to what it had been like. Still there are differences between wired and mobile application usability. Also the demands of current users had become rather high and hard to satisfy. It happened mostly due to the multimedia content shared through the mobile connection.
Each user is now free to choose which network to use: an old one or any kind of the new one. The time of usage is very well important too. Still the bandwidth in wired or wireless network doesn’t differ that much nowadays.
Due to various devices people use in order to get to the network, experts advise to make all portals in 4 different variations suitable for the following devices:
High bandwidth for large screen
- High bandwidth for small screen
- Low bandwidth for large screen
- Low bandwidth for small screen
8 ways to test usability
1. Testing paper prototypes
The paper prototypes let you know just how information will look on the screen of the chosen mobile device without actually using the page… and the real screen. All you have is paper and the removable flexible sheet with data.
