The Cassandra's data base is a NOSQL column family's oriented, is a data base made to work of high performance, scalability and fault tolerant. In your new version, it gets some improvements like Cassandra Query Language third version, CQL 3.0 with storage with collections and key complex.

As a developer, when you are building and/or designing a Java application; the first (or one of the first) question you might ask is... "What are the objects?" This seems to be a very simple question. But it is not. There probably is no single "right" answer to this question. Nevertheless, careful consideration given to this question will contribute to a good start to one's Java development...

When we started building our first Java application, at my company Amway Corp, many years ago; we learned our first lesson. In spite of all the formal training we received, in spite of all the literature at our disposal; we still needed help with our Java development on a regular basis. Where would this assistance come from? At the time, we had no in-house Java subject-matter experts. What we...

Learning Java (or any programming language) can be a great challenge. Any group of developers, learning Java, will bring with them a variety of backgrounds and experiences. In our case, our first Java project began with developers that had COBOL language experience. Our second Java project, began with developers that had RPG language experience. Even though COBOL and RPG don't "look" like Java,...

Tuning Java code presents many challenges and addresses several goals. One of these goals is to make the application "run faster". Recently, our end-users were getting multiple-second response times from our web application's home page. This was unacceptable. We were asked to see what we can do to make the web application "run faster". We began by looking at the usual suspects... database access...

One of the biggest challenges facing us during the creation of our first Java application was learning to develop with the Java programming language. We were concerned about how well our team of developers would learn and adapt to Java. Since Java was an object-oriented programming language, we had object-oriented concepts to learn as well. Our first Java training class was titled, "Developing...

Assembling a team of Java developers can be a challenging task. Getting the right people together requires a combination of luck, skill, and plenty of patience. When someone new joins your team, they could also be new to your company. Over the years, we have conducted many job interviews of Java developer candidates wishing to join our team and company. Our Java job interview format is simple and...

Our team of Java developers consists of people with various backgrounds and skill levels. Everyone has a role and is assigned tasks based on that role. Team members are expected to know basic programming concepts, core Java and core J2EE. In addition; database access, web-browser, client/server concepts are required as well. It didn't take long for our team to realize there was a lot more to know...

Java Desktop

Sebastiano Armeli-Battana is the author of the successful 'MVC Applies to JavaScript' eBook. We thought we'd get to know a little more about the author! 1. For someone that’s new to the JavaScript sector, can you explain why they should use MVC? I would say that a JS noob should use MVC, just because it’s widely spread pattern used across different programming languages. I think they would enjoy...

So I haven't posted a blog here since 2009 - and haven't work for Sun or Oracle since early 2010. It's been a wild few years working on a number of things as diverse as giant clouds to control software for cameras which go down oil wells. And I have a new blog at timboudreau.com, naturally using a blog engine I wrote myself (I gave myself a project to learn node.js). Currently I'm architecting...

Natural User Interaction with Drag-and-Drop by Rob Crowther, author of Hello! HTML5 and CSS3 The HTML5 spec is ground-breaking in many ways, but one of the key ways is that it specifies both the syntax of the HTML markup and the APIs you should use to manipulate the document with JavaScript. In this article from Hello! HTML5 & CSS3, author Rob Crowther discusses simulating desktop-like...

Java Tools

One of the first things we did as we began to learn about Java was to create our own library of Java books. Every member of the development team was given the chance (and funding) to build their own collection of books. In time, these book collections became a sort of "comfort blanket" for the developers. In addition to being a valuable source of reference material, these collections act as a...

If you're not familiar with MSRP, it's an open source library that implements the IETF's RFC 4975 (that is, the Message Session Relay Protocol).
