What is SPARQL?
by David Wood, Marsha Zaidman, Luke Ruth, and Michael Hausenblas, authors of Linked Data
SPARQL is the query language for RDF and Linked Data. SPARQL is to RDF data as the Structured Query Language (SQL) is to a relational database. SPARQL's name is nicely pronounceable and sounds interesting and fresh. SPARQL is interesting and fresh. This article, based on chapter 5 from...
Six Ways You're Using Responsive Design Wrong
by Matthew Carver, author of The Responsive Web
Staying on the cutting edge of of web design can be tough, and oftentimes you only learn from making mistakes. Making mistakes is sometimes the best way to know that you are breaking new ground. In this article, Matthew Carver, the author of The Responsive Web, gives a few tips that his experience in...
According to research, most complex report development work can be simplified by performing the data source computation in advance. For example, find out the clients who bought all products in the given list, and then present the details of these clients.
In developing such reports, it is the “computation” part and not the “presentation” part that brings about major difficulties. In which stage...
In report development, we may need to present the data from multiple databases in one report, such as data from MSSQL database for CRM and Oracle database for ERP. If the reporting tool like iReport only supports single data source, then we need to consolidate the multiple data sources into a single data source.
The Crystal, BIRT, and other so-called reporting tools for multiple data source can...
In the process of Java development, programmers will come across data computation. But Java alone is not convenient to handle such computation. SQL has limited impact on improving the computational efficiency for Java. In this case, a new way is needed.
In the process of Java development, programmers may come across complex set operations and Java alone is not powerful enough to easily handle such problem. Dynamic calculation script is good solution. In this post, I'll introduce how to conduct such computation in a simple way.
Acteur is a pattern for pipelining work - a little DI functional goodness for Java. I might have been speaking Swahili when I wrote about Acteur last month. So here's a simple explanation of the design pattern behind it, with a simple sample project.
The data computation layer of Java aims to reduce the coupling between data persistent layer and the application layer and shift the computational workload from them. In this survey, 5 data computation layers of Hibernate, esProc, SQL, iBATIS, and R language are tested and compared on the basis of the below metrics: maturity, low coupling, scripting, integration, UI friendliness, performance, complex computation, support for big data, non-database computation, cross-database computation, and convenience for debugging.
Big data will fall into the pitfall of failure. But why big data will fall into the pitfall of failure? It is because the current big data only provides the solution for data storage and query. It lacks a good solution for business analysis to enhance the competitiveness, which is the most crucial. How to avoid the pitfall?
Creating a JavaFX 2 (or should I say FX8) application can be a time consuming task. We all got used to powerful frameworks helping us creating such applications based on Swing (NetBeans Platform) or SWT (Eclipse). There even was an attempt at getting this standardized in Java for Swing - JAF anyone? So where is such an application framework based on JavaFX 2/8, which leverages all the nice things from Java7 and 8?
Due to a painting regression in JXPanel for Synth-based Look and Feels, we are releasing a regression fix. The new files should appear in Maven Central soon.
A quick, hopefully readable analysis of this week's security exploit and fix over at my new blog
The Foundations of Mobile First Design
by Matthew Carver, author of The Responsive Web
In this article from The Responsive Web, author Matthew Carver opens up a discussion of how to build a site for a mobile or small-screen device using a graphic design program, such as Photoshop.
Building a site in its smallest iteration first affords the designer a lot of opportunities. By starting in a...
I have a new blog at http://timboudreau.com - and there are new NetBeans plugins for node.js, source code for the NetBeans VNC modules, plus a nifty Netty-based framework for asnchronous web apps, and more.
