AngularJS Services

O'Reilly News: Java - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 17:29

This book provides you with the skills and best practices needed to create AngularJS services. It starts with the fundamentals of what services are and their role in a typical AngularJS application. You will walk through the development of a real-world application using services across the various application layers and then move on to create services that provide cross-cutting concerns such as messaging, logging, and authentication.

Next, the book covers services that provide data access showing you how to interact with external cloud-based data services and how to cache data on the client to reduce network latency. The book then shows you how to write services that leverage other cloud-based services to create mashups and include functionality in your application without writing a lot of code.

You will also learn how to create business logic objects, rules engines, and finite state machines, which can be used to provide business logic for your application.

This book is a practical guide filled with real-world examples that will help you discover the best practices of the AngularJS framework, covering its most important concepts such as directives, expressions, filters, and modules and guiding you through the steps of building your very own web application.

You will start by learning how to create reusable components with directives, experiencing an expressive way of developing software. Then we will move on to cover data handling, and you will learn how to use the various features of the AngularJS framework to accomplish any challenge related to presenting, transforming, and validating data on a user's interface.

After that, we will explore the secrets of the dependency injection mechanism available in AngularJS, bringing reuse and testability to your application by decoupling the layers. The book will also cover the best practices of using the framework and how to automate the test and the project's workflow.

@DevOpsSummit | Pillars of Modern Enterprise Using Open Source [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 00:15
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies. This model makes use of Composable Enterprise framework put forward by Jonathan Murray of WMG.

Unpredictable #Cloud Traffic Can Cast a Shadow on a Metro Network

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 22:45
User obsession with digital information shows no signs of abating. As users create, share, and consume content, network traffic volume goes up, growing an average of 30 to 50 percent annually.[1] The increased adoption of cloud technology has made round-the-clock access to content easy. However, connecting users to content is not just about volume. Bandwidth is driven by applications, which have changed how, when, and where bandwidth is created, used, generated, and originated, making it far less predictable and much harder to manage. The following eight examples show how unpredictable traffic impacts the metro network.

@ThingsExpo | GIS & #IoT Sensors Deliver Innovations for Utilities

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 17:45
I love sensors. In my opinion we write too little about the role sensors play in the whole Internet of Things discussion. Sensors are what measure things in the physical world and converts the information to digital. This process is a key component of digital transformation which enables algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning to be implemented to help us more effectively manage our environments. They are our eyes, ears, nose, etc., in remote places capturing activities, events and behaviors that help us eliminate blind spots and that give us situational awareness.

@CloudExpo | Embrace #DBaaS to Speed Up Mobile App Development

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 08/26/2014 - 14:00
As enterprises work to rapidly embrace the mobile revolution, both for their workforce and to engage more deeply with their customers, the pressure is on for IT to support the tools needed by their application developers. Mobile application developers are working with a massive variety of technologies and platforms, but one trend that stands out is the rapid adoption of NoSQL database engines and the use of Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) platforms and services to run them. Gartner has predicted that by 2017, 20% of enterprises will have their own internal mobile app store, meaning that enterprises are deploying both commercial and custom applications to their workforce at increasing speeds. There’s no denying the massive growth in mobile applications within the enterprise.

@Innodisk_Corp | Efficiencies for #Cloud Hardware At @CloudExpo

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 08/24/2014 - 22:00
Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
