How to Eat Crow and Like It!

When "LinDows" first appeared I had signed up for the mailing notifications. I kept hearing and reading about all the great things it would do. A Linux operating system with the ability to run Windows programs. - in my mind this was taking the best of both worlds and merging them. But there was secrecy enveloped around this new OS, followed by brouhaha when MS filed an injuction against this new upstart company. I followed the story and developments for many months, and when nothing was ever delivered as originally stated I became suspicous, downright paranoid, that this was just a marketing ploy by MS. In the February issue of Linux Business Week (Vol. 2, issue 2) I stated flat out that I did not think this was a viable company, and that their stated direction was nothing more than a diversionary tactic to foil the public into thinking MS was against this company. ...

Betting on Java for AJAX

Each day as an AJAX developer seems to bring another helpful revelation: a new tool, a new gadget, a new way to reinvent the browser. But even when I'm confronted with a breakthrough as big as Firebug - the brilliant debugging tool for Firefox - in the back of my mind I'm reminded that the AJAX state-of-the-art is trailing behind the debugging tools that we've had in Java for years. With age comes maturity, and with Java's maturity has come a wealth of development environments, field-tested frameworks, and a rich set of strongly typed APIs. In my current company, we all share a background in enterprise Web development. Our primary goal has always been to take the most innovative user interface technologies and massage them into a form that new programmers can feel comfortable with, no matter the underlying platform. Although I have significant experience in both J... (more)

Big Data Kills 30-Year-Old Market

Data Services Journal If you’ve got simply scads of data – and why wouldn’t you? – it’s doubling every 18 months – and are shuttling it to an application for analysis, you’re doing it wrong. That’s so…so, well, 1980. According to Aster Data, applications need to go to “Big Data,” not the other way around. And to do that the company’s got a massively parallel data-application server that can embed applications inside a massively scalable MPP data warehouse and analyze petabytes of data – or terabytes, if that’s all you’ve got – ultra-fast. Apps are automatically parallelized for scale; users can take their existing Java, C, C++, C#, .NET, Perl and Python applications, MapReduce-enable them and push them down into the data. The widgetry runs on a cluster of commodity boxes. Figure five servers to start although parallelized applications can utilize terabytes of memo... (more)

Will iPad Succeed?

Will iPad succeed? We will know the answer to this question in few months time but I would like to put my neck out and apply one of my theories about why such devices succeed example – iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Palm, Walkman etc. For any new device to become very popular – it needs to satisfy at least one and possibly both the following criteria (elegant design is not one of them): Does it have a new and very responsive user interaction mechanism suitable for the form factor on the device? Does it allow user to perform one important task very effectively which was not easy to do with any of existing devices? Here is list of successful devices: iPhone: Responsive finger touch + Internet surfing experience (history of iPhone) iPod: Click wheel + Ability to easily buy individual song (history of iPod) Blackberry: QWERTY keyboard, side scroll wheel & trackball + Email ...

Fast Track To Hadoop

As a former enterprise CTO and current technology watcher, I was struck at the incredible brilliance of yesterday’s announcement by Dell and Cloudera. In a move that will help enterprises of all sizes serve a very wide range of missions, those two organizations have announced a new relationship that will enable something that has never really existed before. Enterprises can now buy a Hadoop-centric solution that has been validated from end-to-end and is available from a single vendor. And they can do this on systems that have hardware designed for performing Big Data analytics. Since their formation, Cloudera has been working to bring clarity and unity and support to the entire stack of software around Apache Hadoop. A key benefit of the Cloudera Distribution Including Apache Hadoop (CDH) is that it makes enterprise support in production environments possible. Every ... (more)

Stuff and Nonsense

What an exciting time in the land of Java late October through early November proved to be. During this time The Middleware Company released its now infamous report pitting J2EE against .NET. Why infamous? Well, this particular report suggested that .NET was indeed faster when running Sun's reference PetStore application. But don't despair, as we show in this issue, the benchmark was fundamentally flawed and should never have seen the light of day. I encourage you to read Rickard Öberg's analysis in this issue that shows that The Middleware Company's J2EE implementation of PetStore never stood a fair chance against the Microsoft-optimized PetShop.NET. Aren't you getting sick of all this propaganda? I know I am. At the end of the day, comparing .NET with J2EE is complete and utter nonsense. It's like comparing SQL to Oracle. Makes no sense. .NET is a full-fledged end-... (more)

Umm, About That $100m Microsoft Funneled to SCO

A piece of juicy compromising e-mail written by a SCO consultant to SCOsource VP Chris Sontag and SCO CFO Bob Bench last October suggesting that Microsoft had quietly funneled $86 million to SCO and that it was good for at least $106 million before tapping all possibilities happened to turn up on open source philosopher Eric Raymond's web site Thursday. Eric made it part of his Microsoft-embarrassing internal documents collection and dubbed it Halloween X. (See www.opensource.org.) He says he got it from an "anonymous whistleblower inside SCO," which is odd because, given the timing and other little niceties, one would be tempted to think that it was a bit of SCO discovery that somehow got loose from IBM. Oh, yeah, Eric is a sometime consultant for IBM and his anti-SCO credentials are impeccable. Right at the top of the kinda disjointed e-mail the consultant, one Mik... (more)

An OO Approach to War

With the advent of ColdFusion components (CFCs), introduced in ColdFusion MX version 6.0 and greatly improved in version 6.1, ColdFusion MX allows CF programmers to enter the mainstream of object-oriented (OO) programming. With the overwhelming success of the J2EE and the .NET platforms, OO has become the dominant paradigm for building commercial software and gaining a thorough, working knowledge of it is essential to any programmer's long-term career success. In this article, we'll build a simple version of the child's card game, "War" ­ hopefully learning something about OO design and implementation along the way. Here's a refresher on the game: two players each receive a card. The cards are then compared to see which has a greater value (the ordering of suits is ignored for this game). The player with the higher card is the winner and the game continues until th... (more)
