WebRTC, Internet of Things and API Gateways | @ThingsExpo [#IoT #WebRTC]

Defining Web 3.0 and Developing the Fastest Enterprise Mobility Apps I value a strong opinion.  Especially when the opinionated is an expert and willing to stand up and place a flag in the sand.  In this article, my ambitious friend, programming guru, gamer, colleague, bona fide geek and mobility expert Peter Rogers shares his opinions on the meaning of Web 3.0 and how it will impact mobile application development and the enterprise.  While he is English and prone to use words like whilst, that should not be held against him. I have two ambitions in life: to be the first person to define Web 3.0 in a meaningful way; and to be able to reform Atomic Kitten to sing at my next birthday. Only one of these is achievable so here goes. The Web is changing quite drastically and there are ten key factors that define the next "Web" hereafter as Web 3.0: The dropping of legacy b... (more)

Three Steps to Build a Killer WebSocket App with JavaFX

As part of my prep for the talk we give at JavaOne 2012, I built a WebSocket app using JavaFX 2.2 front-end with NetBeans 7.2 and the brand new JavaFX Scene Builder 1.0. The tools were a pleasant surprise, they were pretty straight-forward to use. Most of the Oracle tutorials were helpful too, although I couldn’t find signs of an active and extensive JavaFX developer community out there. The app I wanted to build consumes the same data source as the lightning fast Kaazing portfolio demo. This video demonstrates what it looks like in the development environment, as well as running, side-by-side with the aforementioned JavaScript implementation of the Kaazing portfolio demo. Step 1 – Creating a JavaFX App First, I created a new project: JavaFX > JavaFX FXML Application. Step 2 – Defining the UI Then, using the new JavaFX Scene Builder, I created the grid layout I wante... (more)

The People's Republic of Cloud Computing

I just got back from an action-packed week of meetings in Shanghai, China. Shanghai is one of the more exciting cities I've visited recently as they prepare for the World Expo in May as well as the upcoming Chinese New Year festivities. As a city Shanghai is a bustling modern metropolis. A city that in a little over thirty years has gone from a small village to mega city of more then 30 million people. In talking with the people I met in Shanghai I quickly came to realize that like myself, most people in Shanghai were not originally from there, most had recently moved there from other areas of China for "economic opportunities" the city now offers. Looking around the city you'll notice a level of wealth on par or better than most western cities. In a nutshell the reason I found myself in Shanghai was for the very reason the Chinese are now pouring into the the city, ... (more)

Intel & Nokia to Create a Universal Mobile OS

Wireless Technology Magazine on Ulitzer Intel, the semiconductor giant, and Nokia, the mighty handset maker, have united to create a universal widget operating system good for phones, laptops, netbooks, tablets, vehicle entertainment systems, Internet-connected TVs and other still-unimagined devices out of their existing Linux platforms - an open source combination of Intel's netbook-oriented Moblin and Nokia's smartphone-fancying Maemo. They're calling the thing MeeGo and the Linux Foundation will be hosting the project under Intel's Imad Sousou and Nokia's Valtteri Halla. The widgetry, due out next quarter, will support both Intel's Atom processor and rival ARM chips - though Nokia doesn't support Atom - and go up against Google's x86- and ARM-supporting Chrome OS and everybody else in the game. It's anticipated that MeeGo could eventually support other architecture... (more)

Intel Clearly the Comeback Kid

The record-setting $1.45 billion antitrust fine that the European Commission slapped Intel with in May for AMD abuse soured the company's Q2 results causing it to post an extraordinary loss of $398 million, or seven cents a share. Otherwise, under the present economic circumstances, Intel did pretty darn good. Revenues totaled $8 billion, up 12% sequentially and better than analysts expected. If the regulators hadn't stuck their hand in its pocket it would have earned a billion dollars, 18 cents a share, more than double what the pundits thought. In a canned statement, CEO Paul Otellini, who alone called a bottom in April, was quoted as saying, "Intel's second-quarter results reflect improving conditions in the PC market segment with our strongest first- to second-quarter growth since 1988 and a clear expectation for a seasonally stronger second half." Ahead of the ... (more)

Game-Changing Innovations and the Evolving SOA Appliance

What problems can SOA appliances solve? What is "service mediation"? Where is the market going, with new trends like virtualization, cloud computing, and new security paradigms? During the last several years, SOA hardware appliances have emerged as a popular way to deliver XML acceleration and web service gateway security. However, recent data center virtualization, multi-core optimization, and application portfolio reorganization trends are forcing a shift to the flexibility of software appliances. In addition, appliance feature improvements are enabling a leap forward into a broader range of usage models. "Virtualizing hardware appliances is pretty tough, it's pretty much impossible," says Intel’s Blake Dournaee in this informative and forward-looking webinar currently screening on SYS-CON.TV. Co-presenting with Oracle’s Vikas Jain, the webinar discusses three gam... (more)
