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:

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
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)

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
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, 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
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)

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
"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.
