Oracle doesn't want Java EE any more

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 15:00:00 -0700

Oracle wants to end its leadership in the development of enterprise Java and is looking for an open source foundation to take on the role.

The company said today that the upcoming Java EE (Enterprise Edition) 8 presents an opportunity to rethink how the platform is developed. Although development is done via open source with community participation, the current Oracle-led process is not seen agile, flexible, or open enough. ”We believe that moving Java EE technologies to an open source foundation may be the right next step, to adopt more agile processes, implement more flexible licensing and change the governance process,” Oracle said in a statement.

Over the past year, machine learning has gone mainstream with a bang. The “sudden” arrival of machine learning isn’t fueled by cheap cloud environments and ever more powerful GPU hardware alone. It is also due to an explosion of open source frameworks designed to abstract away the hardest parts of machine learning and make its techniques available to a broad class of developers.

The most popular IDEs? Visual Studio and Eclipse

Wed, 16 Aug 2017 11:59:00 -0700

Microsoft’s Visual Studio leads the way in desktop IDE (integrated development environment) popularity, with Eclipse close behind, according to PYPL’s August index of IDE popularity. Android Studio was a distant third.

Visual Studio takes a 22.4 percent share in this month’s index. Eclipse follows with a 20.38 percent share. Much further back was Android Studio, with a 9.87 percent share. “It’s surprising how a couple of IDEs have about half the popularity,” PYPL’s Pierre Carbonelle said.

Web services in Java SE, Part 2

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 13:27:00 -0700

JAX-WS supports SOAP-based Web services. Part 2 of this four-part series on Java SE Web services defines a SOAP-based units-conversion Web service, builds and then verifies this Web service locally via the default lightweight HTTP server (discussed in Part 1), interprets the service's WSDL document, and accesses the service from a simple client.

Defining a units-conversion web service

The units-conversion Web service, which I've named UC, consists of four functions for converting between centimeters and inches and between degrees Fahrenheit and degrees Celsius. Although this example could be architected as a single Java class, I've chosen to follow best practices by architecting it as a Java interface and a Java class. Listing 1 presents the Web service's UC interface.

What’s new in Java EE 8

Mon, 14 Aug 2017 03:00:00 -0700

Although Oracle has been mostly quiet lately about the progress of its enterprise Java overhaul, that is likely to change soon with the impending arrival of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 8, better known as Java EE 8.

The upgrade retools enterprise Java for cloud and microservices environments. A vote on the Java Community Process specification for Java EE 8 is under way and is due to be completed on August 21. Java EE 8, the official specification states, is about simplification while extending the range of the platform to accommodate emerging technologies in the cloud and web. The specification also emphasizes HTML5 and HTTP/2 support.

Java 101: Datastructures and algorithms in Java, Part 1

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 07:56:00 -0700

Datastructures and algorithms are essential to computer science, which is the study of data, its representation in memory, and its transformation from one form to another. In programming, we use datastructures to store and organize data, and we use algorithms to manipulate the data in those structures. The more you understand about datastructures and algorithms, the more efficient your Java programs will be.

This article launches a three-part series introducing datastructures and algorithms. In Part 1, you'll learn what a datastructure is and how datastructures are classified. You'll also learn what an algorithm is, how algorithms are represented, and how to use time and space complexity functions to compare similar algorithms.

3 open source projects that make Kubernetes easier

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 03:00:00 -0700

Clearly, Kubernetes is an elegant solution to an important problem. Kubernetes allows us to run containerized applications at scale without drowning in the details of balancing loads, networking containers, ensuring high availability for apps, or managing updates or rollbacks. So much complexity is hidden safely away. 

But using Kubernetes is not without its challenges. Getting up and running with Kubernetes takes some work, and many of the management and maintenance tasks around Kubernetes are downright thorny. 

As active as Kubernetes development is, we can’t expect the main project to solve every problem immediately. Fortunately, the community around Kubernetes is finding solutions to those problems that, for one reason or another, the Kubernetes team hasn’t zeroed in on.

What is machine learning? Software derived from data

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 03:00:00 -0700

You’ve probably encountered the term “machine learning” more than a few times lately. Often used interchangeably with artificial intelligence, machine learning is in fact a subset of AI, both of which can trace their roots to MIT in the late 1950s.

Machine learning is something you probably encounter every day, whether you know it or not. The Siri and Alexa voice assistants, Facebook’s and Microsoft’s facial recognition, Amazon and Netflix recommendations, the technology that keeps self-driving cars from crashing into things – all are a result of advances in machine learning.

How to get started with machine learning

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 03:00:00 -0700

Machine learning is still a pipe dream for most organizations, with Gartner estimating that fewer than 15 percent of enterprises successfully get machine learning into production. Even so, companies need to start experimenting now with machine learning so that they can build it into their DNA.

Easy? Not even close, says Ted Dunning, chief application architect at MapR, but “anybody who thinks that they can just buy magic bullets off the shelf has no business” buying machine learning technology in the first place.

“Unless you already know about machine learning and how to bring it to production, you probably don't understand the complexities that you are about to add to your companies life cycle. On the other hand, if you have done this before, well-done machine learning can definitely be a really surprisingly large differentiator,” Dunning says.

21 technologies transforming software development

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 03:00:00 -0700

A long time ago, developers wrote assembly code that ran fast and light. On good days, they had enough money in their budget to hire someone to toggle all those switches on the front of the machine to input their code. On bad days, they flipped the switches themselves. Life was simple: The software loaded data from memory, did some arithmetic, and sent it back. That was all.

Machine learning comes to your browser via JavaScript

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 03:00:00 -0700

There’s now a JavaScript library for executing neural networks inside a webpage, using the hardware-accelerated graphics API available in modern web browsers.

Developed by a team of MIT graduate students, TensorFire can run TensorFlow-style machine learning models on any GPU, without requiring the GPU-specific middleware typically needed by machine learning libraries such as Keras-js.

TensorFire is another step towards making machine learning available to the broadest possible audience, using hardware and software people are already likely to possess, and via advances in how accurate model predictions can be served with a fraction of the resources previously needed.

The best JavaScript testing tools for React

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 03:00:00 -0700

Several years into widespread JavaScript fatigue, the front-end ecosystem isn’t getting any smaller or simpler. The world of front-end testing is also expanding, and the tools tend to be opinionated from framework to framework. This is sort of a double-edged sword. One the one hand, picking a framework narrows the testing options we have to choose from. On the other hand, testing stacks are less portable across frameworks, so we may have to learn a whole new set of tools with each new project.

All your streaming data are belong to Kafka

Mon, 31 Jul 2017 03:00:00 -0700

Apache Kafka is on a roll. Last year it registered a 260 percent jump in developer popularity, as Redmonk’s Fintan Ryan highlights, a number that has only ballooned since then as IoT and other enterprise demands for real-time, streaming data become common. Hatched at LinkedIn, Kafka’s founding engineering team spun out to form Confluent, which has been a primary developer of the Apache project ever since.

But not the only one. Indeed, given the rising importance of Kafka, more companies than ever are committing code, including Eventador, started by Kenny Gorman and Erik Beebe, both co-founders of ObjectRocket (acquired by Rackspace). Whereas ObjectRocket provides the MongoDB database as a service, Eventador offers a fully managed Kafka service, further lowering the barriers to streaming data.
