Star Trek Technology for Java3Dw66利来手机充值ios娱乐

The Star Trek universe has inspired many technology ideas but I'm disappointed I don't have a transporter yet. One Star Trek technology that has been available for sometime is the particle system. No, this is not an exotic propulsion system for your flying car. The particle system was invented to animate the Genesis effect in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. While the Genesis device was used to transform a barren planet into one full of life, we can adopt this technology for more modest effects in Java3D. In the Beginning In previous articles, we've focused on creating planetary surfaces with Java3D. One challenging area of graphics programming is rendering irregular or ill-defined objects like clouds, smoke, or fireworks. William Reeves faced that challenge when Lucasfilm was asked to create a planetary creation effect called the Genesis effect for Star Trek II: Wra... (more)

Marc Fleury's Viewpoint: Enterprise Java Made Easyw66利来手机充值注册app

Simplicity is the key driving force behind the success of Java. When Dr. Gosling invented the Java language in 1995, the goal was to make life easier for software developers. Java's elegant language design, simple API, and vendor-independence have made it the platform of choice for many developers. However, as Java evolves to address enterprise needs for scalability and flexibility, developer friendliness has taken a back seat. The complex programming model in EJB 2.1 and J2EE 1.4 has hindered Java's adoption, and it's the root cause for many slow-performing and error-prone Java applications. Fortunately, help is on the way. The upcoming EJB 3.0 and J2EE 1.5 servers greatly simplify enterprise Java development without compromising scalability and flexibility. Unlike many other third-party commercial and open source J2EE alternatives, EJB 3.0 is completely standard-... (more)

A Multi-Core Optimized Software Appliancew66利来手机充值检测二维码

In the enterprise IT environment today, modern middleware technologies make it easier to expose existing or new business applications as sets of services. However, with the mashup of cloud-based services and enterprise data center services, the visibility of how a service created today will be used in the future gets murkier. This is because it's difficult to predict how a service will be consumed over long periods of time and by which consumers, and further how the service may be integrated with other services or legacy applications to create new composite services. It also remains a challenge to architect services in such a way that service upgrades don't affect consumers unpredictably. The hype of "just create services with an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and you'll have the benefits of a service architecture such as lower costs and software reuse" typically lea... (more)

JDJ Asks...IBMw66利来手机充值线路代理

Don Ferguson is IBM's lead for the EJB and J2EE specification evolution. His work has focused on CORBA-based SM solutions and frameworks, and evolved into an effort to define frameworks and system structure for CORBA-based object transaction monitors. The early design and prototype of these systems produced the IBM Component Broker and WebSphere family of products. JDJ readers asked him the following questions about IBM and Java. : Is IBM investigating the option of pushing SWT through the JCP? If so, what specifics can you give? : We don't have any plans to submit SWT to the JCP; Sun wouldn't allow this. Actually, we've positioned SWT as a technology to create advanced visual interfaces for the creation of compelling development tools. While we've seen SWT being used by some subscribers to the Eclipse toolkit, this was not our original inte... (more)

How to Go from Geek to Managerw66利来手机充值官网平台

You're six-feet, 190 pounds and can type System.out.println faster than most people can say AJAX. You're a person who dreams about the Milwaukee Brewers winning the World Series and the correct data structure to be used when talking about a baseball player. You've spent five years of your life writing Java code and leading Java development teams. You consider yourself an expert in Swing, Struts, XML, and XSL-FO and feel comfortable talking about any other buzzword in the Java world such as JSF, Portal, and AJAX. You've had experience as development lead on a team with anywhere from three to seven people where Java applications were rolled into production well within the scheduled deadline. Now you have received a management position on an internal Java development team. Where do you start? What things do you look at from day one? What's your role going to be as a ma... (more)

It happens to JSP developers and so on. Is it time for us to re-consider this language limit? ... (more)

IBM's Steve Mills on the Recession: "IT Remains the Core Transforming Technology...for Hundreds of Years to Come"w66利来手机充值娱乐

"How could the economic downturn impact on customers and the industry?" IBM's Steve Mills was asked this week. Mills, who is Senior Vice President and Group Executive of IBM's Software Group, was blunt: "There is more uncertainty at this time that most of us have experienced in our lifetimes," he conceded, before adding: "Nonetheless, Information Technology continues to provide the ability to operate a business more efficiently." Mills was speaking during a roundtable discussion at IBM's "Information on Demand 2008" event in Las Vegas, Nevada. He continued: "IT is the core transforming technology of the second half of the twentieth century and it will be for hundreds of years to come. Volume, speed - none of those things can be handled by human beings, we all understand this. We need the computer as an essential tool in order to help us manage things for greater effe... (more)

Tennent's Correspondence Principlew66利来手机充值代理娱乐

Certain elements in the Java and JavaScript communities have been buzzing about Tennent's Correspondence Principle. I have heard it described as the ability to replace an expression with a function, so that expression means the same thing as (function () { return expression; })() There are some things that can't be enclosed that way, such as return statements and break statements, which the advocates of Tennent's Correspondence Principle (or TCP) claim is a symptom of a bad smell. Yow! Language design is already difficult enough without having to cope with olfactory hallucinations. So to better understand the problem, I bought a copy of Tennent's 1981 book, Principles of Programming Languages. It turns out that the Correspondence Principle is descriptive, not prescriptive. He uses it to analyze the (by now forgotten) Pascal programming language, showing a correspond... (more)

Computers Are Just Tools; Computer Science Is About Peoplew66利来手机充值地址官方

In some sense computer science is like geometry. When the art of measuring crop fields was under development by the ancient Mediterranean’s it was most naturally coined geometry – literally meaning measurement of the Earth. Geometry was slowly developed by many scholars to solve a wide range of practical applications. This includes, but is certainly not limited to, forecasting expected crop yields, division of land into parcels, and even to build some of the Seven Wonders of the World as present in classical antiquity. Later on, Arabic and European scholars expanded the notion of geometry to include the spatial relationship of any abstract figure and its properties. However, this also meant that the name, geometry, no longer fitted its original meaning, since abstract figures don’t have to involve dirt, such as non-Euclidian objects (like the Norwegian coast line)....

Book Review: Java The Complete Reference, 8th Edition w66利来手机充值检测官方

This is a great place to start learning Java. I think the book is good for beginners to start learning Java, as well as great reference for those experienced with Java. The book does not use an IDE to create, compile, and run the programs. It uses javac and java commands to compile and run. I used both the SDK command lines and the IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition to compile and run the programs. Both worked fine, but I also have an interest in learning to use IntelliJ IDEA. The book covers the Java language, the Java Library, Software Development with Java Beans, Swing, Servlets, and ends with building 2 sample applications. The book covers Data Types and Operators, Control Statements, Classes, Objects, Methods, Packages, Interfaces, Exception Handling, Inheritance, I/O, Multithreading, Enumerations, Autoboxing, Static Import, Annotations, Generics, Applets, Events,...

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
