This article describes how to use Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), the amazing
new graphic format, with CFML to create dynamic charts and diagrams. SVG is
the W3C standard format for scalable graphics based on XML (see www.W3C.org).
Yes, that's right, graphics based on XML; for example, see the following
This SVG snippet renders a vector graphic 250x300 pixels holding both a
red-filled circle with a radius of 50 pixels at the coordinates 120, 120, and
an opacity level of 0.7, and a smaller blue circle. Save this snippet as
test.svg and embed it in an HTML page using the following code:
This article critically evaluates the role of XML binding frameworks play in
the context of service-oriented architecture (SOA) platforms, and it also
provides an objective evaluation of the popular XML binding frameworks in a
XML binding refers to the mapping of XML documents to/from any suitable
internal representation (e.g., object-based representation) that is
understandable by the underlying system, and in the process facilitating easy
and intuitive access to the data in XML documents. In a J2EE context, this
translates to an easier and logically meaningfu... (more)
I am sure that most of you have heard about or have had a chance to use
Google Maps. It's a great service and I was really impressed by the
responsiveness of the application and the ease with which users could drag
and zoom maps from a Web browser. It has in many ways heralded the arrival of
development in the days to come.
What makes the service even better is the availability of the Google Maps API
(Application Programming Interface) as a free Beta service. The API allows
developers to embed Google Map... (more)
In the parts 1 and 2 of this article, we demonstrated how to download and
install Maven 2, how to install the Maven 2 plugin for Eclipse, and how to go
about setting up a project directory structure using Maven 2. We used a
simple use case for displaying employee details on the Web given an employee
ID, but deliberately made the design a bit complex by introducing design
concepts such as XML binding, EJBs, and JCA connectors to illustrate a few of
the many features offered by Maven. In this final installment of the article,
we continue with the remaining modules in our example an... (more)
With MOSS 2007, I often got asked what order do I install these solution
packages in. Oftentimes, it was critical that they get installed in a
particular order. With features, we have had the ability to set
dependencies, but we really didn’t have anything like that for solution
packages. Well, I haven’t heard people talking about this new feature
yet, but we can in fact set solution dependencies in the manifest.xml file.
The way it works is that it checks to see if a dependent solution has already
been deployed on your farm (or site collection for sandbox solutions).
It's every geek's dream to be able to write such a message.
Tim Bray, Canadian technologist extraordinary, has finally had enough of
being dubbed "the inventor of XML" - and accordingly wrote to a Slashdot
thread yesterday to say:

The Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a general-purpose specification for creating custom markup languages. It is classified as an extensible language, because it allows the user to define the mark-up elements. XML's purpose is to aid information systems in sharing structured data, especially via the Internet, to encode documents, and to serialize data; in the last context, it compares with text-based serialization languages such as JSON and YAML.
Cloud Computing & All That
It Touches In One Location Cloud Computing - Big Data - Internet of Things
SDDC - WebRTC - DevOps
Cloud computing is become a norm within enterprise IT.
The competition among public cloud providers is red hot, private cloud continues to grab increasing shares of IT budgets, and hybrid cloud strategies are beginning to conquer the enterprise IT world.
Big Data is driving dramatic leaps in resource requirements and capabilities, and now the Internet of Things promises an exponential leap in the size of the Internet and Worldwide Web.
The world of SDX now encompasses Software-Defined Data Centers (SDDCs) as the technology world prepares for the Zettabyte Age.
Add the key topics of WebRTC and DevOps into the mix, and you have three days of pure cloud computing that you simply cannot miss.
Delegates will leave Cloud Expo with dramatically increased understanding the entire scope of the entire cloud computing spectrum from storage to security.
Cloud Expo - the world's most established event - offers a vast selection of 130+ technical and strategic Industry Keynotes, General Sessions, Breakout Sessions, and signature Power Panels. The exhibition floor features 100+ exhibitors offering specific solutions and comprehensive strategies. The floor also features two Demo Theaters that give delegates the opportunity to get even closer to the technology they want to see and the people who offer it.
Attend Cloud Expo. Craft your own custom experience. Learn the latest from the world's best technologists. Find the vendors you want and put them to the test.
