i-Technology Viewpoint: We Must Get Beyond "Binary Extremes," Says Sun's COO

He's been doing it again. Blogging, that is. And, as usual, Sun's president and COO zeroes in on the main issue that makes the software industry the endlessly fascinating place it is, anno 2004, namely the choice between proprietary and open source solutions. It's not an either/or choice, Schwartz contends, and refers to a surprising moment that happened at Sun's JavaOne developer conference earlier this year. "A bunch of friends joined us for a discussion on the open sourcing of Java," writes Schwartz in the latest entry in his widely-read blog: "Among the luminaries present was Brian Behlendorf, who opened his statements by asking what I'm sure he felt was a question with a popular answer, 'How many of you work on an open source project?' I expected to see a flurry of hands, and I'm sure he did, too. Neither of us saw hands go up." Schwartz cites this as just one ex... (more)

Enterprise Mashups: The New Face of Your SOA

Enterprise mashups, one of the hottest Web 2.0 technologies today, could impact your SOA in a very positive way. But are you ready for them? How does an SOA architect prepare for this dynamic technology? Do you know what a mashup is and what value it brings to an enterprise? Can you distinguish between a consumer mashup and an enterprise mashup? Equally important, do you understand the difference between a mashup and popular enterprise technologies like business intelligence, data warehouses, portals, and the Enterprise Service Bus? Mashups are not exactly new. Analysts and pundits alike have been talking about "composite applications" since the birth of the Internet. Today there are thousands of consumer-focused mashups.

XML Schemas in an Object-Oriented Framework

XML Schemas provide the grammar and constraints of XML documents. Given the increasing prevalence of XML as a data and command transport format in enterprise software systems across industries, it's important to have a methodology when designing the structure of the XML you will create. In this article, I will discuss how to leverage established object-oriented frameworks to design XML Schemas. The three tenets of object-oriented design - encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism - are examined along with emerging design patterns and when to apply them. Since industry consortia are creating industry XML standards, I will also discuss how to use and extend standards for your business needs. Finally, there is a brief overview of how to use Unified Modeling Language (UML) to follow the best practices described in this article. Case Study: BigPharma To illustrate, I'... (more)

PowerBuilder Cover Story: Introducing Enable

What do you do if suddenly your application has to be used in another country, or even in different areas of the same nation? English and French are spoken in Canada; Italian, French, and German are spoken in Italy; and Switzerland has four official languages. These days, service requirements dictate that software has to speak the language of the end user, who may even be a member of one of the growing ethnic minority groups. As a PowerBuilder developer, you can now use Enable to make your applications multilingual. This solution allows you to maintain complete control over your executable at runtime, and without any duplication of the source code. End users and technical support personnel alike may well benefit from your application's new ability to change the active language dynamically. Enable, which tackles the technical and practical barriers to the development ... (more)
