IBM developerWorks news: HTML5 & mobile app development made easy

If you are unable to read the HTML e-mail below, please view it online.
IBM 24 February 2011 | Volume 12, Issue 8 
developerWorks Weekly Edition
 

Welcome, developers!


OK, no more excuses.

Maybe you've been wishing you could start developing mobile web applications, but are intimidated by the learning curve for platforms like Java for Android. Or maybe you're curious about HTML5 development, but are holding off until the standard is more mature and more widely used. Well, our latest web development article may be just what you need to start developing mobile web apps with HTML5. Author Brice Mason shows you how, with a working knowledge of JavaScript and CSS, you can tap a framework that fuses the cutting-edge worlds of mobile application development with HTML5 web development to build mobile web apps. You'll create a basic application, test it with a device emulator, and get an introductory tour of the Sencha Touch framework's UI components.

Want more HTML5 resources? developerWorks also has new articles that show you how to use HTML5 data-* attributes in your jQuery-powered applications, as well as how to achieve cross-browser functionality with HTML5 and CSS3 ... and much more. And don't forget about all our community resources, such as the blog by developerWorks' own Bob Leah, who has discussed HTML5 more than a few times.

Now you have no excuse for not adding HTML5 and mobile app development to your toolkit. And if any of the solutions listed below look intimidating, well, we've got your back.

Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team

AD The money. The fame. The apps. Calling All Innovators
Welcome to the 2010/2011 Calling All Innovators - North America contest, by Nokia and AT&T. We're challenging developers to create the best apps for the Nokia N8 using the Qt SDK and 3D games using OpenGL. We're seeking apps for consumers in North America, or consumers globally inclusive of North America. $10 million in cash, devices, and marketing makes this the biggest developer contest ever.

An Introduction to JSF 2.0 Development Tutorial: Getting started
Cameron McKenzie

In this tutorial, Cameron McKenzie, author of JSF Made Easy, shows you how to configure a development environment that uses Tomcat 7, the Mojarra JSF libraries from Oracle, and a basic JDK installation to develop, test and deploy a JSF application.

Performance testing tips from the greats
Ever wondered how major organizations such as Facebook handle performance testing? To find out, Matt Heusser took the performance testing tutorial at STPCon in Las Vegas, Nevada-- and shares five tips he learned from prominent experts in the field.

WADL: The REST answer to WSDL
Explore an up and coming proposal named Web Application Description Language (WADL), which aims to provide descriptors for RESTful services. WADL is seen as a key component when undertaking REST designs in the enterprise, just like WSDL has been one for SOAP.

Applying control theory concepts in software applications
Find out how concepts of control theory can also be applied to software architectures that have a need for controlling dynamical behavior. Control theory may give more general view on the functionality and inner working of many software frameworks.

Session Spotlight: Developing a Message Driven Architecture with Spring
How do your applications support for eventing, messaging, and scheduling? In this session, Mark Fisher demonstrates how these features can deliver a platform for creating a lightweight, dynamic, message-driven architecture that builds upon the well-known Inversion of Control characteristics of Spring.

Attend this session which covers a significant amount of material that empowers you with a greater understanding of how to:

• Take advantage of Spring 3.0's support for task scheduling and asynchronous method invocation
• Build message-driven solutions with JMS, AMQP, Web Services, Mail, among others
• And more

Learn more about Developing a Message Driven Architecture with Spring at TheServerSide Java Symposium 2011.

Key Enterprise Java News Headlines

Algebraic Modelling System 1.0.0 alpha
Obix Labs have announced the alpha version of their revolutionary XML and Java-based Algebraic Modelling System, which aims to provide a portable representation format for mathematical programs, and also simplify integration of mathematical programs into decision support systems.


9 Tips on Surviving the Wild West Development Process
In a perfect world, we all strive for some kind of development process, be it Waterfall development, Prototyping, Agile or whatever process the CIO/CTO/CEO got sold on by some consultancy. But in the real world what sometimes ("sometimes" being quite often actually) happens is what I like to call the Wild West Development Process (WWDP). The main principle behind it could be summed up by the phrase "promise first and ask questions later".


Domain Driven Design with Spring and AspectJ
On the Java Posse mailing list, someone posted a question about a JVM that was eating CPU like candy from a baby. A list member, Kirk Pepperdine, sussed it out.


MVC Development - Quick Tutorial
This is a short tutorial on Developing web applications with Spring MVC. Leverage the Model-View-Controller architectural pattern with Spring to build decoupled web applications.

So, how does one do it? How does one get into the industry and get that first job as a Java programmer? Well, Janeice Del Vecchio, a co-presenter at TSSJS 2011, has a bit of sage advice for the aspiring Java 'rock-star.'

Key Headlines

Java developers are what's wrong with Java? No.
Two links, one from dzone and one from sys-con, addressed "what's wrong with java". Interesting thoughts, the dzone guy has an excellent point. But there's more.


Slingshot Yourself into JSF 2.0 Development using Tomcat 7 & the JDK
It's about time that the enterprise Java community started to embrace JavaServer Faces. And in an effort to promote a general acceptance and understanding of the technology, the editor of TheServerSide, in association with JSF and WebSphere Portal expert Sal Pece, are going to be publishing and promoting a few of the more interesting chapters of their upcoming book JSF Made Easy.


Groundhog Day; Cloud Silos
The cloud is putting data back into silos creating integration challenges. The pattern is very similar to the way data has been segregated in the enterprise. This article puts forward the issues, how the problem changes in the cloud and how iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service) can help.


guzz 1.2.9 released--split & distribute big tables into many databases to solve the db bottleneck
For a busy system or a large-scaled system, distributed table cutting is a very efficient solution to solve the problems of storing, querying, archiving and other maintaining stuffs for huge operations or data. But in the real world, almost no general-purpose framework did this for developers.
