Java Native Interface (JNI)
JNI is a native programming interface supported by Java and is part of the Java SDK. With JNI, we can write code in other languages like C/C++ and use it in Java. We can also call C/C++ functions using Java code and vice versa – call Java functions with C/C++ code.
First, we’re going to cover the first part: calling C/C++ functions with Java code, which is more widespread and is probably the reason why you’re looking at this tutorial....
Quartz is a full-featured, open source job scheduling service that can be integrated with, or used along side virtually any Java application - from the smallest stand-alone application to the largest e-commerce system. Quartz can be used to create simple or complex schedules for executing tens, hundreds, or even tens-of-thousands of jobs; jobs whose tasks are defined as standard Java components that may execute virtually anything you may program them to do.
If your application has tasks that need to occur at any given moment, or if your system has recurring maintenance jobs, then Quartz may be your ideal solution....
Yii is a free, open-source Web application development framework written in PHP5 that promotes clean, DRY design and encourages rapid development. It works to streamline your application development and helps to ensure an extremely efficient, extensible, and maintainable end product.
Yii is the fastest PHP framework, best for creating large scale Web2.0 applications. Yii can be used for developing any kind of web applications. It is especially suited for high traffic web applications like portals, forums, social media sites and so on. It comes packaged with tools to help test and debug your application, and has clear and comprehensive documentation. BTW Yii incorporates many ideas and work from other well-known Web programming frameworks and applications....
San Diego, Calif., April 8, 2013 -- Computer scientists at the University of California, San Diego, have developed an immersive, first-person player video game designed to teach students in elementary to high school how to program in Java, one of the most common programming languages in use today.
The researchers tested the game on a group of 40 girls, ages 10 to 12, who had never been exposed to programming before. They detailed their findings in a paper they presented at the SIGCSE conference in March in Denver. Computer scientists found that within just one hour of play, the girls had mastered some of Java’s basic components and were able to use the language to create new ways of playing with the game....
The online shopping industry is gaining popularity all over the world, so e-commerce sites are extremely popular nowadays. We can find many options available online to build an e-commerce website, but Magento is considered to be one of the most robust, flexible and scalable open source e-commerce platforms on the market. Magento also includes a wide range of tools to build and manage an online store. It is well known in the developer community for its use of object-oriented programming (OOP) and especially for its use of the EAV model. This allows Magento to be much more versatile than most e-commerce platforms at storing a large range of data....
Most times, your site needs some kind of caching system in place, even with a moderate increase in traffic levels.
Real Caching Needs to Be:
- High performance
- Flexible enough to work for any type or amount of traffic
- A completely separate layer that lives above your web apps
- Structured to avoid invoking the heavy application frameworks it sits in front of
Today we'll show you how to deploy and use Artifactory, one of the most advanced repository managers, in the Cloud. Artifactory offers powerful enterprise features and fine-grained permission control behind a sleek and easy-to-use UI. Let's examine its main features in short:
- Artifactory acts as a proxy between your build tool (Maven, Ant etc.) and the outside world.
- Local CacheIt caches remote artifacts so that you don’t have to download them over and over again.
- It blocks unwanted (and sometimes security-sensitive) external requests for internal artifacts and controls how and where artifacts are deployed, and by whom...

Picture your code. Picture all those functions on which there are no source-code dependencies. That might sound odd: if there are no source-code dependencies on a function then what is its purpose? Well, we must distinguish between compile-time dependencies and run-time dependencies. True, all entities at run-time must be called by other run-time entities: it’s turtles all the way down (or at least all the way to freshly powered-up hardware and its firmware-initialized instruction pointer)....
