Will Linux Win the Next Presidential Election?

jense so let me get this straight... (453 comments)

John McCain (for example) took time out of his preparation for upcoming primaries to chair an internal commitee on whether or not to use Windows or Linux servers. Furthermore, he took into consideration the political, secretive, subliminal implications of this choice and made a strategic move that would appease constituents. Or maybe he just asked an old buddy to coordinate his web site.

Social Networking Meets Java Development

jense jense writes  |  more than 6 years ago

jense writes "As technology gets more and more complex, managing your tools is as bad as getting dirty with code. A new free product for Eclipse developers has just been launched to solve these woes. It's in beta stage, but holds a lot of promise for hair-pulling devs like me — it even allows for easy sharing of software configurations between users — a must for my dev team. I found a nice writeup here."

"The support for Java EE 5 (specifically EJB 3, standardized and open Java persistence and enhanced JSF capabilities) solves critical usability concerns our customers have voiced," said Wayne Parrott, Vice President of Product Development for Genuitec. "With new wizards, validation and code-assist features, users will quickly see the productivity increase these new features provide."

In addition, the 5.5 release will include continued support for the popular MyEclipse SNAPs (Simple Non-integrated APplications), which allow for workspace-free file manipulation. Continuing to bridge gaps between disparate IDEs, "Use-Anywhere" connectors are provided so users of NetBeans, IntelliJ IDEA and Visual Studio platforms can utilize MyEclipse SNAPs (including a Visual Web Designer/HTML Editor [now supporting .php and .asp files], XML Editor, Database tools, smart Text Editing tools and Java Image Editor [with screen capture ability]) directly within their own environments. The SNAPs are free as part of the MyEclipse distribution, but are currently only available for the Windows platform.

The following is a sampling of the new/updated features in MyEclipse 5.5:
  • Platform support:
    • Microsoft Vista support

jense writes "Based on a new Fusion technology platform, the current release of MyEclipse 5.5 debuts a new suite of SNAPs (Simple Nonintegrated Applications) tools targeted for quick, light-weight, “no IDE required” development tasks. Fusion technology and SNAPs are included in the MyEclipse distribution at no additional charge.

The advent of Fusion technology and the SNAPs tool suite opens new doors by enabling non-IDE users and users of popular IDEs to quickly and easily move between agile SNAPs for focused tasks into a larger IDE environment without losing time or work-in-progress. In addition, this new Fusion technology will enable Genuitec to infinitely deliver new features and capabilities through a series of SNAP applications; effectively eliminating vendor lock-in and connecting previously disparate work environments in a simple, easy to use tool suite.

“Genuitec has always been at the forefront of development tools technology, bridging the gap between environments that have historically been mutually exclusive,” says Maher Masri, CEO of Genuitec. “Now for 2007, our R&D labs have developed Fusion Technology to take that principle a step further by allowing universal tool compatibility.”"

jense writes "Scientists have created the ability to "cloak" an object from view of microwaves. The military should be very interested, since if you can cloak an object from microwaves, it would also be rendered invisible to radar. The scientists also say that the concept could be applied to visible light in future experiements."

jense writes "The Libyan government has cut a deal with a US-based nonprofit group to provide laptop computers for all of the North African nation's 1.2 million schoolchildren.

From the article:

"...Libya could become the first nation in which all school-age children are connected to the Internet through educational computers... [Libya may also] pay for laptops for poorer African nations like Chad, Niger and Rwanda."

The Libyan project is slated to be completed by June of 2008."

The all-stock deal announced Monday unites one of the Internet's marquee companies with one of its rapidly rising stars. It came just hours after YouTube unveiled three agreements with media companies in an apparent bid to escape the threat of copyright-infringement lawsuits."
