While parts of the cloud IT that are still being hyped are changing rapidly, the whole segment is not past the hype yet. The cloud report  that Gartner published 9 months ago still holds true today.
Reports of disillusioned customers of such solutions  are a clear sign that the hype might have reached its peak for most parts of cloud offerings, though. And while many articles discuss the...

Recently, we were tasked to develop a SAAS application for big data analysis. To do data mining, the system need to store multi billion public posts in the database and run the classification process on them.
Classification in our context is a slow, resource intensive and painful process to assign a topic or sentiment to any record in the database. The process can last up to 24 hours with our...

Java User Groups
Not too long ago, I actually was planning to attend this year's geecon conference, in Krakow, Poland. But, various events intervened, and I had to cancel. So, I'll have to just pretend it's the third leg of the Java conference hopping trip across Europe that I wish I could have taken this year (the first two stops were Jfokus and JavaLand).
geecon's workshops actually happened earlier today;...

Inaugural JavaLand in Germany
It took trains, planes, and automobiles to get there. I had heard Germany ran some great conferences, but JavaLand was promised to be outstanding. Kevin already did an interview with one of the organizers, Markus Eisele, about why JavaLand is different. (https://weblogs.java.net/blog/editor/archive/2014/03/01/java-conferences...) But, I got to see first-hand if they...

While looking at the bar graph from most recently completed Java.net poll about Java 8 implies a fairly strong consensus, in actuality I think this poll implies that there's quite a lot of disagreement on which aspect(s) of Java 8 are most important for Java/JVM developers going forward. A total of 245 votes were cast in the poll, and two well thought out comments were posted. The exact question...

In this post, I try to give a reasonable account of Java's error handling system being as it is that the handling of errors is a concern that any reasonable programming language must find some way to contend with. Java's error handling methodology is based on an idea of exceptions.

When you write code, it is generally desirable to do so in a way that takes advantage of OOP features like encapsulation and inheritance to make your program easily extensible, by for instance, as much as possible manipulating references to base classes and letting polymorphism work for...

Recently I was wandering the aisles of a Barnes and Noble bookstore (the last big chain bookstore in the United States), and I was surprised to see a selection of 6 or 7 books about the Raspberry Pi! Perhaps this shouldn't have surprised me, but it did. Just now, I went to the Barnes and Noble web site and searched for "Raspberry Pi" books, and 70 books were returned, all of them genuinely about...
