Java Spring Framework {4}

by Eric S

Today, Business and developers are always finding different ways to give them that competitive edge in the technology market.  One of the first major game changers was the Java Spring Framework, released in 2002. It has evolved over the years and helped java be able to evolve and still work with many new and existing external platforms today. As with every program there are specific intentions or roles it is meant to be able to accomplish.  If we were to try and compare what the Java Spring framework role is in laymen terms, it would be considered the piping and internal structure design of a house, by helping move things in and out on a set smooth pattern. As we have moved form log cabins to ultra modern smart homes, the design of the piping and internal structure has significantly changed to adapt. The Java Spring Framework like we have seen on the market in the last few years has done just that. According to Springsource.org “The Spring Framework helps you build Java Applications faster because it allows you to focus on your business problem rather than the plumbing code that connects components and systems.” (Spring Source) Throughout this blog I will explain the history and the practical use of the Java Spring Framework, as we use it today. read more...

Database could decrease crimes {2}

by Ricardo C
This article talks about how a database could reduce crimes. According to the article, an average of 40% of robberies involve cell phones. The majority of these robberies are violent and with serious injuries. The database promises that wireless providers will deactivate your mobile device if you report it stolen. The major wireless providers of USA sprint, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile are participating in this database with the purpose to decrease the desire of thieves for stealing mobile devices. Since after deactivating the devices they become as useless as an empty wallet, there is no incentive to steal them. Thieves steal these devices with the intention of reselling them, most likely overseas. According to the article, these four companies mentioned earlier account for the 90% of mobile devices in the USA which mean that this centralized database will cover the majority of the cell phones currently in use. This database will be in effect within six months in the USA and within 18 months globally.
Besides the centralized database, authorities are promoting customers to educate themselves about the use of personal data on mobile devices. Some of these advices are to keep your divides password protected, write down your device’s model and serial number, etc. The article did not disclose the cost of these initiative but certainly the concern here isn’t cost. read more...
