It’s that time of the year again when the mobile web ecosystem changes. Google Chrome Beta for Android was released and it appears as the future replacement of Android Browser. I’ve made a deep analysis on the browser HTML5 compatibility and the comparison with Safari on iOS and Android Browser and I’ll show in this post my results.
To allow one application to communicate with another running in a different process, Android provides an implementation of Inter-Process Communication through the Android Interface Definition Language (AIDL).
Here's an example graph dataset to illustrate how Pipes works. Pipes is TinkerPop's dataflow framework that uses Gremlin, a graph traversal language. According to Marko Rodrigues, the pipes distribution includes multiple pipes that can be "mixed and matched to yield lazy graph traversals." This post includes plentiful cool Mario graphics.
Most of the time in Solr's Dismax query parser we use parameters like qf, pf or mm forgetting about a very useful parameter which allows us to control how the lower scoring fields are treated – the tie parameter. In this article you'll learn how this parameter can be put to good use.

I’m a big fan of unit tests (Surprise). When ever possible I practice TDD. I like how that approach coerces me into making smaller classes, less dependencies, cleaner abstractions. And of course I love it when my unit tests catch a regression before I even start the application.
In this second article on implementing Spring MVC in Java EE 6 we’ll take the metadata we extracted in part one and use it to invoke request mapped controller methods in response to web requests and then direct the user to a web page based on the result of the method.
An informative, in-depth post about the Java implementation of the Ruby interpreter. Pat Shaughnessy includes some background on both Java and Ruby, as well as other sections about byte code and assembly language. Best of all are the old-timey pics (and the plentiful code).
Martin Fowler and Pramod Sadalage have s recently released a slick infodeck tracing a simple history of databases, as well as a prophecy of the future. They suggests that we've been charged with a decision to either reduce development drag or embrace large scale, which eventually leads to "a world of polyglot persistence."
