An Industry at Risk

If you are reading this blog... Then you must almost definately be in a IT industry...
Please read this article which is against Patents... reason being.. just take a look at some of the patents that are aquired

  • IBM holds patent #4,965,765 which covers the use of different colors to distinguish the nesting level of nested expressions.

  • Patent #5,249,290 covers assignment of client requests to the server process having the least load.

  • Patent #4,941,125 covers using a digital camera in conjunction with character recognition software to store and index documents on a CD ROM.

  • # And IBM really does charge small companies 1% of royalties to license a single software patent, and 5% for its entire portfolio.

Internet & Web - Web Content provides the WebDevelopers very decent and useful articles, from Fonts to XMLHTTPRequest to DOM and CSS

Future of the Mozilla Application Suite: No Official Mozilla 1.8, Community Transition Plan Unveiled - MozillaZine Talkback

:( A sad story,
From today on there would be no official releases of Mozilla Application Suite (a.k.a Mozilla SeaMonkey)
Mozilla would be concentrating their efforts towards Firefox and Thunderbird

Architectural Styles and the Design of Network-based Software Architectures

By - Dr. Roy Thomas Fielding

The World Wide Web has succeeded in large part because its software architecture has been designed to meet the needs of an Internet-scale distributed hypermedia system. The Web has been iteratively developed over the past ten years through a series of modifications to the standards that define its architecture. In order to identify those aspects of the Web that needed improvement and avoid undesirable modifications, a model for the modern Web architecture was needed to guide its design, definition, and deployment.

Software architecture research investigates methods for determining how best to partition a system, how components identify and communicate with each other, how information is communicated, how elements of a system can evolve independently, and how all of the above can be described using formal and informal notations. My work is motivated by the desire to understand and evaluate the architectural design of network-based application software through principled use of architectural constraints, thereby obtaining the functional, performance, and social properties desired of an architecture. An architectural style is a named, coordinated set of architectural constraints.

This dissertation defines a framework for understanding software architecture via architectural styles and demonstrates how styles can be used to guide the architectural design of network-based application software. A survey of architectural styles for network-based applications is used to classify styles according to the architectural properties they induce on an architecture for distributed hypermedia. I then introduce the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style and describe how REST has been used to guide the design and development of the architecture for the modern Web.

REST emphasizes scalability of component interactions, generality of interfaces, independent deployment of components, and intermediary components to reduce interaction latency, enforce security, and encapsulate legacy systems. I describe the software engineering principles guiding REST and the interaction constraints chosen to retain those principles, contrasting them to the constraints of other architectural styles. Finally, I describe the lessons learned from applying REST to the design of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol and Uniform Resource Identifier standards, and from their subsequent deployment in Web client and server software.
