This year I’m planning to run a one-day workshop at a couple of software
development conferences and privately for IT shops. The goal is to introduce
developing in classical object-oriented languages like Java, C++ or C#. Below
is the outline of this workshop.
Functions, Objects, Prototypal Inheritance,Closures Using Chrome Developer
selected ECMAScript 6 features.
Part 2. Designing Single-Page Web Applications
Web app prototyping. Designing a Product page of an online auction using Pure
Product page for smart phones and tablets by adding CSS Media Queries. Our
Product page will look like this. Single-Page Ap... (more)
Why You Should Start Developing With Google Dart
In the summer of 2013 I wrote a blog “How Serious is Google About Dart“.
It’s January of 2015, and I’d like to give you an update from the
trenches. Our team has developed and deployed in prod a beta version of the
application that helps consumers with finding and rating insurance agents and
getting quotes online. The front end of EasyInsure is written in Dart
Before introducing the Dart ecosystem, I’d like to give you a little
background about our prior experience in developing Web applications (I work
for Farata Syste... (more)
Pushing Data to Multiple WebSocket Clients From a Java Server
Finished writing the WebSocket chapter for the second edition of my Java 24
Hour Trainer. In this blog I’ll show you one of the code samples from
Pretty often you need to write a program that publishes the same message to
all connected clients. For example, multiple clients of the online auctions
have to be notified when a new bid is placed on the product. Another example
is when a new stock price quote need to be pushed from the server to all
connected clients. With websockets it’s a pretty easy task.
Tim Bray, a Distinguished Engineer and Director of Web Technologies at Sun
Microsystems has been interviewed by InfoQ about the future of the Web. With
all my respect to Sun’s engineers, I have to disagree with some of the
statements Mr. Bray made.
He said, "Anything that discards the Back button is a step backward".
I strongly disagree that people who are used to the page-based Web apps
can’t/won't learn how to live without it. But even if it is the case, you
can create RIA that support Back button - just decide what application view
(no page) to show when the user hits the Back b... (more)
Some time ago I blogged that Java Swing should be deprecated and replaced
with JavaFX. In this blog I’ll show a piece of JavaFX namely event handlers
and binding. I’ve created a simple Sign In window with a GridPane layout
(it’s JavaFX equivalent of Swing’s GridBagLayout). I’m not going to
spend much time on the GridPane itself, but will show you a basic event
handling and a binding.
In JavaFX an event object is represented by the instance of the class
javafx.event.Event. There are different ways of handling events. Depending on
how you structured your application you can handle... (more)
