Kotlin 1.4 M3 release improves Java module support

InfoWorld 4h et 10min ago

The planned next release of the JetBrains-sponsored Kotlin language, version 1.4, has reached its last milestone preview stage, with a change to the standard library to better take advantage of Java modularity.With the M3 update, standard library artifacts now include module-info descriptors, derived from Java 9’s module system. Kotlin runs on the JVM. The Kotlin 1.4 release adds module-info.java module information to default standard library artifacts, so developers can use modules easily with the jlink tool, for generating a custom Java runtime image containing platform modules required for an application.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

GIS aids in Covid-19 fight beyond tracking cases

InfoWorld 7h et 31min ago

Geospatial data is helping battle Covid-19 in ways other than tracking infection hot spots, panelists at this week’s Esri virtual user conference told online attendees.In Santa Monica, city officials built dashboards and maps so residents knew what businesses were still open, according to GIS analyst Zach Robinson. This was important both to help people find groceries and pharmacies and to help neighborhood businesses, he said. They also used geospatial analysis at the start of the pandemic to track city workers’ whereabouts to help plan ways for more to work more safely at home.[ Read the IDG Special Report: Navigating the pandemic ] Visibility of location-based data in the community has “skyrocketed,” Robinson said.To read this article in full, please click here...

BigQuery Omni will query data across Google, AWS, and Azure clouds

InfoWorld 10h et 57min ago

Google Cloud has unveiled a new BigQuery service designed to remove one of data science’s primary pain points: having to move and unify data across environments in order to query it. Named BigQuery Omni, the first phase will see private alpha Google Cloud customers able to blend AWS data into the BigQuery data warehouse to run SQL queries, build dashboards, or push through APIs, without having to physically move any data, with similar capabilities for Microsoft Azure “coming soon.” [ Also on InfoWorld: 13 ways Google Cloud beats AWS ] “Multicloud creates a problem – data becomes siloed and running analytics on that data needs data movement. To solve that problem BigQuery Omni lets customers analyse data no matter where that is: Google... Read the article

The state of services in the cloud for 2020

InfoWorld 16h et 57min ago

Services are really old school if you think about it. We’ve progressed from early efforts around API-enabling applications, to object-oriented programming, to CORBA-based services, to SOA, to containers, to serverless functions, to today’s use of microservices. What’s common about the journey is the underlying belief that we can write something once and use it many times in many different applications or utilities, not to mention the ability to combine services so they become a new service unto itself. This is done through service decomposition.

The end of the line for PHP on Windows

InfoWorld 16h et 57min ago

PHP may have been around for a while, but it’s still an important Web development tool. Building on a declarative model of programming, PHP extends the familiar HTML syntax with additional commands and functions, adding in-line programming and extensions to your Web content. That model has made it an important part of many content management systems, providing a framework for managing database-delivered content and formatting pages using dynamic templates.The future of PHP on Windows Many of those CMSes run inside corporate firewalls, hosting intranets and internal collaboration tools. So it’s not surprising to see that the official Windows builds of PHP come from Microsoft, as one of its longest-running open source projects.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

8 great libraries for C++ programming

InfoWorld 16h et 57min ago

C++ is a general-purpose systems programming language that is now more than 40 years old, having been designed in 1979. Far from losing steam, C++ still ranks near the top of multiple programming language popularity indexes.Smoothing the path to C++ usage is broad support for the language among the makers of IDEs, editors, compilers, test frameworks, code quality, and other tools. Software developers also have at their disposal many excellent libraries to assist with building C++ applications. Here are eight that C++ developers rely on. To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

What is GitOps? Extending devops to Kubernetes and beyond

InfoWorld 16h et 57min ago

The last decade of programming has seen a number of revolutionary transformations. One has arisen from a cluster of practices around devops, which aligns development and operations teams into a shared work process, and continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), in which devops teams deliver constant incremental updates to a codebase. Another transformation has come from the related move from monolithic codebases to cloud-based microservices running in containers managed by orchestration platforms like Kubernetes.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

What is Google’s Open Usage Commons — and why?

InfoWorld on 13/07/2020 pm31 12:00:00

Google recently launched the Open Usage Commons (OUC) foundation to offer open source projects “support specific to trademark protection and management, usage guidelines, and conformance testing,” according to the OUC’s website. Seems sort of bland, right? Well, maybe.Depending on who you are, you either hate OUC or you love it. On the “hate” side seem to be IBM and the Linux Foundation on the record, and others off. On the “love” side seems to be just Google, though a rising chorus of experienced open sourcerors like Shaun Connolly and Adam Jacob have suggested that maybe, just maybe, this isn’t the end of open source as we know it.To read this article in full, please click here Read the article

How to use route data tokens in ASP.NET Core

InfoWorld on 13/07/2020 pm31 12:00:00

ASP.NET Core is an open source, cross-platform, lean, and modular framework for building high-performance web applications. Routing in ASP.NET Core is managed by built-in routing middleware, which maps the incoming requests to the respective route handlers.The routing infrastructure in ASP.NET Core provides support for data tokens, a useful feature that allows you to pass arbitrary data with routes and use them programmatically in the route handling pipeline. This article talks about how we can work with data tokens in ASP.NET Core. [ Also on InfoWorld: What is Jamstack?
