The Recipe for Angular 2 in a Java EE Environment: Maven Build

See the original posting on DZone Python

This is the fifth article in our "The Recipe for Angular 2 in a Java EE Environment" series, with a more detailed description of the build of the Angular2 and JavaEE Project. It follows my fourth article about Angular 2 and Java EE that gave a detailed overview of the Frontend infrastructure of the Car Rental Project.

Motivation

In this article, the build of the project is covered. That might not be considered the fun stuff, but to get Angular approved in a corporate environment you will have to learn to integrate with the existing Continuous Integration Infrastructure. The Deployment and Testing requirements also need to be met. This article should give you an example of how this could be done. 

Configuring Your .npmrc for an Optimal Node.js Environment

See the original posting on DZone Python

For Node.js developers, npm is an everyday tool. It’s literally something we interact with multiple times on a daily basis, and it’s one of the pieces of the ecosystem that’s led to the success of Node.js.

One of the most useful, important, and enabling aspects of the npm CLI is that it’s highly configurable. It provides an enormous amount of configurability that enables everyone from huge enterprises to individual developers to use it effectively.

Web Applications Frontend and Backend Communication Using Angular 2 HTTP Observables

See the original posting on DZone Python

A frequent operation in most web and mobile applications is data request and response from/to a server using a REST architectural style via an HTTP protocol. Angular 2 implements Observables in its HTTP module for working with HTTP response and request. In this tutorial, we’ll look at how to get and post data from/to backend servers using Observables.

What you’ll learn in this tutorial:

Frontcache: Cache for Dynamic Pages

See the original posting on DZone Python

A lot of applications use Content Delivery Network [CDN] for static content (images, CSS, JS, etc). It really makes your site faster and reduces the load on your servers a lot.

A similar approach can work for dynamic pages as well: static parts of the page are cached, so dynamic parts of the page hit servers only. It can speed up your website a lot and reduce backend load times! It’s something Frontcache is designed for.

Lamb fetuses can now grow in artificial wombs. Will humans be next?

When babies are born, they draw their first breaths. Those gulps of oxygen trigger the lungs to stop developing.

When babies are born prematurely, the same thing happens. But a preemie’s lungs are critically underdeveloped. Scientific advancements have made it possible for babies born as early…

Kotlin improves code compilation, now requires JDK 8

See the original posting on JavaWorld

The newly updated Jetbrains statically typed language for the JVM, Kotlin 1.1.2, now offers improved compilation and better integration with the company’s IntelliJ Idea IDE, as well as a slew of bug fixes and compatibility with version 2.4.0-alpha of the Android Gradle plugin.

Kotlin enables development of server-side applications, Android apps, or front-end code to run in a browser. Its conciseness reduces the need to write boilerplate code, the company says.

Kotlin 1.1.2 now requires Java Development Kit (JDK) 8. “Most other Java development tools such as Gradle and the Android toolchain also require JDK 8, so you almost certainly already have it installed,” said Dmitry Jemerov, a principal engineer at JetBrains.

NASA’s 2017-2018 Software Catalog is Out

See the original posting on Hackaday

Need some help sizing your beyond-low-Earth-orbit vehicle? Request NASA’s BLAST software. Need to forecast the weather on Venus? That would be Venus-GRAM (global reference atmospheric model). Or maybe you just want to play around with the NASA Tensegrity Robotics Toolkit. (We do!) Then it’s a good thing that part of NASA’s public mandate is making their software available. And the 2017-2018 Software Catalog (PDF) has just been released.

Unfortunately, not everything that NASA does is open source, and a substantial fraction of the software suites are only available for code “to be used on behalf of the U.S. Government”. But …read more

See the original posting on The Verge

Hey, I’m sure you wanted a new smart light. Maybe you haven’t gotten around to buying one yet, or, perhaps, you were holding out a HomeKit-enabled bulb that doesn’t require a hub. I’ve got news for you: iLuv just launched a light that works with HomeKit, meaning you can use Siri for controls. It also doesn’t need a hub; instead pairs over Wi-Fi. Called the Rainbow8, the LED light glows in millions of programmable colors and can group with other bulbs, so you can control multiple at once. You can even program them on a schedule to turn on when you get home or are going to sleep.

Now, you’ve got multiple smart light options for HomeKit, which you can check out in Apple’s handy list. But not requiring a hub is definitely a perk of iLuv….

Spotify considered ending Uber partnership amid mounting scandals

See the original posting on The Verge

As criticism of Uber has mounted over the past month, one of its most prominent partners has discussed whether to continue its relationship with the company. Spotify decided not to participate in a press campaign about an upcoming update to the Uber app, The Verge has learned. In an internal company-wide email, the company’s head of product refers to discussions the company held about ending Uber’s API access, which allows riders to control a driver’s sound system from their smartphones.

“For me, given the views I’ve shared with you regarding Uber and the practices that have been on display there recently, even staying on Uber is not a straightforward decision,” wrote Gustav Söderström, Spotify’s head of product. “But it also doesn’t…
