    The e-Learning Framework

    E-Learning is cost effective, facilitates higher retention of contents through personalized learning and above all Online learning is less intimidating than instructor-led courses. The spectrum of courses envisaged under e-learning are going to be of many folds, all the way from catering to students of high schools to the degree...

    Why e-Learning

    With the proliferation of Internet and Intranet, learning through the net gets a new name "e-Learning" in conformity with e-Commerce and e-Business. Training requirements in the Software Development segments arise mainly from three sources viz. customer requirements out of a new project, from the organizations future plan and business expansions...

    The CCM and EJB Story

    Every Component Software technologies like CCM, EJB and COM+ offer a model for dealing with components. This is called a Component Model. The first step of integrating CCM and EJB is in finding the commonalties between the two component models. Before that one needs to understand what a Component Model...

    EJB and CORBA Integration

    As the enterprise started heavily relying on computing power for its day-to-day activities, the need for managing all that larger amount of data attained critical importance. Hence, the past two decades was indeed dominated by Data Base Management Systems. Relational Database technology enabled the needed data management technology. Then came...

    Exchanging Data Between Globally Accepted Technologies

    When one is totally confused in today's decentralized, distributed environment for exchange of information, one can still encounter well-standardized, globally accepted technologies. Each of these technologies serves very well in their respective domain. But when the question arises as to how data can be exchanged between these technologies, one face...

    Inside the IDL to Java Mapping

    Though Java and CORBA are complementary technologies, Java has a private world of its own and so does CORBA. All CORBA objects were intended to live beyond a programming language world like that of Java or C++. In fact, all CORBA objects live in a virtual world with semantics of...

    Integrating the Java and CORBA World

    Aeons (in information technology speak) ago, Sun Microsystems introduced the "Strap line", "The Network is the Computer", and along came a new revolution that changed the way one works. The days of an operating system running on a single machine is over. Thanks to the genius in Tim Berners-Lee, one...

    JAVA to IDL Mapping

    The growing relevance of CORBA and OMG in the Information Technology world has made it an irresistible option to Software Developers. Infact, CORBA is the only system solution that supports all major languages and most major platforms. Sun underestimated this when they avoided CORBA altogether in their Java solution. Well,...

    CORBA 2.3 - POA and OBV

    What better could have spoiled the party for CORBA than portability concerns? The first drive was to standardize the client interface of CORBA. This was a success. However, the server side was underspecified and resulted in incompatible server side implementations. Portability needs to be addressed in the next specification. This...

    Doing Software Right: Enterprise Architecture Development

    Solving complex problems with teams of people requires planning. For enterprise software systems, some of the most important planning is highly technical (i.e. planning system architecture). Planning generates artifacts, but planning (as an activity) is much more important, than project management plans, the typical artifacts. By this, the author means...

    The Componentware Revolution (Part IV)

    Software patterns comprise a common body of software knowledge which can be applied across all component infrastructures. The most famous category of software patterns, called design patterns, comprises proven software design ideas which are reused by developers. Other important categories of patterns include analysis patterns and antipatterns. Analysis patterns define...

    The Componentware Revolution

    Many have serious misconceptions about the capabilities of current software approaches. Based upon surveys of corporate software projects in the United States, the realities of software development are as follows. About one third of all software projects are cancelled. Average projects expend twice as much budget and schedule as initially...

    Interoperability the Untold Ideal!

    To bring about Interoperabilty and compatibility, component technologies are the 'Key'. These coupled with distributed technologies offer the road to perfect 'Plug N Play'.

    Advice for Software Architects

    Too often, architectures are used as sales tools rather than technical blueprints.
