WebObjects is an object-oriented Web application server that is used to generate scalable Web and Java applications from reusable templates. A product of Apple Computer, WebObjects' client list includes such Fortune 500 companies as Disney, Adobe, and the BBC. The product's support for Java 2 Enterprise Edition and its competitive pricing are expected to expand WebObjects' growing position in the market for Web application servers, a market that is expected to grow by more than $2 billion in revenue by 2002 (Forrester Research). WebObjects Developer's Guide is a unique, step-by-step guide for intermediate- to advanced-level developers. It uses a hands-on instructional approach to make the sophisticated and sometimes complex WebObjects technology accessible to developers. The book explains WebObjects concepts and paradigms, and it illustrates the art of modeling applications with the Enterprise Object Framework. The author provides practical insight into WebObjects development based upon his extensive experience as a consultant for major international corporations.
Mac OS X, Apple's newest operating system for the Macintosh platform, is profoundly different from its earlier versions because of its similarity to the UNIX operating system. For developers writing software for OS X this means adjusting to two new environments to create applications and to access the enhanced features of the new OS, Cocoa and Carbon. Cocoa is an object-oriented API in which all future OS X programs will be written. Carbon is a transitional technology allowing compatibility of applications written for earlier versions of the Mac OS with Mac OS X. Mac OS X Developer's Guide focuses equally on Cocoa and Carbon, guiding the reader through these technologies and showing how to write applications in both. It is the first book for Mac OS X developers written for those who are already working on applications, as well as new developers just getting started. It starts off describing the new OS and its development tools then focuses on specific programming issues, providing tips on making the transition from classic Mac OS code to Mac OS X. * A guide for developers already writing applications as well as new developers just getting started * Focuses equally on both Cocoa and Carbon environments * Provides tips on transitioning from writing code for classic Mac OS to OS X * References Apple online materials extensively, to keep developers up to speed on changes
Windows NT is rapidly becoming a major force in the computing world both as a corporate-strength operating system and as a system for individuals requiring a powerful and secure computing platform. This book provides an up-to-date guide to Web browsers and Web servers for Windows NT.

An expert guide to Ruby, a popular new Object-Oriented Programming Language Ruby is quickly becoming a favourite among developers who need a simple, straight forward, portable programming language. Ruby is ideal for quick and easy object-oriented programming such as processing text files or performing system management. Having been compared with other programming languages such as Perl, Python, PCL, Java, Eiffel, and C++; Ruby is popular because of its straight forward syntax and transparent semantics. Using step-by-step examples and real world applications, the Ruby Developer's Guide is designed for programmers and developer's looking to embrace the object-oriented features and functionality of this robust programming language. Readers will learn how to develop, implement, organize and deploy applications using Ruby. Ruby is currently experiencing a rapid rise in popularity in the object-oriented programming community Readers receive up-to-the minute links, white papers, and analysis for two years at [email protected] Comes with a wallet-sized CD containing a printable HTML version of the book, all of the source code examples and demos of popular Ruby third-party programming tools and applications
Trends in experimental sciences, such as astrophysics, have led to many critically needed, non-normalized, and massive metadata catalogs that organize collections of recorded photographic and spectrographic observations of similar size. Observations of the night sky can best be presented using a data model that conveys the observations, analysis, objects contained with the observations, and results of analysis pertaining to those objects. Such a model is proposed, and it is referred to as the internet Flexible Image Transport System (iFITS). In addition, a set of mapping functions to transform instances of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey into instances of iFITS, a lightweight marshaling method to transfer data to and from server side instances to mobile instances. Furthermore, this dissertation explores four architectures such as content management, software/ infrastructure/ platform as a service, context rule engine-based request-response loop factory, and representational state transfer (REST)-based query engines to facilitate the mining of the metadata catalogs containing these observations.
