Buzzwords 2.0: What is Web 2.0? What is RIA? What is Ajax?

The much-hyped but poorly defined terms Web 2.0, Rich Internet Application (RIA) and Ajax are best understood when they are defined together. Buzzwords represent job security for entrepreneurs like me who would be practically unemployable were it not for our secret knowledge of the true meaning of words like Web 2.0. However, even I must admit that these Buzzwords 2.0 get in the way of clear communication. In addition, while there are many standalone definitions of terms like Web 2.0, it is much easier to understand these buzzwords mean by considering them together. With that in mind, here are my definitions of Web 2.0, Rich Internet Application and Ajax, complete with helpful graphics: Web 2.0 represents a market shift in consumer attention from expert-generated content (Yahoo) to user-generated content (Google)Rich Internet Applications represents a requirements shift...

It has some limitations, such as exposing overloaded Java methods or marshaling of very complex Java Objects to JavaScript ... (more)

How to convert html file to xml format using Tagsoup

Hi All,   I would like to find out how to convert html file to xml format using Tagsoup in Java 6.   I have read through all the documents from http://tagsoup.info and other Google searches but could not find much useful material. Majority of these material are more for overview as opposed to explanation on how to use each classes provided by Tagsoup package.   Both tagsoup-1.2.jar and tagsoup-1.2-src.zip have been downloaded but only has the instruction to use tagsoup-1.2.jar as a stand- alone command. However, I am looking for some examples on how to do the conversion in Java instead.   There are no documentation in tagsoup-1.2-src.zip. I would like to compile the source code (only if it will add values on top of what the jar file has not already provide) in Netbeans but do not have the instruction to do so.   Any guidance would be much appreciated. Many thanks, J... (more)

Re: How to convert html file to xml format using Tagsoup

Hi Dave,   Thanks for your respond to this question.   I prefer not to get into XSLT just for some simple parsing need. Just use XPath in JDOM should be sufficient in this case.   Thanks anyway,   Jack From: Dave Pawson To: Jack Bush Cc: xml-dev[email protected] Sent: Saturday, 1 November, 2008 1:06:13 AM Subject: Re: How to convert html file to xml format using Tagsoup Jack Bush wrote: > Hi All, >  I would like to find out how to convert html file to xml format using Tagsoup in Java 6. >  I have read through all the documents from http://tagsoup.info/ and other Google searches but could not find much useful material.

Thinking About Enterprise Mobility, Digital Transformation and Doctrine

Last week I was in Europe speaking and teaching enterprise mobility and digital transformation strategies.  I worked with several large multinational companies where I heard the same questions asked, "How do we convince our executives that we must change, and invest in change?  How do we establish a culture of innovation, capable of winning in a world of digital transformation?"  The change they were referring to had to do with the convergence of the physical world with the digital and its impact on markets.  These changes are introducing new ways of selling, marketing, manufacturing and moving products in a digital world that is rapidly being transformed as a result of innovations in social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies.  We are seeing entire industries and marketplaces turned upside down as a result of these innovations.  How can companies deal with ...
