(August 20, 2003) - This week, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) issued Web Ontology Language (OWL) as a W3C Candidate Recommendation. Candidate Recommendation is an explicit call for implementations, indicating that the document has been reviewed by all other W3C Working Groups, that the specification is stable, and appropriate for implementation. OWL is a language for defining structured, Web-based ontologies which enable richer integration and interoperability of data across application boundaries. Early adopters of these standards include bioinformatics and medical communities, corporate enterprise and governments. OWL enables a range of descriptive applications including managing Web portals, collections management, content-based searches, enabling intelligent agents, Web services and ubiquitous computing. "OWL is an important step for making data on the Web m... (more)

Dave Winer: "It's Time for Web 2.0 to Stop Being Exclusive"

(August 1, 2006) - A war of words has broken out in the world of Web 2.0 - between the software developer Dave Winer (pictured) - who created or was a lead contributor to several of the most popular XML dialects and APIs related to web publishing such as RSS 2.0, XML-RPC, OPML, and the MetaWeblog API - and the founder of O'Reilly Media - the newly self-proclaimed "technology transfer company." Winer's beef? "We need to get all hands involved in what we used to call Web 2.0," he laments. "It's time for it to stop being exclusive, and it's way past time for one company to be controlling who's supposed to participate." Winer's contention is that events such as "FOO Camp" are harming the greater good, which is to make software easier, better, scalable, more reliable, and more secure, and instead turning Internet technology into an elitist world where it becomes a questi...

Re: RE: [Summary #2] Should Subject Matter Experts Determine X

I think Chin Chee-Kai's point is well taken as well, though it could be that what is designed here is a template for building interfaces (which again leads into the supposition that what you are talking about is essentially a second order schema - a schema used to define another schema). Not that I think it changes my original assertion, which I would modify slightly as to say a given schema should be an assertion of state, not process. The desire of the business expert involved placing a constraint upon the data model, but the question is whether this constraint is one that should have an obvious implication on the state of the model itself or is in fact part of a processing model that extends beyond the state model.

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)

The Top 250 Players in the Cloud Computing Ecosystem

In the run-up to the next Cloud Expo, 7th Cloud Expo (November 1–4, 2010) being held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Silicon Valley, it's time to give my earlier list a complete overhaul. Here, accordingly, is an expanded list of the most active players in the Cloud Ecosystem. I have increased it from the 'mere' 150 I identified back in January of this year, to 250, testimony – as if any were needed! – to the fierce and continuing growth of the "Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing. Editorial note: The words in quotation marks used to describe the various services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web sites of the companies themselves. Omissions to this Top 250 list should be sent to me via Twitter (twitter.com/jg21) and I will endeavor to include them in any future revision of this newly expanded rou... (more)

Where Are RIA Technologies Headed in 2008?

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because they can only give you answers." Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered. From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed. What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX? Eric Miraglia of Yahoo! 1.  (From March'08) How do I calculate the ROI of building my RIA on the iPhone SDK vs using AJAX? 2.  How do I assess the performance of my app and decide what to do next to make it faster?  3.  When it comes to accessibility, how do I know what's required of me for my rich web apps?  Beyond what's required, what makes good business se...
