The importance of mobile systems programming has emerged over the recent years as a new domain in software development. The design of software that runs in a mobile device requires that developers combine the rules applicable in embedded environment; memory-awareness, limited performance, security, and limited resources with features that are needed in workstation environment; modifiability, run-time extensions, and rapid application development.
Programming Mobile Devices is a comprehensive, practical introduction to programming mobile systems.
Composite applications aid businesses by stitching together various componented
business capabilities. In the current enterprise scenario, empowering business
users to react quickly to the rapidly changing business environment is the top most
priority. With the advent of composite applications the 'reuse' paradigm has moved
from the technical aspect to the business aspect. You no longer re-use a service
but re-use a business process. Now, enterprises can define their own behaviors
optimized for their businesses through metadata and flows.
Today’s highly interactive websites pose a challenge for traditional SQL databases—the ability to scale rapidly and serve loads of concurrent users. With this concise guide, you’ll learn how to build web applications on top of Couchbase Server 2.0, a NoSQL database that can handle websites and social media where hundreds of thousands of users read and write large volumes of information.
Teach yourself Visual C# 2010-one step at a time. Ideal for developers with fundamental programming skills, this practical tutorial features learn-by-doing exercises that demonstrate how, when, and why to use the features of the C# rapid application development environment.

This book is aimed at equipping you, the developer, to understand the technologies that
are available to allow you to rapidly build secure, quality web experiences. Note that I use
the term experiences and not applications or sites. That is because the user experience is
the heart of the future Web.
Software Testing and Continuous Quality Improvement, Second Edition, illustrates a quality framework for software testing in traditional structured and unstructured environments. Section I reviews modern QA principles and best practices. Section II examines the waterfall development methodology. The next section contrasts waterfall development methodology with the rapid application spiral environment. Section IV discusses fundamental challenges of maintaining and improving existing systems.

Information Technology is growing rapidly. With the birth of high-resolution
graphics, high-speed computing and user interaction devices, Virtual Reality has
emerged as a major new technology in the mid 90es, last century. An explosion has
occurred in our understanding of Virtual Reality, Virtual Environments and in the
technologies required to produce them in the last decade. Virtual Worlds and Virtual
Environments are produced for people, for users to interact with computer and with
complex information sets....

In test driven development, you first write an executable test of what your application code must do. Only then do you write the code itself and, with the test spurring you on, you improve your design. In acceptance test driven development (ATDD), you use the same technique to implement product features, benefiting from iterative development, rapid feedback cycles, and better-defined requirements. TDD and its supporting tools and techniques lead to better software faster.
Over the last two years, Google’s Android operating system (OS) has gone from a virtually
unknown open source solution to the current mobile OS market leader among all mobile
handsets, with over one-third of the market share, and it’s still climbing rapidly. Android has even
started to dominate the tablet OS marketplace, and is also the foundation for the popular iTV OS
known as GoogleTV. There seems to be no end in sight for Android’s rocketing success, which is
great news for owners of this book....
For me, this book has become all about change. In the time that I have been watching the mobile computing marketplace and developing software solutions for it, there has never been a time when there has been a more rapid series of shifts and changes. A good friend of mine tells me that this is because of market consolidation. As of the time of writing (August 2010), we’re looking at the time when the people who will be leaders in this space for the next 20 years jostle for position.
