While the REST design philosophy has captured the imagination of web and enterprise developers alike, using this approach to develop real web services is no picnic. This cookbook includes more than 100 recipes to help you take advantage of REST, HTTP, and the infrastructure of the Web. You'll learn ways to design RESTful web services for client and server applications that meet performance, scalability, reliability, and security goals, no matter what programming language and development framework you use....
Websites are not the same as pictures of websites. When one
person designs in Photoshop and another converts the design
to markup and CSS, the coder must make guesses and assumptions
about what the designer intended. This interpretive
process is never without friction—unless the coder is Dan
Cederholm. When Dan codes other people’s designs, he gets
everything right, including the parts the designer got wrong.
For instance, Dan inevitably translates a designer’s fixed
Photoshop dimensions into code that is flexible, accessible,
Learn how to design and develop distributed web services in Java using RESTful architectural principals and the JAX-RS specification in Java EE 6. With this hands-on reference, you'll focus on implementation rather than theory, and discover why the RESTful method is far better than technologies like CORBA and SOAP.
Whether it's in Java, .NET, or Ruby on Rails, getting your application ready to ship is only half the battle. Did you design your system to survivef a sudden rush of visitors from Digg or Slashdot? Or an influx of real world customers from 100 different countries? Are you ready for a world filled with flakey networks, tangled databases, and impatient users?
If you're a developer and don't want to be on call for 3AM for the rest of your life, this book will help.

This module teaches students the MicrosoftÆ Solution Framework (MSF)
principles that are used in the rest of the course. Students will learn about
solution design from the perspective of Microsoftís advocated design process,
the MSF. They will learn the attributes of a good design and how the design
process fits into the MSF Process Model by using the output from one
milestone as the input for the next milestone.
After completing this module, students will be able to:
! Describe the role of design in developing effective solutions to business
The inspiration for Building Systems for Interior Designers
came when I tried to teach interior design students
about all the ways buildings support our activities and
physical needs—without an adequate textbook. I needed
an approach that supported the special concerns of the
interior designer, while connecting those issues to the
work of the rest of the building design team.
Why choose Erlang for web applications? Discover the answer hands-on by building a simple web service with this book. If you’re an experienced web developer who knows basic Erlang, you’ll learn how to work with REST, dynamic content, web sockets, and concurrency through several examples. In the process, you’ll see first-hand that Erlang is ideal for building business-critical services.
Erlang was designed for fault-tolerant, non-stop telecom systems, and building applications with it requires a large set of skills.
A power screw is a drive used in machinery to convert a rotary motion into a linear motion for power transmission. It produces uniform motion and the design of the power screw may be such that (a) Either the screw or the nut is held at rest and the other member rotates as it moves axially. A typical example of this is a screw clamp. (b) Either the screw or the nut rotates but does not move axially.
This book addresses the fundamental questions concerning the economic
reinvigoration of society through policies aimed at encouraging the development
of small enterprises. Governments in Europe, the rest of the industrialised
world and developing countries are increasingly including small enterprise
development as a central feature of economic and social policies. Nowhere
was this more evident than during the 1980s in Britain, as the Conservative
government sought to establish an enterprise culture.

When choosing which typefaces to use for a web-based project, there are a number of
limitations that are not a factor when designing for printed materials. With a print project, the
designer may use any typeface he or she desires, as the typeface is sent to the printer with the rest
of the document (layout, text, colors and images). However, when designing for the web, the
designer is only able to use the typefaces he or she knows are available on all major computer
operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows and the Apple Mac OSX. These fonts are
Once the SRS has been approved, implementation begins. Programming teams have many options:
The programmers can simply start building the code and create the objects and user interface elements.
Designers can build a user interface prototype to demonstrate to the users, stakeholders and the rest of the team. Any code used to develop the prototype is typically thrown away once the design has been finalized.
Pictures, flow charts, data flow diagrams, database design diagrams and other visual tools can be used to determine aspects of the design and architecture.
At $13 billion and roughly five percent of the total semiconductor market (2004
data) the power semiconductor market is big and growing fast, typically outgrowing
the rest of the semiconductor market.
Modern electronic appliances, while exhibiting increasing functionality, are
also expected to consume little power, for reasons of portability, thermal performance,
and environmental considerations.
The leading features content is very vaguely considered in the reports. Material selection and second
extent configurations (e.g. texture, colour and light) can best identify the answer to question A. For
example, the content is described as follows: “door handle should be made in aluminium and polished
to a glossy smooth surface without texture, to convey the cold, cynical, military-industrial terms”.
The structural principle for the door handle is its function as a tool for twisting and pulling, and for a
computer mouse a resting hand shape.
Following the publication of these results, banks with capital needs will have to submit
recapitalisation plans. Moreover, those banks that cannot see through their
recapitalisation without public aid will, in turn, have to submit restructuring plans. These
plans shall be approved before the end of November in the case of banks in which the
FROB has a stake, and before the end of December for the rest.

TOEFL stands for Test of English as a Foreign Language. It is a rest designed to measure the English-language ability of people who do not speak English as their first language and who plan to study at colleges and universities in Sourth America.
Every child has the capacity to succeed in school and in life. Yet far too many children,
especially those from poor and minority families, are placed at risk by school practices that are based
on a sorting paradigm in which some students receive high-expectations instruction while the rest are
relegated to lower quality education and lower quality futures. The sorting perspective must be
replaced by a “talent development” model that asserts that all children are capable of succeeding in
a rich and demanding curriculum with appropriate assistance and support.
This chapter provides an overview of transaction processing. It first motivates the problems of atomicity, consistency, isolation and durability, and introduces the notion of ACID transactions. It then presents some naive schemes, and their drawbacks, thereby motivating the techniques described in Chapters 16 and 17. The rest of the chapter describes the notion of schedules and the concept of serializability.
Speed Up Grammar offers a dynamic, visually oriented presentation of English Grammar for EFL students. It can be used a separate practice book or in conjunction with the rest of the Speed Up series, designed according to the principles of copmrehension-based language learning. Speed Up Grammar 2's primary aim is to facilitate EFL learners' comprehension, and a sound understanding of grammar will enable them to better grasp language input. The book focuses on receptive grammar, but some production-based exrcises are included to provide additional practice with structures.
