FLOM 0.5.2

Sunday 25th of May 2014 08:46:48 AM
FLOM is a distributed lock manager that can be used to avoid shell tricks and safely execute different tasks that cannot run at the same time. It manages process serialization in the same way nice manages process prioritization. It implements the same lock mode semantic proposed by VMS DLM to allow non-trivial command serialization use cases. The goal is to "just work"; everything implemented must be useful and easy to use (configuration is reduced to a bare minimum). It works inside a single system or in a network of IP connected systems.

Release Notes: This release introduces "hierarchical resources" support. Hierarchical resources allows you to model multiple level locks: they can be useful for filesystems and for abstract resources with an inherent hierarchy. Typical use cases are: "consistent backup", "consistent producers/consumers" scenarios, and so on.

Go! 0.5.0

Saturday 24th of May 2014 01:13:43 PM
Go! is a PHP 5.4 library that allows developers to add support for aspect-oriented programming (AOP) to their PHP applications. It doesn't require PECL extensions, Runkit, evals, or DI containers. The code with weaved aspects is fully readable and native, and can be easily debugged with XDebug. You can debug either classes or aspects. It can potentially* be installed in every PHP application because you don't have to change the application source code at all. As an example, with the help of 10-20 lines of code it is possible to intercept all of the public, protected, and static methods in all classes of an application, and display the name and the arguments of each method during its execution.

Release Notes: Proxies are now stored in separate files to allow more transparent debugging. A cache warmer command was added. Extended pointcut syntax for or-ed methods: ClassName->method1|method2(*). Support for read-only filesystems was added (phar, GAE, etc.). Inheritance support during class-loading and weaving.

Aniketos-SSVV 0.01

Saturday 24th of May 2014 10:48:49 AM
Aniketos-SSVV (Aniketos Security Service Validation and Verification) provides a series of modules that work together to validate the security properties of a Web service composition. The package is given a selection of service compositions (provided in the form of BPMN processes with Web services bound to the service tasks), along with the security policy to be fulfilled. The package then performs various checks on the services to establish whether each composition satisfies the policy, returning an ordered list (ordered in terms of security) of the services that do. It forms part of the larger Aniketos project comprised of four packages in total.

Release Notes: This is the initial testing release. It provides a full working toolchain from submission of BPMN plans through to the ordering of Web Service bindings with respect to security policy compliance. There's still lots of work to do and contributions (bugs, suggestions, code, documentation, etc.) from the community are welcomed.

  • An Android Phone Makes A Better Server Than You’d Think
    There was a time a few years ago when the first Android phones made it to market, that they seemed full of promise as general purpose computers. Android is sort of Linux, right, or so the story went, so of course you must be able to run Linux on an Android phone and do all sorts of cool stuff with it. As anyone who tried to root an Android phone from 2010 will tell you, it was a painful and unrewarding process. There was normally a convoluted rooting process followed by somehow squeezing your own Linux filesystem tree onto the device, then chroot-ing into it. You’d then have to set up a VNC server and VNC into it, and eventually you’d feel immensely proud of your very slow tiny-screen Linux desktop that you’d slaved over creating. It was one of those things that’s simple in theory, but extremely convoluted in practice.

February And March Linux Articles

I am aware that it is a while since I added any content to this site. To be honest I have been inundated with work and so I have had little opportunity to write anything worthwhile on this blog. I am learning new programming techniques for my day job and this has meant watching lots of Pluralsight videos and trying out what I have learned. This doesn't mean that I have been completely idle when it comes to writing but most of the content I have written has been for Lifewire.com and I wanted to point you in the direction of these articles because I'm sure many of them will be useful to the readers of this site.

Why you might want to skip Ubuntu 17.04

Linux users have one thing that often sets them apart from their Windows and Mac-using colleagues: They often spend a lot more time fixing things or finding out how to fix things. While this is great for hobbyists and enthusiasts, it’s not great for productivity. For people who need to get stuff done on their laptops and desktops, stability will often take precedence over new features. Every two years, Canonical offers up a long-term support (LTS) version of the Ubuntu Linux distribution. This year (2017) is an odd year, meaning that while there will be a new version of Ubuntu coming in April, not everyone will want to upgrade. And that’s A-OK.
