What is a WIDGET?
ApacheBench is a command line computer program for measuring the performance of HTTP web servers, in particular the Apache HTTP Server. It was designed to give an idea of the performance that a given Apache installation can provide. In particular, it shows how many requests per second the server is capable of serving.
The ab tool comes bundled with the standard Apache source distribution, and like the Apache web server itself, is free, open source software and distributed under the terms of the Apache License.

- Used for repeating simple UI components
- Repetition can be controlled by an array
- Repeater components look like containers in the code but they are not containers
- Repeaters don’t have automatic layout functionality of containers.
- Purpose of using: To form a series of subcomponents as per the contents of a specified data provider.
- For dealing with large amount of data; use controls like HorizontalList, TileList, and List
This article is consolidation of the best practices which are followed or taken care during the development when a web page is styled using a external or inline style sheet referred to as CSS (Cascading Style Sheet). The best practices are arrived at after evaluating and analyzing the working web pages. Some of the concepts shared in this article are widely available on the internet but few are exclusively on the basis of experience and learning. Cascading style sheets are, in general terms, a collection of formatting rules that control the appearance, or presentation, of content on a web page. Implementing CSS within a page or site is done in one of three ways
Open Source Business Intelligence has come of with age and has evolved with state of the art technologies confronting each other leaving end user excited between what to choose. As each technology has its own pros and cons, so is the expectation. In this article we would be paying a visit to one of the most widely used Open Source Business Intelligence Reporting Technologies.
This Comparison is done for the Alpha version of JavaFX.
The RIA world has been seeing intensified competition since last year’s releases of Microsoft Silverlight and Sun JavaFX, which joined the Adobe Flex/AIR to become the major RIA development platforms. Even though all three of them intent to reach the the same goal, richer user experience and more creative media delivering, the technologies behind them are vast different. But how different from a RIA developer’s perspective? Let’s do a quick comparison by writing a small program on these three platforms.
The purpose of this article is to make Comparative study over win runner and QTP (Automation testing tools for Functionality)
Mercury Win Runner is the standard functional testing solution for enterprise IT
Applications. It captures, verifies, and replays user interactions automatically, so
You can identify defects and ensure that business processes work as designed. The scripting language use in winrunner is TSL.
The scripts you create with Mercury Interactive systems are written in Test Script Language (TSL). TSL is an enhanced, C-like programming language designed for testing. At the heart of Mercury Interactive’s integrated testing environment, TSL is high-level and easy to use. It combines the power and flexibility of conventional programming languages with functions specifically developed for use with Mercury Interactive’s products. This enables you to modify recorded material or to program sophisticated test suites.

Flex is a highly productive, free open source framework for building and maintaining expressive web applications that deploy consistently on all major browsers, desktops, and operating systems. While Flex applications can be built using only the free open source framework, developers can use Adobe® Flex® Builder™ software to dramatically accelerate development.
Flex is very versatile in its use and implementation. It can used with variety of server side technologies like Java, PHP, Cold-Fusion etc. Flex provides three types of Remote procedure Call Services to interact with the server. These RPC’s are Web-Services which makes soap calls to the server, HTTP service calls send HTTP request and responses. And Remote Object call service which send binary call using HTTP request packets via AMF3 protocols. The remote object call is the fastest service call to the remote servers as the it provides the simplest de serialization, since the data transfer is in binary format which flash player understands easily.

This article will act as an introduction to the concept of .Net’s Code Access Security and try to do a comparison between .Net’s Code Access Security and J2EE’s Code Access Security.
In .Net, the Common Language Runtime (CLR) allows code to perform only those operations that the code has permission to perform. So CAS is the CLR’s security system that enforces security policies by preventing unauthorized access to protected resources and operations. Using the Code Access Security, you can do the following:
* Restrict what your code can do
* Restrict which code can call your code
* Identify code
Adobe Flex is a complete, powerful application development and deployment solution for creating and delivering cross-platform Rich Internet Applications (RIAs).
Adobe had partnered with SAP, BO, Oracle, and Salesforce.com in building RIAs solutions with its partners solutions. SAP is the front runner in this initiative and it has allowed Flex to fully harness the power of SAP Enterprise Services.
Flex enables companies to increase productivity and innovation while reducing operational costs through easy to use, efficient Web applications for employees, customers and partners. The rich data visualization capabilities of the platform allow the creation of powerful decision support applications, processing high volumes of data. Business process applications that span multiple siloed systems and require multiple steps can be streamlined into a single-page application that increases usability and throughput.
