Working with Colors in Scribus

by Cedric Gemy | December 2010 | Beginner's Guides Open Source

Even though you can see lots of black-only documents (such as books and the daily press) everyday, it's true that there are more and more full-color advertising brochures being printed. So color is becoming an important printing method. An in-between approach of printing with black and only one another color is less interesting, but is still used for many documents and can be considered as a creative approach. In any case, we need to be sure that the color we have on screen matches the printed results. From this, it becomes evident that using color in Scribus is not just a click here or there but is the result of both aesthetic choices and the capacity of the printing process.

In this article by Cedric Gemy, author of Scribus 1.3.5 Beginner's Guide, we will spend some time on using some color options, and will be able to get a custom render when needed. Especially, we shall:

  • Create and apply CMYK colors
  • Create spot colors
  • Use gradients and patterns

Working with Data Application Components in SQL Server 2008 R2

by Jayaram Krishnaswamy | February 2010 | .NET Microsoft

In the August CTP Microsoft introduced Data-Tier Applications and several new features were introduced in the Nov 2009 CTP. Registering, Viewing & comparing and upgrading Data-Tier applications were added. This article by Dr. Jayaram Krishnaswamy, author of Learning SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services, shows how you may extract a Data Application Component from a SQL Server 2008 and then deploy the component to an SQL Server 2008 R2 Server. The process is Wizard driven and very easy to understand. DAC files in the field of DATA are like *.msi files for applications. Just as you would install an application from an MSI file, you would install a database package with the DAC file with the extension DACPAC. This article explains how it is done.

Working with Entities in Google Web Toolkit 2

by Shamsuddin Ahammad | January 2011 | Cookbooks Open Source

GWT 2 radically improves the web experience for users by using the existing Java tools to build a no-compromise AJAX for any modern browser. It provides a solid platform so that the other great libraries can be built on top of the GWT. Creating web applications efficiently and making them impressive, however, is not as easy as it sounds. Writing web applications for multiple browsers can be quite tasking. In addition, building, reusing, and maintaining large JavaScript code bases and AJAX components can be difficult.

In the previous article, Communicating with Server using Google Web Toolkit RPC, we saw the communication between the server and the client in GWT RPC. In this article by Shamsuddin Ahammad, author of Google Web Toolkit 2 Application Development Cookbook, we will cover:

  • Finding an entity
