Creating a theme package with ZopeSkel

by Alex Clark | July 2010 | Open Source

Plone is a powerful web application used mainly for website content management and comprised of many different, but related Python packages.

In the previous article we have learned how to install themes with Buildout and examine themes with Omelette and Python. Remember, we will not cover theme creation in depth; this is only a sample for site administrators (who may or may not be required to develop themes, in addition to managing their site).

In this article by Alex Clark, author of Plone 3.3 Site Administration , we will learn how to create a theme using the ZopeSkel tool to generate some of the boilerplate code.

Creating a Simple Report with Visual Studio 2008

by Jayaram Krishnaswamy | May 2008 | .NET Microsoft

Report Services, Analysis Services, and Integration Services are the three pillars of Business Intelligence in Microsoft's vision that continues to evolve. Reporting is a basic activity, albeit one of the most important activities of an organization because it provides a specialized and customized view of the data of various forms (relational, text, xml etc) that live in data stores. The report is useful in making business decisions, scheduling business campaigns, or assessing the competition. The report itself may be required in hard copy in several document formats such as DOC, HTML, PDF, etc. Many times it is also required to be retrieved in an interactive form from the data store and viewed on a suitable interface, including a web browser. The Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services, popularly known by its acronym SSRS, provides all that is necessary to create and manage reports and deploy them on a report server with output available in several document formats. The reader will greatly benefit from reading the several articles detailed in the author's Hodentek Blog. The content for the articles were developed using VS 2003, VS 2005, SQL 2000 and SQL 2005.

Creating a Simple Report using BIRT

by John Ward | March 2008 | Java Open Source

BIRT, which stands for Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools, is an Eclipse-based open-source reporting system for Java and J2EE-based web applications. Including the word "Tools" in the acronym is appropriate, since BIRT is in fact a collection of development tools and technologies used for developing reports utilizing the BIRT runtime framework component on your application server. BIRT isn't essentially a product, but a series of core technologies on top of which products and solutions are built, similar in fashion to the Eclipse framework.

The BIRT Report Designer, which is the most visible and familiar product built with the BIRT framework, is an Eclipse plug-in that utilizes BIRT technologies to allow users to design reports in the BIRT document format.

In this article by John Ward we will create a simple report by first setting up a simple project.

Creating a sample web scraper

by Ryan Mitchell | September 2013 | Web Development

In this article by Ryan Mitchell, author of the book Instant Web Scraping with Java, we will explain what web scraping: an automated process that involves some amount of data parsing in order to obtain only the information that you need. Although using an API (commonly by sending a GET request to a host to retrieve JSON data) might technically be considered web scraping (after all, you are retrieving and parsing data), it is generally considered to be applicable only to sites that are designed to be viewed by humans through a web browser, rather than by an automated system. By retrieving the complete HTML from a website, parsing it into an object using any number of available libraries, and isolating and processing the desired data, you are freed from the limitations and availabilities of APIs already developed to retrieve the data.

Creating a sample C#.NET application

by Guillermo Musumeci | July 2012 | .NET

Citrix XenApp is the leader of application virtualization or application delivery. Citrix was founded in 1989 and they developed the first successful product in 1993 called WinView. It provided remote access to DOS and Windows 3.1 applications on a multi-user platform. Citrix licensed Microsoft's Windows NT 3.51 source code from Microsoft; and in 1995, they shipped a multiuser version of Windows NT based on the MultiWin engine, known as WinFrame. This allowed multiple users to log on and execute applications on a WinFrame server. In 1996, Citrix licensed the MultiWin technology to Microsoft, establishing the foundation of Microsoft's Terminal Services.

This article by Guillermo Musumeci, the author of Getting Started with Citrix XenApp 6.5, will create a sample application to list all XenApp servers in our farm using Citrix XenApp Commands with managed code. Samples contained in this article are developed in Microsoft C# 2010 Express Edition.

A Kendo Mobile application is built using HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript. The framework provides JavaScript and CSS files that should be included in your project.

Creating a Recent Comments Widget in Agile

by Jeffrey Winesett | August 2010 | Open Source PHP Web Development

In this article by Jeffery Winesett, author of Agile Web Application Development with Yii1.1 and PHP5, we are going to turn our focus to the second primary goal of this iteration. As seen in the previous article Adding User Comments in Agile, we now have the ability to leave comments on issues.

We want to display to the user a list of all of the recent comments that have been left on various issues across all of the projects. This will provide a nice snapshot of user communication activity within the application. We also want to build this small block of content in a manner that will allow it to be re-used in various different locations throughout the site. This is very much in the style of web portal applications such as news forums, weather reporting applications and sites such as Yahoo and iGoogle. These small snippets of content are often referred to as portlets, and this is why we referred to building a portlet architecture at the beginning of this iteration. Again, you can refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portlet for more information on this topic.
