In this article by Jordan Krause, the author of the book Microsoft DirectAccess Best Practices and Troubleshooting, we will have a look at how Manage Out is configured to DirectAccess clients. DirectAccess is obviously a wonderful technology from the user's perspective. There is literally nothing that they have to do to connect to company resources; it just happens automatically whenever they have Internet access. What isn't talked about nearly as often is the fact that DirectAccess is possibly of even greater benefit to the IT department. Because DirectAccess is so seamless and automatic, your Group Policy settings, patches, scripts, and everything that you want to use to manage and manipulate those client machines is always able to run. You no longer have to wait for the user to launch a VPN or come into the office for their computer to be secured with the latest policies. You no longer have to worry about laptops being off the network for weeks at a time, and coming back into the network after having been connected to dozens of public hotspots while someone was on a vacation with it. While many of these management functions work right out of the box with a standard DirectAccess configuration, there are some functions that will need a couple of extra steps to get them working properly. That is our topic of discussion for this article.
We are going to cover the following topics:
- Pulls versus pushes
- What does Manage Out have to do with IPv6
- Creating a selective ISATAP environment
- Setting up client-side firewall rules
- RDP to a DirectAccess client
- No ISATAP with multisite DirectAccess
In this article created by Vangel Krstevski, the author of the book Hyper-V Replica Essentials, you will get an idea of conﬁguring Hyper-V Replica in various deployment scenarios, which will help you learn how to conﬁgure this new feature and improve the systems' availability in your datacenter.Read Your first step towards Hyper-V Replica in full
The article Custom Components in Visualforce by Keir Bowden, author of the book Visualforce Development Cookbook, demonstrates how easy it is to build interactive pages using Visualforce. This article also demonstrates how to create custom Visualforce components for re-use across multiple pages.
In this article, we will cover the following recipes:
- Passing attributes to components
- Updating attributes in component controllers
- Passing action methods to components
- Data-driven decimal places
- The custom iterator component
- Setting a value into a controller property
- Multiselecting related objects
- Notifying the containing page controller
In this article by Peter Ward, Peter Abreu, Pavlo Andrushkiw, Pat Esposito, Jeff Gellman, and Joel Plaut, the authors of Microssoft SharePoint 2013 Diaster Recovery Guide, explains data prevention and recovery procedures that should be applied by users with their SharePoint collaboration activities to prevent data loss.
The reader of this article is probably technical, and therefore perhaps a little surprised by the title and the topic of this article. You probably assume that DR is an IT department activity, so why should the end user even think about it?Read Disaster Recovery Techniques for End Users in full

In this article by Simon Greener and Siva Ravada, the authors of Applying and Extending Oracle Spatial, we provide a SQL schema and functions that facilitate the storage, update, and query of collections of spatial features in an Oracle database.
Oracle Spatial and Graph provides a SQL schema and functions that facilitate the storage, update, and query of collections of spatial features in an Oracle database. Oracle Spatial and Graph is the new name for the feature formerly known as Oracle Spatial. In this article, we refer to this feature as Oracle Spatial for the sake of simplicity. We also focus exclusively on spatial feature of Oracle Spatial and Graph in this article. Oracle Spatial mainly consists of the following:
- A schema (MDSYS derived from Multi-Dimensional System) that defines the storage, syntax, and semantics of the supported geometric (both vector and raster) data types
- A spatial indexing mechanism for faster querying and retrieval
- Operators, functions, and procedures for performing spatial analysis and query operations
- A persistent topology data model for working with data about nodes, edges, and faces in a topology
- A network data model for modeling and working with spatial networks
- A GeoRaster data type and associated functions that let you store, index, query, analyze, and deliver raster data
In this article written by Fabio Mazanatti Nunes and William Markito Oliveira authors of the book, Getting Started with Oracle WebLogic Server 12c: Developer's Guide, we are going to briefly introduce two concepts of Java EE development: interceptors and events. We will also see how to integrate these concepts with WebLogic services. It's a common misunderstanding that these technologies are complex and difficult to use, but after working with examples of this article, it will become clear that they are powerful yet easy to use. Along the way, we will cover WebLogic Server's logging services, which shows us how to configure the framework, how to write messages to it, and how to read them using the administration console.Read Using Events, Interceptors, and Logging Services in full
