Organizing Backbone Applications - Structure, Optimize, and Deploy

by Swarnendu De | January 2014 | Open Source

Backbone itself doesn't provide any application structure or guidance on how to organize the application source code. This makes it quite difficult for beginner-level programmers to understand how to create a folder structure, add proper namespaces, load script files in the appropriate order, and follow patterns to create a robust app architecture. We will see how to do so in this article by Swarnendu De, author of Backbone.js Patterns and Best Practices.

OSB Deployment Automation using Oracle Enterprise Manager

by Narayan Bharadwaj | August 2010 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

In most medium to large enterprises, integration developers have to deal with managing multiple initiatives spread over multiple departments. In the WebLogic and Oracle Service Bus (OSB) world, this translates to multiple WebLogic/OSB projects in multiple WebLogic domains. Typically, the integration developers are tasked with project development and testing while the WebLogic administrators are responsible for the deployment and operational support. This handoff is not entirely smooth due to different tools and processes in the development and operational organizations.

WebLogic administrators have to deal with multiple OSB projects. Typically, the OSB project deployment should follow the existing methodology in the enterprise. The operational team should centrally maintain the deployment artifacts, and this should be a different location than the one used by the development team. The deployment itself should be a well-defined procedure with a series of repeatable steps. Further, the set of best practices for the enterprise should be invoked at deployment time. This article by Narayan Bharadwaj, author of BPEL Management with Oracle Enterprise, talks about deploying multiple OSB projects to an OSB environment in a standardized manner. Specifically, this article talks about:

  • Challenges
  • Solution
  • Step-by-step exercises:
    • Viewing the Software Library
    • Uploading projects to the Software Library
    • Viewing the project deployment procedure
    • Scheduling project deployment

Our First Project – A Basic Thermometer

by Andrew K. Dennis | February 2013 | Open Source

Overview of CherryPy - A Web Application Server (Part1)

by Sylvain Hellegouarch | September 2009 | Content Management

In this two-part article by Sylvain Hellegouarch, we will see how the project is designed and structured. We will first go through a basic CherryPy example. Then we will go through the CherryPy core, the publishing-object engine, and see how it wraps the HTTP protocol in an object-oriented library. Our next step will be to explore the concept of hooking into the core, the CherryPy library, and the tool mechanism. We will then review how CherryPy handles errors and exceptions and how you can benefit from it.
