In this article written by Cory Simmons, the author of the book Instant Responsive Web Design provides you with all the information you need to start building responsive, mobile-friendly websites today.
Since Ethan Marcotte coined the term "responsive web design", people have been looking for the best way to do it, which has cumulated into the Goldilocks approach versus the Fluid approach, and Desktop-first versus Mobile-first. The only right answer is to do what you're most comfortable with and, as always, avoid dogma. In this section we'll go over the differences between each approach and even sample them so your RWD tool belt is well equipped.Read Different strategies to make responsive websites in full
In this article by Thomas Alexandre, the author of Scala for Java Developers, we discuss that if you are going to refactor or rewrite Java code into Scala code, there are a number of style differences that are useful to be aware of. Obviously, programming style is largely a matter of taste; however, a few guidelines generally acknowledged by the Scala community can help someone new to Scala to write easier-to-read and more maintainable code. This article is dedicated to showing some of the most common differences.Read Differences in style between Java and Scala code in full

In this article by Michael Badger, we will go through the process of discovering and modeling devices to build an inventory of the network.
We'll start this article by fine tuning our device inventory through manually adding devices to our inventory. Then we'll take a look at the main device status view and perform some routine device administration tasks. The second half of the article demonstrates the available monitoring protocols that Zenoss uses to model the devices.
We'll continue to demonstrate features using the Mill Race network, but feel free to substitute your own devices in the examples given in this article. By the time we finish this article, we'll have a detailed model of our networks.Read Device Management in Zenoss Core Network and System Monitoring: Part 1 in full
The primary focus of Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM) is to authenticate your users. PAM lets you set up the environment that the users will work in. And when the users log out, PAM tears down the working environment in a controlled way. PAM and PAM-aware applications reduce the complexity of authentication. Application programmers can take advantage of PAM, rather than developing a complete set of authentication functions. In this article by Kenneth Geisshirt, we will see how an application uses PAM for authentication and how to develop our own PAM modules.Read Development with Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) in full

PoJos – Plain Old Java Objects, are, as the name describes, simple, ordinary Java objects. They do not have to be derived from a specific class, nor do they have to implement any specific interfaces. In the modern world of Java EE development where the latest frameworks have made enterprise development easier, wouldn't it be good if we could develop SOA based applications using PoJos? Fortunately, GlassFish ESB (OpenESB) allows us to do this using the PoJo Service Engine. In this article by David Salter, author of Building SOA-Based Composite Applications Using NetBeans IDE 6 and Seam 2.x Web Development, we will cover:
- GlassFish ESB
- Creating a PoJo and Deploying to GlassFish ESB
- Creating A SOAP Binding for PoJos
- Testing the Composite Application
In this article series by Masoud Kalali, author of GlassFish Security, we are going to develop a secure Java EE application with all standard modules including Web, EJB, and application client modules.Read Developing Secure Java EE Applications in GlassFish in full
