Visualizing IoT Data with HTML5 Dashboards for Real-Time Action
Increasing IoT connectivity is forcing enterprises to find elegant solutions
to organize and visualize all incoming data from these connected devices with
re-configurable dashboard widgets to effectively allow rapid decision-making
for everything from immediate actions in tactical situations to strategic
analysis and reporting.
In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Shikhir Singh, Senior Developer Relations
Manager at Sencha, will discuss how to create HTML5 dashboards that interact
with IoT devices via Ext JS constructed components like Grids, Charts, and

Web Components: What You Need to Know in 2015
Web Components are a collection of emerging web browser standards that are on
a path to significantly change the way we develop UIs of web applications - a
paradigm shift in web development. With polyfills already available in all
modern web browsers, and full native support in Google Chrome, now is the
perfect time to learn how you can benefit from using Web Components in your
next project. In this article, you will learn about Web Components basics,
available frameworks, Custom Elements, as well as challenges and applications
associated with this new technology. After reading this article, developers
will have enough background information to begin dabbling in Web Components.
What are Web Components and can I use them?
To a growing number of developers, the web browser is a first choice platform
for building an applicati... (more)
If you've been following Sybase's announcements concerning their plans for
future versions of PowerBuilder, you'll know that they are planning for
PowerBuilder 15 to be able to generate a Silverlight application and are
looking at having it generate applications based on HTML5 as well. If you've
been following this column, you'll know I've been arguing that we need
Silverlight generation much sooner than that.
Back in November of 2008, I suggested that by the time PowerBuilder 12 was
delivered, Microsoft would have Silverlight 3 out and it would be much more
stable and ubiquitous. PowerBuilder 12 is here, and Microsoft is actually
already on Silverlight 4. According to statowl.com, Silverlight was installed
in 20% of browsers in November of 2008 and is now installed in 56% of
browsers. Riastats.com indicates that Silverlight 4 is installed in 56% of
browsers, an... (more)

Adobe is in the process - as it put it - of recognizing HTML5, the modern
answer to Adobe's sacred, Apple-loathed Flash plug-in, as something serious.
It's started to preview a free new design web motion and interaction design
tool called Edge for editing animations and interactive web page elements
Adobe's looking for feedback.
The thing is focused on adding rich motion design to new or existing HTML
projects and integrates with Adobe's web design software Dreamweaver. It's
reportedly not as good as Flash yet, but Adobe means to improve it.
It goes on sale next year.
I've been discussing HTML5 for some time now. In July of 2010, I mentioned
that I wasn't particularly concerned about PowerBuilder supporting HTML5 in
the initial PowerBuilder.NET release (12.5) because:
"HTML5 is largely still in its infancy, and there appears to be too much
opportunity for it to fragment as previous HTML standards have done." 
In December of 2010 I devoted an entire editorial to HTML5 , noting that:
"I have some basic concerns that make me reluctant to recommend using HTML5
as the basis for any line of business application development in the near
But also recommending that as far as a future version of PowerBuilder, Sybase
"Still focus on Silverlight, still work on HTML5 as well, and give us the
capability of generating applications that implement both. If the Silverlight
player is available, use that, and if not then downgrad... (more)

Welcome to part two of the four part primer to HTML5 development. In this
article, I will showcase some of the additions to the HTML5 tag library that
we can leverage to make media-rich websites and web applications in the blink
of an eye without Flash or other 3rd-party code.
Google is dumping Gears, the widgetry used to let Google Apps work offline.
The functionality has been moved to HTML 5.
The company said in a blog that there will be no new Gears releases, newer
browsers such as Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9 won't be supported with
plug-ins, and Gears will be removed from Chrome in Chrome 12.
In its place it's implemented support for application caches to replace
Gears' offline features, replaced Gears Database API with an IndexedDB API
that its "friends at Mozilla and Microsoft" - yeah, it really said that -
collaborated on, substituted a File API for Gears' Blob functionality and
implemented the geolocation, notifications and web worker APIs in Gears
natively in Chrome.
"Our mission with Gears," the post says, "was to enable more powerful web
applications. Over 5 releases, we added tons of APIs, enabling everything
from offli... (more)
HTML5 is a draft specification for the next major iteration of HTML. It
represents a break from its predecessors, HTML4 and XHTML. Some elements have
been removed and it is no longer based on SGML, an older standard for
document markup. HTML5 also has more allowances for incorrect syntax than
were present in HTML4. It has rules for parsing to allow different browsers
to display the same incorrectly formatted document in the same fashion. There
are many notable additions to HTML, such as native drawing support and
audiovisual elements. In this chapter, we discuss the features added by HTML5
Beyond Basic HTML
HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), invented by Tim Berners-Lee, has come a
long way since its inception in 1990. Figure 1-1 shows an abbreviated
timeline of HTML from the HTML5Rocks slides
IBM is buying a privately held 12-year-old Israeli outfit called Worklight
for its write-once-run-anywhere application platform and tools for
smartphones and tablets.
The price IBM is paying wasn't disclosed.
Worklight's widgetry, which can be used to create and run HTML5, hybrid and
native apps, is supposed to put new and existing consumer and employee-facing
apps on multiple mobile devices - including iPhones, BlackBerries and
Androids - and then securely connect them to a company's data center.
It includes an IDE, middleware, management and analytics and is supposed to
reduce time to market, cost and complexity.
The apparently key acquisition is expected to close this quarter and be part
of IBM's Software Group.
IBM said Worklight supports applications in industries such as financial
services, retail and healthcare, its kind of meat. For example, it said, a
HTML5 is a language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web, a core technology of the Internet. It is the latest revision of the HTML standard (originally created in 1990) and currently remains under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (web browsers, parsers etc.).
