Improving the performance of XML based technologies by caching and reusing information

Improving the performance of XML based technologies by caching and reusing information. Is it possible? Abstract: The growing synergy between Web Services and Grid or cloud based technologies is enabling profound, dynamic interactions between applications dispersed in geographic, institutional, and conceptual space. Such deep interoperability requires the simplicity, robustness, and extensibility for which XML has…

Client Side Estimation of a Remote Service Execution

Is it possible to achieve a Client Side Estimation of a Remote Service Execution? Abstract: Many use cases, concerning the monitoring and controlling of real physical instruments, demand deep interaction between users and services that virtualize the access to such instruments/devices. In addition, in order to realize high interoperable solutions, SOA-based Web/Grid Service technologies must…

The API Economy: Resources for Programming the Web

The API economy is an effective way to leverage the possibility of programming the Web. The definition of this practice is relatively simple: API Economy (sometimes known as API-driven economy) simply refers to the exchange of value between consumers and providers through APIs. An application programming interface (or API) is a computing interface which defines…

Front End Development, Back End Development, and Full Stack Developers

Developing software is more and more a collaborative activity where multiple experts interact for delivering a particular solution. Strictly talking about development and without including supporting activities, we can divide programmers as specialized in front-end development or back-end development. Let’s try to define these activities. We can define front-end-development as the practice of converting data…
