  Native Client Brings Sandboxed Native Code to Chrome Web Store Apps


Wouldn’t it be great if you could create web apps using your existing C and C++ code? Native Client lets you do just that, and it is now enabled for Chrome Web Store apps in Google Chrome’s beta channel. Native Client apps live on the web platform, so you don’t need to create separate versions of your app for each operating system. Rather than relying on OS-specific APIs, Native Client apps use Pepper, a set of interfaces that provide C and C++ bindings to the capabilities of HTML5. This m...

  What we still can’t do client-side


With the rise of all these APIs and the browser race to implement them, you’d think that currently we can do pretty much everything in JavaScript and even if we currently can’t due to browser support issues, we will once the specs are implemented. Unfortunately, that’s not true. There are still things we can’t do, and there’s no specification to address them at the time of this writing and no way to do them with the APIs we already have (or if there is a way, it’s unreasonably ...

  Writing API clients in Perl and Python


I recently released a couple of API clients for the Ge.tt file sharing service, one in Perl and one in Python. (I am just a fan of the service, not an employee or contractor.) I would judge myself an "intermediate" pythonista mostly due to inexperience. It's a culture shock coming from a background of CPAN. The old joke is that Perl is just a life support system for CPAN and that is arguably true, but I am here to tell you: you may not appreciate how good Perl hackers have it with respe...

  Backend-as-a-service?


As the list of *-as-a-service’s continues to grow, I thought I’d throw one into the mix. What about the idea of a backend-as-a-service (BaaS)? The recent surge of client side Javascript frameworks along with the attractiveness of simple RESTful APIs has created an environment where server-side interaction can be reduced to simply database interaction (including validation and some computation). But why stop there? What if the server-side of the equation was simply a RESTful, schema-les...

  Output control functions in PHP


The Output Control functions in PHP allow you to control when output is sent from the script. This can be useful in several different situations, especially if you need to send headers to the browser after your script has began outputting data. The Output Control functions do not affect headers sent using header() or setcookie(), only functions such as echo and data between blocks of PHP code. These output control functions include ob_start(0, ob_clean(),ob_get_contents(), etc. To be honest, I a...

  How The Web Became Just Another Interface to the Cloud


This post is part of our ReadWriteCloud channel, which is dedicated to covering virtualization and cloud computing. The channel is sponsored by Intel and VMware. Read the case study about how Intel Xeon processors and VMware deliver unprecedented reliability in the face of RAM errors.For years, everyone was talking about the convergence of interfaces. The Web, and as a result, the browser, were "clearly" about to take over as the major platforms and cloud computing emerged. Then, in March 2008, ...

  A HTTPS client and HTTPS server demo in Java


In this post, I will create a HTTPS server and HTTPS client demo which can establish HTTPS communication between a server and a client using Java. This should be very useful when we want to test our understanding about SSL communication. We will use both a detailed SSL client and a simple HttpsURLConnection as the HTTPS client. Before creating the actual HTTPS server and HTTPS client, we first need to generate the keystore and truststore to be used by the server and client. To generate the keyst...

  HeartBleed: Inside the heart, what causes the bleeding?


Just after a few weeks since Apple's famous goto fail bug, there is one bug in OpenSSL which catches the attention from the world again. The bug is named HeartBleed, found in OpenSSL library, a famous open source library supporting lots of  SSL/TLS communication among server/client applications. The reason why this bug catches the attentions from the world is it affects almost all sites which are using the affected OpenSSL library, these includes many applications like Nginx server, some v...

  Resolving SVN error "Error validating server certificate for..."


When using SVN to connect secure server, the server needs to send its certificate to the client for verification. In some cases, the certificate sent by the server is not a trusted certificate, the client may choose to trust the certificate if the server is target server for sure.  But users may get "Error validating server certificate for 'https://...'" the next time when they try to connect to the same secure server even if they specified "p" the first time when they are prompted to accep...
