Nowadays, building applications involves many technologies. There are technologies to render user interfaces, to retrieve and store data, to serve many users, to distribute computing, etc. Increasingly, certain requirements imply the usage of neural networks. So what is the reality of building enterprise applications with the available state-of-the-art neural network technology?
Since the beginning of the year (2013) Redhat(RH) / JBoss is working on the most robust, scalable and easy-to-use version of OptaPlanner formerly called Drools Planner. This new release marks a major milestone in both organizational and technical terms.

Be advised that changes done to system(s) or configuration(s) might be useful in some cases while in other cases not. Although I have put an effort in […]

I am not happy with ApplicationComposer because I think it has number […]

If you are unfamiliar […]

Last week I was crunching module loading for a product of ours requiring dynamically replaceable customer specific (business) module. There are dozens of poor variations on GPSModule Quick Start from original Microsoft Composite UI Application Block package […]
