If you’re a frequent DZone visitor, then chances are you’ve read a comic by Daniel Stori this year. He has kept us laughing through all 63 of his comics that have published to our site this year (not to mention all the bonus clips he publishes on his o…Read more
For most of us around the DZone office, 2017 seemed to go by in a blur. At the same time, it’s incredible to see how much has changed in 365 days. For instance, this time last year, we were sitting at about 4.3 million pageviews over the course of 30 d…Read more

This article will focus on how to create an Apache Ignite cluster that can support the reading and writing of user-defined objects in a common storage format. This is particularly useful in situations where applications need to work with objects but …Read more
1) In the following video, I will highlight the problems faced by monolithic applications.
2) The following video will describe Reactive Applications.
Thanks to Eric Berg, Chief Product Officer at Okta for sharing the advancements made to the Okta Identity Cloud to power a new independent directory standard and integration ecosystem for the extended enterprise. Updates include a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) interface for Okta Universal Directory, an expanded, richer Okta Integration Network, automated access for customers and partners, and end-to-end auditing.
â€œWhile the benefits of the cloud have been well established for years, many organizations are still unable to take full advantage of innovative new services due to their reliance on legacy infrastructure, which adds complexity and cost to implement and use,â€� said Eric. â€œModern IT requires a dynamic system that can help them match the racecar pace of technology innovation. Weâ€™re investing heavily in building on our independent and neutral platform to manage these demands â€“ and todayâ€™s new features make the Okta Identity Cloud the most comprehensive integration solution available for businesses today.â€�Read more

RESTful API Overview
API (Application Programming Interface) endpoints are the connections between your application and the rest of the developer community. You can decide to open up your data source to the…
AWS is an extremely popular and trusted cloud platform for managing MongoDB deployments, but the question of XFS vs EXT4 has many developers wondering which Linux file system will give them the best performance for their applications. MongoDBâ€™s official guide on deploying to production recommends using the XFS file system on Linux, especially when deploying the WiredTiger storage engine. The recommendation, however, doesnâ€™t tell us why we should expect a performance boost or what kind of performance gains weâ€™ll experience. We decided to get to the bottom of it by quantitatively investigating MongoDB performance on XFS so you can compare whether EXT4 is a better choice for your AWS EC2 instances.
XFS File System
XFS is a highly scalable, high-performance 64-bit journaling file system developed at SGI in 1993 and ported to Linux in 2002. It supports highly parallel I/O and filesystem sizes up to 9 Exabytes, and journals only the file system metadata, not the user data. Some key performance enhancing features of XFS are:Read more
People have been talking about machine learning for a few years now since it promises vast benefits that could impact every aspect of human life. Efforts are also being made to develop machine learning to the point where there will be no human intervention necessary. The area of artificial intelligence that uses machine learning models to learn from data is seen as the bright future of science â€” machine learning being the next level of evolution in automation.
When coupled with the power of cloud computing, machine learning could be even more beneficial. This amalgamation is termed as “the intelligent cloud.” The current usage of cloud involves computing, storage, and networking. But with machine learning infused with the cloud, the capabilities of the cloud will increase vastly. The intelligent cloud is capable of learning from the vast amount of data stored in it to build up predictions and analyze situations. This will serve as an intelligent platform to perform tasks more efficiently.Read more
We want to think of ourselves as good workers. We try to do more, do it faster, and often end up staying longer at work. We do work hard, but does that mean that we are really being productive?
Surprisingly, the answer is no. As disappointing as it may sound, working hard doesnâ€™t always mean working efficiently. Letâ€™s look closer at what true productivity means.Read more
