Getting Started

Installing and Getting Started with Eclipse IDE


Eclipse itself is a Java program and hence you need to have the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to use eclipse. If you want to use Eclipse for Java development, as in most cases, you will also need a (Java Development Kit) JDK.


Downloading and installing

Follow these simple steps to download and install Eclipse IDE:

Setting up Ruby 1.9.3, RubyGems and Rails 3

Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general-purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. It was also influenced by Eiffel and Lisp. Ruby was first designed and developed in the mid-1990s by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto in Japan. Ruby supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional, object oriented and imperative. It also has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management; it is therefore similar in varying respects to Smalltalk, Python, Perl, Lisp etc.

Introduction to HTML5 WebSockets

WebSocket is a TCP-based protocol like HTTP which is part of HTML 5 specification. Unlike HTTP which is a request response synchronous protocol, WebSocket provides a two way (full-duplex) communications channel over a single TCP connection and messages (textual and binary) can be sent between client and server asynchronously without the overhead of HTTP request/response life cycle.

Introduction to JavaFX

JavaFX is a software platform for creating and delivering rich internet applications (RIAs). Swing and Adobe Flex are similar technologies. Though JavaFX is primarily suitable for desktop applications, it is also suitable for enterprise applications. We will first see where JavaFX fits and its future by comparing it with similar technologies, and then we will see its version and history in brief, an overview of some JavaFX tools and later we will see some sample JavaFX programs.
