about: Today Mozilla Labs is releasing Operator, a microformat detection extension developed by Michael Kaply at IBM. Operator demonstrates the usefulness of semantic information on the Web, in real world scenarios.
about: Serving secure pages on a website is made a lot easier by having both your secure and insecure pages served by the same files - all you need to do is change the scheme from http:// to https:// and you're done. But how do you manage which pages should redirect to the secure server? And how do you make sure you redirect users back when they're finished submitting sensitive information?
about: In the end, exactly those web-forms are responsible for the first contact with potential customers. Let’s take a look, which modern solutions a web-developer can use, designing his/her next css-based form.
about: Mais voilà que pour contrer cette épidémie pernicieuse, on vient d’associer le Web sémantique à la version 3.0 du Web. Voir article sur Wikipedia. Bonne idée? Pas sûr. Le simple fait de donner des numéros de version au terme Web implique une amélioration commerciale et non une évolution de la technologie. Les gens achètent les nouvelles versions… dans le cas du Web, ils doivent d’abord les faire! Si on veut être précis, il faudrait dire Web-2 v. 0.1a.
about: Du gigantesque catalogue qu'il est, le web pourrait se transformer pour apporter des réponses complètes à des requêtes en langage naturel, et favoriser l’émergence de nouvelles formes d'intelligence collective. Certains l'appellent le "web 3.0".
about: In this paper, we present our work aimed at improving retrieval and navigation services on bibliographic data. In this system, knowledge about the domain of documents (publications) is stored in an ontology, a formal model of conceptual knowledge. The ontology is employed to represent concepts and their relationships in order to carry out reasoning about documents. Reasoning helps researchers by providing more efficient document retrieval and navigation.
about: Cette étude montre les possibilités d’intégration d’AJAX au sein d’applications Web en présentant et comparant 11 frameworks d’actualité : Prototype, jQuery, Dojo, Moo.Fx, Scriptaculous, Yahoo !UI, Mochikit, Rialto, Echo2, Microsoft Atlas et Google Web Toolkit.
about: Users and software agents should be able to discover, invoke, compose, and monitor Web resources offering particular services and having particular properties, and should be able to do so with a high degree of automation if desired. Powerful tools should be enabled by service descriptions, across the Web service lifecycle. OWL-S (formerly DAML-S) is an ontology of services that makes these functionalities possible. In this submission we describe the overall structure of the ontology and its three main parts: the service profile for advertising and discovering services; the process model, which gives a detailed description of a service's operation; and the grounding, which provides details on how to interoperate with a service, via messages.
about: The type of widgets that are addressed by this document are usually small client-side applications for displaying and updating remote data, packaged in a way to allow a single download and installation on a client machine. The widget may execute outside of the typical web browser interface. Examples include clocks, stock tickers, news casters, games and weather forecasters. Some existing industry solutions go by the names "widgets", "gadgets" or "modules".
about: Derrière ce titre que Franz Schubert ne renierait pas se cachent nos interrogations au sujet de l’excellent framework Symfony qui, à peine un an après son lancement, s’impose peu à peu sur le devant de la scène PHP.
about: So who should start a startup? Someone who is a good hacker, between about 23 and 38, and who wants to solve the money problem in one shot instead of getting paid gradually over a conventional working life.
about: The idea behind PHPSecInfo is to provide an equivalent to the phpinfo() function that reports security information about the PHP environment, and offers suggestions for improvement. It is not a replacement for secure development techniques, and does not do any kind of code or app auditing, but can be a useful tool in a multilayered security approach.
about: SMSconnect vous permet de lancer tous les services les plus populaires sur mobile, du quiz au vote en passant par le service d'abonnement de nouvelles, mais également des applications résolument web 2.0 avec SMSpay qui vous permet de monétiser des sections entières de votre site web ou encore feed2SMS qui vous permet de diffuser votre flux RSS sur mobile tout en générant des revenus additionnels.
about: This document defines an alternative means of serializing the results of the SPARQL ASK and SELECT query forms using JSON, a lightweight representation format which emphasizes concision and legibility. (one day my son, that will work...)
about: PingtheSemanticWeb.com is a web service archiving the location of recently created/updated FOAF, DOAP or SIOC RDF documents on the Web. If one of those documents is updated, its author can notify the service that the document have been updated by pinging it with the URL of the document. PingtheSemanticWeb.com is used by crawlers or other type of software agents to know when and where the latest updated FOAF, DOAP and SIOC documents can be found. So it requests a list of recently updated documents as a starting location to crawl the semantic web.
about: ClickTale shows you the full story: every mouse movement, every click and every scrolling action. By using ClickTale you will gain insights that will improve your website's usability, enhance navigation, and increase effectiveness.
about: The PHP Exif Library (PEL) lets you manipulating Exif (Exchangeable Image File Format) data. This is the data that digital cameras place in their images, such as the date and time, shutter speed, ISO value and so on.
about: Wapiti allows you to audit the security of your web applications. It performs "black-box" scans, i.e. it does not study the source code of the application but will scans the webpages of the deployed webapp, looking for scripts and forms where it can inject data. Once it gets this list, Wapiti acts like a fuzzer, injecting payloads to see if a script is vulnerable.
about: The Akelos Framework uses PHP as its language for templates, but sometimes looping and printing PHP vars becomes a repetitive task that makes your view templates look not beauty. The Akelos Framework doesn't want to force you to learn another useless template language. You have the power of PHP on your templates, but in some cases there is need for a graphic designer to create templates for views, so we have added a very limited syntax that allows you to create simple but powerful templates on WYSIWYG HTML editors.
about: GeoRSS is a simple proposal for geo-enabling, or tagging, “really simple syndication” (RSS) feeds with location information. GeoRSS standardizes the way in which “where” is encoded with enough simplicity and descriptive power to satisfy most needs to describe the location of Web content. It is extensible and upwardly-compatible with more sophisticated formats like the OGC GML (Geography Markup Language®).
about: The GNU/Linux Semantic Storage System (GLS³) is a solution designed to facilitate the management and retrieval of your data. It is a solution that distances you from thinking about Where you store your data to What your data is. With GLS³, you can organize and retrieve your data based on their semantics, based on What they mean to you, and not based on their hierarchical location.
about: SIOC (Semantically Interlinked Online Communities) is an ontology for describing discussion forums and posts on topic threads in online community sites. This includes but is not limited to: blogs, bulletin boards, mailing lists, newsgroups, etc.
about: As is well known, caching the results of database queries can dramatically improve script execution time and minimize the load on the database server. This technique can be especially effective if the data you are dealing with is quite static. This is because many data requests to a remote database may be eventually satisfied from the local cache, thus avoiding the need to make a connection to the database, execute the query, and fetch the results.
about: Bien qu’elle ait été lancée par le W3C dés 1998, l’initiative du Web sémantique  reste encore aujourd’hui marginale face aux problématiques courantes du Web, comme par exemple la publication de contenu. Pourtant, le WS est déjà riche de nombreux langages et outils qui peuvent trouver leur place au sein de l’entreprise, et améliorer la manière dont celle-ci traite, organise et publie ses données.
