  • How to Create an Ajax Autocomplete Text Field: Part 1 (2008-08-17 14:02:09)
    WebReference: "It's been a voyage of discovery and learning, but our series on the Ajax Autocomplete Control is drawing to a close. Along the way, we learned about the Eclipse IDE, the Eclipse Web Project, JSP pages, how to add a Tomcat server to the IDE, JavaScript, Ajax, JSON and CSS. This week we wrap up the series by adding code to process ENTER and TAB keystrokes, as well as keeping the list open when returning from another page."

  • OpenGL 3.0, GLSL 1.30 Released (2008-08-17 10:02:09)
    Phoronix: "...the Khronos Group has announced the release of the OpenGL 3.0 API specification and the GLSL 1.30 shading language specification. This is the first major update to this cross-platform 3D programming API since the OpenGL 2.1 release two years ago."

  • Intro to PHP + Oracle (2008-08-17 06:02:09)
    Database Journal: "If you're already familiar with PHP for database backed web-applications, you're probably also familiar with LAMP, O'Reilly's acronym for the hugely popular Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP stack of software. For you then to jump to Oracle will be a small step, as you'll simply have to learn some new calls that make up the oci8 library. If you're new to PHP as well, there's a bit more to learn, but we will point you on the right track to get you started with the basics, and links to resources that'll help you go further."

    IBM Developerworks: "Almost three years ago, developerWorks published "Using the Ruby Development Tools plug-in for Eclipse," which introduced some of the features found in the Ruby Development Tools (RDT) plug-in for Eclipse. Current at the time was V0.5. We revisit that tool in this article. Today, RDT is called Aptana RadRails and is available as a plug-in for Aptana Studio or Eclipse. This article introduces some of the plug-in's new features."
