How To Integrate wsdl and xsd Files By Using wsdl.exe

Dec 14

When you work inside platform independent teams, web services and service oriented approaches are valuable. Especially in telecommunication sector, systems are mostly constructed on Unix – Linux based OS platforms and Java, C,  C++, Perl based software products and services. But the world is converging to each other day by day, companies share their services with outside or corporate with other companies. Value Added Service (for example the business corporation between a telecom company and a finance company) are the most chosen way of making a difference.

In a world that has more broaden borders than it has never before changes the architectures and design types of software. Contract First Design comes into prominence inside this kind of world. Teams or companies that uses different types of platform and works for the same project goal, starts to design their systems as black boxes tries to identify communication methods and services that they will share with each other.

In xml web services world this means to prepare your wsdl file to describe what kind of functionality you share with outsiders and xsd files that provides necessary metadata to describe data that will transform through communication channel. These are boundaries of these two black box systems which are basically the fundamentals of successful integration project.

Texmaker for Preparing LaTeX Documents

Texmaker for Preparing LaTeX Documents

Dec 11

In my daily life, I generally use Microsoft Office tools for preparing documents I need. Because, I mostly prepare basic documents which do not need flexibility or specific design and they don’t include any scientific/technical content. But, if I need these elements for any type of document(letter,article or presentation), I definitely choose to use LaTeX with appropriate editor. I was using WinEDT which is a paid application as my editor until couple of days ago. My friend/colleague Burak Çizmeci told me about Texmaker[1] which is a free, open source and multi-platform TeX/LaTeX editor. I have just used it and decided to not to buy new WinEDT license anymore. It’s as flexible as it could be and especially I like efficiency of its spell-checking and auto-complete features. I absolutely recommend this application for preparing LaTeX documents, it is free and skillful. And I want to thank Burak for enlightening suggestion.

Mobile World–Can Microsoft Survive?

Mobile World–Can Microsoft Survive?

Nov 23

In the last decade , people always talk about crash and burn of Microsoft in the mobile world. I mostly agreed with them until nowadays. I don’t know how but Microsoft really messed up many things in online and also mobile worlds. A huge IT company should not have been done the mistakes of Microsoft, it doesn’t really suit the profile and class of the company. Who created the most user friendly and easy to use operating system should not make a mobile operating system as bad as Windows Mobile. Microsoft couldn’t see the rise of the mobile world until they saw the shares of Internet attached devices using Windows in 2010 and 2011 and so they did not make the expected movements and give necessary importance to it.
