Also, Stencil can be used as a drop-in replacement for traditional front-end frameworks. Additionally, Stencil can generate components with polyfills available for browsers that need them.To read this article in full, please click her […]

  • Indirect access: SAP offers a new way to pay
    by Peter Sayer on 10 april 2018 at 09:05

    SAP is inviting customers to pay for its software per record created when they access it indirectly through third-party apps and services, and not per named user as it does today.It’s also promising to build a wall between its sales and license auditing departments, so that customers don’t feel threatened during commercial negotiations.The new deal could end licensing uncertainty for companies like Diageo, which is embroiled in a £55 million (US$78 million) lawsuit with SAP because it allowed staff and customers to indirectly access data held in an SAP system through a Salesforce.com interface. Diageo maintained that its existing SAP license covered such indirect access, while a U.K. court has sided with SAP, which argued the license required a fee be paid for named users even if they only accessed the system indirectly.To read this article in full, please click her […]

    When Apple’s latest macOS update blanked external screens, third-party hardware vendors scrambled to warn customers and caused Mac users to call each other names.macOS 10.13.4, which Apple released March 29 and immediately began pushing to users, has crippled DisplayLink, the technology from the same-named company that allows multiple monitors to be connected to one PC, often through a hardware dock, via USB, Ethernet or even Wi-Fi.

  • If you develop software with Microsoft, you now own the rights
    by Paul Krill on 5 april 2018 at 22:15

    Microsoft will let customers share intellectual property developed in partnership with the company. The move aligns with what analysts expect will be a growing concern for IT, with more and more enterprises becoming involved in software development.There has been confusion over who owns newly created intellectual property and concern that without an approach that ensures customers own key patents to their solutions, technology companies like Microsoft will enter those customers’ markets and compete against them with the very techhnology they codeveloped.[ Kotlin, Slack, TensorFlow, Vue.js, and more: See InfoWorld’s 2018 Technology of the Year Award winners. | Cut to the key news and issues in cutting-edge enterprise technology with the InfoWorld Daily newsletter. ]Microsoft’s initiative puts the company ahead of the curve on this issue, said Patrick Moorhead, president of the analyst firm Moor Insights & Strategy. “The reality is, most major companies will become [intellectual property] creators in the future, but they don’t know it yet,” said Moorhead. “What Microsoft announced helps those companies protect their [intellectual property] and Microsoft’s in a very open and consistent way.

  • What’s new in the Sails Node.js framework
    by Paul Krill on 5 april 2018 at 22:00

    Sails, an MVC web framework for building Node.js applications also known as Sails.js, is now in Version 1.0 production status, featuring an async/await capability from the ECMAScript 2017 specification that promises to improve developer productivity.Async/await promises sizable gains in productivity and fewer lines of code. It lets server-side JavaScript code be written with the await keyword, instead of using lower-level, more-fragile flow control functions such as nested callbacks and promise chains. “Callback hell,” the most common source of bugs and stability issues in Node.js and Sails applications, is ended with async/await.

    by Gregg Keizer on 28 maart 2018 at 11:01
