Progressive web apps challenge native mobile apps

Native mobile apps have generally had the edge when it comes to user experience over web-based apps.

But the tide is turning, with progressive web appsnbsp;— a technology spearheaded by Google and Mozillamdash;catching on at major web properties and developer tools becoming available.“Wersquo;re starting to see a lot of large companies come back to the web because of its low friction,” said Addy Osmani, an engineering manager on Googlersquo;s Chrome team. He cited Lyft and Twitter as examples.[ Get started: How to launch the right mobile development strategy. | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorld's App Dev Report newsletter. ]Twitterrsquo;s progressive web app, Twitter Lite, takes up less than 1MB of memory, compared to more than 100MB for its native iOS app and 23MB for its native Android app, Osmani said.

CheerpJ converts Java apps into JavaScript for the web

Melding Java and web development, CheerpJ is being readied as compiler technology that takes Java bytecode and turns it into JavaScript, for execution in browsers.

Based on the LLVM/Clang compiler platform as well as Learning Technologiesrsquo; own Cheerp C++-to-JavaScript compiler, CheerpJ takes Java bytecode and turns it into JavaScript without needing the Java source.In CheerpJ, applications and Java libraries are converted to web applications, so there is no need for plug-ins or Java installations.
Server-side Java components can become client-side browser-based libraries while native Java code serves as platform-independent components for the Node.js server-side JavaScript platform.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Honeypots and the Internet of Things

According to Gartner, there are currently over 6 billion IoT devices on the planet. Such a huge number of potentially vulnerable gadgets could not possibly go unnoticed by cybercriminals. As of May 2017, Kaspersky Lab’s collections included several thousand different malware samples for IoT devices, about half of which were detected in 2017.

Forget the GUI: The return of the command line

If you immerse yourself in Microsoft history for long enough, yoursquo;ll come across more than one story about staff trying to add more command-line features to its operating systems.

The plans go up the corporate tree, to the rarified heights of a Bill Gates review, where the executives ask, “What part of the name Windows do you have a problem with?”Corporate legends aside, Windows on both the desktop and server have long been the province of GUIs, point-and-click experiences driving everything from files on desktop PCs to managing entire virtual networks in the public cloud.

That was all very well when you were dealing with tens of PCs and a handful of servers in an office.
It even still worked for client-server enterprise applications or a small farm of web servers.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

As we discovered, this type of attack successfully allows an intruder to retrieve user authentication data – even when the targeted system is locked.

WebAssembly wins! Google pulls plug on PNaCl

For Google, it is time to ring out the old and ring in the new when it comes to running native code in the browser.

To this end, Google is making the WebAssembly portable code format its solution for native code going forward, displacing the companyrsquo;s Portable Native Client (PNaCl).PNaCl lacked the desired cross-browser compatibility offered by WebAssembly, the company said. PNaCl support will be removed early next year except in Chrome Apps and Extensions.

Google said usage of PNACl is low enough to warrant deprecation and that WebAssembly has a vibrant ecosystem, making it a better fit. “Historically, running native code on the web required a browser plugin.
In 2013, we introduced the PNaCl sandbox to provide a means of building safe, portable, high-performance apps without plugins,” Googlersquo;s Brad Nelson, software engineer on NaCl, PNaCl, and WebAssembly, said. “Although this worked well in Chrome, it did not provide a solution that worked seamlessly across all browsers.”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
