MongoDB is a popular, open source, scale-out NoSQL database that provides high throughput for your data-driven applications. Unlikenbsp;relational databases such as SQL Server, Oracle, and MySQL, which store data in tables according to a rigid schema, MongoDB stores data in documents with flexible schema.

There are many such non-relational databases around including CouchDB, RavenDB, and Couchbase. However, I like MongoDB primarily due to its scalability, speed, and dynamic querying capabilities.MongoDB uses the BSON format under the hood to represent the JSON documents at the heart of the data store.

BSON or “Binary JSONrdquo; is a lightweight and efficient binary-encoded data serialization format that supports fast data traversal and searches.

BSON also allows MongoDB to support data typesmdash;namely int, long, date, floating point, and decimal128mdash;not represented in JSON. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Oraclersquo;s revamped release plan for standard Java means the upcoming Java Development Kit 9 will not be designated for long-term support. Nevertheless, the company believes developers will want it for the new capabilities it brings.Under a plan put forth by Oracle on September 6, there will be feature releases of Java, driven by one or a few significant new features, every six months.

Every three years, the feature release will be a long-term support release, with the next long-term support release, to be called Java 18.9, arriving in September 2018. (The version designation of 18.9 stipulates the year and month of the releasersquo;s arrival.) Under the plan, Java 9nbsp;is relegated to feature release status.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Das U-Boot is a device bootloader that can read its configuration from an AES encrypted file.

For devices utilizing this environment encryption mode,U-Boot's use of a zero initialization vector and improper handling of an error condition may allow attacks against the underlying cryptographic implementation and allow an attacker to decrypt the data.
Oracle will speed up the releases of standard Java, with a new release Java Development Kit (JDK) coming every six months and a long-term support version that gets updated every three years.

As a result, the next version of Java will be released in March 2018, six months after this monthrsquo;s planned Java 9 release.Until now, Oracle has delivered major releases of Java every two years or so, anchored by a major feature or two.

But that anchor-feature-driven approach has caused delays in the upcoming JDK 9, which is finally due to arrive on September 21 after being stalled by development of its complex modularity feature.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
