What is Cloud Computing?

From now on I do not state this question anymore. It will ask instead: What is not a Cloud? Any sometimes you can get the feeling the answer is nothing 🙂

I strive not to say that this is cloud computing: but backing up your data online is a very nice idea. Sadly enough HP’s will close it’s doors soon. Now it’s time to look at the other players. I still now of and Both offering free online backup up to 2GB and unlimited for a little few.

 Still the question is: is this cloud computing? I say no! This is an online service. Do not sell everything in this hype 🙂

Inspecting the integrity of your source code.

February 26th, 2009 • Comments Off on Inspecting the integrity of your source code.

Software projects grow over time. They get bigger, more stuff is added, patches added and bugs fixed. New features added, and removed and code removed. But who keeps track of the changes and ensures that your source code repository stays clean? That they are no old undeleted files, no missing unittest, that all dependecies are correct? In short: that they are no broken windows (link) and a nice clean environment a engineer can checkout, compile and run within minutes? 

I’m using the ReInCheck tool for that. Currently it is customized to support a multi module maven project which consists of OSGi bundles. But it should be easy to adopt it to your needs.
