The Eclipse Foundation is presenting Helios In Action - a virtual conference where you can interact with project leads involved in the release and see demos of the new features.
With this said, I recently decided that the PsychoPath XPath processor needed to migrate off of the Athena Common build script that it had been using to a Maven based build.
Join Java and Eclipse expert Phil Quitslund as he presents best practices for creating effective, consistent, and robust user interface tests.
Integrating BIRT with Spring in a Web applicationand Eclipse BIRT in Spring web applicationsare a couple of examples.There is not much information on how to include Spring Beans within a report design. Last week we held our first EclipseLink Summit here in Ottawa with attendees from Canada, Germany, India, and the US. We just need 189 more people to join by the end of July to hit our goal of 360 Friends of Helios.  If you haven’t already joined please consider joining today.
Side note: Last August after the disaster with bugfix propagation between different branches in the FindBugs project I've started to looking for a replacement for the SVN (which was the evil system).
There are no groundbreaking changes - mostly some code polishing and few small enhancements, as most of my plugins are mature enough.
At this year's Eclipse Summit Europe there was a very nice Xtext-related talk given by Sebastian Benz who is working at BMW Car IT.The talk was about how they used Xtext in order to develop a textual syntax and corresponding IDE for the AUTOSAR standard. UTM codes are simple snippets of code appended to the end of URLs that communicate with the GA code on your website. This data can power big picture decisions like which channels you should be investing in, what changes to make to the site to improve user experience, and so much more. Luckily, Google AdWords and some other platforms like Bing Ads have built in functionality to tag your URLs without any extra work. Luckily, Google has created a very simple tool to help us out with this, because if you are like me, the idea of writing custom URL parameters is not the most comforting. Fill out this quick form and Google will generate a ready-made custom URL that you can literally copy and paste.
Amazon and Google are duking it out for your voice-controlled living room for some very specific, obvious reasons.
It matters because the short-hand language of digital sentiment is being created, right now, right in front of us.
We rightly evaluate this data against our user journey maps, and adjust our models based on how accurately we predicted some final outcome (hopefully a huge conversion). Hint: Listening to customers talk to each other about your products in a store is really similar. Today, Facebook is talking about how to let its users express themselves more fully or accurately, without opening the door too much wider to the troll in each of us. But see this move for what it truly is: step one toward a quantum leap forward in sentiment mining for marketing. The biggest question on my mind at this point is still whether Facebook can act patiently enough to make these new emotional signs a social norm, or if they’ll rush in and create a passing fancy. If the holy grail of digital marketing is surfacing sentiment, at scale, and turning that into truly actionable insight, the process of collecting it must be at worst benign.
Oh, and by the way, whoever does pull off creating the shorthand language for sharing sentiment between people wins social media for the next ten years.
The post Mixed Emotions – Facebook grapples with the art of surfacing sentiment appeared first on Portent. ADVICE WARNING – This is part of a series of SEO ranking tests that look at traditional ranking signals and their effects on SERP positions. Quality Score (QS) can also be a helpful warning signal when there are particular ad groups or campaigns in a PPC account that need to be optimized; as a rule of thumb, the better your Quality Score, the better your ads perform. Quality Score is comprised of several things, such as expected clickthrough rate, ad relevance, and landing page experience. To improve ad position for a given keyword, advertisers are presented with two options: increase the maximum cost-per-click bid, or improve the Quality Score of the keyword. Understanding what Quality Score is and how it plays into your PPC performance is important for all PPC advertisers to understand. Landing page quality: The landing page associated with each ad and keyword should be relevant to the search query, useful, and user-friendly.
Targeted devices: How well the ad performs on different devices, such as laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. Quality Score is a reflection of the health of your campaigns and influences overall account performance. Actual cost per click (CPC): Higher Quality Scores allow you to bid for top positions, so achieving a high QS can help stretch your PPC budget. Ad position and top of page bid estimate: High QS can lead to higher ad positions which will help clickthrough rates. Cost per conversion: By paying less per click, advertisers tracking conversions could see significant decreases in the cost they pay per conversion. And we used to talk a lot about apps, and about whether to use an HTML web app vs a native app, how hard it was for the average app to stand out from all the noise in the app store, and about app store optimization (ASO) harking back to the old days of SEO, with its emphasis on keywords for ranking.
So what are the key ways in which we're seeing this shift in user behavior change our approach to SEO? A new version of the update has recently rolled out, so we can expect to see further impact from this in the next few months. What should we do about it?The key action here is to ensure that your site passes the mobile-friendly test, and to check Google Search Console reports for mobile-specific errors. Site speed and page load timesHand in hand with the focus on mobile-friendliness, there is also a push towards improving site speed and page load times. Google are not the only ones addressing this issue: Facebook Instant Articles and Apple Newsstand both use in-app versions of content pages to speed up the loading process, and some publishers have also created their own native apps to help solve this. Google’s solution to this is their Accelerated Mobile Pages Project (AMP), which allows publishers and creators of editorial content to build versions of their pages with stripped-back, skeleton HTML, following a set of rules which guarantee speed and force distribution (an important thing to be aware of if you choose to utilize this approach). Mobile-first design of SERPsThis third key area is around Google making desktop search look and feel more like mobile search.
What should we do about it?There’s not a huge amount that can be done to address this trend head-on. In addition, you may want to shift some of your focus towards building out your top-of-funnel search strategy, to target less commercial keywords where you will have fewer paid ads to compete with.
App integration with web searchGoogle needs to find a way to integrate app content with the rest of the web, or they risk becoming irrelevant. The solution for Google is to start indexing and serving app content in the web search results, and this is what they are trying to do with their work around app indexation and app streaming.
What should we do about it?If you don’t already have an app, this may not be relevant to you.
Where’s this all heading?I believe that all of these trends are supporting a wider push by Google towards their goal of building the ultimate, intelligent personal assistant. And already, users are realizing that they can provide fewer contextual signals within their keyword search and the search engine will still know what they’re asking. These are all signals which in the future could be used to determine the most relevant results to serve - potentially before you even ask. When you combine all of these signals with the integration of the public index (what we currently think of as the Google search index), the private index (your emails, photos, calendar, etc) and app content, Google could have the ability to know as much about your day to day activities as any human PA. Read the full article here New Evidence: Does Google Count Keywords in Anchor Text In Internal Links? If you have recently put in a search term in Google, you may have noticed the results containing an expandable grid box. As you can imagine, this offers some great information to users that want additional questions answered without hunting for them. The boxes never come on the very top of of search results: Instead, they come further down the page inspiring the user to dig deeper.
More often than not, Google only creates question boxes for the most general, often searched terms.
Interestingly, these are not the ordered results of the search, but they are within the first page.
Obviously the quality of your content is going to matter a lot here, and probably more than whatever algorithm beyond quality Google uses.
Notice also: In the above example that company has a mini-site jump link within the search snippet taking you to the answer of the question within the page.
But it doesn’t hurt, and you want to do anything possible to improve your chances of being understood by a search engine better.
We have a very handy infographic on how to use Schema.org as well as a number of free Schema generators to help you out.
Trying to navigate the murky waters of how this algorithm works is going to be a hit and miss process. Mobile app, mobile website, desktop website -- how do you track their combined visibility in search? A bonus to look for would be automatic geolocation detection — the ability of the widget to detect where a customer is searching from. And, finally, there may be extra features you’d like to have to ensure the best possible experience for both users and your business.


Keep all of these necessary and optional features in mind when evaluating Store Locator widget choices. Pricing varies widely, from free to upwards of a $1,000 initial investment with reduced rates for subsequent years of service. I’m writing this because, having looked at a considerable number of live store locators while researching this article, I found landing pages like this one with next to zero content on them, landing pages like this one with a very meager attempt at content that is observably duplicative, and landing pages like this one with some duplicate content, but also, some added value for local users.
Am I handing out a lazy pass for all?Are lax standards a good reason to go with the minimum effort and call it a day? In a competitive scenario, if your store is the only one maximizing the potential for consumer engagement on your store landing pages, you are working towards impressing not just search engines, but customers, too. PRIVATE ISTANBUL TOUR ,A Day in Istanbul filled with History & Culture,Les Arts Turcs Tours are offering you a nice full day visit in the historical peninsula. Tour of "Sultan Ahmet Center", the heart of the "Old City" from where the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires were ruled. Istanbul Life ORG Tours are offering you a nice full day visit in the historical peninsula. Tour of "Sultan Ahmet Center", the heart of the "Old City" from where the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires were ruled. Hippodrome, center of sportive (chariot races, athletics) events and political activities of the old city.
Topkapi Palace Museum , this extraordinary and secret palace was the residence of the Imperial Ottoman Sultans and the center of the Ottoman might for nearly 400 years.The building are a typical example of Ottoman architecture and the rooms exhibit rich collections of porcelains, robes, weapons,shields,armors,Ottoman miniatures, Islamic calligraphic manuscripts as well as Ottoman treasures and jewellery. Turkish Islamic Arts Museum, orginally built 1524 as the palace of Ibrahim Pasha - Grand Vizier and brother-in-law of Sultan Soliman the Magnificient, it is now a museum presenting notable examples of Islamic calligraphy, tiles, rugs as well as ethnographic displays of various cultyres in Turkey, particularly nomad groups. The two screenshots show the results when dynamically switching between the dark and the bright theme.
At the end of the event, we’ll have some frosty beverages and snacks ready for some great discussions!
The annual simultaneous release has now grown to 39 projects with over 33 million lines of code, contributed by committers around the world. Apple takes care of billing, taxes, and other administrative tasks, and in return takes a 30% cut of all sales. Sven and me will give a free one hour live seminar on Xtext introducing the framework and demonstrating its new fancy features in Helios. Although I do enjoy a good Guiness I am also looking forward to the conference and the topics I am covering this week as well as the hours of travel to catch up on some pre-release tasks. The first half was about technical details and tips behind Android game development, but the second half was just about good game development for mobile platforms.
The user interface (UI) of an application is your front-line connection with the customer—if it doesn’t look good and work effectively the first time, your company reputation is at stake. Since we launched the campaign 171 people have joined as a Friend of Eclipse.   Thank you, thank you, thank you!
BTW, 5 of the plugins are hosted now on Eclipse Labs and using Mercurial as version control system behind. I quickly became the committer rights in the MercurialEclipse plugin - and now few months later I've managed all of my project updates in a full featured IDE without the command line. The name of the project is ARText and it is freely available to all AUTOSAR members as part of the Artop project.One of the biggest challenges when implementing the AUTOSAR standard is to create scalable solutions.
Tools like Google Analytics give us detailed information about not only what sources are driving the most traffic to our site, but also the quality of that traffic. It’s called auto tagging and I highly recommend turning it on for just about everyone. But measuring a user’s emotional engagement with a written post, or a video, or a specific product requires that we go beyond surface metrics like searches, clicks, and time on page.
I would certainly NOT go and implement sitewide changes to your site based on this or recent posts.
After logging into an account and navigating to the keywords tab, hover over the white speech bubble in the status column of your keyword.
If people who see an ad click it at a high rate, that indicates to Google that the ad fulfills a searcher’s need. When the keywords you bid on closely relate to the ad triggered, there is a better chance they will relate to the user’s search query.
Advertisers looking to rank in the top positions in the search results while not paying a premium should focus on achieving high Quality Scores.
Additionally, by creating highly relevant ads and landing pages, conversion rates will increase anyway.
However, monitoring QS across a PPC account can be a good diagnostic tool when looking at overall performance. When I first started looking at this, back in 2012, there was already a lot of discussion happening around the topic of mobile. Now, we talk about the other ways in which people can use and discover our apps — such as app indexation and app streaming. This means the number of people who view mobile as their primary web device has doubled in just 2 years, and we have every reason to believe that this trend with continue.
This is particularly noticeable on editorial sites, where an ad-revenue business model leads to lots of different elements required to load a page, despite the actual content being fairly lightweight.
The card-style layout, which makes the distribution of content easier on a variety of different screen sizes and types:2. This allows Google to serve the most relevant version based on the context which they have around that particular user and how they prefer to use the web.
This means a single interface for all types of searches, and eventually, an intelligent personal assistant which can anticipate your next question before you ask it.
Do you agree that it’s heading towards the development of intelligent personal assistants? I would certainly NOT go and implement sitewide changes to your site based on this or other recent posts.
The more narrowed the search term or phrase, the less likely it will be to have question boxes.
Looking at the related questions sources, they tend to be drawn from the most popular results from a search. The more clear, well-structured and informative your content, the more sense it will make for Google to choose to use the info over other websites.
I was never able find any correlation between having Schema markup and being featured in the related question boxes. On one hand, you are going to drive organic traffic by offering up a link to more information on a topic the searcher is already looking for. But that is something that is going to help you with your overall marketing strategy, so you are accomplishing a few important goals here (including creating a one-stop resource, attracting links, enjoying additional exposure in SERPs). This article is for the medium-to-large business with 20, 100, 500 physical locations and a pressing goal to have each one be found by the customers local to it. But when your company has grown beyond this, it simply isn’t practical to list dozens of locales in your top level navigation, whether on desktop or mobile devices.
If not, then you’ll have a problem with all travelers who may be trying to find your business in a strange city and have no idea what the local zip codes are.
This is must these days, given that as many as 50% of mobile queries may have a local intent. You don’t want to have to redevelop your website, just to get your widget to function. This might include search text autocompletion, the ability to sync with Google Docs to upload location data, or search filters that allow users to refine results based on personal criteria.
Captera has recently done a good job of profiling a number of popular options which should help you hone in on the right solution for your company. Wordpress offers a number of free and premium store locator plugins with varying degrees of popularity.
Not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, but, with the exception of the last example, the sheer volume of locations operated by these companies has likely caused their marketers to settle on the most minimal effort possible to differentiate between landing pages. Google is correctly finding for me each of these businesses in the right cities, both organically and locally, when I search for them. If you have hundreds of locations, the cost of going the extra mile on your store landing pages may not show any easily-discernible ROI. You could end up earning more than your fair share of those 50% of local-intent mobile queries, in city after city. We organise the tours as private or in small number of groups upon the date & requests.
Obelisk of Theodosius, Serpentine Column, German Fountain of Wilhelm II are the monuments decorating Hippodrome. The rest goes directly to developers.For free applications, developers can make money by showing advertisements instead of on the sale of the app.
I don’t follow the software methodology space that closely but I was surprised by the fact that 1) 25% of the respondents don’t use a methodology and 2) the most popular, Scrum, has only 15% adoption.  The rest of the respondents identified over 18 different methodologies that they use for a development methodology. In the survey, we asked a question about the corporate policies towards open source participation.


AUTOSAR projects might become very, very big and in order to work with such huge projects the tools need to perform very well. Urchin was a web analytics program acquired by Google back in 2005, which marked the beginning of GA. You need to empower the tool by setting up proper tracking parameters for all your marketing campaigns. Your Quality Score is then combined with your maximum cost-per-click bid to determine your Ad Rank. By working through Quality Score best practices, advertisers should see an increase in the performance statistics they value most.
Google announced that they saw a 4.7% increase in the number of mobile-friendly sites in the two months between announcing that the update was coming and when it actually rolled out. I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!Sign up for The Moz Top 10, a semimonthly mailer updating you on the top ten hottest pieces of SEO news, tips, and rad links uncovered by the Moz team. On the other, you are building your site authority by being one of a few to be chosen to provide answers to those common questions.
Search Console is introducing the concept of "property sets," which let you combine multiple properties (both apps and sites) into a single group to monitor the overall clicks and impressions in search within a single report. For any paid product, I recommend choosing only those which offer a free trial period of at least 1–2 weeks so that you can be sure the solution works for you. The last of these (REI) has actually done a good job of adding interest to their pages by including a regional event schedule. While I would never advise a small business to take a least-effort approach with their store landing pages, it’s my conclusion from my research that established brands can get away with a great deal, simply because they are established. If your marketing department throws its hands up in the air regarding differentiating store #157 from store #158, there may be a lack of available creative solutions to the scenario. Obelisk of Theodosius, Serpentine Column, German Fountain of Wilhelm II are the monuments decorating Hippodrome.
In 2009 48% claimed they could contribute back to OSS but in 2010 only 35.4% claim they could contribute back. Even after 13 years of helping customers use TopLink and now EclipseLink I still find diagnosing, solving, and innovating in these areas some of the most interesting work I take part in. Pretty much every mobile platform vendor is creating some sort of one stop shopping experience for their devices and it's a great vehicle for app developers to quickly get their wares into the hands of paying customers.
Xtext itself provides a concise language to describe DSLs, so that it takes only minutes to create a first draft of your language. The new car, the camper-trailer, the jet-skis, naming rights to the next planet…everything. It has to be a truly useful set of tools that fit our lives and bend to our moods, good and bad. Think of it as your exclusive digest of stuff you don't have time to hunt down but want to read! It seems you can get the right data in front of the customer with a very minor effort, and that the minimum requirements for data on those pages would be that they have correct company NAP on them and are indexable.
But, you, you smartie, have not only got a unique paragraph of text on your pages, but also store-specific reviews, and a maintained schedule of guided hikes in the region. It has a stainless steel outer cover that doubles as the antenna for Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, UMTS, and GSM.
Helping customers learn what they need to know about their models and application use cases and translating them into their object-relational mappings, schema, and usage of their persistence layer is challenging and often poorly understand by Java developers.The persistence layer enables performance and scalability but there are many simple decisions developers can make while configuring and coding to their persistence layer which are made early in projects and have big effects late in projects when trying to reach their performance and scalability goals. And with systems like Valve's Steam, you also get this great experience on your desktops and laptops.The biggest advantage of markets, as Chris illustrated, is that it's also a great way to keep in touch with your customers. You don't have to deal with complex meta programming or multiple syntax alternatives as you do in internal DSL development. We know it was tough to squeeze this additional work into your hectic pre-Helios schedules.
All three of you link to your respective landing pages from your Google My Business listings.
There’s a camera and LED flash on the back, and two microphones for noise cancellation (like the Nexus One).
If you're based in Germany's Ruhr area, you might want to visit the Eclipse Demo Camp in Dortmund. Customers tend to be brutally honest about what you've provided them, and it's good to get first hand looks at that feedback.
The feedback from all attendees was excellent.On the 3rd day of the Summit we focused more on the project itself. However, the folks at BMW Car IT wanted to develop AUTOSAR projects in a traditional text-based manner and given all the good experiences with tools like JDT or IntelliJ, it's clear that text-based IDEs can scale very well.In order to implement the language they first had tried the old Xtext version from oAW, which was way too slow.
This means that Search Analytics metrics aggregated by host will be aggregated across all properties included in the set. Apple has a good head start on Android, but Android is catching up fast.Most analysts feel it is inevitable that Android will surpass Android in the next couple of years given the dozens of partners producing the devices, all trying to compete with each other and with Apple in terms of price and features.
It has grown up from a tiny little editor generator to a mature language development framework. Starting with a talk from Jeff McAffer (EclipseSource) on OSGi and Eclipse RT technologies. Then, later, when the new TMF Xtext came around they gave it another try and saw that the performance had been improved significantly.
For example, at a glance you'll get the clicks and impressions of any of the sites in the set for all queries. But even for non-Xtext enthusiasts there will be nice demos, e.g on SAP's new graphical modeling framework "Graphiti", on developing Android apps with Eclipse and a lot more intriguing topics. Sebastian showed the following slide in his talk:After that he explained how they have solved a couple of other problems, such as supporting different releases of the standard or making the language extendable.
According to Jobs, 300dpi is about the limit that the human retina can distinguish at 10-12 inches away from the eye, so he’s calling this the “retina display”. And even better it seems that they've had as much fun using Xtext as we had and still have when developing (and using) it. Because the aspect ratio is exactly the same as older iPhones, no change is needed from developers and all old apps run unmodified.
I'm not talking about syntax coloring for Vim, but something close to what modern Java IDEs offer.
Along with a bigger battery, the chip provides up to 7 hours talk time, 6 hours 3G browsing, and 300 hours of standby.
We at itemis have already successfully implemented a couple of IDEs for various programming languages. If you have multiple properties verified in Search Console, we hope this feature makes it easier for you to keep track. If you have any questions, feedback, or ideas, please come and visit us in the webmaster help forum, or read the help documentation for this new feature! The new device has a real gyroscope in addition to the accelerometer that is standard now in most smart phones. At 16.00 pm our tour finishes and we take you to Kusadasi for free time and some shopping , we transfer you to Izmir airport for your flight to Istanbul and transfer back to your hotel. The camera’s megapixels have been increased to 5, plus they’re using a backside illuminated sensor for higher quality. 17.00 our tour finish and we transfer you to Kayseri airport for flight to Istanbul and transfer back to your hotel. There’s a camera in the front too (more on that later).To go with the new camera, Apple has written a new app called iMovie for iPhone. It allows you to edit movies with transitions, music, titles, and so forth right on your phone. Formerly called “iPhone OS 4“, the new operating system has a ton of new features including multitasking, unified inbox, conversation threading, and so forth.
With the new iAd platform, there’s a standardized, supported platform to create in-app ads that don’t bounce the user out into the browser. Apple sells and hosts the ads, and developers get a 60% cut via iTunes connect (the same way you get paid for your apps).iAds will be enabled July 1st but Apple has been selling spots for 8 weeks.
JP Morgan estimated the entire mobile ad market to be worth $250 million this year, so that’s a significant number.Originally Steve said he was going to highlight 8 features, but he couldn’t resist adding “one more thing”…9. You can set it up so the other person sees you (via the front camera) or what you’re looking at (via the back camera).
It uses other standards like H.264, AAC, SIP, STUN, RTP, SRTP, TURN, and ICE.So how much is all this going to cost you?
