UML for REALbasic


REALbasic is an object-oriented programming language for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux computers. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) is the industry-standard notation for modeling object-oriented software. This paper shows how to extract a UML design from a REALbasic project, model REALbasic software using UML, and generate REALbasic code from UML.

Not too many years ago, the prospect that ERP and SCM vendors would embrace Linux as a serious platform for their applications seemed laughable.

No Back Doors. No Open Windows.


To boot or pre-boot, that is the question. There’s no doubt that operating systems (OSs) are complicated given the sheer amount of code that must be flawlessly interfaced and the potential vulnerabilities that can ensue. While full disk encryption (FDE) is one step closer to a more secure OS, encryption without strong authentication isn’t enough. For security-conscious users, pre-boot authentication is the only way to go.

Does Microsoft Have Something Against 64-Bit Processors?


More cracks appear in the Wintel duolith, as Linux appears to be the first OS “ready for prime time” on Intel’s 64-bit “Itanium” processor. Despite Microsoft’s statements to the contrary, Linux may also be the only 64-bit OS on Itanium for awhile.

But according to an internal Microsoft memo, dated Jan. 1, 2000, viewed by Sm@rt Reseller , the software company expects to release Beta 2 of Whistler, its next version of Windows following Windows 2000, as its first Read More
