    But with greater power, comes greater management complexity - Richard Morrell, Cloud evangelist and architect at Red Hat We’ve moved into a brave new dawn of computing power. The agile, dynamic and ever growing nature of Cloud services from a myriad of sources has enabled us to harness capabilities that we could only have dreamed of ten years ago. The ability we have now to spin up compute power, would traditionally have meant either the acquisition of a huge amount of unaffordable servers, or servers we couldn’t justify owning or leasing to satisfy the needs of a department or…

The Justice Dept. contended that the price-fixing conspiracy raised the price of some e-books from the $10 standard set by Amazon to $13-$15.

  • Difference between Dependency Injection and Factory Pattern in Java

    30 Jun 2015 | 5:14 am
    TL;DR Main difference between dependency injection and factory pattern is that in case of former dependency is provided by third party (framework or container) while in case of later dependency is acquired by client class itself. Another key difference between them is that use of dependency injection result in loosely coupled design but use of factory pattern create tight coupling between factory and classes which are dependent on product created by factory. Though both Dependency Injection and Factory pattern looks similar in a sense that both creates instance of a class, and also promotes…

    Javin Paul
    27 Jun 2015 | 8:53 pm
    A String is said to be Palindrome if it is equal to itself in reverse order. You can use this logic to check if String is Palindrome or not. There are two common ways to find if a given String is Palindrome or not in Java, first by using for loop, also known as iterative algorithm and second by using recursion, also known as recursive algorithm. The crux of this problem lies in how do you reverse String in Java? because once you have the String in reverse order, problem reduced to just comparing itself with the reversed String. If both are equal then given String is Palindrome otherwise…
