This year’s Summer School on Reasoning Web focused onapplicationsof semantic technologies insoftware engineeringand the reasoning technologies appropriate for such an endeavor with an emphasis on description logics (DL) as reasoning formalisms forthe Semantic Web, ontologies and domain specific languages as a means for modeling, process semantics for process refinement and grounding as well as semantic query languages. The volume contains a collection of six thoroughly revised tutorial papers based on lectures given by leading researchers.
Developing Software for Symbian OS (2nd Edition)
Steve Babin –DevelopingSoftware for Symbian OS: A Beginner’s Guide to Creating Symbian OS v9 SmartphoneApplicationsin C++ (2nd Edition)
Published: 2007-11-28 | ISBN: 0470725702 | PDF | 460 pages | 3 MB
Many problems encountered by engineersdevelopingcode for specialized Symbian subsystems boil down to a lack of understanding of the core Symbianprogrammingconcepts. Developing Software for Symbian OS remedies this problem as it provides a comprehensive coverage of all the key concepts. Numerous examples and descriptions are also included, which focus on the concepts the author has seendevelopersstruggle with the most. The book coversdevelopmentranging from low-level systemprogrammingto end user GUIapplications. It also covers thedevelopmentand packaging tools, as well as providing some detailed reference and examples for key APIs. The new edition includes a completely new chapter on platform security.
The overall goal of the book is to provide introductory coverage of Symbian OS v9 and helpdeveloperswith little or no knowledge of Symbian OS to develop as quickly as possible. There are few people with long Symbian development experience compared to demand, due to the rapid growth of Symbian in recent years, and developing software for new generation wireless devices requires knowledge and experience of OS concepts. This book will use many comparisons between Symbian OS and other OSes to help in that transition.
Get yourself ahead with the perfect introduction to developing software for Symbian OS.

Software Abstractions: Logic, Language, and Analysis (revised edition)
Daniel Jackson –SoftwareAbstractions: Logic, Language, andAnalysis(revised edition)
Published: 2012-02 | ISBN: 0262017156 | PDF | 376 pages | 3 MB
InSoftwareAbstractions Daniel Jackson introduces an approach tosoftware designthat draws on traditional formal methods but exploits automated tools to find flaws as early as possible. This approach–which Jackson calls “lightweight formal methods” or “agile modeling”–takes from formal specification the idea of a precise and expressive notation based on a tiny core of simple and robust concepts but replaces conventionalanalysisbased on theorem proving with a fully automated analysis that givesdesignersimmediate feedback. Jackson has developed Alloy, a language that captures the essence of software abstractions simply and succinctly, using a minimal toolkit ofmathematicalnotions. This revised edition updates the text, examples, and appendixes to be fully compatible with the latest version of Alloy (Alloy 4).
The designer can use automated analysis not only to correct errors but also to make models that are more precise and elegant. This approach, Jackson says, can rescuedesignersfrom “the tarpit of implementation technologies” and return them to thinking deeply about underlying concepts. Software Abstractions introduces the key elements: a logic, which provides the building blocks of the language; a language, which adds a small amount of syntax to the logic for structuring descriptions; and an analysis, a form of constraint solving that offers both simulation (generating sample states and executions) and checking (finding counterexamples to claimed properties).
Software Defined Networking with OpenFlow
Siamak Azodolmolky, “Software Defined Networking with OpenFlow”
2013 | ISBN: 1849698724 | 138 pages | EPUB | 4 MB
OpenFlow is an open interface for remotely controlling tables in network switches, routers, and access points. It is considered a turning point in Software Defined Networking (SDN), data center networking and virtualization as, more secure and efficient data centers are being built using OpenFlow. It defines a protocol that lets a controller use a common set of instructions to add, modify, or delete entries in a switch’s forwarding table.
Starting with an introduction to SDN and OpenFlow, you will learn about the role of each building block, moving onto demonstrations of how SDN/OpenFlow can be used to provide new services and features, which will change the way that networking works and the innovative business impacts. By the end of thispractical guide, you will have an insight intothe SoftwareDefined Networking and OpenFlowfundamentals.
Packed with detail, this book will walk you through the essentials; you will learn about the OpenFlow protocol, switches, and controllers. Following on from this, you will be taken through a number of practical, hands-on examples on how to use a network emulation platform called OpenFlow laboratory. You will learn how to develop your innovative networkapplicationusing the OpenFlow controller’s API quickly, and test your networkapplicationwithout commissioning any OpenFlow hardware equipment. You will also be introduced to the concept of Software Defined Networking and the details of OpenFlow’s protocol, along with the building blocks of an OpenFlow networking deployment. This book will teach you how to setup your OpenFlow/SDN laboratory using state-of-the-art technology andopen sourceofferings.
Object-Oriented Software Construction
Object-Oriented Software Construction By Bertrand Meyer
2000 | 1290 Pages | ISBN: 0136291554 | PDF | 11 MB
The developer of the acclaimed Eiffelprogramminglanguage comes through with one of the clearest and most informative books about computers ever committed to paper. Object-Oriented Software Construction is the gospel of object-orientedtechnologyand it deserves to be spread everywhere. Meyer opens with coverage of the need for an object-oriented approach tosoftware development, citing improved quality anddevelopmentspeed as key advantages of the approach. He then explains all the key criteria that define an object- oriented approach to a problem. Meyer pays attention to techniques, such as classes, objects, memory management, and more, returning to each technique and polishing his readers’ knowledge of it as he explains how to employ it “well.” In a section on advanced topics, Meyer explores interesting and relevant topics, such as persistent objects stored in a database. He also offers a sort of “Do and Don’t” section in which he enumerates common mistakes and ways to avoid them. Managementinformationisn’t the main point of Object-Oriented Software Construction, but you’ll find some in its pages. Meyer concludes his tour de force with comparisons of all the key object-oriented languages, including Java. He also covers the potential of simulating objecttechnologyin non-object-oriented languages, such as Pascal and Fortran.
