Moving Renewable Energy Embedded Systems Into the Cloud: Loopback, Look Ahead

NOTE: This is the fourth installment in my ongoing development of a fully cloud-connected, IoT-based Renewable Energy system. Please visit these earlier articles if you'd like to review what was discussed previously: Episode 1: In the Beginning... Episode 2: The Devil is in the Details, er, Devices Episode 3: Activate Containment Field Welcome Back Ever have one of those weeks where you accomplished a lot of very essential things, but none were exactly the stuff of spy novels?...

Moving Renewable Energy Embedded Systems Into the Cloud: Activate Containment Field

NOTE: This is the third installment in my ongoing development of a fully cloud-connected, IoT-based Renewable Energy system. Please visit these earlier articles if you'd like to review what was discussed previously: Episode 1: In the Beginning... Episode 2: The Devil is in the Details, er, Devices For the past few days, I've been focusing upon creating Docker containers that provide the foundations for a hosted application and its underlying database. What's that? Why Docker?...

Moving Renewable Energy Embedded Systems Into the Cloud: The Devil is in the Details, er, Devices

NOTE: This is the second installment in my ongoing (re-)development of a fully cloud-connected, IoT-based Renewable Energy system. Please click here to read the initial article for more information about the overall vision, "legacy" system, and proposed architecture. Please keep in mind that these things may change to accommodate new requirements, constraints, etc. Agile development depends upon agility.  :) Over the past week, most of my efforts on the system have focused...

Moving Renewable Energy Embedded Systems Into the Cloud: In the Beginning...

"It was a dark and stormy night." No, not that kind of beginning. Although (spoiler alert), there are clouds involved.  :) I've been running a Renewable Energy (RE) system at my house for the past three years. It's comparatively small, providing power only to our 12'x16', two-story utility shed in a corner of our backyard. Although there are electrical connections running between house and shed, the RE system provides nearly all power consumed outside of our house...and...

Point of Clarification: NetBeans, JSF, and MySQL Primary Keys

Recently I was working on a project using JavaServer Faces with a MySQL backend (Yes, I jump around a lot! Or as I like to say, I go where the voices in my head tell me to go.). :) While discussing the project with another dev there, I referenced an earlier post I had written about a small "gotcha" I'd encountered with the code NetBeans generates as a first-cut for JSF CRUD apps. NetBeans does a great job producing a framework that you can build upon for many (many many) types...

How to Create a Positronic Brain for Your Drone

For this year’s JavaOne, Jim Weaver, Sean Phillips, and I presented a session entitled Creating Our Robot Overlords: Autonomous Drone Development with Java and the Internet of Things. We invested a lot of energy and had a great time developing several components that contributed to a more intelligent drone, and the presentation was well-received. There is SO much to be done, though, and we’re just getting started! That said, we’ve been slower than we’d like in sharing some of...
