Winning Project Bot-So

“Bot-So is not just a robot; we tried to personify it by making it present in social media." explains Debraj Dutta, director, EdifixioIndia. Bot-So, a smart social robot that interacts with you via Twitter won the IoT Developer Challenge last month.

Created by Debraj Dutta, Tapas Bose, and Avinaba Majumder from Edifixio India, the robot can be deployed for remote home surveillance by sending a tweet. It surveys your interior space when the motion detector is triggered.

"And what could be a better platform than the Oracle Internet of Things Developer Challenge to showcase Bot-So to the world. We are really excited about this project and believe it will have a lot of good use in society. We are thrilled that we have won this award and we look forward to doing a lot more things to take Bot-So further and be a key contributor to the Internet of Things revolution” adds Debraj Dutta.

Meet the team at JavaOne 2014, from September 28 to October 2, 2014.

Java Champion Jim Weaver Announces Winner of the JavaFXpert RIA Exemplar Challenge at JavaOne

In October of 2009, Java Champion Jim Weaver announced the JavaFXpert RIA Exemplar Challenge, which was intended to "Create an application in JavaFX that exemplifies the appearance and behavior of a next-generation enterprise RIA (rich internet application)".

Weaver is announcing the winner in each of his JavaOne 2010 sessions.

And the winner is..........

Abhilshit Soni, a 24 year old Software Engineer living in Mumbai, India, who holds a Bachelor of Technology in BioInformatics and currently works with Zycus as a Software Engineer in the Product Engineering Team. Soni has been involved in developing web-based enterprise applications based on Java EE and Spring technologies for almost three years. He won for his Beechcraft Loader application, which "tries to solve a typical engineering problem of loading cargo containers into a Cargo aircraft. It needs a proper way in which your aircraft should be loaded with containers so that the resultant center of gravity of the aircraft is stable."

Each of the participants was asked how their entry exemplifies the appearance and behavior of a next-generation enterprise RIA. Soni's response:

"To an end user the enterprise RIA is more about the way user sees the information shown in the application. All that an end user expects from an enterprise RIA is to access the information in the fastest and coolest looking way. The definition of coolest may be interpreted as drag drop interfaces, animation and effects, different data viewing formats, but not at the cost of performance. By using JavaFX I have tried to achieve the same to an extent by adding drag-drop spot data update in multiple formats like grid and charts, and also onclick zooms, animations and effects with performance as priority."

Further details are here.

Congratulations go to Abhilshit Soni for his fine work and to Jim Weaver for putting together a contest that brings out the best in JavaFX developers!
