My blog on all kinds of stuff...
In case you come by here, note that I'm moved over to Wordpress (http://eikonne.wordpress.com/) and I'm also now available on Twitter (@eikonne).

Nigerians and observers alike have been very critical of the presidential elections that recently occurred in the motherland. I don't want to suggest that I settle for less or that how the elections were run are acceptable, however, it is true that a baby doesn't start running because the adults around it can walk. As a friend of mine reminded me today, ......

Via Dare's post: Define: Servant, I came to find out that some of my Nigerian brethren did not take kindly to his description of the fellow in the picture below as a "servant". Check out http://naijaman.cfmxdevelop... and http://grandioseparlor.com/... Should his picture have called the ......

REST touts that a "progresses through an application by selecting links (state transitions) resulting in the next page.... To borrow from a commonly used example, if I have a web service that "gets a list of parts", the URI to get the parts would look like this: http://www.parts-depot.com/... and the "response" contains a list of links to the individual ......

I've been gone for a long time now; hopefully I'm back. I discovered http://astoria.mslivelabs.com/ today and it is pretty interesting. Underneath the covers, the "Entity Data Model" (EDM) is used (a post for another day) and it seems like there is a conscious effort not to mention "resources". The samples provided also bring some questions about resource/state ......

Rocky blogs that 98% of the systems being built out there are "trivial" or at least can be solved by "trivial" solutions. Is this really the case? He also contends that most applications are a "viewer (form, page, screen)" over data and development tools such automat this, attributing unecessary complexity to tool vendors, framework builders, architects ......

A lot of time has been spent debating REST versus WS-*, examples are given based on what have been qualified as “simple” services. For instance, a RESTian example that shows how to retrieve a list of orders (or cars) or a WS-* (dare I say SOAP?) example that shows how to consume a service that returns the current weather. There has been ......

It's been a while, been busy with work and all that. I've decided to venture into the realm of RESTful Web Services. As is popularly quoted, “in theory, theory and practice are the same, but in practice, they are different”. Trust me, I am still drinking the REST kool-aid and I definitely believe it solves a certain set of problems. You ......

Via Don Box, I stumbled on this Why I Hate Frameworks. Quite humorous and actutally a good read. Frameworks exist at multiple levels e.g. in my opinion System.IO is a framework. However, just like everything else, things can be overdone which leads invariably to Technology (maybe now Framework?) Overload. What do you think ......

So Mr.Box posts Pragmatics and he's generated quite a buzz. Bottom line (unfortunately) is that something has to ship, and with the toolsets available SOAP seems the easier/easiest option right now. Clemens has a series of articles that I need to read up on to see how “Indigo can do REST”. I wonder how many .NET based REST implementations ......

Arnon posts here Exceptions and SOA that "...(innerException) the original error" - do not expose internal implementation out side of the service - only what's in the contract - in other words don't, just don't bubble exceptions out of your service. Well I wonder what the verbiage of the exception should be? If a null pointer occurred in the service, ......

Does anyone even understand this article?

What value does it provide other than to make me wonder what the point of the article is!!

Enlighten me if you may.



So why do you blog?

Is it to share information?  React to something you've read, seen or heard?

Do you care if people react to what you say?  Or is just having an outlet of expression ok?

 



I had to hook myself up with a new dish (Dish network) so I could actually catch my Super Eagles (Nigeria) playing in Egypt and avoid having to drive to Chicago this year. I was impressed that Telesud actually has the commentary in English even though its a French channel. Back to the tournament. Cameroon is the best team that I've watched so far. They ......

I've been out of pocket for a couple of weeks.  Went home (Nigeria) for Christmas and New Year.  Visited Aruba immediately after that and finally just waltzed in the office last week.  Honestly, I need a vacation from the vacation.

Anyway, I hope to be back blogging shortly...
