WSO2TORIAL: I like  to move it - Moving files with WSO2 ESB VFS transport (Part 1)

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 17 Aug, 2017

One of the lesser documented transports in the WSO2 ESB is the VFS (Virtual Files System) transport. This Axis2 transport allows you to move files from one location to another. But how do we use it? In this WSO2 Tutorial we will look into the WSO2 ESB VFS system and will move 10000 files from location A to Location B.

How to fool visual recognition tools (and how to foolproof them)

Posted by Ruben van der Zwan on 15 Aug, 2017

Robots and autonomously operating devices are scary. They’ll probably outsmart us eventually and take over the world. When this happens, mankind is doomed, as you don’t argue with out-of-control monsters with superior reasoning skills. Luckily for us, this is not A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick, but real life. And although future machines will be far superior in many tasks, we’re still a long way from developing such creatures (if we ever will). But that doesn’t mean we don’t have issues. When it comes to device safety, it’s still our fellow human beings that form the biggest threat. People with bad online intentions (A.K.A black hat hackers) keep on finding new ways of sabotaging autonomously operating devices that were developed to make our lives better, easier and safer. How do they do it? And more importantly: can you stop them?

WSO2TORIAL: A primer on Dead Letter Queues in the WSO2 ESB

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 10 Aug, 2017

The WSO2 ESB supports all Enterprise Integration Patterns. For those of you who do not know what that is: enterprise integration patterns are generic solutions to common IT or business problems.

3 ways how IT is reshaping the automotive industry

Posted by Yenlo on 8 Aug, 2017

Cars used to be judged by their looks, speed, power, and rims. Slick car salesmen knew exactly how to sell them and made big money by making the headlights shine and remotely opening the sunroof. Those days are long gone. Slick salesmen are out of fashion, and the car dashboard is where the real magic happens. Today, a great car can be recognized by the degree to which it resembles a computer. It’s no coincidence that CES, the global consumer electronics and consumer technology tradeshow in Las Vegas has all major car brands as exhibitors. Great news for drivers, that benefit from cool tools that come with every Tesla or BMW they buy. But what about you? How can your company use the digital storm that rages through the automotive industry? In this blog, we’ll tell you about three interesting options.

WSO2TORIAL: The lost artifact - Sequence template in the WSO2 ESB

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 3 Aug, 2017

A Sequence Template is a parametrized sequence, providing an abstract or generic form of a sequence defined in the WSO2 ESB. Parameters of a template are defined in the form of XPath statement/s. Callers can invoke the template by populating the parameters with static values/XPath expressions using the Call Template Mediator, which makes a sequence template into a concrete sequence.
