Calculate date and time ranges in Groovy

  • (Posted by bob on Aug 27, 2021 2:12 PM EST)
  • Story Type: News Story

This project is to start on the 1st of August and finish on the 31st of December. The service to be provided is budgeted at 10 hours per week. So, yeah, I had to figure out how many weeks between 2021-08-01 and 2021-12-31 inclusive. This is the perfect sort of problem to solve with a tiny Groovy script. read more

Use this open source tool for automated unit testing

  • (Posted by bob on Aug 25, 2021 7:56 PM EST)
  • Story Type: News Story
Modernizing and transforming legacy applications is a challenging activity that involves several tasks. One of the key tasks is validating that the modernized application preserves the functionality of the legacy application. Unfortunately, this can be tedious and hard to perform. Legacy applications often do not have automated test cases, or, if available, test coverage might be inadequate, both in general and specifically for covering modernization-related changes.

Access your iPhone on Linux with this open source tool

  •; By Don Watkins (Posted by bob on Aug 23, 2021 9:58 PM EST)
  • Story Type: Tutorial; Groups: Linux, Mobile

Open source programmers came to the rescue back in 2007 (just a year after the iPhone's release) with Libimobiledevice (then called libiphone), a cross-platform solution for communicating with iOS.
