A demo showing how the NetKernel NKP Protocol can scale. It shows a server running in the cloud with a large number of concurrent clients connecting.
New Enterprise Representation CacheLast week we had a get together with representatives of some of our key partners in Brussels. There, amongst other things, I demonstrated a key new technology that I’ve been working on for the last couple of months. This is an all new enterprise grade representation cache. The NetKernel representation cache is a mechanism for storing the responses from endpoints with the aim of eliminating duplicate computation. This is made possible because every computation is uniquely identified with a combination of resource identifier and request scope.
Dynamic GrammarsLast week I received a request for advice on an interesting problem from Grégoire Colbert. He’s given me permission to share his request and I hope to share with you the solution. Let’s imagine that I have a constantly evolving OWL file of living species. I want NetKernel to read this OWL resource, and allow the user to get a representation for each entry in the OWL file : > /birds/sparrow > /fishes/tuna The difficulty is that when NetKernel starts, I (as a programmer) don’t have any idea of what the OWL file will contain, and so I cannot write a static grammar with /birds/sparrow and /fishes/tuna.
