Compilers vs. interpreters

Compilers vs. interpreters: explanation and differences

Over the years, programming languages have become increasingly simplified to make learning and using them as easy as possible. One of the key concerns is to ensure optimal readability of the code written in the given language. Compilers and interpreters are needed to convert the source code into machine code so that it can later be read by computer processors.

Continuous delivery

Continuous delivery – software development in the pipeline

With continuous delivery, software developers automate the process of development, quality assurance, testing, production, and delivery. This gives them the opportunity to deliver software to the customer at a much earlier stage of development while the program continues to be developed. The continuous delivery pipeline required for this is divided into different test phases. What are these, what...

Uniform Resource Name

URN: The Uniform Resource Name Explained

How can we be sure that we are all talking about the same object? The Uniform Resource Name (URN) makes it possible to clearly identify a resource – regardless of when and where. This has proven especially useful for libraries. Books and magazines, as well as movies and videos, can be assigned a name with URN, regardless of where the media is presently located.

Reverse Engineering of Software

Reverse engineering software

The process of “reverse engineering” allows you to understand the functionality and structure of software. By reverse engineering software down to the source code, it is not only possible to understand incorrect messages, but also to analyze competing programs. Reverse engineering can therefore be used in many ways. But how exactly is reverse engineering applied in software development?

Binary Large Object

BLOBs (Binary Large Objects): introduction

BLOB is short for Binary Large Object. The data types in a BLOB are typically classified as being unstructured data. A typical example of an unstructured data type is multimedia files, which are usually stored in databases as a BLOB. Since databases cannot read the unstructured data in BLOBs, special data processing methods are required.

Character Large Object

What are CLOBs (Character Large Objects)?

Databases normally save information in database blocks. The size of the data plays a key role here: Especially large data objects that exclusively comprise strings are saved as CLOBs (Character Large Objects) or TEXT and are usually stored with a reference. Read the following article to find out what’s behind the CLOB data type as well as the advantages and disadvantages it provides.
