SpikeSource Releases Free Developer Tools for the Open Source Community

SpikeSource Releases Free Developer Tools for the Open Source Community

OPEN SOURCE BUSINESS CONFERENCE, SAN FRANCISCO, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- SpikeSource, an open source IT services company, announced today the availability of free software for the open source community. The Spike Asset Manager (SAM) and Spike PHPCoverage tools help software developers and enterprise IT professionals integrate, test and manage their open source assets.

SAM is an open source, cross-platform framework for identifying and reporting locally installed open source components. Spike PHPCoverage is an application that provides code coverage analysis for the testing of software developed using the PHP programming language. SAM and Spike PHPCoverage are active open source projects on SourceForge.net.

Spike Asset Manager

SAM, which helps manage existing open source assets, includes a driver file that probes for components commonly found in a LAMP/LAMJ stack (Apache, MySQL, PHP, Tomcat, etc). SAM can find multiple versions that are installed in a local disk, query an RPM database or operating systems repository, and listen to standard ports and indicate which components are running. It operates as a standalone tool and does not send any information to SpikeSource.

SAM can be extended by writing extension plug-ins or by creating additional directives for the driver file. SAM currently looks for 88 components, including Apache httpd, Axis, Commons-Logging, Hibernate, Java, Jetspeed, JBoss, log4j, MySQL, OpenLDAP, OpenSSL, Perl, PHP, Python, Spring, Struts and Tomcat. SAM is available at http://www.spikesource.com/projects/sam/

Spike PHPCoverage

The PHP language has rapidly gained popularity for development of interactive websites, and now enjoys a strong developer following. However, to date there has not been a tool that reports on PHP code coverage. SpikeSource has developed Spike PHPCoverage, a code coverage analysis utility that shows developers how much of their PHP code is being executed by a test suite. SpikeSource has released Spike PHPCoverage as an open source project so the community can use it and extend it to meet their needs. Spike PHPCoverage is available at http://www.spikesource.com/projects/phpcoverage/.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

He is currently Chief Strategy Officer at the industry-leading digital strategy and online community solutions firm, 7Summits.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
