Using Apache's BPEL: Installing the Designer into Eclipse (ODE)

After more than 5 year after getting in touch with BPEL and many postings about Oracles BPEL PM and SOA Suite i wanted to see, how easy it is to get started with Apaches BPEL implementation.It is called ODE (Orchestration Director Engine) and eclipse provides BPEL Designer Project as modelling infrastructure.

Google indoor maps: How to use...

Yesterday i read at about Google indoor maps were released for Germany. So i tried to take a look at the indoor map of Frankfurt Aiport but i only got:

No indoor map. Was this headline wrong? I searched around and found

Newest Android version is installed on my tablet... Why does this not work? So i zoomed that the map scale showed 50m:

Windows 8: Blue screen of death (BSoD) is back and its more helpful like ever before

After installing Cisco VPNClient on a Windows 8 pc, the system got unstable and every 30-60s a BSoD and a reboot occured.
After 5 times the BSoD changed to the following screens:

i chose troubleshoot:

Reset did not really looked like what i wanted, so i chose "refresh your pc":

  • Your files and personalization settings won't change
  • Your pc settings will be restored to their defaults
  • Apps from Windows store will be kept
  • Apps that you've installed from discs or websites will be removed

Doesn't look good, but i think this is better than starting from scratch:

And after several minutes Windows 8 was stable again, but i lost all applications installed from discs and websites. Only some portable programs were still there...

Android Update: 4.2.1

Two weeks after the upgrade von Android 4.1 to 4.2 my devices was updated to Android 4.2.1.
There is no official statement about the bugfixes or changes in this version. The only information is the confirmation screen before the update:

(The webpage only contains a description about 4.2. No information about 4.2.1).
After the update:

The size of the update was only 1.1 MB. So it is not really suprising, that the kernel version for 4.2.1 is the same as for 4.2...
After the update several applications hung and the Nexus 7 was not really responsive -> but after a additional reboot everything was fine again....
