Enter the world of Internet of Things with the power of data science with this highly practical, engaging book About This Book * Explore real-world use cases from the Internet of Things (IoT) domain using decision science with this easy-to-follow, practical book * Learn to make smarter decisions on top of your IoT solutions so that your IoT is smart in a real sense * This highly practical, example-rich guide fills the gap between your knowledge of data science and IoT Who This Book Is For If you have a basic programming experience with R and want to solve business use cases in IoT using decision science then this book is for you. Even if your're a non-technical manager anchoring IoT projects, you can skip the code and still benefit from the book. What You Will Learn * Explore decision science with respect to IoT * Get to know the end to end analytics stack - Descriptive + Inquisitive + Predictive + Prescriptive * Solve problems in IoT connected assets and connected operations * Design and solve real-life IoT business use cases using cutting edge machine learning techniques * Synthesize and assimilate results to form the perfect story for a business * Master the art of problem solving when IoT meets decision science using a variety of statistical and machine learning techniques along with hands on tasks in R In Detail With an increasing number of devices getting connected to the Internet, massive amounts of data are being generated that can be used for analysis. This book helps you to understand Internet of Things in depth and decision science, and solve business use cases. With IoT, the frequency and impact of the problem is huge. Addressing a problem with such a huge impact requires a very structured approach. The entire journey of addressing the problem by defining it, designing the solution, and executing it using decision science is articulated in this book through engaging and easy-to-understand business use cases. You will get a detailed understanding of IoT, decision science, and the art of solving a business problem in IoT through decision science. By the end of this book, you'll have an understanding of the complex aspects of decision making in IoT and will be able to take that knowledge with you onto whatever project calls for it Style and approach This scenario-based tutorial approaches the topic systematically, allowing you to build upon what you learned in previous chapters.
Design and implement real-world web-based applications using the Spring Framework 4.x specification based on technical documentation About This Book * Learn all the details of implementing Spring 4.x MVC applications from basic core platform construction to advanced integration implementations * Gain a complete reference guide to implementing the controllers, models, views, view resolvers, and other service-related components to solve various real-world problems * Discover the possible optimal solutions for developers and experts to build enterprise and personal web-based applications * Create a Spring MVC application that has a validation process and exception handling with the HTTP status codes Who This Book Is For This book is for competent Spring developers who wish to understand how to develop complex yet flexible applications with Spring MVC. You must have a good knowledge of JAVA programming and be familiar with the basics of Spring. What You Will Learn * Set up and configure the Spring 4.x MVC platform from ground level up using the basic Spring Framework 4.x APIs * Study requirements and manage solutions on file uploading transactions in Spring 4.x applications Configure, , and test Spring integration to the Hibernate, MyBatis, and JPA frameworks for database transactions * Properly implement exception handlers and audit trails in Spring MVC applications * Generate reports using JFreeChart, Google Charts, JasperReports, DynamicReports, FreeMarker, Velocity, and Spring's API known as ContentNegotiatingViewResolver * Configure security and flexibility by adding Captcha, Spring Security, Spring Flow, Spring Portlets, JTA to improve data management performance * Implement web services using Spring's RESTful implementation and other service-oriented integration plugins * Design and implement a Spring 4.x application using AngularJS, ExtJs, Twitter Bootstrap, and Spring Mobile for responsive web design In Detail Spring MVC is the ideal tool to build modern web applications on the server side. With the arrival of Spring Boot, developers can really focus on the code and deliver great value, leveraging the rich Spring ecosystem with minimal configuration. Spring makes it simple to create RESTful applications, interact with social services, communicate with modern databases, secure your system, and make your code modular and easy to test. It is also easy to deploy the result on different cloud providers. This book starts all the necessary topics in starting a Spring MVC-based application. Moving ahead it explains how to design model objects to handle file objects. save files into a data store and how Spring MVC behaves when an application deals with uploading and downloading files. Further it highlights form transactions and the user of Validation Framework as the tool in validating data input. It shows how to create a customer feedback system which does not require a username or password to log in. It will show you the soft side of Spring MVC where layout and presentation are given importance. Later it will discuss how to use Spring Web Flow on top of Spring MVC to create better web applications.
