Best way to visit Statue of Liberty

Well it actually depends on how much time you have and for how long you are in New york. If you are in states for shorter time then probably you would take a ferry from battery park.

Going from battery park you may have to be in long queues for tickets then ferry and same when you take the ferry back from Ellis island and statue of liberty.

But if you are around new york for a longer time and you are traveling with kids then the best way is to rent a car and go to liberty state park in Jersey City. And if you are coming from Connecticut then I would suggest that you take Tappan Zee bridge and Garden state parkway. From Stamford, CT we found this route most convenient and traffic free.

From the Jersey side the queues are much much shorter, no waiting. Would strongly recommend especially if you are traveling with kids. We felt so relieved when we went there last weekend with nine month old baby, it would have been so hard to stand in long queues. Also the time that you save from standing in queues you can enjoy more on island.

The ferry from Jersey first take you to Ellis island and then to statue of liberty. Ellis island you will like if you love to learn history. You will enjoy more time at Statue of liberty, very good views of New York, if you can take a sheet would be good to sit on grass and feel the breeze coming from shore.

Have fun !!

Drools - An overview

For Java based applications the most challenging part has always been the business logic maintenance, and pick any applications which you find complex and if we ask ourself how complex it would be moving forward, the answer will always be nX times.

What do we do ? Drools comes for Rescue as a Rule Engine.

Drools provides mechanism:

a. To write business logic in simple english language
b. Easy to maintain and very simple to extend
c. Reusability of logic by defining keywords in a DSL file and using them in DSLR file.

But be careful nothing comes free, everything takes cost in terms of memory and time space.

Use Drools if you really have :

a. Business logic which you think is getting cluttered with multiple if conditions because of variety of scenarios
b. You will have growing demand of increase in the complexity
c. The business logic changes would be frequent (1 - 2 times a year would also be frequent)
d. Your server's have enough of memory as it is a memory hungary tool, it provi…

MQTT - Eclipse Paho integration for Android

For MQTT integration, recently explored Paho Android project, very simple to use, here are the steps:

Intialize a client, set required options and connect.

    MqttAndroidClient mqttClient = new MqttAndroidClient(BaseApplication.getAppContext(), broker, MQTT_CLIENT_ID);
    //Set call back class
    mqttClient.setCallback(new MqttCallbackHandler(BaseApplication.getAppContext()));
    MqttConnectOptions connOpts = new MqttConnectOptions();
    IMqttToken token = mqttClient.connect(connOpts);


Subscribe to a topic.

    token.setActionCallback(new IMqttActionListener() {
      @Override
      public void onSuccess(IMqttToken arg0) {
           mqttClient.subscribe("TOPIC_NAME" + userId, 2, null, new IMqttActionListener() {
                @Override
                public void onSuccess(IMqttToken asyncActionToken) {
                    Log.d(LOG_TAG, "Successfully subscribed to topic.");
                }

                @Override

Mobile Testing

Mobile application testing falls into broadly two types:

Hardware Testing This includes testing internal hardware, screen size, resolution, space, camera, Bluetooth, WIFI etc.
Software or Application Testing This includes testing the application that are running on device. Because of types of apps this can be divided into following categories: Native appsMobile web appsHybrid apps There are some key things to be considered when testing mobile apps: Native apps have single platformNative apps are written in platforms like SDKs while Mobile web are written in html, cssNative/Hybrid apps may or may not require internet connectionMobile web apps require internet connectionNative/Hybrid apps are downloaded from playstoreMobile web apps are accessible from internet Mobile Testing complexity in comparison web applications Different range of mobile devices, screen sizes etc.Various manufactures customizationsOS types iOS, Android, Windows etc.Different versions of OS e.g. Android 4.x, 5.x, 6.x, 7.x…
