What is Cordova ?

Cordova ,formerly called as Phone Gap is a platform to build Native Mobile Applicatons using HTML5, CSS and Java Script.
Apache Cordova is a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Apache Cordova is a platform for building native mobile applications using HTML, CSS and JavaScript.Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

When using the Cordova APIs, an app can be built without any native code (Java, Objective-C, etc) from the app developer. Instead, web technologies are used, and they are hosted in the app itself locally (generally not on a remote http server).

And because these JavaScript APIs are consistent across multiple device platforms and built on web standards, the app should be portable to other device platforms with minimal to no changes.

Apache Cordova graduated in October 2012 as a top level project within the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). Through the ASF, future Cordova development will ensure open stewardship of the project. It will always remain free and open source under the Apache License, Version 2.0.

What is Apache Velocity?

Apache Velocity is a Java-based template engine that provides a template language to reference objects defined in Java code. Here is a conversation or quarrel between Velocity (Apache) developers and Spring ones revolving around the reason why Velocity is not supported on the Spring framework.

Velocity is a Java-based templating engine.

It’s an open source web framework designed to be used as a view component in the MVC architecture, and it provides an alternative to some existing technologies such as JSP.

Velocity can be used to generate XML files, SQL, PostScript and most other text-based formats.The core class of Velocity is the VelocityEngine.

It orchestrates the whole process of reading, parsing and generating content using data model and velocity template.

Here are the steps we need to follow for any typical velocity application:

  • Initialize the velocity engine
  • Read the template
  • Put the data model in context object
  • Merge the template with context data and render the view

Velocity Template Language (VTL) provides the simplest and cleanest way of incorporating the dynamic content in a web page by using VTL references.

VTL reference in velocity template starts with a $ and is used for getting the value associated with that reference. 

VTL provides also a set of directives which can be used for manipulating the output of the Java code. Those directives start with #. 


#set ($message = "Query Home")
#set ($ = "Sandeep Bedi")​

What is Apache Pig?
Pig is a high-level platform for creating MapReduce programs used with Hadoop. The language for this platform is called Pig Latin. Pig Latin abstracts the programming from the Java MapReduce idiom into a notation which makes MapReduce programming high level, similar to that of SQL for RDBMS systems.

 Pig's language layer currently consists of a textual language called Pig Latin, which has the following key properties:

Ease of programming. It is trivial to achieve parallel execution of simple, "embarrassingly parallel" data analysis tasks. Complex tasks comprised of multiple interrelated data transformations are explicitly encoded as data flow sequences, making them easy to write, understand, and maintain.
Optimization opportunities. The way in which tasks are encoded permits the system to optimize their execution automatically, allowing the user to focus on semantics rather than efficiency.
Extensibility. Users can create their own functions to do special-purpose processing.

Pig runs on Apache Hadoop YARN and makes use of MapReduce and the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The language for the platform is called Pig Latin, which abstracts from the Java MapReduce idiom into a form similar to SQL. While SQL is designed to query the data, Pig Latin allows you to write a data flow that describes how your data will be transformed (such as aggregate, join and sort).

The user can run Pig in two modes, using either the “pig” command or the “java” command:

MapReduce Mode. This is the default mode, which requires access to a Hadoop cluster.
Local Mode. With access to a single machine, all files are installed and run using a local host and file system.
