    Create a two-wheeled, self-balancing robot using Raspberry Pi 2 Model B with GPIO and I2C interfaces and Java 8 in part I of this new series by Jose Cruz. To control the robot's movement and balance, he uses three modules: a sensor that contains a three-axis gyroscope and an accelerometer, a pulse width modulation (PWM) servo driver, and a motor driver. These modules create a feedback control loop that balances the robot and automatically corrects its position. 

    As Cruz explains, balancing a robot is an example of the classic inverted pendulum problem, in which a large mass is placed at the end of a pole. He provides an explanation of the mathematics that make this solution possible, and then he shows how to create the necessary Java ME 8 classes for controlling the robot.

  • 07/07/16--00:00: Tag Cloud in Oracle JET
  • Here in the Oracle JET Cookbook the Oracle JET Tag Cloud is described. Here's the JSON file that is used there, which I have put in the "public_html" folder of my project.

    What we'll create is the same as in the Cookbook, except we'll parse the JSON file with "JSON.parse" and we'll use a "define" block.

    Here's a 'define' block for working with the "ojtagcloud" component:

    define(['text!../../socialNetworks.json', 'ojs/ojtagcloud'],
        function (file) {
            function mainContentViewModel() {
                var self = this;
                self.tags = [];
                var content = JSON.parse(file);
                for (var i = 0; i < content.length; i++) {
                    var network = content[i];
                        id: network["id"],
                        label: network["id"],
                        value: network["total"],
                        shortDesc: network["id"] + ': ' + network["total"] + '%'
            return new mainContentViewModel();

    Then here's the view:

    <p style="font-weight:bold;text-align:center;">
      Social Networks Used by US Internet Users (Ages 14-54)
    <div data-bind="ojComponent:{
            component: 'ojTagCloud',
                    layout: 'cloud',

      • 07/08/16--00:00: Timeline in Oracle JET
      • Let's take the "ojTimeline" component from the Oracle JET component library, as described here in the Oracle JET Cookbook, while taking note of the format of the related JSON file here. Then, downloading that file into our Oracle JET application and changing the details in the JSON file, let's recreate the NetBeans Roadmap in Oracle JET, with this result:

        Here's the business logic in JavaScript, i.e., the "define" block, including a selection listener:

        define(['text!../../seriesOneData.json', 'knockout', 'ojs/ojtimeline'],
            function (file, ko) {
                function mainContentViewModel() {
                    var self = this;
                    self.selected = ko.observable("Nothing is selected.");
                    var content = JSON.parse(file);
                    self.series = ko.observableArray(content)();
                    self.optionChangeListener = function (event, data) {
                        for (var i = 0; i < content.length; i++) {
                            if (content[i].id == data['value']) {
                return new mainContentViewModel();

        And here's the HTML view that renders the above:

        <div data-bind="ojComponent:{
            component: 'ojTimeline',
                    majorAxis: {scale: 'years'},
                    minorAxis: {scale: 'quarters'},
                    start: new Date('Oct 1, 2013').toISOString(),
                    end: new Date('Oct 31, 2016').toISOString(),
                    optionChange: optionChangeListener,
                    selectionMode: 'single',
                    series: [{ 
                        id: 's1',
                        emptyText: 'No Data.',
                        items: series,
