Leverage Semantic SPARQL endpoints and DBpedia content

Tap into vast amounts of fielded information stored in a publicly accessible collection called DBpedia. With a little CGI scripting, build forms that drive a SPARQL query under the covers, with access to the semantic Web's largest database for people who've never heard of the semantic Web.

Jaspersoft Announces Series of Major Updates to Community Edition, Membership in “Open Source for America”

New visualization features, enhanced OLAP tools and support for community platforms top the list of updates designed to advance critical BI projects


SAN FRANCISCO, July 22, 2009 - Jaspersoft, provider of the world’s most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced the availability of Jaspersoft Community Edition v3.5, with features and updates aimed at helping its community progress their priority BI projects.


Jaspersoft today also joins 50 industry leaders as one of the founding members of Open Source for America, an organization that will serve as a unified voice for the promotion of open source software in the U.S. Federal Government arena. For more information, please read Jaspersoft CEO Brian Gentile’s comments on his blog at or visit the organization’s website at


“Customers across industries and from governments around the world are flocking to open source software now more than ever,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “Jaspersoft Community Edition is well-equipped to address the needs of these new users with broad usability and a deep set of features and capabilities that allow them to implement simple, powerful and affordable business intelligence to support a wide variety of business requirements.”


Many of the new features available today improve usability and data visualization, including Gantt charts, barcodes and chart themes (with an associated chart themes editor) to simplify creation of reports containing visually appealing content. Jaspersoft Community Edition users also get access to simplified development of multi-component reports, a revised OLAP user interface and engine, and extended platform support.


The JasperAnalysis Schema Workbench, a desktop OLAP design tool, has been rewritten to support the latest version of the Jaspersoft OLAP engine and provide increased usability with additional validation, pop-up menus and prompts for schema elements that are schema- and database-aware. New MDX Query features include automatic generation of default MDX queries, reducing the time and effort required to develop and deploy OLAP environments.


The new versions of the JasperServer Community Edition and JasperAnalysis Schema Workbench can be downloaded at:




Jaspersoft today is also announcing new open source platform support through partnerships that include:


  • Monty Program, the company founded by MySQL® creator Monty Widenius and that in collaboration with the open source community develops MariaDB, a GPL-licensed branch of MySQL Database Server.


“Our MariaDB customers and users want a best-of-breed business intelligence solution, so it feels natural and most comfortable to turn to an open source BI leader,” said Monty Widenius, CEO of Monty Program.  “We are proud to team with Jaspersoft to mutually serve our customers.”


  • The JBoss Community project Teiid, which aims to provide best-of-breed solutions for applications to use data from multiple heterogeneous data stores through data abstraction and federation.  

" The combination of open source BI and reporting with open source data virtualization is a natural fit,“ said Ken Johnson, senior product manager, Red Hat. “Through Teiid, users have the opportunity to produce consolidated, real-time views of data from heterogeneous sources that JasperServer can utilize for drill-down analysis or production-level reporting.”

Jaspersoft also recently extended its partnership with Infobright to provide a new virtual machine download, a freely available open source bundle that includes an end-to-end BI and data warehousing solution. The virtual machine includes Infobright’s high-performance database and Jaspersoft’s BI software, and enables users to quickly deploy a complete analytic solution.  The BI virtual machine can be downloaded at


Additional Jaspersoft Community Edition updates include JasperETL v3.1 with improved visibility and support for search of job designs and a customized palette for your preferred components; embedded Perl for Windows users simplifying setup and configuration; and expanded language support including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian.

This is my first blog entry on  I have been working with Unix since 1982, starting with Unisoft 7th Edition, System III & V, and the very early days of 4.x BSD-based Sun-1 systems.  I have been working with Linux since about 1998, starting with fairly early Slackware and Red Hat distributions.  The majority of my professional career has been working with DEC/Compaq/HP systems running Ultrix/OSF-1/Tru64 Unix, and IBM systems running AIX 2, 3, 4 and 5.  (Including the RT/PC 6150 running AIX 2.x).

As I look around my home desk right now, I see the following:

- Fujitsu Lifebook S6510 (the system I am using to write this), multibooting:

    - Ubuntu 9.04

    - Mandriva 2009.1

    - openSuSE 11.1

    - Fedora 11

    - Linux Mint

     - PCLinuxOS 2009.2

    - MEPIS 8.0.06

    - Debian 5.0

    - Windows XP Professional

 - Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook S2110, multibooting the same selection as the S6510

- HP 2133 Mini-Note, multibooting the same selection plus

    - SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 & 11

- ASUS N10J, multibooting:

    -  Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04

    - Moblin 2.0 Beta

    - Ubuntu 9.04 (Standard Distribution)

    - Mandriva 2009.1

    - openSuSE 11.1

    - Fedora 11

    - Windows Vista Business

- Self-assembled Dual Atom "nettop", multibooting the same as the N10J, plus:

    - Linux Mint 7

    - MEPIS 8.0.06

    - PCLinuxOS 2009.1


As I suppose the above list implies, I am interested in exploring various Linux distributions on various hardware platforms.

First Review of Pardus 2009 !


 Yes its the rocking,fastest KDE 4 distro yet :) .

 The fact that Pardus made me actually enjoy using KDE 4 is by itself an indication of the overall quality of this operating system. It's easy to install, easy to configure, 100% up-to-date and more importantly, very stable. I've used many distributions that shipped with ages-old software "for improved stability" that performed much worse than Pardus. Hopefully, the future will bring a bigger software repository and maybe support for other desktop environments.

Turkey, you've got yourself one of the finest OSes out there!

C'mon get it


Mengembalikan GRUB yang hilang di UBUNTU...

Mengembalikan GRUB yang hilang di UBUNTU

Yang harus disiapkan untuk mengembalikan GRUB adalah :

  1. Live CD atau USB Bootable Ubuntu

  2. Gunakan Terminal (jangan ke stasiun lho...)

    1. sudo grub

      Pada terminal, ketikkan sudo kemudian menekan tombol spasi yang dilanjutkan dengan mengetik grub dan diakhiri dengan menekan tombol enter. Perintah ini dimaksudkan untuk memanggil GRUB.

      Tunggu beberapa saat hingga ditunjukkan grub prompt grub> Selanjutnya, dari grub prompt inilah perintah - perintah berikut diketikkan.

    2. sudo find /boot/grub/stage1

      Pada terminal, ketikkan find kemudian menekan tombol spasi yang dilanjutkan dengan mengetik /boot/grub/stage1 dan diakhiri dengan menekan tombol enter.

      Perintah ini dimaksudkan untuk mencari file stage1. Tunggu beberapa saat, hingga muncul hasilnya. Contoh: (hd0,5)

    3. root (hd0,5)

      Pada terminal, ketikkan root kemudian menekan tombol spasi yang dilanjutkan dengan mengetik (hd0,5) dan diakhiri dengan menekan tombol enter.

      Catatan: Perintah setelah root, harus disesuaikan dengan hasil yang didapatkan pada perintah sebelumnya. Jika pada perintah find /boot/grub/stage1 didapatkan (hd0,8), maka pada langkah ini perintah yang harus diketik adalah root (hd0,8).

    4. setup (hd0,5)

      Pada terminal, ketikkan setup kemudian menekan tombol spasi yang dilanjutkan dengan mengetik (hd0,5) dan diakhiri dengan menekan tombol enter.

      Catatan: Perintah setelah setup, harus disesuaikan dengan perintah sebelumnya. Jika pada perintah root (hd0,8), maka pada langkah ini perintah yang harus diketikkan adalah setup (hd0,8).

    5. reboot

      Pada terminal, ketikkan reboot yang lalu dengan menekan tombol enter.

  3. Selamat, GRUB sudah berfungsi kembali.

Cukup mudah. Tidak banyak perintah yang perlu diketik. Dan juga tidak memerlukan waktu yang cukup lama untuk mengembalikan GRUB. :)


The Linux treasure chest

Think of GNU/Linux as a treasure chest.

The chest is very easy to find since its available from many different locations and comes in many different flavours. You simply choose the contents of any chest and use what you need. For the most part you dont even have to pay for it, its free of charge. And if the contents of a particular chest is not to your liking, try another one, or add your modifications into the chest for everybode else to try. 

The whole concept of GNU/Linux is sharing. The GNU/Linux community is sharing ideas as well as code. Since there are many ideas, one chest cant hold them all. Thereby we get all these distributions which differ from one another in design and implementation, but also have a lot in common. Many of the basic ingredients remain the same.

I have used a lot of different distributions over the years. I started using GNU/Linux around 1996 so I have seen how GNU/Linux has progressed from a techie operating system to becoming more mainstream for the average consumer. Or has it? In reality the tech operating system still exists, but in many more versions than before. The technology under the hood is still there, but today you dont have to work your keyboard until your fingers bleed. if you wish you can simply use your mouse, click a few times and it will work. So basically today both the techies and the average consumers can get satisfied by the same GNU/Linux operating system.

With GNU/Linux you have on one hand the Linux from Scratch project where you can create your own distribution. Thats a level of control which is hard to match. On the other hand you can consider Linux Mint which is beutifully packaged and easy to manage for most average consumers. Thats one of the many strengths with GNU/Linux, the ability of choice. 

This blog will try to highlight the contents of the GNU/Linux treasure chest, both good and bad. I have used many other operating systems such as almost all Windows versions up to the Windows 7 Release Canditate as well as MacOs X. They also have their treasure chests, but my focus will remain on GNU/Linux. If you are wondering why I write GNU/Linux instead of just Linux its because I have to agree with Richard Stallman on this one. Without the GNU project, the Linux kernel would be in serious trouble and likewise of course, but they owe each other credit and I wish to respect them both so, GNU/Linux it is.




Microsoft telah menjadi kontributor untuk kernel Linux

Yang Anda baca benar - Microsoft telah menjadi kontributor untuk kernel Linux. Microsoft dan Greg Kroah-Hartman telah mengumumkan tentang hal ini secara lebih rinci, jadi saya akan mendorong anda untuk membaca posting orang-orang untuk keterangan lebih lanjut. Yang panjang dan kekurangan itu, meskipun, adalah bahwa Microsoft telah memberikan kontribusi sekitar 20.000 baris kode ke kernel Linux yang berhubungan dengan Hyper-V driver mereka.

Si Greg mengatakan, hal ini tidak berbeda dengan perusahaan lain yang berkontribusi untuk kernel Linux - banyak perusahaan yang menjadi kontributor untuk kernel, jadi mengapa tidak Microsoft? Di sisi lain, adalah Microsoft, sehingga mereka telah berbalik sejauh 180 derajat menjadi sebuah kontributor kernel. Garis bawahi ini benar-benar akan pentingnya Proyek Linux Driver Greg yang telah bekerja di.

Ia juga menggarisbawahi pentingnya dialog yang terbuka dengan perusahaan. Minggu ini, si Greg di San Jose untuk OSCON. Sedikit lebih dari 10 tahun yang lalu, saya masih di San Jose untuk LinuxWorld Expo, dan ide dari kontribusi Microsoft adalah sebuah kernel driver. Bersama waktu, kita lihat perkembangannya...
