webMethods Developer is the Java-based Integrated development environment (IDE) for developing code on the webMethods Integration Server.
It allows development in webMethods Flow which is a graphical programming language designed to simplify and speed up integration application development. With version 7 of the webMethods product suite, webMethods Developer started to be replaced by webMethods Designer, an Eclipse-based IDE. This transition has not been finished yet and both products exist side by side.
Writing graphical flow and java services (the programming logic)
Defining and modifying documents and mapping logic
Testing, debugging and executing services
Creation and configuration of web services
Editing adapter service and notifications (used to connect with external systems)
Ad hoc analysis is a business intelligence process designed to answer a single, specific business question. The product of ad hoc analysis is typically a statistical model, analytic report, or other type of data summary.
Ad hoc reporting refers to reports that are put together creatively by users in real-time, rather than pre-designed according to a template.
An ad hoc report is a report that is created on the fly, displaying information in a table or a chart that is the result of a question that has not already been codified in a production report. There is a limit to the number of such production reports and business questions that can be anticipated and coded in advance so that users can consult them whenever they want.
Moreover, as businesses are always changing, the questions people want to ask of their data are always changing, so any reporting system needs to accommodate the creation and running of ad hoc reports. Making that an easy process for the average business user is key because most ad hoc reporting tools are designed for database experts to use, often requiring knowledge of structured query language, or SQL.

Meteor.js is a cohesive development platform, a collection of libraries and packages that are bound together in a tidy way to make web development easier. It builds on ideas from previous frameworks and libraries to offer an easy way to start a prototype app, but it gives you the tools and flexibility to build a full fledged production app. There are libraries like Tracker and Blaze that the Meteor Development Group has built specifically for a reactive front-end experience.
Meteor.js is an open-source platform built on Node and MongoDB. It’s not just a framework, it’s more than that.
Is it comparable to Angular? Angular handles just the frontend parts of application. Meteor is more of a platform than Angular. It is both server and client-side code and handles a lot of the parts of applications that we need to create manually in Angular.
Electron is an open-source project from GitHub that lets us create cross-platform desktop applications with web technologies. It doesn't matter which specific framework we use; if it works for the web, it works for Electron. We can use Angular 2 for Electron apps, and in this tutorial, we explore how to get a desktop image size calculator app wired up.
