Security features available with IE 7+ to help protect security and privacy
Internet Explorer 7+ provides the following security features to help protect security and privacy when a user surfs the Internet:
- Protected mode: The protected mode feature of IE 7+ prevents a computer from saving the files or programs of a Web site. Protected mode makes it more difficult for malware to be installed. In case such a program is installed, it makes difficult for the program to damage a user’s file and other operating system files. Protected mode is enabled by default for Internet, local intranet, and restricted sites. However, it is not enabled for trusted sites.
A transaction is a unit of work that consists of a group of activities performed as a unit such that either all or none of them succeed. An example of where transactions could take place is an online bookstore. In an online bookstore, the purchasing of books involves the following steps:
- A customer creates an account with the bookstore.
- He chooses the books from a given list and adds them to the shopping cart.
- He is asked for his credit card information.
- The credit card information is verified, and the books are delivered to the customer.
Implementing High-Level User interface in MIDP
Developing a user interactive application is a daunting task. A developer needs to be very careful and understanding while developing an application that supports a user interface. He should very intelligently use colors in the application, so that it does not pinch in the eyes of users or appear as overdone. He should be careful while using the user interface components such as text box, check box, etc. For example, if only one of the two options must be selected then instead of using check box, radio buttons should be used.
Developing Multi-Threaded .NET Applications
A thread is a sequence of code execution within a single process. It does not have its own address space. However, it uses the memory and other resources of the process in which it executes. A thread consists of identification, a stack, a register set containing the program or the instruction pointer, the stack pointer, and a priority. A process can have multiple threads that execute independently and concurrently with its own sequence of instructions. Therefore, multiple operations are performed concurrently within a single process and each operation is treated as a thread. Multiple operations are also referred to as multi-threaded operations.
