Id Based Locking

We ‘invented’ (at least we say we invented it, until someone else claims the authorship), that kind of locking, where you lock not an object itself, but what the object means in the real world (or at least in your domain). It was long part of the ano-utils project. However ano-utils is a bit bloated, so we refactored it into a small separate project, without any further dependencies to external libs.

I will not repost the explanations why it is needed and what it does, instead just a link to  the github page, that explains everythinghttps://github.com/anotheria/idbasedlock

Lock on!

The complete MoSKito integration guide – Step 1

  • record a Journey.

Lets go!

But before we start, we need a guinea pig. This is what we do today – set up a simple application for experimental purposes.

The intention of this post is to explain who’s who in MoSKito Universe. Meet the Swarm!
