When it comes to [Jenkins], it has long been known that [polling must die]. While we could go and create post commit hooks in all the ASF hosted Git repositories, that is something that realistically is just creating an added maintenance burden. ... [More] In any case, we have [GitPubSub]. The question then becomes, how do we integrate [GitPubSub] with [Jenkins]? Thankfully, ASF committer stephenc is also an active committer to the [Jenkins] project and created a [plugin] that connects to [GitPubSub] parses the events and passes them through to the Jenkins [SCM API]. What does this mean? * You can turn your Git polling down - way way down - to something like once per day. This should significantly reduce the load on both the ASF git servers and builds.apache.org* Your builds will be triggered in seconds rather than having to wait for the next polling run.* You can try out using Multi-branch projects much like the [Maven] project has been doing for [Maven core] and [Maven Surefire] If the reaction to this change proves positive, the next step will be to integrate SvnPubSub with Jenkins and bring the benefits to the Subversion based projects too See also this blog post by Stephen Connolly: https://www.cloudbees.com/blog/using-multi-branch-pipelines-apache-maven-project [polling must die]: http://kohsuke.org/2011/12/01/polling-must-die-triggering-jenkins-builds-from-a-git-hook/[GitPubSub]: https://www.apache.org/dev/gitpubsub.html [Jenkins]: https://jenkins.io/ [plugin]: https://github.com/stephenc/asf-gitpubsub-jenkins-plugin [SCM API]: https://plugins.jenkins.io/scm-api [Maven]: https://maven.apache.org [Maven core]: https://builds.apache.org/job/maven-3.x-jenkinsfile/ [Maven Surefire]: https://builds.apache.org/job/maven-surefire-pipeline/ Posted on behalf of Committer Stephen Connolly (stephenc) [Less]

With Phoenix 4.10, we are rolling out a new feature that introduces a layer of column mapping between Phoenix column names and HBase column qualifiers. We have also added the capability of packing all column values for a column family into a ... [More] single HBase cell. These improvements have helped improve performance across the board for the majority of use cases. In this blog, I will be going providing a bit more detailed info on these performance improvements. Column Mapping The motivation behind column mapping came from PHOENIX-1598. The key idea being that we should be using number based hbase column qualifiers for non-pk Phoenix columns instead of directly using column names. This helps Phoenix replace the need of having to do a binary search when looking for a cell in the sorted list of cells returned by HBase. This helps improve performance of certain queries (like ORDER BY or GROUP BY on non-pk axis) as the number of non-pk columns go up. The indirection also enables us to write fast DDL operations like column rename (PHOENIX-2341) and metadata level column drops (PHOENIX-3680). Further, because these number based qualifiers are generally smaller (1 to 4 bytes) than column names, the disk size of tables is smaller which improves performance across the board. To compare performance and disk space usage, we loaded 600 million rows of TPC-H data for LINEITEM table (downloaded from here) on to our test cluster using 1-byte qualifiers. HDFS disk size with column mapping was 40% smaller (100 GB) than with non-column mapped tables (160GB). As a consequence, the queries in the TPC-H benchmark against LINEITEM table (obtained from here) were also found to be 30-40% faster. Column mapping also enables us to write custom projection and comparison filters that improve query performance as the number of columns being projected or filtered on go up (PHOENIX-3667). We did a test run where we compared query performance against non-column mapped and column mapped tables as the number of columns go up. As the graph below shows, as the number of columns projected increased, the performance gain by using the new filter also went up.  Using column mapping is generally recommended unless you expect number of columns in your table and views on it to exceed 2147483647 (which is a lot!). Keep in mind though that for mutable tables this limit applies across all column families. For immutable tables, when using SINGLE_CELL_ARRAY_WITH_OFFSETS encoding scheme, this limit applies to per column family. In general, we expect that using a 2-byte column mapping scheme, which gives you 65535 columns, is good enough. One can override these defaults by using various table properties and configs. For more details on how to use column mapping and immutable data encoding, go here. Immutable Data Encoding The immutable storage scheme called SINGLE_CELL_ARRAY_WITH_OFFSETS packs columns belonging to a column family in a single cell. This drastically reduces the size of immutable data resulting in impressive size reduction and faster performance across the board. To compare performance of queries for immutable encoded and non-encoded tables, we created a table with 25 VARCHAR non-pk columns, with each column name being 10 characters long having 15 character wide values. The table was dense i.e. more than 50% of the columns had values. HBase FAST_DIFF encoding was enabled which is the default with phoenix tables. All the queries were run with NO_CACHE hint to negate the effect of query performance because of block cache. We also made sure to take into consideration the effect of data being present in the OS page cache by ignoring query results for the first few runs. As the graphs below show, using SINGLE_CELL_ARRAY_WITH_OFFSETS encoding drastically improves the performance for most kinds of queries. Data load time for 1M records using UPSERT with a batch size of 1000 was 3x faster. So were aggregate queries and queries that filtered on key value column. There was no significant impact on point queries though, which is expected. It is important to note that this encoding could only be used when one of the numbered column mapping schemes is used. This is because internally the encoding relies on these number based column qualifiers to look up values of columns. Future work/Limitations Using the SINGLE_CELL_ARRAY_WITH_OFFSETS encoding scheme is recommended when the data is not sparse. Our general recommendation is to use this encoding when data is sufficiently dense (around 50% of columns have values). With growing sparseness the overhead of encoding starts negatively affecting performance (PHOENIX-3559). Also, we have seen that with the default HBase block size of 64K, performance starts to degrade once the size of the packed cell starts exceeding 50 KB. By default, for immutable multi-tenant tables, we use the ONE_CELL_PER_COLUMN encoding. Because of the way we assign column qualifiers for columns in views, it tends to make the data sparse especially when columns are added to views (PHOENIX-3575). There is also work that needs to be done for cleaning up data when a column is dropped from an immutable table with SINGLE_CELL_ARRAY_WITH_OFFSETS encoding (PHOENIX-3605). [Less]

Omnichannel Orders - Does your system support it? Omnichannel is a business model that is focussed on increasing customer experience. Apache OFBiz makes use of the Omnichannel concept as part of its standard functionality i.e. it provides a type of ... [More] retail solution that integrates the different shopping methods made available to consumers (e.g. online, in a physical shop, or by phone). Omnichannel Order Management Systems (OMS) enables retail businesses to go that extra mile to seamlessly cater for their customer expectations. In this article, we will talk about Omnichannel order management system capabilities, its importance and the main things to look for when you want to improve the way that your customer orders products from you. How Important Is It? Today, every retailer with a presence on the internet wants to make use of online orders. But, is it enough to just to empower your customers to place orders through your company website (i.e. eCommerce Store) ? As you start taking orders online, you will find that there are many other additional challenges that come along the way. e.g changes to customer orders, requirements changes and how do you manage returns or refunds etc. All of these things need to be considered and managed. Generally, tasks like these are done by a Customer Service Representative (CSR). A CSR is someone who is familiar with the the backend application being used and is also the main contact with the customer regarding any order problems. Customer satisfaction is always the topmost priority for any business so knowing your customer and having their profile and order history handy can really help the CSR to make decisions based on any specific business rules or guidelines. How Can It Make Your Employees and Customers Happy? Your customers want to have a seamless experience when they visit your e-Commerce store, and the list below contains some of the important points to include or incorporate. Does your existing software have these backend abilities to - search and view orders from customers make changes to the order for item quantity or any other details fulfill the orders and keep track of it manage returns and refunds review customer profile review customer purchase history take orders by phone, email or through any other channel keep track of inventory order Online/Pickup In-Store/Return In-Store All of these functions are the core part of any Omnichannel Order Management system. It makes your customers happy because they get all the information they need online when they need it. It makes your employees happy because they have all the information available when dealing with a customer online or via the phone. Having the right information available and accessible is the key. On top of all of this your system should be customisable. Not everyone wants to work in exactly the same way, so being able to customise what you want, when you want is important to a business. Another aspect is scalability, many businesses start off small and then grow so your software system should be able to scale and grow as you grow. Omnichannel and Apache OFBiz Apache OFBiz is an open source product for the automation of enterprise processes and includes these core Omnichannel order management capabilities. If you have a software system which actually provides you with most of the core functionality that you are looking for and is easily customizable/extendable/expandable then it makes your job a lot easier. OFBiz has a proven track record of serving many Business to Consumer (B2C) implementations, please check here for details Apache OFBiz User List If you want to explore possibilities with OFBiz as a solution evaluator or developer then please refer to the OFBiz blog post - Apache OFBiz - How and where to start? In future posts, we'll take each of the Omnichannel OMS capabilities in turn and walk through the processes and the support OFBiz offers. Thanks for taking the time to read this post and please feel free to provide your comments and feedback. This blog post was written by Pranay Pandey Apache OFBiz Committer. [Less]

The Apache Incubator Logo Selection Committee is pleased to announce the new logo for the Apache Incubator: This selection was chosen from results collected on the mailing list with minor cosmetic alterations. All submissions for the new ... [More] logo were of great quality and it was a tough decision to choose just one. Though we do feel that this design has great symbolic representation with the incubator and builds upon the previous logo. The committee also requested an alternate design for specific cases where gradients are not preferred. This design could be used on printed documents where gradients do not always print well; black and white versions have also been made. You can expect all versions in a range of formats (svg, pdf, png) to be available in the coming weeks. In order to aid the transition from the old design to the new, a collection of examples for the "Powered By" format will be made available as the Apache Incubator Project Management Committee (PMC) will require projects to retire old forms of these logos. We would like to see all incubating projects updated to use the new logos by the end of June 2017 at the latest. The Apache Incubator PMC will use the incubating reports as a method to track which projects are compliant. We hope that the Apache Incubator PMC and community are happy with our choice, and thank all the designers for submitting some excellent designs. # # #  [Less]
