Web Site Testing with MaxQ

MAXQ is a web proxy with recording and replay features. It is designed to capture and replay tests. They are quite keen that one understands the terms of use of target sites since many prohibit automated access and these days it would seem defend themselves against it.  This article documents how to run MaxQ and make tests, but not how to successfully run them. (If that’s why you’ve come here, look elsewhere but if you have answers please comment here. ) Continue reading “Web Site Testing with MaxQ”

SPARQL on WordPress

For various reasons I needed to look at SPARQL again. What’s the easiest way to put it up?, Here! I’ve been working with LH-Tools which is commented on at its authors site, and LH-RDF. I did not get this to finish satisfactorily, mainly based on my lack of SPARQL skills. May 2015

Pool Party are now playing. i,e. there’s a Pool Party plugin.

I have errors occurring when using LH-RDF; see the comments to track. Jan 2017

I need to incorporate the HTML output in a wordpress page and also apply the wordpress style rules to the HTML. I solved this problem by generating three html files, a feed, a source key and an output format key and then including them in the host page. Continue reading “Planet, mingle & wordpress”

About Maps and Data

This is an omnibus article on data visualisation using maps. I went back to map visualisation solution in the autumn of 2014. This maps tag retrieves the the articles on this wiki. My current interests is in web hosted maps visualisations and thus in wordpress. I have also found this article, 10 Free Tools For Creating Your Own Maps. A couple of these look very interesting. UMapper and HeatMaps look rather fun. I have also experimented with Tableau Software’s public aka community release. Continue reading “About Maps and Data”
